LG is planning to unveil a suite of monitors at CES next month, including an ultrawide 5K display that sports VESA’s DisplayHDR 600 badge, one of the three new HDR certifications. The LG 5K Ultrawide monitor is targeted at photographers, video editors, and app developers. Thunderbolt 3 pot on the monitor will enable transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz using a single cable. Moreover, the ultrawide monitor features 4-side edge borderless design and slim Edge-Arcline Stand.
The first monitor is a 32UK950, a 32-inch 4K monitor with HDR support, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, 98-percent P3 color gamut coverage, and Nano IPS technology similar to LG’s LED TVs.
“Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month and yet it’s one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired. With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace,” said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division in a press statement.
Attention Grabber from LG
According to the press release, “Nano IPS technology involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen’s LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. This greatly enhances the intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience,” LG explains.
The 32-inch monitor will have brighter, more intense colors, and the ability to set up dual 4K monitors. In addition, it will sport Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which will enable it to connect with devices such as a MacBook Pro with a cable.
The 34-inch monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio and 5K resolution and a borderless display. The monitor has a resolution of 5120 x 2160, which means it is quite close to being a 4K ultrawide monitor.
LG will also unveil a new 1440p G-Sync monitor at CES 2018. The company is yet to reveal any pricing information.
