Aimed at increasing productivity and simplifying connectivity in the workplace, Philips have launched their new 243B9 display. This is a 23.8″ sized screen with an IPS technology panel, featuring a 1920 x 1080 resolution. It is equipped with a USB type-C connection for single cable connectivity. User comfort and a reduced environmental impact are guaranteed as well, thanks to the adjustable SmartErgoBase, energy-saving PowerSensor and 100% recyclable packaging.
Designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, the Philips 243B9 offers the speed and flexibility of USB-C docking with power delivery. With a single slim, reversible connector, users can charge their compatible laptop, watch high-resolution video, and transfer data at super-speed. This monitor also comes with an HDMI input, meaning users can enjoy high-quality digital video and audio transmitted over a single cable from AV sources including DVD players, video cameras and PCs. Audio output is made possible via the integrated speakers.
The Philips 243B9 is also equipped with the SmartErgoBase, a stand that offers height-adjustability up to 150 mm, tilt and swivel functions as well as 90° rotation (pivot) to allow users the best possible posture, plus an integrated cable management.
In addition to comfort, performance, and flexibility, the Philips 243B9 is also energy-efficient – it only consumes 12.8 W in Eco mode – and compliant with a number of environmental standards and certifications including EnergyStar 7.0, TCO Edge, and RoHS. A built-in Power Sensor automatically detects the user’s presence and adjusts the monitor’s brightness accordingly for longer monitor life and energy savings of up to 80%, while the Zero Power Switch ensures zero energy consumption when the monitor is turned off, thus further reducing the monitor’s carbon footprint. The Philips 243B9 features a PVC/BFR free housing that uses 85% post-consumer recycled plastic. Moreover, the monitor is totally free of mercury or lead, and its packaging consists of 100% recyclable material.
Spec wise the 23.8″ screen features an IPS panel with 4ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 16.7m colour depth and a standard sRGB gamut (104% coverage). VGA, DisplayPort, HDMI 1.4 and USB type-C connections are provided along with a 4 port USB 3.2 hub, audio input and headphone output.
Smart, flexible, and sustainable, the Philips 243B9 monitor will be available from January 2020 with an RRP of £199.
