LG has launched a trio of 4K UltraGear monitors that promise high refresh rates and color accuracy. The monitors consist of two Nano IPS panels and one OLED display.
Though designed for gaming in mind, the focus on intense color accuracy and refresh rates can translate to these monitors being a solid solution for the edit bay and colorists. LG says the monitors will offer “elite visual performance” and speed.
The three panels include the 4K 32GQ950 and the QuadHD 32GQ850. Both are Nano IPS displays with Advanced True Wide (ATW) polarizer anti-glare technology.
LG says the ATW technology will improve the panel’s display of “lively, accurate colors and deep, dark blacks across a wide viewing angle.” Both also enjoy a refresh rate of 240Hz.
The 32” Q950 has a high peak brightness of 1,000 nits and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space.
Meanwhile, the Q850 has been VESA DisplayHDR 600 certified covering over 98% of the screen edge to edge, has a three-sided borderless design, and has a 1ms response time.
The third panel is a 4K OLED display known as the 48GQ900, representing LG’s first foray into the OLED gaming market. A massive 48-inch display provides total immersive coverage with a 120Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time.
LG has also added an anti-glare low reflection coating to combat glare.
The monitors also support NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD FreeSync, with the Q850 also supporting VESA Adaptive Sync for a variable refresh rate when needed. The Panels also have hexagon lighting.
All three monitors also include a four-pole headphone jack for plugging in gaming headsets and chatting during gameplay. With an angular space-saving design to enhance immersiveness and are pivot, tilt and pivot adjustable without an additional cost. We’re looking at you, Apple.
The monitors are held up by sleek and aesthetic angular stands that have the benefit of reducing desktop clutter, and Hexagon style lighting. The displays come with two HDMI 2.1 ports (3 for the Q900), and a display port, and the Q900 also has a remote control which LG says enhances the gaming experience.
Though designed chiefly for high-performance gaming, it’s easy to see how the color accuracy and refresh rates would be beneficial in the edit bay. And with Apple charging extra for the silliest of things, LG’s performance is clearly offering a high-performance alternative.
No word on pricing, but LG says all three UltraGear gaming monitors will be available starting this month in Japan with key markets in North America, Europe, and Asia to follow.
