Xiaomi MIJIA Laser Projector 4K version with 4K resolution launched.
 
Xiaomi first launched the Mi Laser Projector in June 2017 and it was well received in the market such that the company raked in sales of 10 million yuan just 2 hours after it went on its first sale. The device came with a 9999 yuan price tag and despite the hype, was only able to provide an FHD resolution. The company has now launched the MIJIA Laser Projector 4K version with the same design, same price tag but a higher 4K resolution.

In terms of design, the MIJIA Laser Projector 4K version bears a similar design to the Mijia Laser Projector that was launched last year but that model comes with a white colour scheme while the new MIJIA Laser Projector is dark gray. The rest of the specifications are mostly similar. The Mijia Laser Projector comes with a 0.233:1 large depth of field and has an ultra-short focal lens design. The projector screen can be placed in the TV cabinet with the size adjusted to fit in. The wall can also be used as the screen and so, it does not occupy too much indoor space. The design also eliminates the cumbersome problem of wires scattered everywhere. The Laser projector itself only needs to be placed 49cm away from the wall in order to deliver 150-inch screen projection. For a 120-inch screen, the distance reduces to 34cm.

Xiaomi claims the laser light inside the projector has a shelve life of 25,0000 hours. That translates to up to 17 years usage if the projector is used for 4hours daily, meaning the laser is ultra-durable and long-lasting. Picture quality is assured as a result of the use of advanced laser fluorescence display technology (ALPD 3.0). The projector provides a red light ratio of 16% to 18%, wide color gamut, color quasi, with contrast comparable to the laser studio 3000: 1 screen contrast. The light source brightness can reach up to 1500 lumens which are of theatre screen level. The projector also diffuses its direct light source, allowing for more eye protection.

In addition, the Mijia Laser 150″ projector is capable of providing theatre-level audio-visuals right in the comfort of the sitting room. It also comes built-in with all the content available on the MIUI TV. The device equally has its own remote control which supports the Xiaomi universal remote control app. That means the Xiaomi universal smart remote can be used to operate the sophisticated device.

The MIJIA projector will go on its first sale on January 18 for 9999 yuan but presale will open on January 15. After the first sale, the price will then berth at 14,999 yuan ($2,220) which is the official retail price.

So my Lune 4k order with several Chinese retailers and agents failed at the payment step. I figured it was the projector gods telling me no go on that model and to settle with the unopened PX800HD sitting in my living room or wait until something else came along. I guess this is it. Are pre orders on the Xiaomi site? Do they ship to the US?

ethan3686 01-14-2019 08:16 PM

No information yet. Its supposed to be on the site by 14th January. But its 15 jan right now. Maybe its supposed to be china only rihht now. Think this is the Chinese version anyway. Me too looking to pre-order.

ethan3686 01-14-2019 09:21 PM

The projector has 3x 2.1 hdmi ports..Which is unheard of in this price range. Also its not true 4k obviously. Its 3840x2160 with ALPD 3.0.

Nothing on 3D yet. But considering its a DLP chip 3D should be compatible.

qoopy 01-14-2019 09:54 PM

Well done Ethan.
5000 lumens (or is it 1500?) at this price, my resistance is crumbling....:o

Yes, good excuse to splurge on the new 48G cables.:D

blee0120 01-14-2019 10:56 PM

Was about to pre order but cant get the site to translate to English. Hopefully something works by the 18th

aerodynamics 01-14-2019 11:09 PM

Google translate works for me but it doesn't appear that they ship to the US.

silver-eye 01-15-2019 02:00 AM

From what I see, they only ship to China.

A pitty, was looking for delivery in Europe.

That is ansi lumens. That is a good enough brightness with some ambient light. Ansi is always lower.

That sucks. Was hoping to grab one. Guess I'll be paying more for one.

So this is lower that Lune4K's 2200 ansi lumens?

wheelee 01-15-2019 08:07 AM

does the Lune & Xiaomi use the same DMD? do those DMD's have a maximum brightness carrying capacity, just like speakers, before they saturate or have overblown colors?

Same DMD hardware and keep in mind that the DMD is just a reflective device and 'should' be able to reflect back just as much light as it is given. There are other DLP (different hardware) that are putting out 5000-7000 (commercial) lumens.

Shame on the lumen output though...could have been something nice and yes, HDMI 2.1 is FAN--TASTIC AT THIS PRICE POINT! If they do the deal with Wal-Mart state side, I may look into it.

Edit: Maybe they are going away from the overly optimistic 'higher' lumens claims of their previous PJs which had no where near what they advertised? I think a lot of the tests on the PJs claiming 5000 lumens tested it at around 1500-1700 lumens anyway so they are being more realistic. 🤔

imhotep6 01-15-2019 01:54 PM

Oh wow! Can’t wait until this is available.

blee0120 01-15-2019 06:47 PM

I'm picking this up as soon as its available in the US

qoopy 01-15-2019 09:32 PM

Xiami could be using the 1500 lumen rated DLP470TP pico version that's typically paired up with LED source, while Lune4K is using the larger DLP470TE standard version capable of higher power.
:(:(:(

:(:(:(

so DMD's also have a maximum limit in brightness although they are a reflective device. They too will saturate when used with higher lumen device - TP vs TE


OK just found this , but isn't the Lune 4K using the 0.66 dmd type?

Quote:

The DLP470TP is the most compact 4K UHD solution from DLP Products, and is optimized for size and power. Measuring 17 mm by 24.5 mm and supporting brightness levels up to 1,500 lumens, the DLP470TP can deliver 4K UHD quality to equipment such as mobile smart TVs and pico projectors.
The DLP470TE is optimized for projectors needing over 1,500 lumens. This chipset is in a larger package, 22 mm by 32 mm, which enables it to withstand the heat generated by brightness levels up to 4,000 lumens.

qoopy 01-16-2019 02:47 AM

If the use of DLP470TP is confirmed, it would suggest perhaps Xiaomi is targeting the low end "mobile" segment of the market. A RGBW colour wheel could also be used to boost brightness.

It is also possible same chipset be used in the other budget 2000 lumens model, but operating beyond it's max power limit. Would be sad if this turns out to be true.

While DLP660TE is the obvious chipset of choice when it comes to performance, it is only likely to appear in higher end products such as the tri-laser models currently under development at Changhong and Hisense.

Time to put on hold the pre-order pending clarification on the matter?:(

Dat Nguyen 01-17-2019 06:05 PM

Is this a true 4K or 1080P support 4K, I saw the spec show 4K, but I can't read what it says in Chinese. Thanks

oni222 01-19-2019 10:02 AM

HDMI 2.1 is what has sold me.
I am ready to sell my Xiaomi UST Laser projector and upgrade to this puppy.

If anybody finds an online retailer that ships to the U.S please tell me. I will be buying one in a heart beat.

Sounds like they removed the keystone option....

Source: "Disadvantage 1: The fan sound is slightly louder. This is a good problem. The sound of the program is enough to suppress the fan sound.

Disadvantage 2: If you are an old user, this generation will remove the function of the keystone control that can be adjusted according to the four corners of the keystone. I am shocked and become super troublesome. I play the same as playing the box game. The cabinet and laser TV were adjusted for at least half an hour. The previous generation sat on the sofa and used the remote control to complete it... This is estimated to be spit by the old user."

-To me it sounds like it is slightly louder (who cares since it sits far away from you and any movie is going to drown it out).
-No Keystone but one of the pictures shows a keystone... I am confused maybe no 8 point adjustments just 4?

ethan3686 01-20-2019 10:35 PM

Well I am not sure but doesn't hdmi 2.1 mean hdcp 2.2 compatibility automatically?

Also manual keystone correction isn't that big of a deal.
Just hope they price it better for international market.

I got one of the very first HDMI 2.0 receivers from Pioneer and it did not have HDCP version needed for 4k. So even though it is very rare it does happen.

Honestly since we are talking about HDMI 2.1 I would bet money that it works with HDCP 2.2.

As for the pricing, I do not see any other UST Laser 4k projectors that can do 150" at this price. So even price gouged by gearlolbest it will sell very well.
Optoma's and LG's UST laser projectors cap out at 120" so for me that is a deal breaker.
