The company announced its A Series Trimaster EL monitors at NAB today, outing a 4,096 x 2,160 30-inch model as well as a 3,840 x 2160 56-inch display. Both panels boast of wide viewing angles and low color shift, promising accurate signal reproduction for industry professionals working with 4K content. No word yet on pricing, but professionals can look forward to upgrading sometime in May 2013.

Are we finally going to see some higher res monitors? It pains me how $400 10" tablets are on par with the most expensive $1000 monitors when it comes to resolution. The mobile industry is advancing while the computer display industry is stagnant. The past decade hasn't seen enough of a evolution in display resolutions. Maybe this is going to change.

56" is too big unless it has like a 1000ppi. I want 4K in a 27" chassis that uses PLS panel tech.

I can't wait for budget high-res monitors, a cheap 21" at 1440p or something would be right up my alley in the next year or two biggrin.gif

I'm not interested in the 56" myself. I'll be eyeing the 30" though. Unless its priced like their 4k TV's

AMVA would work too. AMVA IIRC has pretty good black depth and contrast levels.

Pretty pointless for gaming. Most games will only be 1920x1080, 5760x1080 compatible anyways.

And the wonderful 2 grand check for 2 titans in order to run any game above 20-30 fps (lows) at that resolution. Man, I wish they started to develop proper gaming monitors for the rest of us.

Well, yes and no. Handhelds benefit from the super high PPI because they're meant to be used at much closer viewing distances than your standard monitor or TV. 27 inch 1440p monitors can actually pass "retina" standards at a viewing distance around 32 inches for people with 20/20 vision.

I'm curious how much benefit we'll really see from these screens. Windows likely won't work well at the native resolution since text and icons would be tiny, so it would have to be vectorized and upscaled like with the MacBook Pros. But of course then you don't get the benefit of the added screen real estate, and may not even notice the extra sharpness unless you sit really close to your screen.

I'd love to finally see one of these in person!
