Envision Peripherals Inc. (EPI), a North American subsidiary of TPV that brings Philips displays to market, unveiled a 34-inch curved IPS display at CES today. The new Philips Brilliance Curved UltraWide LCD Display offers a “gentle curve” with “subtle immersion effect,” featuring a 21:9 panoramic aspect ratio with over one billion color depth and UltraWide QHD 3,440 x 1,440 resolution. The display also features an ultra-narrow bezel and a built-in pair of 7W DTS stereo speakers.
EPI claims the pixel area is 2.4 times larger than that of a Full HD monitor. “The super widescreen makes the display ideal for viewing spreadsheets, editing multiple documents and running several programs at once,” notes the press release.
“Additionally, the monitor’s MultiView technology enables active dual connect and view, so that you can work with multiple devices like PC and Notebook side-by-side simultaneously, making complex multi-tasking work a breeze.”
“Typical response time is 14ms, with a brightness of 300 cd/m2,” reports Electronista. “Philips’ ‘SmartContrast’ is 50M:1, with a 178 degree viewing angle. The display boasts a 1.07 billion color gamut. Inputs are a single DisplayPort 1.2, a HDMI 2.0 port, a HDMI 1.4 port with MHL, and a standard HDMI 1.4 port. Four USB 3.0 ports provide device connectivity.”
EPI is demonstrating the Philips display (model BDM3490UC) on Level 2 of the Venetian this week (Titian 2206). Pricing and availability have yet to be announced.
