It appears like LG is preparing to unleash its latest line-up of flagship monitors.

LG has revealed a pair of new monitors that it will be showing off at CES 2018, both of which offer impressive color accuracy smarts thanks to new "Nano IPS" technology. LG says it "involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths". The technology improves the intensity and purity of on-screen color for a more vivid viewing experience, claims LG.

LG says the spec includes HDR600, which is a new VESA standard covering brightness levels, black level, color gamut and bit depth. That's stretching the definition of 5K, which is normally defined as 5120×2880, and the ultrawide panel doesn't have the same pixel density (11MP as opposed to 14.7MP).

As for other details, the LG 32UK950 offers Thunderbolt 3 connectivity and supports 4K daisy chaining, allowing for a pair of 4K monitors to be daisy-chained. Since it is an ultra-wide screen, naturally is ideal for those who multi-task (video editors, photographers, software developers) on several programs or softwares.

Alongside that large resolution it will have a Thunderbolt 3 port, slim bezels and a professional slant with lots of color grading options, as per ArsTechnica.




"Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month and yet it's one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired", said Chang Ik-hwan, head of LG's IT business division. Now, it's time that they expand the reach of this technology, and thus, the company has chose to give a touch of Nano-IPS to its wide range of monitors as well.

LG took its turn in the spotlight on Thursday, announcing a trio of new monitors that'll be showcased in full at the upcoming trade show.

We will hear and see more about the 34WK95U at CES 2018 in the first week of January.

According to Alessi, the company aims to stand true to its commitment of delivering the best possible resolution and user experience across any workspace.
