LG deep contrast monitor

Korean giant LG has developed a new LCD monitor, said to have an abnormally high contrast ratio. Many typical monitors have ratios in the hundreds, or in the thousands in the case of high-end displays like Dell's 3008WFP. LG's unnamed, forthcoming model has a ratio of 10,000:1 however, surpassing in some circumstances the performance of dedicated HDTV sets. The monitor is in fact partly intended for watching movies, though its size is unclear from provided photos.

LG has disclosed little else about the display except to say it uses the company's Digital Fine Contrast technology. It also uses highly stylized aesthetics, particularly in its stand, which is glossy and tilts far enough back to viewed from directly above. [via T3]
