CES 2018: LG to Debut and Showcase 4K UHD Projector

05 January 2018

It's a 4K UHD projector with the name HU80KA.

LG has just made another announcement for a product that will be debuting at CES next week in Las Vegas.

LG has announced that it will be showing off a new compact and very easy to set up projector at CES 2018 called the HU80K series. 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. LG HU80KA is roughly half the size of competing 4K projectors. According to LG, the new UHD projector, called the HU80KA is approximately half the size of a now available 4K projector. So users are able to move it to another room if they wish to do so.

The latest projector can create a 150-inch screen at 2,500 lumens, making it company's brightest projector.

LG is also claiming that the projector can be ceiling mounted, though we're struggling to work out exactly how you could do so while accommodating its height.

LG says that its the design and build "gives the projector the capability to show flawless images whether it is placed on the ground, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling". In terms of audio performance, the LG HU80KA projector features two 7W speakers. If that's not enough, you can also connect your own speakers or a soundbar via the optical output, HDMI or via Bluetooth (though a wired connection would provide a better experience). The Mirror Reflector may also be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away.

In case you were wondering, the HU80KA runs webOS similar to the current lineup of LG's TVs. LG did mention that it will be on display at its booth during CES next week, so expect more details on this projector in the next few days.
