See all benefits
SmartImage is an exclusive leading-edge Philips technology that analyses the content displayed on your screen. Based on a scenario you select, SmartImage dynamically enhances the contrast, colour saturation and sharpness of images and videos for ultimate display performance - all in real time and at the press of a single button.
TrueVision is an industry leading, proprietary Philips testing and algorithm technology for the adjustment and fine-tuning of monitors, an extensive process that ensures ultimate display performance in compliance with a standard four-times more stringent than Microsoft's Vista requirements, for each monitor that leaves the factory - not just a few review samples. Only Philips goes to these lengths to deliver this exacting level of colour accuracy and display quality in every new monitor.
SmartContrast: For incredible rich black details
SmartContrast is a Philips technology that analyses the contents you are displaying, automatically adjusting colours 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 just-right display of everyday office applications and lower power consumption.
Dual input accepts both analogue VGA and digital DVI signals
Dual input provides connectors to accommodate input of both analogue VGA and digital DVI signals.
The green design conserves resources and reduces operating costs
Eco-friendly design is based on environmentally conscious engineering of a display device to minimise power consumption, reduce packing materials and eliminate hazardous materials. Being at the forefront of sustainability and with our longstanding commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our products, we enable consumers to make simple, responsible choices about the products they buy and the impact they have before, during and at the end of their life cycle.
DVI-D input and HDCP support
High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a copyright protection system that is incorporated into the DVI connector. It helps stop unauthorised duplication of copyrighted content. HDCP allows you to play protected content media such as movies and concerts. It checks the signal to prevent piracy, allowing only legal copies of content to display.
Screen tilts to your ideal, individualised viewing angle
Adjustable tilt is backward and forward movement of a screen on its base to achieve custom positioning for an ideal viewing angle and more comfort for people who spend long hours working on the computer.
Hassle-free display performance tuning with SmartControl II
SmartControl II is monitor-based software with an easy-to-use on-screen graphic interface that guides you through fine-tuning resolution, colour calibration and other display settings including brightness, contrast, clock and phase, position, RGB, white point and - on models with onboard speakers - volume adjustments.
Cable management for a tidy work space
Cable management is a system that maintains tidy workspace by organising cables and wires required for the operation of a display device.
TCO'03 guarantees the highest safety and ergonomic standards
A TCO (Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees) standard even more stringent than MPR-II for safety and ergonomics, especially concerning alternating electric fields (AEF).
