JapanNext 75 and 86-Inch 4K IPS HDR Monitors: What Separates TVs from Monitors, Anyhow?by Anton Shilov on March 15, 2019 4:00 PM EST
Just when you thought that NVIDIA-inspired 65-Inch Big Format Gaming Displays (BFGDs) were huge, JapanNext has rolled-out its new 75 and 86-inch monitors. The JN-IPS7500UHDR-KG and JN-IPS8600UHDR monitors are aimed mostly at multimedia enthusiasts who also need to get some work done, but both LCDs feature profiles for gaming too.
The 75-inch and 86-inch displays from JapanNext are based on an 8+2-bit IPS panel featuring a 3840×2160 resolution, 330 or 400 nits brightness, a 1200:1 contrast ratio, 178º viewing angles, a 4 ms response time, and a 60 Hz refresh rate. The monitors use a direct LED backlighting to ensure brightness uniformity. The screens are covered with a half-gloss coating.
JapanNext claims that the monitors support HDR, but there is no word whether they support HDR10 or other industry-standard transport methods. Meanwhile, firmware of the 75-inch and 86-inch displays feature profiles for 'standard', Games (genre depending), Movies, and Photos. To switch modes and make other adjustments, both monitors come with a remote. Unfortunately, it looks like the LCDs do not support AMD’s FreeSync technology, at least the manufacturer does not advertise the capability.
Since we are talking about displays aimed primarily at multimedia enthusiasts, they feature an extremely robust set of connectors to attach multiple devices. The JN-IPS7500UHDR-KG and JN-IPS8600UHDR monitors are equipped with one DisplayPort 1.2, one HDMI 2.0, two HDMI 1.4, and a D-Sub input (just in case someone wants to attach a Windows XP-based PC to an 85-incher to play games from the 1990s - Ed: Or a BMC-equipped server). There is also an S/PDIF optical connector, an audio input, a headphone output, and built-in 5W stereo speakers.
Since the displays are very large, they come equipped with TV stands that can barely adjust anything. Both LCDs also feature VESA mounts, but since the 75-inch and 86-inch displays weigh 40 and 56 kilograms respectively, it might be difficult to find an adjustable VESA wall mount for such monitors.

n0x1ous - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkMove over Nvidia? Really? these are 60hz and no adaptive refresh. Someone looking to buy a BFGD wouldn't even consider this.
rocky12345 - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkI get what you are saying here but most likely most people won't care about things like that all they see is 86" and go OMFG I want I want I want...it. Personally I would be ok with it mainly because I currently have a 60" Samsung 4K TV and also game on it & guess what it is 60Hz and works just fine. It has a PC mode that pretty much gets rid of any sort of lag. Yes it is only 60Hz but even with this I still kick butt in most online shooters when playing against probably people with 144Hz monitors. All I need is skill and a good gaming mouse set to 1000Hz and DPI at 1600-2400 and my reflexes take care of the rest.
edzieba - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkNo HDR either. 1200:1 advertised contrast is well down in the SDR range, and if they actually had FALD backlights that would be plastered in the marketing copy.
jajig - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - linkI agree the no adaptive refresh is an instant ignore.
hMunster - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - linkWouldn't that depend on the game? Not everything needs high refresh rates. These would be great for a flight simulator.
stanleyipkiss - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkDamn. I just bought a $3000 Samsung 75 inch-er. Would've gone for 86 inch for an extra $447...
ToTTenTranz - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkAt 400nits in that 86", you're probably better off with your Samsung. At least when watching proper HDR content.
DanNeely - Friday, March 15, 2019 - link"What Separates TVs from Monitors, Anyhow?"
Monitors don't default to resizing the input by 5-10% because Joe Sixpack thinks making the parts he sees bigger makes it look better than the equivalent panel showing a 100% scaled image?
lmcd - Friday, March 15, 2019 - linkMonitors don't include spyware integrated :)
jabber - Sunday, March 17, 2019 - linkAlso remote controls, optical outs, Dolby sound etc. etc. etc.
