LG Electronics (LG) aims to strengthen its already solid position in the premium monitor segment with its new Ultra monitors at CES® 2021. Designed with gamers, digital artists and technology professionals in mind, the latest UltraGear™, UltraWide™ and UltraFine™ series monitors deliver superior productivity and entertainment experiences and are perfect for both home and office use.

2021 LG UltraGear Gaming Monitors

Boasting Nano IPS 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) displays, LG’s new UltraGear gaming monitors (models 27GP950, 32GP850 and 34GP950G) deliver the ultimate gaming experiences. All three 2021 models instantly make games of any genre more immersive via the brand’s vaunted speed and picture quality, high screen resolutions and a wide color gamut (DCI-P3 98 percent).

The 27-inch UltraGear 4K UHD monitor (model 27GP950) facilitates fast, fluid gameplay with a rapid refresh rate of 144Hz, overclockable to 160Hz. It also supports HDMI 2.1 Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) for fluid images and enables users to enjoy exhilarating 4K gaming at up to 120Hz on both PCs and the latest generation of consoles. Adding to the premier gaming performance of 27GP950 is LG’s hardware calibration, which allows the monitor’s Nano IPS display to reproduce colors that are both exceptionally accurate and incredibly vibrant.

The LG 32GP850 monitor is a worthy successor to last year’s acclaimed model 27GL850. The 31.5-inch Quad High Definition (QHD) Nano IPS monitor delivers next-level gaming with an ultra-high speed 165Hz refresh rate liquid crystal panel, overclockable to 180Hz. NVIDIA G-SYNC® Compatible, this UltraGear takes gamers deeper into their favorite titles, producing rich, vivid images without the worry of tearing or stuttering.

A 2021 CES Innovation Award-winner, the LG 34GP950G brings a cinematic quality to games courtesy of its 34-inch, 21:9 aspect ratio UltraWide QHD Nano IPS display with 144Hz refresh rate (overclockable to 180Hz). This monitor features NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE, the highest tier of G-SYNC performance officially certified by NVIDIA, to provide the best picture quality with minimized visual stuttering and tearing as well as a more immersive gaming experience.

Additionally, models 27GP950 and 34GP950G are VESA DisplayHDR 600-certified, while the 32GP850 monitor supports HDR10 for dynamic gaming at its best. Each model features a screen with a matte finish to reduce reflections and an attractive circular design on its rear casing that forms part of LG UltraGear’s distinctive, futuristic look.

2021 LG UltraWide Monitor

Another CES Innovation Award honoree, LG UltraWide monitor 40WP95C, is a multitasking powerhouse that features a 40-inch curved Nano IPS display with 5K2K UltraWide (5,120 x 2,160) resolution and 21:9 aspect ratio. With its generous screen real estate, this monitor can help boost users’ productivity, letting them view and do more on-screen at any one time. This makes the display a great choice for digital content creators and developers or for anyone who multitasks on a regular basis. Stunningly sharp image quality with 98 percent (typical) coverage of the DCI-P3 color space and 135 percent of the sRGB color space provides the precision needed for the most detailed work, while support for HDR 10 guarantees impeccable HDR performance. LG UltraWide also meets the connectivity needs of the modern professional with a host of options including Thunderbolt™ 4, which simultaneously provides fast data transfer and power delivery via a single cable. This monitor is ergonomically designed with full tilt, height and swivel adjustability, ensuring complete comfort for every type and shape of user.

2021 LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro

With its accurate color reproduction and outstanding HDR and SDR picture quality, LG’s UltraFine Display OLED Pro (model 32EP950) is an ideal solution for creative industry professionals such as visual effects artists and producers working in film or animation studios. The self-emissive OLED display gives the 31.5-inch 4K monitor a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 while independent dimming control of its more than eight million pixels helps eliminate the distracting halo effect common to HDR LCD displays. UltraFine Display OLED Pro also provides superb color accuracy, covering 99 percent (typical) of both the DCI-P3 and the Adobe RGB color space.

LG UltraFine Display OLED Pro achieves the color fidelity digital artists’ demand thanks to its 10-bit 4K OLED display and LG Calibration Studio. LG’s hardware calibration solution allows users to make direct adjustments to ensure the highest degree of color accuracy and consistency. And for convenient connection with a wide range of devices, the monitor features a plethora of ports: one USB Type-C with 90W charging, two DisplayPort, one HDMI and three USB.

“From immersive gaming to professional-level productivity and performance, LG’s cutting-edge Ultra monitors have what it takes to satisfy the needs of today’s most discerning consumers,” said Jang Ik-hwan, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Our leadership position in the premium monitor segment is only sustainable if we continue innovate with diverse new offerings designed for current and new customers alike.”

LG’s 2021 Ultra monitors are now on display in LG’s virtual exhibition booth during CES 2021. Keep up with all LG news at CES by following #LGCES2021 on social media.

Lenovo is thrilled to unveil our thinnest ThinkPad ever1, ThinkPad X1 Titanium Yoga. Covered in titanium material, it’s just over 11mm thin and features a gorgeous 3:2 ratio 13.5-inch low power display along with Dolby Vision® HDR support and Dolby Atmos® Speaker System. Also announcing today, ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 9 and X1 Yoga Gen 6 are completely redesigned laptops introducing improved user experiences built around all-new 16:10 aspect ratio displays with low blue light feature, integrated fingerprint reader on power button and new ComputerVision Experiences (CVx) support by human presence detection sensor for enhanced security and ease of use.
Joining Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos Speaker System, both X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga are the world’s first laptops to support Dolby Voice2, which delivers a supreme conferencing experience that feels more natural, reduces listener fatigue, and sounds stunningly clear to make meetings more productive. The new models join the trail blazing X1 Fold and ultra-light X1 Nano announced last September to complete a comprehensive 5G-ready3 premium ThinkPad X1 portfolio.
Furthermore, we are introducing an all-new ThinkPad X12 Detachable, combining the features of a high-performance laptop with the flexibility of a 12.3-inch detachable tablet. Protected by Corning® Gorilla Glass, the display supports input from the optional Lenovo Precision Pen or Lenovo Digital Pen and the backlit folio keyboard enables seamless transition between modes. Finally, the next level of intelligent docking experiences is led by the new ThinkPad Thunderbolt™ 4 and USB-C Universal and Smart Docks.
Designed to address dock manageability pain points brought by increased work-from-anywhere scenarios, the new docks allow silent detection, download and install of firmware updates. The Smart Docks, powered by Microsoft Azure Sphere, further enhance functionality by providing remote capabilities for updates, device management and port status monitoring without interrupting end user productivity and without the need for a PC to be connected.
Distributed Workforce Needs Efficient Tools
The past nine months have highlighted the critical nature of effective collaboration tools as most of us have embraced remote working. A recent Lenovo and Intel sponsored study suggests that 50 percent of employees feel their PC devices are out-of-date and would prefer businesses to focus on the fundamental daily technology experience. IT leaders plan to nearly double their investment in employee experience initiatives over the next two years to drive increased productivity, organizational agility and customer satisfaction.
Our focus through 2021 is to deliver workspace solutions for a distributed workforce that enable more agile collaboration. Investing in technologies in endpoint devices, smart collaboration, video conference optimized visuals and valuable docking options can make a significant difference on productivity and efficiency at any location. For ThinkPad, our emphasis is on enabling communications to stay in touch wherever the user is, optimizing system features for the best conferencing experience, boosting security for user and IT department piece of mind and implementing technology that enhances user well-being.
• We are driving for connectivity leadership, with all ThinkPad X1 models including 5G-ready options3 to enable faster Wireless WAN (WWAN) connection speeds. Not to worry if you are not in a 5G-enabled area, the module also supports 4G-LTE networks3 and users will benefit from future-proof technology as 5G infrastructure deployment accelerates.
• Built-in WiFi 64 can take advantage of high-speed wireless infrastructures when WWAN signal is not available.
• On X1 Carbon and X1 Yoga, we are introducing Dolby Voice for exceptional conferencing experiences leveraging spatial audio technology that separates voices for a more natural, less fatiguing meeting when using compatible services. Dolby Voice also optimizes speaker and microphone performance with features such as dynamic levelling to automatically adjust for voices that are quieter or further away and noise suppression that reduces unwanted background noises and echo no matter what meeting platform you use. Productivity is further enhanced with improved speech recognition for voice assistants. Across the portfolio, certain displays are being enhanced with blue light reduction to reduce eye strain, as we spend more and more time on video conferences. New 16:10 or 3:2 screen ratios also offer more pixels per real estate, increase screen-to-body ratios and can improve productivity with better content distribution on the display.
• Our latest X1 portfolio support Dolby Vision on select displays for lifelike image quality and incredible color fidelity along with Dolby Atmos Speaker System, which enables spectacular Dolby Atmos audio experiences. The X12 also offers Dolby Vision support with Dolby Audio™ Speaker System for crystal clear audio
• The ThinkPad X1 portfolio (X1 Fold excepted) is designed on Intel Evo™ platform4 and powered by 11th Gen Intel Core processors with Intel Iris® Xe graphics to deliver improved speed and intelligence6 . Working in tandem with ThinkShield™ security solutions, Intel Hardware Shield, available exclusively on the Intel vPro platform, provides integrated hardware-based PC protection for more secure business productivity.
• Security and the ComputerVision Experiences (CVx) are further improved with the addition of Human Presence Detection for zero touch log-in through Windows Hello facial recognition7 and will also lock the system when users walk away. These new features matched with improved battery life8, optional PrivacyGuard ePrivacy display that helps protect users from prying eyes, and PrivacyAlert that will warn them of shoulder surfers, bring new CVx to a higher level of engagement. Integrating the fingerprint on the power button helps efficiency by combining two functions into a single action.
• Available across the entire ThinkPad line is the latest update of Lenovo Commercial Vantage9. The new version 1.3 brings with it a new and improved layout and user interface, making it easier for users to control and customize the unique hardware features built into their device and for IT admins to better manage the end user experience.

It often starts with a line, more specifically with a brushstroke. This is how a lot of car designers kick off their sketch. In collaboration with paper toy maker Tougui, Nissan is bringing these lines to life with a wintery twist this holiday season.

 

“First, you roughly define the proportion of your vehicle, depending on whether you are working on a crossover, a sports car or a small car. You only need a few lines for that,” says Matthew Weaver, Vice President Design, Nissan Europe. “Some lines are very distinctive for our vehicles, such as the floating roof on Ariya. I believe the fewest strokes to form the vehicle shape is ideal. It determines whether your car is recognizable and sometimes it makes it iconic.”

 

Inspired by electric vehicle design lines, Tougui created six paper snowflakes anyone can easily reproduce at home, based on the body lines of the all-electric Nissan Ariya and LEAF.

 

“It’s crazy to see how many declinations are possible, they are all so different, yet they all start with a few simple lines,” said Guillaume Pain, the French artist behind Tougui. “The personality of each vehicle stands out.”

 

No elaborate material is needed: just paper, a pen (if you prefer to draw the lines yourself instead of printing the template), scissors and some creativity. These pretty snowflakes can be made in any size or color.

 

Share your creation with Nissan by tagging images of your paper snowflakes on social media with #NissanHoliday.

Pirelli is extending its partnership with Montblanc with the launch of a new limited-edition luggage, featuring Pirelli mini-tyres that mirror the P ZERO™ tyre line. Introduced across Montblanc boutiques and selected store retailers in the region, the new luggage has been designed for those who seek style and high levels of performance while on the move.

Boasting outstanding design with black polycarbonate shell and rubberised red leather details, the lightweight luggage has been equipped with high-performance roller-bearing wheels specially developed by Pirelli engineers. Leaning into the tradition of mobility and speed upheld by Pirelli since 1872, the rubber compound created for the first time by the premium tyre maker ensures durability and quiet running wheels. The 360-degree roller-bearing wheels mirrors the asymmetric tread motif of Pirelli’s P ZERO™ high-performance tyres.

“Pirelli P ZERO™ is the tyre of choice on many of today’s most exceptional and powerful sports cars because it guarantees extreme performance with its enhanced grip and control. With these new wheels featuring a special rubber compound and the iconic Pirelli tread, we are bringing that same focus on performance to our travel assortment, with the purpose of meeting the needs of today’s luxury business traveller in the most effective and stylish way,” says Nicolas Baretzki, Montblanc CEO.

P ZERO™ tyre is the Ultra High-Performance product combining Pirelli’s knowledge gained from Motorsport experience and Pirelli’s collaboration with some of the top car manufacturers. As confirmed by a noise test carried out in the Pirelli labs, the new wheels deliver a 10% noise reduction and a more homogeneous noise distribution over the entire sound spectrum compared to the already quiet running Montblanc #MY4810 luggage wheels, thanks to the rubber compound which has been specially formulated in the Pirelli R&D laboratories.

Pirelli’s expertise in mobility, speed and performance is paired with Montblanc’s passion for creating innovative and stylish products with technical features that help make the travel experience more seamless. Inside the cabin-size luggage, a spacious compartment with elastic bands on one side and a black net on the other side with zip closure makes ample storing of clothes and accessories easy. It also features a business card pocket. The sleek aesthetics are enhanced with elegant details inspired by iconic design cues from the red luggage tag to the dynamic and sporty design of the aluminium wheel rim that takes up the real design of a spoked car rim, as well as the “Montblanc x Pirelli” lasered on the handle bar as signature of the collaboration.

Part of the Montblanc #MY4810 product line, the Montblanc x Pirelli limited edition was created in collaboration with Pirelli Design, specialised in conceiving innovative projects in collaboration with partners par excellence and features:

• Black polycarbonate lightweight shell
• Hard nylon corners, resistant to scratches and with a matt look
• 360°degree roller-bearing wheels mirroring the asymmetric P ZERO™ tread motif.
• Tread compound’s lower abrasion speed for higher mileage and durability
• P ZERO™ PIRELLI red logo featured on mini tyres
• Upper handle in red rubberized leather and side handle in black leather to make lifting the luggage and storing it easier
• Multi-stop precision handlebar adorned with collaboration signature
• Red luggage tag with reflective Pirelli artwork

With a shared heritage in mobility, Montblanc and Pirelli elevate the travel experience through innovation, manufacturing excellence and creative design.

The New Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional watch has proved its toughness in a unique race.

Elliot Brown builds the toughest watches on the planet. They are relied upon by organisations such as Mountain Rescue and specialist units of the UK Armed Forces. Since 1948 Land Rover has been manufacturing authentic vehicles that represent true breath of capability. This extraordinary provenance and shared philosophy provided the perfect catalyst to collaborate to create this special edition watch.

Guinness World Record rower Arthur Chatto challenged stunt driver and W Series racing driver Jess Hawkins for his special edition timepiece. He went on foot off road against Jess in her Land Rover Defender 110, with the winner to keep the watch.

Arthur bets Jess he can get there faster on foot than she can in her Defender – or he’ll hand it over. The watch emerges unscathed after being plunged into a river and driven over by Jess’s Defender on a muddy track. But who gets to keep it?

The Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional watch is based on the original Elliot Brown Holton Professional that was developed with a specialist branch of the UK armed forces. Built to withstand harsh environments, the watch truly goes above and beyond in terms of its capability and durability.

Arthur Chatto said: “I knew Jess Hawkins would go flat out to try to win my Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional watch. She’s a stuntwoman and a racing driver – so it’s the perfect choice for her.

‘Having set a world record rowing around Great Britain wearing the watch I know how tough the watch is, so I was determined to keep it”

Jess Hawkins said: “Accepting Arthur Chatto’s wager was great fun. The new Land Rover Defender and the Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional watch are a perfect pair – both as tough as they look and highly desirable.”

Arthur Chatto used his Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional as official timekeeper on the record-breaking GB Row Challenge around the British coast in July 2020 – a 2,000-mile test of strength and endurance. The four-man team are the youngest to complete the distance.

The Land Rover x Elliot Brown Holton Professional watch is part of Land Rover’s Above and Beyond Collection of technical clothing and equipment.

It is available globally through Land Rover Retailers and online in select markets.

BUGATTI and TIDAL Audio are united in a shared philosophy: to strive for perfection without limits in order to perform with exceptional design, effort and uncompromising spirit. The two companies, leading in their respective fields of exclusive luxury automotive design and premium audio systems, will set a new standard for home music systems – introducing ‘the BUGATTI of home audio’. The two companies will work to establish a new category of sound systems, underpinned by unrivalled exclusivity and high quality like no other.

The partnership between BUGATTI and TIDAL Audio begins with the “Royale” range of speakers that lead the way for luxury in the home audio sector. Technical avant-garde meets a passion for design, the perfect finish and outstanding results – with the visual promise of the breathtaking performance that follows. Just as the engine of a Bugatti hyper sports car releases power and emotions, this unrivaled sound impresses with its finest definition and incredible power.

The superlative quality becomes its own metaphor and redefines the parameters of audio equipment design. Just as the BUGATTI models on four wheels give an almost infinite number of possibilities for customization, the options list for this new standard of home audio is equally as unique. As for the design there are two main themes: Monocoque and Duotone. One can select between piano finishes or avant-garde color and material combinations. Each “Royale” loudspeaker pair can be customized with carbon fiber, fabrics, leather, polished stainless steel, dark aluminum or precious metal surfaces.

The front of the speakers show the BUGATTI logo plaque, finished in polished stainless steel and curved to accommodate the shape of the unit up to the brand’s qualities for personalization and performance – every set of speakers by TIDAL for BUGATTI is subject to a very personal bespoke ordering process, allowing the customer to share their precise vision of the best audio system in the world. And the plaque at the backside, branded ‘TIDAL for BUGATTI’, underlines the exclusive cooperation.

The “Royale” is deploying four subwoofer drivers per speaker and a 3-way front unit with a midrange-driver and tweeter with diamond diaphragms. The diamond diaphragm tweeter can be also found in our cars. The Royale is an active speaker with housing extremely powerful amplifier channels inside. The matching music controller allows to connect to all kinds of sources, including music streaming services and TV and can be controlled with smart devices.

The start of the partnership manifests itself in the ‘Edition Noir’ and ‘Edition Blanc’, each limited to only 15 pairs.
