LG Launches Premium IPS Monitors for Professionals and Entertainment Enthusiasts

LG Electronics (LG) unveiled two new premium IPS moni-tors today at the IFA tradeshow in Berlin, the EA93 and EA83. The EA93 is designed to enjoy variety of entertainment and the EA83 is specifically crafted to handle graphics-intensive applications. The most noticeable feature on the EA93 is the cinematic screen, a 21:9 display – the same ratio used in real movie theaters –that works as a superb solu-tion for home entertainment and multitasking. The EA83 lets consumers take advantage of Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) resolution (2560x1440 pixels). WQHD offers ample screen real estate for power users looking to multitask and provides one of the widest color spaces available. The monitor accurately reproduces 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color palette, providing graphics experts with a superior level of imaging quality.

“Through continuous innovation of our IPS monitors, we are raising the user experience to a whole new level for home entertainment and graphic professional use,” said J.J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of the IT Business Unit at the LG Home Entertain-ment Company. “The EA93’s immersive 21:9 cinematic screen and the EA83’s advan-tages when it comes to advanced graphics applications make these newest monitors compelling additions to our premium IPS monitor line-up.”

Ideal Multimedia and Multitasking Solution
The 29-inch EA93 boasts 2560 x 1080 resolution, and since the aspect ratio is identical to that of a typical movie theater screen, contents are shown just the way they were in-tended. But it isn’t only the size of the screen that makes the monitor so adept with mul-timedia, the EA93 accurately captures 100 percent of the defined sRGB color space, and the monitor delivers 300nit brightness for higher quality, more lifelike colors. Put sim-ply, IPS technology plus a cinematic screen is the ideal combination for entertainment.

The extra-wide screen is also useful in work situations, helping to improve productivity. The 4-Screen Split feature can divide the display into four segments, transforming the monitor into an advanced multitasking tool. The additional Dual Link-up function al-lows two devices to connect to the monitor simultaneously. Sharing files from two de-vices at the same time - a PC and a smartphone - has never been easier.

Graphics Powerhouse
The EA83 was designed to be a comprehensive monitor solution for filmmakers, pho-tographers, designers, and other graphics experts by providing a combination of supe-rior resolution and lifelike colors. The WQHD (2560x1440 pixel) high resolution IPS monitor provides vivid picture quality while featuring one of the widest color spaces in its category. Expressing colors not available within sRGB, the EA83 is able to display 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and gives graphics professionals the exact colors they’re looking for. LG’s innovative IPS monitor is capable of producing images that are practically identical to their real-life counterparts. The EA83 ships with soft-ware and hardware color calibrators, enabling graphics professionals to ensure that the screen always displays the most accurate and natural colors.

Visitors to IFA will be able to experience both the EA93 and EA83 IPS monitors first-hand at the LG Electronics stand in Hall 11.2 of Messe Berlin.

They should make it easier for everyone by cutting out the math and just go with a 2:1 display

The monitor looks pretty neat, I'm looking for an upgrade and might consider this if the price tag doesnt have a zero too many

Probably because they know we aren't going to like the prices.

The good news is that more makes are producing monitors at this resolution, so eventually the prices will come down. Well, hopefully anyway.

Phillips is selling the 50PFL7956K TV with an 21:9 aspect (2560x1080) for quite a while now (50 inch, but there is also a 58 inch version) and you can grab one online for 1k €... Not that uncommon... :-)
