Philips has officially unveiled a new 27-inch 3D monitor that belongs to the Gioco line and is called 278G4. The new monitor sports an AH-IPS display, Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), 3D imaging and W-LED backlight. The new monitor also has 178-degree viewing angles, 250 cd/m2 of brightness, 20 000 000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 7 ms of response time. Other specs include four USB 3.0 ports, three HDMI inputs and one VGA input.
Moreover the Philips Gioco 278G4 supports Ambiglow technology that projects various color lights thanks to ten integrated rear lamps – five to the left side and five to the right side. Thus the monitor projects an extension of the screen picture for a more complete immersion with the only requirement being the monitor to be at least 15 cm from a wall.
The Philips Gioco 278G4 3D monitor will sell for EUR 394. There’s also a version of the same monitor without 3D support but pricing was not announced. One thing’s for sure though – this one will cost less than the 3D version.
