“The curve” is taking over CES 2015, but while curve technology may be the next big thing for TVs, HP is among the big-name manufacturers looking to bring it to PC monitors.

The newly announced HP Envy 34c (also known as the Z34c) desktop monitor will boast a 3440 x 1440 resolution and a 21:9 aspect ratio with a high-contrast VA panel, that is curved to allow for the optimal viewing experience. It also boasts 6 Watt DTS-certified built-in speakers.

HP stated that the 34-inch display will feature minimal reflectiveness and a panel response of 8 milliseconds along with low motion blur, making it ideal for PC gamers.

The company also highlighted an attractive picture-in-picture mode for the screen, which allows users to beam content from other computers or smartphones to the monitor.

Aside from showing off the more visually pleasing aspects of the monitor, HP also highlighted the ease with which spreadsheets can be developed using it which, while not taking full advantage of the might of the display, shows that the monitor is also well-equipped to handle the more mundane, day-to-day tasks that it will contend with.

The monitor will be made available in April for $999, with HP also working on a 27-inch model that will retail for a more affordable $399.
