PHILIPS Monitors At IFA 2014: Well-Being And Gaming
Blue light reduction for the greatest happiness of the eyes
Business users have never spent so much time in front of their screens. Logically, the ever longer exposure to blue light is a potential risk of long-term damage to vision. For its world premiere at IFA 2014 , the new Philips SoftBlue monitor has a shocking edge , with technology to reduce visual fatigue by eliminating blue light emissions at harmful wavelengths.
It thus reduces the negative impact on the eye and improves the well-being of the user. Contrary to the software approaches to counteract these effects, the SoftBlue monitor implements a new technology that modifies the blue peak in LEDswithout affecting color fidelity or brightness.
The user therefore always enjoys the same image quality, without exposing himself to the deleterious effects of blue light.
Another major innovation of the year, the 4K UHD display – four times sharper than a Full HD display – appeared in 28-inch format in early summer; it will be available at the IFA in 32 and 40 inches. These two new versions will play both the entertainment map for movies and video games in large format and that of professionals looking for display surfaces multiplied for their most demanding or sophisticated applications.
The game in all its states
MMD has also been thinking of video game fans and will present at IFA its new model dedicated to the most demanding gamers, the 272G5DYEB , a 27-inch 144Hz monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology . By letting the graphics processor manage its refresh, the monitor manages to provide animated images of a rare fluidity, particularly detailed in the trajectories of moving objects. It takes into account a number of non-existent images on standard frequency screens. At 144 Hz, the refresh takes place two and a half times faster than on a conventional monitor. The 272G5DYEB then offers a significant time advantage to players for whom a fraction of a second is enough to make all the difference, to adjust more precisely their target and take an additional step.
