In Las Vegas, the CES 2022 announcements also concern video projectors
. At Anker, we have just discovered the Nebula Cosmos Laser, a particularly compact 4K model.
In addition to its small footprint, the device seems to shine. Literally.
Available in 4K and 1080p
The device should actually display a brightness of up to 2400 ANSI lumens, which is sufficient brightness for use in a well-lit room. In comparison, the Nebula Mars Pro II, another device of the brand, diffuses 500 lumens. Compatible with HDR10, the laser in the Cosmos Laser uses ALPD 3.0 technology, which must precisely enhance the brightness.
In addition, this new model being a laser device, it would be synonymous with a longer lifespan. If the brand will be happy to talk about a 4K video projector, the Cosmos Laser will also be available in a 1080p version. However, we do not yet know what connections these models will have to receive their video streams. In any case, they will be compatible with Wi-Fi and will also integrate 30 W speakers with Dolby sound.
The machine will run on Android TV 10, which should allow easier access to the main streaming services. The user can also stream content from a tablet or smartphone.
A portable video projector … but not too far from the outlet
Another advantage of the Nebula Cosmos Laser: the installation. The video projector includes an automatic autofocus and alignment correction system. This must take care of optimizing the focus on its own in order to obtain a clear image effortlessly.
This functionality goes hand in hand with the portable character of the Cosmos Laser, regular movements no longer being synonymous with long and tedious adjustments. Who says portable video projector, says reduced dimensions. Unfortunately, if the photos show us an effectively compact model, with a solid grip, we do not know exactly the weight or the dimensions of the machine.
In addition, a constraint arises: unlike outdoor use that Anker foreshadowed (see the photo above), it will be necessary to keep a power outlet nearby. Indeed, the Nebula Cosmos Laser does not carry a battery.
Finally, regarding availability, Anker plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign during which it will be possible to pre-order one of the two models. This campaign will run from January 11 to mid-March, with launch prices announced at $ 1,599 (approximately $ 1,410) for the 1080p version and $ 2,199 (approximately $ 1,950) for the 4K version.
