LG Launches New HS201G, HX301G LED Projectors
May 26, 2010 1:20 PM
LG Electronics India has announced the launch of its two new portable projectors, the HS201G (SVGA) and HX301G (XGA). With the launch of these two new LED-based projectors, LG plans to target the LED projector segment aggressively in India.
Successor to the previous version HS102G, the new HS201G features brightness of 200 ANSI lumens & contrast ratio of 2000:1, it promises high picture quality, connectivity and vivid graphics, claims LG. The HS201G has long lamp life of up to 30,000 hours and the product weighs only 800 grams offering good durability and portability. The HS201G LED-based projector utilizes the Digital Light Processing (DLP) technology. Its Twin XD Engine offers color correction so that images appear more natural. Furthermore, the internal Advanced Color Engine enhances colors brilliantly, creates warm and natural skin tones, and sharpens edges with the Edge Enhancer for accurate and independent color control, LG claims. Thanks to HDMI 1.3 upscaling, the HS201G portable LED projector claims to eliminate on-screen color banding, providing smooth tonal transitions and subtle gradations between colors.
Its Real Quick On/Off feature turns the projector on and off in only five seconds, which means no waiting for the long warm-up time of conventional projectors. The system can play DivX files, display JPEG images and even play MP3 music files through external hard drives, USB memory sticks or memory cards connected through the USB port. Also its claimed 30,000-hour life means that the HS201G LED projector can be used for eight continuous hours and still last 10 years.
Another portable LED projector, the LG HX301G, has an XGA resolution with brightness of 270 ANSI lumens. The HX301G portable LED projector promises to offer the best combination of brightness, picture quality and portability, LG claims. It can clearly project 1024 x 768 pixel images with vibrant color and a contrast ratio of 2,000:1. With light output of 270 ANSI-lumens, the new portable HX301G LED projector can be used to show presentations, video and photos in rooms that are dimly lit as well. LG claims the HX301G is one of the most energy efficient projectors, aided by its Phlatlight LED lamp, which is rated to last 30,000 hours.
LG claims to have further enhanced the HX301G’s image quality with its XD Engine image processor with the improved DMD chip. This is the same technology that LG uses in its high-end HD TVs. The DMD chip enhances colors, contrast and skin tones, while ensuring that edges are crisp with no misalignment. Other intelligent features on the HX301G include the ability to show PowerPoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, Word documents, PDF files and JPEG images, or play DivX and MP3 files directly from USB memory and many more.
Commenting on the new launch, R. Manikandan, Business Head, Business Solutions, LG Electronics India said, “These LED projectors are an addition to LG's winning products, offering smart technology, packed with aesthetics. Both the new projectors HS201G and HX301G deliver ultimate portability and longer lamp life making them ideal projectors for CXOs, Business Travelers and home projections.”
The HS201G and the HX301G are available in the Indian market at a price of Rs. 48,000 and Rs. 71,000, respectively.
