LG Electronics today launched two new "UltraWide" 21:9 aspect ratio LED monitors in the U.S.
Models EA73 and LN450W, which will be on sale in late September, also
employ LG's In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology and 2560 x 1080 resolution
In addition to their
21:9 aspect ratio and 29-inch class screens (29.0 inches measured
diagonally), LG's new monitors come with software designed to help users
manage multiple windows and source devices.
LG's 4-Screen Split feature allows users to divide the screen into four
sections at eight different screen ratios, so users can prioritize windows
by size and location instead of having to manually resize and position each
window individually. A few simple mouse clicks enable the user to arrange
windows into a variety of useful configurations. A connectivity feature
called Dual-Link Up allows the monitor to connect to two source devices
(e.g. smartphones, PCs, cameras, Blu-ray players or gaming systems) and
display each on a single screen simultaneously.
The IPS 21:9 UltraWide series is Mac compatible and supports Mobile
High-Definition Link (MHL), HDMI and DisplayPort. Graphic designers also
should find the monitor's 99 percent sRGB color space expression and
support for color calibration helpful.
The LN450W incorporates a digital TV tuner for broadcast reception as well
as cable or set-top box connectivity. Both models feature 7W speakers and
LG's thin-bezel CINEMA SCREEN Design.
The EA73 and LN450W will be on sale online and retailers at suggested
prices of $599.99 and $649.99, respectively.
