An everyday professional ally

The Philips 24B1U5301H, 27B1U5601H and 34B1U5600CH are designed to facilitate every task, delivering bright, vivid pictures and image quality to please even the most demanding CAD-CAM, 3D graphics, or photography professionals. All three models are equipped crisp visuals and extra wide viewing angles of 178/178°, either thanks to IPS (24” and 27” models) or VA technology (34” model). The 34B1U5600CH and 27B1U5601H offer CrystalClear Quad HD to deliver bright, vivid pictures and image quality to please even the most demanding CAD-CAM, 3D graphics, or photography professionals.

Connectivity and multi-tasking are prioritized, thanks to innovative technology such as one-cable-docking USB Type-C, which enables simultaneous high-speed data transfer, networking, and notebook charging, or the MultiClient Integrated KVM switch, which 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. DisplayPort-out is another feature that simplifies the workday by allowing users to daisy chain their workstation, and it works along USB 3.2 for a faster and more complete output for the periperals on the side, minimizing cable clutter.

Collaboration, whether in person or virtual, 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 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 with minimal power.
