An everyday professional ally

The Philips 24B1U5301H, 27B1U5601H and 34B1U5600CH are designed to facilitate every task, delivering bright, vivid pictures and excellent image quality to please even the most demanding CAD-CAM, 3D graphics, or photography professionals. All three models deliver crisp visuals and come with extra wide viewing angles of 178/178°, either thanks to IPS (24” and 27” models) or VA technology (34” model). Both the 34” and 27” models offer a CrystalClear resolution – the 34B1U5600CH at UWQHD (3440×1440) and the 27B1U5601H at WQHD (2560×1440) – thus meeting even the most discerning professionals’ expectations in a high-end display.

Connectivity and multi-tasking are prioritised, thanks to innovative technologies such as the USB Type C one-cable-docking port, which enables simultaneous high-speed data transfer, networking, and notebook charging. The MultiClient Integrated KVM switch allows users to control two separate PCs with a single monitor-keyboard-mouse set-up and gives them the ability to toggle between sources at the push of a button. While DisplayPort-out is yet another feature that simplifies the workday by allowing users to daisy chain their monitors. Last but not least, the USB 3.2 hub allows for a faster and more complete output for peripherals, minimising cable clutter.

Virtual collaboration is facilitated by all three models thanks to features like a built-in 5MP webcam, noise-cancelling microphone, and speakers. While the microphone and speakers ensure clear communications, the webcam protects users’ privacy through its physical switch and is equipped with advanced sensors for swift and secure Windows HelloTM facial recognition.

And because long hours of computer work can quickly take their toll, whether working from home or the office, the Philips 24B1U5301H, 27B1U5601H, and 34B1U5600CH provide both visual and ergonomic comfort in the form of a tilt, swivel, and height-adjustable base and the TUV Eye Comfort certification to reduce eye fatigue. The models also feature PowerSensor for up to 80% energy cost reduction and LightSensor for the perfect brightness at any ambient setting.
