LG introduces 32 inch 4K smart monitor with webOS

lg smart monitor

 

LG already makes some of the best monitors in the game for both productivity and gaming, especially that insane one that dynamically bends. It also makes some of the best televisions on the market — so much so that a lot of other television companies use an LG panel on their own models.

Today, LG is adding a new monitor to its lineup that looks to become not only your office’s monitor, but its television, too.

As reported by HomeKit News, the company has announced the LG Smart Monitor. The monitor, which exists under model number 32SQ780S, features a 32-inch 4K display and WebOS, the company’s operating platform that is usually found in its televisions. When you’re done using the monitor for work, WebOS will allow you to access all of the streaming services so you can watch movies and shows.

Now the company has released the LG Smart Monitor (model no. 32SQ780S) that not only also offers 4K screen resolution but includes AirPlay 2, like its predecessor, alongside WebOS. The screen size has also been bumped up from 27″ in the aforementioned ‘stand’ model, to a 32″ display. Whilst it’s ostensibly a monitor that would end up being used with a personal computer, it can be used as a regular 4K TV.

In addition to being a good base monitor for work and entertainment, it also comes with HDMI, USB-A, and even USB-C, so you can hook almost anything up to it.

The monitor comes complete with not only 2 HDMI ports – one of which eARC/ARC functionality – but also offers both three USB-A ports (one on the underside, two on the side of the monitor) and a USB-C port. Finally, it also provides hardwired connectivity, via an RJ45 port if you prefer not to use WiFi.

The monitor even comes packed with two five-watt stereo speakers, an integrated stand that’s made to attach to a desk, and that’s also able to rotate vertically. The only thing it feels like it doesn’t have is a built-in camera.

Details on its refresh rate have not been listed on its Amazon product page, but one thing it is likely not for is gaming as, with all of the productivity-focused features, the refresh rate is likely to sit at 60Hz.

Still, at $499, it is an incredible option for people looking to have a screen great for both productivity and entertainment. It could certainly end up on our list of the Best Computer Monitors of 2022.

      On Behalf of Premium Brand LG SIGNATURE, LG Introduces
      Immersive Performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL

      SEOUL, Nov. 28, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) brought together the world of art and technology with its ultra-premium brand, LG SIGNATURE, sponsoring two immersive performances at the LG Arts Center SEOUL in South Korea last week.
      One of the most sought-after performances in the Center’s opening festival, the series introduced Korean audiences to Yoann Bourgeois, renowned artistic director-choreographer and performance artist, for the first time. The performance series well marks LG’s time-old commitment to the cultivation of the arts beginning from the operation of the LG Arts Center SEOUL.
      After 22 years of operation, the LG Arts Center SEOUL re-opened its doors again to the public in October in a building designed by Japanese architectural virtuoso Tadao Ando. A testimony to LG’s devotion to the arts, the relocated Center boasts a spacious, new performance venue, the LG SIGNATURE Hall. The remarkable space has seating for 1,335 and is home to special performing arts programs from all over the world, including the Yoann Bourgeois series.
      Introduced to South Korea for the first time, Bourgeois, who has a diverse background that includes circus training, is a major figure in the global contemporary performing arts scene. His riveting performances celebrate the beauty of physical movement, blurring the boundary between acrobatics and dance and revealing a truly unique creative vision. Bourgeois’s artistry and innovative approach to his craft echo the philosophy of LG SIGNATURE, a brand whose home appliances seamlessly unite the best of art and technology.
      Proudly sponsored by LG on behalf of the LG SIGNATURE brand, the inspiring He Who Falls was performed by the National Choreographic Center of Grenoble under Bourgeois’s direction, with the late Frank Sinatra’s signature song, My Way, accompanying the dynamic movements of the performers. Opening 2, a short yet equally mesmerizing work, introduced audiences to the grace, power and presence that Bourgeois so effortlessly brings to the stage. As a part of LG SIGNATURE’s extensive customer experiences, select customers and clients were invited to attend both performances.
      During the Yoann Bourgeois series, visitors to LG Arts Center SEOUL were treated to an opportunity to enjoy the exclusive pop-up LG SIGNATURE exhibition and photo zone located in the LG SIGNATURE Hall lobby. Echoing the unique architectural design philosophy of Tadao Ando, the exhibition zone offered a glimpse into the best of LG SIGNATURE’s innovations, such as the Wine Cellar, InstaView Door-in-Door Refrigerator and OLED R TV. Meanwhile, the ultra-interactive photo zone featured memorable moments from the Yoann Bourgeois series for audiences to immerse in.
      “It was a great honor to introduce audiences in Korea to the artistic innovation of the inimitable Yoann Bourgeois,” said Lee Jeong-seok, head of LG Electronics Global Marketing Center. “Staying true to our philosophy, we will continue to partner with artists and institutions that share our vision of a better world through the power of art.”
      An innovative brand founded on the philosophy of bringing art and technology together as one, LG SIGNATURE will continue to support the best of the arts, worldwide. More on the brand’s high-profile art collaborations can be found on

      Hello,
      I have a fleet of 50 LG TVs, on which I want to propagate configuration parameters (volume, activation of sources...).
      How can I do this via API or other? Is there something planned for that? They are all on the same network and accessible from a server.
      I wish you a good day.
