Whether you are in the physical or virtual world, space is at its premium and size does matter. At Philips Monitors, we understand that screen size can help to expand your horizons, as well as possibilities. To bring you the very best of display technology in terms of size and performance, Philips Monitors is proud to introduce the 499P9H1 - our Philips Brilliance 32:9 SuperWide curved LCD display.

Experience the power of two high-performance monitors in one, with the massive 499P9H1 monitor.

Wide open possibilities

Measuring a staggering 48.8", the 499P9H1 is designed to be equal to the size of two 27" QHD monitors. With a 32:9 aspect ratio and 5120 x 1440 resolution, this monitor enables you to possess the power of two high-performance monitors in one. It is designed to replace multiscreen setups for massive wide view, which is especially ideal for multi-tasking, precision work such as image or video editing, as well as gaming.


Multi-tasking has never looked as good as it does on the 499P9H1, with ample room to spread out and not a detail amiss.

Expand your horizons

Designed with a 1800R curve, this massive display not only provides an immersive wrap-around effect, but also focuses around you for a more intimate and personal viewing experience. It also expands your horizons for what you can achieve, with its productivity-enhancing features.  One of its standout features is MultiView, which enables active dual connect and view at the same time. Its Picture-in-Picture (PiP) feature separates the screen into two parts, displaying content from two source devices, one on the main screen and another in an inset window. Meanwhile, its Picture-by-Picture (PbP) function separates the screen in half to display output from two different source devices side-by-side simultaneously.

You will also appreciate its built-in USB 3.1 type-C docking station with power delivery. The slim, reversible USB-C connector allows for easy, one-cable docking that simplifies connections to all your peripherals. You can also connect your notebook to this monitor with a single USB-C cable, to watch high resolution videos, transfer super speed data and power up your notebook at the same time. In addition, this monitor also provides two HDMI and two DisplayPort connections.

Hidden in the frame of this monitor, is Philips' innovative and secure pop-up webcam, which pops up when you need it and tucks away when it's not in use. The webcam is also equipped with advanced sensors for Windows Hello, which employs facial recognition that conveniently logs you into your Windows devices in less than 2 seconds.

The user-friendly features of the 499P9H1 provides you with maximum viewing comfort for a better work day.

Packed with user-friendly features

A monitor as big as the 499P9H1 may seem intimidating at first, but rest assured that we have included a host of user-friendly features to make this huge monitor an excellent companion. Firstly, avid gamers will appreciate its Philips Adaptive-Sync technology, which ensures effortlessly smooth gameplay with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.

This RedDot Award 2018 winner also cares for your wellbeing, thanks to the incorporation of eye care technologies such as Flicker-free and LowBlue Mode. The former reduces screen flickering to combat eye fatigue that can also lead to headaches and physical strain, while the latter provides easy on-the-eyes productivity by reducing harmful shortwave blue light.

Last, but not least, this massive monitor has a Compact Ergo Base that tilts, swivels and height adjusts. This enables you to position the monitor to your liking, for maximum viewing comfort and efficiency. Using the 499P9H1, you can work with multiple devices simultaneously to make complex multi-tasking work a breeze. There is little doubt that this large and in charge monitor will deliver the performance and convenience you expect.

There is so much more to discover about the expansive 499P9H1.
