LG Electronics announces to center-stage its three newest projectors in the Minibeam series (models PH550, PW1000, PW1500) at CES 2016. The new range comes with both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity for unparalleled freedom and viewing convenience. LG’s new 2016 Minibeam models have been slimmed down even further for easier portability and convenience.
The comapct PH550 integrates triple wire-free connectivity claimed to be first of it kind. This enables users to send content to the projector from a smartphone or tablet using the Wi-Fi mirroring-enabled Screen Share, connect to speakers wirelessly via Bluetooth and unplug from the wall for 2.5 hours of viewing pleasure using the rechargeable internal battery. Half the size of a standard A4 sheet of paper, the PH550 at 550 lumens is the brightest among LG’s battery-powered projectors.
Recognized at CES 2016 Innovation Award, the versatile PF1000U is unique in its ability to project a 100-inch image when placed only 15 inches (38 centimeters) from a wall or screen. Viewers no longer need to worry about clearing out a large area to make room for the projector or worry about walking in front of the projection beam. Despite its small size, the Full HD PF1000U delivers a stunning 1,000 lumen brightness rating, all while consuming just a third of the power of competing units.
For consumers looking for picture clarity, the new PW1500 is able to render images at an astounding 1,500 lumens, the brightest in the entire LG Minibeam series. Perfect for everything from slide show presentations to theater-quality movie viewing, the PW1500 is the ideal projector for viewers who consume a wide range of content. The PW1000 with 1,000 lumens offers all the great features of the Minibeam PW1500 at a more competitive price.
“We are very excited to be introducing our newest Minibeam series to consumers at CES 2016,” said Brian Kwon, President and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company. “With more variety than ever before, LG Minibeam projectors offer enhanced portability with wireless connectivity for an enjoyable viewing experiencing anytime, anywhere.”
LG’s new 2016 Minibeam models will be available in key European markets and the United States in the first quarter of 2016. LG Minibeam will be on display at CES 2016 from January 6-9 in Las Vegas.
