We've gotten the inside scoop about a new XGIMI projector, one of the leaders in compact projection technology. Introducing the XGIMI Horizon Ultra.
The XGIMI Horizon Ultra was supposed to be announced in the context of the IFA in Berlin, but XGIMI launched a teaser countdown on their site for the end of August and the EISA awards press release actually revealed it to us two weeks early before the show.
There is a lot to be excited about this new lifestyle projector. In fact the XGIMI Horizon Ultra has already won the EISA Award for "Best Buy Projector" for 2023-2024.
This is the newest small cube projector that pack a big punch as the top of their line that includes the XGIMI Horizon and XGIMI Horizon Pro.
We'll break down everything we know about this new projector for 2023 and keep you updated as we learn more. So make sure you check back regularly.
Bright Dual Light Source
While their other portable projectors are LED based. The new XGIMI Horizon Ultra combines a laser and led light source. This ‘Dual Light’ engine combines the brightness and color accuracy of LED with the contrast and sharpness potential of laser.
Bright Light Source
We expect the lumen output to be at least 2200 lumens. (Given that the XGIMI Horizon Pro offers that many.) From the launch event however we learned it will in fact offer 2300 ISO lumens.
This would put it in the same light output range of other lifestyle projectors like the Formovie X5, Hisense C1 and JMGO N1 Ultra.
Impressive Picture Quality
With a 4K resolution you know this projector will be an incredibly sharp and produce a vibrant picture. The new XGIMI Horizon will also support Dolby Vision content for optimal image quality. This new projector is expected to cover over 95.5% of the DCI-P3 color space and 99.9% of the Rec.709
Built-In Sound System
The picture isn't the only thing to be excited with this projector. The XGIMI Horizon Ultra will feature a built in sound system from Harman Kardon. So you know the audio will be clear and powerful for such a small design.
Smart Projection Technology
This all-in-one portable projector thanks to its Smart TV integration from Android TV which gives you access to a selection of some of your favorite streaming apps like Hulu, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video and more. However it will lack a native Netflix app.
The XGIMI Horizon Ultra will offer a super fast game mode that achieves a ultra low 18ms lag time and features a 4K 60Hz refresh rate.
Easy Set Up And Portability
The XGIMI Horizon Ultra combines versatility and portability. This portable projector is compact and light weight making it easy to move around. Added onto this is that the projector features auto-focus and auto-keystone technology that automatically optimizes the image on any projection surface. You can use it anywhere in your home or backyard without compromising on style or performance.
How Much Will The XGIMI Horizon Ultra Cost?
Price is always an important factor when it comes to lifestyle projectors. That's why the XGIMI Horizon Ultra will come in at a very reasonable $1699 cost. This is in line with the other projectors in it's class and is an outstanding value given what this unit will be able to produce.
