An international not-for-profit corporation, Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) is led by a Board of Directors representing a voting membership comprised of over 200 corporate members around the world. With a vision for continual growth in technical standards development, VESA provides a forum to develop, promote and support open standards for the display industry by setting industry-wide interface definition for displays.
VESA DisplayHDR Standard
You probably already know that High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays are a step above Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) displays due to better contrast and color representation. In short, HDR displays deliver visuals that are more vibrant with true-to-life colors. As such, it is no surprise that HDR has gained interest for a wide range of media applications, from movies to gaming, photography and videography. Due to rampant use of the HDR logo, VESA created the display industry's first open standard with transparent testing methodology specifying HDR quality and performance, to enable consumers to obtain valuable, accurate information on display performance.
So, what exactly is DisplayHDR?
As defined by VESA, DisplayHDR is an open standard with eight specific parameter requirements that specify HDR quality, encompassing color gamut, bit depth, luminance, and rise time. Currently, there are three distinct DisplayHDR performance tiers which focuses on liquid crystal displays (LCDs): DisplayHDR 400 (baseline), DisplayHDR 600 (mid-range), and DisplayHDR 1000 (high-end). As innovations in PC display performance develop, additional tiers will be added in due time. Basically, DisplayHDR 400 is the first genuine entry point for HDR while DisplayHDR 600 targets professional high-performance monitors. On the other hand, DisplayHDR 1000 also targets content-creator PC monitors.
VESA-certified DisplayHDR 1000
As mentioned, DisplayHDR 1000 not only targets professional or enthusiast-level laptops as well as high-performance monitors, it also targets content-creator PC monitors to offer outstanding local dimming twice more than DisplayHDR600 and high-contrast HDR, with peak luminance of 1000 cd/m², or three times more than conventional displays. Compared to DisplayHDR 400, there is a significantly visible increase in color gamut, too.
The Philips Momentum 42.51” monitor is the first monitor in the world to achieve the new VESA DisplayHDR 1000 Certification.
What makes Philips 4K HDR monitor 436M6VBPAB offer an incredibly immersive viewing experience is not merely its DisplayHDR 1000 performance but the winning combination that includes Quantum Dot Color technology. With its fuller palette of captivating colors, and contrast from the brightest whites to the darkest blacks, visuals come alive for a more intense gaming and entertainment experience, like never witnessed before.
A unique viewing dimension
In addition, Philips' Ambiglow technology adds a unique viewing dimension via an innovative technology that seems to enlarge the display screen size by creating an immersive halo of light to surround the display. Using a fast processor to analyze the visual on screen and continuously adapting to its color and brightness to emit matching light, Ambiglow extends and expands the action on screen for an immersive ambience that's best suited when watching movies or sports and gaming. It certainly gets one into the moment.
Meanwhile, its 4K resolution translates to sharper, crystal-clear visuals with greater detail and more life-like, as though seen in the real world. With the combination of both innovation, Philips 4K HDR monitor 436M6VBPAB easily stands out among its competitors.
A breeze at multi-tasking
Philips 4K HDR monitor 436M6VBPAB boasts 42.51” of screen real estate to accommodate extreme entertainment pleasures, or boost work productivity. Featuring MultiView technology, its active dual connect allows for working with multiple devices simultaneously. Moreover, the expansive 4K display enables users to display up to four systems on that one screen, all in Ultra HD glory, without compromising on resolution. Multi-tasking is indeed a breeze with MultiView, and a dream come true for games who are hungry for even more entertainment. This multi-purpose monitor adapts to the moment, whether it is for work or play.
