You mean something like this??  http://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/tvs/wall-brackets/auction-1253048650.htm

 

 

Yeah that kind of thing. Needed one to get the tv high enough to see over the clutter infront of it and as they were renting didnt want to wall mount it and have to deal with patching that up when leaving.

fried: Looks like the problem may be that the Veon doesn't have HDR10, won't be able to upscale to 4k with anything that requires HDR10 such as the One S

 

I thought the HDR data was just metadata and that if the panel couldn't utilize it, it was just ignored?!?

 

 

There is metadata to choose the correct colourspace and also that it is 10 bits per pixel (or 12) not 8. If you were to try to do HDR over 8 bits it would look even more trash than the normal HD or NTSC colorspaces over 8 bit since the steps would be so much larger.

Ok so I'm unsure if the konic is just a rebranded veon or not, I know that Akai also are made in the same factory and share the same UI as veons, but think this is different.

I'm running my invoice at 3840x2160 @60 hz with 0 issues, just plugged into HDMI 2(arc) and selected uhd on my xbox one s.
It looks simply brilliant!

Does the Konic have discrete IR input commands?

Is it recognised in the harmony remote website?

The VEON range is manufactured in China using the same components as leading brands such as Samsung, LG and other large LCD/LED manufacturers.

 

The warehouse have just advertised this 65" 4K Veon with 8ms response rate for gaming and 3 year warranty.

Oops I forgot to say the 65" 4K Veon is only $899 but the price ends on 17/02/2017, so one day from now. Who knows what the price will be after tomorrow.

I wish that they would put a decent center mount  on them rather than  one foot at each end   requiring a wide TV stand.

That 65" is quite a deal.  For my setup, with smarts from an Xbox One S and sound via a receiver, all I need is a display device.

 

Viewing angle etc is about the only unknown.  3 year warranty is pretty good really, and likely to be reasonably hassle free with a big store chain like the warehouse.

Whys that? I wouldnt ever consider not wall mounting a screen that size if you have pets or kids, they fall easily on the tiny feet - which is also why they are so far apart.

Can anyone confirm konic is the same as veon? This has identical UI to the veons
