Home theater setups are a tricky thing — despite their appeal, you’d be hard-pressed to find one offering anything close to a DIY cinematic experience. Instead, they’re usually compromised by dim displays, poor graphics, and loud fans. To make matters worse, most projectors require an armload of audio equipment to get the setup perfectly dialed. In other words, it’s hardly the convenient personal theatre you’d envisioned.
But with Samsung’s recently announced ‘The Premiere’ ultra-short-throw projector, that’s all about to change. Featuring a compact, all-in-one design, this projector can be placed right in front of a wall or screen and still provide sharp 4k image quality. As the world’s first HDR10+ certified projector with triple laser technology, The Premiere offers a peak brightness of up to 2,800 ANSI lumens, making every detail visible in even the darkest of scenes. And when it comes to speakers, this projector packs quite a punch. A combination of built-in woofers and Acoustic Beam surround sound equates to rich, theater-level noise. To put it another way — with no messy setups and no room requirements, The Premiere offers big potential in a space-saving package. Available in 130- and 120-inch models, The Premiere will release later this year.
