Samsung Readies 144 Hz 3440 x 1440 Ultra-wide Monitors

Samsung is giving finishing touches to a new fleet of high-speed ultra-wide monitors. These monitors will be among the first to leverage DisplayPort 1.3, to serve up blazing fast 144 Hz refresh rates, on resolutions as high as 3440 x 1440 pixels. Samsung has plans of at least two monitors with these specs - a 30-inch, and a 35-inch display. The two will feature VA (vertical-alignment) panels. It's likely that the two could also feature adaptive-sync features, such as AMD FreeSync. The two could come out later this year.

TN-film Panel Based Ultra HD Monitors Could Sell for Cheap by Mid-2014

An NPD DisplaySearch boldly claiming that the industry will ship as many as 2 million Ultra HD (3840 x 2160-pixel) monitors by the end of 2014, is beginning to sound a little more plausible, with display makers pushing for "affordable" Ultra HD monitors in the 28-inch size segment, by mid-2014. By these, we're not referring to cheap, borderline gray market monitors from lesser known Korean manufacturers; but display majors from the same country, such as Samsung and LG. According to Hardware.info, which recently published a review of the Samsung LU28D590D, a 28-inch monitor based on a cheap TN-film panel by Chimei (CMO), that offers Ultra HD resolution; prices of the display could be as low as 600€ or £500, by mid-2014. So if you're planning to ditch the full HD (1920 x 1080) or WUXGA (1920 x 1200) monitor you've been holding on to for the past 5 or so years, wait just a little longer.

AU Optronics Working on Affordable Ultra HD Monitors

Display panel maker AU Optronics, which supplies LCD panels to major monitor and TV manufacturers, is reportedly working on bringing Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) panels into the mainstream, and promises "affordable" 27-inch and 32-inch monitors beaming those many pixels by Q1 or Q2, 2014. AU Optronics, or AUO as it's known in the industry, supplies LCD panels to a variety of monitor manufacturers, including ASUS, BenQ, Philips, and even Samsung (which also makes its own high-end panels). Among the two panels AUO is working on, one offers sRGB gamut with Adobe RGB gamut coverage; both will be able to reproduce 10-bit with dithering. Given that these panels will be intended for monitors, there will be two major requirements - at least 60 Hz of refresh rate, and as low response time as possible.

LG Introduces Two New 21:9 Monitors

It looks like LG doesn't see the new 21:9 "ultra-widescreen" aspect-ratio as something that caters to a niche, and is bent on making it the next mainstream resolution. The company rolled out its second and third 29-inch ultra-widescreen monitors, the 29EA73-P, and 29EB73-P; pictured in that order below. Both are 29-inchers, offering a native resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. Both feature a plethora of inputs, including dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, a pair of HDMI ports (including an MHL). Both offer USB 3.0 hubs, 7W stereo speakers, and audio out; but differ in design, and hence, dimensions. The 29EA73-P measures 699.7 x 387.0 x 197.2 mm, weighing 5.9 kg; while the 29EB73-P measures 699.7 x 395.3 x 225.0 mm, weighing 6.9 kg. While LG didn't announce pricing, the 29EB73-P is expected to be a tiny bit pricier among the two; while both could be cheaper than the 29EA93 series.

An ambient brightness sensor called Auto EcoView and a preset mode called Paper mode lower the monitors' brightness and color temperature respectively to reduce the blue light output which can cause eye fatigue.

IDC Lowers Forecast Growth for PC Monitors While Average Screen Size Increases

Continued decline in demand for PC desktops has led International Data Corporation (IDC) to lower its estimate of PC monitors shipped in the first quarter of 2013 (1Q13) to 33.8 million units, down from its previous forecast of 34.7 million units for the quarter. In the latest update of the Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, IDC also lowered its total shipment forecast for 2013 from 140.1 million units to 134.4 million units, which will represent a 9.9% year-on-year decline. By 2017, worldwide shipments are expected to drop further to 113.6 million units.

"The continued decline in PC desktops is bringing about changes in strategy and product focus in the PC monitor market," said Jennifer Song, Research Analyst at IDC. "With Windows 8 operating system, we expect to see more touch-based monitors although price points are a little high. Average screen size of the market is also expected to increase to 21.4" in 2017 from 20.4" in 2012."
