XGIMI launches a clever projector hidden in a ceiling light, and a stylish IMAX 4K projector

Fancy a cinema-spec IMAX Enhanced projector in your front room, or a secret ceiling projector that pretends to be a magic lamp? XGIMI has you covered. At CES 2024, the firm is showing off its Horizon Max, an IMAX projector boasting some smart software and the use of dual light sources to deliver a wider color gamut, strong brightness, and improved contrast. The same technologies will be coming to some of the firm’s more modest projectors too.

The Horizon Max is being unveiled early, as it isn’t expected to go on sale until late 2024. But XGIMI is clearly very pleased with the device, which it says is the world’s very first long-throw smart projector with IMAX Enhanced certification – something that was previously only available in very premium-priced projectors. The goal here is to make the best 4K projector for people who want theater-like visuals true to the aspect ratio of the original movie (available through Disney Plus and some 4K Blu-rays) – although as yet we don’t know what its actual price tag will be.
