At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, LG will introduce upgraded models of its popular monitor lineup with Nano IPS technology that take colour reproduction capabilities to a new level according to an announcement made by the screen giants ahead of the world’s largest consumer tech show. In response to customer feedback, LG has also added support for HDR600 with even higher dynamic range of peak brightness and new connectivity options with full Thunderbolt 3 compatibility.
LG’s new 32-inch UHD 4K monitor (model 32UK950) is the first to offer LG’s advanced Nano IPS technology. Nano IPS technology involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen’s LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. This greatly enhances the intensity and purity of on-screen colours for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience. This LG monitor can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 colour spectrum, comparable to monitors used to master Hollywood blockbusters. Ideal for media prosumers seeking superb colour reproduction with its support for HDR 600 LG 32UK950 users will experience high dynamic range of peak brightness of 600 candela (cd/㎡).
LG model 32UK950 features the first Thunderbolt 3 display dock to support 4K daisy chaining, allowing a set-up of dual 4K monitors. This LG monitor can connect to Thunderbolt 3 notebooks like Macbook Pro via a single active Thunderbolt 3 cable – no charging adapter or unsightly USB cables required. This monitor’s single Thunderbolt 3 cable transmits 4K content and sound while providing enough charge to power a 60W notebook, simplifying any work space. With its beautiful signature Edge-ArcLine Stand and stunning 4-Side Edge Borderless Design where the picture literally drops off the edge, there is no mistaking this LG monitor for anything else.
Another piece of promising kit that we’re looking forward to seeing at this year’s CES, is LG’s 34-inch UltraWide monitor (model 34WK95U), which is said to deliver a broad range of accurate colours and viewing angles at a surreal 5K resolution (5120 x 2160 pixels). LG’s very first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor is loaded to the maximum with a hefty amount of screen real estate and “eye-popping colours”. LG promises this will offer the ultimate 5K viewing experience, geared towards users who multitask extensively, such as video editors, photographers, and software and app developers.
In a statement, an LG spokesperson said: “Model 34WK95U supports Nano IPS technology, fantastic colour reproduction capabilities and HDR600. In addition, model 34WK95U features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable.”
The Thunderbolt 3 interface should be ideal for power laptop users who desire fast video, audio and data transfers without the need for a separate AC adapter. With its elegant, stunning profile, this LG monitor is like to turn heads even when powered off, with its 4-Side Borderless screen design and gorgeous slim ArcLine stand addition to its refined image.
“Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month and yet it’s one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired,” said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division. “With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace.”
Another attention grabber from LG will be LG’s latest QHD gaming monitor (model 34GK950G), which offers premium picture quality with Nano IPS technology and high-speed G-Sync technology.
