The primary function of the MI Ultra Short 5000 Ansi Lumens laser projector is to use Apportonics’ ALPD 3.0 laser light source technology. If you can build a theatre in your own home, this is a pretty nice effect.

The Xiaomi mi ultra short 5000 ansi lumens laser projector offers a maximum light source brightness of 5000 lumens and 3000 native contrasts. In addition to this, it uses a T968 Cortex-A53 4-core 1.8GHZ / 64-bit processor. The system provides 2GB of RAM and 16GB of eMMC flash memory.

Xiaomi Mi Laser Projector: Technical Specifications

Xiaomi MI Ultra Short Features

At the heart of this projector is a DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) chip. This is a small electromechanical device used in DLP (Digital Light Processing) projectors. The full HD version used in this Xiaomi product has over 2 million small aluminum mirrors.

Texas Instruments developed this technology in the late 1980s. It didn’t spread to housing until the early 2000s, which coincided with the heyday of home theatre.

LCD, DLP, and LCOS technologies, which are the most used in home projectors, have long reached their maturity. Which has caused that all of them when well implemented, manage to offer us a very high overall image quality.

Picture Quality

In any case, the characteristics of the Xiaomi mi ultra-short that told you about in the first paragraph of this section contribute to giving the projectors that opt ​​for them a high brightness. And a native contrast quite remarkable.

On the other hand, the most controversial performance of DLP projectors derives from the color wheel used by models with a single Xiaomi mi ultra-short 5000 ANSI lumens laser projector to restore color. And is that this component can cause some people to see a defect in the image, known as the “rainbow effect,” which can be quite annoying.

DLP, LCD, and LCOS technologies, the latter in the form of Sony’s SXRD and JVC’s D-ILA variants, offer us very high image quality when well implemented.

Fortunately, most manufacturers of Xiaomi mi ultra-short laser projector projectors have managed to overcome the problems associated with the color wheel quite effectively by acting both on the design of the wheel itself and on its speed of rotation and synchronization.

Although a little later, we will delve into the image quality that this Xiaomi projector offers us, it seems appropriate to tell you that as regards color reproduction, it has passed my tests on a good note.

The other key component of this projector is its light source. Unlike most of the domestic solutions that you can find on the market, which use a mercury vapor lamp, an LED source, or a xenon lamp if it is a high-end model. Xiaomi projector incorporates a source of 3rd generation ALPD ( Advanced Laser Phosphor Display ) laser lighting manufactured by the Chinese company Appotronics.

This latest technology does not use a gas under very high pressure, which is the technique used in mercury and xenon vapor lamps; bet on a blue laser beam not significantly different from that used, for example, in the transport mechanics of Blu-ray Disc players.

The Xiaomi laser projector laser light source has several significant advantages over conventional high-pressure lamps. Such as greater light delivery capacity, longer service life, less pollutant, and contributes to more accurate color restoration. Of course, it is also notably more expensive than high-pressure lamps and LED sources.

Another essential feature of this projector is that, in addition to the components necessary to generate the images on the projection surface, it has a quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 processor and 2 GB of DDR4 memory that allow it to run Android 8.1.

It is not a traditional “passive” projector; it is a relatively ‘smart’ device with which we can carry out many of the functions that Smart TVs currently make available.

We have access to YouTube, TED conferences, or the catalog of movies for sale and rent on Google Play. But we can install other apps from the Google application store. Those that we decide to install will go to the 16 GB eMMC flash memory pre-installed in this projector.

This projector uses a five-segment color wheel that allows it to reproduce, according to Xiaomi, 85% of the NTSC color space.

Xiaomi Laser Projector Audio

As far as connectivity is concerned, this device is quite well-equipped. It has three HDMI 2.0 inputs an Ethernet port, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, two USB ports, etc.

As you can see, the basic connectivity is well resolved if we bear in mind that it is a projector for a home theatre. That these devices normally have two HDMI inputs, and not three. That additional input can make the difference in a possible usage scenario. Where, in addition to a Blu-ray Disc player and a DVB-T tuner might need to connect, for example, a video game console.

Why should buy Xiaomi MI ultra short 5000 ANSI lumens laser projector?

This projector also reproduces the sound of our movies. It has two tweeters and two full-range loudspeakers attacked by amplification electronics that work in class D. This is usual in devices where it is important to occupy the minimum possible space and consume little. Surely it is the best choice.
