Philips Momentum monitor picks up HDR1000 certification

philips-momentum-monitorEPI is the brand license partner for Philips monitors, and the company has just announced the all-new Philips Momentum 43” 4K HDR Quantum Dot Monitor that will also go by the model number 436M6VBPAB. What makes this particular Philips Momentum model special? Well, it so happens to be the first HDR1000 monitor in the world that will be accompanied by the new Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR 1000 Certification. Of course, having certification is one thing, and we do hope that it will be able to live up to the hype.

 The Philips Momentum monitor will also boast of Ambiglow technology, where it would be able to deliver an incredibly immersive entertainment viewing experience regardless of whether you are watching a movie or engaged in a game. Boasting of Quantum Dot Color and DisplayHDR 1000, viewers will be able to enjoy a wider range of more accurate colors, especially when it it comes to dark reds and greens. These colors will remain crisp and clear even in bright light, offering a dramatically different visual experience right from the get go. Capable of achieving a peak brightness of up to 1,000 cd/m2, your eyes will be able to enjoy incomparable contrast and captivating color, as images come to life on the Philips Momentum with far greater brightness, at the same time featuring much deeper, more nuanced darks.

Not only that, DisplayHDR happens to be the display industry’s first fully open standard specifying HDR quality. This particular standard will span across a trio of performance tiers: DisplayHDR 400 (baseline), 600 (mid-range) and 1000 (high-end). Throwing in Ambiglow technology, one can also enjoy a new dimension when it comes to the entertainment viewing experience. Such innovative technology will enlarge the screen, resulting in an immersive halo of light that can be seen around the outside of the screen. A speedy internal processor will analyze the incoming image content, where it continuously adapts the color and brightness of the emitted light in order to match the image. Of course, at $999.99 a pop, users are able to adjust the ambience according to their preference.

Movie buffs, hardcore gamers, and basically anyone else who would like to take advantage of its 4K UHD resolution would do well to pick up the Philips Momentum 436M6 monitor.
