Philips is a bit confusing these days. They just killed the Cinema 21:9 TVs and now they introduce a 21:9 PC monitor. The monitor comes with “Ambiglow” and an IPS panel.

Philips’ 21:9-format PC monitor

Philips has unveiled a slew of PC monitors at IFA 2012. Amongst the new monitors is a 29-inch monitor in the extra wide 21:9 format. What? Philips just killed the 21:9 TVs. Actually, none of the products are produced by Royal Philips in Holland. The PC monitor division was acquired by TPVision some years ago and the TV division was also recently acquired by TPVision who seems to have some trouble finding a clear direction from the beginning.

So, that is settled. Let us try to take a look at the new monitors. The 29-inch monitor is introduced as "the world's first Ambiglow" monitor and goes by the name Gioco. It is based on an IPS panel with a resolution of 2560x1080 pixels and features passive 3D technology. The 21:9 format monitor also offers USB ports. Ambiglow is a similar technology to Ambilight utilized on Philips TVs.

Philips has also unveiled a new 27-inch IPS monitor for graphic designers and photographers. The monitor has a 2560x1440 pixel resolution and a so-called Multi View function that lets users split the screen into two when more than one input is active – for example a PC and a movie player. A small light sensor automatically adjusts brightness on the panel, depending on the ambient light.

Philips also mentions a new 23-inch monitor with MHL. The MHL port allows users to connect smartphones and tablets that are MHL equipped.

Last but not least, Philips has unveiled a 3D monitor that requires no 3D glasses.

All the monitors will be available later this year. No word on price.
