LG introduces new IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor lineup
LG Electronics (LG) have announced the addition of three new products to its existing IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitor lineup.Launched initially at 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), LG broke new ground with the launch of its 34-inch IPS 21:9 UltraWide (Model UM95) monitor that will offer stunning image clarity thanks to an UltraWide QHD resolution (3440 x 1440) display.
“The LG IPS 21:9 Ultrawide series was originally developed as user-centric PC monitors to enhance the computing experience, for both work and play,” said Mr. D.Y. Kim, President of LG Electronics, Gulf FZE.
“Powerful work and entertainment solutions, our cinematically proportioned displays boast superb productivity-enhancing features and incredible IPS picture quality. LG will continue to develop new products that challenge preconceptions and offer new and exciting possibilities.”
In addition to the UM95, LG unveiled Model UM65 (available in 25, 29 and 34inch display sizes) and model UB65 feature ergonomic designs ideal for the workplace environment. The company’s newest monitors boast a long list of impressive features that make entertainment more immersive, multitasking easier than ever and work more productive. LG’s exceptional IPS monitors have earned a reputation for providing superior picture quality with excellent color accuracy, motion clarity and off-axis viewing.
Designed for Speed
Designed to deliver an unparalleled home entertainment experience, the UM95 supports a variety of advanced connectivity options, including Thunderbolt™ 2. Thunderbolt 2 is a revolutionary connectivity technology that simultaneously supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices through a single, compact port. With Thunderbolt 2 technology, users can take advantage of transfer speeds up to 20Gbps, enabling viewing and editing of original 4K video, while backing up the same file simultaneously. Higher-resolution and multi-monitor viewing is also possible with DisplayPort 1.2 support. Thunderbolt 2 uses the same cables and connectors and works with existing Thunderbolt PCs and devices. Multiple UM95 monitors can also be daisy-chained together and linked with servers and other hardware.
Designed for Work and Play
The UM95 offers a superior screen that is sure to please gaming enthusiasts, film buffs and graphics professionals alike. In addition to Thunderbolt 2 support, the monitor also comes with True Color Finder calibration software to ensure optimal color expression. The UM95 is also capable of reproducing 99 percent of the sRGB color palette. In terms of design, LG’s UM95 incorporates a sleek metallic finish and the transparent Crystal Float stand, which makes the screen appear to float in darkened rooms.
Slightly leaner and more economical, the UM65 series delivers useful multitasking functions with the same great LG picture quality. With three different screen sizes, consumers can choose the right monitor for their particular needs. The stylish 34-inch version embraces the Crystal Float concept of its premium UM95 cousin. LG’s 29-inch UB65 is geared towards workplace productivity with easy screen-height adjustment that allows the user to enjoy optimal viewing comfort and a display that pivots 90 degrees, a useful feature for editors and graphics designers.
Well suited to the needs of the modern professional, LG’s IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitors offer effective multitasking functions such as the 4-Screen Split and Dual Link-up. Gamers and movie enthusiasts will benefit from the wide aspect ratio as it delivers a more immersive viewing experience. The entire IPS 21:9 UltraWide series is Mac compatible and supports HDMI and DisplayPort, enabling users to mirror and transmit content from a wide range of devices.
