The ErgoSensor relies on a small camera at the top that registers:
  • Viewing distance: ErgoSensor measures the distance from the user’s eyes to the screen and gives advice on the optimal position.

    The monitor uses a TN panel with 1920x1080 pixel resolution and edge LED that also helps reduce power consumption. Philips has also incorporated a small sensor that measures ambient lighting conditions in order to adjust brightness levels on the monitor panel. A sensor is also used to turn off the monitor when the user leaves – and to turn back on when the user returns.

    Lastly, Philips mentions a base with height, tilt, rotation and pivot adjustment. All cables can be hidden inside. Connections include D-SUB, DVI, DisplayPort and four USB ports.

    The Philips ErgoSensor monitor, dubbed 241P4LRYES, is available soon in Europe for 339 Euro and in the US for 450 USD.
