Furthering its appeal as a projector-on-the-go, the ProBeam can transmit audio to any Bluetooth speaker using its Sound Sync Adjustment tech, eliminating the need for any wiring. It also supports wireless mirroring via Miracast, letting you project a movie from your smartphone. That'll make it much easier to set up in a small apartment, for instance, or let you "stream TV shows on a camping trip," as LG puts it.
To help you set things up quickly, the device has four corner and auto keystone features, in case your setup is off kilter from the projection wall. To make the ProBeam useful as a regular TV, it comes with LG's webOS Smart TV platform and Magic remote, giving you easy access to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or BBC's iPlayer in the UK, to name a few services.
It sounds like a nice option, but as I mentioned, all depends on the price -- if it's well under $1,000, it may end up being the hit that LG's hoping for. Hopefully, we'll get a look at it during CES 2017 starting January 3rd in Las Vegas, where it'll be on display in LG's booth.
