MMD Secures Monitor With Hidden Camera

The B2B Philips monitor that MMD previewed last week, and will appear at IFA 2016, is officially known as the 272B7QPTKEB. This 27″ display features a pop-up webcam that is usually hidden in the display frame. MMD says that this makes the monitor more secure if a network is hacked.

Like other professional Philips displays, the monitor features presence sensors to minimise power consumption. It also supports daisy chaining through the DisplayPort input. Mini-DisplayPort and HDMI interfaces are also featured. The monitor can be tilted (-5° to 20°), swivelled (350°), pivoted (90°) and raised/lowered (150mm).

An IPS panel with 2560 x 1440 resolution provides the display with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio and 178° viewing angles. Brightness is 350 cd/m².

MMD is selling the monitor now, for £480 ($620) ex VAT.
