Bringing 4K home in 2014

LG-widescreen-31-inch-4k-2013-12-17-01

As we end a wonderful year, the prospect of  2014 and the promise of full 4K mastering and delivery is on our minds.

LG’s announcement of their ground-breaking 4K monitor, the 31-inch 31MU95 is an exciting step towards actually getting 4K into homes . It’ll feature a so-called DCI or Real 4K (4,096 x 2,160) IPS panel with a 19:10 ratio — similar to a screen it demo’d at CES last year. For comparison’s sake, most Ultra HDTVs and monitors like ASUS’s first 4K model display 3,840 x 2,160 pixels at 16:9. Interestingly, the new offering conforms to the 4K format recorded by RED’s Epic and Scarlet cameras and also packs a Thunderbolt 2 port with 20Gbps throughput. LG claims that’ll let you monitor 4K footage and archive it up at the same time — ideal for on-set movie playback or post-production, for instance.

LG will also offer 34-inch and 29-inch UM95 models with 3,440 x 1,440 resolution at 21:9, which will display 99-percent of the sRGB gamut and come with LG’s True Color calibration software. There’s no pricing on any of the new monitors yet, but Dell’s recently launched 32-inch 4K Ultrasharp model is running $3,299, by way of reference. The high-res panels and other ultra-widescreen business models from LG will arrive at CES 2014 in January — naturally, we’ll be there to fill in the wider picture!
