LG look set to dominate the higher end of the 21:9 ultra-wide display market as they become the first company to reveal an IPS display unit. IPS (In-plane Switching) has a greater viewing angle and are regarded as much more accurate in terms of colour reproduction, and of being a higher quality panel in general when compared to TN panels. There are a fair few 21:9 ultra-wide displays on the market right now, but all of them featured TN or similar panel technology and IPS were nowhere to be seen.

The new LG 34UC97 features a AH-IPS panel, with an ultra-wide 21:9 screen format and a resolution of 3440 x 1440 over is 32.7″ display; the viewing angle is an impressive 178/178 °. Connectivity is well catered for, with Thunderbolt 2 interface, 2 HDMI ports, DisplayPort and two USB 3.0 ports; the monitor also features a pair of MAXX Audio 7w speakers. All the usual high-end features are here too, such as the Adobe RGB colour Gamut (99%) standards, LG’s true colour pro calibration software; Dual Colour Space.

The monitor has already started shipping worldwide with a price of $1,299 and if professional content editors were staying away from curved displays due to the lack of IPS panels, this could be the one to tempt them over to a less flat work space.
