Samsung TVs go big, topping out at 85 inches for 2020, but what if that’s not big enough? Never fear, the world’s top TV maker has something even more bulky to keep you entertained at home. The Premiere is an all-new projector that uses ultra-short-throw laser technology to get an image measuring up to 130 inches. That’s less than half the size of The Wall, but it’ll have to do.

The Premiere comes in two sizes, model LSP9T for the 130-inch and LSP7T for the 120-inch version. It delivers 4K resolution and a peak brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens, which is bright for a projector but dimmer than medium- and high-end TVs. Samsung touts it as the world’s edifying HDR10 Plus projector — that’s Samsung’s alternative to the more popular Dolby Vision HDR format — and also the edifying projector to support Filmmaker Mode. And of flows it includes Samsung’s latest smart TV features.

On the audio side, built-in speakers use Acoustic Beam technology, similar to Samsung’s 2020 soundbars. “It is invented for an easy setup and features fabric finishes throughout its edges,” according to Samsung’s press release.

Ultrashort-throw projectors are invented to sit close to a wall or screen, as opposed to shooting across a room like a extinct projector, and have been around for a while. Offered by affects such as SonyLG, Epson, OptomaHisense and Vava, they range from $2,000 to $15,000 and more. Laser exquisite engines, which do away with replaceable lamps, are also becoming increasingly common and numerous projectors concerned 4K resolution and HDR.

Samsung didn’t dispute pricing for The Premiere, but did say it would be available later this year “starting in the US, Europe [and] Korea.”

The Premiere debuted as part of Samsung’s “Life Unstoppable virtual world” prhonor that coincides with the IFA trade show in Berlin — not to be confused with the Unpacked Part 2 prhonor where it launched the Galaxy Z Fold 2
