LG Debuts Extremely Wide EA93 Monitor at IFA 2012

LG recently debuted a rather strange looking monitor before displaying it at this year's IFA 2012 conference. The monitor itself is designed with those who like to multitask in mind as well as people who really enjoy watching movies on their computers. Known as the EA93, this 29" monitor comes with a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is also the same ratio used in movie theaters, as well as a native WQHD resolution of 2,560 x 1,080, which makes it perfect for watching Blu-ray movies or gaming without having to deal with distracting screen bezels that typically come with multi-monitor setups.

In addition to movie buffs and multitaskers, the EA93 is also targeting photographers, multimedia professionals and others. The large frame and the ability for the screen to be split are some of the more appealing features for these users. The screen-splitting feature allows you to break up the display into four different segments and also allows for a variety of customizing options. What's more is that the Dual Link-up function also allows two devices to be connected to the monitor simultaneously, like your computer and a video game console, for example.

The EA93 also comes with a response time of 5ms and a 178-degree viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically. As far as connectivity options are concerned, the EA93 comes with one DVI-D Dual port, two HDMI ports, four USB 3.0 ports, one DisplayPort, PC audio in and headphone out. There is also support for Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL), allowing you to mirror the contents of your smartphone or tablet while simultaneously charging it as well.

Unfortunately, LG has yet to announce an exact release date, nor have they given out exact pricing information either. However, the EA93 wasn't the only thing that LG debuted at IFA 2012. In addition to this monitor, LG debuted the EA83, a 27" IPS monitor with a 2,560 x 1,440 resolution that will sell for €800, or a little over $1,000 USD. This monitor comes with a 16:9 aspect ratio and features a plethora of ports, including one DVI-D Dual, HDMI and USB 3.0.
