LG: of the autonomous pico projector passive 3D

LG IT Division presented yesterday the news of the second half. In addition to ultra-portable projectors rather oriented office, this division also prepares high-end projectors reserved for professionals or wealthy individuals.


LG occupies the land with the renewal of its high-end 3D projector, the "CF3D". Anecdotal update summarizes effectively replace its two HDMI 1.3 inputs with three HDMI 1.4a inputs, the first fully compatible with 3D review.

Its technical characteristics are nevertheless impressive, two years later, since it is one of the few projectors (especially) for the general public operator passive 3D, which is more with Full HD frames for both eyes. It needs to do a specific metallic fabric, charged alone a thousand euros, and is home to six SXRD panels, two per primary color, three per eye. All outputs 2500 lumens, a contrast ratio of 7000: 1 and calibrates itself automatically by means of a camera.

The "LG CF3DA" is now charged about 7,000 euros with six pairs of polarized glasses, against 10,000 for his predecessor.


The "HA84G" is itself a video projector with ultra wide angle lens that can project an image of 100 inches in just 55 cm distance. Little is known about it, because it is not expected until November or December, but it will also of passive 3D using a specific screen and its hybrid LED source produce 2,000 lumens.

There is talk of a rate of between 4,000 and 6,000 euros for the projector, and about 3,000 euros for the specific screen.

LG PA70G and PB60G

In another register, that of the office, LG also launches ultra-portable projectors, halfway between the pico projectors and entry level projectors.

The "PA70G" delivers 700 lumens in a housing 230 x 170 x 44 mm 1350 g, the "PB60G" 500 lumens in 158 x 103 x 33 mm for 450 g. They are able to project an image of 40 inches to a distance of 1.3 m, even in a lighted room.

They are both based on a DLP panel and a LED light source, enabling ignition and instantaneous extinction, delivering a definition of 1280 x 800 pixels, a dynamic contrast ratio of 15,000: 1 and supporting the active 3D optional glasses.

Armed with a pair of speakers or 3 1 W each and a USB host port, they read themselves all sorts of office and multimedia files, such as PDFs, PowerPoint presentations or DivX HD. A battery giving them a 1 hour autonomy 30 at 2 am, and avoiding transporting the transformer almost as big as them, is optionally available for about 100 euros.

The "LG PA70G" and "PB60G" will be commercialized to respectively 600 and 500 euros.


The "LG HW300Y" is finally a variant intended for the entertainment of the above two ultra-portable projectors. It is distinguished by a reduced brightness at 300 lumens, despite its housing 160 x 119 x 54 mm to 780 g, and the lack of 3D compatibility, but in return it supports DLNA and Smart TV environment through a Wi-Fi adapter optional.

This model will soon be sold 500 euros.
