Ultra Wide-Color: An Important Feature For Accurate Color & Brilliant Image Quality

By Philips Monitors, 02 Mar 2017.

Have you ever wondered why one photo can look so vivid on one monitor, while the same picture looks so dull on another monitor?

Philips Monitors is powered by an innovative Ultra Wide-Color technology which delivers a wider range of colors for more accurate color and brilliant picture viewing. In other words, Ultra Wide-Color’s wider “color gamut” produces more natural-looking greens, vivid reds and deeper blues. In layman’s terms, you are looking at a Philips monitor that produces more colors as compared to ordinary monitors.

Ultra Wide-Color technology delivers a wider spectrum of colors for more accurate color generation.

Philips Monitors with Ultra Wide-Color technology are designed for people who would rank accurate color reproduction and superb picture quality as the top features they want in their monitors.

Why Ultra Wide-Color Matters?

Philips understands there are consumers who demand color reproduction as accurately as possible on their monitor at all times. Those who are looking to use a monitor for graphical work will probably want something that has a greater range of color. For example, in the design, printing and photography industries where color accuracy is important, a monitor that comes with Ultra Wide-Color will definitely be an important asset. But what does it mean by “Ultra Wide-Color” and how does it help? Ultra Wide-Color simply means a wider range of color area in color gamut space. It is able to store a wider range of color values, thus produces more natural-looking and vivid colors.

One important fact worth noticing is that Philips Ultra Wide-Color technology achieves its wide-color effect through hardware enhancements, rather than by fine-tuning color settings through software. Besides, the monitor is able to produces more true-to-life images by supporting a wider color gamut, which is above 85% of the NTSC gamut area as opposed to the typical 72%. Ultra Wide-Color expands on the range of colors that are perceived by users, hence bringing media entertainment, images, and even productivity more alive with this innovative technology.
