The completely bezel-less design, frameless on all four sides, is unusual, but results in a true-flat user viewing experience that is well suited to multi-monitor set-ups and the seamless tiling of applications. Designed for creators, the 279C9 offers high visual impact and color brilliance in combination with a unique tilt, swivel, height-adjustable and pivot system that provides maximum user flexibility. This blend of high-performance, convenience and user comfort will appeal to prosumer as well as lifestyle working environments.

The globally-renowned Red Dot and iF Awards recognize products that display high quality, innovation and cutting-edge design. The prestigious Red Dot Award, for instance, can be won only by a product that shows a winning combination of features across a number of categories, including functionality; ergonomics; quality; and degree of innovation.

A combination of features

Key to the 279C9’s position as an award-winner is the monitor’s combination of immersive viewing experience, provided by a VESA-certified DisplayHDR 400 display that consistently delivers superb, ultra-clear 4K picture quality, and an ultra-slim cutting-edge design that is bezel-less on all four sides. As well, the 279C9 offers an innovative ‘SmartErgoBase’ and the convenience of a single USB-C cable for both charging and data.

Wide-viewing angle monitor

The 279C9’s IPS LED wide-view technology for image and color accuracy supports viewing angles of 178° for an optimum user experience, while natively supporting 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160), to deliver ultra-clear, detailed images for graphics applications or a financial wizard working on huge spreadsheets, immediately enlarging the range of compatible video entertainment.

Described as a 4K2K monitor, the extremely versatile 279C9 monitor has been designed for versatile productivity, with a powerful array of convenience features and a design edge that will appeal to a range of consumers, including media content creators.

Model 279C9 features a USB type-C connector that supports the Power Delivery standard. With intelligent and flexible power management, users can charge compatible laptops directly, with the slim, reversible USB-C allowing an easy, one-cable data and power connection. This means users who like to multitask can enjoy high-resolution video while transferring data at blazing speed and powering up and re-charging a notebook at the same time, or enabling convenient and direct output from a smartphone to the monitor.
