LG Releases Pricing, Availability On 2022 4K CineBeam Laser Projectors
LG Electronics released Monday pricing and availability for a pair of 2022 LG CineBeam 4K DLP laser projectors.
The 2022 LG CineBeam 4K DLP models, which include the HU-710P and HU-715Q will be available at suggested retails of $2,499 for the HU710P and $2,999 for the HU715Q, the company revealed. Both units can be ordered immediately from the LG web site.
LG calls these ultra-short-throw one-chip pixel-shifted 4K DLP laser projectors “the company’s most advanced projectors to date.” Both models are capable of displaying 4K resolution with 3,840 x 2,160 visible on screen at one time.
The LG HU-710P features auto brightness control capable of delivering up to 2,000 peak ANSI lumens via a hybrid laser-LED light technology.
The projector itself offers a compact design and the ability to present brighter images and deeper blacks than last year’s equivalent model. The Hu-710P’s hybrid laser-LED light engine eliminates the need for a color wheel to drive separate red, green and blue primaries, thus avoiding unwanted rainbow effects.
LG said both models are easy to set up and suitable for most indoor viewing areas. They are also easily transported outdoors for viewing under warm-weather skies.
The LG HU-715Q is an ultra short throw model that offers up to 2,500 ANSI lumens of peak brightness from its full laser light engine. It is capable of projecting up to a 100-inch image when placed only just 8.5 inches (21.7 centimeters) from the wall.
Both projectors have a rated 20,000 hour lifespan for their light engines, which LG said is four times longer than conventional projector lamps.
The LG HU-715Q model adds built-in quad woofers and 2.2-channel stereo sound output with supported surround sound when connected to one or two Bluetooth speakers. Both models also offer enhanced Auto Return Channel (eARC) HDMI sound output to support advanced surround sound formats when connected to supporting external audio components.
The LG HU-715Q also features a premium fabric cover from Danish textile company, Kvadrat to help the unit blend in with sophisticated room furnishings and designs.
The unit’s lighting technology presents up to a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, with high peak brightness and the ability to present more visible details from both dark and highly bright scenes, according to the company.
The technology includes keystone correction with 4-, 9- and 15-point warping for what LG said is easy horizontal and vertical alignment without distortion, affording placement flexibility.
Other features available in each model include the following:
- Brightness Optimizer makes adjustments according to ambient light conditions.
- Dynamic Tone Mapping analyzes and fine tunes each frame to support superior HDR performance for stunningly real, incredibly vivid images regardless of the content or light level of the room.
- Filmmaker Mode displays movies the way their directors intended them to be seen, replicating the exact look and feel of a theatrical release by preserving the original aspect ratio, frame rate and colors.
- LG’s webOS smart streaming platform with intuitive controls and navigation for easy access to a wide range of popular streaming services including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube and Apple TV.
