$35,700 Monitor.. How about that..?

It’s going to be showcased at NAB very soon, but the sexily-named Eizo FDH3601 is very likely only going to be picked up by professionals with a specific need for the prowesses it achieves. It’s a 4k display, meaning it sports a resolution of 4,096 x 2,160 pixels. That’s the equivalent of four 1080p displays in one 36.4 inch frame.

The manufacturer says that the display delivers 100 percent sRGB coverage in color gamut as well as a “perfect smooth tone reproduction across the screen”. There is a 16-bit lookup table supporting up to 278 trillion colors. The maximum brightness is 700 cd/m2, the contrast ratio is 1,000:1 and the response time is 8 ms.

That’s a pretty nice display, one that’s already being sold in Japan for $35,700. So expect it to be somewhere in that vicinity once it hits American shores.
