LG INTRODUCES COMPACT LASER PROJECTOR DESIGNED FOR HOME CINEMA ENTHUSIASTS

‘LG ProBeam’ Delivers Cinematic Viewing Experience In Compact, Portable Form Factor

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 31, 2017 — LG Electronics USA today introduced the “LG ProBeam,” a new laser projector that offers the versatility to deliver a full cinematic viewing experience anytime, anywhere. The compact new home theater projector is available now in the United States at a suggested price of $1,499.99.

“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 projector (model HF80JA) is equipped with an advanced laser engine that produces up to 2,000 lumens of brightness and features 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 one of the industry’s lightest Full HD laser projectors in the brightness range of 2,000 lumens.

“Never worry about screen distortion,” says Alessi, thanks to the LG ProBeam’s vertical Auto Keystone alignment feature that automatically detects and corrects any screen image distortion for ideal projection alignment. (Manual Keystone alignment also is available for fine tuning adjustments if needed.) With Bluetooth audio out, the LG ProBeam can be paired with any Bluetooth audio product such as an external speaker or headphones.

What’s more, the LG ProBeam features Wireless Content Share via the LG TV Plus App. Simply download and install the free LG TV Plus app from Google Play or the App Store on a compatible Android or iOS device, to stream videos and photos easily from a smartphone or tablet to the projector over a home network. The LG TV Plus app also includes a handy touchscreen remote control feature for convenient and easy control of the LG ProBeam.

The LG ProBeam is equipped with LG’s award-winning webOS Smart TV platform, giving consumers access to the ever-growing number of streaming services and other desired programs based on location and availability.* LG’s Magic Remote Control allows for easy navigation of the webOS interface.

      On LG OLEDs. You go on and disable SIMPLINK. Fine. But everytime you turn on your HDMI device it enables itself back again. This happens because they have disables two key features that were present in previous OSs, as you can see clearly here
      link hidden, please login to view (they even put screencaps of the menus where you see the missing options in the 23) These functions are Auto Power Sync and Auto Device Detection.
      Man updates are supposed to add functionalities not the other way around. It's very annoying to turn on your TV and have your AVR turn on without you wanting to.

      Anyone found a solution for this problem?

      Hi all,
      I'm wondering how you can get into the service menu (In Start) on an old LG Smart TV (42LB630V) running WebOS 1.4.  I have a Samsung Galaxy S6 (SM-G920F) with a IR blaster, I have tried sending '0x04FB 0xFB04' to I which should be IR code to enter the menu, but that doesn't work.
      I have also tried entering it with the SSAP-Web, but I get:
      error: 500 Application error {"errorCode":-101,"returnValue":false,"errorText":"\"com.webos.app.factorywin\" was not found OR Unsupported Application Type" The SAPP-Web app does works though, because the TV does respond to Get info
      { "returnValue": true, "product_name": "webOS", "model_name": "HE_DTV_WT1M_AFAAABAA", "sw_type": "FIRMWARE", "major_ver": "05", "minor_ver": "05.90", "country": "omitted", "device_id": "omitted", "auth_flag": "N", "ignore_disable": "N", "eco_info": "01", "config_key": "00", "language_code": "en-GB" } The reason I want to access the menu is because I've enabled DEBUG mode on my TV through the NVM method and I want to enter a root shell trough UART to enable SSH and root access.
      Gaining root access through NVM:

      Company’s Latest Autonomous Robot Solution Provides Safe and Reliable Delivery
      With its Four-Door Design and Six Wheels With Independent Suspension

      SEOUL, June 24, 2024 — LG Electronics (LG) is launching its latest LG CLOi ServeBot (model LDLIM31), an autonomous, door-type service robot designed to provide safe delivery services in hospitality and healthcare settings. Featuring a four-door design with ample interior storage space, the CLOi ServeBot can perform simple and repetitive delivery tasks to reduce the burden on busy staff.
      This introduction further strengthens LG’s portfolio of advanced AI robots and robot control solutions, aligning with the company’s plans to accelerate the expansion of its B2B business, particularly in the delivery and logistics services sector. The CLOi ServeBot was first released in South Korea, with upcoming launches scheduled in key markets across North America and Asia. For more details, please visit
      link hidden, please login to view. The door-type CLOi ServeBot has gained international recognition for its innovative and convenient design, earning honors at the Red Dot Design Award 2024 and the iF Design Award 2024. Boasting four internal compartments, each capable of holding items weighing up to 30kg, this new model is able to make multiple deliveries or collections. Its generous and secure cargo space can comfortably accommodate as many as 32 standard-sized coffee cups,* while its shelving can be easily adjusted according to item- or load-size.
      Tailored for indoor hospitality and healthcare environments, the LG CLOi ServeBot is capable of utilizing elevators to move between floors. Its six wheels, each with independent suspension, provide excellent stability, enabling the CLOi ServeBot to transport beverages over uneven surfaces without any significant spillage. For added user convenience, the CLOi ServeBot’s doors can be set to open or close automatically during operation. The LG CLOi ServeBot can even tell when a delivery has been completed, as camera sensors built into its internal compartments detect when items have been removed. And thanks to an AI algorithm, the new model can safely navigate around obstacles, determine the optimal route to its destination(s), and communicate with up to 20 other CLOi ServeBots to maximize task efficiency and avoid potential collisions.
      A front-facing 10.1-inch display on the CLOi ServeBot functions as a mobile advertising platform, with content easily uploaded via the LG CLOi Station (accessible through mobile or web) or the CMS mobile app. Furthermore, LG’s latest CLOi solution can escort customers to a given destination and provide voice guidance for visually impaired users. Additionally, users can monitor the robot’s status in real time using the LG CLOi Station, which also offers convenient paging and scheduling functions.
      “LG’s latest service robot employs advanced platform technologies covering AI, communications and control, to help streamline operations in hospitality and healthcare settings,” said Roh Kyu-chan, vice president and head of the robot business division of LG Business Solutions Company. “Leveraging our capabilities and expertise in robot solutions, we will continue to deliver innovative LG CLOi ServeBot models to meet the specific needs of diverse sectors.”
      With years of robotics industry experience, LG continues to provide versatile robot solutions for various environments, including airports, hotels, hospitals and warehouses. The company is now developing a comprehensive suite of solutions to efficiently manage the entire distribution process, from supplying robots to facilitating the last-mile delivery of ordered products.
