With 4K UHD resolution for media consumption quickly becoming the norm, more companies are offering more affordable UHD 4K projectors for those with home theatre setups. Unfortunately, most of these aren’t very portable and most users end up mounting these to the ceiling. LG is hoping to change that by debuting their portable 4K UHD projector at CES this week.
“At this year’s CES event, we are excited to bring value to consumers with our first 4K UHD projector, which delivers the highest resolution we’ve ever offered in a compact size,” said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division. “LG’s 4K UHD projector will lead the way in changing how consumers view 4K content in any room in the home, wherever there’s an audience.”
Instead of the standard rectangular box shape, the LG HU80K series UHD 4K projector is taller than it is wider. It can create a 150-inch image with its bright 2,500 lumen projection lens. In addition, the new 4K projector from LG also supports HDR10 content for even more vibrant images. LG is using a mirrorless I-shaped engine in their new projector, which allows the HU80K series to be mounted on the wall, placed on the floor, or hung from the ceiling.
As far as portability goes, the projector also has a convenient carrying handle and an “Auto Cord” feature, which we can assume means internal cord storage of some type. It also features two 7W speakers for cinematic audio on the go. The LG 4K UHD projector runs webOS 3.5 and includes USB, Ethernet, and HDMI ports as well as wireless keyboard and mouse support.
Pricing has yet to be announced, but we’re hoping to see that information come out at CES 2018 next week.Source: LG Newsroom
