LG has unveiled its lineup of new monitors to showcase at the upcoming IFA 2014 conference at Berlin, Germany, next month which include an ultra-wide 21:9 curved IPS monitor, a 4K digital cinema monitor, and a new gaming monitor.
The new Curved UltraWide IPS Monitor, classified as model 34UC97, features an ultra-wide 34-inch display at an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a Quad HD screen resolution of 3440 x 1440 pixels. The LG 34U97 is compatible with both PC and Mac and supports Thunderbolt 2. Additionally, the new monitor is also equipped with LG’s MAXX AUDIO technology and a 7-watt stereo speaker system.
The second monitor LG unveiled, the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (model 31MU97), features a 31-inch screen with a screen resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels which meets the Digital Cinema Initiative’s standard for 4K resolution displays. The 31MU97 features LG’s IPS technology to reproduce 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color space making it the ideal monitor for design, photography, and video production professionals.
Lastly, the 24GM77, LG’s newest gaming monitor, features a fast refresh rate of 144Hz, the company’s Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) which drastically reduces input lag, and Motion 240 which gives the monitor a response time of less than 1ms to minimize motion blur. Other features that will be available in the 24GM77 is the Black Stabilizer to provide gamers with consistent blacks and a Game Mode which provides three optimized settings for specific game types.
“Many people spend more time in front of computer monitors than they do in front of TV sets and yet the industry’s biggest monitor manufacturers don’t seem to innovate at the same pace as TV manufacturers,” said Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company. “At LG, innovation in display technologies isn’t just limited to our market-leading TV products but is actively being implemented in our advanced PC monitors. And that’s why we’re particularly proud to be introducing at IFA the world’s first 21:9 Curved UltraWide monitor with a curved IPS display which delivers a wide 178-degree viewing angle for an immersive viewing experience.”
While LG did not announce which regions will be getting the new displays and at what prices, they did announce that the new monitors will be on display at this year’s upcoming IFA 2014 on September 5-10.
