Amsterdam – 21 November 2022 – Creative professionals, artists and professionals within the cultural and creative sectors, work in a wide variety of ways and look for solutions that meet their various and specific needs to fully express their creativity. Although these needs are various, the consensus is to have a high-performance monitor that can ensure performance-boosting features, high-quality visuals, and comfortable connectivity.

MMD, the leading display specialist and brand license partner for Philips monitors, is launching the Philips 27B1U7903, a 4K UHD Mini-LED Thunderbolt™ 4 monitor that combines outstanding picture performance with secure one-cable docking, sustainable materials, and stylish design. Packed with high-performance features to enable professionals to reach new levels of productivity, the Philips 27B1U7903 is also the first Philips monitor to feature Thunderbolt™ 4 technology for next-generation connectivity.

Key features

  • Thunderbolt™ 4 in/out for video, audio, data transfer, Ethernet, power delivery, daisy chaining, and more
  • MiniLED display, the greatest number of local dimming zones inside a 27-inch monitor (2,304 zones, compared to normal 576 zones)
  • VESA DisplayHDR 1400 for deeper blacks and brighter whites with ultra-realistic effects in gaming and movies
  • UltraClear 4K UHD Resolution for extreme detail and precision
  • Four-sided frameless design and integrated cable management for a sleek, uncluttered look

“Packed to the brim with cutting-edge, performance-boosting features, the Philips 27B1U7903 is the ideal choice for all of the creative professions. Not only does it deliver jaw-dropping visuals with extreme color accuracy and attention to detail, but it also includes the speed, power, and simplicity of Thunderbolt™ 4 technology.” – Xeni Bairaktari, Global Marketing Lead and Senior Brand Manager EU at MMD Monitors & Display

Power, performance, and precision

Professionals such as cinematographers, colourists, photographers, and graphic designers who all depend on maximal colour accuracy and detail will be well-served by the Philips 27B1U7903. Ultra Clear 4K UHD (3840×2160) resolution delivers the accuracy and detail that CAD and 3D graphics applications require, IPS technology offers extra wide viewing angles of 178/178 degrees, and Mini LED backlighting improves control of lighting and contrast ratio. This monitor is also certified with the VESA Display HDR™ 1400 certification level, meaning it provides a peak brightness of up to 1600 nits, a 350% increase in contrast range, and a wider colour gamut (1.07B colours) to bring out previously unseen details and nuances for ultra-realistic effects. A wide array of other visual-enhancing features further extends the graphic performance of the Philips 27B1U7903. Quantum Dot Technology, an innovative semiconductor nanocrystal technology, precisely emits light to produce vibrant, dynamic, eye-popping colour. Zero Bright Dot™ eliminates LCD bright dot defects, while Smart Uniformity provides consistent brightness across the display, and a Delta E value of less than 1 ensures maximal colour accuracy in addition to guarding against any colour difference between multiple displays.

Another star feature of the Philips 27B1U7903 is the Thunderbolt™ 4 protocol, which provides simplicity, speed, and reliability in ways its predecessors could not. Whether users need single-cable lightning-fast data transfer, dependable 4K entertainment on multiple screens, impressive 90W power for laptop charging, simple and powerful daisy chaining for multi-monitor setups, or the peace of mind that comes from having heightened security against Thunderspy attacks, Thunderbolt™ 4 offers a veritable treasure chest of benefits. And that’s not all – Thunderbolt™ 4 is compliant with USB4, meaning users are certain to enjoy the best and fastest USB speed available, guaranteeing data transfer speeds of up to 32 Gbps.

Last but certainly not least, the Philips 27B1U7903 is equipped with a variety of ergonomic and sustainability-minded features, such as a hideaway power sensor that enables up to 80% energy savings and a Smart Ergo Base that allows users to swivel, tilt, and height adjust the monitor to the most comfortable position for long hours of work or play.
