LG Electronics will use Berlin’s upcoming IFA exhibition to unveil two new 21:9 UltraWide monitors, comprising the 38in 38UC99 UltraWide curved monitor and the 34UC79G 144Hz IPS 21:9 curved UltraWide gaming monitor.
The 38UC99 is ideal for tasks that require attention to detail, boasting advanced IPS UltraWide QHD+ (3,840 x 1,600) resolution and wide colour gamut – covering a reported 99 % of the sRGB colour space. This model’s ideal application would be as a workstation monitor for visual content creators, data crunchers and other multitasking professionals.
As the first UltraWide monitor to feature a USB Type-CTM port, the 38UC99 offers a peek at the future of connectivity. The advanced port allows users to transmit content and data as well as charge another device such as a smartphone or laptop at the same time.
The monitor also includes capabilities to customise display options with a few clicks of the mouse and store customised colour settings with the Onscreen Control software and My Display Pre-set.
The 38UC99 also features two 10W built-in Bluetooth compatible speakers.
Moving onto the 34UC79G, this is the world’s first 144Hz IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide gaming monitor, combining what the manufacturer is calling ‘a blindingly fast refresh rate’ with ‘advanced one millisecond’ motion blur reduction.
The monitor reportedly boasts seamless image transitions without annoying afterimages, while the IPS display delivers accurate colour expression from any angle without distortion.
Features such as Black Stabilizer and Dynamic Action Sync should appeal to today’s gamers; Black Stabilizer provides extra clear contrast, allowing viewers to detect darker objects hidden in hard to see areas, while Dynamic Action Sync reduces input lag so that users can enjoy fast-paced gameplay without any delays. What’s more, the inclusion of AMD FreeSync offers smooth gameplay without any stuttering or screen tearing – ideal for fans of FPS, RTS or MMORPG.
“With tablets and smartphones at their disposal, consumers today don’t feel shackled to their desks anymore so it’s more important than ever that their monitors offer additional user benefits and conveniences,” says Brian Kwon, president of LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG is the number one brand in the 21:9 monitor space because we were first to recognize that consumers are adopting a new way of working and playing that put them ahead of the competition whether that’s working or playing.”
Visitors to the LG booth at IFA 2016 will be able to see LG’s new 21:9 UltraWide monitors from September 2-7.
