Finally, this monitor supports VESA DisplayHDR 400 to ensure “incredible visual immersion when viewing the latest HDR movies, images and games.”
The LG 32UL950 is a 31.5-inch monitor that supports 4K and Thunderbolt 3. Specially designed for content creators, this monitor excels in “colour space, brightness and versatility.”
Supporting HDR10 and Thunderbolt 3 means that the LG 32UL950 works easily with MacBooks and the suite of creation software that goes with them. Additionally, this monitor supports VESA DisplayHDR 600 which provides;
A new level of brightness performance for professional content creators. The Nano Cell Technology in the LG IPS panel enables a 98% DCI-P3 broad spectrum of colour to be seen at wide viewing angles, a must-have feature for those who value incredible graphical performance.
Connecting the monitor to a MacBook will deliver 60W of power for charging and for fast data transmissions.
