The press release below is a press release issued by LG Electronics Inc. during the IFA Berlin 2014 Consumer Electronics Fair. Please be advised that the availability of products and features shown at IFA are yet to be determined for Australia.
SEOUL, Aug. 18, 2014 — LG Electronics (LG) will be unveiling its newest IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor (model 34UC97) and other compelling monitor offerings at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany. As LG’s first monitor to incorporate a curved IPS screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio, the eye-catching 34-inch monitor provides remarkable picture quality and a range of convenient connectivity options. Also to be introduced at IFA 2014 will be the stunning Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (model 31MU97) and the feature-packed Gaming Monitor (model 24GM77), both combining performance with modern style and versatile functionality.
LG’s flagship IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor is a complete monitor solution, equally suited to the needs of professional users and home entertainment enthusiasts with extra screen real estate so users can get more done in less time. By adding a gentle curve to a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, LG has created a product that delivers an immersive experience. The Quad HD resolution display with 3440 x 1440 pixels helps to give digital photographers and filmmakers a level of accuracy that their work demands. Compatible with both PCs and Macs, the LG 34UC97 monitor can handle heavy graphics and videos on either system and supports Thunderbolt™ 2 for high-speed data transfers — four times faster than USB 3.0 — and allows multiple devices to be daisy chained together. The monitor also features MAXX AUDIO® and 7W stereo speaker system to deliver audio performance across most frequencies.
In addition to LG’s 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor, LG will be unveiling its Digital Cinema 4K Monitor for the first time at this year’s IFA. LG’s Digital Cinema 4K Monitor squeezes 4096 x 2160 pixels into a 31-inch screen, for resolution equivalent to four Full HD monitors. The 31MU97 model allows professionals such as movie editors to view content the way it was meant to be seen. The Digital Cinema 4K Monitor employs an LG IPS 4K display that provides sharp images with a wide viewing angle.
Gamers will especially appreciate LG’s 24GM77 new Gaming Monitor which is designed to handle the fast-paced action of the latest first person shooters (FPS). A refresh rate of 144Hz will help action scenes to appear smoother and with less flicker, while LG’s Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) Mode drastically cuts input lag, enabling the player to respond faster to what’s happening on the screen. Other notable features include Black Stabilizer for consistent blacks across different scenes and Game Mode, which offers three settings that can be applied quickly by pressing a hotkey on the monitor, with the option to create customized presets.
“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 are 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.”
LG’s next generation advanced PC monitors will be on display at IFA 2014 in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10.
