JVC Professional will demonstrate its new PS-840UD Professional Series ProVérité 4K 84-inch LCD monitor at the 2013 NAB Show in Las Vegas, Nev. With a native screen resolution of 3840×2160 – four times the resolution of full HD – and 60p display capability, it is the world’s largest professional-grade 4K monitors
With a gamma profile specifically tailored for home theater, the RS-840UD features an IPS LCD panel with 120Hz refresh rate and 10 bit color depth housed in a slim bezel with a 178-degree viewing angle. ELED Illuminated, it produces vibrant, natural images from a variety of HD and 4K input sources. The RS-840UD will be marketed as a complementary addition to JVC’s Reference Series projection systems sold through CEDIA custom installers.
The PS-840UD was developed for business and industry use, command and control applications, signage, and public display. It has the same features as the RS-840UD, but adds compatibility with the Intel open pluggable specification (OPS) for digital signage devices. Supported by JVC Professional’s technical support team, the PS-840UD 4K panel is the industry’s first large screen 4K panel designed specifically for rigorous commercial use. It will be marketed through JVC Professional Products’ authorized Pro Video resellers.
“4K is destined to become the new ‘HD,’ and JVC is excited to be at the forefront of introducing this exciting new display technology to the marketplace,” said Lon Mass, vice president of JVC's Professional Video Division. “While other 4K products are targeting high-end niche markets, we have positioned these new monitors to bring 4K into mainstream use for home and business.”
The two new 4K flat panel displays demonstrate a growing breadth and depth of 4K technologies offered by JVC. At CEDIA 2011, JVC stunned the market by announcing four 4K precision D-ILA projection systems, followed by the world’s first handheld 4K camcorder, the GY-HMQ10U, announced at the 2012 NAB Show. The GY-HMQ10U remains the only 4K camera capable of live 4K output.
The RS-840UD and PS-840UD are each priced under $20,000.
