CineBeam displays 4K HDR content on a screen projected up to 120 inches. And all from a projector you can put in a bag and take with you for outdoor viewing. The LG CineBeam PU700R is a portable short throw projector, which means it can display content at shorter distances. It can cast an image from 60 inches to 120 inches wide – much larger than most televisions. There is an automatic screen adjustment feature that allows the projector to optimize screen alignment and focus. Plus, you can rotate the projector up to 90 degrees, so there’s a full range of motion for your screen.
When it comes to trying to create the perfect home theater setup, you’ve probably thought of a projector. But it’s big, expensive, and really boring. Fortunately, LG’s latest CineBeam projector, the PU700R, is a portable short-throw option that you can set up in your living room and take with you. For those familiar with projectors, you’ll notice that LG’s latest offering is very similar to Samsung’s Freestyle — although things have improved.
Not only that, but the latest version of CineBeam displays content in 4K UHD with HDR10 support. It even includes HLG and Dynamic Tone Mapping for more consistent color that improves brightness and keeps details crisp. This piece of kit also gets very shiny. There’s a 1,000 ANSI lumen LED inside, which LG claims will last up to 30,000 hours—that’s a few movie nights. Since the lamp is so bright, you will be able to view content both indoors and outdoors.
Software-wise, the PU700R CineBeam runs on LG’s webOS, just as it’s used for TVs. Here you can access all kinds of streaming services, smart features, and even the web. AirPlay 2.0 and Android ScreenShare are also supported, allowing you to easily stream content from your device. There is Bluetooth for your audio, allowing you to connect the speaker to a set of speakers. And for those who prefer wired connections, you’ll find USB-A, USB-C, and HDMI 2.1 ports on the projector.
Ready to take your movies with you? LG’s CineBeam PU700R can be ordered directly from LG for $1,699 in the US. Currently, it is only available on the country side, without any word on international availability. However, we expect the projector to make its way to other markets at a later date.
