SAN JOSE, Calif. (September 14, 2020) — WiSA® LLC, founded by Summit Wireless Technologies (NASDAQ: WISA), today announced that Association member LG Electronics will introduce the world’s first WiSA Ready™4K UHD laser projector in key markets starting in the fourth quarter.
“The WiSA Association is always eager to see what technology innovation LG is going to release next, and the CineBeam 4K UDH projector does not disappoint,” said Tony Ostrom, President of WiSA. “Like many of LG’s latest TVs, this WiSA Ready projector can easily connect with WiSA Certified™ speakers from global providers including Klipsch, Bang & Olufsen, Enclave Audio, Bouchard, Harman, System Audio, Axiim and many others, creating a home theater cinema environment like no other. This impressive solution is an amazing option when looking to create a professional theater experience in the home.”
As the first WiSA Ready projector, the LG HU810PW 4K UHD Smart Dual Laser CineBeam Projector will easily connect to WiSA USB Transmitters, allowing seamless wireless audio and control communication with all WiSA Certified™speakers. In addition to its wireless audio capabilities, the projector boasts a wide range of projection size flexibility, offering a compact 40-inch projection size all the way to a 300-inch projection, which allows any user to easily watch a small screen picture in a bedroom or experience larger theater viewing.
The projector elevates any picture quality and performs equally well with both dark and bright scenes – spec’d at 2,700 ANSI lumens of brightness. Its 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution brings crisp, sharp images to any screen. With the projector being WiSA Ready™, and when combined with a WiSA Certified USB Transmitter and WiSA Certified speakers, the sound experience is comparable, if not clearer, to what one would experience in a professional theater setting.
“With home movie viewership at an all-time high, we think our newest CineBeam 4K UHD Laser projector is going to make a significant impression in the home cinema market,” said Kim Sang-hyun, head of IT Product Planning at LG Electronics. “Thanks to its incredible picture quality, large projection capability and WiSA Ready technology, LG CineBeam can deliver immersive video and audio experiences to home viewers like never before.”
