NEW YORK – LG Electronics showcased its standout laserbased ultra-short-throw FullHD video projector, revealing its $9,000 suggested retail price tag and April ship date. It needs only 22 inches of separation from the screen to project up to a 100- inch image.
The LG Laser TV, which ships in the U.S. in April, needs only 22 inches of separation from the screen to project up to a 100-inch image.
The projector also includes LG’s smart-TV platform for access to a wide library of content choices.
First previewed at the 2013 International CES, the LG Laser TV produces a 150-nit brightness level and renders vivid and crisp images.
Its unusual laser lighting source has a lifespan up to 25,000 hours without light-source replacement (five times that of mercury-based lamps).
The projector can be ceiling mounted or even positioned near the floor.
It has built-in Wi-Fi and comes with a Magic Remote with three modes of control — gesture, pointing and wheel.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
