The new projector is now available for purchase.
LG has announced the release of its first compact laser projector, the ProBeam (HF80JA). The device is on sale now in the US for an MSRP of $1,500.
"As an industry leader in LED projectors, LG continually pushes the boundaries of innovation to provide consumers with affordable, high performing, and artfully designed home entertainment products," said Tim Alessi, head of Home Entertainment product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "With the ability to project up to 2,000 lumens of brightness and a picture as big as 120 inches (diagonal), the lightweight and versatile LG ProBeam can transform any living space into your very own home theater."
The LG ProBeam HF80JA features a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 and uses an advanced laser engine that is capable of producing up to 2,000 lumens of brightness. Likewise, the light 4.6-pound projector offers a slim, sleek build with a compact standing-type design and I-shaped laser engine for added portability. In addition, the device provides Bluetooth Sound Out, allowing the ProBeam to pair with any Bluetooth audio product, including external speakers or headphones. A wireless mirroring feature is included as well, letting customers use Miracast to project content from smart devices. Setting up the projector is also made simpler thanks to its four corner keystone and vertical auto keystone adjustments. Finally, the HF80JA integrates LG's webOS Smart TV platform, providing support for a growing collection of streaming services and apps -- all easily accessed through the LG Magic Remote Control.
In addition to the new ProBeam projector, LG also recently released its new SJ sound bar lineup, including the SJ9 sound bar with Dolby Atmos.
