SYDNEY, 5th May, 2015 — Following the successful launch of the LG MiniBeam range in 2014, LG Electronics Australia today unveiled its latest and greatest range of LED projectors. Boasting new sleek designs focusing on portability and functionality, the new PW800 comes with a HD TV Tuner allowing users to find new ways to watch free-to-air TV at their convenience.

MEET THE MINIBEAMS

This year, amongst a whole range of sterling products, LG has unveiled four projectors that steal the limelight, the PH300, PW800, PW800G and PF1500G are mini masterpieces. Whilst the projectors vary in design and features, they bring to the category a host of technological treats.

TECHNOLOGICAL TREATS

  • • No power concerns: The PH300 has a built-in rechargeable battery that will give you up to 2.5 hours’ worth of viewing time and weighs only 430g
  • • Laptop free projection: No longer do you need to lug a laptop around to use your projector, simply put your favourite videos or media on a USB and plug it directly into the PH300
  • • Bringing the smartphone to the big screen: With the help of an MHL cable you can now display your smartphone on the big screen
  • • Auto Vertical Keystone: These projectors will save you time in fiddling around with getting the display right as they automatically detect and correct the vertical keystone error.
  • • Long Lasting LED Light source: The LG projectors are fitted with a high-efficiency LED light source that will last up to 30,000 hours

Further to all of the above the new PW800 also packs in a couple of extra treats

  • • Live TV: Yep, that’s correct; the PW800 has a HD TV tuner and can receive free-to-air TV signals. So put it all together and you could be watching 100” Live State of Origin on the wall in your backyard with a device smaller than a ‘footy’ by your side. The PW800 series is also available without a HD TV Tuner (PW800G) for those who are content with a portable projector with Miracast, MHL, HDMI and USB connectivity.
  • • Sharing is caring: the PW800 allows for wireless screen sharing from compatible mobile devices, so at half-time during the Origin game you can mirror your smartphone screen to the 100” projection to show everyone pictures of the family holiday
  • • Cinematic viewing experience: The PF1500G projector might be small but it’s capable of dishing out 120” of vivid and clear Full HD picture quality in 3D* with its DLP High Contrast Ratio, LED light and triple XD Engine

WHAT DOES LG HAVE TO SAY?

Lambro Skropidis, General Manager of Marketing at LG Australia, said: “These projectors really can’t be passed up. We had a lot of great feedback with last year’s range of MiniBeam products and this year we’re excited to see how they will fare with the enhancements. We’re confident they’ll do well considering the improvements in both the design and function.”
