A new 4K ultra short throw projector will be on display at CES 2019.
LG has announced its latest home theater product, the HU85L CineBeam Laser 4K Projector with Ultra Short Throw support. The compact device enables easy placement options and features LG ThinQ AI tech. Likewise, the projector is already the recipient of a CES 2019 Innovation Award.
"The new CineBeam Laser projector marries spectacular 4K viewing experience with the convenience of AI technology," said Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG's IT business division. "There is no other product like this on the market, illustrating how LG continues to deliver unique value to consumers."
The HU85L offers support for 4K UHD resolution, wide color gamut, and 2,500 ANSI lumens of brightness. And thanks to the unit's Ultra Short Throw tech, the device can project a 90-inch image from just a little more than 2 inches away from a wall or an even larger 120-inch image from 7 inches away. In addition, the projector features a compact design and 12-point keystone adjustment to help remove image distortion.
Meanwhile, LG has also implemented ThinQ AI capabilities, offering support for voice commands via the included Magic Remote to control the projector and find content. Likewise, the remote can detect gestures and activate its backlit buttons automatically when it perceives motion. Finally, the projector includes access to streaming services, along with USB, Ethernet, and HDMI connectivity.
Pricing and availability for the HU85L CineBeam Laser 4K Projector have not been announced yet, but the device will be on hand at LG's booth during CES 2019 from January 8-11 in Las Vegas.
