Earlier this week LG unveiled their latest Ultra HD 4K monitor in the form of the 31MU97 LG Display Cinema 4K which is equipped with a huge 31 inch display providing users with a resolution of 4,096 x 2,160 pixels.
The new 31MU97 LG Display Cinema 4K monitor also provides a 19 x 10 ratio display with 10-bit colour that can cover 99.5 percent of the Adobe RGB spectrum and ultra-sharp high-end imagery that meets the standards of the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI).
LG has now revealed that the new 31MU97 LG Display Cinema 4K monitor will be priced at $1,399 in the US. LG explains :
“The LG 31MU97 is especially well suited for professionals who demand the sharpest possible images for either work or leisure. The LG 31MU97 is equipped with several unique high-end functions that will satisfy most discerning professionals. Video pros can edit 4K content in the ideal resolution with standard Digital Cinema 4K without image scaling.
Editing footage with full color expression is made possible by the DCI color standard support which reproduces color realistically, covering 97 percent of DCI-P3 color space, the standard for digital cinema projectors and digital camera. And the LG 31MU97 comes with an ergonomic pivot design that offers maximum convenience for displaying as much of the image on the screen as possible to minimize scrolling and dragging.”
Unfortunately contrary to the Australian LG website which states the monitor supports Thunderbolt in the US. LG has confirmed that the 4K monitor does not, but an adapter will be provided for Mac users to connect the monitor via a Displayport cable that will support 4K, 10-bit resolution.
