LG Business Solutions USA has introduced a pair of new 4K laser projectors designed for the needs of commercial spaces.
The LG ProBeam is a small 5,000-lumen projector that’s ideal for corporate, hospital, and education environments, while the ultra-short-throw LG CineBeam can project a 120-inch image when positioned just 7.2 inches from the wall, making it ideal for retail, hospitality, small boardrooms, and classroom environments.
The ProBeam (BU50NST) is a 4K UHD 5,000-lumen projector, bright enough to be used even in a brightly-lit room. Able to be mounted on a ceiling or table-top, it is perfect for use in boardrooms, hospitals, classrooms, and virtual or digital entertainment businesses.
With the 1.6x zoom feature, the ProBeam projector can immediately project a 60% larger image without moving or re-adjusting, easily turning a 100-inch projection into a 160-inch projection in seconds. Thanks to detailed keystone adjustment and extreme brightness capability, it can project a minimum screen size of 40 inches and a maximum size of 300 inches (25 feet). Wireless connection is possible with any Android device, and standard ports include USB and HDMI.
The LG CineBeam (HU85LS) is a 4K ultra-short-throw laser projector that can produce a 90-inch image when placed just two inches from the projection wall, and a 120-inch image when just 7.2 inches away. This ability to create a large projection display in nearly any room arrangement makes it a fitting video solution for classrooms, hotel lobbies, and hospitality environments.
Unlike conventional projectors that make three colours with one light source, the HU85LS adopts three-channel laser technology to create RGB colour via different light sources. Because of this, the HU85LS has no colour wheel, so it significantly reduces “rainbow” effects that can be experienced by conventional projectors, says LG. It offers 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio that displays deep blacks and smooth gradients.
With a minimum picture size of 60 inches and a maximum of 120 inches, the LG CineBeam also offers voice control through the included Magic Remote with an integrated microphone. Wireless connection is easy with any iOS, Android, or Windows device, and standard inputs include USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI.
Both the LG ProBeam and LG CineBeam offer wireless screen mirroring, webOS 4.5 for native web browsing, two integrated five-watt speakers, and a Bluetooth-out port to boost wireless audio through a separate stereo system. The 12-point keystone adjustment available on both models enables a 16:9 picture, regardless of placement angle or uneven surfaces.
The use of laser projection also helps users manage long-term costs by minimizing bulb outages that interrupt operations and require expensive replacements, says LG Both projectors are rated for 20,000 hours of lamp life.
The LG ProBeam and LG CineBeam 4K projectors are available now with a three-year warranty. A 5,000-lumen WUXGA model is planned for later in the year.
