February 25, 2014

Smart, connected and portable: The brand-new, Android-powered Philips Smart All-In-One monitors provide a dazzling display experience – complete with on-board computing power

Dubai, UAE: MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces a brand-new touch-controlled monitor powered by Android for exciting multimedia, gaming and quick Internet access. Available in 21.5-inch and 23-inch models, the Smart All-In-One displays, with their inbuilt computing power, are set to provide ease of use and a seamless display experience into living spaces at home, and public-accessed areas such as web cafÉs, schools and hotel lobbies.

Excellent display quality brings the world to life

The Smart All-In-One provides the traditionally excellent Philips display quality. Available in two models, the S221C4AFD with a 21.5-inch display and the S231C4AFD with a 23-inch display, the Smart All-In-One features brilliant 16:9 widescreen viewing with full HD

support for immersive entertainment experience. It produces sharp, flicker-free progressive scan pictures with superb brightness and colours, enabling users to stream HD movies in compelling viewing quality, complemented by superb stereo sound.

"There is growing demand for hybrid devices that make the user experience easier," says Thomas Schade, Vice President EMEA at MMD. "The Smart All-In-One gives users the best of both worlds: easy, integrated access to Android apps, and the brilliant display performance and much larger screen of the 21.5-inch or 23-inch Philips monitor."

The easiest way to interact with the web

The Smart All-In-One displays make the user experience easier and more entertaining – even for people who are otherwise not tech-savvy. There is no need to hook up a PC – the display has all the functionality built in. With direct access to the Google Play Store, users can enjoy one-touch access to an entire world of applications for gaming, news, social networking and more. At home, the entire family can enjoy playing their favourite Android games with the spacious screen and full-touch capabilities – and stay connected with friends through social networking apps. Outside the home, the Smart All-In-One is the ideal device for offering easy access to web information apps in schools, hospitals hotel lobbies and restaurants.

Thanks to touch technology, the Smart All-In-One supports intuitive touch gestures such as pinch, zoom, rotate, swipe and scroll, and large on-screen icons make for better readability – particularly important in public places where viewing might not be optimal. For extra convenience and high ergonomics, the Philips Smart All-In-One can be adjusted to near-horizontal position on the tabletop, or positioned upright for working or viewing at a desk.

All-in-one performance and connectivity

Although great as standalone devices, the Smart All-In-One displays are equipped out of the box with excellent connectivity, featuring USB 2.0 ports to hook up just about any device that supports USB – memory stick, camera, printer and of course smartphones. And, to make the Smart All-In-One part of a conventional desktop setup, users can attach a keyboard and mouse. Also on board: an integrated webcam, microphone, WiFi supporting 802.11 b/g/n standards, 2 GB of main memory, and a spacious 8 GB of internal storage which can be extended via SD card.
