LG's First 4K UHD Projector is Compact, Portable and Creates a 150-inch Screen at 2500 Lumens

LG Electronics has announced its first 4K UHD projector (model HU80KA) designed to deliver ultra-sharp video in a compact, beautiful design. The projector has received the coveted CES 2018 Best of Innovation award and is being featured at the tech show next week.

Traditionally, 4K projectors have been heavy, expensive and difficult to install within the home. Addressing these drawbacks, LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality. The result was an affordable yet premium device roughly half the size of competing 4K projectors. LG's 4K UHD projector promises superb cinematic experiences thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portability, enabling users to create a true movie environment in any room of the house.

"LG's first-ever 4K UHD projector represents the pinnacle of innovation in the portable entertainment market," said Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "Offering superb brightness coupled with a design that offers true versatility, the new HU80KA will lead the way in changing how consumers enjoy 4K content in their home and on the go."

LG's 4K UHD projector can create a 150-inch screen at an amazing 2,500 lumens—LG's brightest projector. What's more, the LG 4K UHD projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10) for an eye-popping cinematic experience in the home, and while two 7W speakers deliver high-quality audio. External speakers or a sound bar can also be easily connected via optical output, HDMI or wirelessly through Bluetooth for enhanced audio performance.

The projector's portable size and unique upright design is made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine, which allows the projector to show perfect images whether it is placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. With a convenient carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, users have a flexibility of installation that ensures the LG 4K UHD projector will look great in any room for any occasion. The Mirror Reflector may also be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away.

LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector's webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content. The device comes equipped with standard connectivity options for USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse, offering endless access to high-quality content.

If you're attending CES, you can check out LG's projector lineup at Booth #11100, Central Hall from January 9-12. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates on pricing and availability.

Dope. I have a 1080p Optoma that’s been working great for 6 years and only cost about $1000. About half the lumens as this projector so needs to be dark to use it. Can’t wait till this new tech is more affordable.

Goodbye old video projectors. You still may an outdated option, but now get ready to be sent to your graves. Aside from that, I'd like to see how these would do in classrooms.
