LG today announced two 29-inch 21:9 aspect ratio LED monitors, both of which offer advanced In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology and 2560×1080* resolution capability. The UltraWide monitors include models EA73 (pictured top) and LN450W (pictured below). They are essentially the same, but the latter offers a digital TV tuner for broadcast reception as well as cable or set-top box connectivity. Both models feature 7W speakers and LG’s immersive, thin-bezel CINEMA SCREEN Design
LG’s 4-Screen Split feature allows users to divide the screen into four sections at eight different screen ratios, so 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 quickly arrange windows into a variety of useful configurations, perfect for the student or professional who needs to jump from program to program. 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.
The IPS 21:9 UltraWide series is Mac compatible and supports Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), HDMI and DisplayPort, transforming PCs into powerful entertainment hubs capable of mirroring and transmitting content from a wide range of devices. Graphic designers also should find the monitor’s 99 percent sRGB color space expression and support for color calibration helpful. Coupled with these features is IPS technology to help ensure the most accurate color reproduction of source materials.

The LG EA73 and LN450W UltraWide LED Monitors will be on sale late September 2013 online and retailers at suggested prices of $599.99 and $649.99, respectively. For more information please visit www.lg.com/us/monitors.
