Phillips launches world's first HDR 1000 Certified Monitor

Phillips just launched the world's first monitor with the HDR 1000 Certification. The monitor is able to deliver an incredible 1,000 nits of peak luminance and 97.6% DCI-P3 thanks to the Quantum Dot enhancement film technology inside. 

According to reviewers, the monitor will cost about $1,000 when it launches later this summer.

We're always excited to see new Quantum Dot products hitting the market so we've summed up some of the most interesting comments here

  • arsTechnica's Jeff Dunn said, "HDR isn’t just about sheer brightness—it needs a wider color gamut and greater color depth as well. Philips says the monitor will utilize its 'Ultra Wide-Color" tech to provide that wider color gamut, along with quantum dot tech that is said to particularly boost 'dark reds and greens.'"
  • According to Trusted Reviews' Edward Chester, "[The Philips 436M6VBPAB] also produces the full range of colours required by the HDR 1000 standard, with it hitting 97.6% DCI-P3 colour space coverage thanks to its quantum dot technology."
  • Digital Trend's Kevin Parrish explained that "...the [Philips 436M6VBPAB] is based on quantum dot technology. That means it relies on nano-sized semiconductor crystals that generate pure, monochromatic blue, green, and red light. They also provide a higher peak brightness than your typical pixel on an LCD screen." 
  • Over at TechRadarKevin Lee said, "This could be the brightest gaming monitor we've ever seen"
  • Venture Beat's Jeff Grubb said, "Philips is the first to deliver the highest level of HDR support."
  • DisplayDaily said, "Thanks to the narrow wavelength Quantum Dot sources for red, green and blue, these primary colours are portrayed with more saturation, increasing the vibrance and colour accuracy."
