Nebula announces new Cosmos and Cosmos Max home projectors
Nebula, originally an offshoot of the accessories brand Anker, is perhaps best known for its Capsule line of portable projectors. However, its latest offerings are more directed at the home-theater end of this market. The Cosmos and Cosmos Max are touted to throw clear, colorful images with "3D" sound at up-to-date resolutions.
This new projector series runs Android TV based on version 9.0 (Pie) of this OS. This means they may have compatible apps for any source of content the user might want, as well as Google Assistant and Chromecast support. Alternatively, they have USB ports for playback for this media.
The Cosmos line is also equipped with Dolby Digital Plus (and Sound Dimension, in the Max) technology for stand-alone audio, although they also support connection to existing home stereo set-ups through HDMI or S/PDIF ports, as weil as Bluetooth for wireless systems.
They also have horizontal and vertical keystone correction of 40 degrees either way, meaning they can be mounted off the ground or aimed at an angle, yet still retain the integrity of their images.
The base model is FHD with an internal storage capacity of 8GB, whereas the Max is rated for a 4K resolution and is 16GB. Similarly, the former has a total speaker power of 20 watts (W), whereas the latter has 4 10W speakers.
The Cosmos is also rated for a brightness of 900 ANSI lumens, whereas the Max increases this to 1500. They are priced at US$799 and $1799 respectively, and can be ordered on Nebula.com from now, with availability on Amazon to follow.
