EPI, the technology company and brand license partner for Philips monitors, has announced the new Philips Momentum 43" 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor (436M6VBPAB), the first HDR1000 monitor with the new Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR 1000 Certification.
The Momentum 436M6 features Quantum Dot Color and DisplayHDR 1000 for a wider range of more accurate colors - especially dark reds and greens - that stay crisp and clear even in bright light. The monitor supports a peak brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m2. That means is should get as bright as some mid- to higher-end TVs at its peak. Philips says the monitor won't always run at 1,000 nits - it says the Momentum 436M6 will sit around 720 nits with typical use. In addition, it
utilizes local dimming.
The monitor is not capable of native 10-bit colors, either, instead opting for 8-bit colors with 2-bit dithering.
DisplayHDR is the display industry's first fully open standard specifying HDR quality. This standard spans across three performance tiers: DisplayHDR 400 (baseline), 600 (mid-range) and 1000 (high-end). These specifications are established using eight specific parameter requirements and associated test 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.
The Momentum 436M6 also uses Ambiglow technology. This technology enlarges the screen by creating an immersive halo of light around the outside of the screen. It uses a fast internal processor to analyze the incoming image content and continuously adapts the color and brightness of the emitted light to match the image. Users can adjust the ambience to their liking.
With its 4K UHD resolution, the Momentum 436M6 can take advantage of MultiView technology. MultiView enables active dual connect so that you can work with multiple devices like PC and Notebooks simultaneously. It's easy to watch a live football feed from a set-top box on one side, while playing a gaming console on the other.
There are also two USB 3.0 ports on board, along with single connector ports for USB-C 3.1, HDMI 2.0, DisplayPort 1.2, and Mini DisplayPort 1.2.
The Philips Momentum 436M6 will be available later this summer for $999.99.
