WHILE cinemas can reopen under the National Recovery Plan as Malaysia eases Covid-19 rules in some areas, not all are keen to take the risk to venture out.
Furthermore, only fully vaccinated individuals are allowed into cinema halls.
Movie buffs need not despair as the LUMOS RAY projector aims to fulfil the needs of movie fans, as they can enjoy a cinematic experience in the comfort of their own home.
Packing the essential specs for a home cinema in your living room or bedroom, it is an all-in-one projector with Netflix and YouTube loaded, and comes with built-in speakers.
With prices starting from a mere RM599 in comparison with international brands at RM1,800, it is an affordable solution for movie buffs not just during the pandemic but anytime.
The LUMOS RAY is a short throw projector (1.3:1), suitable for bedrooms, living rooms and entertainment rooms.
It can project an impressive 100in (254cm) screen with just a 3m distance so you can enjoy your favourite movies on a massive screen in a small space.
While some projectors are blurry due to their resolution, this is not the case with the LUMOS RAY.
With 1080p-supported resolution, you will get great visual clarity.
Normal projectors have around 1,000 lumens but the LUMOS RAY projector has 3,000! The high brightness makes the colours more vivid in darkness, not grainy or washed out.
What is a cinematic experience without surround sound? The inbuilt Dolby Audio provides good cinematic surround sound so you can feel like you are in the thick of the action.
The projector comes with built-in Netflix and YouTube applications, two of the most used apps by Malaysians.
Unlike traditional projectors, LUMOS RAY has smart features like its own Android operating system which makes it a plug and play device.
You can even mirror your smartphone for mobile games, Spotify, watch Tik Tok, or even Zoom call on a huge screen. This feature is only available on the RAY Smart version and works for both Android and iOS phones.
Aesthetics-wise, the projector has a premium, elegant look. The minimalist and sleek design adds a touch of modernity to your living space.
Since its launch, the LUMOS RAY projector has received hundreds of five-star reviews from many satisfied users on its website. LUMOS is a proud local home-grown brand that is used and trusted by many local celebrities and influencers.
