At this moment it's $5,999. Don't think LG ever released a lower price. May have been an unconfirmed speculation or another LG laser projector model.

This upcoming HU85LA is a native 4K HDR dual laser UST projector and $6k is well under the the price of other UST projectors with similar features.

That price would be ridiculous , this is a native 4K projector and that will cost you......
The Sony costs around 18.000 euro's here

Correct, and it's the new dual laser projector technology.

We'll be hosting the USA's first public demo and launch event for LG's HU85LA on Friday August 2nd and Saturday August 3rd in our showroom.

I'm planning to have two HU85LA's on display/demo. One in our dedicated theater room and one in our main a/v showroom that will be in normal ambient light viewing. I'll also have back-up stock.

I was just called by a client who told me that in the HU85LA thread on the other forum a member is calling me a liar and that the HU85LA is not a native 4K DLP chip, but is an e-shift chip. Of course, he is wrong and the HU85LA is a native 3840x2160 resolution DLP chip.

So just to be 100% clear the HU85LA is a native 3840x2160 chip so it's not true 4K rendering 4096x2160, but it's not an e-shift chip period.

I was also able to move up my HU85LA launch and demo event date to August 2 and 3, 2019.

Sorry to belabor this issue of the chip set i the HU85LA, but for my final clarification the HU85LA is designed and built with TI's 0.66 DLP DMD chipset – 8.3 million pixels (3840 x2160) on the screen.

True native 4K is actually 8.8 million pixels (4096 x2160). The HU85LA delivers a native 3840x2160 full resolution with 8.3 million pixels in the 16:9 (aka 1.78:1) aspect ratio. True native 4K (4096x2160) delivers a wider screen with a aspect ratio of 1.9:1.

If anyone likes, please invite the poster from the other forum to this discussion and we can discuss this further and hopefully clear up any other misunderstanding he may have on LG's HU85LA 4K UST projector.

I got this from the TI website :

The TI DLP660TE digital micromirror device (DMD) is a digitally controlled micro-opto-electromechanical system (MOEMS) spatial light modulator (SLM) that enables bright, affordable full 4K UHD display solutions. When coupled to an appropriate optical system, DLP660TE DMD displays true 4K UHD resolution (8.3M pixels on screen) and is capable of delivering accurate, detailed images to a variety of surfaces. The DLP660TE DMD, together with the DLPC4422 display controller and DLPA100 power and motor driver, comprise the DLP® 4K UHD chipset. This solution is a great fit for display systems that require high resolution, high brightness and system simplicity.

So a little strange they didn't go full native 4K resolution but still this could be an amazing image. Looking forward to a demo.
