LG unveils 4K projector capable of outputting 150-inch projection

05 January, 2018, 12:18 | Author: Devin Moran

LG touts that the company's engineers have challenged themselves to come up with the 4K projector that is smaller than the others on the market without letting down on the performance.

LG doesn't go into specifics about how compact the HU80KA is, only to say it as portable and about half the size of its competitors.

With a maximum screen size of 150-inches, you're going to be thankful for every single one of 4K's 8 million plus pixels.

So far, LG hasn't revealed further specifications and price of the projector. In addition to being a 4K-capable projector, it also has support for HDR 10. Of course what would a "cinematic experience" be without some great sound.

"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.


There are two 7-watt speakers built in, but you'll probably want to pair a soundbar with this thing at the very least.

LG says that the device's "unique upright design is made possible by its mirrorless I-shaped engine", and that allows it to render proper images no matter where it's placed, whether it's on the floor, hanging from the ceiling, or anywhere in between. However, they are also supposed to provide the best resolution, picture clarity and ability to project large images on to any wall. The Mirror Reflector may also be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away.

The projector will run on webOS 3.5 and have a smart TV interface. So there are plenty of apps and games available, including all of the big names like Netflix, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, and much more.

With the announcement of the LG HU80KA, LG did not mention any pricing or availability for this projector.
