Streamline your 4K workflow with the Digital Cinema 31MU97-B 31" Widescreen LED Backlit IPS 4K Monitor from LG. This monitor features a 4096 x 2160 resolution complete with a 17:9 aspect ratio, a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 320 cd/m² brightness rating, and can be viewed from 178° both horizontally and vertically. The enhanced resolution display can even be pivoted from widescreen to portrait mode to accommodate various types of content.

Whether editing video, photographs, or working with graphic design programs, this display is capable of handling nearly anything one can throw at it. With a native 4K resolution, post production video editing is a breeze as video is formatted to fit the entire screen with little to no distortion. The 17:9 widescreen aspect ratio allows you to work within two different programs simultaneously allowing you to see color differences and compare and contrast images without skipping back and forth between programs.

With two HDMI, one Mini DisplayPort, one DisplayPort, and four USB 3.0 ports you can connect this display to both Mac and Windows based computers. The integrated USB 3.0 ports allow you to connect peripherals such as hard drives, tablets, and more directly to the monitor. Integrated speakers with support for MAXXAUDIO complete the 4K cinema experience, providing high quality sound covering highs and lows for crisp audio quality.

The LG 4K monitor is designed for professionals who work in post production, which includes CG (Computer Graphics), VFX (Visual Effects), or DI (Digital Intermediate) work for the film, TV, and video industries, as well as the visual industry. Additionally, artists in the post production film industry who care mostly about Digital Cinema System Specifications will benefit greatly from the tools offered by this high resolution display.
Graphic Design
Graphic design professionals in publishing and those working directly with print ads, magazines, or package design can leverage the power and high resolution capabilities of this display when editing, processing, and producing relevant images.
Professionals who work outdoors on large scale projects and utilize natural light for documentaries and snap shots benefit from the Adobe 99.5% / DCI-P3 97% color gamut ensuring colors remain accurate.
Digital Cinema 4K Resolution
The 31MU97's Digital Cinema 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution delivers the optimal DCI film industry standard and provides more detailed content at 4096 x 2160 resolution. That's 552,960 pixels more than UHD resolution (3840 x 2160), and offers over four times the resolution of the standard 1920 x 1080 FHD. As a result, elaborate work such as color gradation or intricate adjustments are made comfortable for clear video output.
Maintain Color Accuracy throughout All Steps
Editing on-site footage with the full color expression is possible with the 31MU97's DCI color standard support which reproduces digital content color just like what you intended with the preview camera on site. This allows for accurate conditions such as shadow detail, color, saturation, and brightness for finer editing and overall control in the post production stage. Furthermore, with IPS Display, there's no distortion even on edges and corners, so you are able to take in the full expression of video content for an immersive viewing experience.
Work Two Programs Simultaneously
With the 31" 17:9 4K resolution display, it is possible to activate both editing and effecting programs at once, offering an enhanced work environment that enables verifying color and resolution between different programs under the same conditions. This enables you to preview the sequence details of edited film by frame rate on Premiere and effecting on After Effect simultaneously without any distortion.
Single Stream Transport Technology
The 31MU97 supports SST (Single Stream Transport) technology that delivers Digital Cinema 4K resolution from a single source, creating a smooth viewing experience while previewing film contents without any image sync issues or image tearing that other 4K monitors may have with limited MST (Multi-Stream Transport) or Tiled technology.
Versatile Connectivity
You can connect to various devices with the two HDMI, one Mini DisplayPort, one DisplayPort and four USB 3.0 ports. If you have a Mac, you can connect the 31MU97 via Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable that supports 4K resolutions and comes included with the monitor. Also, the integrated USB 3.0 ports allow you connect USB compatible devices such as external hard drives, tablets, and more directly to the monitor.
With two internal 5W speakers and the MAXXAUDIO functions, there is no need for separate high-end monitor speakers. The 31MU97 which supports MAXXAUDIO delivers high quality sound with a wide range of vibrant, crisp, and clean high and low sounds while reviewing or editing 4K contents.
No Color Shift or Distortion
The 31MU97 IPS display supports Adobe RGB over 99.5% / DCI-P3 97%, reproducing an accurate color level that includes the sRGB and CMYK color code standard for ensuring the color consistent reproduction from your monitor to all print materials that professionals are looking for.
10-Bit Color Depth
The 31MU97's 10-bit color depth that supports over 1-billion colors is 64 times richer than an 8-bit color display, re-creating colors softly and naturally without color banding. Now, all the details are right before you with the richer and wider color range that enables accurate, detailed, and natural-looking images.
Dual Color Space
Since you can compare the work done using both color modes simultaneously, half of the screen in one mode and the other half in another, color distortion and maintaining the original resolution are no longer a concern when it comes to output. With Adobe RGB and sRGB side-by-side, you can get an idea of how the final printable copy will look with Adobe RGB mode and also can find out how the final output will appear on websites with the sRGB mode at once.
Optimal Work Space
The 31MU97 has a wide 31" 17:9 ratio display that comes with a 90° pivot function and 140mm height for designers who work tasks such as vertical magazine editing. With the integrated pivot functionality, you do not need to adjust the vertical images or book size to work on a horizontal display.
Multiple Color Environments
The 31MU97 comes with variety of color modes ranging from the basic sRGB and Reader, all the way to the more advanced Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 Sim to accommodate a wide spectrum of needs that professionals require. Furthermore, with the joystick, you can simply choose between color mode feature presets or customized calibrations depending on the specific work for optimal results.
Over 99.5% Adobe RGB Color Coverage
By supporting Adobe RGB over 99.5% on the IPS Display, the 31MU97 minimizes color difference and color loss with the wide color gamut and color temperature that covers both the sRGB and CMYK color ranges. This is crucial as materials are converted to CMYK before printing. Furthermore, the IPS panel display delivers accurate color representation with no color distortion. As a result, one can retouch images and photos to create final products with vivid and vibrant colors that VA or other LCD panels cannot deliver.
