LG will officially unveil its second-generation CineBeam Laser 4K projector (HU85L) with Ultra Short Throw (UST) technology at CES 2019, and it builds upon its predecessor as it now can be placed a little more than 2 inches from the wall to project a 90-inch diagonal image. When placed 7 inches away, the projector produces a much larger and still bright 120-inch image. The projector delivers 2,500 ANSI lumens and 4K UHD resolution, while reproducing highly accurate colors courtesy of its wide color gamut, which further increases the realism of every picture displayed. You can also stream movies and shows from your favorite services while USB, Ethernet and HDMI provide even more connectivity choices. Read more for additional pictures and information.
