By Philips Monitors, 13 Oct 2020.

To help you make the most out of our UltraWide, SuperWide and UltraClear 4K UHD monitors, we have included Philips MultiView, a feature that enables you to have up to four systems on one screen.

The flexibility and productivity that MultiView offers is applicable to various fields, including website programming, investment analysis, multimedia, traffic monitoring, accounting, live streaming, security surveillance, geographic information systems and more. In this article, we will introduce you to MultiView’s various applications and possibilities.

Management and security systems

In big operations, there will always be a need to keep an eye on what’s happening in real time, be it a factory floor, retail outlet, computer server room, etc. With Philips MultiView, you can use the Picture-by-Picture (PbP) mode to monitor up to four systems on one monitor, which would be especially useful in control rooms, where there is a lot of square footage to cover.

Monitoring traffic and transport networks

Philips MultiView can be indispensible when it comes to monitoring the constant flow of traffic that goes in and out of city centers and highways, as well as the complex networks of public transportation such as busses, trains and MRTs. While MultiView’s PbP feature can display multiple locations at once on the same monitor, the Picture-in-Picture mode (PiP) enables you to watch a live feed via a floating window while you are working on your PC.

Home security

On a much smaller scale, the PiP mode on Philips monitors can also come in handy for home security. For example, with the help of WiFi cameras, parents of young children and pet owners can keep an eye on the going-ons at home, while they are working on their Philips monitor with MultiView at the office.

Creative industries and website programming

Ever wished you could link up multiple devices to a monitor and work on them simultaneously? With Philips MultiView, you can! This feature is especially useful for side-by-side comparisons in work such as graphic and industrial design, video editing, audiovisual animation and other creative endeavors. MultiView can also give team productivity a boost, making virtual collaborations, as well as small to medium video conferences, much easier.

Content creation

MultiView is a great tool for social media influencers who want to live stream to platforms like Twitch, YouTube, Instagram and Facebook using OBS Studio. By dividing the screen, MultiView will enable you to do a live stream and monitor the comments section to get responses from your followers in real time.

Trading rooms and investment analysis

Financial wizards like investment analysts and accounting professionals need to pore through a large number of graphs, reports and spreadsheets. Philips MultiView, especially on an UltraWide 21:9 format monitor, will enable more productivity by providing more room for side-by-side comparisons and viewable spreadsheet columns.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Important information on the Earth’s surface, such as populations, vegetation, infrastructure, landscapes and pollution are captured, stored, checked and displayed in Geographic Information Systems or GIS. Such a complex system requires a monitor that can display data accurately, consistently and effectively. Philips MultiView not only presents pertinent information from various sources, but also does so in impressive image quality.
