LG debuts new 4K Digital Cinema monitor
LG Electronics has announced the new 31MU97 4K monitor, which combines the hottest 4K resolution (4096 x 2160 pixels) with a 31-inch IPS display to create a new high-end monitor that meets all requirements of the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI). The new LG 31MU97 targets people who need and demand the sharpest possible images at work or at home.
Being a high-end model the LG 31MU97 comes with a number of advanced features. The device supports over 99.5 per cent of the Adobe RGB color space and provides users with various coloring options and modes in order to meet the needs of people who use it. The Dual Color Space mode allows the monitor to display two different color modes at once so that users can compare different perspectives of their work simultaneously. The 4K monitor also comes hardware calibration-ready with LG’s exclusive True Color Pro software and has several other unique features that include the opportunity to edit 4K content in the ideal resolution without image scaling. You can also edit footage with full color expression thanks to the DCI color standard that reproduces color realistically, covering 97 per cent of the DCI-P3 color space. In addition the LG 31MU97 offers an ergonomic pivot design that offers maximum convenience for displaying as much of the image on the screen as possible to minimize scrolling and dragging.
“LG’s Digital Cinema 4K Monitor presents the company with an excellent opportunity to solidify our leadership in the global professional monitor market,” said Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT business division at LG Electronics. “This monitor’s high-end features and functions make it the perfect solution for professionals who require a top-of-the-line monitor with all the technology currently available.”
The new LG 4K monitor will be on the market in the USA, South Korea, Germany, Australia and the UK this week; customers in the Netherlands, Spain, Poland and Japan will have to wait until November. The price of the monitor is unknown.
