The new Philips 436M6VBPAB is the world’s first display to achieve VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000 standard
MMD, the tech company and brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces its recently launched Philips 436M6VBPAB was confirmed by Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) as the first display to be officially certified for the DisplayHDR 1000 specification, capable of delivering a profoundly new viewing experience, thanks to striking brightness, deeper contrast and vibrant colours.
The new Philips Momentum Line has already been honoured with the Computex d & I Award 2017 by IF and Red Dot award: Product Design 2017 for its innovative design. It now proudly includes among its achievements the world-renowned VESA DisplayHDR 1000 and UHDA certification.
The opportunity was provided by the announcement of VESA’s DisplayHDR Test-Pro, a new test tool that enables users to validate display capabilities, including brightness, colour and contrast performance of laptop and desktop High Dynamic Range (HDR) displays, based on VESA's high performance compliance testing specifications.
To date, nearly a dozen displays have been certified under the new spec across the three performance levels (DisplayHDR 400, 600 and 1000) and released to the market.
Parameters requirements comprise three peak luminance tests, two contrast measurement tests, colour testing of the BT.709 and DCI-P3 colour gamuts, bit-depth requirement test and HDR response performance test. Only Philips 436M6VBPAB achieved maximum tier so far, by satisfying requirements of 8+2bit, BT. 709 99%, DCI-P3 90%, Brightness (Center Peak) 1000 nits, Brightness (Full Frame) 600 nits and Dark 0.05 nits.
