LG launches new portable projectors

LG is rolling out two new portable projectors this month as part of its Minibeam lineup.

In-kyu Lee, LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company TV & monitor division senior vice president and head:

“As the world’s top manufacturer of LED projectors, we will continue to deliver innovative ideas for those who enjoy home entertainment but aren’t looking to convert their entire living room into a screening room.”

The Minibeam Pro PF1500 is “the perfect portable home theater solution” while the smaller MiniBeam TV PW800 is an on-the-go TV solution.

Both projectors can fit in a backpack or tote and takes seconds to set up. Their wireless connectively allows content mirroring to a smartphone, tablet PC or laptop. The lifespan of the LED illumination system got pegged at 30,000 hours, meaning that viewers could in theory enjoy their Minibeam projectors eight hours a day for “over ten years” without having to replace three light units.

LG’s Minibeam Pro with 1920×1080 (1080p) resolution weighs 3.3 pounds and outputs 1400 ANSI lumens at an image size of 120 diagonal images (3.69m wall-to-lens distance). With its four corner keystone buttons, viewers can cut distortion even when the projector isn’t perfectly aligned with the screen. The PF1500 also has an optical zoom to adjust the size of the image without sacrificing sharpness. The Minibeam Pro can also connect via Bluetooth to soundbars, portable speakers and wireless earphones.

The LG Minibeam TV features a TV tuner to allow customers to watch their favorite TV shows with a 100-inch image (3.25m wall-to-lens distance).

Both models will be available starting this month in the United States and Korea before coming to other worldwide markets in the “weeks to come.” Here are the rest of the spec sheets:
