And a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1? LG isn’t doing too bad.
With a brightness of 3,700 ANSI lumens and a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, LG has unveiled a new 4K laser projector.
An ultra-short-throw laser projector called the LG HU915QE Ultra-Short Throw Laser Projector was revealed earlier this year by LG.
In fact, the HU915QE is able to produce 90-inch images with just 2 inches of throw distance, making it larger than even the greatest 4K TVs now on the market. If you move it seven inches from the wall, you’ll have a 120-inch-wide screen.
For aesthetic purposes, the new model has a boxy shape with fabric mesh covering the speaker grille. Although the projector’s built-in speakers only have 2.2 channels and 40 watts of power, LG claims that the sound quality may be improved with the addition of wireless Bluetooth speakers.
It has access to the greatest streaming services, such as Netflix, Prime Video, Apple TV, Disney Plus, and more, through LG’s WebOS smart platform. Screen mirroring and AirPlay 2 are also supported by the projector, according to LG.
This isn’t all: LG has included a number of beneficial TV technologies like HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping, which enhances non-HDR content with an HDR look, and LG’s Brightness Optimizer II engine, which automatically adjusts light output according on ambient lighting conditions. For a high-end projector like this, these are great features that should make cinephiles very happy.
It’s going to be how much? It gets a little fuzzy at this point, isn’t it?
This new Cinebeam member will likely cost between $5,000 and $6,000, though LG hasn’t given a specific price yet. As of 2019, the LG HU85LA, a similar-looking laser projector, was selling for $4,999. Newer models may be slightly less expensive, but not by much.
The HU915QE’s price has yet to be determined, but if the $3,000 HU715Q is any indication, it’s not going to be cheap.
If you’re on a budget, consider one of these alternatives. The price of the LG HU85LA has dropped below $3,000. You may see the most recent offers here.
