A curved 21:9 Quad HD monitor and a 4K Digital Cinema monitor are among the company's latest innovations.
LG has announced two additions to its 4K monitor lineup. The new displays include the 34UC97 Ultra Wide monitor and the 31MU97 Digital Cinema 4K monitor.
"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."
The 34UC97 features a 34-inch IPS panel with a Quad HD resolution of 3440 x 1440. In addition, the display uses a curved screen design and a 21:9 aspect ratio. Likewise, Thunderbolt 2 support is included as well and MAXX AUDIO tech with a 7W stereo speaker system is also integrated. Meanwhile, the 31MU97 is a 31-inch display with a resolution of 4096 x 2160, meeting the Digital Cinema Initiative’s standard for 4K. The monitor comes hardware calibration-ready and features an IPS panel and support for 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color space.
Pricing and availability have not been announced yet, but the 34UC97 Curved UltraWide Monitor and the 31MU97 Digital Cinema 4K Monitor will both be on display at IFA in Berlin from September 5-10.
