Serious home cineastes will likely wish to take note of LG’s newest screens. The company’s newest CineBeam projectors can cast a 4K UHD image at between 120 and 300 inches. They both feature a contrast level of 2,000,000 to 1, LG’s Dynamic Tone Mapping, HLG, HDR10, and HGiG format support, and a movie-theater-mimicking feature that preserves a film’s original aspect ratio, colors, and frame rate.
The first of the two new projectors, the HU715Q, is an ultra-short-throw laser-only unit that can, with just 8.5 inches of clearance from the screen or wall, send up a maximum throw 120-inch image. It features sound support from a 20-watt, two-woofer, two-tweeter Atmos-ready sound system. The projector’s laser delivers 2,500 ANSI lumens, and it can be focused by remote. Its color field is an impressive 85% of DCI-P3. And, when not in use, it presents a slyly unassuming Kvadrat fabric face to the room.
The second projector, the HU710P is a laser/LED hybrid unit that can send an image 300 inches, but needs a bit more space to do it. Its color field is even more impressive; 94% of DCI-P3, with 2,000 ANSI lumens. Sound comes from a 5-watt system.
