Welcome to a new age of gaming monitors. MMD, a leading display technology company and brand licensing partner of Philips Monitors, is proud to introduce the Philips G-line 144Hz Gaming Display – a monitor display that gives gamers everywhere the edge to surpass the competition. The Philips G-line 144Hz Gaming Display is designed for dominance in three main areas: smooth visual function, comprehensive customization options and extensive connectivity.

When it comes to graphics and performance specifications, the computer gaming market is without doubt one of the most demanding. Small variations in specifications can lead to differences in performance that are enough to draw the line between victory and defeat when playing at a high level. The Philips 144Hz Gaming Display provides a range of enhancements and features designed to give gamers a more immersive experience and provide a convincing advantage over the opposition.


State-of-the-Art Technology

As its name suggests, one of the monitor’s main features is its 144Hz screen refresh rate, ensuring ultra-smooth visuals that capture every little detail by redrawing the screen up to 144 times per second, effectively 2.4 times faster than standard displays. Pre-set FPS, RTS and Racing settings then allow users to customize their experience in ways that are specifically suited to different types of game. Smart Frame boosts the gain level of RGB in a selected area where users may expect enemies to appear in-game, and is most suitable for both FPS and RTS games. For those who wish to practise their gaming skills on different size screens, the Smart Size function adjusts the display size and aspect ratio to simulate 10 common monitor sizes down to 17”, ensuring perfect preparation for competition venues.

Different game scenarios may require different display configurations for optimal performance. The specially designed Remote Smart Keypad is a separate remote controller that enables users to instantly switch between two personalized gaming pre-sets and navigate the full on-screen settings menu.

Immersive gaming experience at your fingertips

Watching digital content or playing games on a smartphone is seldom as immersive as a full computer or TV experience, confined by limited battery life and the significantly smaller screen. Mobile High-Definition Link (MHL) solves this problem by conveniently allowing users to connect compatible smartphones or other mobile electronic devices to the monitor for a more rewarding experience. The MHL connection also charges the device during use, enabling unlimited entertainment without requiring a separate charger.

A range of connectivity options are provided thanks to Philips Smart Connect, includingDual Link DVI, DisplayPort and universal HDMI, enabling enjoyment of all digital sources, with high-resolution uncompressed video and audio content.

The Philips 144Hz Gaming Display also provides a convenient 4-port USB 3.0 hub, supporting faster data transfers and superior smartphone charging. USB 3.0 features a range of impressive advantages over USB 2.0, with synchronous data transmission and a full duplex interface for significantly improved speed, and nearly double the power supply. With a data rate of 5Gbps, USB 3.0 is able to perform 10 times faster than USB 2.0.

Brilliant Performance and Design

SmartImageGAME settings fine-tune response time, contrast, colour saturation and more, to optimize the display for different game genres. Smart Response ensures image quality is always at its best with 1ms refresh for smoother and faster gaming.

As is the norm with Philips monitors, design is simple and unobtrusive, with subtle stylish elements that suit it to any home decor. The monitor features a red metallic trim strip and gunmetal matte black base plate. The Smart Keypad design, inspired by the curvature of the stand, presents an edgy look and feel.


The Philips G-line 144Hz Gaming Display 242G5DJEB comes in 24” screen size and will be available in the Asia Pacific region
