PRESS RELEASEAmsterdam, 29 March 2017 – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces a new 27-inch flat screen E-Line display that steps up performance and viewing quality for the many and varied activities of home users. With Quad HD resolution, the latest Ultra Wide Color technology, and stunning looks for the living space, the new 276E8FJAB display offers crisp imaging and rich, vivid colours that inspire creativity and generate a true-to-life viewing experience.
UPPING THE BENCHMARKS FOR MAINSTREAM QUALITY“Displays in the home are expected to do a plethora of things – people use them for everything from checking social media and catching up on office work, to editing and producing videos, streaming multimedia from a variety of sources, and connecting with friends and relatives anywhere in the world,” comments Artem Khomenko, Product Manager Philips monitors Europe at MMD. “The latest 27-inch flat screen display is part of an extensive line-up that is designed to do all these things and more, raising the benchmark on viewing quality and convenient connectivity, and giving users the reassurance of a first-class brand at a price point that offers compelling value.”
Ideal for users who are looking for slick performance and elegant design for their living space, the new display offers much more than the standard features and specs. Colour performance is outstanding: With advanced Ultra Wide Color technology, the display supports a colour gamut that is now wider than ever – 114% NTSC based on CIE1976 and 132% sRGB based on CIE 1931, which far exceeds the typical 72% NTSC and 99% sRGB. Ultra Wide Color extends the range of perceptible colours on the screen, a feature that makes the display a valuable tool for activities that benefit from accurate colour reproduction such as home shopping (shoppers see the exact colour of the products they are ordering), as well as watching or editing photos and videos. Complementing its colour abilities, the 276E8FJAB also features Quad HD resolution with 2560 x 1440 pixels for crystal-clear images. Its high-performance wide-view panel supports the high density pixel counts of sources such as DisplayPort and HDMI (supported by the new display), and the extra-wide viewing of 178 degrees makes it possible to view the display from almost any angle.
FEATURES TO MAKE GREAT QUALITY EVEN BETTERWith a range of features to automatically optimise visuals, the display fine-tunes the reproduction for an even better viewing experience: Philips SmartContrast and SmartImage Lite technologies analyse the screen content, automatically making adjustments in real time to contrast, colours, image sharpness and backlight intensity to suit what is shown on the screen at the time. Flicker-free technology minimises potential eye fatigue with a new solution that regulates brightness and reduces flicker for more comfortable viewing.
In line with its all-round versatility, the display also provides excellent sound, with two integrated stereo speakers for crisp audio reproduction when watching videos or making video calls.
SLIM ELEGANCEThe overall elegance of the design makes the display a stylish addition to any room. The design is enhanced by edge-to-edge glass and ultra-narrow borders: as well as creating a seamless appearance, the slim borders maximise the viewing space on the screen and minimise distraction for the eyes.
The new Philips 276E8FJAB E-Line display, with an RRP of £339, will be available in May 2017.
