The PC monitor dreams are made of

1080P killer!

"Ummm, holy #&$@!!!"

That's likely to be the first thing that enters your mind upon glancing over the specs of this monster; we're talking a whopping 56" LCD monitor capable of outputting a resolution of 3480x2160. That my friends is some SERIOUS desktop real estate right there, leaving 1080P for shame.

The mob behind this extremity are known as Astro Systems who aim the DM-3400 mainly towards digital cinema and broadcast studio clients. Connectivity wise it sports four seperate channels of DVI and HD-SDI inputs for quad-view goodness along with independent contrast, gamma and brightness adjustments for each channel.

It's probably just as well that the pricetag whacked onto this incredible monitor hasn't been made known to us, and I'm certain the people out there seriously considering getting one are in a position not to even care what that pricetag may be.

More info at studiodaily.

Targeting screening rooms and broadcast studios, Astro Systems has introduced a 56-inch 4K x 2K liquid crystal display monitor that offers 3840 x 2160 resolution and the support for both DVI-D (4 channels) and HD-SDI (4 channels/Dual Link) signals. The new DM-3400 monitor offers a versatile alternative to the traditional 4K x 2K projection environment, handling RGB 4:4:4 signals as well as four input channels for a quad display view.
