LG Reveals Its First-ever 4K HDR, Compact and Affordable Home Cinema Projector

By Yossy Mendelovich


At CES 2018, LG wants to hit the jackpot. Armed with its new invention to enhance the home cinema experience, LG has just announced the HU80KA projector, its first 4K UHD model designed to deliver ultra-sharp video in a compact, beautiful design.

As stated by Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA: “LG’s first-ever 4K UHD projector represents the pinnacle of innovation in the portable entertainment market… Offering superb brightness coupled with a design that offers true versatility, the new HU80KA will lead the way in changing how consumers enjoy 4K content in their home and on the go.”

150-inch screen, 2,500 lumens and HDR

The HU80KA projector has the potential to deliver a 150-inch screen projection with 2,500 lumens, making it LG’s brightest projector. Furthermore, it supports HDR content (HDR 10).

Regarding sound, external speakers can be connected via optical output, HDMI or wirelessly through Bluetooth for enhanced audio performance.

The portable size as a main advantage

4K projectors are known for their cumbersome structure, making them far from ideal in home cinema-style spaces. It seems that LG’s main innovation has been reducing the size without impairing the quality of the projector. It has a unique upright design that, according to LG, was made possible by a mirrorless I-shaped engine that allows you to project images from various locations (floor, wall mounted or ceiling). That is a big plus in portability when dealing with 4K projectors.

Smart TV interface

The HU80KA runs webOS just like LG’s TV lineup, so users can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content.

LG’s 34-inch 5K UltraWide Nano IPS HDR600 monitor is a 4K video editor’s dream

LG has just released a couple of impressive new monitors, both of which take advantage of LG’s so-called Nano IPS technology and boast VESA’s DisplayHDR-600 badge, meaning they support HDR10 processing and max out at 600 nits brightness. That is a seriously impressive feat for a liquid crystal panel.

Unfortunately, LG has stayed pretty tight-lipped about these monitors, which will be debuted officially at CES in January, but here’s what we do know about them.

34-inch 5K UltraWide Nano IPS HDR600 Monitor (34WK95U)

The 34-inch 5K UltraWide is the real eye catcher, a monitor that takes aim at video editors who want to edit 4K footage at native resolution and still have room for editing panels on either side of the screen. Boasting a 21:9 aspect ratio and resolution of 5120 x 2160, the monitor could ostensibly replace a 2-screen setup with a single panel.

Combine that resolution with the fact that VESA have given this monitor its DisplayHDR-600 designation, and you’ve got a truly HDR-capable IPS monitor, something LG only managed to achieve thanks to its Nano IPS technology and possibly some other trickery (more on that later…).

As for color reproduction, Nano IPS technology manages to squeeze 98% of the cinema-grade DCI-P3 color space into the 4K monitor below. It stands to reason, then, that this same technology would bring similar results to the 5K UltraWide, but we’ll have to wait for LG to confirm this. The HDR-600 badge means the monitor has to at least hit 90% DCI-P3, but it’s likely the 5K UltraWide hits a higher percentage than that.

Finally, the monitor also features a Thunderbolt 3 port that, according to LG, “enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable.”

    From LG’s press office: http://www.lgnewsroom.com comes news of a new wide 5K monitor that looks to be a perfect match for that new MacBook Pro and FCPX 10.4. Unfortunately, no news on prices yet but we might have a clue after CES next week. Think I might have to have a chat with the FPO!

    Expected to be another hot item at this year’s CES, LG’s 34-inch UltraWide monitor (model 34WK95U) delivers a broad range of accurate colors and viewing angles at a surreal 5K resolution (5120 x 2160 pixels). LG’s very first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor is loaded to the maximum with a hefty amount of screen real estate and eye-popping colors. This ultimate 5K viewing experience is geared towards users who multitask extensively, such as video editors, photographers and software and app developers.

    Model 34WK95U supports Nano IPS technology, fantastic color reproduction capabilities and HDR600. In addition, model 34WK95U features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable. The Thunderbolt™ 3 interface is ideal for power laptop users who desire fast video, audio and data transfers without the need for a separate AC adapter. With its elegant, stunning profile, this LG monitor turns heads even when powered off, with its 4-Side Edge Borderless Design and gorgeous slim Edge-ArcLine Stand addition to its refined image.
