LG Electronics expands its Minibeam line of portable projectors with the PH450U and portable PH150G. The PH450U is an Ultra Short-Throw (UST) model that creates a cinematic experience in the home or office without the complication and high price associated with other projectors in this category. It is able to display a sharp 80-inch HD (1280 X 720) image from a distance of only 33 centimeters (13 inches) from the screen.
The PH450U can also be set upright on one end to render images on any flat, horizontal surface. And with a rechargeable 2.5 hour battery, this miniscule projector is perfect for viewing movies far away from a power source.
Content also can be transferred to the unit via HDMI cable with MHL capability or via a USB drive. The PH450U delivers a lamp life of up to 30,000 hours so owners can enjoy 10 years of high contrast (100,000:1) and LED color viewing enjoyment. What’s more, with 450 lumens, the PH450U is possibly the brightest battery-powered UST projector available in the market today.
The PH150G offers the same compact design of other LG Minibeam projectors in a package just half the size (115 x 115 x 44.5 mm) and weight (450g) as the PH450U. Both the PH150G and PH450U come with LG’s Triple Wireless feature for a viewing experience free of wired connections for power, audio and video source.
The PH450U will be available starting next month in Europe and North America while the PH150G will begin rolling out in target countries in North America, Europe and Asia with other markets to follow.
