Ranked number one in the LED projector category for six consecutive years, LG Electronics is set to unveil two new projectors at IFA, Europe's largest consumer electronics and home appliance show.
In Berlin, LG will be introducing its ProBeam UST (Ultra Short-Throw) laser projector (model HF85JA) and LG MiniBeam (model PH30JG).
The LG ProBeam UST offers a Full HD (1080p) image in a ultra-short throw design. Ultra Short-Throw projectors are convenient as they do not require professional installation, a jumble of unsightly cables or expansive space between the projector and the screen, the ProBeam UST only requiring 12cm to display a 100-inch image. And the ProBeam UST does not require its own stand - simply place it on any existing furniture and it becomes movie night. And never again cast a shadow on the screen when getting up for more popcorn.
The LG ProBeam UST generates up to 1,500 ANSI lumen of brightness, 1.5 times brighter than LG's previous UST projector. And the ProBeam UST's 150,000:1 contrast ratio ensures that every TV show or movie will look accurate. What's more, the light source in the ProBeam UST is durable, estimated to last up to 20,000 hours. Its I-shaped laser engine gives it a slim profile.
The LG ProBeam UST offers a host of options to connect it to a number of wireless speakers or headphones. Its four corner keystone feature corrects both horizontal and vertical distortion of the picture providing maximum flexibility to position the ProBeam UST in many different ways. And this device comes with LG's webOS Smart TV platform, giving viewers access to streaming services.
The LG MiniBeam is an easy to use portable projector also set to debut at IFA 2017. An HD projector with a built-in battery that lasts up to four hours, the MiniBeam packs plenty of cord-free power to play back two full-length movies. Multi-Angle Projection allows the device to be tilted up to 70 degrees to display an image high on a wall or even on the ceiling without the use of a tripod.
USB Type-C compatibility gives the MiniBeam the ability to connect and mirror other devices such as laptops and smartphone and charge its internal 9000mAh battery with a single cable. The MiniBeam can send an audio signal to any other Bluetooth-enabled device - wireless speaker, smartphone even a car audio system.
