LG 4K Monitor with Thunderbolt 2
LG is bringing out a new 31-inch 4K monitor at CES 2014, dubbed “Real 4K” (31MU95). It features a DCI 4K IPS panel at 4,096 x 2,160 resolution in 19:10 ratio, a few pixels more than 4K Ultra HD (See: 4K vs. 4K Ultra HD). The new monitor also features a Thunderbolt 2 port with 20 Gbps data bandwidth, suitable for displaying 4K footage filmed with RED Epic and Scarlet cameras. LG says the Thunderbolt 2 port will allow you to view and archive 4K footage at the same time — which is perfect for on-set production, post-production, or other creative tasks.
LG will also unveil the 34-inch and 29-inch UM95 monitors, featuring 3,440 x 1,440 resolution at 21:9 ratio, boasting 99-percent of the sRGB gamut using LG True Color calibration software. LG has not yet released pricing information on the monitors, but we’ll find out more when we attend CES 2014 next month.
