Philips launches its first 5K PC monitor

01 Apr 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Philips MMD will release its first PC monitor with a resolution of 5120x2880 pixels - also known as 5K – this month. It fully supports AdobeRGB and is priced at 1600 Euro.

Dell and Apple were the first manufacturers to launch 5K monitors. Dell launched a 27” external monitor and Apple integrated the display into its 27” iMac.

Philips is now launching its first 5K monitor with the 27-inch 275P4VYKEB. The exact resolution is 5120x2880 pixels and the panel can cover the sRGB color space (100% sRGB) and the AdobeRGB color space (99% AdobeRGB). 5K resolution has 50 percent more pixels than 4K, says Philips.

To benefit from 5K resolution on a 27-inch monitor you should opt for 2x scaling in your operating system. This will ensure that fonts and icons remain proportional (and more detailed). The latest versions of OS X as well as Windows 8.1 and 10 support proper image scaling for 4K and 5K monitors.

The panel type is PLS, which is a variant of IPS. It is characterized by accurate colors and wide viewing angles but relatively weak contrast. Philips says that it uses a true 10-bit panel as opposed to 8-bit. This means that it can pick from a palette of 1.07 billion colors (instead of 16.67m for 8-bit) from within the selected color space. The monitor should be ideal for people working with graphics, photography and other color-critical tasks.

Philips adds that the base has tilt, swivel, pivot and height adjustment options. It also has built-in speakers and the panel is flicker-free. There are three USB 3.0 ports available.

Philips 27” 275P4VYKEB will be available in Europe starting this month. No launch details were announced for the US. Follow the link for prices.
