LG unveils first Chromecast-enabled UltraWide monitor ahead of CES 2017


Ahead of CES, LG has revealed the Chromecast-enabled 34UM79M 21:9 UltraWide display that is said to be the first of its kind to offer Google’s streaming platform built-in. FreeSync technology and 1ms response times will makes this 34-inch monitor a notable release for gamers. The UltraWide layout will offer enough room for two different sources to be shown at once. This feature will be extra attractive to avid streamers and those invested in Google’s ecosystem.

Today’s news also brings the 32-inch 32UD99 that offers HDR10 support and USB-C connectivity alongside an IPS 4K panel. With Apple discontinuing its Thunderbolt Display, LG’s latest creation is likely to be a notable alternative for Mac users. USB-C ports bring single cable connectivity that can charge your MacBook and add additional ports thanks to the built-in hub. This 34-inch display is a follow-up to the LG’s first USB-C offering that was released last spring (review). Final pricing has yet to be announced on either of LG’s newest releases. Look for these new LG monitors to draw a lot of attention amongst content professionals at CES this year, where additional details are expected to be shared.
