ASUS Announces ZenBeam L2 Smart Portable LED Projector
ASUS announced the ZenBeam L2 smart portable LED projector, a powerful, compact projector with an elegant design that means it’s never out of place.
Packing Full HD (FHD) 1080p resolution and 4K HDR compatibility, a Google-certified Android 12 TV box preloaded with Netflix, 960-LED-lumens brightness, a 10 W Harman Kardon speaker with Smart Amp technology, and built-in battery, ZenBeam L2 is primed to create effortless cinema experiences, anywhere — replete with a leather carrying handle for everyday convenience with a little touch of luxury.
ZenBeam L2 has an integrated ASUS Light Wall feature to bring any room to life with a diverse cast of virtual scenes to fit any ambiance or mood, is quick and easy to set up, and has been sustainably engineered to be kinder to the planet.
Effortless cinema, anywhere
ASUS ZenBeam L2 has been meticulously designed to let modern audiences take charge of their entertainment anywhere. It includes a TV box powered by Android 12 for TV that puts the user in charge of the show. ASUS ZenBeam L2 is preloaded with Netflix, with a vast library of content on tap, and it takes just moments to set up. There’s fast access to favorite content from Netflix, Disney+, Amazon Prime Video, and more — all easily navigated using the included remote control.
ZenBeam L2 is also inherently portable, with an integrated leather carrying handle and a built-in 65Wh, 6-cell battery. This capacious cell provides up to 3.5 hours of video projection, or more than enough for any movie night.
ASUS ZenBeam L2 is engineered with a powerful short-throw lens that can project a 40-inch image from a distance of just one meter — and all the way up to a mighty and immersive 120-inch diagonal from longer distances. The projected images are both detailed and crisp images, with a native 1080p FHD resolution and a 120% sRGB color gamut, not to mention seamless compatibility with 4K HDR sources. With an integrated 10 W Harman Kardon speaker featuring Smart Amp technology, which enhances loudness and sound quality, awesome audio experiences are also assured.
When the entertainment winds down, or it’s time for something else, ZenBeam L2’s integrated ASUS Light Wall feature can spruce up the look of any room. Some 26 different built-in content options give users the freedom to turn any wall into a virtual window with colorful effects, from a cozy fireplace to an atmospheric underwater environment.
Fast, simple setup
The project auto-corrects itself as necessary when positioned off-center, applying geometric and four-corner corrections with horizontal and vertical keystone adjustments.
ZenBeam L2 also takes care of focus automatically. Its built-in focus sensor measures the distance between the projector and the screen, and then it adjusts the focus automatically finding — all in just three seconds. It’s also smart enough to avoid obstacles, resizing the projected image to ensure the optimum viewing experience in any scenario.
With a quick tap on the Google Assistant button on the remote control, ZenBeam L2 can also be controlled via simple voice commands, and it has built-in support for Chromecast — making it a cinch to cast content from any modern smartphone or tablet.
Connectivity is another ZenBeam L2 strong point. It’s loaded with an HDMI port for connecting to almost any modern video source, plus both USB Type-A and Type-C. The latter includes DisplayPort Alt mode for seamless connections with compatible devices. There’s even a built-in headphone socket, for those times when privacy or personal immersion are desired.
ASUS ZenBeam L2 has been created to be kinder to the planet. It benefits from a mercury-free eco-LED light source that provides perfectly crisp, clear images for its entire lifespan — without the use of toxic pollutants. It is also stringently tested to meet the requirements of world-leading sustainability certification and is safely packaged in an eco-friendly, FSC® Mix-certified cardboard carton.
