LG Electronics this week said that it began to sell the world’s first and only ultra-wide 21:9 computer display in South Korea and is beginning to ship the monitors to other markets. The 29” screen offers ample screen real estate, a 4-screen split feature and 100% sRGB color space expression to provide better multitasking and multimedia capabilities. Surprisingly, the new screens are not too expensive at all.

“LG is always working to expand the definition of what technology is and how it can contribute to productivity and convenience. Whether it is for work, watching movies, playing games or anything else in between, the UltraWide monitor enhances the multitasking and multimedia experience. The cinematic proportions, diverse color range and all-around functionality of the UltraWide Monitor clearly demonstrate an ongoing commitment to innovation,” said J.J. Lee, executive vice president and head of the IT business unit at the LG home entertainment company.

The 29" EA93 is based on IPS panel and boasts with 2560*1080 resolution, 300 nits brightness, 178°/178° viewing angle as well as 5ms GTG response time. The display has dual-channel DVI-D, two HDMI, DisplayPort, USB 3.0 and audio in/out interfaces. The monitor also sports two 7W speakers. The EA93 accurately captures 100% of the defined sRGB color space, and the monitor delivers 300nit brightness for higher quality, more lifelike colors.

The LG EA93 is equally good for work and entertainment. The monitor’s expansive 29”screen provides plenty of room for multiple documents and windows to be viewed at one time. The expansive display also allows more spreadsheet columns to be viewed at once or a two-page document to be read side-by-side. Naturally, ultra-wide display is also useful for graphics professionals. Since 21:9 aspect ratio is very close to the dimensions of movie theater screens, the dimensions allow the monitor to display films the way they were intended.

LG’s UltraWide Monitor hit the South Korean market early this month at ?690 thousand (around $635) and will be rolled-out globally in the coming weeks.

This monitor would be like two 17" monitors side by side. Slightly higher - 1080 vs 1024 pixels. Doesn't look interesting to me.

Nah, needs to be curved at this point, with that wide of a ratio.

21:9 what a c-r-a-p just like 16:9 when it came down to desktop monitor segment. It couldnt be used as monitor nor as television set as it's to damn small
