The Horizon Max from Xgimi is the world’s first IMAX Enhanced-certified long-throw smart projector, promising to deliver a cinematic experience previously reserved for high-end projectors.
The device offers a high-quality projection experience, ensuring customers can experience IMAX pictures and signature sounds in their own homes, including the infamous IMAX aspect ratio, higher brightness levels from HDR content, and clearer images.
Two new and updated technologies that Xgimi is debuting at CES are ISA 5.0 (Intelligent Screen Adaptation) and Dual Light 2.0. ISA 5.0 leverages the 3D ToF sensor on the projector to locate the best projection position on walls, while the Dual Light 2.0 technology uses a dual-light source for improved picture quality, especially in brighter environments.
The projector’s design is meant to fit into any home, with a vintage look featuring wood-like paneling. The price and launch date of the Horizon Max remains to be determined, but Xgimi has mentioned that Dual Light 2.0 and ISA 5.0 technologies will be coming to more of its lineup in 2024.
At CES, Xgimi also unveiled the Aladdin, a 3-in-1 product that combines a ceiling lamp, a high-end projector, and connected speakers. The space-saving gadget projects a 100-inch picture directly from the ceiling, preventing direct light exposure and allowing for a 0.7:1 projection ratio. The projector earned the CES Innovation Honoree Award and is set to launch in Japan in June 2024.
