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.

    Well, I would generalize that a bit more. Tuner is nice and all, but I know so many people that don't use those parts at all anymore.

    So what I would say: The ability to display its own content, no matter if its from a tuner, or some apps that get it from the Internet, be it simple IPTV or Netflix etc.

    $3,447 for 86" TV? Wow, that's pretty good!

    It has been like that since 1080p. I bought a 4K TV as a monitor for cheap and couldn't be happier

    DP. duh.

    Pixel Density 58.7 ppi 51.2 ppi

    That answers the question you posed. Case closed.

    At this point, Samsung is starting rolling freesync on their TV. Monitor will become more and more a niche.
  • HStewart - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    I don't believe freesync is that big of factor - both TV and monitors were both out before freesync.
  • HStewart - Saturday, March 16, 2019 - link

    Maybe for niche market of gamers - freesync is a requirement.

    Again, IntelStewart misses the point.
