“What the heck are ‘UltraWide,’ ‘ColorPrime’ and ‘Touch 10’?” They’re the newest additions to our IPS Monitor family for 2013. Each one promises optimal performance for entertainment, work and touchscreen interaction respectively, and all of these specialty monitors will be revealed here at the International CES.

In-Plane Switching (IPS) is the LG-developed LCD-enhancing solution that affords faster response times, wider viewing angles and superior color reproduction. And our refined IPS technology is better than ever this year.

The EA93 UltraWide Monitor offers a movie-friendly 21:9 aspect ratio, besting even 16:9 HDTVs with its near-perfect ability to display widescreen (2.35:1) movies without distracting black letterbox bars top and bottom. With a 29.0-inch diagonal screen, it offers an expansive view, even better with our immersive, thin-bezel Cinema Screen design. The cinematic UltraWide monitor doesn’t ignore productivity though, as its abundant real estate assures for example that more spreadsheet columns are now visible, without the need for side-to-side scrolling. Multiple large windows can also be displayed without overlapping.

For hardcore multitasking, the 4-Screen Splitfeature conveniently divides the UltraWide’s screen into four sections, so you won’t need to manually resize/reposition each open window. The Dual-Link Up function can also connect the monitor to a second source, such as a notebook, smartphone, camera, external hard drive, etc. Graphic professionals will also appreciate this monitor’s 100% sRGB color space expression, with color calibration.

The EA83 ColorPrime is a no-compromise monitor for serious professionals, whether you’re a filmmaker, photographer or designer. This exceptional monitor offers Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, and reproduces a wide color palette that represents 100 percent of sRGB and 99 percent of the Adobe RGB specification. In terms of graphics and color management, the ColorPrime is a beast.

For even greater color accuracy, the monitor includes a hardware calibrator in addition to True Color Pro calibration software. It can also be rotated up to 90 degrees, easily switching between traditional landscape (horizontal) and portrait (vertical) views as needed.

The ET83 Touch 10 Monitor is optimized for Microsoft’s new Windows 8 operating system, with ten-point touch capability for a premium user experience: Conventional touch screens offer two-finger dragging, scrolling and pinching. Our 23.0-inch diagonal Touch 10 screen can react to all ten fingers at the same time, for quicker and more familiar typing on the onscreen Win8 keyboard, more like what we would find on a mobile device.

This feature makes the Touch 10 ideal for musical apps such as virtual pianos, synthesizers and string instruments. It also provides educational value, allowing students to interact with the latest learning software in a compelling, natural way. The vivid IPS display also provides a wide horizontal viewing angle, ideal for large groups. Setup is a snap, with the full touch interaction operational as soon as the monitor is connected, no special software installation required. A range of touch-friendly apps is already available from the Windows Store.

You might have already seen our IPS panels in action: LG demonstrated their lifelike picture quality in the “So Real, It’s Scary” viral video released by our LG colleagues in the Netherlands last October. The clip features unsuspecting elevator occupants who–thanks to some well-placed LG IPS monitors–think that the floor is dropping away beneath their feet. The stunt has already received more than 17 million views on YouTube, and you can check it out for yourself right here:
