United Kingdom, June 2012: MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, today released a new 27-inch Philips AMVA LCD monitor for the home. Nowadays - with power-hungry gaming and video applications stretching monitor capabilities to the utmost - home users are looking for performance-packed entertainment devices that can deliver the very best viewing. The Philips AMVA 273E3QHSB LCD monitor with W-LED backlighting is an excellent choice to satisfy these requirements.
Home to performance
The latest member of the Philips E-line monitor series offers 27 inches of screen space, providing plenty of room to show off the dazzling picture quality to best effect. Working with AMVA technology (Advanced Multi-Domain Vertical Alignment), the display offers super-high static contrast ratios for extra vivid and bright images, perfect for home users who want the best-quality viewing experience for gaming, watching videos, looking at photos or just browsing the web. And, if things need to get a little more work-like, the display of course delivers equally impressive pictures with demanding graphical applications.
Homes are communicative places - all the more reason to make sure viewing can always be a group experience. The optimiszed pixel management technology provides a 178/178 degree extra-wide viewing angle, ensuring sharp, clear images even in 90 degree pivot mode - enabling family and friends to gather round and see what's happening on the screen from any viewing angle. The sound is also excellent, thanks to the built-in stereo speakers, which ensure rich sound reproduction.
Full HD LCD display, HDMI ready
HD is the de-facto standard for high-quality viewing. The 273E3QHSB display is Full HD, and supports a widescreen resolution of 1920 x 1080, the highest possible resolution that HD sources can deliver. It is fully future-proof as it supports 1080p signals from all sources, including Blu-ray and advanced HD gaming consoles. Signal processing is extensively upgraded to support this much higher signal quality and resolution. The outcome is brilliant, flicker-free progressive-scan imaging with superb brightness and colours.
With a display this brilliant, users will want to make the most of its capabilities and plug in the sound and picture source of their choice. The High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) of the display enables high-quality digital video and audio to be transmitted over a single cable from any preferred source: PC, DVD player, set-top box or camera.
The integrated Smart suite in the new AMVA LCD monitor ensures the viewing experience is the best it can be. Take image rendition, for instance: there's no one-size-fits-all approach here, and settings are adapted to suit what's on the screen. Picture format, for example, is automatically adjusted from widescreen to 4:3 format to ensure distortion-free presentation. SmartImage Lite, an exclusive leading-edge technology by Philips, dynamically adjusts the contrast, colour saturation and sharpness of images and videos for ultimate display performance, all in real time and at the touch of a button. And if this isn't enough, there's SmartControl Lite: simple on-screen icons to fine-tune display performance. And for the rest of the controls, the display features smart, touch-sensitive buttons instead of protruding knobs. Responding to the lightest touch, the controls give the display a clean, stylish look. Finally, SmartContrast enhances the already excellent contrast with excellent black level and accurate rendition of dark shades and colours, delivering vibrant, lifelike pictures.
The Philips AMVA LCD monitor with SmartImage Lite will be available through reseller, distribution partners and PC Retail stores throughout the UK from mid-May at the recommended retail price of £309.99 (including VAT).
