LG will have myriad new introductions out in Las Vegas next month, but one that seems to always catch our eye is its line of Ultra monitors, which include the UltraWide and UltraGear lines of computer monitors. Included in the new lineup is LG’s ridiculous 49-inch UltraWide monitor that it says is built to boost productivity, essentially the width of three standard monitors stacked side-by-side. Additionally, LG will have its now UltraGear Gaming Monitor, which is designed with picture quality and performance in mind to deliver a truly immersive experience for gamers.
“LG is consistently bringing advanced monitors to market, packed with features and functions specifically for different consumer segments,” Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT division of the Home Entertainment Company, said in a statement. “With a wide choice of models that prioritize productivity, picture quality and out-of-this-world gaming, more and more consumers are seeing LG as a innovation leader in monitors.”
Diving deeper into the 2019 UltraWide monitor, the 49-inch model features an insane 32:9 aspect ratio in a curved screen body. The pixel count of the 49-inch monitor stands at 5120x1440, or roughly the size of two 27-inch QHD monitors positioned side-by-side. And, in order to take advantage of that much screen real estate, the monitor features LG’s Picture-by-Picture mode, which allows the display to show content from multiple sources, essentially dividing the screen up into smaller, individually responsive and active displays—without the need for a multi-display setup. Adding to the tech flare of the monitor, LG integrated multiple USB-C ports for data transfer and device charging.
