The new short-throw projector will hit stores in October.
LG has announced the latest addition to its Minibeam projector lineup. The upcoming PF1000U is a compact ultra short-throw model.
"LG's new Minibeam UST projector delivers a 100-inch Full HD picture in a package that is easy to transport from room to room," said Lee In-kyu, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at LG’s Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "LG Minibeam UST makes it possible for every home and every room to replicate a real theater-like experience."
The 1080p DLP projector features LG's Triple XD Engine and uses a self-emitting RGB LED illumination system for a lifespan of up to 30,000 hours. Likewise, the device has a contrast ratio of 150,000:1 and is rated for up to 1,000 lumens of brightness. Thanks to the model's ultra short-throw technology, the PF1000U is capable of projecting a 60-inch image from just 4.3-inches away from a surface or up to a 100-inch image from just 15-inches away. Finally, the projector also includes HDMI connectivity, an integrated TV tuner, WiDi support, USB, Smart TV features, and Bluetooth audio out for pairing with wireless speakers.
LG's PF1000U Minibeam Ultra Short-Throw Projector is expected to start shipping in October for $1,400.
