LG unveils their new HD MiniBeam portable projector
Portable projectors do come in an extremely niche market, and thankfully for the few different companies that are involved in this device, it has not gone the way of the netbook – at least for now. In fact, there continues to be progress in the world of portable projectors, and LG has stepped forward this time around with their model PH300, which is also known as the LG HD MiniBeam portable projector.
The LG HD MiniBeam is said to be able to deliver exceptional mobility thanks to its small size, not to mention a great viewing experience accompanied by a bunch of advanced technologies that is highlighted by a durable, long-life LED light source. Your eyes will definitely be able to appreciate the spectacularly large images, where a full charge of the LG HD MiniBeam allows it to operate for up to two and half hours. Perfect for most movies, although it is not going to be much good if you are about to embark on a marathon session of Lord of the Rings while you’re on the move.
Just what kind of technology or hardware does the LG HD MiniBeam pack underneath the hood? For starters, it will make use of an RGB LED light source which is capable of delivering a brightness level of 300 ANSI lumens, accompanied by a contrast ratio of 100,000:1 in High Definition resolution, that is, 1280 x 720 pixels. Not only that, it has been specially constructed with durability in mind, where the LED that comes with it will boast of an estimated lifespan of 30,000 hours, which is roughly the equivalent of ten years when you watch it for eight hours every single day. Knowing that most people would not do that, it is definitely going to last you more than a decade, which by then, you would most probably have moved on to other kinds of technologies already.
There is no word on pricing as at press time, although we do know that the LG HD MiniBeam will arrive in key markets in Latin America, North America, Asia and the Middle East first, before making its way to the likes of France, Germany, Portugal, Spain and Turkey in November.
