LG's new Laser Display gives you 100in of full HD glory

The LG Laser Display is a short throw DLP display that projects 100in of full HD video from just 56cm

LG has today announced the launch of its Laser Display, a short throw DLP display that projects 100in of full HD video onto a specially designed screen.

Unveiled globally in January at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the Laser Display is technically classified as a display rather than a TV. It is targeted at consumers looking to create a "home cinema experience".

The device consists of a laser DLP device that projects a 100in image to a screen that sits just 56cm from the box. In Australia, the product will be bundled with LG's HR938T, a 1TB twin-tuner recorder and 3D Blu-ray player.

LG Australia's general marketing manager, Lambro Skropidis, said there is a "huge demand" for extra-large displays.

"We are pleased to bring to market another innovation that will broaden our product offering and give our customers an extra-large screen viewing experience; an experience we know there is huge demand for.

"This is a great choice for people who want to create a special home cinema experience at a more accessible price."

Unlike a traditional home theatre projector, which uses mercury-based lamps, the LG Laser Display uses 36 laser diodes. The company says these diodes have a lifespan of 25,000 hours before needing to be replaced, which is equivalent to five hours a day of use for 13 years.

The Laser Display produces just 22db of sound when in operation and the 100in screen claims to have an anti-contrast and anti-glare finish. However, it does not have 3D capabilities.

The LG Laser Display includes a DLP box, a 100in screen, and a twin-tuner recorder & 3D Blu-ray player.

The LG Laser Display will be available in Australia from mid-July and will be sold exclusively through Harvey Norman. The device will retail for $8999 and includes free installation.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
