LG Electronics has introduced a new line of professional OLED monitors.
The new “LG UltraFine OLED Pro” series of reference monitors – demonstrated for the first time by at NAB 2022, is headlined by the new 65-inch display (model 65EP5G), the LG OLED Pro line also includes recently launched feature-rich 31.5- and 26.5-inch class monitors.
Dr. Nandhu Nandhakumar, senior vice president, office of the CTO, LG Electronics said: “We started with the Emmy-Award-winning LG OLED reference display and added a full range of features and functions to streamline the user experience for professional broadcast and content production applications.
“The new LG OLED Pro UltraFine displays offer versatile options for a variety of visual tech applications. Each model is optimised for numerous creative workflows while faithfully reproducing the content creator’s visual intent. The result is stunning, colour-rich, high-contrast content every time.”
All the new LG OLED Pro UltraFine models offer 10-bit colour depth and use the DCI-P3 (for cinema) and Adobe RGB (for digital imagery) colour space standards to deliver reference-grade performance.
The new 65-inch OLED Pro monitor is a 120Hz UHD model that combines more than 8 million self-illuminated RGBW pixels with advanced calibration capabilities to achieve reference-quality performance and high colour accuracy and uniformity. It includes LG’s proprietary SuperSign software for white balance and natively supports Calman colour calibration software for picture quality. The LG 65EP5G also supports programmable hardware 1D and 3D LUTs (lookup tables) and multiple colour-accurate profiles for rapid transitioning between calibrated modes.
Separating the professional model from consumer models, the LG 65EP5G features a new custom user interface (UI) that allows for independent selection from 20 calibratable 1D LUTs (10 x SDR, 10 x HDR, 10 x DolbyVision) and from 100 calibratable 3D LUTs (50 x SDR, 50 x HDR) for programming and activation. The 3D LUTs can be individually selected for either SDR or HDR modes of operation, and for each of the colour spaces supported (BT.709, BT.2020, sRGB, P3 and Adobe RGB). In addition, the UI allows selection from 10 1D LUTs for SDR and 10 for HDR that can be set to different white points, PQ tracking, and/or SDR gamma performance.
The input options are designed for professional creators, particularly the four loop-through 12G SDI ports that enable a single monitor to display up to four Full HD feeds simultaneously. Additional inputs are HDMI, IP (SFP+ and RJ45) and Genlock. The monitor supports P3, Adobe® RGB and sRGB color profiles, in addition to broadcast standard profiles. Supported high dynamic range video formats include HDR10, HLG, and DolbyVision, all of which can be user-calibrated.
“The LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro is the ultimate OLED monitor for every professional’s desk, delivering the performance and features required for efficiently tackling today’s most demanding digital content tasks,” Nandhakumar said.
