The multimedia 34UM79M, gamer 34UC99, and professional 32UD99 high-end monitors will make their first public appearances at CES 2017.

South Korean manufacturer LG will be showing off at least three monitors next month with native 4K UHD, HDR10, and built-in Chromecast streaming.

The first monitor is the 32-inch 32UD99 that covers 95 percent of the DCI-P3 color space to appeal to graphic artists and professional users. The monitor will make use of USB Type-C for both data transfers and charging capabilities. Built-in audio will be branded as "LG Rich Bass" to accentuate the supposedly above average bass reproduction that nearly all built-in monitor speakers typically lack.

The second monitor is the ultrawide 21:9 34-inch 34UM79M that will be the first multimedia monitor with Google Chromecast for easy streaming of movies, music, and games. The monitor will also allow for multi-tasking between connected PCs and mobile devices.

Lastly, the 34-inch 34UC99 will cater specifically to gamers with its 1 ms response times to reduce motion blur and support for AMD FreeSync to reduce screen tearing. This particular monitor will likely compete against the recently announced AOC Agon AG251FZ that also carries similar specifications but with even more features.

Prices and availability for the monitors have not been officially announced, but more details will likely be revealed in the coming weeks.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
