With temperatures hovering around freezing, evenings that are pitch dark, and weeks of winter still to come, we are likely to be spending lots of our after-hours time in our own living rooms. To make these bleak midwinter days brighter and more entertaining, we have prepared some display tips for quality time at home:
Brighten up grey days
Midwinter is arguably the only time of the year when it is possible to be a couch potato without feeling guilty. Although it might be dark and freezing outside, there is an easy way to prevent a bad mood and brighten up the living space: With the stylish Philips E7 series displays and their brilliant images, even the greyest of days will eventually light up. Thanks to a wide colour gamut with 82 % NTSC and 99 % sRGB, the E7 line-up brings colour to the home and is perfect for hour-long home entertainment such as catching up with the latest season of your favorite series. Moreover, the viewing angles are extra wide, so even with a whole group of people in the room; everyone will have a great view of the screen from whatever angle.
Wellbeing for the eyes
Apart from socialising, winter is also traditionally a time of the year to recharge batteries, relax and take care of our wellbeing. Our eyes also deserve some winter wellness. The trouble is that, at this dark time of the year, people are more likely than ever to be spending time in front of display devices. All this screen time makes eyes tired and long-term overexposure to blue light from LED displays can damage the vision. The Philips SoftBlue technology in the E-series displays mitigates this risk by eliminating the potentially harmful wavelengths without sacrificing the original colour. Users therefore protect their eyes and still benefit from accustomed picture quality, brightness and colour fidelity.
Discover 4K UHD
If you are spending lots of time at home, it is worthwhile to think about moving to 4K UHD resolution, four times the resolution of Full HD. Even the smallest display in the range, the 23.8-inch Philips 241P6VPJKEB, provides extra screen space (and fantastic quality) for videos and photos, and the USB 3.0 hub with 5 Gb/s transfer speed ensures that there is no waiting for content to load. Perfect conditions to edit your latest videos or photos and to review your summer and autumn memories.
All of the Philips 4K UHD displays integrate perfectly with the smart devices that people already have. Friends and family can hook up their smartphones to the HDMI 2.0 port and share photos from the last Christmas party (or the recent ski trip), side-by-side, if preferred: MultiView makes it even possible to view images from two separate sources at the same time. And phone owners also benefit from a quick recharge while their phones are attached to the port via an MHL cable. The displays also facilitate virtual get-togethers, with the built-in webcam and integrated microphone allowing users to chat with friends wherever they are.
Create a magical atmosphere
Philips Moda displays with the Ambiglow Plus base have winter wellbeing in mind. The base creates a halo of light around the display, adjusting colour and brightness to what is displayed on the screen. It also brings beautiful lighting to the room, with colours set to preference: a warm glow in the evening or brighter energising hues during daylight hours, particularly for those times when it is so gloomy that the lights stay on all day. The design is stylish, complementing rather than dominating the living space. The edge-to-edge infinity glass and narrow border create a seamless appearance and make for minimal distraction when viewing.
Winter does not need to be a time to endure. With a fantastic viewing experience in the living room to share with family and friends, it might easily turn into the brightest season of all.
