    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.
