Last week, LG launched new high-end monitors in Australia, with iTWire colleague Ray Shaw writing up the launch in his article entitled ‘eSports is big business – so are monitors.

Ray has more detail including specs and pricing, so it's well worth your time to read his article to get that info on the very cool feature sets, which is just a click away here.

Professional eSports athletes, LG Dire Wolves, were in attendance at the launch to showcase the features of the new Ultrawide and Ultra HD range.

Nathan Mott, founder of Dire Wolves, said: “The gaming industry is bigger than ever, and we are always looking for the best equipment to train and play on. LG is a leader in this space, giving us the competitive advantage with their latest range of monitors.”

Russ Prendergast, marketing manager for LG Electronics Australia, comments: “The eSports industry is worth around $1 billion and is continuing to grow. Therefore we need to be ahead of the game, providing the latest technology in our monitor range to meet the demands of professional-gamers as well as the at home enthusiasts.
