Projectors are a great way to have a home theater-like experience without leaving home. You can get a large screen that looks good from almost any angle. But most projectors require high ceilings and a lot of space, and you will handle shadows when someone is standing up. Samsung̵7;s upcoming projector, called the Premiere, avoids these problems by projecting a 130-inch image from inches away.
Ultra Short Throw (UST) projectors use lasers instead of traditional lamp technology to create an incredibly bright image on a large scale from a short distance. You can place the projector directly in front of the wall and still get a “display” well over 100 inches.
The premiere is no different in that factor. You can get it in one of two models, LSP7T and LSP9T, which can beam a 4K image up to 120 inches and 130 inches respectively. But Samsung’s perception of UST is a little different from other available models right now.
First, it is the first projector to be certified for HDR10 +, thanks to a triple laser technology and 2800 ANSI lumens. In theory, it should enable the Premiere to deliver dark contrasts that other projectors are struggling to achieve.
And because it’s a Samsung product, it comes with Samsung’s Smart TV platform, which gives you access to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. The premiere also has built-in subwoofers and Acoustic Beam surround sound. This means that you can skip the entire installation of the sound system if you prefer.
In recent months, we have seen how consumers spend more time at home and how everyday life continues to change. Television has become a center of entertainment, a fitness partner, an employee and a source of news, says Jongsuk Chu, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “The premiere imagines the home cinema experience with a completely new, compact design, 4K picture quality and great sound for cramped spaces that can be used for all home activities and living room arrangements.
With a UST 4K HDR projector, you get a large, high-quality image without the need for a large space to fit all your media components. Even a small apartment with a large enough wall can benefit from it. The projector even includes a movie creator mode that disables Motion Smoothing (AKA soap opera effect), so you can enjoy a movie that the director intended.
Samsung says it will release the premiere in the US, Europe, Korea and other regions later this year. The company said it would announce pricing at a later date.
