LG intros 'Hecto' Laser TV short-throw projector

LG has made a jump on most of its competitors ramping up its pre-CES 2013 announcements. Among its newly unveiled is its 'Hecto' Laser TVprojector, which is set apart from the crowd by its short-throw capability. Unlike other projectors that need to be positioned well away from a screen, the 'Hecto' Laser TV can project a 100-inch display from as little as 22-inches away.

LG claims that its new approach allows the users to create their home theater in a whole new way, while also retaining the ability to be mounted on a ceiling or near the floor. It also comes with a special screen that helps to maintain a crisp, 1080p image, coupled with a high 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. LG has also built in a digital tuner, and two 10-Watt speakers into the Laser TV with support for virtual surround.

A complete array of inputs is also onboard, including 3x HDMI, an optical audio output and an RS-232 interface for integration with any home theater. It also builds in LG's Smart TV platform that works with its built-in Wi-Fi and new Magic Remote with voice recognition to deliver content from YouTube and Netflix among other portals. Rounding out the package is support for Wi-Di and Wi-Fi direct (Miracast) for wireless play from a range of compatible devices.

LG will be demonstrating the new 'Hecto' Laser TV at CES with pricing and availability expected to be announced at that time.
