LG Electronics is set to unveil its second-generation CineBeam Laser 4K projector (model HU85L) with Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology at CES 2019.
This new device builds upon the success of LG’s first 4K projector (model HU80K) and continues to stand out from the crowd with its minimal space requirement and compact design that can project 4K images on practically any flat surface – a wall, floor or ceiling.
With UST technology, LG CineBeam Laser 4K can be placed a little more than 2 inches from the wall to project a 90-inch diagonal image. Placed 7 inches away, the projector produces a much larger and still bright 120-inch image.
The new projector is delivering 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution. It can reproduce highly accurate colors courtesy of its wide color gamut, which further increases the realism of every picture displayed. The projector also provides plenty of content options, enabling users to stream movies and shows from their favorite services while USB, Ethernet and HDMI provide more connectivity choices.
The projector can be easily moved and adjusted for any environment. It offers enhanced visual accuracy with a 12-point keystone adjustment feature, eliminating the image distortion that often affects other UST projectors.
The inclusion of AI technology enables consumers to use voice commands to access the natural language processing capabilities of LG’s AI solution, ThinQ. Viewers can actually control the operation of the projector by saying, “turn off projector after the movie has finished” or narrow the content to view by telling the projector to “play yoga videos on YouTube”. Viewers can access a list of movies starring their favorite actors then select the content by speaking into the included Magic Remote. The Magic Remote also recognizes gestures and features backlit buttons for easy navigation which turn on automatically when motion is detected.
