All three models, which will be unveiled at next week's 2013 International
CES®, employ LG's advanced IPS (In-Plane Switching) technology to deliver
exceptional picture quality and raise the bar for displays this year.

"LG has focused on blending highly specialized functions with stellar IPS
technology. These three monitors will push boundaries and reshape people's
expectations," said Il Geun Kwon, Senior Vice President and Head of the IT
Business Unit at LG Electronics' home entertainment unit. "The UltraWide,
ColorPrime and Touch 10 offer solutions for nearly every task imaginable,
whether it's watching the latest blockbuster movie, performing graphic design
tasks, or anything in between. With this diverse range of creative and highly
advanced products, LG has definitely set the tone, and the pace, for 2013."

UltraWide Monitor: Multitasking and Multimedia Functionality
LG's EA93 UltraWide monitor boasts an incredible 21:9 aspect ratio. With a
class screen size of 29 inches (29.0 inches diagonal), it offers an expansive
display with outstanding multitasking and multimedia capabilities, making it
ideal for watching movies. It is also equipped with LG's immersive, thin-bezel
CINEMA SCREEN Design. The UltraWide monitor has been designed with
productivity in mind, and is ideal for analyzing documents with ease, as its
extra screen real estate means more spreadsheet columns are visible at any one
time.

When superior multitasking is needed, the 4-Screen Split feature conveniently
divides the UltraWide's screen into four sections. Instead of having to
manually resize and position each open window, a few simple mouse clicks
enable the user to quickly arrange programs into a variety of useful
configurations. Adding even more versatility, the Dual-Link Up function can
connect the monitor to two external devices (e.g. notebooks, smartphones, PCs,
cameras or external hard drives) simultaneously. Graphic designers may also
find the monitor's 100 percent sRGB color space expression and support for
color calibration helpful. The monitor couples these excellent features with
IPS technology to help ensure the most accurate color reproduction of source
materials.

Touch 10 Monitor: Optimized for Windows 8 and Ten-finger Touch Control
The ET83 Touch 10 monitor's ten-point touch capability provides the optimal
Windows 8 user experience. Conventional touch screens offer two-finger
dragging, scrolling and pinching, whereas LG's 23-inch class (23.0 inches
diagonal) Touch 10 monitor allows the user to use all ten fingers
simultaneously. This translates into quicker and more natural typing when
using the Windows 8 on-screen keyboard while offering a familiar experience,
similar to that of a mobile device.

A truly innovative product, the Touch 10 opens new and creative possibilities
for interacting with content. It works with musical applications featuring
virtual pianos, synthesizers and string instruments. LG's unique monitor is
also ideal for educational applications as its advanced touch functionality
creates a fun and easy way for students to control the latest learning
software. The vivid IPS display provides a wide horizontal viewing angle that
is perfect for large groups to view the screen.

In addition, setting up the monitor is easy. Full touch interaction is
available as soon as the monitor is connected, with no extra software
installation required. A range of touch-friendly apps are currently available
from the Windows Store, offering consumers a fun and entertaining experience.*

ColorPrime Monitor: Color Management Powerhouse
The EA83 ColorPrime is a comprehensive monitor solution for filmmakers,
photographers and designers, providing a superior level of image and color
expression. This exceptional monitor boasts a visually stunning Wide Quad High
Definition (WQHD) resolution (2560 x 1440 pixels). It also accurately
reproduces a wide color palette that represents 100 percent of sRGB and 99
percent of the Adobe RGB. Simply put, the EA83 ColorPrime monitor is a
graphics powerhouse.

To further enhance colors with the upmost accuracy, LG's ColorPrime offers a
hardware calibrator as well as the advanced True Color Pro calibration
software. The monitor can also be rotated up to 90 degrees, giving graphics
professionals an alternative way to view and arrange their work.

IPS Technology: Vivid Color and Perfect Clarity
All these models employ LG's advanced In-Plane Switching (IPS) panels, to
provide the best possible picture quality. LG's innovative IPS monitors have
tripled in sales year-on-year, receiving numerous accolades and glowing
reviews from top-tier publications around the world.

LG demonstrated the exceptional picture quality of its IPS panels in the So
Real, It's Scary viral video released in October 2012. In the short clip, LG's
IPS monitors convince unsuspecting elevator occupants that the floor is
falling from beneath their feet. The stunt has received more than 15 million
views on YouTube.
