Futuresource Consulting have just released the Q1 2015 EMEA pro monitor report. According to the report the EMEA professional monitor market fell by 12 per cent (782 units) between Q4 2014 and Q1 2015 to reach 5,963 units. However, when comparing Q1 YoY, volumes were 17 per cent (1,213 units) lower.
Futuresource also investigated the potential of HDR technology. “HDR is heavily linked to 4K and will contribute towards pro monitors,” commented Nicky Price, Research Analyst at Futuresource Consulting. Nicky continued “We do not expect this technology to drive professional monitor volumes in the near term, however, a greater number of product acquisition with 14 stops of dynamic range will be required in order to fuel demand in the pro monitor market.”
