Large format digital displays with their high image quality have made business presentations look their best. However, when it comes to projectors for business, today’s projector technology is outstanding. Images are huge – larger than typical meeting room displays. Picture quality is amazing, and many deliver stunning images with no need to darken the room.
One such projector is LG’s newest model for business: the LG CineBeam® 4K Ultra-Short-Throw Laser Projector HU85LS.
Ultra-short-throw (UST) technology means that the projector is placed very close to the projection wall (see the note about screens below). When placed on a stand or credenza below the picture area, the LG CineBeam HU85LS can produce a 90-inch image at just two inches from the wall, and a 120-inch image from just 7.2 inches away. The ability to create such a large projection display in nearly any room arrangement makes the HU85LS an ideal video solution for retail, hospitality, small boardrooms and classroom environments, for a much lower cost than a commercial display with equal screen size, and very easy to install.
A Stunning Visual Experience
There’s no need for a dedicated light-controlled room or blackout curtains. The CineBeam HU85LS projector’s 2,700 ANSI lumens produce clear images in an indoor environment under ambient lighting conditions. With 8.3 million pixels (3840 x 2160), and leveraging XPR* technology, it delivers precision and detail at four times the resolution of Full HD. And unlike projectors that use color wheels to make three colors with one light source, the HU85LS adopts 3-channel laser technology to create RGB color via different light sources. Because of this, the HU85LS has no color wheel, so it significantly reduces “rainbow” artifacts that can be experienced with projectors using color wheels. What’s more, the 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio displays rich levels of black and smooth gradients necessary for an engaging cinematic 4K UHD experience.
Why Laser Projection
Because it does not use a bulb, laser projection technology helps businesses manage long-term costs by eliminating bulb outages that interrupt operations and require expensive replacements.
Easy Set-up and Control
Once positioned, the HU85LS’s image warping function allows you to tweak the geometry, if need be, to set up a precisely aligned 16:9 picture by fine-tuning 12 adjustment areas on the screen. For operation, the LG CineBeam offers voice control through the included LG Magic Remote with integrated microphone. Wireless connection is easy with virtually any iOS, Android™ or Windows® device, and standard inputs include USB-A, USB-C and HDMI. The projector offers wireless screen mirroring, webOS 4.5 for native web browsing, two integrated five-watt speakers and a Bluetooth-out port to boost wireless audio through a separate stereo system.
A Note About Screens
The HU85LS can project a clear, bright image onto a white wall, but that isn’t the ideal solution for its stellar 4K image due to wall irregularities and texture. Today’s advanced screen materials enable screens designed specifically for UST projectors. There are different types of UST-specific screens so be sure to consult a projector specialist to ensure you get the right screen to make the most of the superb LG CineBeam picture quality, and make your business presentations shine larger than life.
