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.

    I guess two main differences...
    1. Monitors are meant to be seen closer than TV's, So Monitors must have stricter requirements to help with eye strains.
    2. TV's have a lot of post-processing to do which adds a lot of latency. While monitors have this also they tend to do it either faster or less of it. TV's now have a gaming mode (even some monitors do) which help lessens the post-processing to have much less latency.

    But there's also other stuff, TV's usually are tailored for low refresh rates after all boradcasts and movies have used 24 & 30fps for a long time, when faster refresh rates came, it was just a post processing feature, the input was still limited to 24 & 30fps.. later newer TV's supported faster like 60fps and 120fps input. My TV can do 120hz internally, while it has HDMI 1.4, it's limited to 1080p 60Hz input only.

    Another swing and a miss. Wish the TV input board/scalar designers would crawl out from under the rock they have been living under producing out of touch designs. Hey at least they got the memo about displayport from 5 years ago.

    Here in Thailand, every monitor that has HDMI input is TV (by the custom's standard).

    The major think separating a "monitor" from TV is ability working 24x7 over significant amount of time into an industrial configurations (included multi-monitor setup). TV is not designed for that, so there is no warranty.

    If you want high quality overdrive and low response time/input lag you go for GSync anyway.
    Might as well just take a normal one if you look for a Freesync one.

    I also like how they dont mention if its edge-lit or direct-lit. Just like with monitors (which turn out to be mostly edgelit, which is far inferior and causes other problems like BLB)...

    Nevermind, they actually say its direct lit. But no dimming whatsoever?
