Xiaomi announces the Full Color Laser Cinema projector with RGB LED technology
Xiaomi has launched a new short-throw laser projector, the Full Color Laser Cinema. The projector has an RGB three-color laser light source with liquid crystal-on-silicon (LCoS) technology, giving the device 95% coverage of the BT.2020 color gamut.
One key difference between the Full Color Laser Cinema and other Xiaomi projectors is the lack of 4K capabilities; the gadget only supports Full HD. The projector has SGS low blue light certification meaning the device should protect your eyes. The protection comes from controls placed on the blue light in the range of 415 to 455 nm. Overall, the device has a maximum brightness of 1,400 ANSI lumens and the projected image can be between 60 and 150-in in size.
The Full Color Laser Cinema has a MEMC motion compensation base, an Amlogic T982 4-core CPU and 2 GB DDR4 RAM. The AiPQ algorithm is employed to upscale the quality of the image projected by the gadget. The projector features a four-speaker sound system, including DTS and Dolby. You can find multiple ports on the side of the product, including three HDMI, USB 3.0, SPDIF, audio-out and LAN.
The projector is currently available to pre-order in China for 6,499 yuan (~US$1,020). After this initial period, the price will increase to 6,999 yuan (~US$1,098). The Full Color Laser Cinema is expected to ship in China from April 1st.
It is unknown whether or when Xiaomi will release the projector in other countries. However, fans might be optimistic about a wider launch given the global release of devices like the Xiaomi Laser Cinema 2.
