MMD, the Asia Pacific brand licensing partner of Philips Monitors, today announced the launch of their latest SuperWide Curved monitor. The new Philips 499P9H1 features 49-inch screen size boosting 5120×1440 resolution with 60Hz refresh rate, 5ms GTG response time, 1800R Curvature, Adaptive Sync technology, Gigabit LAN, HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4, USB 3.1, USB-C docking, speakers, swivel, tilt, height adjustable stand and VESA 100mm support.
The new Philips’ 49-inch curved 32:9 SuperWide display is like two full-size high-performance monitors in-one. Productivity enhancing features like USB-C and pop-up webcam with Windows Hello deliver performance and convenience users expect.
According to the company, the 32:9 SuperWide 49″ screen, with 5120 x 1440 resolution, is designed to replace multiscreen setups for massive wide view. “It’s like having two 27″ 16:9 Quad HD displays side-by-side. SuperWide monitors offer screen area of dual monitors without the complicated setup,” said the company in a statement. “Gaming shouldn’t be a choice between choppy gameplay or broken frames. Get fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any frame-rate with Adaptive-Sync technology, smooth quick refresh and ultra-fast response time.”
The new Philips display features a built-in USB 3.1 type-C docking station with power delivery. Its slim, reversible USB-C connector allows for easy, one-cable docking. “Simplify by connecting all your peripherals like keyboard, mouse and your RJ-45 Ethernet cable to the monitor’s docking station. Simply connect your notebook and this monitor with a single USB-C cable to watch high-resolution video and transfer super-speed data, while powering up and re-charging your notebook at the same time,” said the company.
With MultiClient Integrated KVM switch, users can control two separate PCs with one monitor-keyboard- mouse set up. A convenient button allows users to quickly switch between sources. This feature, according to the company, is handy with set-ups that require dual PC computing power or sharing one large monitor to show two different PCs.
“Phillips’ innovative and secure webcam pops up when you need it and securely tucks back into the monitor when you are not using it. The webcam is also equipped with advanced sensors for Windows Hello facial recognition, which conveniently logs you into your Windows devices in less than 2 seconds, 3 times faster than a password,” the company continued.
The VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 delivers a significant step-up from normal SDR displays, said the company. “Unlike, other ‘HDR compatible’ screens, true DisplayHDR 400 produces astonishing brightness, contrast and colors. With global dimming and peak brightness up-to 400 nits, images come to life with notable highlights while featuring deeper, more nuanced blacks. It renders a fuller palette of rich new colors, delivering a visual experience that engages your senses,” the company said of the new display.
The display also comes with Philips’ Flicker-free Technology that applies a new solution to regulate brightness and reduce flicker for more comfortable viewing. With the ultra-high resolution Philips MultiView display users can now experience a world of connectivity.
MultiView enables active dual connect and view so that users can work with multiple devices such as a PC and notebook simultaneously, for complex multi-tasking. The Philips 49-inch 32:9 SuperWide Curved Monitor is now available across the Middle East and Africa region.
