The PX1-PRO was designed for home theatre enthusiasts who are seeking a versatile UST entertainment solution that aligns with their home theatre preferences. It includes the same TriChroma laser engine as the award-winning L9G with a Digital Lens Focus feature that allows for ultra-fine focus tuning via menu controls to get images in sizes ranging from 90 to 130-inches. The L5G on the other hand is a great option for those seeking an immersive in-home entertainment option or who may just be making the leap into big-screen entertainment. To remove the guesswork from the UST projector setup, it comes with an ambient light rejecting screen in either 100” or 120” sizes.

The PX1-PRO is the newest 4K ultra-short throw projector with Hisense’s award-winning TriChroma laser engine – making it the perfect option for home theatre enthusiasts looking for an upgrade. With a growing emphasis on versatility and accommodating a range of experiences, Hisense developed a new digital lens focus system for the PX1-PRO to enable a razor-sharp picture from 90 to 130-inches diagonal and the option for consumers to choose their preferred screen for more freedom in customizing their home theatres.
