LG Unveil Second Generation CineBeam Projector

By Paul Joseph

High-end projector manufacturers LG have created the second generation version of its acclaimed CineBeam 4K short-throw projector.

Set to be unveiled at the 2019 edition of CES in Las Vegas this January, the laser projector’s latest iteration has been augmented with a more practical design that resembled a smart speaker which can be placed directly under the wall on a cabinet.

The project’s stand-out feature is its ability to project a 90-inch display with a 4K resolution with just two inches of clearance from the wall.

Similarly impressive is that the display size increases to 120-inches if the projector is placed at a seven-inch clearance from the wall.

Most of its precise specifications are yet to be revealed, but LG has hinted that the projector will offer up to 2,500 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 4K UHD resolution.

For connectivity, it will feature USB, Ethernet, and HDMI ports will support the LG’s ThinQ AI for voice commands like the brand’s other recent smart TVs.

The price or release date is yet to be announced and is expected to be made public at CES 2019 which runs from 8-12 January.
