Philips Launch New 55″ 4K Gaming Monitor With Bowers & Wilkins Speakers
Philips has expanded its big-screen console gaming monitor range with the new 55″ 558M1RY, boasting 4K display and Bowers & Wilkins speakers.
The product will release in Australia in mid-September for A$2,499, with retailers to be announced.
Falling within Philips’ entertainment-focused Momentum high-end monitors range, the 558M1RY is specifically designed for gamers and home entertainment enthusiasts.
The monitor includes a full-range Bowers & Wilkins soundbar, and is equipped with ‘Ambiglow’ to automatically project a halo of coloured light onto the walls behind, matching the content displayed.
For example, shades of blue light would project onto the walls behind when watching a documentary about oceans.
The 4K display monitor offers a resolution of 3840 x 2160, with a refresh rate of 120Hz.
Gaming is enhanced via Low Input Lag (automatically reducing delay between device inputs and on-screen display), and made more comfortable via Flicker-free technology to protect eye strain over long periods.
MultiView technology also allows two separate devices to display content on the same screen synonymously.
