LG is trying to make it easier for consumers to ditch their TV in favor of a slim, technology-packed projector. It’s a funny proposition because LG is responsible for some of the best displays on the market today. The new LG ProBeam laser projector fits in your backpack and weighs just under five pounds, but still includes many popular features generally found on TVs. Most notable is the inclusion of webOS, the much loved smart platform that brings access to all of your favorite streaming services.
The ProBream also has an impressive 2,000 lumen bulb, which is brighter than many portable options on the market today. That’s enough juice to clearly see your content in a well-lit room during the day. Another intriguing feature is Bluetooth connectivity that allows users to beam audio to wireless headphones or speakers with minimal latency. We know that it will support full 1080p content, but it’s not yet clear how many inputs this projector will sport. LG is expected to unveil final pricing at CES 2017 in January.
The LG ProBeam (model HF80JA) is ideal for the home cinema experience, because it is equipped with an advanced laser engine that produces up to 2,000 lumens of brightness, enabling viewers to enjoy video content even in a bright room. The LG ProBeam has a slim, sleek design, which makes it more portable, thanks to its innovative I-shaped laser engine. Employing a compact standing-type design, the 4.6-pound LG ProBeam is the industry’s lightest Full HD laser projector in the brightness range of 2,000 lumens. In addition, the LG ProBeam’s classic look allows it to blend in with any interior décor.
