Five Ways this 32:9 SuperWide Monitor Stands Out

By Philips Monitors, 22 Mar 2021.

As requirements for display monitors have grown more demanding to suit complex and diverse consumer needs, monitors are becoming bigger, wider and better.

A perfect example of this is Philips’ own 32:9 SuperWide curved monitor, the 498P9, which packs the power of two high-performance monitors in one. Winner of both the iF Design and Reddot Awards, this expansive monitor showcases exceptional design and tech innovations for productivity, comfort and smooth action.

1. Double the presence and power

This eye-catching monitor from our P Line has a commanding presence, thanks to its expansive 48.8” size. Featuring a 32:9 SuperWide screen, it is designed to take the place of two full-sized high-performance monitors. But the best part is, you won’t have to deal with the hassle of complicated multi-screen setups or bezels in your field of view.

For rich and sharp visuals, this monitor is equipped with Dual QHD (5120 x 1440 pixels) resolution, while its gentle 1800R curvature provides you with a more immersive viewing experience. This not only makes this monitor awesome for multimedia, but opens wide the possibilities for you to take advantage of.

2. Productivity-enhancing features

Since it offers the dimensions and power of two high-performance monitors, the 498P9 is a great companion for enhancing productivity. For example, its large screen enables you to make side-by-side comparisons or view several applications at once on the same screen.

To make multi-tasking easier to tackle, there is MultiView, which enables simultaneous dual connect and view. This allows you to work on multiple devices at once, such as your PC and notebook. Plus, you can also easily switch between different sources using the integrated built-in KVM switch.

Combining eye care technologies and ergonomic design, this monitor provides comfortable productivity.

Among its user-friendly features are innovative eye care technologies like Flicker-free technology and LowBlue Mode that protect the eyes from potential fatigue and harmful effects that may come as a result of prolonged exposure.

Meanwhile, its Compact Ergo Base enables ergonomic adjustments to be made, so you can tilt, swivel and height-adjust the monitor to achieve your ideal viewing position.
