Next month at CES, LG will be demonstrating some new monitors. One that really caught my eye is a new offering called the “DM92″ which offers mere 1mm bezels on the top and sides, making it an ideal candidate for multi-screen setups like NVidia’s 3-monitor 3D Vision gaming setup.
The DM92 series showcases a premium design by employing the slim bezel of LG’s technology- and design-driven CINEMA SCREEN whose aesthetic superiority is accompanied by the lustrous chrome stand. During the monitor TV’s attractive 27-inch display, users can access files on their PC, play games or just chill and watch theirfavorite TV show
I can’t find any mention of the 1mm bezel in the Press Release, and no mention of price either. Guess we’ll have to wait until next month to see what really materializes.

Do you have $36,000 laying around? Do you not mind paying $1000 per inch for screen real-estate? Do you need a computer monitor that offers such extreme resolution that you can see Duke’s individual hair follicles? Then Eiko has just the display for you coming out this September, a massive 4Kx2K monitor. Equivalent to 4 standard 1080p monitors stacked 2 by 2, this reminds me much of the old IBM T221 monitor. Hopefully this one will fare better.

How many monitors do you need to boost productivity? That is the topic of an editorial by Clay Johnson over at InfoVegan.com. He argues that it is the number of pixels that matters, not the number of monitors.
My take: there’s an optimal number of pixels you need to complete the tasks you need to complete. Worry about that number, not the number of monitors you have. That optimal number, for the vast majority of people is about 2500×1400.
Personally, I disagree. There are many instances when having multiple monitors can boost productivity. Currently I have finished writing and evaluating several proposals in my line of work. I could tell a drop off in productivity when I moved from my dual 30″ Dell monitors at work (which is 5120×1600 for those keeping count), to my single 1920×1200 monitor at home, to my laptop. I could still accomplish the work, it just took a lot more window switching. The same thing can be said for switching between 3D Studio Max and Adobe After Effects. If you find yourself switching windows a good bit, then your productivity could be increased by adding monitors or going with a high resolution monitor.
On the other hand, if all you are doing is just two windows at a time (for example, email and web browsing), then you will not see much of a gain in productivity by adding more monitors.
Finally, there is the use of multiple monitors for gaming, as in the image to the upper right. I am all for it.

Here’s something I’m definitely going to check out at SIGGRAPH: Alioscopy’s “No-Glasses” 3D Displays in the Autodesk Booth.
At SIGGRAPH this year, in the Autodesk booth (Booth # 2201), Alioscopy USA will be answering both calls to build a community of artists to deliver new 3D autostereoscopic content and autostereoscopic “no-glasses” technology. As this market takes off faster than Mr. Fredricksen’s house in the Pixar 3D-Stereoscopic summer smash “UP”, Alioscopy is the leader in autostereoscopic 3D technology. Come see (and almost feel) the pop-out effects one can experience without glasses on the Alioscopy HD LCD display.
