LG Electronics (LG) will be showing off a bunch of new products, notably the Chromecast-based PC monitor at CES 2017 in Las Vegas.
According to LG, the upcoming 34-inch 21:9 UltraWide™ Mobile+ Monitor (model 34UM79M) is the first Chromecast-enabled multimedia monitor in the world. This means that users will be able to seamlessly stream their favorite movies, music, games, and a lot more from their Android or iOS smartphones directly to the monitor without having to use a typical Chromecast HDMI dongle.
LG said that the Chromecast-based PC monitor also gives users the ability to view content from their PC and their smartphone at the same time via a single screen. Besides, the monitor comes with the Dual Controller Plus feature that can be used to control both their PC and smartphone using a single keyboard and mouse. Plus, the device works with the LG Mobile+ Monitor application that lets users control its settings, such as input, volume, PBP/PIP, and more remotely. The company added, they will also show off the 5K and 4K displays from its UltraFine line-up, alongside the 34-inch 21:9 gaming monitor (LG 34UC99).
In addition to introducing its first Chromecast-based PC monitor at CES 2017, LG will also introduce its first 4K HDR computer monitor. This 32-inch UHD 4K monitor with a 3840×2160 resolution includes the HDR10 standard support, which promises to bring in improved brightness levels and a wide color gamut image. Not stopping there, the LG 32UD99 ships a single USB Type-C port that is capable of streaming images to a 4K display, charging a connected laptop and transferring data via a single cable.
LG did not announce the potential release dates as well as price tag for these upcoming monitors.
