The display quality authority VESA has announced the latest standard against which PC and display OEMs can pit their new devices. DisplayHDR True Black 600 is rated to call for even higher luminance than its predecessors, and is thus pitched as a new badge of excellence in panels made of material such as OLED.

The Video Electronics Standards Association (or VESA) touts itself as a go-to in visual tech quality ratings and certifications. It has launched a new addition to its arsenal of the same, slated to join existing examples such as DisplayHDR 600 and DisplayHDR True Black 400, yet to represent a new level above them.

This new DisplayHDR True Black 600 standard is based on VESA's current battery of idealized high dynamic range (HDR) specs, and also calls for advancements derived from the potential of cutting-edge display tech. Therefore, it is specifically geared towards emissive panel types such as OLED, and may also account for a future in which microLED rises as an emerging alternative to this current high-end option.

VESA has announced that there are 3 devices that have already passed this new DisplayHDR True Black 600 certification, all of which are from Asus: the VivoBooks Pro 14, Pro 14X and 15 OLED. Therefore, the OEM might start hyping them in terms of this badge in the near future, as may other companies with upcoming potential competitor PCs.
