CES 2018: LG to Debut and Showcase 4K UHD Projector

Rated at 2,500 lumens, the HU80KA certainly has a bright future ahead of it, making it LG's brightest projector so far, matching it up against what's now available in the market today.

LG has announced a new compact 4K projector ahead of CES 2018. Among the new projectors is the brand's first 4K UHD projector HU80kA that does not look like its peers. It can also project up to a 150-inch display, at 2,500 lumens. What's more, the LG 4K UHD projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10) for an eye-popping cinematic experience in the home. The projectors feature two 7W speakers clubbed with connectivity options like USB, Ethernet, HDMI, and wireless support for peripherals such as keyboard and mouse.

While we don't have specific dimensions, the HU80KA is roughly half the size of other 4K projectors - LG says it wanted to avoid how "heavy, expensive and difficult-to-install within the home" other products are. Also, it can be connected to external speakers or soundbars through optical output, Bluetooth or HDMI. The projector has a portable form factor with the mirrorless I-shaped engine that lets it do the task it is meant to even if you place it on the floor or hang it from the ceiling. We can expect the HU80KA projector to be showcased at the show floor in Las Vegas in the next week. The price though is expected to be revealed only during the CES. Also there is the Auto Cord feature, allowing the cable to quickly wind up so that it makes moving the projector even easier.

Once in a blue moon happening twice in 2018
A supermoon will be visible in the skies over OR on New Year's Night, providing the illusion of being a larger moon. The Jan. 31 supermoon will also be referred to as a blue moon because it will be the second full moon of the month.

The LG HU80KA, as it's called, is portable enough to be lifted by the handle and placed anywhere.

LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector's webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content. Sadly, the details about the projector do not mention Dolby Vision.
