LG announced today its latest front projector (FP) system. Until now, all consumer front projectors produce light using lamps or in rare cases LEDs. The LG HECTO FP system uses a lasers for illumination and a Texas Instruments DLP chip to form the image. Typical home front projectors require around a 9 to 12 foot distance from the lens to a 100-inch screen. The LG HECTO requires only a 22-inch throw to fill the screen and can be placed on the floor or the mounted to the ceiling.
