LG will introduce two new 21:9 UltraWide curved monitors this week at IFA 2016, its 38" UltraWide curved monitor (38UC99) and 34" 144 Hz IPS 21:9 curved UltraWide gaming monitor (34UC79G).

IFA 2016: LG To Unveil New UltraWide Curved MonitorsLG states that the 38UC99 is the world's largest 21:9 UltraWide monitor and is suited for visual content creators, data crunchers and other multitasking professionals.

It sports IPS UltraWide QHD+ (3,840 x 1,600) resolution and wide colour gamut covering 99 per cent of the sRGB colour space, with LG stating that it is the first UltraWide monitor to feature a USB Type-C port.

"The monitor also includes capabilities to customise display options with just a few clicks of the mouse and store customised colour settings with the easy-to-use Onscreen Control software and My Display Preset," LG states.

"And the 38UC99 is just as suitable for entertainment as it is for workplace efficiency. With two 10 W built-in Bluetooth-compatible speakers, the 38UC99 offers rich bass audio output in the 85 Hz bass range."

Meanwhile, LG states that the 34UC79G is the world's first 144 Hz IPS 21:9 curved UltraWide gaming
monitor, with it combining "a blindingly fast refresh rate with advanced one millisecond Motion Blur Reduction".

"The monitor boasts seamless image transitions without annoying after-images, and the IPS display delivers accurate colour expression from any angle without distortion," LG states. "With features such as Black Stabiliser and Dynamic Action Sync, the 34UC79G is specifically designed to meet the needs of today's gamers."

Black Stabiliser provides extra clear contrast, with Dynamic Action Sync reducing input lag, while AMD FreeSync delivers smooth gameplay without stuttering or screen tearing.

The 34UC79G's design features include tilting, adjustable height and a mouse line hook to minimise tangled cords.
