32″ ‘Completes’ Philips’ UltraHD Monitor Family

The BDM3275UP ‘completes’ the Philips UltraHD monitor line-up, MMD has said, adding a 32″ model to the existing 28″ and 40″ units. Like these displays, the new monitor features 10-bit colour support, flicker-free technology and an IPS panel.

Partitioning divides the display in two, to show two sources side-by-side. These can be connected to the display via DisplayPort, MHL-HDMI (carrying UltraHD at 60fps), dual-link DVI, VGA or USB 3.0 (x4).

The monitor meets the TCO Edge, EnergyStar 6.0 and EPEAT Gold standards.

Viewing angles are 178° and brightness is 350 cd/m². The display has a 1,000:1 contrast ratio as 12ms (grey-to-grey) response time, lowered to 4ms (grey-to-grey) using Philips’ Smartresponse technology.

Two 3W speakers are built in. The monitor’s stand can tilt the screen between -5° and 20°, swivel 340°, pivot 90° and is height adjustable (180mm).

MMD will start to sell the BDM3275UP this month, for £665 ($1,045) ex VAT.

Analyst Comment

I continue to love my 32″ UltraHD monitor, but do wish my desk was a couple of inches lower so that the top was a bit further down. Last week, when doing a lot of writing and editing for the Infocomm report, I got real aches in the back of my neck from looking at the top of the screen. By the end of the week, I had articles opening only on the bottom half of the display. So many of the commands and menus from Windows are at the top of the screen! (BR)
