Colorists and video editors who are gun shy over Apple’s Pro Display XDR price tag may want to take a look at LG’s latest 31.5” UltraFine OLED Pro monitor (32EP950), which promises up to 99% color accuracy.
Not only does it have a wide color gamut and dynamic range, but the 4K UltraFine can independently control every single one of its 8 million pixels.
As reported by Engadget, the LG UltraFine OLED Pro monitor can dim each pixel individually with full-array local dimming, which provides an impressive 1,000,000 to 1 contrast ratio and 99% DCI-P3 and Adobe RGB color accuracy in its 3840x2160 real estate.
This kind of color rating is similar to what Apple can get with their retina display on the iPhone 12 Pro and iPad Pro.
Connection-wise, the monitor is driven by USB-C, HDMI, and DisplayPort connections. But there are also three extra USB-A ports and one USB-B port, plus a second DisplayPort for multiple monitors (though using Apple’s M1 computers will only give you a single monitor connection).
The UltraFine OLED Pro also has a built-in KVM switch, which will give users the ability to switch between multiple computers without having to rely on a finicky third-party solution to reroute the video signal or your keyboard and mouse inputs.
LG has no details on pricing or when the monitor will hit the market, but when it does, it’ll be a sure-fire option for creators.
