LG to unveil its Cinebeam 4K at IFA 2019
The company says its Newest Projector Lineup has advanced color technologies
The new CineBeam 4K UHD projector lineup from LG Electronics being unveiled for the first time to Europeans at IFA 2019 was developed to meet the growing demand for versatile, smart home cinema solutions.
Able to produce sharp, large-scale images, LG’s first Ultra Short Throw (UST) 4K UHD CineBeam Laser projector (model HU85L) and the LG 4K UHD CineBeam LED pro-jector (model HU70L) will be available in Europe starting next month and presumably to other regions depending on demand.
With LG’s Wheel-less Laser and LED technology, both 4K UHD projectors deliver ex-cellent viewing experiences with incredible color accuracy. The new tech helps each model to produce clearer, more distinct images than traditional Digital Light Processing (DLP) projectors with color wheels, and practically eliminates distracting visual artifacts such as the rainbow effect, clouding and color distortion.
The HU85L uses a three-channel laser system to generate colors with individual red and blue laser light sources with green created by LG’s exclusive Wheel-less Laser and LED technology and another blue light source.
This unique configuration results in accurate colors, achieving 97 percent of the DCI-P3 color space and up to 12-bit color processing for incredibly detailed and vibrant images of up to 2,700 ANSI lumens. And with UST technology, LG HU85L can be set a mere 5.6 centimeters from the wall to project a 90-inch diagonal image or placed 18 centime-ters away for a massive 120-inch picture.
The more compact HU70L projector provides an impressive home theater experience with a deep and rich picture up to 140 inches diagonal and brightness of an impressive 1500 ANSI lumens that covers 92 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. The projector em-ploys four LEDs to generate red, green and blue, with the addition of the fourth LED boosting image brightness, contrast and generating more vivid colors with more nuanced tonality (compared to conventional LED projectors) by dynamically adjusting green lev-els.
With support for HDR10, LG’s new projectors will enthrall viewers with realistic imag-es featuring deeper blacks and brighter colors. TruMotion technology makes pictures even more lifelike, ensuring all on-screen motion is rendered smoothly and naturally. What’s more, the inclusion of LG’s six-step 4K upscaler allows users to view Full HD content in ultra-sharp 4K. Both CineBeam projectors also deliver a plethora of streaming content options as well as various connectivity options including USB, HDMI, Ethernet and wireless mirroring (Android and iOS).
Featuring LG’s acclaimed webOS 4.5, users can directly access popular streaming apps including Netflix, Amazon, YouTube and more using the company’s Magic Remote with backlit buttons for ease of use even in the darkest rooms.
“Our new 4K projectors versatile enough to perform equally well in the home or office. Featuring new innovations that elevate picture quality and user convenience to a whole new level, LG is redefining the modern projector and continuing to push the boundaries of what’s possible.” Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division.
