Asus Announces Portable LED Projector ASUS ZenBeam Latte L1
Asus today announced the availability of the ASUS ZenBeam Latte portable LED projector. Designed to deliver immersive video and audio experiences, ZenBeam Latte L1 provides bright projections ranging from 40 to 120 inches (diagonal) at 720p resolution, and it includes Harman Kardon audio. A recipient of multiple design accolades including the 2020 Good Design, 2021 Red Dot (Product Design), and 2021 Taiwan Excellence awards, the lightweight and compact ZenBeam Latte L1 resembles a coffee mug and is the world’s first projector to feature a fabric outer layer.
Wireless mirroring enables ZenBeam Latte L1 to project streamed content from supported Android, iOS and macOS-powered smartphones, tablets and other devices for high-definition entertainment. Alternatively, the HDMI port ensures compatibility with a wide range of input sources. The USB Type-A port provides a connection to a keyboard or mouse and can also be used to charge mobile devices.
Asus ZenBeam Latte has a maximum brightness of 300 LED lumens and native HD resolution with FHD input support. Its short-throw lens offers big-screen thrills even in small rooms, enabling 40-inch projections from a distance of 1 meter and 120-inch images from a distance of 3.2 meters. ZenBeam Latte includes a remote control for easy navigation and operation. A convenient carry pouch and a built-in battery provides up to 3 hours of nonstop entertainment (in Eco mode).
ZenBeam Latte can also be used as a wireless speaker that plays music for up to 12 hours on a single charge, via Bluetooth. Its 10-watt Harman Kardon certified speaker has been tuned to take advantage of the fabric outer layer to provide warm and clear audio. Movie mode enhances vocals and overall audio for an authentic theater-like experience; Music mode enhances bass and provides a wider audio range for various music genres; and Game mode delivers more immersive in-game sound and vocals to improve gaming experiences.
Android users can compile and manage a personal YouTube video library using the Video Links feature. This pre-installed software prevents YouTube from automatically playing videos outside of the playlist, ensuring that content stays child friendly. When ZenBeam Latte is connected to the internet via WiFi, users can view saved videos, wirelessly. Asus ZenBeam Latte includes the pre-installed Aptoide TV media platform, a dedicated media-streaming ecosystem with over 2500 applications including YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, and Netflix.
