LG 21:9 FreeSync Monitors at CES

 

LG Electronics (LG) today announced plans to introduce the world's first 21:9 "UltraWide" gaming monitor compatible with AMD FreeSync technology for fluid motion during fast gameplay.

The new monitor headlines LG's expanded lineup being unveiled next week at the 2015 International CES and further solidifies the company's leadership in the growing 21:9 segment, which caters to the digital imaging, business professional and gaming markets. Based on IDC's Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, LG is the world sales leader in this monitor segment over the last seven fiscal quarters (as of the third quarter of 2014) with a market share of 77.3 percent of the world's 21:9 monitors.

21:9 UltraWide Gaming Monitor with AMD FreeSync Technology

LG's UltraWide Gaming Monitor (34UM67) is the company's first 21:9 monitor specifically developed for graphics-intensive gaming. AMD's FreeSync technology eliminates the screen tearing that occurs when the monitor and graphics card are out of sync. Furthermore FreeSync technology guarantees the smoothest and most seamless gaming experience, generating fluid motion without any loss of frame rate.

"AMD FreeSync technology is an innovative monitor technology, based on free and open industry standards, to eliminate the tearing and stuttering that has plagued PC gaming for 30 years," said Roy Taylor, corporate vice president of ISV/IHV Partner Group, AMD. "We are pleased that LG Electronics stands with us with truly exciting AMD FreeSync-ready displays like the LG UltraWide Gaming Monitor."

The 34UM67 also has an exceptional UltraWide field of view (FOV), allowing gamers to gain the upper hand by revealing hidden spaces that were invisible on regular 16:9 monitors. The monitor's Black Stabilizer illuminates dark scenes and helps to clearly define the deep black areas where objects and enemies could be hidden. The Dynamic Action Sync mode minimizes input lag, enhancing users' real time gaming experience. Many popular games such as Battlefield 4, World of Warcraft and ArcheAge currently support 21:9 resolution with more games expected to support this resolution in the future.



World's First Curved 34-inch 21:9 Monitor with Extensive Screen

LG's curved 34-inch UltraWide monitor (34UC97) in Quad HD resolution (3440 x 1440) makes maximum use of its wide screen real estate. It allows creative professionals, such as graphic designers or photographers, to look at more images as thumbnails and media creators to see longer video image sequences or graphical representations of sound. The monitor is compatible with Thunderbolt 2, which allows for Mac users to take advantage of its high-speed bulk data transfers. And for gamers, the curved display provides a more immersive experience.

The monitor's 178-degree viewing angle of the In-Plane Switching (IPS) display recreates colors across over 99 percent of the sRGB color space, so there is no color distortion at any angle. The monitor's color accuracy, viewing angle and sRGB color space have been certified by TUV Rheinland and Intertek and also validated by UL.

21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display for Enhanced Productivity

The 21:9 Curved UltraWide Multi-Display (34UC87M) provides various multiple-display set-up options, raising productivity levels for financial professionals, such as stock traders who need to keep track of large amounts of data simultaneously. This monitor can be used as a trading workstation or a large dashboard to display charts, quotes or pending orders on each screen, allowing the user to explore a wider range of opportunities.



Digital Cinema 4K Monitor for Superb Color Management

LG will also showcase the Digital Cinema 4K Monitor (Model 31MU97) featuring 4K resolution (4096 x 2160), with more pixels than standard Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160). The 31MU97 shows 4K content as it was meant to be seen with native resolution and it is also well suited for handling Digital Intermediate (DI) processes. With over 99.5 percent Adobe Color Space, it is the ideal monitor for accurate color management.



"LG's premium 21:9 UltraWide monitors are designed with the unique needs of consumers in mind," said In-kyu Lee, senior vice president and head of the TV and monitor division at the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. "The industry has come a long way from the days when one display design was thought to be suitable for all users. With the amount of time we spend in front of monitors, these products are no longer one size fits all."



Visitors are encouraged to stop by LG's booth at CES 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Jan. 6-9 to see LG's innovative monitor lineup in person.

only if they had more modest 1080p monitors with free sync at the show if they have these curved 4k monitors i really think they will be a huge price

i would find it very ironic if the first batch of free sync was on premium price monitors firstQuote
