LG is on a roll when it comes to releasing new 4K DLP laser projectors. The company has announced the CineBeam HU810P, which will be exhibited virtually at IFA 2020. This projector is aimed at the home entertainment market and LG states it will include an Iris mode that has presents for Bright Room Mode and Dark Room Mode with automatic room brightness detection. The company says this projector can even hold its own in a dedicated home theater.

The light source is a dual laser design (R/B) with a 20,000 hour rated lifespan. This LG is spec'd at 2700 ANSI lumens and Dynamic Contast and Dynamic Tone Mapping are on the feature list. One interesting capability is Auto Calibration II software, which LG says gives "results that were previously only possible with professional picture calibration".

An important capability for a home theater projector is lens shift and zoom, which allow you to match the projector image to the screen without scaling and digital keystone. The HU810 has a 1.6X zoom lens that offers vertical +/- 55%, horizontal +/- 22% shift.

This projector supports WiSA for reliable low-latency uncompressed surround-sound. It also has smart features built-in so it can stream on its own.

“Our new CineBeam projector performs equally well with bright or dark scenes, elevating picture quality and enhancing the viewing experience to a whole new level,” said Jang Ik-hwan, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “There is currently no other product like it on the market today, a demonstration of how LG continues to deliver innovation that improve lives.”
