Dangbei Unveils First Google TV 4K Laser Projector Licensed for Netflix

Dangbei, a pioneer in smart projector technology in China, made waves by becoming one of the first manufacturers to integrate Google TV into its devices with the launch of the Atom in August 2023. The company is now continuing this trend with the release of the first Google TV 4K laser projector licensed for Netflix.

Netflix is known for being selective about the devices it approves for using its app, but Dangbei has successfully met all of Netflix’s criteria to offer native support for its Neo, Emotn N1, Mars series, and now its flagship model, the Mars Pro 2. The Mars Pro 2, much like the Atom, runs on Google TV, a more advanced operating platform compared to Android TV, providing users with an intuitive interface and easy access to the Play Store for downloading apps.

Featuring DLP display technology, the Mars Pro 2 boasts a 4K UHD resolution with 2,450 ISO lumens of brightness. The projector supports HDR10+ and HLG content, and can display images up to 200 diagonal inches, although the optimal viewing experience is recommended at 120 inches. With features like InstanPro AI Image Setup and a dedicated gaming mode, the Mars Pro 2 promises vibrant visuals and low latency gameplay.

Connectivity options include HDMI 2.1 ports, USB 2.0 connections, Ethernet LAN, and Bluetooth 5.2, as well as Wi-Fi 6 support. The projector also includes a sound system with Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS-X compatibility for an immersive audio experience.

Measuring 9.29 x 7.93 x 6.43 inches and weighing 8.8 pounds, the Mars Pro 2 is set to hit the market on May 28 with a retail price of US$1,899. However, a launch promotion is currently offering a $400 discount and a free gimbal-style stand for early customers. For more information, visit the Dangbei Mars Pro 2 product page.
