LG has just introduced the new CineBeam ultra-short-range (UST) flagship projector, model HU915QE. The 4K three-channel laser projector emits a super bright image of 3700 ANSI lumens, which is 100 inches in size when placed only 9.8 cm (3.9 inches) from a wall, thanks to an excellent radiation ratio of 0.19.

Other UST projectors such as the AWOL LTV-3500 require a distance of 24.9 cm (9.8 inches) to achieve the same image size diagonally of 100 inches. And while this may not sound like a large range, it can easily exceed the width of ordinary buffets where the projector will live.

Even better, you can place the new LG CineBeam 18.3 cm (7.2 inches) from the ambient light rejection screen (ALR) for a huge 120-inch picture with improved contrast to get the most out of the projector’s support for HDR10, HLG, HGiG) and vitality, even when daylight enters the room. Just be prepared to spend another $ 1,000 in the process.

The LG HU915QE works with webOS, which means easy access to all your favorite streaming services, including Netflix (which is still a challenge for Android TV projectors). It also has support for screen duplication, Apple’s AirPlay 2 and a pair of USB 2.0 jacks for additional content retrieval options. The projector has an integrated 40W 2.2-channel speaker for short-term use or three HDMI eARC ports to get the most out of your home theater sound setup.

LG says the CineBeam HU915QE will be available in the first half of 2022, starting with “key markets in North America, Europe and the Middle East, followed by markets in Latin America and Asia.” LG did not announce pricing, but a quick check at B&H and elsewhere gives a pre-order price of $ 5,996.99, which sounds quite right.
