LG’s HU810P is a new $ 2,999 4K laser projector that supports Apple’s AirPlay 2 standard and runs webOS 5.0. It will be available worldwide on January 18. The projector was originally announced in August, AVSForum previously reported.
According to LG, the HU810P is capable of generating a screen as large as 300 inches corner to corner, and it offers 2700 ANSI brightness. It supports the HDR10 and HLG HDR standards, and it can adjust the image depending on the content you are watching or the room you are watching. For example, it has Bright Room and Dark Room mode that can detect the amount of ambient light in a room and adjust the picture accordingly, and it is also able to adjust the frame rate to 24Hz for movies. The laser light source is rated for 20,000 hours of use.
WebOS 5.0 means that the projector supports a number of streaming services, including Disney Plus, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, YouTube and Hulu, and there is also Miracast support for streaming from compatible devices. Otherwise, there are three HDMI ports in total, one of which is HDMI 2.1, according to AVSForum. The projector supports higher quality eARC audio, can stream audio using Bluetooth, and has built-in Google Assistant and Amazon’s Alexa Voice Assistant.
LG released its first 4K projector in 2018, and it also released a short-throw model that works even if you place it just inches from a projection surface.
