LG brings new meaning to PC entertainment

LG launches full HD 22.5" PC monitor in the UK

Berkshire, UK, 28th October, 2008
- LG Electronics, a global leader in consumer electronics, today announces the launch of its most superior home entertainment monitor in the UK. With a combination of full High Definition (HD) functionality and a 30,000:1 Digital Contrast Ratio (DFC), the W2261V is the perfect option for film and gaming fans.
"The credit crunch is taking full effect on consumer spending and people are choosing to stay at home rather than go out," says Fiona Landsberg, IT marketing manager, LG Electronics. "With more people opting to watch the latest films and play their favourite games from the comfort of their homes, the W2261V offers users the second best thing to a cinema viewing experience with its full HD capability and high DFC."


The W2261V is ideal for users looking for a monitor with sophisticated technology and an elegant design. It is equipped with a high 1920 x 1080 resolution to enhance image clarity and a 2ms response time (grey to grey) that removes virtually all traces of ghosting, blurring or tearing - ideal for action-packed films and games. With its slim and sleek design, glossy black curved frame, dropping dew shaped power button and transparent colour bar it will look great in any room.

The W2261V offers quick and easy viewer control, with only one click of a button. The 4:3 inch wide aspect ratio function allows users to nullify the distortion often caused by viewing a 4:3 image on a widescreen monitor. It also has a photo effect function which provides users with an easy alternative for manipulating video or picture files, such as video cutting and colour effects.

Powered by LG's picture enhancing chipset, F-Engine, it offers users enhanced image definition and colour reproduction. When set to Movie Mode, a pre-configured setting of the F-Engine, the contrast ratio is maxed to 30,000:1, creating life-like images.

Key specifications of the W2261V monitor:
-    DFC ratio: 30,000:1
-    2ms response time (grey-to-grey)
-    High resolution: 1920 x 1080
-    D-sub, DVI-D and HDMI input
-    300 nits brightness
