Exceptionally wide displays with a 21:9 aspect ratio are all the rage at the moment. And MMD, leading technology company and brand license partner of Philips Displays, does not just launch one but all of two cinemascope displays with a UWHD resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. One model is aimed at professional users, whilst the other targets the consumer market. Showcased for the first time at this year’s CeBIT, these AH-IPS monitors, which are particularly bright with 300 cd/m², are available at stores now.
Panoramic view for professionals: UltraWide 21:9 display from Philips out now – Fresh from its debut at CeBIT 2013, the Philips 298P4QJEB professional display is now on sale. MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, is pleased to announce the release of this 29-inch (73 cm) AH-IPS display. The combination of an extra-wide viewing area in a 21:9 format and the simultaneous dual-feed via MultiView represent an innovative product concept which helps improve productivity at the workplace.
A superb viewing experience – Professional users require excellent image quality for stain-free working with detail-rich business applications. The new 21:9 298P4QJEB monitor from MMD and Philips was designed with exactly this purpose in mind. This crystal clear display is based on state-of-the-art AH–IPS technology for 178/178-degree viewing angles and a particularly high resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. The extra-wide 21:9 format provides users with the long-awaited additional screen space for displaying several application windows side by side – and at a brightness of 300 cd/m² even in brightly lit environments. With an outer bezel thickness of no more than 2.5 mm, nothing distracts the user from the truly panoramic view provided by these minimalistic displays.
Size matters – Complementing the spacious screen size, the advanced MultiView abilities enable users to stream content from multiple sources simultaneously. From finance professionals who need to keep tabs on more than one information feed at once, to graphic designers carrying out complex CAD-CAM work: multitaskers everywhere can hook up two devices and view content side by side. There is no need to crowd desks with two monitors.
Convenience in productivity – To prevent fatigue, the Smart ErgoBase from Philips offers numerous adjustments such as tilt, swivel and pivot functionality. The display can be lowered almost to desk level thanks to the height-adjustable stand – allowing different users to find their individual perfect viewing angle. The base also manages cables neatly, reducing cable clutter on the desktop. Connectivity also more than measures up to professional expectations: the new Philips display is equipped with a range of interfaces, including USB 3.0 for high speed data transfer, HDMI and Dual Link DVI. In addition, recognizing that finance and banking apps often need more than one window on the world – next to the MultiView capability of this 21:9 display – the new Philips UltraWide 298P4QJEB also supports Display Port technology, enabling users to daisy-chain multiple monitors.
The Philips 298P4QJEB monitor is available in stores as of now, at a recommended retail price of £374 excluding VAT (£449 including VAT).
Dazzling viewing experience on 29”: the UltraWide 21:9 display from Philips – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, is pleased to announce the release of this 29-inch panoramic display with 21:9 aspect ratio, brilliant true-color imaging with AH-IPS technology, and MultiView dual-source support.
Ultimate viewing quality – The new 298X4QJAB display ensures an unprecedented home-entertainment experience with its UWHD resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels and 300 cd/m² brightness on the 29-inch (73 cm) screen. State-of-the-art AH-IPS display technology delivers crisp images and vibrant colours, and the 178/178-degree viewing angles ensure crystal clear imaging from any perspective, ideal when the entire family is gathered round to watch the latest movie. The display also offers different ways to enhance the viewing experience, with features such as SmartImage presets for setting the viewing mode, SmartControl for easy tuning, SmartContrast to enhance screen contrast and SmartKolor for rich, vibrant images.
Ultimate entertainment – This new display testifies to the commitment of MMD to providing higher-resolution displays with superior image quality for professional and home users alike. A feature that makes the most of this excellent image quality – and the spacious 29-inch (73 cm) size of the display – is MultiView. It’s ideal for viewers who are spoilt for choice. The MultiView feature enables people to work with multiple devices such as PCs or BluRay players side by side, and stream content from multiple sources simultaneously – using one side of the screen to view the live sports feed from a set-top box, say, and the other side to browse the web on a notebook.
The flexible way to stay connected – Thanks to SmartConnect, the display can hook up with numerous devices. It is equipped with a range of interfaces, including DisplayPort, HDMI and Dual Link DVI, enabling viewers to enjoy high-res uncompressed video and audio content.
The Philips 298X4QJAB monitor is in stores now, at a recommended retail price of £429.
