SEOUL, Oct. 18 (Korea Bizwire) – LG Electronics Inc. said Tuesday it has released a ultra-wide computer monitor in South Korea, adding it was the industry’s first company to release a 38-inch monitor.
With a 21:9 aspect ratio, it is expected to allow users to better work on multi-screen jobs, LG said in a statement. Users can resize and display multiple windows at once and customize the monitor layout for multi-screen work, it said.
The monitor also features a resolution of 3440×1440 pixels, about three times clearer than a full high-definition monitor, according to the statement.
