Philips 45B1U6900CH/C 45″ Monitors Arrived With Pop-Up Camera
Today, Philips has released two new desktop monitors for office use, with a superwide 32:9 format that closely resembles the 40-inch ultrawide monitors introduced last month. The models, named 45B1U6900CH and 45B1U6900C, share identical panels, designs, bases, and ergonomic features. These monitors come equipped with a 44.5-inch VA display featuring a 1500R curvature and a super-ultra-wide resolution of 5,120 x 1,440 pixels. Furthermore, both Philips 45B1U6900CH/C has a maximum brightness of 450 nits and are certified with VESA DisplayHDR 400.
According to Philips, the display is ideal for creative tasks and boasts a static contrast ratio of 3,000:1. The models have the ability to cover 123% of the sRGB color space and 107% of the DCI-P3 color space. Additionally, the panel features a response time of 4ms (grey to grey), a maximum refresh rate of 75 Hz, and support for Adaptive Sync. The display is also adjustable with the stand, offering up to 150mm in height, a swivel range of +/-45 degrees, and a tilt range of -5/+15 degrees. An innovative feature is the extendable telescopic hook on the left side, which is ideal for hanging headsets and headphones.
Now, let’s shift our focus from the similarities to the differences between the two monitors. The Philips 45B1U6900CH features a pop-up camera at the top of the display, equipped with a 5-megapixel resolution and a noise-canceling microphone. It is also Windows Hello certified.
On the other hand, the Philips 45B1U6900C does not possess this feature. Furthermore, there are distinctions concerning connectivity. While both models have two HDMI 2.0 inputs, a DisplayPort 1.4 input with HBR3, a USB Type-C port with DP Alt mode and 100W power delivery, and a 1Gbps LAN port with Wake on Lan, there may be differences in their implementation.
The Philips 45B1U6900CH/C models come with a range of features. The model features four USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A ports, an audio line-out/microphone-in combo jack, two 5W speakers, PowerSensor, and LightSensor. Meanwhile, the second variant offers four USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A ports, a USB Type-B upstream port, a standard 3.5mm audio output, as well as two 5W speakers, PowerSensor, and LightSensor. Additionally, both monitors have been certified by TÜV Rheinland’s Eyesafe program, ensuring they are suitable for extended work sessions.
