Smart Power

The backlight intensity can be controlled and pre-set by the system to reduce the power consumption by up to 50%, which saves substantially on energy costs.

Network Controllability: RS232

Network controllability allows user to control and adjust monitors remotely through RS232 protocol.

Compliant with RoHS Standards

Philips designs and produces display products in compliance with strict Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) standards that restrict lead and other toxic substances that can harm the environment.

Advanced Anti Image Sticking

Static images left on-screen for extended periods of time may leave a "ghost image" or image sticking effect on LCD displays. Although image sticking in LCD displays is not permanent, you want to prevent this to happen, especially in locations where content is shown 24/7.

Optical Multitouch

A brand new level of client interaction is now possible thanks to the integrated optical touch screen. The sensors on the edge of the screen give you perfect clarity whilst at the same time offering dual touch (multi-touch with Windows 7), opening up all kinds of possibilities for new, interactive applications.

Smart Insert

Unique to the Philips range of signage displays, Smart Insert is a slight indentation on the rear of your display in to which you can slide a Small Form Factor (SFF) PC, without increasing the overall depth of the unit. Ideal when you want a completely integrated and professionally mounted solution.
