LG revealed it will shortly demo a 4K display that assists workers in retaining an ergonomically friendly position by automatically changing itself based on the user’s placement.
The company stated it will showcase the UltraFine Display Ergo AI 32UQ890 at IFA 2022 in Berlin from September 2 to 6. The display was initially unveiled at CES 2022 earlier this year.
The monitor derives its name from the fact that it interprets a user’s eye level using AI through an inbuilt camera. It collects and analyzes video frames using an AI algorithm, and then uses a neural processing unit (NPU) to adjust the screen’s height by up to 6.3 inches (160 mm) and tilt by up to 20 degrees forward or backward.
According to an LG spokesman, the monitor does not employ deep learning. There are three auto-adjustment options to choose from. LG stated it would demonstrate AI Motion, which adjusts the monitor when it detects a change in eye level.
According to LG’s statement, the function prevents users from remaining in a single position for too long or drifting into poor posture over time, most likely due to the use of the other two modes, Continuous Motion and Periodic Motion.
Some individuals may detest a monitor that shifts to compel you to adjust. Others may be too preoccupied with their job to modify their posture merely because their display has moved.
Will the 32UQ890 replace manual tweaks?
If the 32UQ890 can retain the top of the screen at user eye level and the display’s center 15 to 20 degrees below the horizontal view, the display automatically complies with ergonomic requirements from the US Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
However, we can’t help but notice how simple it is for most individuals to reach out and readjust their monitor, even one as small as a 31.5-inch LG. Sustaining a level view with the screen’s highest point is likely to be overlooked in the midst of intense work, but hand tweaks can account for other factors, such as a room’s illumination and the section of the screen the user’s focused on.
