Luminus’ LEDs power first Smart TV portable LED projector from LG

At last week’s InfoComm 2011 event at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL (15–17 June), Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which manufactures PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for illumination applications, announced that the latest generation of its PT-54 LED chipset is powering the LG HW300T, the newest addition to LG’s line of high-brightness portable LED projectors.

The HW300T is the first LED projector to integrate a series of Smart TV features that were until recently only available in consumer flat-panel TVs. These features include built-in access to pre-paid high-definition movies from Vudu as well as social networking services such as Facebook or Twitter. The HW300T’s wireless connection is compatible with the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) protocol and allows direct access to content located on networked devices, including personal computers. In addition, the HW300T retains key features available in other LG LED portable projectors such as a built-in file viewer compatible with Microsoft Office’s format, making it equally suitable for business applications.

“As our fifth-generation portable LED projector, the HW300T adds exclusive features intended to facilitate access to digital media as well as online content and is positioned to accelerate the adoption of our products as a large-screen high-definition display for the home,” says Brian Park, marketing team leader for LG Electronics. “Continued advances from Luminus’ ‘big chip’ LEDs have allowed us to increase the brightness of our Smart TV LED projectors while at the same time reducing its total power consumption to less than 100W, resulting in an extremely energy-efficient and very compact product,” he adds.

“With the HW300T, LG continues to define and grow the market for ultra-portable LED projectors,” says Stephane Bellosguardo, Luminus’ director of global product marketing, Display Business Group. “With built-in adaptive speakers, movie streaming and internet capability through a DLNA-compatible wireless interface, this Smart TV LED projector eliminates the setup complexity of traditional projectors that require a physical connection and external source for their content, a common complaint of end users,” he adds. “This product integrates all the functionality that consumers have come to expect from their home high-definition display. In addition, the HW300T can scale to over 100 inches in size, be moved from room to room in minutes, and deliver superior color through the use of native red, green and blue ‘big chip’ LEDs.”

Luminus is demonstrating the new LG HW300T in booth 2589 at Infocomm.
