Ceiling mounts be damned, short throw tech is here

Samsung’s newest addition to its lifestyle roster is The Premiere, an ultra-short throw 4K projector that can plaster your living room with up to 130 glorious inches of the virtual screen, just inches from your wall - no more annoying silhouettes when someone pops to the loo or faffing around with unsightly ceiling mounts. The world’s first HDR10+ projector uses Stormtrooper-approved triple laser technology to create crisp, sharp pictures, with built-in speakers designed to replicate the performance of the company’s soundbars. Audio enthusiasts can still connect their home speaker setups if they want to pack a mightier punch, while a filmmaker mode that smooths out pictures aims to satisfy the most critical of cinema snobs. Netflix and Amazon binges can continue as usual too, as it comes kitted out with Samsung’s tried and tested Smart TV Platform. You can place it in front of a wall near you when it releases globally later this year.
