MMD, brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces an exciting addition to the line-up of displays with super-fine resolutions beyond HD. At 32 inches, the BDM3270QP display is a new size for Philips Monitors with QHD, and offers users another choice for increasing their screen space. Raising productivity with its dazzling viewing experience, the new display features QHD resolution to bring graphics and images vividly to life.

Super-fine resolution at a new 32-inch size

The new 32-inch display responds to growing demand for higher resolutions with pixel densities beyond HD at screen dimensions that appeal to users looking to scale their desktops up a level. The QHD (Quad High Definition) display offers a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels per inch (four times as many as the 720p HDTV video standard), with a desktop that provides plenty of space for managing multiple windows with detail-rich clarity. The resolution is matched by excellent colour reproduction: with 1,074 billion colors and 12-bit internal processing, the new 32-inch display gives smooth, natural colors without gradations and colour banding. The display also features Philips flicker-free technology to regulate brightness and reduce flicker for an even more comfortable viewing experience.

Thomas Schade, Vice President EMEA at MMD, says, “This 32-inch display is great for users who are up-sizing from smaller screens and lower resolutions. Users can look forward to a real sense of space, combined with the sharp, brilliant resolution of QHD. And it’s not just graphic designers, CAD designers and architects who appreciate the difference: people who routinely work with standard office applications are increasingly looking for more room to spread out when they have multiple windows open at the same time, but with the finer resolution to make that extra space work effectively.”

Superfast connectivity

With connections to high bandwidth digital sources such as DisplayPort (for data transfer speeds of up to 10.8 Gbps), HDMI and Dual link DVI, this new display enables users to experience content with zero-latency refresh in dazzling QHD clarity. Built-in stereo speakers provide high quality audio to complement the viewing experience. The display also features MultiView technology, so users can work with two devices – PC and notebook, for instance – simultaneously, and partition the screen area for viewing content from two separate streams. Since Quad HD presents 2,560 x 1,440 pixels on every inch of display space, each area of the screen retains superb sharpness and clarity even when partitioned. There is also MHL support for streaming mobile content (while charging the mobile device at the same time) and super-fast USB 3.0.

Comfort at work

With its SmartErgoBase, the display can be fully adjusted to the user’s preferred working height, with swivel and tilt functions to achieve exactly the right angle and keep people fitter and more productive for longer. The monitor base also reduces cable clutter and keeps the workspace neat and professional.

The new Philips 32-inch BDM3270QP/00 QHD display pricing and availability still to be confirmed for South Africa.
