Parsons’ creative students can now make the freely experience of UltraWide monitors.
Creative professionals appreciate the benefits of a big screen with a natural color representation. According to a study by the University of Utah, using a larger monitor can help you to save approximately 2.5 hours each day. Whether designers, photographers or architects, most creatives have to work with different applications at the same time. A bigger screen size allows for seamless multitasking through several windows, images and files. In order to support the creative minds of tomorrow, the people at LG have started a program in 2016 called ‘LG UltraWide Academy’. The program provides LG UltraWide monitors to world-class educational institutes that train future creative professionals. Please read more below the following image.
They started last year with The New School’s Parsons School for Design in New York City providing a range of LG 34” Class 21:9 UltraWide Monitors to their classrooms and labs with the objective to support Parsons’ students with a freely experience. The curved ultra wide screens offer an optimal work experience! Thanks to the enormous screen size that allows for seamless multitasking through different windows and applications, students are able to handle complex tasks up to 52% faster.
LG’s high-end UltraWide monitors offer an incredibly accurate color representation. With additional features such as On-Screen Control, 14 different Screen Split functions as well as the curved design that allows a more ergonomic work experience, the screens make multitasking much easier and improve productivity. Feel free to read what some of Parsons’ students say about the monitors below the following image.
“Personally I think creative professionals would definitely benefit from it. The monitor is basically the new drawing board, the color correction and what you see on screen should exactly be what you printed. And if you’re video editing, then there should be no lag whatsoever.” said Joe, an illustration alumni.
“It’s very wide and makes it easy to 3D model things or use Adobe Creative Suite, as the screen’s big enough to accommodate all the panels.” said Lorraine, a Product Design student.
Samuel, an Illustration student said “I think the 21:9 monitor is the future of screens putting yourself inside the screen as it curves around you. It’s user oriented. It’s ergonomic. This brings full immersion, the future of virtual reality.”
This year, LG is planning to partner with more leading design institutions including institutes for photography, film and design. Stay tuned!
