Texas Instruments has released a new HD chipset according to reports from CES 2011
LG: "It is exciting to work together with DLP and their new HD chipset," said YE Kim, Projector Business Team Leader, LG Electronics. "With our new HW300T multimedia pocket projector with built-in TV tuner, we expect to maintain our leadership position through improvements in resolution and brightness, and a form factor that will best serve both the portable business and consumer entertainment environments."
In accordance with this new HD chipset LG is releasing the HW300T:
LG’s new portable projector, the HW300T, is a veritable treasure trove of multimedia functionality. This LED-powered light-thrower comes with DLNA, ATSC and Wi-Fi.
DLNA means it can share content over your home network. So videos and photos on your PC can be wirelessly beamed to the HW300T, then projected onto your wall.
The ATSC television tuner is essentially a terrestrial digital HDTV tuner, built directly into the projector. But don’t get too excited just yet: ATSC is only currently available in Central America, North America and LG’s native South Korea.
Also on board is a broadband function allowing access to web-connected services including Twitter, Facebook and Accuweather.
On the spec front, the LG HW300T has a 1280 x 800 resolution, 250 ANSI lumens brightness, 2,000:1 contrast ratio and HDMI socket.*Info and picture courtesy of Techradar.com and Texas Instruments
