Xgimi Horizon: A fully cinematic projector

Xgimi Horizon
Xgimi Horizon

Xgimi specializes in creating projectors, which are mostly high-end due to the features they contain. We have already analyzed some models that have left us with good feelings for the performance they deliver. It does not mean that they are perfect, since testing them in detail we have found some negative points, but nothing that affects their conditions. Today we bring the Xgimi Horizon which turns out to be an excellent option for viewing movies.

Exterior design of the Xgimi Horizon

Unlike what we are used to, the design of this model has a better construction, it even adds details that make it visually more attractive.

Most projectors have similar designs, where you will hardly find anything different that is worthwhile in terms of aesthetics . However, for this model we see a somewhat different construction that seeks to provide a new visual experience that can be better integrated into the different environments where you can place it.

The first thing to consider is its appearance, unlike elongated projectors, this seems to be compressed, which reduces space and facilitates its placement . In addition, it has a weight of 2.9 kg, which means that it is not as portable as it seems, although due to its dimensions you can store it in a backpack and carry it with some comfort.

It presents a black chassis that provides a touch of elegance, in addition, the construction it has is resistant. It really is a modern projector with minimalist details that allow better integration . The spaces are well covered, although we believe that they could have included better ventilation.

Connectivity

It has good connectivity that begins with the inclusion of two HDMI 2.0 inputs that you can use to transmit the signal from compatible devices, although due to other characteristics of the projector, it may not be very necessary in some cases. It also offers two USB 2.0 ports that are used to play content.

Other physical connections that it integrates are an Ethernet port , an audio output , headphone jack and DC . As you can see, they are useful connectors that you can get a lot of use out of. The most interesting thing is its wireless section that offers interesting options such as dual-band Wi -Fi connection, and connection via Bluetooth .

Projection quality and functions in general

The Xgimi Horizon stands out for projecting a 4K resolution natively with greater versatility, in addition, this quality can be maintained at a size of 300 inches, which is the maximum that this model allows. Obviously we recommend using it in a smaller size, but this shows us how powerful its projection is.

It also offers super bright technology that dwarfs the competition, allowing excellent quality to be maintained no matter what the environment, meaning you don’t have to worry about the venue as this projector won’t have a problem. It is rated at 2,200 ANSI lumens , enough for rich, vivid colors.

Images will be quite sharp, even in very dark or bright environments. Add to this that it combines the most powerful imaging technologies and adapts them to the optical sensor that integrates artificial intelligence. Through the X-VUE 2.0 engine , the clarity and fidelity of dynamic images is increased, obtaining pure colors.

It also offers HDR10 and HLG compatibility for better contrast and brightness. And not to forget the brightness adaptation via AI that we find incredible, since it allows the projector to adapt to any environment and maintain its quality and even improve it.

Sound

Being a premium model, you will notice that it is built on a professional sound design. This is achieved thanks to the fact that its speakers are manufactured by Harman Kardon , which ensures that we enjoy high-quality audio. In total you have a maximum power of 16W that may not seem like much, but it will be enough.

In addition, they have compatibility with some enhancement technologies that ensure immersion and excellent balance. Add to this that there will be low distortion and high dynamic response . In general terms, you will enjoy virtualized surround sound to achieve better dialogues and deep bass.

Other cool features

It will be really useful for playing content thanks to all the features it integrates, providing a solid experience in terms of its performance.

There are other things to highlight about Xgimi Horizon , for example, its compatibility with Android 10 , a system that allows us to access certain interesting functions. To start with, you can install a good number of applications, and this is because it has 32GB storage that is accompanied by 2GB RAM .

Thanks to this system there will be other interesting functions, for example, Google Assistant that allows us to control certain actions with our voice. It also features Chromecast built- in for streaming content from compatible devices. As if that were not enough, it has been designed with low blue light for comfortable and safe viewing.

Finally it has other important features like super fast boot up , auto focus and trapezoidal correction . Without a doubt, this is a powerful projector that you can use mainly to view content.
