New LG 4K UHD Projector Launching At CES

With the global 4K projector market expected to grow rapidly, LG is confident that its leadership in the LED projector segment can be repeated in the 4K projector segment as well. The HU80KA is a pretty impressive projector from LG, as the company had looked to solve some of the issues with other high-end projectors, which included difficulty in installing it. The projector has a portable form factor with the mirrorless I-shaped engine that lets it do the task it is meant to even if you place it on the floor or hang it from the ceiling.

LG Electronics Inc. said Friday it will unveil its Ultra HD (UHD) beam projector, which boasts the industry's most advanced screen quality, at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) kicking off in the United States next week. LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality and came up with a premium device that is half the size of competing 4K projectors while still being easier on the wallet. It supports the HDR video (HDR10).

The 4K UHD projector also comes with two powerful 7W speakers that can deliver really good sound output. Fear not as the HU80KA has a plethora of connectivity options ranging from optical, HDMI, and Bluetooth. However, they are also supposed to provide the best resolution, picture clarity and ability to project large images on to any wall. As far as content goes, customers won't have any issues finding anything to watch. Thus, there are a lot of apps and games accessible, as well as all of the big names like YouTube, Netflix, Google Play Movies & TV, and a lot more.
