The Taiwanese firm MMD, which produces monitors under the Philips brand, announced the arrival of a 49-inch model 498P9 in Ukrainian retail. The device is based on a curved VA matrix with a resolution of 5120 x 1440 pixels (aspect ratio 32: 9) and is positioned by the vendor as a full replacement for two 27-inch screens with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The monitor is equipped with built-in KVM to quickly switch mouse / keyboard between two signal sources.
The Philips 498P9’s specs are typical of today’s VA displays: 450 cd / m² peak brightness, 121% SRGB color gamut, 3000: 1 static contrast ratio, 5ms gray-to-gray response time and refresh rate 70 Hz. The radius of curvature of the matrix is 1800 mm.
On the back of the monitor, there are HDMI 2.0b (x2) and DisplayPort 1.4 video inputs, a USB 3.2 hub for four ports (including one with a fast charging function), a 5-watt stereo speaker and a 3.5 mm audio jack for headphones. The advantages of the novelty should also include support for VESA Adaptive-Sync technology.
The ultra-wide monitor Philips 498P9 will appear in Ukrainian stores in August with a recommended price of UAH 30,000.
