LG adds Bluetooth connectivity to LED projectors

LG adds Bluetooth connection options to its portable, battery packed, Minibeam projector series

Announced in a recently issued press release, LG has installed Bluetooth connectivity to its PH550, PW1000 and PW1500 Minibeam series projectors. In addition to Wi-Fi connections also being available, this new technology means that you can project at meetings or in confined spaces without worrying about multitudes of cables getting in the way.


LG calls its invention 'triple wire-free connectivity', explaining it in the press release to mean "that users can send content to the projector from a smartphone or tablet using the Wi-Fi mirroring-enabled Screen Share, connect to speakers wirelessly via Bluetooth and unplug from the wall for 2.5 hours of viewing pleasure using the rechargeable internal battery."

In addition to offering wireless connection and an internal battery, these projects are seriously tiny - some models being less than the size of an A4 sheet of paper. Winning a CES 2016 Innovation Award, the PF1000U model is capable of projecting a 100-inch image when placed only 15 inches from a surface - showing some serious power packed under the hood.
