The Gaming Life

By Philips Monitors, 01 Feb 2019.

Did you know that around the world, roughly 1.2 billion people play mobile, console or online games? Transcending age and gender, gaming has become a big part of people's online activities and today's lifestyle. Understanding that consumers want display monitors that can enhance their gaming experience, Philips Monitors has developed the Momentum Series. Let us walk you through the top gaming features of our 436M6VBPAB and 278M6FJMB monitors.

The 436M6VBPAB combines ultra sharp images, an immersive halo of light, astonishing color and enhanced surround sound to give you an awesome console gaming experience. 

Your companion in console gaming - The Philips Momentum 436M6VBPAB Monitor
The 436M6VBPAB is a 4K HDR display that offers a new level of entertainment immersion, thanks to its innovative Ambiglow lighting. By casting a halo of light to illuminate the area behind the monitor, Ambiglow enlarges the screen and extends the action, while intensifying your entertainment. This immersive halo of light is also intuitive, as a fast processor continuously analyzes incoming image content, adapting the color and brightness of the emitted light to match the image. You can even change the ambiance and make adjustments that suit your personal preference.

This ensures a unique new dimension to your viewing experience for movies, sports or console gaming. This expansive display also incorporates VESA-certified DisplayHDR 1000, which produces astonishing brightness, contrast and colors. As a result, each game you play is rendered in a fuller palette of new colors, accompanied by a super high peak brightness and deeper, more nuanced blacks. This depth makes images come to life and provides a dramatically different visual experience that engages your senses. To accompany these stunning visuals, the 436M6VBPAB is equipped with DTS Sound for a truly immersive virtual surround. DTS Sound is designed to optimize all forms of music playback, complete with rich bass, dialog enhancement and maximized volume levels free of any clipping or distortion.

Experience effortlessly smooth PC gaming with the 278M6FJMB, as it's powered by AMD FreeSync and 144Hz refresh rates. 

Your Partner in PC gaming - The Philips Momentum 278M6FJMB Monitor
The 278M6FJMB is a curved display that makes fast action look great on screen, thanks to its Quad HD 2560 × 1440 resolution. This extra pixel count, which is four times more than normal HD (720p), ensures this monitor provides images that are crisper, clearer and sharper.

While you'll appreciate the image clarity, as you play your favorite PC game, the action won't be quite as thrilling without AMD FreeSync technology. With its smooth quick refresh and ultra-fast response time, it eliminates choppy gameplay and broken frames to give you fluid, artefact-free performance at virtually any framerate.

And to keep up with those intense, competitive games, this monitor provides 144Hz refresh rates. As it redraws the screen image up to 144 times per second, it ensures lag free, ultra-smooth and brilliant images so that you can easily target and hit opponents without missing any of those critical moments.
