“Offering a completely new form factor for the monitor screen, the DualUp Ergo will enable users to multitask with ease when completing creative tasks.

Double the Screen, Twice the Experience

A multitasking powerhouse is ideal for all kinds of tasks such as content creation and coding, LG DualUp Ergo monitor features a Nano IPS display with a unique 16:18 aspect ratio to enhance efficiency. The innovative Square Double QHD (2,560 x 2,880) resolution monitor offers the same screen real estate as two 21.5-inch displays and has a vertical split view function that lets users see more in one glance, keeping a single monitor footprint with all information in one area, perfect for working from home in an efficient manner.

Stunning Image Quality

The 27.6-inch SDQHD (2,560 x 2,880, 16:18 aspect ratio) Nano IPS display supports a wider colour spectrum, 98 percent of DCI-P3 colour gamut and offers vibrant colour reproduction with the ability to display HDR10 content clearly. The DualUp Ergo also features auto brightness control whereby the sensor measures the ambient light in the surrounding environment and adjusts the screen brightness accordingly. Furthermore, the LG DualUp Ergo monitor features a response time of 5ms, with a 1000:1 contrast ratio and a brightness of 300 nits.

Enhanced Connectivity for Productivity 

Amplifying the multitasking experience, the LG DualUp Ergo allows users to control the on-screen content from two separate computers with the picture-by-picture feature.

Additionally, the monitor includes multiple connectivity solutions (Source PBP5), including two HDMI ports, one upstream USB-C, and two downstream USB Type-C™. The ports enable charging (up to 90W) while also displaying connectivity at the same time.
