LG to Unveil 21:9 Curved MonitorAugust 18, 2014
LG Electronics' offerings at the upcoming IFA event in Berlin will include a new IPS 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor, model 34UC97, the company said.
The product is touted by LG as the world's first curved IPS screen with 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,” Hyoung-sei Park, head of the IT Business Division at LG Electronics’ Home Entertainment Company, said as part of the announcement.
“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.”
IFA is set to begin Sept. 5 in Berlin.
