- By Kristal Kuykendall
To address a growing demand for ultra-wide conferencing projection, LG Business Solutions USA has debuted a new 4K UHD laser projector with 21:9 aspect ratio support with “maximum visibility” for conferencing apps and presentations, according to a news release.
The new 6,000-ANSI lumen LG ProBeam BU60PSM features a bright, ultra-wide picture with enough space for hybrid workplace conferences, LG said, calling the projector “ideal for today’s most advanced conferencing apps, including Microsoft Teams Front Row.
“We increasingly live and work in a world of hybrid spaces, making virtual conferences and presentations more important than ever, and our new 21:9 aspect ratio laser projector enables employees and executives to leverage the latest software tools with full visibility while simplifying side-by-side comparisons and multi-document viewing,” said Tom Carroll at LG Business Solutions. “The ultra-bright picture capabilities and 285-inch diagonal maximum screen size make this new projector ideal for sunlit conference rooms, huddle rooms, board rooms or group meeting spaces.”
The LG ProBeam BU60PSM’s 4K UHD picture has a 3840-by-2160 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio, with the option to select 21:9 configuration with a 2560-by-1080 resolution, the company said. The projector’s contrast ratio is 3,000,000:1, and its laser light source is rated to last up to 20,000 hours.
LG said it designed the ProBeam BU60PSM with “simple installation” in mind, with vertical and horizontal lens shift. It includes dual 5-watt speakers, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability to satisfy various setups, and several wireless display options.
The projector has two HDMI inputs, two USB inputs, two RJ45 ports, HDBaseT support, RS-232 control and a 3.5mm audio-out port. It weighs 21.4 pounds and measures 14.6 by 6.1 by 12.8 inches.
Using the latest conferencing apps and features such as the new Front Row multiple live views feature in Microsoft Teams, the ProBeam BU60PSM’s 21:9 ultra-wide picture allows virtual participants to all be shown simultaneously across the bottom of the screen, below the main presenter’s image, LG said. The MSRP is listed at $4,199.
