Smart classrooms, smarter students

As many areas of modern life increasingly migrate into the digital space, the education sector is not an exception. Fuelled by the requirements of the pandemic, e-learning and e-teaching is becoming more prevalent than ever. Writing code snippets, drawing, presenting and many PC-based activities and classes are now part of the curriculum of many schools.
 
Philips monitors’ innovative and visionary portfolio has a great number of products that meet the needs of the current generation of students and teachers, with sustainable products and power-saving features. Monitors with built-in high-resolution webcams and noise-cancelling microphones close the technological gap that the institutions face. Large 40” displays with easy one-cable USB-C connectivity bring interaction to the forefront. And 15.6” portable monitors enable teachers to engage with and teach their students even when on the go.
 
Meeting essential needs
From teachers’ desks to the administrative staff or in the computer lab, the 24” Philips 242S9JML or the 27” Philips 272S9JAL fit the bill perfectly and affordably. With a sleek, 3-sides borderless design, both models fast forward dated schools and offices into the present. With an anti-glare coating, 300 cd/m² peak brightness and 178°/178° viewing angles, these models can easily shine in bright classrooms. The Full HD resolution delivers crisp images, while its VA panel reproduces vivid colours and a rich contrast ratio of 3000:1, bringing pictures to life. Certified with EnergyStar 8.0 and EPEAT, the monitors are mercury-free and use PVC/BFR free housing. To ensure a sustainable refitting of schools and universities, both models use 85% post-consumer recycled plastics, and use 100% recyclable packaging material.
 
See and be seen
The new B1U models continue to make e-teaching and e-learning a much better and possibly preferred experience even without the pressures of a pandemic. Fitted with a 5 MP webcam and noise-cancelling microphone, the monitors are instant video-conferencing machines. Thanks to the built-in USB-C docking station, users can simply connect their laptop, allowing them to share the screen to a larger canvas, charge their laptop and use the monitor’s webcam as well. The hi-res webcam also supports Windows Hello, allowing users to login to their private session under 2 seconds simply by looking at the camera and without entering a single password. With the built-in Gigabit Ethernet port, the connected laptop can also access the local school or university network securely and faster via the USB-C connection.
 
The Philips 24B1U5301H offers a 24” IPS panel with high colour accuracy and wide viewing angles, in crisp Full HD resolution. The USB-C port supports up to 10 Gbit/s bandwidth, while HDMI and DisplayPort offer further connectivity options. The SmartErgoBase is an ergonomic stand with height adjustment that increases inclusivity for all users and offers a comfortable use. Furthermore, the PowerSensor reduces the monitor’s brightness when its user has left the workstation. What is more, the LightSensor can adjust brightness to the ambient light, making sure the screen is visible day and night. Certified with TÜV Eye Comfort, the monitor supports eye-saving features such as LowBlue mode as well.
 
On a larger scale, the Philips 27B1U5601H is equipped with a 27” IPS panel that delivers rich and popping colours, in a sharper QHD (2560x1440) resolution. For even more productivity and to replace clunky multi-monitor setups, the Philips 34B1U5600CH features a curved 34” ultrawide VA panel, in an impressive3440x1440 resolution with a high 110 ppi pixel density. Its 21:9 aspect ratio is ideal for simultaneously fitting more windows onto a single screen. The 1500R curvature of the monitor makes for comfortable viewing across the entire field of vision right to the edges.
 
Fit for artists, creators, or programmers

Philips monitors also offer larger sizes, such as the Philips 40B1U5600 with its unique 40” display size in a 21:9 aspect ratio. This flat IPS panel with 3440x1440 resolution is much better suited to computer aided design tasks thanks to its rich and accurate colours (average Delta E below 2) and the lack of curvature which is not desired in such applications. Its DisplayHDR 400 support enables playback of HDR content, and with a SmartUniformity setting, this monitor is adapted to design and art classes, too. All the productivity-increasing, future-proof USB-C connectivity and high-res webcam solutions are of course included in the largest model as well.
 
Learning on the commute
Every day, teachers and students commute to their schools and universities, sometimes taking a much longer portion of their day. And covering even greater distances, some exchange students return to their home countries between or even during term times. Just perfect for these occasions, is the portable monitor Philips 16B1P3302.
 
Wherever a desk-sized monitor is too inconvenient, the 15.6” 16B1P3302 can come to the rescue, with a display size similar to a laptop display. It can slot into backpacks or laptop bags easily and can instantly create a multi-monitor setup on the go. This can easily improve productivity simply anywhere, such as watching a video class on the laptop display and taking notes on the secondary portable display or vice versa. With the USB-C connectivity the display can be effortlessly connected to modern laptops and doesn’t require a separate power connection. And for peace of mind for those who still own a legacy laptop: thanks to the DisplayLink technology and the included dual USB mesh cable, users can still extend the display to the portable monitor via the common USB-A connection. With its Full HD resolution, this portable monitor produces crisp images and text, whilst the 250 nits brightness and anti-glare coating, ensure that the 16B1P3302 is usable in almost any setting.
 
For educational institutions that need to take the next step in their IT infrastructure, Philips monitors offer the ideal technology for productivity.
