At CES 2018, LG Electronics will unveil upgraded models of its monitor lineup that it said will provide a much better color experience than any monitor its produced before. The new monitors will include Nano IPS technology, which LG said takes “color reproduction capabilities to a new level.” Other improvements—based on customer feedback—include support for HDR600 with higher dynamic range of peak brightness, and new connectivity options with full Thunderbolt 3 compatibility.
“Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month and yet it’s one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired,” Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT business division, said in a statement. “With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace.”
In its statement, LG called out two specific new monitors that will make their debut at CES 2018: the 32-inch UHD 4K monitor (32UK950) and its 34-inch UltraWide 5K monitor (34WK95U).
Both will ship with all of the aforementioned upgrades, including Nano IPS, HDR support, and Thunderbolt 3 compatibility, LG said. Further explaining Nano IPS, LG said the technology works by using nanometer-sized particles on the screen’s LED to absorb excess light wavelengths, which “greatly enhances” the intensity and purity of on-screen colors. LG said it provides a more life-like and accurate viewing experience.
The 34-inch UltraWide monitor includes the same upgrades, but LG packs it into a gorgeous 21:9, 5K resolution screen—the first such monitor developed by LG. This model is geared towards the multitasking consumer (or professional) who need the extra screen real estate for applications like video editing, photograph editing, and software and app developers. Gamers, as well, would appreciate the wider viewing angle that essentially wraps swallows them into the in-game experience.
LG did also mention a new QHD gaming monitor that would be on display (34GK950G), but shared little details about the product. All of these, and plenty more from LG, will be on display at their CES 2018 booth (#11100) in the Central Hall at the LVCC.
