ASUS has announced the availability of the ASUS ZenBeam Latte Portable LED Projector, one of the most popular products at CES 2021. Designed to deliver immersive video and audio experiences, ZenBeam Latte L1 delivers bright projections from 40 to 120 inches diagonal and 720p resolution and boasts Harman Kardon signature audio. It gives users a more flexible option when streaming their favorite videos or movies or when presenting in the meeting room, allowing them to adjust the screen size to best fit their living or working space. ZenBeam Latte L1 includes the Aptoide TV app to allow users to view quality video content optimized for large screen devices
Winner of numerous design-related awards, including Good Design 2020, Red Dot 2021 (Product Design) and Taiwan Excellence 2021 awards, the light and compact ZenBeam Latte L1 has an original aesthetic reminiscent of a coffee cup and is the first projector in the world to feature an outer layer of fabric, a detail that gives an appearance that adapts to any environment in the home or office. The design with the fabric finishes also has the advantage of improving the acoustics of the sound and offering advantages in terms of cooling because it improves the flow of air. The internal cooling fins also help to effectively dissipate heat.
Emotions on the big screen
The wireless mirroring function allows ZenBeam Latte L1 to project streaming content, for high definition entertainment, from smartphones, tablets and other devices animated by Android, iOS and macOS. In addition, the HDMI port ensures compatibility with a wide range of external input sources. The USB Type A port provides the necessary support for connecting to a keyboard or mouse and can also be used to charge mobile devices.
ZenBeam Latte has a maximum LED brightness of 300 lumens and native HD resolution with support for FHD input. Its short throw lens guarantees big-screen thrills even in small rooms, as 40-inch projections are possible from a distance of 1 meter and 120 inches from a distance of 3.2 meters.
Great sound for any scenario
ZenBeam Latte can also be used as a wireless speaker to play music via Bluetooth® for up to 12 hours on a single charge. The 10 watt Harman Kardon certified speaker has been equalized to take advantage of the outer fabric layer to ensure warm and clear audio. The design also takes heat dissipation into account to ensure the best acoustic performance in all conditions.
The exclusive software included ASUS AudioWizard provides three predefined modes to ensure optimized audio for different scenarios. Movie mode enhances overall voice and audio for an authentic movie theater experience; Music mode enhances bass and offers a wider acoustic range to enhance various musical genres; Game Mode equalizes more immersive game sounds and voices to enhance gaming experiences.
Entertainment for families
ZenBeam Latte includes a remote control to offer easy navigation between options and intuitive operation. The convenient carrying case and an integrated battery that offers up to 3 hours of non-stop entertainment (in Eco mode) make ZenBeam Latte the perfect solution for an outdoor party with family and friends.
Android users can build and manage a personal YouTube video library using the Video Links feature. This pre-installed software prevents YouTube from automatically playing content outside the playlist, so that the content displayed is always suitable for children. When ZenBeam Latte is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi, users can view saved videos wirelessly.
ZenBeam Latte has pre-installed the Aptoide TV multimedia platform, an ecosystem that allows you to access multimedia streaming through over 2,500 applications including YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu and Netflix.
