Resolution for precision

These Philips displays utilise high performance panels to deliver UltraClear, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution images. This makes them suitable for the demanding professional who needs extremely detailed images for CAD solutions, 3D graphics applications or huge spreadsheets. Philips displays will make your images and graphics come alive.

Ultra Wide-Colour for a vivid picture

The Ultra Wide-Colour technology delivers a wider spectrum of colours for a more brilliant picture. The Ultra Wide-Colour "colour gamut" produces more natural-looking greens, vivid reds and deeper blues. This will bring, media entertainment, images, and even productivity to life with vivid colors from the Ultra Wide-Color Technology.

Effortlessly smooth gameplay with AMD FreeSync™ technology

Gaming shouldn't be a choice between choppy gameplay or broken frames. With this new Philips monitor it doesn't have to be. You can get fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate with AMD FreeSync™ technology. AMD Freesync gives you a smooth quick refresh and ultra-fast response time.

Smart Image game mode optimised for gamers

The new Philips gaming display has a quick access OSD that is fine tuned for gamers. You can choose from:

  • "FPS" mode which improves dark themes in games, allowing you to see hidden objects in dark areas.
  • "Racing" mode adapts the display with the fastest response time, high color and makes image adjustments.
  • "RTS" mode has a special SmartFrame mode which enables highlighting of a specific area and allows for size and image adjustments.
  • Gamer 1 and Gamer 2 enable you to save personal customised settings based on different games, ensuring best performance.

Less eye fatigue with Flicker-free technology

Due to the way brightness is controlled on LED-backlit screens, some users experience flicker on their screen which causes eye fatigue. Philips Flicker-free Technology applies a new solution to regulate brightness and reduce flicker for more comfortable viewing.

LowBlue Mode

Studies have shown that just as ultra-violet rays can cause eye damage, shortwave length blue light rays from LED displays can cause eye damage and affect vision over time. Developed for wellbeing,the Philips LowBlue Mode uses a smart software technology to reduce harmful shortwave blue light.

Cable management reduces cable clutter

The Cable management on this monitor is a useful design that maintains a tidy workspace by organising cables and wires required for the operation.

EasySelect menu toggle key

The discreetly placed EasySelect Menu Toggle Key allows you to make quick and easy adjustments to the monitor settings in the On-Screen Display menu.

IPS LED wide view technology

IPS displays use an advanced technology which gives you an extra wide viewing angle of 178/178 degrees, making it possible to view the display from almost any angle. Unlike standard TN panels, IPS displays gives you remarkably crisp images with vivid colors, making it ideal not only for photos, movies and web browsing, but also for professional applications which demand color accuracy and consistent brightness at all times.

SmartContrast for rich black details

SmartContrast is a Philips technology that analyses the contents you are displaying, automatically adjusting colors and controlling backlight intensity to dynamically enhance contrast for the best digital images and videos or when playing games where dark hues are displayed. When Economy mode is selected, contrast is adjusted and backlighting fine-tuned for everyday office applications and lower power consumption.

1.07 billion colours for stunning colour

This display delivers outstanding colour depth with 1.07 billion colors, and the finest gradation, for re-creating smooth, precise, and vivid images. You can enjoy accurate and true-to-life visuals whether gaming, watching videos, or working on colour critical work with graphics applications.
