Delivering 6000 ANSI lumens, a 20 percent increase over LG’s next brightest models, these laser projectors are designed to project highly detailed imaging for critical government, financial, engineering, medical and digital signage installations in medium to large-sized spaces. Rated at 20,000 hours of laser life and offering lens shift and 1.6x optical zoom, both TAA-compliant models excel in critical needs environments.
“LG recognizes that certain business sectors require ultra-bright, reliable and long-lasting projectors that can project fine details at large sizes, and these two new models are purpose-built to do just that,” said Dan Smith, vice president of business development at LG Business Solutions USA. “These projectors complement LG’s full line of professional-grade digital signage solutions, including class-leading DVLED, OLED and LCD digital signage displays.”
The main difference between the two models is the maximum resolution, with the ProBeam BU60PST offering 4K UHD (3840×2160) and the ProBeam BF60PST delivering WUXGA (1920×1200). With a minimum picture size of 40 inches and a maximum of 300 inches (25 feet), both the 4K UHD and WUXGA models can be used in any size room for virtually any size meeting or crowd. Standard inputs include two HDMI ports, RJ-45 (for HDBaseT support) and RS-232C (for IP control) jacks, and convenient wireless MiraCast™ support. The two models utilize the webOS 4.5 smart platform.
Both ProBeam models include two integrated five-watt speakers to provide onboard audio, while WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity enable boosting audio through a separate stereo system. The 12-point keystone adjustment available on the 4K UHD model and 4-corner keystone on the WUXGA model ensure users have flexibility to create a perfect image, regardless of placement angle or uneven surfaces.
“With these ultra-bright projectors, organizations can turn even brightly lit spaces into huge digital canvasses while introducing little noise and equipment into the room,” Smith said. Weighing only 25.4 pounds and producing just 33dB of fan noise in operation, both new models maintain the LG ProBeam line’s role as “one of the industry’s most compact professional-grade projection solutions,” he added.
The use of laser projection also helps users manage long-term costs, because owners don’t need to worry about bulb outages that interrupt operations and require expensive replacements. Also, LG ProBeam projectors with laser light sources are mercury free, which helps contribute to a greener, healthier planet.
