LG’s New UltraFine 4K OLED Monitors Can Automatically Calibrate Colors

LG today announced an update to its UltraFine OLED Pro monitors, and while we wouldn’t normally get excited about what looks like a standard refresh, the new panels come with a unique photo and video editor tool.

LG’s new 27- and 32-inch 4K OLED Pro models (32BP95E and 27BP95E) come with a detachable self-calibration sensor that measures the amount of light emitted from the screen, allowing the panel to automatically adjust to display more accurate colors. to give. For best results, a hood can be mounted on the monitor to prevent external lights from skewing the readings.

You can schedule when you want the attachment to start calibrating, then head over to LG’s Calibration Studio app to match the colors to the project you’re working on. LG has not specified whether the color calibrator can match custom profiles or be set to different color spaces. I have contacted the company and will update this article when I know more.

We can’t say for sure how well the detachable calibration sensor will replace more robust (and more expensive) tools, but it seems like a nice feature for content creators to have on hand. LG’s monitors aren’t the only options, though. Dell’s UltraSharp 27 comes with a built-in colorimeter that pops out from the bottom edges, and a company called Eizo has been doing this for years.

Forget the colorimeter and these LG panels still have one distinct advantage: OLED, which consists of individual self-illuminated pixels that enabled things like a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, perfect black levels and a wide color gamut. While there are some drawbacks (the burn-in potential, most notable), OLED is the most important display technology today.

If you want the best picture quality and have the money, the 32BP95E has a 31.5-inch, 3840 x 2160-pixel display, while the 27BP95E has a 27-inch display with the same resolution. Both are rated to cover 99% of the DCI-P3 color gamut and promise HDR400 support and 1 millisecond response times. We asked LG about refresh rates, but you can safely assume it will be 60Hz, making this a poor choice for gamers (to be fair, that’s not what they’re meant for).

These two monitors move along the screen, have a slim profile and can be adjusted in height, rotated and tilted. Ports include a USB-C input with 90W of power to charge your laptop, three USB Type-A downstream ports, a USB Type-A upstream input and dual HDMI ports.

Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect to pay a pretty penny, as the current 27- and 32-inch monitors cost $3,000 and $4,000, respectively.
