At their Pompton Lakes, NJ showroom, assembled the greatest collection of 4K ultra short throw projectors the world has ever seen. The showcase’s hosts presented 17 projectors on 6 different ultra short throw projector screens.

An Ultra Short Throw projector, also referred to as a UST or Laser TV, is a type of projector that sits directly under the screen instead of being set up on the other side of the room. These UST projectors use a super bright laser light source and when combined with the close proximity to the screen allows the projectors to output a clear, vibrant image even in a well lit room. This is especially the case when paired with an ambient light rejecting projector screen specifically made for ultra short throw projectors.

“Essentially, with UST projectors we are taking projection out of the basement and into the living room.” said Brian Gluck, President of “The explosive growth of this particular segment of projectors has made projection viable for every living room in America and not just to be relegated to a darkened, dedicated theater space.”

The event was sponsored by Hisense, Epson, AWOL Vision & Spectra Projection and also showcased some powerful speakers from Next Level Acoustics, the Kaleidescape media player and an Aegis custom ultra short throw projector cabinet. All of this, wired together with the help of Metra AV connectivity products.

For the showcase, each projector was paired with an ambient light rejecting screen specifically engineered for use with ultra short throw projectors and hooked up so that they simultaneously played the same content coming from the Kaleidescape media player.

TheUST projectors featured in the showcase are as follows: Single Laser Projectors Hisense L5G Hisense L5F Epson LS500 Optoma P2 BenQ V7050i LG HU715Q Samsung LSP7T Vava 4K UST Wemax Nova Xgimi Aura Triple Laser Projectors Hisense L9G Hisense PX1-Pro Samsung LSP9T LG HU85LA AWOL Vision LTV-3500 Vava Chroma JMGO U2

Gold sponsor, Spectra Projection provided the majority of screens used for the showcase with other screens on display by Screen Innovations, Hisense, Epson and Vividstorm.

The day was divided into two parts. First was the single laser category. The second half of the day was dedicated to the triple laser projectors. Lunch was provided between the two sessions.

This event was an opportunity for projector enthusiasts, tech influencers, custom A/V installers, and manufacturers to come together to learn all about ultra short throw projection and experience these impressive 4K projectors in action for themselves. There was also a livestream so those who couldn’t attend in person, could still participate in the event.

The showcase additionally gave AVS Forum members the chance to actually meet and mingle in person instead of through the internet on the forum. Between the in person event and the livestream, around 275 turned out for what will be the first of many future projector showcases.
