Accessory producer Anker is showing its AnkerWork B600 Video Bar at CES 2022, alongside the Nebula Cosmos Laser and Cosmos Laser 4K, a pair of long-throw laser projectors.

The Nebula Cosmos Laser 4K and Cosmos Laser are Anker's first premium long-throw laser projectors. They offer resolutions of 4K UHD and 1080p FHD respectively.

Using a laser phosphor light surface to provide 2,400 ANSI lumens of brightness, it can take advantage of AndroidTV10 to provide access to over 7,000 apps, including Disney+, Netflix, and Amazon Prime.

As well as the resolution variance, the two models also differ in audio, with the 4K using two 10-Watt and two 5-Watt speakers, while the 1080p version has two 10-Watt speakers.

Launching on Kickstarter, the Nebula Cosmos Laser 4K and Cosmos Laser will be running its crowdfunding campaign from January 11 until mid-March. After the campaign, they will be sold for $2,199 and $1,599 respectively.

The AnkerWork B600 is an all-in-one bar that combines multiple components that are used in video conferencing. In one unit, it includes a 2K-resolution camera, as well as a supplemental light bar to illuminate the user.

That camera includes autofocus, field of view adjustments, and image enhancements using its MagicSight system, to automatically affect the brightness and color temperature.

For audio, it includes a four-mic array and built-in speakers, so users don't have to fumble for a headset or a separate microphone if they don't want it. There's also dynamic beamforming and algorithmic assistance to help reduce background noise and improve clarity.

Putting them all into one unit that can rest on top of a monitor could also help reduce the amount of desk clutter.

Available for preorder, it is launching on January 25 at $219.99.
