LG Unveils Nano IPS Monitor Screen To Be Introduced on CES 2018

At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, LG will introduce upgraded models of its popular monitor lineup with Nano IPS technology that take color reproduction capabilities to a new level.

Unlike the Ultrafine 5K monitor which is 5120×2880, the extra pixels here over a 4K monitor are all horizontal, so it's still only 2160 pixels high, but you do get the 5120-pixel width that make the most difference for a lot of applications. Where QLED uses quantum dots to emit accurate light, Nano IPS uses nanometer size particles to absorb excess light, providing a clearer image and it is able to display 98% of the DCI-P3 colour spectrum.

LG says that both panels will also support "HDR 600", but it's not clear if the company is referring to VESA's DisplayHDR 600 spec or its own thing. LG model 32UK950 features the first Thunderbolt 3 docking display to support 4K daisy chaining, allowing a set-up of dual 4K monitors. The star of the bunch is likely the 34WK95U, a 34-inch ultrawide monitor with a (roughly) 21:9 aspect ratio and a 5K resolution. It boasts LG's signature Edge-ArcLine Stand and a 4-Side Edge Borderless Design for a better overall viewing experience. Now, it's time that they expand the reach of this technology, and thus, the company has made a decision to give a touch of Nano-IPS to its wide range of monitors as well.

LG is going to showcase many new products at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 next month. This LG monitor can connect to Thunderbolt 3 notebooks like Macbook Pro via a single active Thunderbolt 3 cable - no charging adapter or unsightly USB cables required.

Both screens rely Thunderbolt 3 technology, meaning they use the one simple port for their connection (outside of the power plug, of course), and it's the same plug used on most new computers including both Mac and Windows.

The second monitor that CES 2018 visitors will see is the 34-inch UltraWide 5K monitor - 34WK95U.

According to Alessi, the company aims to stand true to its commitment of delivering the best possible resolution and user experience across any workspace. Pricing and availability information has not yet been revealed.
