“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,” LG Electronics USA head of product marketing Tim Alessi said in a statement. “LG is proud to continue pioneering the home cinema experience in dynamic new ways.”

On Monday, LG announced that it will be showing off a new one for CES 2017 in the LG ProBeam, its first compact laser projector designed for the home theater. According to Digital Trends, the LG ProBeam has the characteristic of the advanced laser engine that gives it the ability to project up to 2,000 lumens of brightness. It also features the “smart” functionality, that often found in TVs but not in any projectors.

Unlike most business projectors, the ProBeam has a more table-friendly vertical build in place of that wide and horizontal frame and weighs only 4.6 lbs. Very light, isn't it? The ProBeam also uses LG's webOS software. It can be seen in the company's smart TVs to ensure you won't be without the usual staples of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and whatnot.

As reported by TechRadar, LG hasn't mentioned prices yet. It also appears that the ProBeam is being marketed for home and leisure use, which could lead to a more consumer-level price - but that's not a guarantee.

The LG ProBeam with model HF80JA is very ideal for the home cinema experience because it is equipped with an advanced laser engine that produces up to 2,000 lumens of brightness. This feature enables viewers to enjoy video content even in a bright room. If you’re looking for a projector you can use instead of a TV rather than alongside one, this is a big deal.

If you are curious to see if the ProBeam is up to snuff, the very competitive laser projector will be on display at LG's booth January 5 to 8 during CES 2017.
