LG Redefines The IPS Monitor Category In 2013

At CES 2013, LG to Unveil Premium, Stunning UltraWide, ColorPrime and Touch 10 Monitors Featuring Specialized Functionality, Stellar IPS Technology

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics (LG) is introducing its 2013 collection of IPS monitors, featuring new concepts such as UltraWide, ColorPrime and Touch 10, perfectly matched for entertainment, professional applications and touch-based interaction, respectively.

All three models, which will be unveiled at next week's 2013 International CES®, employ LG's advanced IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology to deliver exceptional picture quality and raise the bar for displays this year.

"LG has focused on blending highly specialized functions with stellar IPS technology. These three monitors will push boundaries and reshape people's expectations," said Il Geun Kwon, Senior Vice President and Head of the IT Business Unit at LG Electronics' home entertainment unit. "The UltraWide, ColorPrime and Touch 10 offer solutions for nearly every task imaginable, whether it's watching the latest blockbuster movie, performing graphic design tasks, or anything in between. With this diverse range of creative and highly advanced products, LG has definitely set the tone, and the pace, for 2013."

UltraWide Monitor: Multitasking and Multimedia Functionality
LG's EA93 UltraWide monitor boasts an incredible 21:9 aspect ratio. With a class screen size of 29 inches (29.0 inches diagonal), it offers an expansive display with outstanding multitasking and multimedia capabilities, making it ideal for watching movies. It is also equipped with LG's immersive, thin-bezel CINEMA SCREEN Design. The UltraWide monitor has been designed with productivity in mind, and is ideal for analyzing documents with ease, as its extra screen real estate means more spreadsheet columns are visible at any one time.

When superior multitasking is needed, the 4-Screen Split feature conveniently divides the UltraWide's screen into four sections. Instead of having to manually resize and position each open window, a few simple mouse clicks enable the user to quickly arrange programs into a variety of useful configurations. Adding even more versatility, the Dual-Link Up function can connect the monitor to two external devices (e.g. notebooks, smartphones, PCs, cameras or external hard drives) simultaneously. Graphic designers may also find the monitor's 100 percent sRGB color space expression and support for color calibration helpful. The monitor couples these excellent features with IPS technology to help ensure the most accurate color reproduction of source materials.

Touch 10 Monitor: Optimized for Windows 8 and Ten-finger Touch Control
The ET83 Touch 10 monitor's ten-point touch capability provides the optimal Windows 8 user experience. Conventional touch screens offer two-finger dragging, scrolling and pinching, whereas LG's 23-inch class (23.0 inches diagonal) Touch 10 monitor allows the user to use all ten fingers simultaneously. This translates into quicker and more natural typing when using the Windows 8 on-screen keyboard while offering a familiar experience, similar to that of a mobile device.

A truly innovative product, the Touch 10 opens new and creative possibilities for interacting with content. It works with musical applications featuring virtual pianos, synthesizers and string instruments. LG's unique monitor is also ideal for educational applications as its advanced touch functionality creates a fun and easy way for students to control the latest learning software. The vivid IPS display provides a wide horizontal viewing angle that is perfect for large groups to view the screen.

In addition, setting up the monitor is easy. Full touch interaction is available as soon as the monitor is connected, with no extra software installation required. A range of touch-friendly apps are currently available from the Windows Store, offering consumers a fun and entertaining experience.*

ColorPrime Monitor: Color Management Powerhouse
The EA83 ColorPrime is a comprehensive monitor solution for filmmakers, photographers and designers, providing a superior level of image and color expression. This exceptional monitor boasts a visually stunning Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). It also accurately reproduces a wide color palette that represents 100 percent of sRGB and 99 percent of the Adobe RGB. Simply put, the EA83 ColorPrime monitor is a graphics powerhouse.

To further enhance colors with the upmost accuracy, LG's ColorPrime offers a hardware calibrator as well as the advanced True Color Pro calibration software. The monitor can also be rotated up to 90 degrees, giving graphics professionals an alternative way to view and arrange their work.

IPS Technology: Vivid Color and Perfect Clarity
All these models employ LG's advanced In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels, to provide the best possible picture quality. LG's innovative IPS monitors have tripled in sales year-on-year, receiving numerous accolades and glowing reviews from top-tier publications around the world.

LG demonstrated the exceptional picture quality of its IPS panels in the So Real, It's Scary viral video released in October 2012. In the short clip, LG's IPS monitors convince unsuspecting elevator occupants that the floor is falling from beneath their feet. The stunt has received more than 15 million views on YouTube.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
