LG Electronics (LG) will be unveiling its newest IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor (model 34UC97) and other compelling monitor offerings at IFA 2014 in Berlin, Germany. The world’s first monitor to incorporate a curved IPS screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio, the eye-catching 34-inch monitor provides remarkable picture quality and a range of convenient connectivity options. Also to be introduced at IFA 2014 will be the stunning Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (model 31MU97) and the feature-packed Gaming Monitor (model 24GM77), both combining superior performance with modern style and versatile functionality.

LG’s flagship IPS 21:9 Curved Ultra Wide Monitor is a complete monitor solution, equally suited to the needs of professional users and home entertainment enthusiasts with extra screen real estate so users can get more done in less time. 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 Digital Cinema 4K Monitor comes hardware calibration-ready and also features Dual Color Space and LG’s exclusive True Color Pro calibration software so you get what you see.

The New monitor will not have a slow connection either sporting the newest in 4K needs the Intel Thunderbolt 2 for 20 Gb/s data transfer so every pixel is just right a 1 ms. response time; four times faster than USB 3.0. OH and don’t forget the Response times are at a Lightning 144 Hz so all that video will never so a single flicker. At least not one that your brain can read.

The monitor also features MAXX AUDIO and 7 W stereo speaker system guaranteed to deliver peak audio performance across all frequencies. But for us we like our sound system separate and more bass. But still this new innovation of curved screen with ultra fast, ultra wide, ultra black and ultra resolution is great, but you will have probably hold an ultra fat wallet to afford one. But if you have a chance to upgrade to the ultimate in Ultra. LG is the Answer.

The Quad HD resolution display with 3440 x 1440 pixels gives digital photographers and filmmakers the level of detail and accuracy that their work demands. Compatible with both PCs and Macs, the LG 34UC97 monitor easily handles heavy graphics and videos with ease on either system and supports Thunderbolt 2 for high-speed data transfers – four times faster than USB 3.0 – and allows multiple devices to be daisy chained together. The monitor also features MAXX AUDIO and 7 W stereo speaker system guaranteed to deliver peak audio performance across all frequencies.

Hyoung-sei Park, the head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company was quoted speaking about this new innovation.

“Many people spend more time in front of computer monitors than they do in front of TV sets and yet the industry’s biggest monitor manufacturers don’t seem to innovate at the same pace as TV manufacturers. At LG, innovation in display technologies isn’t just limited to our market-leading TV products but are actively being implemented in our advanced PC monitors. And that’s why we’re particularly proud to be introducing at IFA the world’s first 21:9 Curved Ultra Wide monitor with a curved IPS display which delivers a wide 178-degree viewing angle for an immersive viewing experience.”

We completely agree with Mr. Park, As I write these words on my very own LG ultra wide 29″ display, I can say this is an exciting new generation in optical transfer of computer imagery and we truly look forward to the awesome new detail.

LG’s next generation advanced PC monitors will be on display at IFA 2014 in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin from September 5-10.
