lg-ea93-monitor-wide.jpgLG have released the LG EA93, the first computer monitor to have a super-wide 21:9 ratio.

A 29-inch screen running at 2560×1080 resolution, it gives the user the option of having either a super-wide desktop, or to split the screen into as many as four separate virtual displays.

Using this system and Dual Link up technology, the screen can be used to hook up to two devices at once, removing the unsightly bezel split that mars conventional dual screen set ups.

First spotted at IFA 2012, the LG EA93 monitor also offers 100 percent of the sRGB color space and is hardware-colour-calibration ready, ideal for creative professionals who depend on the colour accuracy of their screens.

Ports include a DVI-D Dual x1, two HMDI ports(MHL x1), 4x USB 3.0, Display Port x1, PC Audio In, and Headphone Out.

“The cinematic proportions, diverse color range and all-around functionality of the UltraWide Monitor clearly demonstrate an ongoing commitment to innovation,” said J.J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of the IT Business Unit at the LG Home Entertainment Company.

Launching early this month in Korean first, a global roll out will follow in the weeks to come.
