The first model in the Philips Momentum line to debut 436M6VBPAB with a huge 43" VA panel and 4K UHD resolution. The maximum brightness of the 436M6VBPAB is 1000 cd/m², the color gamut complies with the BT.709 standard by 100% and the DCI-P3 standard by 97,6%, and thanks to the color depth of 8 bits + 2 bits FRC (Frame Rate Control) provides an indicator of 1,07 billion colors. The novelty is also the first monitor in the world that complies with the VESA DisplayHDR 10001 standard. It also supports Quantum Dot technology, which replaces traditional LED backlight options. This innovative solid-state technology delivers vibrant, dynamic colors: Quantum Dot narrow-wavelength sources for red, green, and blue deliver richer, more accurate primary colors. That being said, the 436M6VBPAB is a true high-end gaming monitor that it lives up to with Low Input Lag and SmartResponse modes for faster visual feedback, and AdaptiveSync for smoother gameplay.
Some gamers prefer desktop computers, special gaming chairs and use mainly monitors with a diagonal of 24-32 inches, which they place at a short distance from themselves (less than 1 m). Others choose a game console connected to a large TV, while they themselves sit comfortably on a sofa or chair at a greater distance from the display. Console game sales in 2017 ranked second in terms of volume in the global gaming market with 29%, according to NewZoo. Unfortunately, most TVs weren't built for gaming and therefore aren't well-suited to displaying fast-paced, interactive images. As a result, halos appear around the characters, the picture is blurred, and other artifacts appear that annoy the players.
The Momentum series aims to correct this situation and fill a gap in the Philips monitor product line. The reason for its creation is the desire to shift the focus to console games and other entertainment that is designed for large screens, providing the end user with the best innovations in this area. The Momentum series fulfills all requirements for entertainment monitors and guarantees exceptional image quality, especially when it comes to small spaces.
The 436M6VBPAB is a stylish, oversized monitor with ultra-thin bezels and a futuristic slim aluminum stand. It is equipped with Ambiglow backlighting, which enhances the effect of the image on the screen, illuminating the area around the panel. A fast built-in processor analyzes the picture on the screen and adapts the color and brightness of the backlight to complement the image. This technology will be especially in demand when watching movies and sports, as well as in games.
The debut 436M6VBPAB features a fast 43-inch VA panel with UHD CrystalClear 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels) with an excellent GtG response time of just 4ms and support for SmartResponse and Adaptive Sync. Philips-exclusive SmartResponse technology avoids ghosting in fast-paced games and movies and minimizes lag. The latest versions of current generation consoles are capable of delivering 4K and HDR (High Dynamic Range) resolutions in select games, in which case the 436M6VBPAB is the perfect choice. With Adaptive Sync support for AMD 436M6VBPAB GPUs, it is also very well suited for everyday entertainment such as watching movies, TV series or playing games. Adaptive Sync adjusts the frame rate when rendering images to match the refresh rate of the display. This helps to avoid tearing due to framerate inconsistencies in games. To speed up the response, the 436M6VBPAB also uses the Low Input Lag mode, in which the signal bypasses most of the internal processing in the display and the total input delay is halved.
At the same time, the 436M6VBPAB is a truly versatile and practical model, like the rest of Philips monitors. The MultiView function allows you to display two sources simultaneously in Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture modes, providing multitasking. Pleasing variety and connectivity: DisplayPort 1.2 ports, Mini DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0 and USB-C. The latter provides not only the transmission of a video signal, but also allows you to charge devices and transfer data using a single cable. The built-in USB 3.0 hub further expands versatility with the ability to connect peripherals.
The 436M6VBPAB is equipped with two high-quality 7W speakers with DTS Sound™ support, which ensures not only visual but also sonic immersion.
The Momentum series is designed for situations where the monitor has to be placed at a considerable distance from the user. For convenience, the 436M6VBPAB comes with a remote control that works with other HDMI connected monitors/devices thanks to Philips EasyLink technology.
