LG Beefs Up Minibeam Series Projectors Ahead Of CES 2016

LG just announced plans to expand its Minibeam series of projectors at CES 2016. These projectors will debut next month at the Consumer Electronics Show and are a series of three new projectors in the Minibeam series. The models, which are the PH550, PW1000, and PW1500, feature Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity and improve on the one-hand grip design of the older Minibeam projectors while also featuring a slimmer profile for increased portability.


According to Brian Kwon, President and CEO of LG's Home Entertainment Company, "With more variety than ever before, LG Minibeam projectors offer enhanced portability with wireless connectivity for an enjoyable viewing experience anytime, anywhere. We look forward to officially unveiling the newest LG Minibeam series at CES 2016."

The compact PH550 eliminates the need for any and all wires thanks to its triple wire-free connectivity. This feature gives you the ability to send content from their smartphone or tablet to the projector via WiFi mirroring-enabled Screen Share. In addition to that, you can also connect speakers wirelessly through Bluetooth and even unplug from the wall for 2.5 hours of viewing using the rechargeable internal battery. All of these features give you a new level of connectivity and freedom and, despite the small size of the PH550, this projector is the brightest among LG's battery-powered projectors at 550 lumens.

If you are looking to get the best picture quality, then the PW1500 is your projector. It has the ability to render images at 1,500 lumens, which makes it the brightest projector in the entire LG Minibeam series. This projector is perfect for things like slide show presentations to theater-quality movies and is ideal for anyone who consumes a plethora of content. The PW1000 offers all the features of the PW1500 though at a lower lumen output and at a more competitive price.


These aren't the only things that LG has up its sleeve. Another key projector is the company's Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector, the PF1000U. This projector was honored with a CES 2016 Innovation Award and is a versatile HD projector with a 1,920 x 1,080 resolution and 1,000-lumen brightness that affords you clear visibility, sharp contrast, and rich blacks even in environments with lots of ambient light.

The PF1000U features Ultra Short Throw Technology (UST) and is able to project a 100" picture from only 15" away from the wall or screen. You no longer have to worry about installation or walking in front of the projector beam, which makes this projector perfect for conference rooms or offices. The PF1000U is also the world's first UST projector to weigh less than 4.85 lbs and, even with its Full HD resolution and 1,000-lumen brightness, it only consumes about a third of the power that competing projectors do. If you're a consumer, this projector gives you the most convenience while also providing you with excellent picture quality that is as good, if not better, than a lot of TVs.

The new, 2016 Minibeam models from LG are planned to be introduced in the United States and key European markets in the first quarter of 2016. The Ultra Short Throw LED Home Theater Projector  is currently available at U.S. retailers and all models will be on display at LG's booth at CES 2016, which will be taking place from January 6th through the 9th in Las Vegas.
