Two new monitors have been revealed.
LG has announced the latest additions to its monitor lineup. The HDR 32-inch Ultra HD 4K Monitor (32UD99) and 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide Mobile Monitor (34UM79M) will both be on display at CES 2017.
"As the availability of HDR (high dynamic range) content continues to expand across a wide range of categories, from movies to games, LG is leading the way in bringing this enhancement to desktop monitors," said to Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA. "The enhanced picture quality offered by HDR technology is instantly recognizable to even the most casual user, and manufacturers are already pushing this promising technology to its fullest potential. From high-resolution displays compatible with HDR technology, to UltraWide monitors optimized for multitasking and gaming, LG is committed to delivering the most state-of-the-art and premium monitors in the industry today."
The 32UD99 features a 32-inch In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel with a resolution of 3840 x 2160. In addition, the display includes high dynamic range support (HDR10 standard) and is capable of displaying over 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. A USB Type-C port is integrated as well, allowing users to stream images, charge a connected laptop, and execute data transfers simultaneously, all with a single cable. Likewise, the monitor includes built-in speakers with LG's Rich Bass technology.
Meanwhile, the 34UM79M features a 34-inch IPS panel with a 21:9 aspect ratio. In addition, the display is the world’s first Chromecast-enabled multimedia monitor, allowing users to stream movies, music, games, and more from a mobile device directly to the screen. Likewise, the monitor uses LG's Dual Controller Plus feature to enable users to control both a PC and a smartphone/tablet through a single keyboard and mouse. Finally, buyers can also use the LG Mobile+ Monitor app to control many of the display's settings -- such as input, volume, aspect ratio, PBP/PIP, etc. -- remotely.
