Even if you’ve never heard of DevinSuperTramp, it’s a good bet your eyeballs have engaged one of his gorgeous videos of people at play.

Whether it’s parkour in the Shire, boogie boarding off wet rocks, parasailing, base jumping or squirrel suiting, you name the ill-advised activity, and this guy’s probably shot it — with glorious production values.

With 200 videos, 4 million YouTube subscribers and over 765 million views, he’s doing something right. One of the keys to his success is keeping on top of the latest, greatest gear.

LG’s UltraWide monitor is ‘seriously professional’


For Devin’s latest video, he followed a group of extreme pogo stick riders — yes, you read that right — and teamed up with LG to put the company’s new 21:9 UltraWide monitor to the professional test.

The wide, curved screen of the LG Ultrawide monitor allows Devin to shoot and edit in cinematic dimensions that even someone with his penchant for the theatrical won’t get with a standard monitor. Until now, he’s shot everything at 16:9 ratios, but with new camera technology able to capture 21:9, there’s finally a screen that can keep up.

“When we go out on location, we’re basically getting all the paints possible,” Devin says. “Then we get into the editing room, and that’s when we start painting and basically exposing that canvas we want to share with the rest of the world. We need the biggest canvas possible to tell those stories.”

Hooked on innovative technology

Devin’s already got a reputation as an innovator. As an early adopter of the Glidecam, he helped set the current standard for ultra-smooth shots in super-high definition. But part of staying ahead of the pack is never settling — and being the first to put new technology to work (hence his partnership with LG).

For professionals, the right tools make all the difference in the world. And for visual artists, the screen is key.

LG‘s UltraWide monitors are tailored to the needs of designers, photographers, producers and other creative pros who benefit from as much visual real estate as they can get. In addition to being curved and immersive, they sport fidelity that makes them as good for editing as they are for color-correcting images.

Keep an eye on DevinSuperTramp’s YouTube channel to see the fruits of his collaboration with LG.

And if you’d like to see his work in the immersive aspect ratio it was shot for — or to make your own videos at these dimensions — consider picking up one of LG’s UltraWide screens for yourself.
