CES 2017: LG To Unveil A New 4K HDR Monitor Equipped With A USB Type-C Port

The array of LG smartphones that will make a splash in the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has already been leaked. Now, it is the turn of LG’s monitors and they are getting headlined by an HDR-compatible 32-inch UHD 4K monitor.

In a press statement, the South Korean company claims that with the 32UD99 4K HDR monitor, it will effectively push the industry to the next level.

“The enhanced picture quality offered by HDR technology is instantly recognizable to even the most casual user and manufacturers are already pushing this promising technology to its fullest potential,” LG said. “With professional-grade picture quality and exceptionally vibrant colors, HDR compatible monitors will appeal to creative professionals, gamers, and anyone else that takes image quality seriously.”

LG 4K TV Specifications

It is important to note that this piece of hardware is not going to come with a curve display or some show-stopping innovation. The spotlight is on the quality of the display, which packs a whopping 3,840 x 2,160 pixel resolution.

It can support the HDR10 standard and boasts of enhanced brightness and wider range in color gamut. This will certainly seal the deal for video enthusiasts because it allows an increase in the display’s peak brightness, making it perfect for editing photos and videos.

HDR Screen For Gaming

The LG monitor’s screen itself is an IPS panel that is capable of over 95 percent DCI-P3 color space. Aside from video editors and graphic designers, that specification will also appeal to gamers especially those who now dabble in HDR gaming.

Through the proprietary True Color settings, the LG 32UD99 can purportedly deliver professional-grade picture quality, with color reproduction that LG said is unparalleled in the industry today.

USB Type-C

Finally, the LG 32UD99 will ship with the USB Type-C port. LG is primarily marketing it as a way to eliminate unsightly cables. However, its utility goes way beyond that. This USB technology is faster, transferring files by as much as 10 gigabits per second. It is also a very flexible port, capable of supporting a wide range of older or even non-USB technologies through the use of an adapter.

Aside from the 32UD99, LG will also unveil other monitors at CES and these include the UltraFine 5K and 4K displays as well as the LG’s 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide gaming monitor. This last hardware rocks the AMD FreeSync technology, the Motion Blur Reduction feature, Dynamic Action Sync, and Black Stabilizer, among others.

LG has not yet provided any pricing details for all the above monitors.
