LG Announces New 4K and 5K Monitors with Nano IPS Technology & DisplayHDR 600

At CES 2018 in Las Vegas, LG will introduce upgraded models of its popular monitor lineup with Nano IPS technology that take color reproduction capabilities to a new level. In response to customer feedback, LG added support for HDR600 with even higher dynamic range of peak brightness and new connectivity options with full Thunderbolt 3 compatibility.

LG's new 32-inch UHD 4K monitor (model 32UK950) is the first to offer LG's advanced Nano IPS technology. Nano IPS technology involves the application of nanometer-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. This greatly enhances the intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience. This LG monitor can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, comparable to monitors used to master Hollywood blockbusters. Ideal for media prosumers seeking superb color reproduction with its support for HDR 600 LG 32UK950 users will experience high dynamic range of peak brightness of 600 candela (cd/㎡).
LG model 32UK950 features the first Thunderbolt 3 docking display to support 4K daisy chaining, allowing a set-up of dual 4K monitors. This LG monitor can connect to Thunderbolt 3 notebooks like Macbook Pro via a single active Thunderbolt 3 cable - no charging adapter or unsightly USB cables required. This monitor's single Thunderbolt 3 cable transmits 4K content and sound while providing enough charge to power a 60W notebook, simplifying any work space. With its beautiful signature Edge-ArcLine Stand and stunning 4-Side Edge Borderless Design where the picture literally drops off the edge, there is no mistaking this LG monitor for anything else.

Expected to be another hot item at this year's CES, LG's 34-inch UltraWide monitor (model 34WK95U) delivers a broad range of accurate colors and viewing angles at a surreal 5K resolution (5120 x 2160 pixels). LG's very first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor is loaded to the maximum with a hefty amount of screen real estate and eye-popping colors. This ultimate 5K viewing experience is geared towards users who multitask extensively, such as video editors, photographers and software and app developers.

Model 34WK95U supports Nano IPS technology, fantastic color reproduction capabilities and HDR600. In addition, model 34WK95U features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable. The Thunderbolt 3 interface is ideal for power laptop users who desire fast video, audio and data transfers without the need for a separate AC adapter. With its elegant, stunning profile, this LG monitor turns heads even when powered off, with its 4-Side Edge Borderless Design and gorgeous slim Edge-ArcLine Stand addition to its refined image.

"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. "With these latest premium monitors from LG, we wanted to communicate that LG is absolutely committed to delivering the best possible screen resolution and the best user experience on a desk or workspace."

Another attention grabber from LG will be LG's latest QHD gaming monitor (model 34GK950G), which offers premium picture quality with Nano IPS technology and high-speed G-Sync technology.

All this and more can be experienced personally at LG's booth (#11100) in Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center during CES 2018.

Interested to know if Nano IPS increases power consumption over conventional IPS, as with Quantum Dot power consumption has taken quite a bit of hit. also would much rather wait for Dell or some other makers to release a monitor using this LG panel over the overpriced c*** LG sells as "premium" monitors.

Yawn.... everyone can stick a different backlight behind existing panel tech. Which is precisely what this whole fake HDR nonsense is.

Low black points and high static contrast of 3000:1 or better are where its at, unless you like looking straight into digital sunlight.

Just keep in mind how monitors arrive out of the box, with Brightness settings at 100% - for most regular IPS that means 280-350cd/m. Now imagine 600. Yep.

So... I wonder.... These new HDR standards--how much like owning a "150x" CDROM from the late 90s is this going to be? Not much at all, I hope.

For comfortable viewing, you're supposed to set white at 120cd/sqm. Which is why I haven't looked at max brightness when buying a new monitor since forever.

And now back to the topic at hand, kudos to LG for coming up with a new marketing term (nano IPS) and providing such a great description of what it is and what it does. /s

If Nano IPS is anything like Nano Cell IPS tech used in their TVs, then there isn't much new other than the increased color space. Even their highest end IPS TV only gets around 1500:1 contrast ratio. Self-emissive QD-LED and microLED are still a ways off and OLED still has its usual issues as a computer monitor.
