Your LG Laser TV is equipped with innovative features that make it easy to share and display content between devices, like your PC, tablet, smartphone and more. There are multiple ways to connect and they all depend on your network connectivity and the type of device you wish to share.

LG Smart Share lets you connect your compatible smartphone, tablet, PC, camera, or USB device to your TV and showcases all of the device's audio, video, and photo content in simple menus on your screen. See how easy it is to connect.

There are a few ways you can connect your compatible smartphone or tablet to your Laser TV-wirelessly, using your home network using DLNA (if your compatible smartphone or tablet are DLNA certified) or without a wireless network connection, using Wi-Fi Screen Share via Wi-Fi Direct.
