CES 2017 was a huge hit with different brands showcasing their technologies including smartphones, projectors capable of delivering 4K resolution and more. Optoma that is famous for their projectors showcased their products at Las Vegas convention center where the highlight was newly announced short, very short and ultra short throw variants. Few of them can be recognized as the immediate replacement of the ones released previously.
Likewise, Ankar released their Nebula projector that is quite ahead of the competition in terms of design offering ultra short throw capability, offering full HD resolution.
Another brand (HiSense) that is not quite known for their projectors and is around since eight years recently showcased a pair of laser projectors offering a single and a dual laser respectively. The price tag is hefty with $12999 for the technology where the package includes the audio system and ALR i.e a light absorbing display particularly designed for the projectors featuring ultra short throw. Both of these models offer 4K UHD incorporating 4k UHD chipset.
There was another stunning projector released by Sony i.e VPL-VZ1000ES offering an immersive experience via its home theater projection technology.
Another groundbreaking technology from Casio was the option to project any content on an uneven surface like exposed brick walls or even dents into the wall as much as inch deep. The projector could handle that easily with sensing the surface and adjusting the display accordingly.
Though all of these products are yet not announced and are the concept, which means that they might not ever get to the market in the future.
Followed by that, another interesting one was the pocket projector that offered around 500 lumens featuring ultra short throw design. The projector could be used by simply converting a table into a surface where you would like to project the content.
LG also featured their Full HD LED projector offering a pocket design. Announced few weeks back, the projector offers ProBeam HF80J. There is yet a lot to be shared about the technology at the show and we are all excited to share with you as quick as possible.
