CES 2018 is nearly here and LG is set to wow those who are attending by showing off their new line of Nano IPS monitors.

In its explanation of Nano IPS technology, LG says its benefits stem from the application of nanometre-sized particles to the screen's LED to absorb excess light wavelengths. With its attractive signature Edge-ArcLine Stand and stunning 4-Side Edge Borderless Design where the picture literally drops off the edge, there is no mistaking this LG monitor for anything else. If this turns out to be true, then this will be the first time that LG launches a Nano IPS-based monitor. Like the 32UK950 above, it will have HDR600 support and Thunderbolt 3. "This greatly enhances the intensity and purity of on-screen colors for a more accurate and life-like viewing experience". This LG monitor can display 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color spectrum, which is the Hollywood standard. Its HDR chops come from a powerful backlight with a peak brightness of 600 cd/m².

Klopp says Liverpool must keep defensive recovery going at Arsenal
But he is ready to return on Friday as Arsenal look to avenge the embarrassing 4-0 loss at Anfield in August, increasing Wenger's tactical possibilities.

The 34-inch monitor has a 21:9 aspect ratio and 5K resolution and a borderless display. Again the Edge-ArcLine Stand, and 4-Side Edge Borderless Design are utilised. Also, a G-Sync Nano IPS gaming monitor - dubbed as 34GK950G - would debut at CES. Interestingly, the LG monitors will not only get video and audio across, but also charge a laptop from its power connector, meaning you can leave your MacBook Pro charge adaptor at home and let the LG monitor do the job. The 32UK950 will also carry a Thunderbolt 3 port, which LG says will allow it to chain two 4K monitors at once-a detail not specified for the 5K model-and "provide enough charge to power a 60W notebook".

Tim Alessi, head of product marketing at LG Electronics USA said, "Most of us spend hundreds of hours in front of monitors every month, yet it's one of the least likely products to get upgraded when higher productivity is desired".
