Lenovo Announces New ThinkVision LT2934z Panoramic Display@ 2013/09/04
Core features include an AH-IPS panel, full HD webcam, dual array microphone, and stereo speakers. It also has picture-in-picture functionality. The backlight is rated at 100% sRGB gamut, so perhaps not ideal for professionals but great for “the rest of us”. The native resolution is 2560x1080, with the normal 178 degree viewing angles that IPS provides. Adjustment options include tilt (-5°/+25°) and swivel (+/-45°), as well as 110mm of height adjustment (if I’m reading the spec sheet properly – it says “110mm Lift”). Video connectivity consists of VGA, HDMI 1.4, MHL, DL-DVI, and DisplayPort 1.2. The LT2934z also includes two USB 3.0 ports (one with BatteryCharge 1.2, so it’s always powered) and two additional USB 2.0 ports. The display weight 18.3 lbs. (8.3kg) and measures 26.5”x11.2” (673mm x 284mm). Also included are dedicated VoIP keys for mute, pick up/drop call, and volume.
The LT2934z is scheduled for availability starting in October 2013, with pricing starting at $799. That’s $100 more than the LG 29EA93, but hopefully with the extra features making it a worthwhile upgrade.
