Over the last couple of weeks, we’ve seen two monitors listed at Chinese retail sites advertised with a ‘DisplayHDR 2000’ logo. At the time, it was assumed that a higher tier was being added to the VESA HDR certification programme, but as it turns out, the logo is fake.
In a statement released this afternoon, VESA confirmed that “DisplayHDR 2000” certification does not exist yet, with DisplayHDR 1000 remaining as the highest tier offered. The logo used to advertise these monitors at retail was also fake.
“There is no “DisplayHDR 2000″ tier in the VESA DisplayHDR specification and logo program at this time”, VESA said. “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”.

KitGuru Says: This is an unfortunate turn of events, but perhaps we’ll see VESA expand its HDR certification another time.
