LG HDR Monitor Supports HDR10

LG Electronics has a new 31.5″ UltraHD monitor, the 32UD99-W that uses, of course, an IPS panel and supports HDR10 for content playback and has peak brightness of 550 cd/m² and typical brightness of 350 cd/m². It supports AMD FreeSync for game play and has a claimed 5ms GTG response time. Colour coverage is 95% of DCI-P3 and contrast is 1,300:1 and LG said that every monitor is individually calibrated. The monitor supports hardware calibration using True Colour Pro software. It can be rotated for portrait operation.

There are dual 5W speakers and inputs include two HDMI ports and a DisplayPort as well as USB Type C and dual USB 3.1. There are a range of PBP and PIP modes to exploit the multiple connections The Type C connection can act as a charger for an attached notebook, as well as supporting the DisplayPort ‘Alt’ mode for single cable connectivity.

Analyst Comment

Well, it turns out that this is the same monitor that has been advertised as the 32UD99, and is still listed as such by some LG websites. That monitor was announced in December and has been shown since CES. Some of the sites also only quote the brightness as 250 cd/m², as well, which is surprising given the high brightness in the peak mode. Anyway, there is only one 31.5″ UltraHD HDR model. (BR)
