Last week the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) organization reported that the work on the DisplayHDR standard was over. This standard defines the quality of HDR content, being rendered by a display. Today we already know the name of the first device, which has successfully passed the certification mentioned. It’s the 49-inch Samsung C49HG90 monitor, which meets all requirements for obtaining DisplayHDR 600 conformity marking.
To receive this certificate a display must offer the ultimate 600 cd/m² brightness, the 10-bit colour depth and cover at least 99 % of the BT.709 palette and 90 % of the DCI-P3 colour space.
Samsung C49HG90 features the 3840 x 1080 pixels resolution, 144 Hz refresh rate, 3000:1 static contrast, 600 cd/m² max brightness and 1 ms response time. Other specs include Quantum Dot backlighting as well as AMD FreeSync 2 support.
The Samsung C49HG90 estimated cost is $999.00.
