LG UltraWide 5K Monitor

By cameraman


From LG’s press office: http://www.lgnewsroom.com comes news of a new wide 5K monitor that looks to be a perfect match for that new MacBook Pro and FCPX 10.4. Unfortunately, no news on prices yet but we might have a clue after CES next week. Think I might have to have a chat with the FPO!

Expected to be another hot item at this year’s CES, LG’s 34-inch UltraWide monitor (model 34WK95U) delivers a broad range of accurate colors and viewing angles at a surreal 5K resolution (5120 x 2160 pixels). LG’s very first 21:9 5K UltraWide monitor is loaded to the maximum with a hefty amount of screen real estate and eye-popping colors. This ultimate 5K viewing experience is geared towards users who multitask extensively, such as video editors, photographers and software and app developers.

Model 34WK95U supports Nano IPS technology, fantastic color reproduction capabilities and HDR600. In addition, model 34WK95U features a Thunderbolt 3 port, which enables the transmission of 5K resolution images at 60Hz with a single cable. The Thunderbolt™ 3 interface is ideal for power laptop users who desire fast video, audio and data transfers without the need for a separate AC adapter. With its elegant, stunning profile, this LG monitor turns heads even when powered off, with its 4-Side Edge Borderless Design and gorgeous slim Edge-ArcLine Stand addition to its refined image.

Much water has gone under the bridge since then, and these days most people own a camera and can go and make movies. Not that this is a bad thing, but where there is a need, there is also someone who would deliver – I’m talking about the cameras and software companies who have got crazy about unleashing their creativity in order to produce more and more products for enthusiasts and professionals like us. Let’s remember this year’s craziness.

The Grand Battle of the NLEs


When Blackmagic Design released its video tutorial to help FCP 7 users migrate to Resolve, I wrote an article that generated heated discussions mainly between FCPX, DaVinci Resolve and Premiere Pro users who tried to justify their NLE weapon of choice.

BMD indeed implemented many features, which I can honestly say from a perspective as a past software product manager, were pretty impressive in terms of software development. Anyone can see that the main goal is to attract users and persuade them to migrate to Resolve for not only grading, but also for editing.

Of course, Apple and Adobe fought back, releasing tons of feature of their own.

It is important to note that more features are not an indicator of software efficiency. As an editor, I know that the most crucial part in → continue…
