Earlier this year, LG has announced the new ProBeam BU60PST laser projector 4K designed primarily for presentations, lectures, and office collaboration, which is now finally available to buy in the US.
The new LG projector corresponds to the 4K format: an image is formed with a resolution of 3840 × 2160 pixels. The size of the picture can be up to 300 inches diagonally, and the contrast ratio is 3,000,000: 1.
The 4K projectors provide a maximum brightness of 6,000 lumens. Thanks to this, the image is perfectly legible even in well-lit rooms. It also supports HDR10.
