LG’s new projector streams a 4K screen on to your wall

LG Electronics announced the HU80KA projector, its first 4K UHD1 model designed to deliver ultra-sharp video in a compact design that aims to enhance the home cinema experience. 

This projector earning the coveted CES 2018 Best of Innovation award.

LG Electronics head of product marketing Tim Alessi says, “LG's first-ever 4K UHD projector represents the pinnacle of innovation in the portable entertainment market.

“Offering brightness coupled with a design that offers versatility, the new HU80KA will lead the way in changing how consumers enjoy 4K content in their home and on the go."

Traditionally, 4K projectors have been heavy, expensive and difficult to install within the home. 

Addressing these drawbacks, LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality. 

The result was this device, roughly half the size of other 4K projectors. 

LG's 4K UHD projector promises superb cinematic experiences thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portability, enabling users to create a true movie environment in any room of the house.

LG's 4K UHD projector can create a 150-inch screen at an amazing 2,500 lumen, making it LG's brightest projector.

The projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10) for an eye-popping cinematic experience in the home, and while two 7W speakers deliver high-quality audio. 

External speakers or a sound bar can also be easily connected via optical output, HDMI or wirelessly through Bluetooth for enhanced audio performance.

The projector's portable size and the upright design is made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine, which allows the projector to show images whether it is placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. 

With a convenient carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, users have flexibility during installation.

The Mirror Reflector may also be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away.

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. 

The device comes equipped with standard connectivity options for USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse, offering near endless access to high-quality content.
