LG today released the 34-inch Curved UltraWide UQHD Monitor (model 34UC97) in the U.S. for $1300. It is the world’s first monitor to incorporate a curved In-Plane Switching (IPS) screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio for immersive wide viewing angles. Its LED backlighting delivers deep black levels and rich colors offer amazing contrast and color detail, along with Ultra Quad High Definition (UQHD) picture quality (3440 x 1440 pixels) to make movies, games and sports come to life.
LG’s 34-inch (32.7-inches measured diagonally) class display is equally suited to the needs of professional users and home entertainment enthusiasts with extra screen real estate so users can replace dual monitor set-ups. It has True Color Finder color calibration software to ensures color accuracy for source material and supports Thunderbolt 2 for high-speed data transfers. It also allows multiple devices to be daisy chained together.
LG’s 4-Screen Split feature makes multitasking easy by dividing the screen into up to four sections at eight different screen ratios. Users can prioritize windows by size and location instead of having to manually resize and position each window individually. A few simple mouse clicks enable the user to arrange windows quickly into a variety of useful configurations, perfect for the professional who needs to view multiple programs at once. Adding even more versatility, a connectivity feature called Dual-Link Up allows the monitor to connect to two source devices (e.g., smartphones, PCs, cameras, Blu-ray players or gaming systems) and display each on a single screen simultaneously.
By adding a gentle curve to a 21:9 aspect ratio monitor, LG has created a unique product that delivers a more immersive experience. The monitor also features MAXXAUDIO and 7W stereo speaker system guaranteed to deliver peak audio performance across all frequencies.
