Philips’ “E-line” with full HD LCD monitors
The first line-up of PC monitors launched in the Philippines is targeted at consumers who look for computainment and ultimate gaming experience.
Glee Electronics showcased a photographic journey, “Images so real, it’s like being there,” using Philips’ latest E-line range featuring full high definition multimedia display, which is perfect for home users and avid gamers.
Available in the Philippines in three different models of 16-inch, 19-inch, and 22-inch widescreen formats, the 160E1SB, the 192E1SB, and the 220E1SB come in an attractive glossy finish and are all Windows Vista-ready with full high definition quality display.
All three models are equipped with Philips SmartContrast, an advanced video processing technology combined with unique extreme dimming and backlight boosting capability resulting in vibrant images.
The 220E1SB also has an auto picture format control that switches from the 4:3 aspect ratio to the widescreen mode and back again to match the display’s aspect ratio with the content for working, eliminating distortions. The result is a bright, lifelike picture with high contrast and vibrant colors, giving the Philips “best picture quality” experience.
All Philips LCD monitors are designed to use less energy and meet all international standards for environment, including EnergyStar and RoHS.
Philips also announced that more innovative products such as the 220X1 Lightframe monitor, as well as products for business to business users (B2B), will be introduced in the near future.
