Brilliant Displays to Help You Get the Most Out of Your MHL Experience

Steve Young, Marketing Manager for Philips Monitors


Philips is a well-known brand in the monitor business that’s established a track record for offering displays with truly innovative form factors and features catering to users of all types. One way for us to differentiate our products is to incorporate technologies such as MHL, a connectivity standard that enables consumers to connect their smartphones and tablets, into these displays.  Once the mobile device is connected, all of its content is mirrored onto the larger screen offering a variety of possibilities. Today, we’ll be looking at three Philips monitors.

First up, the Philips 19DP6QJNS  two-in-one LCD is a strong choice for business users looking to squeeze more productivity from their mobile device. Thanks to their strong processing power and support for MHL, many of today’s smartphones are capable of running popular Office productivity software. But what smartphones don’t have are full-size displays. Enter the Philips 19DP6QJNS. It’s essentially two side-by-side 19-inch monitors that take up roughly the same desktop space as a single 34-inch monitor. The dual displays are great for business professionals that need to keep multiple windows open to monitor different applications in real time, like a stock ticker and email. The form factor has struck a chord with users, and Philips has won several awards for this display.

Mobile gaming is now a killer app for smartphones and they make a great way to pass the time on a long commute or in between classes. But for those times when you want to experience your latest smartphone first-person shooter or strategy game on a big screen there’s the Philips 242G5DJEB. It’s a 24-inch gaming monitor with incredibly fast 144 Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time. That kind of performance means that even the most graphically intense mobile games will run smoothly and look fantastic.

If mobile gaming isn’t your thing, perhaps you can enjoy streaming premium video to your smartphone from popular services like Netflix or Amazon Instant Video. For consumers in this camp, Philips offers the BDM4065UC, a 40-inch 4K monitor. It’s a great solution for cord cutters or other consumers who use their smartphones as the primary source of their video content, like college students. It has a large 40-inch screen that delivers beautiful 4K video (both Netflix and Amazon are now streaming 4K content), making it a perfect fit for a dorm room or apartment.
