LG Electronics (LG) will  unveil a new line-up of products to allow consumers more freedom to customize their work and play space to better fit their growing needs. At CES 2016, LG will showcase its newest 21:9 UltraWide monitors, 4K gaming monitors and Ultra PC gram laptop, all designed for maximum productivity and entertainment for today’s demanding power users.

“We are always thrilled to be able to show international audiences our newest monitor and PC innovations at CES,” says Jang Ik-hwan, Head of the Monitor and PC division at LG Electronics. “LG is always innovating to exceed customers’ expectations by creating products that provide breathtaking aesthetics and unparalleled user experience.”

The new products will be available in the GCC in the first quarter of 2016.

LG monitors

LG’s monitor exhibition at CES will feature a setup for gamers and digital professionals based around the wide 34-inch, 21:9 Curved UltraWide Monitor (model 34UC98) featuring Thunderbolt 2. The 3440×1440 QHD monitor’s large screen size, picture quality-enhancing IPS technology and streamlined features are designed to meet the needs of a wide range of users from avid gamers to digital media professionals, delivering a well-rounded multimedia experience for content creators and viewers alike. The LG 34UC88 offers QHD picture with its expansive 21:9 Curved UltraWide display.

Equally stunning is LG’s Ultra HD 4K Monitor (model 27UD68) with images so sharp gaming will never be the same again. Both monitors utilize AMD’s advanced FreeSync technology for a fluid gaming experience free of artifacts, choppiness and broken frames.

At its CES booth, LG will also showcase its flat 21:9 UltraWide 34UM88 Monitor, the perfect workstation for digital professionals such as photographers and graphic designers who depend on precise image reproduction. Its wider field of view enhances productivity by creating a bigger workspace in which to view photos side by side and work on multiple applications at the same time. And the monitor’s Thunderbolt 2 compatibility is indispensable for artists who work with large image and video files.

Also debuting at CES is the LG Ultra HD 4K Monitor (model 27UD88), a 27-inch monitor designed for creative professionals featuring the latest USB-C port technology. Representing the next generation of computer connectivity, it allows users to charge a laptop as fast as with a dedicated power cord and simultaneously transfer data at USB 3.0 speeds. The single cable gives users the ability to connect their laptops to an external monitor while also using it as a power source, eliminating the need for more cables. The 27UD88 also offers colour presets including the popular Rec. 709 and SMPTE-C broadcasting standards, giving users a fast and easy way to adjust the picture depending on the content displayed on the screen.

In addition to its proprietary colour-enhancing IPS display technology, LG will debut a number of design elements in its 2016 monitor line-up. The virtually invisible bezel on select Infinity Display model(24MP88) and the elegant ArcLine Stand add elegance that matches the beauty of their IPS displays.

Portable PC

Visitors to LG’s booth at CES will also have a chance to experience the company’s newest portable PCs first-hand. Despite its large 15.6-inch screen, the LG gram 15 (model 15Z960) is barely larger than a conventional 14-inch laptop. As the lightest 15-inch laptop in the world, it is built to be durable while maintaining a weight of just 980g, making it the perfect choice for office workers or students. With sixth-gen Intel Core processors and Windows 10, the LG gram 15 prioritises both productivity and mobility.
