LG Reveals New '5K Ultrawide' Monitor
Ahead of CES 2018, LG announces new monitors with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity.
Adding new options for pixel peepers and filmmakers in search of stellar color reproduction capabilities and HDR, LG is looking to snag a bigger piece of the high-res monitor market.
The 34WK95U is LG's first "5K ultrawide" monitor. The monitor has a 34" display touting 5K resolution images at 60Hz, Thunderbolt 3 for fast video, audio and data transfers, and Nano IPS technology, all in a sleek borderless design.
LG says the specs also include HDR600, which is the VESA standard covering brightness levels, black level, color gamut and bit depth. While HDR1000 is considered the higher-end of certified DisplayHDR levels, the mid-range HDR600 is capable of processing HDR10 video, uses true 8-bit drivers, and incorporates global and local dimming.
The resolution is 5120×2160 (21:9) with the extra pixels going horizontally, so while it’s still only 2160 pixels high, the added width should improve viewing experiences in editing and color grading software.
The 32UK950 is LG's 32" UHD 4K 16:9 monitor, and it shares similar specs with the 34" version. Those specs include 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, HDR600, Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, and Nano IPS technology. For gamers, LG will show off its latest QHD monitor – 34GK950G – during CES as well.
No price information yet, but that should be revealed shortly.
