LG’s latest portable CineBeam Projector now available for $600

LG today announced that its CineBeam Smart Portable Projector is now available from the company’s website. The model number is PF510Q, and it runs $600 retail.

This is a Full HD projector that tops out at 1080p resolution, with brightness at just 450 ANSI lumens. The LED light source is rated for up to 30,000 hours, and the projector has a built-in 5-watt mono speaker and supports Bluetooth, so you can send audio to a separate system if you want.

As you’d expect from a portable projector, it’s pretty lightweight at just 2 pounds. It’s meant to be used to project images as small as 30 inches diagonally, all the way up to 120 inches. It’s got automatic adjustments for keystone alignment, too, so you shouldn’t have to spend any time dialing in the picture on your own.

The projector is running LG’s webOS-based operating system, which means it has access to a large number of apps, including all the major streaming services, like YouTube, Apple TV+, Netflix, Disney+ and more. It also has Apple’s AirPlay 2 and HomeKit built in, and it’s simple to share video from Android devices as well.

It’s not meant to be the One Projector to Rule Them All; instead it’s the sort of thing LG imagines you could carry from a kid’s room to a playroom, or maybe even on the road in a business setting, without all that much in the way of setup as you go from place to place.

LG’s new Cinebeam laser projector creates a 90-inch screen from 2 inches away

LG is out to prove that it doesn't need much room to make a big impression. The company is getting ready to show off the second generation of its Cinebeam Laser 4K projector at CES 2019 in Las Vegas next month. According to LG, the device can project a massive 90-inch image onto any flat surface while sitting just two inches away from it.

To pull off this task, LG has taped Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology. UST solves the problem or needing to pull your projector way back or get it at just the right angle to fit the full screen on a wall or screen. It takes up less dedicated space and does away with the shadow-casting problems presented by your standard projector. Give the LG Cinebeam seven inches of space away from a surface and it can create a bright, vibrant, 120-inch image in no time.

Even a mammoth 77-inch OLED is dwarfed by a 150-inch picture, and that’s exactly what the new LG CineBeam HU80KA 4K UHD projector brings to the table. Even better, the CineBeam is available now for a price that is close to what you'd expect to pay for a 75-inch 4K TV — not bad for what promises to be one of the best home theater projectors around.

Not only can the HU80KA deliver a huge picture, but it does so in a compact, portable form that doesn’t require you to find a table or stand for setting it at the exact right height. Not sure you want to spare the space on the floor? That’s not a problem, says LG, as the projector’s mirrorless I-shaped engine allows the projector to display without problems whether it’s mounted on the wall, hung from the ceiling, or placed on the floor.

ProBeam UST and MiniBeam

When most people think of projectors, they likely imagine big, bulky, chunks of hardware that require plenty of space to set up. But LG's newly unveiled pair of projectors set to debut at IFA in Berlin this fall, the ProBeam UST and MiniBeam, are built to make installation simple and portable setups possible.

The first of the two, the ProBeam UST is an ultra short-throw laser projector. Short-throw projectors differ from the kind of projectors you'll find in most home theaters, in that they are placed near the display surface rather than being placed at the back of the room or installed in the ceiling. The ProBeam UST requires only 4.7 inches of space between it and the screen or wall to display up to a 100-inch, full-HD 1080p resolution picture, with a brightness of up to 1,500 lumens and a claimed 150,000:1 contrast ratio.
