Last month Philips introduced a pair of 40-inch ultrawide monitors aimed at office work. Now, the company launches two almost identical desktop monitors in 32:9 superwide format. The devices with the model names 45B1U6900CH and 45B1U6900C have the same panel, design, base, and ergonomic features. Each of the two monitors has a 44.5-inch VA display with a 1500R curvature and a super-ultra-wide resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels. The display delivers a maximum brightness of 450 nits and is also VESA DisplayHDR 400 certified.
The static contrast is given as 3,000:1. According to Philips, the display should also be suitable for creative work. The models cover 123% of the sRGB color space and 107% of the DCI-P3 color space.
The response time of the panel is 4 ms (grey to gray) with a maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz including Adaptive Sync support. The display can be adjusted with the stand by up to 150 mm in height, swiveled by +/-45 degrees, or tilted -5/+15 degrees. The extendable telescopic hook on the left side of the display, on which headsets and headphones can be hung, is very interesting.
Pop-up Camera and Ports Differences
Let’s move from the similarities to the differences between the two monitors. The Philips 45B1U6900CH has a pop-up camera at the top of the screen, with a resolution of 5 megapixels. There is also a noise-canceling microphone. The monitor is also Windows Hello certified. The 45B1U6900C model lacks this webcam solution. There are also some differences when it comes to connectivity. Both models feature a pair of HDMI 2.0 inputs, a DisplayPort 1.4 input with HBR3, a USB Type-C port that delivers 100W of power and supports DP Alt mode, as well as a LAN port that offers Wake on Lan and operates at 1Gbps.
