The company's latest projector model has been unveiled.
LG has announced its newest CineBeam 4K UHD projector, the HU70LA. The device is set to launch in October for an MSRP of $1,799.
"There's a growing demand for more versatile and larger-screen viewing experiences in the home," said Tim Alessi, head of home entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "Our new CineBeam 4K projectors combine innovative compact designs with stunning 4K images for a breathtaking home cinema experience."
The HU70LA features support for 4K UHD projection (via XPR Expanded Pixel Resolution video processing) at up to 140-inches. In addition, the device offers up to 1500 ANSI lumens of brightness, along with support for HDR10 playback and about 92% coverage of the DCI-P3 wide color space. Under the hood, the projector uses a four-channel LED lighting source with wheel-less technology, allowing the unit to create vivid colors without rainbow effect, clouding, or color distortion.
When it comes to smart connectivity, LG's ThinQ AI and webOS 4.5 platforms are integrated as well, providing access to streaming apps like Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and more. Likewise, Google Assistant voice control capabilities are also implemented. Finally, the HU70LA includes support for IP control through Control 4, Savant, and Crestron systems.
Beyond the new HU70LA CineBeam Projector, LG also recently released the HU85LA CineBeam AI ThinQ 4K Ultra Short Throw Laser Projector. That model supports up to 2700 lumens of brightness and is capable of displaying a 120-inch screen from just 7.2-inches away from the wall. The HU85LA is now available for $5,999.
