Thinking about changing to a new monitor? How about getting a curved one? The introduction of curved monitors has literally changed how we look at and experience display technologies. Let us introduce you to our diverse range of curved monitors - the - 499P9H1, 349P7FUBEB, 328E9QJAB and 328M6FJRMB, as well as what they can do to enhance your home entertainment.

More immersive viewing
'Immersion' is the latest buzzword in display technology, but what does it actually mean? Immersion here refers to a sense of deep mental involvement in a media, whereby the viewer starts to forget that they are watching a screen. In the world of entertainment, and particularly gaming, immersion has become a new golden standard for both manufacturers and consumers. One of the latest products engineered to replicate this immersive effect is curved monitors, which takes advantage of three dimensions and our peripheral vision to deliver a fantastic new viewing experience.

Curved monitors are taken to the next level with the massive 499P9H1 monitor, which is like to high-performance monitors in one.

Quality right to the edge
When images are enlarged on a big flat screen, they tend to become blurred, particularly around the edges. This is not necessarily caused by a poor image source, but rather the distortion caused by the physics of light projection. Flat screens project their images in a straight line, some of which will go past the viewer's peripheral vision, this is what causes the perception of distortion. Meanwhile, a curved monitor projects their images towards the viewer, which limits perceivable distortions.

A wider field of view
One of the causes of eye strain when using flat monitors is that the screen goes beyond the viewer's natural field of view. This means that the eyes strain to take in a flat image, particularly a large one. In contrast, the curvature of curved monitors gives them a wider field of view. This makes them easier on the eyes, as they allow the viewer to take in an entire image at once without much ocular exertion.

Now that we've learned about the benefits of curved monitors, Let's meet the team of Philips Curved Monitors!
