LG has announced two stretched monitors designed for large public areas where widescreen or “tallscreen” displays could be used to display data or other content.
Though they look as if they may have suffered from a spot of medieval torture, they are in fact meant to be this way, boasting either 29 or 38 inches diagonally with a resolution of either 1,366 x 398 and 1,366 x 480. They can be used either vertically or horizontally, have a contrast ratio of 1,000:1, and a 9ms response rate.
The resolution means you can forget about watching high definition content on them, and they’re likely not going to be much use for connecting your home PC to, but they’d make for a great game of Defender, don’t you think?
The M3800S-BN and M2900S-BN are available now, prices to be confirmed.
