Ideum of Corrales, New Mexico, USA, has used LG’s 34″ 3440 x 1440 monitor to create a ‘reading rail’ display in an all aluminium case and with 40 point touch for museums and other exhibition areas. The company is using the monitors in a project with the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery. The company pointed out that the unit, which replaces a previous version based on an LG 38″ ‘stretch’ display, has higher resolution which can be a real advantage in this kind of application.
