Anker Nebula Cosmos Laser is a 4K home theater for any room

What if you could take the world’s most compact laser theater just about anywhere? Where would you choose to watch your next movie or show? In your garden? In a nearby park? How about a weekend at a ski resort or at the beach?

With the Anker Cosmos Laser 4K Nebula, that’s exactly what you can do. Of course, it’s still best used as intended in more theatrical settings, but there’s nothing stopping you from taking it wherever you go.

The Cosmos Laser 4K is a portable laser projector capable of producing a 4K resolution image, with seamless autofocus and 2400 lumens brightness. Setup is a breeze, and it comes with a dongle – which nests neatly into the back of the projector – that integrates the Android TV streaming platform so you can watch Netflix and over 7,000 apps. Additionally, the 30-watt speakers support Dolby Audio and AiFi technology to deliver immersive 3D soundscapes. It’s like having a home theater system at your fingertips, anywhere, anytime.

4K Ultra-HD resolution means a clear, polished picture wherever you project your screen. And the 2400 lumens of brightness ensure the picture is clear, bright and vivid, exactly what you expect from a modern entertainment system.

In addition to Bluetooth, the Cosmos Laser 4K and the original Cosmos Laser model come with an Android TV Wi-Fi dongle. With the dongle, you can access the Android TV 10.0 streaming platform, opening up access to more 7,000 apps and millions of movies and shows. Google Assistant and Chromecast are also supported, giving you additional functionality for your projector.

Easy installation anywhere

Of course, the best part is that the Cosmos Laser 4K is incredibly quick and simple to set up. It features seamless autofocus that always works to deliver the best image and automatic gridless keystone correction in both horizontal and vertical fields. Automatic Screen Alignment provides even more convenience, helping you center and correctly position the display on a screen or related surface. Together, it’s called Intelligent Environmental Adaptation which only takes three seconds or less to deliver the ideal image.

You can pair the 388-watt Anker Powerhouse II portable power station with the Cosmos Laser 4K to get up to three hours of video playback on the go. This includes using the highest brightness settings, with high definition video and sound. Do you want to install it in your garden for a family movie night? No problem! How about your roadside camp during your trip? It works too!

You can also easily move it around your home, installing it in any room, from a playroom to your living room, bedroom, even your patio or garden. This provides truly free and limitless opportunities like sharing personal content with your friends and family, setting up a makeshift theater, or any other entertainment you would like to partake in.

Cosmos Laser vs. Cosmos Laser 4K

Besides the 4K ultra-HD resolution, the differences between the standard Cosmos Laser and the Cosmos Laser 4K are minimal.

The Cosmos Laser still offers a screen brightness of 2,400 lumens, however, the output resolution is vibrant 1080P HD. Plus, the built-in speakers are 20 watts and support Dolby Audio and AiFi for immersive 3D sound.

You still get seamless autofocus, grid-free keystone correction, auto screen alignment and Android TV 10.0 support, plus built-in Wi-Fi.

Both models include the Cosmos Laser projector, a remote control with batteries and an Android TV dongle. Don’t worry, the dongle slides into the rear panel of the projector, out of sight, while leaving the HDMI port on the back of the device free.
