On Wednesday, LG announced a new 34-inch Chromecast-enabled monitor with HDR10 support and USB-C connectivity. The display will be showcased at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2017.
The UHD 4K monitor is touted to offer “professional-grade picture quality and exceptionally vibrant colors”, perfect for gamers or creative professionals.
LG’s latest is equipped with an IPS panel and displays over 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space. With a new generation of HDR capable game consoles, LG says the 32UD99 is well-equipped to meet the increasing demands of players.
“To maintain our market leadership, LG engineers work tirelessly to incorporate emerging technologies and trends into our newest monitors,” said Brian Kwon, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company.
“From high-resolution displays compatible with HDR technology to UltraWide monitors optimized for multitasking and gaming, LG is committed to delivering the most innovative, premium monitors in the industry today.”
The 32UD99 features a borderless design and has a slim ArcLine stand, requiring only a single cable to stream images to a 4K display. The monitor also has built-in speakers with LG’s Rich Bass technology.
In a press release, LG announced that in the upcoming CES 2017 in Las Vegas, it will also launch a 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide Mobile+ Monitor (model 34UM79M), a 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide gaming monitor (model 34UC99) , besides UltraFine 5K and 4K displays.
The 34UM79M will allow users to multitask between the PC and mobile device using a single screen. It will be the world’s first Chromecast-enabled multimedia monitor allowing users to stream their favorite movies or music from mobile to the monitor.
