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.

    Last couple of TV I've setup have done 1:1 pixel mapping. I think default overscan on LCD displays is going the way of the dodo.
  • ayunatsume - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    Include the signal processing. Monitors are supposed to display 1:1 the data as faithful as possible. High refresh rates need to be attained without sacrificing display quality and faithfulness. TVs are meant for entertainment use so sources are displayed with enhancements (added saturations, sureal sharpening, Smoothmotion or whatever the brand adds on) or may have reductions in data (e.g. 4:2:2) as compensation for performance.

    This is like saying Audio Technica and Sennheiser monitor and reference headphones are for studio and production use (having the sounds as faithful to source) while Beats headphones skews the audio to what their target audience likes.

    On the subject of overscan, its typically not done anymore, but sometimes is still kinda there as they do some post-processing to make the videos 'smoother' aside from deinterlacing and what not. Think Premiere's Warp Stabilizer. But plain overscan now? lol

    Unfortunately you would be surprised how many recent TVs still default to Overscan in certain preset settings, and sometimes its not even obvious how to defeat it.

    I haven't run into this in the last 10 years, setting up my own TVs or those of my family (5 in total). Not saying it doesn't exist, I just haven't seen it. As an option, yes. As a hidden feature enabled by default and devious to disable, no. :D

    360 W? I thought we won't see these numbers after good old days of Plasma.
  • Death666Angel - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    I wasn't earning any money when plasma TVs were a thing, so I don't know much about them but the generalities. What would be the size and brightness of a 360W consuming plasma TV?
  • Death666Angel - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    And just for reference, considering my 42" CCFL LCD TV (2009 era) warmed up my living room considerably, I thinkg it generated a few hundred watt as well.

    All you need to know about plasma is that it looked good but not for long. They broke down, frequently.
  • Makaveli - Sunday, March 17, 2019 - link

    For first gen plasma's sure.

    My 2012 plasma doesn't use 300+ watts.

    Standard power 133.58 Watts
    Calibrated power 264.46 Watts

    TVs have tuners. If it doesn't have a tuner, it's a monitor.
