THE Philips this week launched a new 32-inch 4K (3840 × 2160 pixels) monitor with Ultra HD technology, aimed at design and editing professionals. Despite being announced almost a year ago, the Philips Brilliance he was only able to reach the market now – still, he has some features that don’t let him eat dust for the competition.
Among the characteristics of the monitor, the main one may be the USB-C connection which lets you recharge, view high-resolution videos and transfer data at high speed from the MacBook and MacBook Pro – all at the same time and over a single cable.
In more detail, the USB-C port is fully reversible and also supports DisplayPort technology; four USB-A 3.0 ports and one port for RJ-45 Ethernet cable. The monitor can deliver up to 60W for the MacBook or MacBook Pro (13 ″), eliminating the need to connect the notebook to the outlet while the external display is used. In addition to recharging your MacBook, two of the USB-A ports also offer fast charging for mobile devices.
The monitor supports typical brightness of 400 nits (and maximum brightness of 600 nits); the static contrast ratio is 3,000: 1 – expandable to 80,000,000: 1 with technology SmartContrast. In addition, the screen offers horizontal and vertical viewing angles of up to 178 ° and can be rotated to be fully vertical.
Philips Brilliance has also received Vesa’s DisplayHDR 600 certification, which means that it supports HDR10 – one of the first standards of the HDR format. Although it is not an HDR10 +, it offers great video transmission quality and also for games.
Generally, brighter lights are brighter, so they can cause damage to the eyes – in addition to affecting a person’s sleep quality. To prevent this problem, Philips has also implemented the Night Shift LowBlue Mode, which helps to reduce the amount of blue (white) light rays emitted by the monitor.
Philips will begin sales of the Brilliance monitor in Europe in November. In the US, the monitor is expected to cost $ 620, but there is no availability yet. The manufacturer also stated that the prices and specifications of the different monitors in the Brilliance 328P6 series may vary depending on the region.
