LG 4K UHD HU80KA Projector With HDR Support Unveiled

LG has unveiled a new model in its projector lineup ahead of CES 2018. The LG 4K UHD projector with model number HU80KA is the first such device by the company in the segment but is unlike most of its competitors. The South Korean company claims that the new projector is almost half the size of its 4K rivals in the market, and is able to project a 150-inch display apart from supporting HDR video. While most 4K projectors currently in the market are heavy and expensive, LG has pitched the 4K UHD projector as an "affordable yet premium device".


Traditionally, projectors that support 4K images tended to be heavy, expensive and cumbersome to install in the home. LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality and came up with a premium device that is half the size of competing 4K projectors while still being easier on the wallet. LG’s 4K UHD projector promises great cinematic experience thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portable size, meaning that the movie environment can be created in any room of the house at any time.


With high-quality video content being available to consumers in more formats than ever before, the benefit of a device with the versatility to display streaming content as easily as a Blu-ray disc has never been more apparent. LG’s 4K UHD projector can create a 150-inch screen at an amazing 2,500 lumens, making this LG’s brightest projector. What’s more, the LG 4K UHD projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10) for an eye-popping cinematic experience in the home.


The projector’s portable size and unique upright design is only made possible by the mirrorless I-shaped engine which allows the projector to show perfect images whether it’s placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. With a convenient carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, owners may never want to mount the LG 4K UHD projector since it looks great in any room for any occasion. What’s more, the Mirror Reflector can be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away. Two powerful yet clear 7W speakers deliver a true cinematic audio experience without the need for external speakers or a soundbar.

“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.”


LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector’s webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content. And standard connectivity options include ports for USB, Ethernet and HDMI, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse.

Also on display will be LG’s latest version of its portable and convenient MiniBeam Projector (model PF50K), featuring webOS 3.5 and Full HD resolution. LG’s entire 2018 projector lineup can be experienced up close in LG’s booth at CES in Las Vegas from January 9-12.

Cheers!!!
