Fast response time up to 2 ms
GtG response time is the average time that it takes for a pixel to go from one arbitrary position to another, which is the average time of transition between several sets of random colour levels. Faster is better: Lower response time means faster transitions and, therefore, results in fewer visible image artefacts in the display of fast moving images. GtG response time is an important way to measure display quality of multimedia content like movies, videos and games.
SmartContrast 12000:1 for incredible rich black details
You want the LCD flat display with the highest contrast and most vibrant images. Philips advanced video processing combined with unique extreme dimming and backlight-boosting technology results in vibrant images. SmartContrast will increase the contrast with excellent black level and accurate rendition of dark shades and colours. It gives a bright, lifelike picture with high contrast and vibrant colours.
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.
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.
One-touch format switching between wide and 4:3 ratios
Philips auto picture format is a button that switches from the 4:3 aspect ratio to the widescreen mode, and back again, to match the display's aspect ratio with your content for working with wide documents without scrolling or viewing widescreen media in the widescreen mode and distortion-free, native mode display of 4:3 ratio content.
USB port for convenient peripheral connections
The USB port allows the user to conveniently connect their plug and play multimedia devices such as USB memory devices, camera, portable HDD, Web camera, PDA, Printer and many other devices that use USB connection. The conveniently located USB 2.0 port on the monitor allows USB 2.0 signals to pass through to the computer. Note that many devices like cameras and HDD may need to be powered on independently, as they have higher power requirements than the monitor USB port can provide.
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.
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.

Complies with TCO'06 safety and visual ergonomics standard
TCO'06-compliant monitors meet ergonomic, environmental and health standards for multimedia displays created by TCO (the Swedish Confederation of Professional Employees); TCO'06, the most stringent ever, covers requirements for visual ergonomics in multimedia display, including health considerations as well as other features that characterise good quality displays. A TCO'06-compliant display's specifications must meet or exceed TCO'06 standards for visual ergonomics, emissions and energy conservation.
