MMD, brand license partner for Philips monitors, has introduced the 278E9, the latest addition to its E9 line of consumer displays.
The new monitor offers a curved 27-inch narrow-border Ultra-Wide Color Full HD display for realistic visuals and extra wide viewing angles.
The 278E9 monitor is endowed with a wider colour gamut than its predecessors, resulting in more natural-looking greens, more vivid reds, deeper blues, and an overall more brilliant picture. In addition, enhanced Full HD 1920 x 1080 (16:9) resolution ensures excellent picture quality with crisp detail, extra brightness, powerful contrast, and realistic colours for lifelike image rendering.
The 278E9 also features Flicker-Free Technology to regulate brightness and reduce flicker, while Philips LowBlue Mode uses smart software to reduce harmful shortwave blue light for greater wellbeing. In addition to these, EasyRead provides a paper-like reading experience, SmartImage ensures easy optimised image settings, and SmartContrast delivers deep black levels for visuals that pop.
The 278E9 features a curved VA display that can reach up to 1800R curvature for more immersive experiences with less distortion. Philips VA LED technology uses an advanced multi-domain vertical alignment approach that results in super-high static contrast ratios for bright, vivid images, while its optimised pixel management provides 178/178-degree extra-wide viewing angles.
With the addition of AMD FreeSync technology, the 278E9 delivers a fluid, artefact-free performance at virtually any frame rate. To complete the immersive effect, the display includes a pair of high-quality built-in stereo speakers.
Equipped for universal digital connectivity, the 278E9 monitor contains the necessary hardware to accept VGA and High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) input for high-quality digital video and audio transfer from a PC or any number of AV sources. It also includes a DisplayPort connection, Separate Sync and Sync on Green input.
The Philips 278E9QJAB will be available in July 2018 with an RRP of £199.
