Updated | LG CineBeam HU915QE ultra-short-throw 4K projector unveiled
LG has unveiled the CineBeam HU915QE, an ultra-short throw 4K laser projector. The gadget has a 0.19 throw ratio; for example, the device can produce a 90-in (~229 cm) image from a ~2.2-in (5.6 cm) throw distance or a 120-in (305 cm) picture when the gadget is placed at ~7.2-in (18.3 cm) from the wall.
The gadget has a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio and 3,700 ANSI lumens for a sharp and bright image. HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping alters the brightness in each frame, and Brightness Optimizer II adjusts the projector's settings based on the environment.
Three-channel laser technology allows each primary (RGB) color to have its own light source, creating a more striking image than a device with a single light source, even with sunlight. LG's webOS enables you to stream services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube on the HU915QE.
Plus, you can connect to the projector via Apple AirPlay 2 and Bluetooth. Alternatively, you can connect a gadget to the device via the HDMI eARC ports. The HU915QE has a built-in 2.2 Channel 40 W speaker system, and you can connect up to two LG Bluetooth speakers for a surround sound experience.
The CineBeam HU915QE will be available in the first half of 2022, initially in North America, Europe and the Middle East. LG has not officially announced a price, but it is expected that you will be able to pre-order the device for around US$5,996.99.
The CineBeam HU915QE will go on sale in the US from mid-June at ProjectorScreen.com for US$5,996.
