Immerse yourself in the game with LG’s full-HD gaming monitor

Play the latest games in true professional style with the LG W2363V

Berkshire, UK, 15 September, 2009 – LG today sets a new standard for gaming set-ups with the launch of its 23” full-HD widescreen PC monitor, the W2363V. Designed specifically for avid gamers, this new monitor offers outstanding performance to suit the latest action-packed games.

The W2363V includes a host of features including Thru Mode, Tru Light, HD surround sound and a 2ms response time to help fully immerse users in their favourite games:

Thru Mode

Using Thru Mode, a proprietary feature developed by LG, the W2363V removes image processing and has been specifically designed to boost response time and provide the fastest gaming experience available on a PC monitor.

Tru Light

The W2363V’s Tru Light feature adds to the atmosphere of gaming and watching films. Tru Light enables the monitor to react to sounds and produce an ambient light along the bottom of the display. Users can switch between four different modes to change the threshold of how the screen reacts to sound and the lighting can be set to operate in specific situations to increase tension, enhancing the viewing experience.

HD surround sound

Boasting HD surround sound technology, the W2363V offers users a dramatic and realistic gaming experience. SRS Trusurround HD has been incorporated to eliminate the volume spikes often found when playing games or watching films. Furthermore, the monitor optimises the bass performance and dialog clarity, enhancing sound definition and vocals.

The W2363V supports Picture-In-Picture (PIP) technology, enabling users to display two images simultaneously on the single screen. For example, users can use the PC at the same time as watching videos or gaming. Additional features to adjust the picture quality include an auto brightness control, which automatically optimises the level of brightness to reduce eyestrain, and noise reduction, which automatically removes video noise to provide the best possible images.

The W2363V also offers a comprehensive set of connectivity options to cater to a wide range of inputs. These include full-HD connectors for Blu-ray, DVDs and games consoles.

“2008 marked a record-breaking year for the gaming industry in terms of its growth in the UK. In line with this, the demand for high-spec gaming components is higher than ever and we are continually developing our monitor portfolio to meet gamers’ needs,” comments Warren Lewis, general manager, LG Business Solutions. “With LG’s exclusive Thru Mode technology and other high-spec features, the W2363V takes gaming to a new level of realism.”
