LG to unveil its first compact laser projector at CES 2017
In an announcement made earlier this week, LG said that it will show off its first compact laser projector – the LG ProBeam – at the CES 2017 event scheduled to be held in January. The projector will hit the markets after its global debut at the CES.
The LG ProBeam is a compact consumer laser projector capable of delivering professional performance. The projector, designed for the home theater, has been built specially for use in and around the average household.
Among the most significant characteristics of the LG ProBeam compact laser projector is an advanced laser engine which gives the device the capability to project up to 2,000 lumens of brightness. The mentioned level of brightness enables viewers to watch even in bright rooms.
Another noteworthy feature of the LG ProBeam compact laser projector is its “smart” functionality. The projector is unique in that it packs in LG’s webOS smart TV platform, without the actual TV part of the name.
About the ProBeam compact laser projector, Tim Alessi – head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA – said in a statement: “As a leader in LED projectors worldwide, LG is confident its expertise in the home entertainment sector will make its first compact laser projector a hit with consumers.”
