LG Electronics on Monday introduced two new premium IPS monitors, the EA93 and EA83. The latter is aimed at professionals looking for wide quad high definition (WQHD) resolution (2560*1440 pixels), whereas the former is the world's first monitor with 21:9 aspect ratio, the same ratio used in real movie theaters.

 

“Through continuous innovation of our IPS monitors, we are raising the user experience to a whole new level for home entertainment and graphic professional use. The EA93’s immersive 21:9 cinematic screen and the EA83’s advantages when it comes to advanced graphics applications make these newest monitors compelling additions to our premium IPS monitor line-up,” said J.J. Lee, executive vice president and head of the IT business unit at the LG home entertainment company.

The 29" EA93 boasts 2560*1080 resolution, and since the aspect ratio is identical to that of a typical movie theater screen, contents are shown just the way they were intended. The EA93 accurately captures 100% of the defined sRGB color space, and the monitor delivers 300nit brightness for higher quality, more lifelike colors. The extra-wide screen is also useful in work situations, helping to improve productivity. The 4-screen split feature can divide the display into four segments, transforming the monitor into an advanced multitasking tool. The monitor may be plugged to two devices simultaneously.

The 27" EA83 was designed to be a comprehensive monitor solution for filmmakers, photographers, designers, and other graphics experts by providing a combination of superior resolution of 2560*1440 and lifelike colors. Just like the EA93, the EA83 features one of the widest color spaces in its category - 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. The EA83 ships with software and hardware color calibrators, enabling graphics professionals to ensure that the screen always displays the most accurate and natural colors.



Pricing of the novelties is unknown.
