LG’s UST 4K projector only needs 55 centimeters on the wall | Digital Trends Spanish

The new flagship ultra-short throw (UST) 4K laser projector from LGthe CineBeam HU915QE, sets some impressive new benchmarks, with a claimed 3,700 lumens of brightness and the ability to be placed as close as 55 centimeters away from a wall. At that distance, you can create a 228cm image, but if you move it a little further, to a distance of 180cm, that image size can increase to 304cm. We’re still waiting to hear how much LG wants for the HU915QE, but the company says it will be available to order before the end of June 2022.

UST projectors are the perfect solution for those who crave super-large image sizes for their movies, sports and games, and who don’t want to deal with a projector in the middle of their room or suspended from their ceiling. LG is no stranger to laser-powered UST projectors and has produced several models in recent years. The HU915QE is the second and most advanced LG UST projector to be announced in 2022, following the previously released CineBeam HU715Q which only delivers 2,500 lumens.

Among the HU915QE’s list of notable features is a triple laser system that uses a separate light source for each primary color (RGB), something that helps the projector achieve its high brightness numbers and 2,000 contrast ratio. 000:1. LG claims that the HU915QE will deliver more vivid images during daylight conditions than the HU715Q.

The CineBeam supports 4K HDR and has several built-in technologies to optimize the image you see, including HDR Dynamic Tone Mapping, which evaluates and adjusts the brightness of each video frame, a Brightness Optimizer that calibrates brightness based on ambient lighting conditions in the room and an adaptive contrast system that makes scene-by-scene contrast adjustments.

The HU915QE is equipped with three HDMI inputs and includes support for HDMI eARC, but LG hasn’t mentioned any advanced HDMI 2.1 features that will appeal to gamers, such as Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM ) or 4K games at 120Hz.

The projector is also a smart TV, powered by LG’s webOS software, which has a number of built-in streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, YouTube and Apple TV. It also provides support for screen mirroring, Apple AirPlay 2, and Bluetooth connections.

In terms of audio, the CineBeam sports a built-in 2.2-channel, 40-watt speaker system, which can be further expanded by using two LG Bluetooth speakers, but LG hasn’t listed support for Dolby Atmos, suggesting that you may need a Dolby Atmos-compatible A/V receiver, or a Dolby Atmos-compatible soundbar that has an HDMI input for 4K/HDR pass-through to the projector.
