LG TO INTRODUCE ITS FIRST 21:9 GAMING MONITOR WITH AMD FREESYNC AT CES 2015
SYDNEY, 31 December, 2014—LG Electronics (LG) will globally showcase its new 21:9 UltraWide monitor lineup at the 2015 International CES® in Las Vegas from January 6-9, highlighted by the world’s first UltraWide monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology for fluid motion during fast gameplay. Based on IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, LG is the world sales leader in this monitor segment, over the last seven fiscal quarters (as of Q3 2014) with a market share of 77.3 percent of the world’s 21:9 monitors.
21:9 UltraWide Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync Technology
LG 34UM67 is the company’s first 21:9 UltraWide Gaming Monitor specifically developed for graphics-intensive gaming. AMD’s FreeSync technology eliminates the screen tearing that occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. FreeSync technology provides a smoother gaming experience, generating fluid motion and minimising motion blur.
“AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years,” said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD. “We are pleased that LG Electronics stands with us with truly exciting AMD FreeSync-ready displays like the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor.”
The monitor’s Black Stabilizer gives games visibility even in deep-dark scenes. The Dynamic Action Sync mode synchronises your senses with real-time scenes happening in a fast-paced game by minimising input lag. Popular games such as Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge currently support 21:9 resolution which on the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor, has exceptional Ultra-Wide field of view (FOV), allowing gamers to gain the upper hand by displaying the full scene. More games are expected to support 21:9 resolution in the future.
LG’s Curved 34-inch 21:9 Monitor with Extensive Screen
LG’s curved 34-inch UltraWide monitor (Model 34UC97) in Quad HD resolution (3440 x 1440) makes maximum use of screen real estate. It allows creative professionals such as graphic designers or photographers to look at more images as thumbnails and media creators to see longer video image sequences or graphical representations of sound. Mac users will find the monitor particularly appealing as it is compatible with Thunderbolt™ 2, capable of transfer speeds up to 20Gbps in a single logical channel. . The curved display further immerses users in their gaming experience.
Thanks to the 178-degree viewing angle of the In-Plane Switching (IPS) display which recreates colours across over 99 percent of the sRGBcolour space, there is no colour distortion at wide angles. The monitor’s colour accuracy, viewing angle and sRGBcolour space have been certified by TÜV Rheinland and Intertek and also validated by UL.
21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display for Enhanced Productivity
The 21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display (Model 34UC87M) provides various multiple-display set-up options, raising productivity levels for stock traders and other financial professionals who need to keep track of large amounts of data simultaneously. This monitor can be used as a trading workstation or a large dashboard to display charts, quotes or pending orders on each screen, allowing the user to explore a wider range of opportunities.
Digital Cinema 4K Monitor for Superb Colour Management
LG will also showcase the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (Model 31MU97) featuring 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), with more pixels than normal Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160). Not only does it show 4K content as they were meant to be seen with native resolution, it is also well suited for handling Digital Intermediate (DI) processes. With over 99.5 percent Adobe Colour Space, it is the ideal monitor for accurate colour management.
“LG’s premium 21:9 UltraWide monitors are designed with the unique needs of consumers in mind,” said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “The industry has come a long way from the days when one display design was thought to be suitable for all users. With the amount of time we spend in front of monitors, there’s a lot of room for specialised monitors in our lives.
Visitors are encouraged to stop by LG’s booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Jan. 6-9 to see LG’s innovative monitor lineup up close and personal.
Pricing and availability of featured models are yet to be determined for Australia.
