Philips Announces the 276C8 Monitor: 27" IPS, 2560 x 1440, 75 Hz, FreeSync, Ultra Wide-Color

MMD, brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the launch of the Philips Moda 276C8 LCD monitor with USB-C. CrystalClear QHD 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution brings every image to life, while IPS panel technology offers wide viewing angles and high color accuracy.

This 75Hz 27" Quad HD monitor is equipped with and IPS panel. Built with virtually no surrounding frame, its edgeless Zero Bezel look is not only aesthetically attractive but offers the advantage of a more expansive picture and a larger workspace while facilitating seamless tiling for multi-monitor setups. The monitor is also incredibly slim, measuring a mere 6.1 mm and presenting an attractive contemporary appearance that complements all manner of work and living spaces. The monitor's thin, stylish panel and geometric stand design earned it a 2018 Red Dot Design Award, which recognizes the best in design and business.

Philips Announces the Brilliance 272P7VUBN Monitor: 27" 4K, IPS, 60 Hz, 5 ms, 350 nits - $349

After introducing a 32" Brilliance monitor some time ago, Phillips is now bringing another lowcost 4K monitor that boasts a very impressive feature/price ratio. The new Brilliance 272P7VUBN monitor cuts the diagonal on the previous release to 27", but maintains most other specs, including the 4K resolution (with the expected increase in pixels per inch to 163) and the same IPS panel. The monitor remains just shy of a HDR 400 rating (350 nits maximum) and keeps the 60 Hz refresh rates and 5 ms response time, but those are features that are well in-line with casual gamers who want to make the move towards a higher, 4K resolution. Besides, the 60 Hz refresh rate is likely the best one to take advantage of with the current crop of graphics cards on the market - at least for the most recent and demanding titles.

The panel features a 178º angle of view and 1.07 billion colors reproduce 122% of the sRGB color gamut as well as 103% of the NTSC color gamut. The Brilliance 272P7VUBN also ships factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. Height, tilt, and swivel are available, as well as a 90 degree rotation capability. I/O stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x HDMI 2.0a, 1x USB Type-C (with DP 1.2, 65 W PD, data), as well as a 2-port USB 3.0 hub and 1x 3.5 mm headphone port.

Philips Introduces the Productivity-Geared 346B1C Monitor: 34" VA, 3440 x 1440, Curved 21:9

Philips today introduced their latest productivity-geared monitor in the form of the 346B1C. The 34" panel is of the VA type, ensuring great viewing angles without any form of color degradation. The WQHD resolution of 3440 x 1440 means maximum resolution, which can be better put to use in the 21:9 curved format of the display, allowing you to seamlessly work across two different windows (like this news editor is doing right now, really). The 346B1C features a USB-C dock so that you can have a seamless workflow from your portable environment to the big screen. It also sports split-screen views and an integrated multi-client KVM switch, so two PCs can use the same monitor, keyboard and mouse.

There's Adaptive-Sync (which should add some gaming chops to the monitor), flicker-free tech and LowBlue Mode for comfort. The stand features support for 180º swivel, tilt, and height-adjustments, and there's VESA support (though that's a given nowadays). The Philips 346B1C will be available this November for £539.

Philips Announces the Hue Play HDMI Sync Box

Signify, a Philips partner, launches the Hue Play HDMI Sync Box. With this product, you can synchronize all your Philips Hue lamps with your television. The sync box is placed between an HDMI device and your TV.

For this purpose, the box receives the signal from up to four HDMI devices, analyzes the image content and then forwards the signal to the TV set. While the image signal is passed unchanged, the sync box passes the color values to the Philips Hue bulbs. Similar to Philips TV sets with "Ambilight", the TV picture is then synced to the smart Philips Hue lights. The lighting effects can be reproduced on up to 10 lamps/lights in an entertainment area. The more lights are involved, the more impressive the effect will be. The Sync Box supports satellite receivers and Blu-ray players as well as game consoles, notebooks or streaming devices.

Philips Announces the Brilliance 329P9H Monitor: 32" 4K, IPS, 60 Hz, 5 ms, 350 nits

Phillips announced the latest in their Brilliance line of PC monitors. The 329P9H monitor features a 31.5" diagonal with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. The panel is of the IPS type, and a fairly basic one at that when it comes to features gamers expect: a 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response times aren't the most attractive for serious gaming - but then again, this monitor isn't really being marketed for serious gaming. And there's life in the PC world besides that one.

For those users that still think this monitor is interesting, the anti-glare coating and 350 nits of brightness should be interesting propositions for a more work-inspired usage scenario. The 178º angle of view and 1.07 billion colors join a wider than usual color gamut, covering 108% of the sRGB, 90% of the NTSC CIE1976, or 87% of the Adobe RGB color spaces to serve creative professionals' (or just color-correct amateurs) a precise environment. The Brilliance 329P9H also ships factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. Height, tilt, and swivel are available, as well as a 90 degree rotation capability. I/O stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2 input, 1x DisplayPort 1.2 output, 2x HDMI 2.0a, 1x USB Type-C (with DP 1.2, 65 W PD, data), as well as a 4-port USB 3.0 hub (one supports fast charging) and one Ethernet, GbE port. The recommended price for the Philips 329PH9 stands at £809, so MSRP in the US should land around the $899 mark.

It features VESA's HDR 400 certification, the lowest attributable to any monitor, a pop-up webcam for the privacy-minded amongst us with support for Windows Hello.

A USB 3.1 type-C docking station, an RJ45 port por secure communication between devices, and ergonomic features such as a height-adjustable stand with swivel and tilt functions, VESA mount, Flicker-Free technology and LowBlue Mode also make their appearances to round out the package.

Philips Announces the 241B8QJEB Monitor: IPS, 1080p, Made of 85% Recycled Materials

Philips, via its MMD brand license partner, today announced the launch of the basic, cost-effective 241B8QJEB monitor. The 241B8QJEB is a no-frills, basic monitor for your office use, and would be ideal as a second or third monitor in a non-gaming environment - though of course it would also work for gaming on a budget, though there are many better options for that particular use case.

The Phlipos 241B8QJEB is an environment-friendly monitor, with 85% of the materials used in its construction being recycled, thus reducing its footprint in the environment.

TrendForce: Shipments of Gaming Monitors Doubled in 2018, Market Share of Curved Models to Surpass 50% in Gaming Sector

The gaming market is one with high gross margins in the vast majority of its product lines - this is easily seen with the number of companies that have just slapped the same aesthetic look and "gaming" branding to otherwise "normal" product lines. One such instance, in particular, is the gaming monitor segment, where increasing perception of more competitiveness with higher refresh-rate monitors has brought about an urge to upgrade in the market - and not the least of which was brought about by games such as PUBG and Fortnite (the former even sparked an upgrade frenzy in China's Internet Cafes as they vied for ever more customers who would get an edge on their store over others that didn't sport these high refresh-rate monitors).

According to TrendForce's report, ASUS is the worldwide sales leader i the gaming monitor segment, followed by Acer, with AOC/Philips coming in a close third. TrendForce reports that the increased demand has seen shipment of gaming-grade (or at least branded) monitors has doubled in 2018 compared to last year, and that a sector that has increased significantly is the one of curved monitors, which has been taken up chiefly by Samsung, bringing it to the fourth spot in the manufacturer race. The curved monitor market has achieved a 50% stake in the whole of the gaming monitor, led chiefly by China's demand.

Intel and Philips Accelerate Deep Learning Inference on CPUs in Medical Imaging

Using Intel Xeon Scalable processors and the OpenVINO toolkit, Intel and Philips tested two healthcare use cases for deep learning inference models: one on X-rays of bones for bone-age-prediction modeling, the other on CT scans of lungs for lung segmentation. In these tests, Intel and Philips achieved a speed improvement of 188 times for the bone-age-prediction model, and a 38 times speed improvement for the lung-segmentation model over the baseline measurements.

Intel Xeon Scalable processors appear to be the right solution for this type of AI workload. Our customers can use their existing hardware to its maximum potential, while still aiming to achieve quality output resolution at exceptional speeds," said Vijayananda J., chief architect and fellow, Data Science and AI at Philips HealthSuite Insights.

European Commission Fines ASUS, Philips, Pioneer, Denon & Marantz $130M for Price Fixing

The European Commission today fined, in four separate decisions, consumer electronics manufacturers Asus, Denon & Marantz, Philips and Pioneer for imposing fixed or minimum resale prices on their online retailers in breach of EU competition rules.

Philips Launches Momentum 436M6VBPAB Monitor: 4K, Display HDR 1000, Active Sync

Remember that awe-inspiring 4K monitor from Philips - the one with Ambiglow and that earned the world's first HDR 1000 monitor certification? It's up for grabs as we speak in multiple markets, and pricing is somewhat lower than predicted - a rare, momentous occasion (see that?). The Momentum 436M6VBPAB monitor packs an 8 bit + FRC 43" MVA panel affair that supports 4K resolution, features true Display HDR with 1000 maximum nits brightness, and also features AMD's FreeSync specification up to 80 Hz (overclocked) from its 60 Hz base frequency (minimum refresh rate is unknown, as is unclear whether it supports LFC). Additionally, the monitor features Quantum Dot technology to increase its color range (97.6% of the DCI-P3 color gamut as well as 100% of the sRGB color range)

What's more impressive though, is that Philips' Momentum monitor doesn't seem to be using local dimming to achieve its 1000 nits flash maximum brightness (required for HDR 1000 certification, with a baseline full-screen 600 nits for continuous content). Instead, Philips is apparently employing a 32-zone edge-lit solution. This is without a doubt one of the reasons this panel manages to undercut NVIDIA's 144 Hz, 4K panels, which use a 384-zone local dimming panel (besides the added G-Sync module royalties, of course). The Philips Momentum is available mostly through Amazon, and carries a €799 MSRP, which translates to around $1000 in the US.

Philips Launches 34-Inch 349P7FUBEB and 27-Inch 272B7QUPBEB Monitors with USB-C

The emerging importance of USB-C
Welcomed by early adopters at the time of its introduction as a true revolution in the making, USB-C is now rapidly becoming a standard requirement for business and power users alike. As a real enabling technology, it provides a whole lot more than its practical reversible connector or its support for higher data transfer speeds, also allowing users to charge, transfer audio and video signal with different protocols, and connect to the Internet with just one single cable. USB-C thus transforms displays into the critical hubs around which the modern digital workplace thrives.
