Features Crystal clear UltraWide HD with 2560 x 1080 pixels

Whether you are a demanding professional requiring extremely detailed information for CAD-CAM solutions, using 3D graphic applications or a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, Philips displays will give you Crystalclear images.

MultiView enables active dual connect and view at the same time
With the ultra high resolution Philips MultiView display you can now experience a world of connectivity in comfort whether at the office or at home. MultiView enables active dual connect and view so that you can work with multiple devices like a PC and Notebook side-by-side simultaneously, making complex multi-tasking work a breeze. Watching live football feeds from your set-top box on the right-hand side, while browsing the Internet from your notebook on the left is now easy. You may want to keep an eye on the live news feed with audio in the small window, while working on your latest blog.

Minimalistic looks with Ultra-Narrow Bezel
Utilising the latest technology panels, the new Philips displays are designed with a minimalistic approach by limiting the outer bezel thickness to about 2.5 mm. Combined with an in-panel black matrix strip of around 9 mm, the overall bezel dimensions are reduced significantly, minimising distractions and maximising viewing size. Especially suited to multi-display or tiling setups like gaming, graphics design and professional applications, the Ultra-narrow bezel display gives you the feeling of using one large display. SmartControl for easy performance tuning PC software for fine tuning display performance and settings. Philips offers users two choices for display setting adjustment.

SmartKolor for rich vibrant images
SmartKolor is a sophisticated colour extension technology that is able to enhance the visual colour range of the display. By boosting the RGB gain level of the display, you can achieve rich, vibrant images to experience outstanding photos and videos.

SmartTxt for an optimised reading experience
SmartTxt is a sophisticated algorithm that enhances reading of text-based applications such as PDF documents and eBooks, which usually requires more focus and concentration. The SmartTxt feature increases the contrast and boundary sharpness of text content for better readability. Optimisation for reading is achieved by adjusting the display's grey level scale along with white balance, brightness and contrast.

Panoramic 21:9 AH-IPS screen gives brilliant images
This latest Philips display uses advanced 21:9 panoramic AH-IPS panel with True 8-bit colour depth resulting in superb colour accuracy. Philips' TrueVision technology achieves more than 99% sRGB colour space with a delta-E of less than 3, far tighter than the Windows specification. The 21:9 format makes it perfectly suitable for viewing more spreadsheet columns. Its 178/178 degree viewing angle allows for best graphic designing, web applications and photo retouching, amongst others. You can now open 2 full-size side-by-side Internet pages, navigate multiple applications and multi-task with ease.
