Last week, reports hit the web about the new Samsung Odyssey G9 2021 and Acer EI491CRG9 32:9 displays. Both are ultra-wide screens with a 5K resolution. According to specifications posted on Chinese marketplace Taobao, these displays have a peak brightness of 2000 nits and have DisplayHDR 2000 certification.
VESA says there is no such thing as DisplayHDR 2000
Now VESA has issued a statement that the logos soon on Taobao are fake because there is no DisplayHDR 2000 certification, or at least not yet. The highest possible tier that exists is DisplayHDR 1400.
SAN JOSE, Calif. — During the past week, the Chinese retail website Taobao has listed two display products that have a VESA certified “DisplayHDR 2000” logo — an updated Samsung Odyssey G9 monitor as well as a new Acer EI491CRG9 monitor. In addition, several media outlets have reported that these monitors have received “DisplayHDR 2000” certification from the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). VESA wishes to set the record straight on this development. There is no “DisplayHDR 2000” tier in the VESA DisplayHDR specification and logo program at this time.
VESA has no knowledge of the origins of the DisplayHDR 2000 logo currently posted on these display listings on the Taobao website. However, VESA takes any misuse of our trademarks and logos seriously. VESA does not endorse the use of this logo unless and until a DisplayHDR 2000 tier has been officially announced by VESA, and any products claiming to meet this tier level have been officially certified by VESA and are listed on our website at https://displayhdr.org/certified-products/.
Until the displayhdr.org website displays DisplayHDR 2000, any such logo usage should be assumed to be unapproved and deceptive. -- VESA
