Amsterdam, 14 January 2019 – MMD, the leading display specialist and brand license partner for Philips monitors, announces the imminent release of the Philips 241B7QGJEB Full HD monitor. This 24″ (23.8”) LCD monitor is the new benchmark for green monitors, offering ecologically-minded professionals a powerful tool for boosting performance at work while respecting the environment. In addition to its industry-first energy efficiency, fully recyclable packaging, and compliance with multiple international environmental standards, the Philips 241B7QGJEB offers users a full range of high-performance and intelligent ergonomic features. These include Full HD and IPS technology, SmartImage, SmartContrast, and SmartResponse, the USB 3.0 standard, integrated speakers, and the SmartErgo base, which together ensure complete user comfort and convenience.

The world’s greenest monitor

The Philips 241B7QGJEB monitor supports Philips’ long-standing commitment to sustainability and the environment. The greenest monitor ever created, it was specifically designed to have the lowest environmental impact possible. Composed of lightweight, 85% post-consumer recycled plastics with TCO Certified Edge, the Philips 241B7QGJEB is entirely free of harmful substances such as lead, mercury, halogen, and PVC/BFR. In addition, all plastic body parts, metal chassis parts, and packing materials are 100% recyclable. This Philips monitor thus supports the circular economy while helping to curb global resource consumption and all associated transportation emissions. As a result, the Green Electric Council awarded this monitor with the EPEAT ecolabel certification, testifying to its green design and performance.

A sustainable gateway to productivity

Professionals in all industries want technology that works for them, and the Philips 241B7QGJEB is a top performer offering quality and comfort in addition to sustainability. Full HD resolution and an IPS panel mean exceptionally clear, crisp images that can be viewed from nearly any angle. An ultra-narrow bezel ensures effortless tiling, while innovations such as SmartImage, SmartContrast, and SmartResponse guarantee peak picture and video quality at all times. And because long hours in front of the computer are often synonymous with fatigue, the Philips 241B7QGJEB comes equipped with effective solutions to maximise user comfort. These include an anti-glare, low reflection monitor surface as well as LowBlue mode and Flicker-free technology for a better visualisation while working; in addition to a fully adjustable SmartErgo base and VESA mount to allow users the freedom to choose a position that suits them.

The world’s most energy-efficient monitor

Energy efficiency lies at the heart of ensuring a smaller carbon footprint, and in this area as well, the Philips 241B7QGJEB is a cut above the rest. Equipped with an array of power-saving technologies, this monitor delivers substantial energy reduction—a benefit to the environment as well as to users’ pocketbooks. Among these high-performance low-consumption technologies is the PowerSensor, which determines the presence or absence of the user via harmless infrared signals and automatically reduces monitor brightness accordingly. This innovation alone is responsible for as much as 80% energy cost savings. But there’s more—the Philips 241B7QGJEB also features a new, low-power backlit design for optimal brightness with minimal consumption, LightSensor technology that senses ambient light and adjusts screen brightness automatically, and a Zero Power Switch that puts an end to the latent energy consumption that can occur in conventional monitors even when switched off. The monitor consumption is 11 watts measured with EnergyStar 7.0 and the A++ energy grade further underscore the unparalleled energy efficiency of the Philips 241B7QGJEB.

“Philips is dedicated to providing users with high-performance technology that combines innovation with sustainability. The Philips 241B7QGJEB is the ideal choice for professionals seeking to improve their productivity in a responsible, ecological way.” – Stefan Sommer, Director of Marketing & Business Management Europe at MMD.

The Philips 241B7QGJEB debuts in January 2019 with an RRP of £209.
