LG will unveil a curved IPS monitor with the 21:9 format at IFA 2014.

(Relaxnews) – The South Korean manufacturer is slated to unveil the world’s first curved, 21:9 format IPS monitor at IFA 2014, which takes place September 5-10 in Berlin. Determined to make a splash at the electronics trade show, LG is also presenting the first monitor dedicated to digital ultra-HD (4K) cinema, as well as a new high-performance LCD monitor for gamers.

The first multi-function, 21:9 format, curved IPS LCD monitor (reference 34UC97) will be among the stars of LG’s stand at IFA 2014. Its 34-inch screen has a resolution of 3440×1440 pixels, two Thunderbolt 2 connections (for data transfer at record speeds) and a 7W Maxx Audio speaker system.

For its part, the 31MU97 is designed specifically for optimal viewing of digital 4K video. With a 31-inch diagonal, the monitor has a native resolution of 4096×2160 pixels, or four times the total pixel count of a Full HD monitor of the same size. Geared primarily to professionals, the monitor is marketed as the ideal solution for viewing and editing 4K video.

Finally, gamers will appreciate the 24GM77, a new monitor built specifically to handle the rapid action of online games. The 24-inch screen has a refresh rate of 144Hz for fluid, flicker-free animated scenes, and the LG Dynamic Action Sync (DAS) feature promises to eliminate the lag time between console input and the resulting action on the screen. And as if that wasn’t enough, there are three customizable gaming modes that can be selected easily using a button on the front of the device.

Details on pricing and availability for these three new monitors are expected to be announced at IFA 2014.
