The THEATER is a tri-laser ultra-short throw (UST) 4K projector by Formovie. Although you may not be familiar with the brand Formovie, the manufacturers behind the THEATER are far from newcomers. A joint venture between Xiaomi Technology and Appotronics a company that makes the light engines used in some of the world's top laser-based projectors, It is no wonder there has been a buzz around this UST projector.
Being one of the first projectors with Dolby Vision support, the home cinema community have been keen to see how this stacks up against other 4K projectors. In a recent UST Laser TV Showdown hosted by ProjectorCentral this projector came out on top, beating top projectors from LG, Hisense and Samsung which retail at twice the price. This projector scored top marks in colour accuracy, detail, contrast, tone mapping and black levels whilst in HDR mode. Not only that but it was the cheapest of the triple laser projectors tested.
As people look at ways to obtain that big screen experience, UST projectors or laser TVs as they are commonly known, are becoming increasingly popular in UK homes. The Formovie THEATER projector boasts an impressive list of features. Until now, this projector has only been available in the US. We are excited to bring this impressive projector to the UK market, available for online purchase or for a demo in our home cinema centre.

“The Formovie Theater’s sleek design and bright, living room friendly image makes it a good choice for watching TV in a relatively well-lit room. And when you turn off the lights for movie viewing, its punchy contrast and very good shadow detail will do the best discs and streams justice.”
