Amsterdam, March 16, 2021 – Displays are all around us, from home use to office environments and public spaces, but all of them meet different needs, have unique requirements and different applications. This prominent use continuously inspires in creating new and performing technologies, that can really meet any expectations. For a comfortable, fast and responsive touch experience here comes the Philips in-cell touch line (B1TC Series), ready to boost anyone’s productivity. But there are some uses that require highly specific, durable and versatile monitors: Points of Information, kiosks and in-store applications. Their solution lies in the new Philips Open Frame Touch monitors (B1TFL Series), interactive displays designed for public exposure and different user scenarios.
Slim and fast desktop touch experience
The new B1TC Series consists of two models: the 23.8” 242B1TC and the 21.5” 222B1TC. They rely on Advanced In-Cell Technology and on Projected Capacitive which ensure better transmittance and outstanding response rates, for a faster touch experience on up-to 10 simultaneous points touch. Our in-cell touch technology allows to have a slim design, 3-side frameless and IPS panel that ensure you wide viewing angles. The display features an anti-glare panel with 3H resistance that, with the Full HD resolution, always offers great visuals. The more natural, fluid and fast touch responsiveness meets the needs and desires of any home, office or educational applications – also thanks to the compatibility plug & play with Windows 10, and different Android and Linux versions.
24/7 touch excellence
Full and easy connectivity
Using a truly solution-focused approach, connection is designed to be as comfortable as possible, without neglecting specific uses and needs. These touch monitors have cross-platform compatibility with various versions of Windows, Android and Linux. The B1TC Series sports VGA, HDMI and DisplayPort input, as well as three USB-A 3.1 (one with fast charging). On the other hand, the B1TFL Series is equipped with VGA, DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort input, as well as a built-in USB hub (2x USB-A 3.1) to connect extra hardware and power devices.
The Open Frame models can be used in landscape, portrait and face-up orientation. The mounting system allows both VESA options and an L-Brackets system (included in the box), covering most installations, while a wired remote pad controls the OSD, ensuring it remains easily accessible once the monitor has been installed.
Advanced in-cell models are designed to meet different standards and present a 3-sides frameless and slim design with SmartStand, a Z-design with dual hinge stand that adapts to your needs and boost your productivity and comfort. VESA mounting is also available.
Certified for comfort and durability
Certifications play an important role in choosing the right monitor, specifically for open spaces: they ensure the needed level of quality or protection specific to these applications, which are often characterized by frequent and sometimes rough use. The Philips B1TFL Series features the fundamental certifications in terms of safety and electronic hazards. Moreover, they are certified EMI Class B.
Business, personal and educational use should be no less, that’s why the B1TC Series offers LowBlue Mode, Flicker-Free Technology and EasyRead for a comfortable viewing experience, almost paper-like. Additionally, it is fully certified by ES, TCO, EPEAT, TUV and TUV Eye Comfort – for a safe and top-notch experience and productivity.

Amsterdam, 15 February 2021 – One of the greenest monitors is here: the Philips 242B1G (23.8″ / 60.5 cm ) is designed for sustainable productivity and addressed to ecologically-minded professionals. This eco-friendly monitor from the Philips monitors’ B Line delivers a new level of power saving in addition to ease of use and visual comfort (the Full HD IPS panel delivers exceptional colour accuracy and wide viewing angles), ensuring peak performance every day while respecting the environment.
The Philips 242B1G delivers substantial energy savings thanks to a super-energy-efficient design that makes this model perfect even for complex set-ups. More specifically, its power-efficient features use a new LED backlight technology that maintains brightness and colour while using significantly less energy. The monitor is also equipped with an array of other power-saving technologies, such as PowerSensor, LightSensor and 0-watt hard power switch.
PowerSensor detects user presence or absence via harmless infrared signals and automatically reduces monitor brightness accordingly, helping to save up to 80% energy costs. LightSensor technology measures ambient light intensity and consequently adjusts screen brightness. Another important feature that makes this monitor especially effective at reducing users’ carbon footprint is the Zero Power Switch. At the flick of the 0-watt hard switch, users can completely cut off their monitor from AC power, resulting in zero power consumption. And that’s not all…
Green inside and out
True eco-conscious users demand eco-friendly and sustainable materials to effectively reduce their carbon footprint and promote circular consumption. This model is the ideal choice for them. Composed of 85% post-consumer recycled plastics and boasting a TCO Certified Edge, the Philips 242B1G is entirely free of harmful substances such as mercury, halogen and PVC/BFR to minimize environmental impact. In addition, all packing materials are 100% recycled as well as 100% recyclable, and the display meets major international standards such as EnergyStar 8.0, EPEAT1 and RoHS.
Comfortable visual experience
The Philips 242B1G meets high productivity needs. It features an IPS panel with Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) resolution for beautiful colours and sharp images, perfect for numerous tasks from photo editing to web browsing to professional applications that need colour accuracy and consistent brightness, thanks to 102% sRGB gamut coverage. IPS displays also enable wide viewing angles of 178/178 degrees, which is particularly useful when working in teams on a single display. The 242B1G also has a 75 Hz refresh rate, which is 25% more compared to common office displays with 60 Hz, resulting in smoother action when moving objects on the screen. The Philips 242B1G is also fitted with a USB hub, offering four USB 3.2 ports, one of which supports fast charging of smartphones and similar devices.
For users’ comfort, especially those who spend many hours in front of the monitor, this model includes three easy-on-the-eyes features to minimise eye strain. LowBlueMode reduces harmful shortwave blue light, while FlickerFree regulates brightness and reduces flicker for more comfortable viewing. EasyRead completes the offer for a paper-like reading experience. Finally, the 242B1G comes with a fully ergonomic stand, offering 150 mm height adjustment, -180/+180° swivel, -5/+35° tilt and 90° pivot adjustment.
