LG Launches the Curved UltraWide Monitor Along with a 4K Monitor in India
Gamers, graphic artists, CAD designers and even humble home entertainment enthusiasts who regularly spread their onscreen activities across multiple displays were super impressed by LG’s flagship IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor when it launched back in IFA 2014.
Now, the company has announced that it will introduce this impressive Curved UltraWide Monitor along with other compelling monitors in the Indian market. In essence, LG’s curved QHD monitor, the UC97 bridges the two worlds of widescreen monitors and curved TVs together. This monitor is targeted at power users who need, not just a great viewing experience but also the extra room to place their windows, particularly those in the creative business.
With Quad HD resolution display at 3440 x 1440 pixels, this 34-inch monitor packs quite a punch and is considered the world’s first curved monitor with an extra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. For connectivity, it utilizes Thunderbolt 2 connectors not just for fast data transfers but also for the ability to daisy chain other devices. It also comes with its own 7W stereo speakers boasting the Maxx Audio tech.
LG will also introduce the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor—also known as the 31MU97—which has a 31-inch screen and 4096 x 2160p resolution. It can reproduce 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and includes calibration software. LG claims that MU97 Digital Cinema 4K monitor owners can look forward to ultra-sharp images with wide viewing angles, and those using it for work will appreciate its ability to reproduce 99 percent of Adobe’s RGB color space.
Gamers are the important prospective customers of the high-end monitors and LG has made sure they are not left in the dark. LG is also announced the GM77 24-inch monitor with 144 Hz refresh rate for smooth, flicker-free onscreen action. The gaming monitor also benefits from a feature to render consistent blacks across different scenes, and a mode to cut down motion blur. Game Mode also offers players the chance to switch between three optimized settings with the push of a hotkey on the monitor.
The Curved UltraWide Monitor is expected to be priced around Rs. 85,000 and the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor around Rs. 90,000, meanwhile there is no word on the price of GM77 Gaming Monitor. According the company, you will be able to buy their extreme monitors by the end of this month.
