Amsterdam, 15 March 2016 – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces the world’s first monitor with Quantum Dot Colour technology. With colours that are more vivid, consistent and truer-to-life than ever, the new 27-inch E-Line display 276E6ADSS delivers professional colour quality with 100 % NTSC and 99 % Adobe RGB support, all at a consumer-friendly price.

Quantum Dot Colour – making the difference

Quantum Dot Colour is an innovative nanomaterial technology that produces incredibly accurate, saturated colour – in fact, over 30 % more colour than traditional sRGB LEDs. Additionally, it costs a fraction of most colour-critical technologies and uses 25 % less energy, so saves on energy bills as well.

Artem Khomenko, Product Manager Philips monitors Europe at MMD, explains what makes this technology so different: “With a typical LCD display, there is leakage between RGB channels that compromises how well the display can cover the colour gamut. This new LCD display with Quantum Dot Colour technology achieves much sharper channel distinctions, delivering consistent, vibrant colours across the entire gamut.”

The new 27-inch display is emblematic of the commitment of MMD to deliver better resolution and image quality to all users – because it isn't just professionals who benefit from fidelity in colour reproduction. The expansive colour palette is also ideal for movie lovers, amateur photographers and designers who want the confidence of consistent and true colour reproduction.

Performance under the hood

To leverage the superb colour quality, the latest member of the E-Line series features IPS-ADS technology for added image clarity, Full HD resolution with 1920 x 1080 pixels, as well as an extra-wide viewing angle of 178 degrees. Also on board are Philips Smart technologies to complement the colour performance with enhanced contrast and brightness: SmartImage Lite dynamically enhances contrast, colour saturation and sharpness to suit what is displayed on the screen. SmartControl Lite is a fast, easy way for users to fine-tune display parameters. SmartContrast automatically adjusts colour, contrast and backlight intensity to make the viewing experience even richer and more immersive. And for extra performance, 5 ms SmartResponse puts response times into overdrive for fast-moving applications like gaming.

Another valuable feature for home users is MHL connectivity: users can simply connect mobile devices to the display using an optional MHL cable, and enjoy their mobile content on a much larger screen with Full HD resolution, excellent sound from the integrated speakers – and of course the colour fidelity of Quantum Dot Colour technology.

Elegance for the living space

In a home environment, the display has to look equally good even when turned off. With its glossy white finish and silver stand, the inspired elegance of the new 276E6ADSS display complements any living space. Attention to detail is superb: instead of protruding buttons, the display has touch controls - which keep the already slim lines clean and smart throughout.
