XGIMI has announced two new pending home theater lifestyle projectors, the Horizon and the Horizon Pro. Both have a small, portable form factor—similar to XGIMI's H2 from 2018—and built-in 8-watt stereo speakers tuned by Harman Kardon. The projectors can be easily stored away when not in use or moved and quickly set up in different locations without the need of a separate sound system.
Both projectors in the Horizon series use an LED light engine that has a life of 30,000 hours in its full power setting and a published brightness spec of 2,200 ANSI lumens. The Horizon has 1080p (1920x1080) resolution, while the Horizon Pro is a 4K (3840x2160) version. The Horizon Pro also supports HDR10 and 3D (no specific details about HDR and 3D support on the Horizon are currently available).
To assist with setup, the Horizon series includes automatic keystone correction and auto focus that adjust the picture to the screen. With a throw ratio of 1.2:1, the fixed zoom projectors can accommodate an image from 40.38 inches up to 300 inches. They run on the Android TV 10 OS, which provides access to the Google Play store and thousands of apps for streaming content. Google Assistant allows for voice-activated search and additional streaming is supported via Miracast devices.
