What is a 32:9 aspect ratio?

The 32:9 aspect ratio is a super ultrawide ratio often used to display double 16:9 wide landscape images, videos, and screens. This ratio is an alternative to using two standard 16:9 monitors side by side and provides an immersive experience when playing video games or watching super wide cinematic videos.

Example 1

LG 49WL495C is one of the most popular Dual Quad-HD (5120 x 1440) monitors with a 32:9 aspect ratio.[1] It's the perfect replacement for dual 27-inch 16:9 QHD monitors, provides more flexibility and is excellent for creative tasks like photo and video editing.

Example 2

Samsung 49" CHG9 QLED Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor

In 2017, Samsung Electronics unveiled its inaugural super ultra-wide QLED gaming monitor, recognized as the world's largest gaming monitor. This monitor measures 49 inches and offers an IMAX-style cinematic viewing experience.[2]

The monitor boasts a super ultra-wide 32:9 HDR (High Dynamic Range) with a 3840 x 1080 resolution and an 1800R curvature. These features combine to create an immersive gameplay experience that provides users with a seamless gaming experience, a broader field of view, and more excellent depth perception.

The standard format for aspect ratio is 32:9 or W:H, with W being the width and H being the height of an image, screen, or container. In the digital space, the unit of measurement is pixels. You can pronounce the aspect ratio as "thirty-two by nine" or "thirty-two to nine."

FAQs

How do I calculate the 32:9 aspect ratio?

The 32:9 aspect ratio is a super ultrawide screen or image format that proportionally contains thirty-two units horizontally for every nine vertically. It can be calculated by dividing the width by height and getting a value of 3.56 or 3.55556.

For example, the ratio between the width and height of the Dual Ultrawide HD (2560 x 720), Dual Ultrawide Full HD (3840 x 1080), and Dual Ultrawide 4K UHD (7680 x 2160) resolutions are equal to 3.56.
