For 2014, LG Electronics plans to introduced six IPS 21:9 UltraWide monitors in sizes between 25 and 34-inches. The top-of-the line UM95 series will be available in 29-inch or 34-inch screen sizes offering QHD resolution (3440 x 1440), along with a real 4K (4096 x 2160) 31-inch model. The UM95 offers a superior screen for 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.
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.
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.
