LG HU80KA 4K UHD projector to debut at CES 2018

With a maximum screen size of 150-inches, you're going to be thankful for every single one of 4K's 8 million plus pixels. As far as display size goes, it can produce up to a 150-inch image at 2,500 lumens; making this LG's brightest projector ever. Apparently LG's engineers have been able to downsize the HU80KA without sacrificing image quality.

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.

With the LG HU80KA, you will get a cinematic experience, from the 4K picture quality, and the projector still being portable.

However, the cold relationship between South Korea and the North showed signs of thawing in the beginning of 2018. Earlier in the month North Korea had threatened the U.S. with "nuclear justice" and "thermonuclear war".

Apart from the 4K resolution, the HU80KA also supports HDR video with HDR10, which is a new high dynamic range format. Of course what would a "cinematic experience" be without some great sound. In terms of audio performance, the LG HU80KA projector features two 7W speakers. The projector has a portable form factor with the mirrorless I-shaped engine that lets it do the task it is meant to even if you place it on the floor or hang it from the ceiling. Just in case that's not enough for the users, they can also connect their own own speakers or a soundbar through the optical output, HDMI or via Bluetooth. Also there is the Auto Cord feature, allowing the cable to quickly wind up so that it makes moving the projector even easier. When it comes to the content, customers won't have any problems in finding anything to watch.

With LG's webOS 3.5 Smart TV interface onboard, owners will have access to online streaming services along with wireless support for a keyboard and mouse, while other content can be loaded up through USB, Ethernet and HDMI ports. Sadly, the details about the projector do not mention Dolby Vision.

No news on availability or pricing yet for the projector, but we hope to see it in Malaysia soon.
