    At CES® 2019 next month, LG Electronics (LG) will unveil its latest range of “Ultra” Monitors, including a 49-inch display for business professionals and a 38-inch display for gamers.

    Building on its reputation as a leading innovator in the UltraWide monitor category, the new 49-inch LG UltraWide Monitor (model 49WL95) is built to boost productivity whatever the task, while the latest LG UltraGear™ Gaming Monitor (model 38GL950G) combines superb picture quality with blazing speed to deliver the immersive experiences gamers demand.

    2019 LG UltraWide Monitor

    Helping users get more done in less time, LG’s latest UltraWide Monitor has a large, 32:9 aspect ratio screen that delivers exceptional picture quality. With its cinematic scale, the UltraWide Monitor is a convenient, high-quality solution that replaces the need for a multi-screen setup. The additional space supplied by its 49-inch display and incredible aspect ratio makes the LG UltraWide ideal for multitasking. Meanwhile, 5120 x 1440 resolution (double the pixel count of two 27-inch Quad High Definition screens combined) with 108 pixels per inch ensures documents are easier to read and digital files are easier to edit.

    While suitable for any type of work, the LG UltraWide Monitor is a natural fit for those professionals in finance, IT, digital design and architecture firms seeking to upgrade their technology and improve output. Utilizing LG’s IPS technology, the latest LG UltraWide Monitor offers stunningly accurate color reproduction covering 99 percent of the sRGB color space. Supporting High Dynamic Range (HDR) 10, it is also capable of displaying images and video in 4K resolution.

    To make the most of its expansive panel, the LG UltraWide Monitor provides the versatile Picture by Picture mode (PBP), making it possible to view content from multiple external sources side-by-side, or work with multiple applications simultaneously. Dual Controller Software allows users to connect to several devices and control all of them with just a single keyboard and mouse. This software combines perfectly with the PBP function to help improve workflow and increase efficiency. Via the USB Type-C port, users can also transfer data and charge devices including laptops with 85W batteries simultaneously. The UltraWide Monitor’s eye-catching 32:9 curved screen heightens the user’s sense of immersion when viewing movies and other content. What’s more, the clean, minimalist design and slim metal stand add an elegant touch to this productivity powerhouse.

    2019 LG UltraGear Gaming Monitor

    LG is also debuting its rapid 38-inch Nano IPS UltraGear Monitor at CES 2019. The latest LG UltraGear Monitor supports NVIDIA G-SYNC™ to reduce ‘screen tearing,’ a 144Hz refresh rate and an impressively low response time of 2m/s allowing for fast and fluid gaming. Vivid images with jaw-dropping color come courtesy of the LG UltraGear Monitor’s 3840 x 1600 resolution and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The LG UltraGear Monitor facilitates enveloping gaming experiences with its 21:9 ultrawide ratio, curved screen and virtually borderless design. Gamers can also create their own unique ambiance with Sphere Lighting that boasts six color settings to complement any game or movie.

    “LG is consistently bringing advanced monitors to market, packed with features and functions specifically for different consumer segments,” said Jang Ik-hwan, head of LG’s IT division of the Home Entertainment Company. “With a wide choice of models that prioritize productivity, picture quality and out-of-this-world gaming, more and more consumers are seeing LG as a innovation leader in monitors.”

    Visitors to LG’s booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #11100) at CES 2019 will experience first-hand the new features of the 2019 UltraWide monitors from LG.

    Hi folks

    rather strange this as new builds / houses / apartments / condos etc get ever smaller - how in the world will you fit all these huge monitors into your home.

    I don't think many young Londoners will be able to get these things into their homes !!!!

    I can't say I understand the need or craze for ultrawide or IPS for gaming. Neither does much for games in my humble opinion. IPS creates ghosting, latency and glow, and ultrawide is unfortunately rarely supported officially anyway. While IPS have better wide color reproduction and accuracy, and ultrawide can create a sense of superior immersion, looks can be deceiving in a real gaming situation. Interestingly enough, everytime I game on the PC - even though I have two IPS monitors - I always choose my older TN because of the speed. Going from 1 to 4ms is huge for my eyes. Interestingly enough this LG boasts 2ms, so maybe this one is better, but I'm still not convinced. I have not tried curved before though, so I shouldn't jump to conclusion on that one.

    Quote from OP:

    That's doubtful at best for a monitor with 5,120 x 1,440 resolution. Unless the 4K is displayed with black blocks not just on the top and bottom of the videos/movies, like we watch movies now on TVs, but on the sides as well.

    These are the resolutions for the 4K and UHDTV:

    4K = 4,096 x 2,160
    UHDTV = 3,840 x 2,160
