LG’s Digital Cinema 4K Monitor, the same one that was showcased at IFA last month, will soon be available for purchase. The 31MU97 features a 31-inch display and true 4K resolution but it also carries a steep price tag meaning it’ll largely target content creation professionals.
To clear up any confusion, consumer-grade 4K displays feature a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160 and are in fact a derivation of the 4K digital cinema standard which boasts a resolution of 4,096 x 2,160. The latter is what LG is offering with this monitor.
The South Korean electronics company claims the panel produces 10-bit color and covers 99.5 percent of the Adobe RGB color space. What’s more, it covers 97 percent of the DCI-P3 color space and comes with Thunderbolt support and Mac compatibility.
It also comes with a feature called Dual Color Space that allows the monitor to display two different color modes at once so users can compare different perspectives of their work simultaneously.
The display isn’t yet listed on LG’s US site so we don’t have access to the complete list of specifications but the photo above reveals the rear panel I/O ports.
The LG 31MU97 will be available starting this week in markets including the United States, South Korea, Germany, Australia and the UK followed by the Netherlands, Spain, Poland and Japan in November. LG didn’t provide a price in its press release although B&H has it listed at $1,399.99.
