Elevating education: Philips Monitors' vision for the classrooms of tomorrow

In the rapidly evolving educational landscape, Philips Monitors is leading the way with a range of innovative display solutions. From interactive classrooms and bustling auditoriums to resource-rich libraries, high-tech computer labs, welcoming reception areas, and even student dormitories, Philips Monitors is setting a new standard for digital learning and teaching with state-of-the-art technologies such as fast, responsive OLED panels, built-in webcams with face recognition and 10-point touchscreen displays.

Revolutionising classrooms and lecture halls
The Philips 34″ 34B1U5600CH with its curved VA panel and 27″ 27E1N5600HE with its colour accurate IPS panel are exemplary models for modern education. These monitors are equipped with high-resolution WQHD and QHD panels, respectively, providing sharp and vibrant visuals and wide viewing angles. They can be used for collaborative projects, where students can work together on presentations or research, benefiting from the large screen. 

E-learning is more effective with the Philips 27E1N5600HE, 
which brings out the best in multimedia educational content.

Equipped with built-in 5MP Windows Hello webcams and noise-cancelling microphones, they facilitate seamless, crystal-clear communication, making them ideal for virtual classrooms and remote learning. And in shared settings like computer labs, the facial recognition feature allows for quick and secure logins by multiple users, streamlining the transition between classes. Thanks to the USB-C docking capabilities, students can connect their laptops, share or extend the screen, charge or power their laptop (up to 65W for the 27″ and up to 100W for the 34″), and use peripherals connected to the monitor, all with a single USB-C cable.

Philips Monitors’ line-up also includes the 242B1TC, a 24″ touchscreen monitor with a durable, anti-glare screen and projected capacitive 10-point touch technology. This makes it perfect for interactive kiosks in libraries or as an engaging tool in early education settings. Its Z-shaped SmartStand with adjustable angles enhances its versatility, allowing it to be used comfortably in a variety of teaching scenarios, from upright touch interaction to a reclined position for drawing or annotating.

Philips Evnia: Bridging gaming and education
With its motto of “Reinvent the rules”, the 42″ Evnia 42M2N8900 and 34″ Evnia 34M2C7600MV monitors are revolutionising the concept of gamification in education. The Evnia 42M2N8900, with its vast screen size, 4K resolution, high refresh rate, and lightning-fast response time, is particularly well-suited for lecture halls. Thanks to its OLED panel, the 42M2N8900 can display fast-moving content with exceptional clarity, making it an ideal tool for dynamic presentations, videos, as well as interactive applications and games.

The Evnia 34M2C7600MV brings an immersive experience to the classroom with its curved ultra-wide VA panel and high refresh rate. It's perfect for subjects that benefit from a more engaging visual approach, where detailed maps, historical timelines, and scientific simulations can be displayed on its large 21:9 screen. Equipped with a mini-LED backlight featuring 1,152 dimming zones, the monitor is DisplayHDR 1400 certified, the highest HDR tier for LCD monitors, achieving impressive brightness levels and an immersive HDR experience in videos, games and more.

Philips at BETT 2024: A showcase of educational innovations
Philips Monitors' role in reshaping education technology was recently highlighted at Bett 2024, Europe's premier education technology exhibition in London. This January, Philips Monitors, in collaboration with Philips Professional Displays (PPDS), demonstrated how their innovative solutions support the transition from conventional to digital teaching methods and cater to a wide range of learning styles and needs. Educators and decision-makers caught a glimpse of the future of education technology with a hands-on experience on the above models.

Adaptable and sustainable solutions for education
Philips Monitors’ expertise lies not only in technological innovation, but also in sustainability. The energy efficiency and eco-friendly packaging of the B1U and E1N series monitors are in line with the increasing focus on environmental responsibility in educational institutions. For example, the LightSensor feature of the 34B1U5600CH enables the monitors to adjust the brightness based on the ambient light in a library or study area, enhancing students' comfort while saving energy, or the PowerSensor feature transmits and receives harmless infrared signals to determine if the user is present and then automatically reduces the monitor’s brightness when then user steps away.

Broadening horizons in libraries and dormitories 
In libraries, hi-res webcams and noise-cancelling microphones enable students to browse digital archives, engage in collaborative projects or participate in online webinars. The high-resolution screens ensure that text is crisp and easy to read, and further features such as LowBlue mode reduce eye strain during long study sessions.

In student residences, these monitors provide a multi-functional tool. They can be used for both academic purposes and leisure activities, such as gaming or streaming, making them an essential part of student life. The sleek design of the Evnia gaming monitors adds a touch of modernity to any student space.

Through innovative, sustainable, and adaptable display solutions, Philips Monitors improves the way educators teach and students learn, preparing them for an increasingly digital and connected world.
