Watch: LG’s 34-Inch 21:9 34UC97 Curved Monitor Provides More Pixel Power without Color Shift (Sponsored Post)
The following is a sponsored editorial post from LG.
For editors looking to limit the number of screens they’re looking at, LG’s 21:9 ratio 34UC97 monitor is an exciting new option. At 34 inches wide with QHD resolution of 3440×1440, the 34UC97 provides 2.4 times more pixel power than a 16:9 monitor with full HD resolution. Editors worried about the color shift that can occur on the edges of ultrawide monitors won’t have that problem with the 34UC97, whose IPS panel is specifically designed to prevent color inconsistencies at the corners caused by VA monitors. That means you don’t have to trade in color fidelity for width; now you can have both. The 34UC97’s sRGB is set to over 99%, allowing for color preservation nearly equal to camera output.
The center back of the monitor has a multiport including two ThunderboltTM2 ports, two HDMI ports, two USB 3.0 ports and a Displayport to boot, allowing one centralized input for all the interfacing devices involved, which means no more tangled webs of crisscrossed cables. Mac users get extra functionality: any computer upgraded to the latest OS can connect directly to the monitor. With software provided on an accompanying CD, computers can access QHD resolution and the 34UC97’s four-screen split function. The ThunderboltTM slots allow any Mac device to be connected directly to the monitor, with data transfer speeds enabled of up to 20Gbps, or four times that of USB 3.0.
