LG has introduced its new IPS7 Series of monitors that are highlighted by a near invisible bezel at just 1.2mm (.025-inch) thin. The new monitors use IPS technology for wide viewing angles and more consistent color representation. They come in 23-inch (IPS237L) and 27-inch (IPS277L) iterations although both are limited to a 1920×1080 resolution, but they also come with support for mobile high-definition link (MHL) out of the box.
Although the monitors don’t feature a WQHD resolution (2560×1440) that is typically preferred by photographers and graphic design professionals, they come with hardware color calibration capabilities built-in. They use a 16:9 aspect ratio and are rated at 250nit for brightness, while both displays are also capable of a 5ms response time. Color is also limited to 8-bit.
“By combining CINEMA SCREEN Design and MHL functionality with the industry’s leading IPS technology, the IPS7 series is able to offer stunning design and performance,” said J.J. Lee, Executive Vice President and Head of the IT Business Unit of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “With the rapid growth in the number of mobile smart devices such as smartphones and tablets, the availability of content has greatly expanded. LG’s IPS7 expands the user experience, enabling viewers to take full advantage of this content-rich environment.”
The LG IPS7 Series will first become available in South Korea, China and Hong Kong with a the displays rolling out to international markets over the next few months. Pricing has not been detailed at the time of writing.
