Along with the Philips G-line 144Hz Gaming Display, Philips rolled out its next line of high quality monitors – the C-line Windows 8 Touch Monitor. The new displays are made to suit the touch-centric nature of Windows 8, and features P-Cap (Projected Capacitative) Touch supporting 10-point multitouch technology.
The C-line display boasts a 23-inch IPS panel with LED backlights and a 20,000,000:1 SmartContrast ratio for consistent colour and standout image quality.
The touch monitor comes with HDMI input, Display Port and MHL connectivity options. MHL allows users to connect to a smartphone or tablet, and also charges the device when connected.
It is conveniently integrated with 2x USB 3.0 ports and a HD webcam with mic. Additionally, a pair of 2W speakers come built-in.
