LG has added to their home laser projector lineup with the announcement of the CineBeam HU810P, a 4K UHD single-chip DLP laser projector. Like the company's HU85LA ultra short throw projector, the HU810P uses multiple lasers for better color, but while the HU85LA has three, the HU810P utilizes a red/blue dual-laser system to achieve 97 percent of the P3 color space while generating 2,700 ANSI lumens of brightness. The light source has a lifespan of up to 20,000 hours in High Brightness or 30,000 hours in Economic mode. The HU810P is able to project a 300-inch diagonal image and includes a 1.6x manual zoom. The lens shift can go up to 55 degrees vertical and 22 degrees horizontal.
To try and ensure the best viewing experience under different room conditions, LG has included Adaptive Picture Pro technology. This includes bright room and dark room iris modes to automatically adjust the picture dependent on the amount of light in your viewing room. Adaptive Contrast optimizes the contrast ratio from frame to frame. Both HDR10 and HLG are supported and use LG's dynamic tone mapping feature as introduced in the HU85LA.
The HU810P comes equipped with an HDMI 2.1 (with eARC) and two HDMI 2.0 ports. A pair of 5-watt utility speakers are on board, but the projector features wireless audio connectivity with Bluetooth and WiSA (Wireless Speakers and Audio), the latter certification allows for up to eight channels of 24-bit, 96kHz audio to be transmitted to WiSA speakers at low latency. LG's newest webOS 5.0 smart TV interface and streaming platform is also on board for access to all major streaming services, and there's also support for AirPlay2 and a wired optical audio connection.
Specifics on pricing and availability were not released, but the HU810P is expected to reach market sometime this fall.
