The new 4K monitor offers up to 1,000 nits of brightness.
EPI has announced its latest Philips branded product, the Momentum 43-inch 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor. The display is the world's first monitor to receive VESA DisplayHDR 1000 Certification.
"As with any new technology there can be confusion out there regarding HDR specs and benefits. VESA's new DisplayHDR standard will make monitor shopping easier by offering consumers a comparable standard to judge HDR picture performance between monitors," stated Chris Brown, Philips Monitors Global Marketing Manager, TPV. "We are very excited to launch the world's first DisplayHDR 1000 monitor, the Philips Momentum 43-inch 4K Display. DisplayHDR 1000 level of picture performance will offer a more intense gaming and entertainment experience. The contrast and color really bring action scenes alive, like we’ve never seen before."
The monitor uses a 43-inch panel with 4K UHD resolution and quantum dot technology, enabling wide color gamut capabilities. HDR support is included as well with DisplayHDR 1000 Certification ensuring a peak brightness level of up to 1,000 nits. The DisplayHDR designation is certified based on eight parameters and corresponding tests, including three peak luminance tests, two contrast measurement tests, color testing of the BT.709 and DCI-P3 color gamuts, bi-depth requirement test, and a HDR response performance test.
In addition, the display features Ambiglow technology to create a halo of light around the outside of the screen for enhanced immersion with movies and games. The light's color and brightness are adapted to match the content being watched, and users can also adjust the ambience to their liking. Finally, the unit also offers support for MultiView technology, allowing customers to connect two sources at the same time for multi-tasking. For instance, a user could watch a movie from a connected media player on one side of the screen and play a game from a connected PC on the other side simultaneously.
EPI's Philips branded Momentum 436M6 is set to launch later this summer for an MSRP of $999.99.
