Gadgets Games GITEX

MMD, a leading provider of state-of-the-art displays and the brand license partner for Philips Monitors, has unveiled its exciting new 61 cm (24″) Full HD monitor for the ultimate viewing experience in gaming.

The 144 Hz Gaming Monitor boasts an incredibly fast 144 Hz refresh rate and ultra-short pixel response time of only one millisecond for lag-free, real-time gaming experiences. Discerning gamers will also find plenty of useful auxiliary equipment to choose from like connectors, for instance.

Philips 242G5DJEBWhat makes the 144 Hz Gaming Monitor so unique, besides its extremely attractive appearance, is that it has been designed especially for gamers. This top-notch display builds on a wealth of feedback that its developers have received from partners and e-sports enthusiasts over the years.

Furthermore, it comes with a state-of-the-art TN panel that ensures extremely short response times of only one millisecond for richly detailed, extra-clear and crisp images without ghosting effects. In addition, this advanced gaming display redraws the screen up to 144 times per second, 2.4 x faster than a normal display, to deliver super-smooth, brilliant pictures.

The 144 Hz refresh rate not only minimizes eye fatigue, but also offers other key benefits like reduced input lag and more frames per second. This is particularly important when playing first-person shooters because enemy movements can be detected more quickly and more clearly.

And to further enhance the performance with different types of games, MMD has even equipped the 144 Hz Gaming Monitor with a specialized, customizable on-screen display.

The new, premium-quality Gaming Monitor that features a high-quality finish also comes with a variety of great functionalities users will love:

  1. SmartKeypad – This specially designed remote control provides quicker access to gaming pre-sets. Additional up and down function keys allow you to navigate in the OSD menu quite easily.
  2. SmartFrame – Highlights areas in which you can spot your opponents more easily by boosting the gain level of RGB in the selected area.
  3. SmartSize – Lets you change the screen view of the gaming display to suit your own personal preference.

Last, but certainly not least, an optional MHL cable lets you play back HD video and audio or even use your mobile phone. The Full HD model displays signals via a full set of connectors (VGA, Dual Link DVI, DisplayPort and universal HDMI).

The display also accommodates a USB 3.0 hub that supports not only superfast data transfers, but also offers fast charging of mobile devices. Next to 130 mm height adjustability, the tiltable monitor also features a swivel and pivot function that allows you to turn the panel by 90° and bring it into portrait format within only seconds.

This enjoyable ergonomic flexibility is complemented by the possibility of mounting the monitor on the wall. The 144 Hz Gaming Monitor is extremely energy-efficient too by using the latest LED backlights.

With consumption of only 18.58 watts in on mode (and only half a watt in stand-by), it meets key regulations like Energy Star 6.0. The new display is also manufactured without using any lead or mercury and thus qualifies for many important certificates.

The new 144 Hz Philips Gaming Monitor will be showcased during GITEX Technology Week 2013. Philips displays can be found at stand C25 at Sheikh Saeed Hall, Dubai World Trade Center, Dubai, UAE.
