Samsung's QLED gaming monitor industry's first to achieve VESA DisplayHDR™ certification2017.12.19
— CHG90 is the industry’s first display to be certified as DisplayHDR™ compliant —
Since its launch in August, Samsung’s CHG90 – the world’s largest QLED gaming monitor – has emerged as an industry innovator and pioneer. The monitor’s leadership position recently received further validation from the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA), who, following a rigorous testing procedure, confirmed that the CHG90 (along with the CHG70) exemplifies its DisplayHDR™ 600 performance standards and is the industry’s first display to be certified as DisplayHDR™ compliant.
Up until recently, there had been no standard specification for the HDR performance of PC monitors and laptop computer displays. But earlier this year, VESA, an international non-profit that sets and supports industry-wide interface standards for displays, established the DisplayHDR™ standard. The fully open standard specifies HDR quality, including luminance, color gamut, bit depth and rise time. It consists of three levels (DisplayHDRä 400, 600, 1000); specifically, the DisplayHDR™ 600 tier indicates that HDR content can be enjoyed in bright indoor lighting conditions.
When granting DisplayHDR™ 600 certification to the CHG90, VESA cited the monitor’s use of HDR to elevate contrast ratio (3,000:1), color accuracy and overall presentation vibrancy as an industry standard-setter. The certification further validates the CHG90’s ability to provide the optimal gaming and entertainment viewing environment, but is just the latest in a series of recent accolades for the monitor.
Several global technology media outlets and organizations have commemorated the display’s performance and presentation. Among them include Trusted Reviews’ Best Monitor of 2017 Award, which recognizes the “year’s best technologies, gadgets and innovations”; TechRadar’s Five-Star Review, which describes the CHG90 as “one of the most functionally distinct and visually impressive monitors” ever tested by the publication; and a CES 2018 Innovation Award for its outstanding design and engineering, immersive presentation and gamer-friendly features.
With an eye-catching yet practical design, exceptional image quality and flexible multi-program presentation capabilities, Samsung’s CHG90 continues to raise the bar for HDR monitors.
