LG announces a 4K UHD projector that will debut at CES

Have you ever thought that you needed a projector, but the ones available aren't high enough resolution? Today is your lucky day, as LG announced that it will be unveiling its first 4K UHD projector at CES 2018, the HU80KA.

The HU80KA is capable of creating a massive 150-inch screen at 2,500 lumens. The company says that it's its brightest projector to date. It also supports HDR10, meaning that it can dynamically adjust color and contrast according to the video's metadata. It comes with two built-in 7W speakers, although you also have the option of adding a sound bar or external speaker.

"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. "Offering superb brightness coupled with a design that offers true versatility, the new HU80KA will lead the way in changing how consumers enjoy 4K content in their home and on the go."

The projector comes with webOS 3.5, so it's not just a dumb projector with input ports. Naturally, you can use the smart TV platform to stream Netflix, Hulu, and so on, or you can connect an external device via HDMI or USB, and you can get connectivity via Ethernet.

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.

LG will have the HU80KA on display at its booth at CES.
