XGIMI HORIZON PRO test: an ultra HD LED all-in-one video projector under Android TV-Digital, Horizon Pro

Pro Horizon

On the operating system side, we find Android TV 10 animated by a Quadricoire Mediatek MT55 Cortex-A9612 processor, a Mali-G52 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space. The video projector also has wifi and bluetooth. The latter is used to connect an external speaker, but also so that the pro horizon acts like a speaker.

XGIMI HORIZON PRO test: an ultra HD LED all-in-one video projector under Android TV

Writing note: 4 out of 5

The XGIMI Horizon Pro is an ultra HD DLP video projector equipped with powerful LED lighting, a 16 W audio system signed Harman Kardon, and especially Android TV which gives it access to all streaming applications or almost.

Presentation

The Horizon Pro video projector has a DLP Texas Instruments 0.47 inch DMD (DLP470TE) displaying a native ultra HD definition of 3840 x 2160 px. As a reminder, this generation uses the wobulation (Extremely fast display of several full HD images shifted from each other) at 240 Hz to broadcast four Full HD images side by side and thus produce an ultra HD 60 Hz image of 8.3 million real pixels. The chip is coupled with a LED light source of 2200 lumens. Good to know, the LEDs of the XGIMI Horizon Pro do not change and benefit from a lifespan announced for 25,000 hours, three to four times more than a classic UHP (ultra high pressure) lamp. This video projector also has an audio system made up of two speakers and a radiator signed Harman Kardon, with a total power of 16 W.

Another peculiarity (and not the least), the camera on the front gives this xgimi model the possibility of carrying out the focus alone, to correct the trapeze automatically – very practical when you often move the device and it is Dépache -, and even to resize the image in order to avoid obstacles. A surprising and practical feature, even if we lose the native definition.

On the operating system side, we find Android TV 10 animated by a Quadricoire Mediatek MT55 Cortex-A9612 processor, a Mali-G52 GPU, 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage space. The video projector also has wifi and bluetooth. The latter is used to connect an external speaker, but also so that the pro horizon acts like a speaker.

Displaying an ultra HD definition, the Xgimi Horizon Pro is logically quite expensive, or around € 1,700. We find few direct competitors. There is the Viewsonic X10-4K, also ultra HD LED, but it is a little less intelligent, because devoid of automatic settings and Android TV. We also identify the Vava 4K ust Laser Projector with its more powerful laser and an ultra -tier focal length, both more expensive and bright. The Samsung The Premiere LSP9T and the Sony VPL-VW290ES reference, both displayed around € 5,000, cannot be considered direct adversaries.

2D image quality

This video projector is provided with a fixed optics with a ratio of 1.2: 1 and that can project a basic 2.5 m image with a decline of 3 m. With this model, our measurements are made at 2.5 m in order to obtain an image of 2 m basic, as for the other projectors. The pro horizon does not offer Lens Shift (Optical device for moving vertically or horizontally the image projected without deforming it or having to move the device), but it is possible to modify the horizontal and vertical trapeze to compensate for its possible inclination … at the price however of a slight loss definition.

The pro horizon enjoys a automatic development and trapezoid system. At each start -up, the video projector makes the focus to guarantee the sharpness. The adjustment of the trapeze is found in the settings. The horizon pro then displays white dots on the screen and adjusts the trapeze according to the result of the photo captured by the camera on the front. The system can also adapt the image according to the obstacles. For example, if there is a table in the projected image, it will be resized to stay on one side. We obviously lose in native definition, but the result is quite stunning.

Pro Horizon

Horizon Pro offers you the true quality of 4K image available in such a compact projector, up to a gigantic 200 -inch screen size. 2 With a definition of up to 3,840 x 2160 pixels, you can move up a gear during a game evening or make a canvas with your favorite film in Ultra-HD. Gigantic image and exceptional quality: The Horizon Pro meets all your desires.

Super luminous projection technology of the pro horizon surpasses competition. It is no longer necessary to choose another part or another projection angle during the day or in the light environments. The pro horizon is the brightest projector in its category, plus 30 %, with an exceptional brightness of 1500 Lumens ISO. 1 The horizon pro still projects ultra -clear images with bright colors, even in a bright environment.

Discern each note

The sound part of the Pro Horizon was designed with Harman Kardon specialists. Benefit from a cinema quality sound thanks to two wide active speakers 8 W each and developed specifically for the horizon. Harman Kardon sound offers unequaled immersion and balance, with low distortion and a high dynamic response. Associated with DTS Studio Sound technology, the professional horizon offers virtualized surround audio experience with improvement of dialogues and bass.

Image intelligent adaptation technology (ISA) of XGIMI facilitates the installation of projectors. With the automatic correction of trapezoidal distortion, automatic development, intelligent screen alignment and intelligent obstacle bypass, Horizon delivers an unprecedented, automated and sustainable visual experience.

Automatic screen alignment

Avoid the stress of finding the perfect position of your projector. Thanks to the intelligent screen alignment, Horizon automatically adapts the image projected to your screen, whatever its size.

Automatic Keystone Correction

The automatic correction of trapezoidal distortion offers you more flexibility when you install horizon in your home. Place your professional horizon where you want (with a vertical or horizontal anle of +/- 40 °) and automatically get a perfect image. 3

Obstacle Avoid

The sockets, the tables and even the plants are no longer a problem. Instead of reorganizing your living space, settle down comfortably and leave the intelligent bypass function of the obstacles of the horizon automatically resist the image around the objects.

The automatic focus allows you to devote less time to the adjustment and more time to viewing. Enjoy an image that remains lively and clear without having to lift your little finger.

Note: 1. The brightness (light yield) varies depending on the conditions of use. The yield of white light is measured in accordance with the ISO 21118 standard. The nominal value represents the average value of mass production and is tested under ideal laboratory conditions in performance mode/high power mode. 2. For an optimal visual experience, we recommend that you use a projection size between 60 and 150 inches. Overcoming this beach can affect the quality of your projected content. The quality of the display may vary depending on the product use habits and environmental conditions. 3. In order for the calibration to be carried out with precision, it is recommended that the angle of lateral projection does not exceed 40 ° (degrees).
