LG to launch curved 21:9 and 4K monitors
LG will tick off at least one “world first” at IFA 2014 in Berlin next month, the company having confirmed it will launch the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, alongside a new 4K screen and a gaming monitor designed to handle “fast-paced action”.
The LG 34UC97 is the curved IPS screen 21:9 display in question, a 34in monitor with a 3440 x 1440 resolution and a high-speed Thunderbolt 2 connection, it’s said to be aimed at digital photographers and film-makers. It also boasts a 178-degree viewing angle.
It will launch at IFA alongside the LG 31MU97 Digital Cinema 4K Monitor and the 24GM77 Gaming Monitor. The former squeezes 4096 x 2160 pixels in to a 31in screen, while the screen for gamers aims to major on smooth motion thanks to a 144Hz refresh rate. LG’s Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) mode also claims to cut input lag.
