Getting Down to Business

Although the business monitor market is saturated with offerings from Dell, Lenovo, Compaq and many more, Philips has decided to introduce their own alternatives. In the P, B and S lines, consumers have ample choice.

The P Line - Professional Monitors

The high-end business monitors from Philips, the P Line brings the best possible performance and places it at the disposal of professionals. The 27-inch 273P3LPHEB model is targeted at designers and CAD users. There are also 23-inch and 24-inch models with USB 2.0 ports on the monitors. The 24-inch 241P3LYEB also comes with a DisplayPort connector.

With 27 inches of screen real estate, LED technology, and HDMI support, the 273P3LPHEB is suitable for creative and design work.

You can easily tilt and swivel to get an ideal viewing angle. The 27-incher has a 110mm height adjustment.


The B Line - Business Line

Much like the E line from the consumer range, Philips expects this series to permeate the business market and find its way onto every work desk. The B Line also sports 70mm height adjustment and onboard speakers, making it an all-round solution for the workplace.

The 21.5-inch model sports PowerSensor that detects user presence.


The S Line - Small Business Line

The S line is ideal for small firms; it offers good quality at an attractive low price.

The S line is targeted at small businesses who want a performing monitor at a low price. The 21.5-inch 221S3LSB is EPEAT Silver certified.


Philips ErgoSensor

Also displayed for the first time was Philips ErgoSensor. The technology is still under development, but it is meant to be an improvement of the PowerSensor that is already implemented in the monitors. The infra-red sensor is now replaced with a front-facing camera.

Here, you can see a user with a tilted neck using the monitor. The ErgoSensor will detect this posture and remind the user to correct it.

This lets the ErgoSensor monitor data such as your body position, posture and duration of time you have spent in front of the monitor. A monitor fitted with ErgoSensor can give you advise to adjust your seating position or posture.

The ErgoSensor collects real time data about the user and their usage patterns with the help of a user-facing camera at the top of the monitor.

The ErgoSensor tells you to move small distances and correct your posture, based on what it sees, by showing messages on the screen. Philips aims to reduce the incurrence of repeated stress injuries, eye fatigue and other monitor usage-related issues.
