Update (08/28/2019): LG is exhibiting the CineBeam 4K UHD projector lineup at IFA 2019. LG’s first Ultra Short Throw 4K UHD CineBeam Laser projector (model HU85L) and the LG 4K UHD CineBeam LED projector (model HU70L) will be available in Europe starting next month. While HU85L projects a 90-inch diagonal image in 2,500 ANSI lumens brightness, the more compact HU70L projector provides a rich picture up to 140 inches diagonally and brightness of an impressive 1500 ANSI lumens.
LG announced its CineBeam 4K (HU80K) laser projector at CES last year. At the upcoming 2019 event, LG’s upgraded HU85L model with Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology will make a debut. Featuring a subtle and compact design, it can match different interior styles and can project 4K images on any flat surface whether it’s a wall, floor or ceiling.
Due to the integrated UST technology, the LG HU85L CineBeam Laser 4K projector can be placed a little more than two inches from the wall to project a 90-inch diagonal image. And when placed seven inches away, the projector produces a much larger and a bigger 120-inch image.
Delivering 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution, LG’s new CineBeam Laser 4K projector ensures highly bright and clear images, as well as superb black level, enhancing the visual experience.
It can reproduce highly accurate colors thanks to its wide color gamut, which further enhances the practicality of every picture displayed. It features multiple connectivity options, including USB, Ethernet, and HDMI, and can stream movies and shows from different Over-the-Top applications.
Furthermore, the inclusion of LG’s ThinQ AI makes the 4K projector more convenient and smart. Users can control the operations of the projector with voice commands to Google Assistant built-in using included Magic Remote and even control the other compatible smart home devices. The remote also recognizes gestures and features backlit buttons which automatically turn on with motion.
Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division said;
The new CineBeam Laser projector marries spectacular 4K viewing experience with the convenience of AI technology. There is no other product like this on the market, illustrating how LG continues to deliver unique value to consumers.
LG has won CES 2019 Innovation Award for the new HU85L CineBeam Laser 4K projector. If you wish to experience the projector for real, it will be on display during CES 2019.
Update: LG’s CineBeam HU85LA UST laser 4K projector that can display an image up to 120 inches on a wall is now available for purchase for about $6000.
