EVE’s Project Spectrum is claimed to be the world’s first glossy 4K gaming monitor, and while the idea sounds simple, the application is more complex than you think. The main reason why there are no glossy gaming monitors on the market today is because it requires additional changes to the polarizer film, which is an integral part of the LCD module. The latter is essentially a filter that controls light waves and makes the display content visible.
So, they company had to contact LG Display to make this a reality, which required them to re-calibrate its fully automated LCD assembly line as well as its certification process. They also had to tune the color performance and conduct durability testing. This glossy polarizer increases crispness and pop to the monitor’s colors, while allowing for sharper text as well as better image quality overall. Unfortunately, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability.

It took a bunch of convincing with the right people inside of LG Display to make this a reality. Since the changes to such an important part require LG to re-calibrate its fully automated LCD assembly line, not only that, but also changes to the certification process, tune colour performance and conduct durability testing, it was not an easy task,” said the company.
