LG Ultrawide model for Windows 8

LAS VEGAS: LG announced three monitors on at CES on Monday, all optimised for Microsoft's Windows 8 operating system.

These three models are the Ultrawide Monitor, Touch 10 Monitor and Colourprime Monitor, all of which use in-plane switching technology for great viewing angles and vibrant colours.

"LG has focused on blending highly specialised functions with stellar IPS technology. These three monitors will push boundaries and reshape people's expectations," said LG Electronics senior vice president Il Geun Kwon at the firm's CES press conference attended by V3.

The Ultrawide model, as its name suggests, offers an expansive screen. It comes with a 29in screen with a 21:9 aspect ratio, which LG claimed makes this an ideal model for watching movies.

But it is also a suited to design professionals, LG added, and it has been designed with productivity in mind thanks to its four-screen split technology.

The Touch 10 Monitor features 10-point touch capability, which lets users interact using 10 fingers on the screen at once. LG said that this screen delivers an optimal Windows 8 experience, with its 23in real estate suitable for showcasing the operating system.

Finally, the Colourprime model has been designed with graphics professionals, photographers and filmmakers in mind, LG said. It boasts Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) 2560x1440 resolution.

"It also accurately reproduces a wide colour palette that represents 100 percent of RGB [red, green and blues] and 99 percent of the Adobe RGB," LG said.

"Simply put, the EA83 ColorPrime monitor is a graphics powerhouse."

LG said that the new monitors will be released later this year, although there's no word on pricing or availability yet.
