Disney+ App Comes To LG CineBeam 4K Projectors
Just in time for Season 2 of The Mandalorian, LG said the Disney+ streaming app is now available on select models of its CineBeam 4K DLP projectors.
Owners of LG CineBeam Projector models HU85LA and HU70LA now can subscribe to Disney+ directly through the projector’s webOS 4.5 smart TV platform. These are the first projectors on the market with built-in access to the popular streaming app, LG said.
Since its launch last year, Disney+ has become one of the most popular and fastest-growing premium streaming platforms. The app offers content from multiple Disney owned or affiliated studios including: Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, National Geographic.
The CineBeam projectors will now enable owners to watch programs on very large screen sizes ranging up to 140 inches.
LG said the projectors can now access the Disney+ app icon through the LG Home Launcher, which in addition to the new CineBeam models, is available on many of the company’s LG OLED TVs and LG NanoCell TVs.
The Disney+ app offers access to a large library of some of the most popular and treasured family films and television entertainment as well as exclusive original movies, documentaries and television programs.
The original Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian was one of the most popular new original OTT streaming properties of 2019, and its second season just became available.
Other popular offerings include: Hamilton, High School Musical: The Musical – The Series, The One and Only Ivan, and The Simpsons.
“Enjoying life at home has taken on a much greater role in peoples’ lives these days,” stated Peggy Ang, LG USA’s marketing VP. “The arrival of the Disney+ app on our LG CineBeam 4K projectors provides consumers with a unique opportunity to bring the excitement of movie-going into their own home featuring the phenomenal content of Disney+ on stunning, ultra-large screens. This takes family movie night to whole new level.”
The LG CineBeam HU70LA offers a long-lasting LED light engine, 4K UHD picture and a peak brightness level of 1500 ANSI lumens. The unit features a 4-channel LED lighting system that eliminates the need for a color wheel in the single-chip DLP design, while maintaining a high level of color accuracy, LG said.
The HU85LA CineBeam model uses a laser light engine, and is LG’s first ultra-short throw model, enabling the projector to be positioned just 7.2 inches away from the screen surface for a very bright image even in rooms with some degree of ambient light. The 4K DLP-based model outputs 2,700 ANSI lumens of peak brightness on a screen size of up to 120 inches. The HU85LA also eliminates the need for a color wheel by using a 3-channel laser as the light source.
The projector also support the HDR10 high dynamic range profile delivering a wide contrast ratio with deep black and bright colors. LG employs its TruMotion motion smoothing technology to present smooth, clear moving subjects, like live sporting events.
Both LG CineBeam projectors also can be integrated into a smart home via compatibility with Crestron, Control4, and Savant control systems.
