LG has released a portable LED projector that provides a home theatre experience anywhere users want to watch movies, including in the backyard on hot summer nights. The CineBeam PF610P model has a Full HD resolution and a tiny, basic appearance at a price point that most people wishing to update their home theatre experience can afford.
Even though the new CineBeam model does not support 4K, LG claims that its home projector has “stunning clarity” mixed with an LED light source; the firm claims that buyers can expect a lifespan of roughly 30,000 hours. The PF610P was created for home entertainment that isn’t limited to a single room, with a low weight of 3.7 pounds and a small form factor of 8.9 x 7.6 x 2.7 inches.
A conventional 3.5mm audio connection, two HDMI ports, and two USB-A ports are included in the connectivity options for a portable projector. Customers can utilize the USB ports to connect a keyboard, mouse, or controller for usage with the bundled web browser and other apps that accept these inputs. LG’s WebOS 5.0 runs on the PF610P, giving it access to all of the leading streaming services (Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, etc.) as well as several smaller streaming platforms like Funimation and Redbox.
With a four-channel LED light source, 1,000 ANSI lumens of brightness for use in less-than-dark ambient situations, and 4 Corner Keystone adjusts the projected picture’s angle to maintain it proportionate regardless of the device’s angle, the new CineBeam model can project images up to 120 inches. Because of the 1.195 throw ratio, the PF610P can be placed relatively close to the surface on which the image is projected.
Other features include Bluetooth connectivity for connecting the CineBeam to wireless audio devices, Dolby Atmos support, HDR10 support, 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratio support, HDCP2.2, MiraCast screen sharing, AirPlay 2 content casting from Apple devices, DLNA content sharing, dual 3-watt built-in speakers, and standard remote control.
Although other home projectors on the market offer more connection, quality, and functionality for the same price, LG’s new CineBeam model stands out due to its tiny size.
Consumers seeking the best home theatre experience should consider spending a little more for a 4K model with more features (the BenQ TK810 is one solid example at only a slightly higher price). Still, those who want to move their projector from room to room may find the PF610P to be a satisfying compromise between features and portability.
The LG CineBeam PF610P is now available for $849.99 from the company’s website and LG-approved retailers.
