About the Hisense 100L5G-CINE100A
All-in-one home theater package
The 100L5G-CINE100A delivers sharp visuals on a big 100" screen.
All-in-one home theater package
Hisense conveniently packages together everything you need for a big, immersive home theater experience with their 100L5G-CINE100A. This package includes a 4K projector and a massive 100" screen — all in one box. The projector also has a built-in audio system and even an HDTV tuner for over-the-air and cable broadcasts.
The setup is simple, too. The projector's ultra short throw design saves you the trouble of mounting it on the ceiling or running cables across your room. It's easy to fit into most rooms — just place the projector on a low table right under your screen and you're on your way.
Bright, colorful picture
The 100L5G-CINE100A's X-Fusion™ Laser Engine features a single monochromatic laser and a phosphor color filter to create a wide range of dynamic colors — well above the usual standard for 4K UHD content. You'll enjoy rich images with true-to-life colors.
4K enhanced by HDR
With all the streaming options available these days, there's more great-looking 4K content out there than ever before. This projector-plus-screen combo lets you enjoy the range of 4K content now available on streaming services like Disney+ and Amazon Prime Video. If you want to up your game further, connecting a 4K Blu-ray player is the way to go. Standard and high-definition content gets a boost too with 4K upscaling, so you can benefit from enhanced image quality no matter the source.
If 4K wasn't crisp enough, the 100L5G-CINE100A supports High Dynamic Range (HDR10) content, bringing out additional detail and contrast when viewing HDR-encoded programs.
Light up your room with bright, bold colors.
Many projectors require a separate audio system even for just casual TV-watching because their audio capabilities are so limited. This Hisense projector includes a built-in audio system with Dolby® decoding, a pair of full-range speakers, and 30 watts of amplification. If you want to expand, though, you can connect its optical digital output to your compatible home audio system of choice.
In between shows and movies, you can even pair a mobile device to your projector via built-in Bluetooth® and rock out to some tunes.
The 100L5G-CINE100A has three HDMI ports for connecting a Blu-ray player, gaming console, or home theater receiver. HDMI port 2 is compatible with enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), letting you pass immersive audio formats like Dolby Atmos®.
There are also two USB ports: the rear port provides power to HDMI dongles or other devices, while the side port makes it easy to plug in a flash drive loaded with music or videos.
Easy to use with voice control
The projector's built-in Android TV interface lets you browse streaming services and download new apps from the Google Play store without connecting another source. With built-in Chromecast you can stream video or music to the projector or even mirror your mobile device onto your 100" screen. The included remote also has a mic with built-in Google Assistant, letting you control the projector and use streaming services with just the sound of your voice. If you use an Alexa device, it's compatible with that too.
If you're a movie afficionado, the 100L5G-CINE100A supports Filmmaker Mode, helping you experience your favorites the way their creators intended. Gamers are supported, too. Game Mode keeps input lag down to a minimum to ensure your controls feel smooth and responsive. The projector will even recognize gaming consoles and adjust accordingly with ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode).

Ultra Short Throw Projector & Screen
Hisense Laser TV: The Hisense L5G is an ultra short throw laser projector that comes paired with either a 100" or 120" (diagonal) ALR projection screen. With high brightness output from the ultra short throw laser projector and a screen built to reject ambient light and boost image contrast, the Hisense Laser TV is well suited for bright or dark room environments.
X-Fusion Laser Engine: Experience true-to-life color with impressive dynamic range. The L5G's X-Fusion Laser Engine combines a Blue Laser with a Phosphor Color Filter for true-to-life color with impressive dynamic range. The L5G’s X-Fusion Laser Engine exceeds the Rec.709 standard for UHD 4K and lasts long enough to enjoy more than 25,000 hours of content.
- High Brightness: The Hisense L5G ultra short throw laser projector produces 2700 lumens of brightness for use in bright and dark rooms.
- Dynamic Contrast: The L5G offers a 1,000:000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for a brilliant HDR (High Dynamic Range) video image with detailed highlights, vibrant colors, and bold blacks - making everything pop off the screen.
Note: To protect your eyes, proximity sensors dim the lasers when something gets too close.
ALR (Ambient Light Rejection) Screen: At mere inches from the wall, the L5G ultra short throw laser projector can cast a massive 100" or 120" image. The Hisense LG9 comes with either a 100" or 120" (diagonal) ALR projection screen. The ambient light rejection screen utilizes anti-glare technology with a 0.4 gain, and 150 degree viewing angle. The picture is bright and detailed in all types of lighting, letting you enjoy the ultimate large-screen viewing experience from any room. The perfectly paired ALR (Ambient Light Rejecting) screen means you don't have to turn-off the lights to get a great picture. The ALR screen will display bright and crisp images in any type of lighting.
- For the 100" ALR screen, the back of the ultra short throw laser projector should be positioned about 11.5" from the wall. A minimum viewing distance of 9.8' is recommended for optimum viewing experience.
- For the 120" ALR screen, the back of the ultra short throw laster projector should be positioned a little over 14.625" from the wall. A minimum viewing distance of 14.75' is recommended for optimum viewing experience.
Note: There are no zoom or focus adjustments to be used with smaller or larger screens. The projector also does not offer Lens Shift or Keystone Correction.
4K Ultra HD via XPR Pixel-Shift Technology: The Hisense L5G ultra short throw projector utilizes DLP XPR Technology (Texas Instruments' pixel-shifting technology) to achieve 4K resolution with 8.3 million distinct pixels. XPR Technology perfectly quadruples the projector's 0.47" DMD chip's 1920x1080 pixels to generate 8.3 million pixels with ultra-fast pixel shifting speed for 4K content. 4K Ultra HD has 4x more detail than Full HD 1080p.
Note: The Hisense L5G has a native resolution of 1080p, but can accept a 4K video signal and display a 4K video signal through XPR Pixel-Shift technology.
HDMI 2.1/2.0: The Hisense L5G is outfitted with two HDMI 2.1 inputs and one HDMI 2.0 input to connect your Ultra-HD and HD sources; such as your Blu-ray player, satellite/cable box, and game system. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to the Laser TV.
- Supported Video Resolutions: All three HDMI inputs (including HDMI 2.1 and 2.0) will accept up to 4K @ 24/30/60Hz (does not support 4K/120Hz)
- HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the TV's HDMI inputs. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All three HDMI inputs will support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of 4K video (4:2:2 and 4:2:0 are also supported by all HDMI inputs). With 4:4:4 color, luminance (brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
Note: The projector does not contain any analog video inputs.
HDR (High Dynamic Range): The L5G ultra short throw laser projector offers the ability to provide a premium High Dynamic Range (HDR) experience, with a higher level of contrast between light and dark images. HDR delivers a much higher level of contrast between light and dark to produce an image that is more realistic and closer to what the content creator imagined. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth.
- HDR10 is an open standard and currently the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and 1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the receiver and your projector that the video content is encoded using HDR.
- This projector does not support Dolby Vision, HDR10+, or HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma).
MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation): With microsecond level-processor response and MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation) technology the L5G ultra short throw projector ensures you never miss a moment of the action. Fast moving video images from sports, games and action films are exceptionally smooth and crystal clear. It has a native refresh rate of 60Hz.
Picture Modes: The Hisense ultra short throw laser projector offers a number of preset pictures modes (such as Filmmaker and Game) to suit a variety of applications and content. You can also manually adjust picture settings such as Contrast, Brightness, Color, Tint, Sharpness, Noise Reduction, White Balance, Color Space, and Gamma. Picture modes and settings can be applied to an individual source or all sources.
- Filmmaker Mode: Filmmaker Mode reads metadata from your content to automatically disable any post-processing motion settings on the L5G ultra short throw laser projector so you see video as the creators intended.
- Game Mode with ALLM: You can enable Game Mode with ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) to optimize the projector's settings for playing video games with a gaming console. Game Mode bypasses and disables some of the projector's video processing to allow for faster video gaming response time.
Built-in HDTV Tuner: The projector features a built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Clear QAM tuner, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals (up to 1080i); subscription still required to receive cable channels. A single RF-type coaxial input is use to connect an external indoor/outdoor antenna (sold separately).
30W Speaker System: With a built-in 30 watt speaker system that supports Dolby Atmos, the Hisense L5G ultra short throw projector delivers an expansive and immerse soundstage with clear dialog, crisp highs, and deep bass.
eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel): The Enhanced Audio Return Channel within the projector's HDMI 1 input enables the projector, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an AV receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the projector to your AV receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the projector. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the projector. eARC allows audio from the projector tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, or HDMI inputs connected device to be heard through your eARC compatible AV receiver via the projector's HDMI eARC input.
- The audio from the projector's tuner, HDMI inputs, USB ports, and Android TV apps can pass as Dolby Atmos (via Dolby Digital Plus), Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby Digital, or 2ch PCM.
- DLNA compliant devices will only output audio at 2ch PCM only.
Note: Your AV receiver or soundbar will also have to support eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) to accommodate the playback of these high resolution audio formats. If your AV receiver or soundbar only supports ARC (Audio Return Channel), audio playback will be limited to Dolby Digital or 5.1ch/2ch PCM.
Analog & Digital Audio Out: The Hisense L5G is outfitted with analog & digital audio outputs (only one output can be used). The stereo minijack (3.5mm) analog output can be connected to a receiver, soundbar, powered speakers, or set of headphones. The projector's optical (toslink) digital output terminal will output Dolby Digital (when available) or 2ch PCM. The digital optical output terminal only sends an audio signal in Dolby Digital when receiving Dolby Digital surround sound from a digital broadcast channel through the tuner, HDMI inputs, Android TV apps, or USB ports. When the projector's analog or digital output is selected, the projector's built-in speaker system is muted.
Note: DTS multichannel audio formats are not supported.
