LG Announces the HU80KA 4K UHD Projector - CES 2018

05 January, 2018, 13:39 | Author: Rosa Wright

LG 4K projector creates a 150-inch screen on the wall. For reference, some of the "affordable" 4K projectors available today come in slightly under $2,000. We'll have to check it out in person to know whether this massive peak light output is matched by decent black level performance to complete the HDR experience. LG hasn't mentioned a price or release date at this stage but judging from Sony's 4K short-throw USTP projector bar, which took a while to be released and cost around £32,000, we're not expecting this LG version to be one for everybody.

The HU80KA projector also sports a convenient tower shape which LG said can be placed just about anywhere to project content on to a suitable surface. Of course what would a "cinematic experience" be without some great sound. For audio, there is a pack of two 7W speakers that can give a user loud and clear sounds.

As a effect , the sector observed a modest increase in pre-production inventories for the first-time since June. In fact, job creation accelerated to the strongest since August 2012, the survey said.

The projector's portable size and unique upright design is made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine, which allows the projector to show flawless images whether it is placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. However, they are also supposed to provide the best resolution, picture clarity and ability to project large images on to any wall. Whether that be on the floor or mounted from the ceiling. As far as content goes, customers won't have any issues finding anything to watch. In fact, LG claims the ease with which the HU80KA projector can be used and installed happens to be the biggest USP of the device.

LG HU80KA projector includes a webOS 3.5 smart TV interface to access online 4K streaming services. LG has also included other connectivity options like USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports. Which means it won't be coming out anytime soon. Considering the LG Full HD projectors top out at 2,000 lumens that's an impressive jump up for this beast of a unit.
