LG to present curved monitor at IFA 2014
The Korean tech company LG will present the world’s first curved ultra-wide PC monitor at the upcoming IFA 2014 event next month. The device is called LG 34UC97 and will come with a very large 34-inch display that works at 3440 x 1440 pixels. Apart from this display the LG 34UC97 will also support Thunderbolt and will have Maxx Audio and a 7W speaker system plus a 21:9 aspect ratio.
“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,” said Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company. “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 UltraWide monitor with a curved IPS display which delivers a wide 178-degree viewing angle for an immersive viewing experience.”
LG will present a few more monitors at IFA 2014. A particular device is the upcoming new Digital Cinema 4K monitor, which will have a large 31-inch display and a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels. There’s also a new gaming monitor in the pipeline.
Pricing is unknown but the new models will not be cheap for sure.
