After announcing that it will launch world's first 88-inch OLED display at CES 2018, LG has made another big announcement for CES.

That being said, 4K projectors aren't exactly new, but LG is boasting that compared to the competition, their 4K projector is smaller, easy to install, and all done without sacrificing image quality, and also being easy on the wallet. The HU80KA is a pretty impressive projector from LG, as the company had looked to solve some of the issues with other high-end projectors, which included difficulty in installing it.

The company hails its mirrorless I-shaped engine technology for being able to attain the compact size and design of the projector.

LG 4K UHD projector can create a 150-inch screen on your wall that can get bright up t0 2,500 lumens.

LG HU80KA projector includes a webOS 3.5 smart TV interface to access online 4K streaming services. On the audio side of things, HU80KA comes with two 7W speakers, but it can easily be connected to external speakers or soundbars via optical output, HDMI or Bluetooth. Sadly, the details about the projector do not mention Dolby Vision.

The company says that the latest projector is half the size of traditional 4K projectors on the market. The projector can be kept on the floor, mounted to a wall, or simply hung from the ceiling, and perform equally well, regardless of the position. "LG's 4K UHD projector will lead the way in changing how consumers view 4K content in any room in the home, wherever there's an audience".

While other 4K projectors are short and squat, the HU80KA is a much taller tower that appears to be created to sit directly on the floor rather than on a table or stand.

As we reported earlier that the South Korean giant has prepared many devices on board for CES 2018. Stay tuned with us for more reports on it.
