Philips has launched its new Brilliance 499P9H 32:9 SuperWide curved display on the regional market. This 49-inch display also offers productivity enhancing features such as USB-C and pop-up webcam with Windows Hello, to deliver performance and convenience.

The 32:9 SuperWide screen has been designed to replace multiscreen setups, offering a resolution of 5120-by-1440 pixels. Its MultiView enables simultaneous dual connect and view, while the 1800r curved display offers a more immersive experience. It also supports Adaptive-Sync technology for a smooth viewing experience.

You can experience effortless gaming experience at any frame-rate with the Adaptive-Sync technology, that offers a smooth quick refresh and ultra-fast response time. This Philips display features a built-in USB type-C docking station with power delivery. Its slim, reversible USB-C connector allows for easy, one-cable docking.

Users can connect all their peripherals such as keyboard, mouse and RJ-45 Ethernet cable to the monitor’s docking station. Simply connect your notebook and this monitor with a single USB-C cable to watch high-resolution video and transfer super-speed data, while powering up and re-charging your notebook at the same time.

The display also allows you to game effortlessly with the Adaptive-Sync technology. You get fluid, artefact-free performance at virtually any frame rate with Adaptive-Sync technology, while also benefitting from smooth quick refresh and ultra-fast response time.

With its Compact Ergo Base, you can tilt, swivel and height-adjust for an ideal viewing position. The base is a people-friendly Philips monitor base that tilts, swivels and height-adjusts so each user can position the monitor for maximum viewing comfort and efficiency.

With the Brilliance 499P9H, you can now securely sign in through its pop-up webcam with Windows Hello.

Phillips’ innovative and secure webcam pops up when you need it and securely tucks back into the monitor when you are not using it. The webcam is also equipped with advanced sensors for Windows Hello facial recognition, which conveniently logs you into your Windows devices in less than 2 seconds, three times faster than a password.

The VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 delivers a significant step-up from normal SDR displays. Unlike, other ‘HDR compatible’ screens, true DisplayHDR 400 produces astonishing brightness, contrast and colors. With global dimming and peak brightness up-to 400 nits, images come to life with notable highlights while featuring deeper, more nuanced blacks. It renders a fuller palette of rich new colors, delivering a visual experience that engages your senses.

Studies have shown that just as ultra-violet rays can cause eye damage, shortwave-length blue light rays from LED displays can cause eye damage and affect vision over time. Hence, Philips’ LowBlue Mode allows you to experience easy-on-the-eyes productivity. Developed for wellbeing, the Philips LowBlue Mode setting uses a smart software technology to reduce harmful shortwave blue light.

The display also comes with Flicker-Free technology. Due to the way brightness is controlled on LED-backlit screens, some users experience flicker on their screen which causes eye fatigue. Philips Flicker-Free technology applies a new solution to regulate brightness and reduce flicker for more comfortable viewing.

You also get support for a wider than usual colour gamut, covering 121% of the sRGB or 91% of the Adobe RGB colour spaces. Philips also ships the monitor factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. The Brilliance 499P9H 32:9 SuperWide curved display has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Award for Product Design. The display impressed a panel of 40 judges with its innovative design, beating off competition from more than 6000 entries from 59 countries.

Established in 1891, Philips is one of the largest electronic companies in the world and a pioneer in technology and innovation. Guided and inspired by our vision and brand line ‘innovation and you’, our experts commit to improve people’s live and make the world more sustainable through meaningful innovation. At Philips Monitors, we strive to design and engineer displays that combine contemporary styling and premium user-friendly features, with the aim to satisfy our customers’ wide spectrum of needs.
