Privacy is increasingly a value that users consider and seek to protect. The Snowden case served to alert us to the fact that even in our own home were protected against unwanted surveillance by third parties.
Manufacturers have seen how security is a sought value and in this sense launch products that boast one or another quality that makes them noteworthy in this spectrum, such as the last monitor that the firm Philips launches. With a striking feature: it has an emerging webcam is hidden if not needed.
And many computer monitors or TVs feature a built -in webcam to facilitate making video calls and conferences. A camera that normally warns if active, or so often and so we think.
To avoid prying eyes until now we had homemade solutions to plug the webcam with tape, paper or even some companies have launched quite curious accessories. However, with the Philips monitor 272B7QPTKEB it one step further.
Whenever we are not using the web camera is going to hide and integrated within the frame of the screen so that it is impossible for us to see. By the time, we started using an application that requires the use of the webcam and request use this emerges automatically.
In addition, the Philips monitor looks 272B7QPTKEB among its features one IPS panel 27 inches in size with QHD resolution to 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and a viewing angle of 178/178 degrees also incorporating the PowerSensor system that allows savings of up to 80% energy costs in determining whether the user is present so that automatically reduces monitor brightness when it is absent.
If we talk about connectivity features 3 USB 3.0 inputs, support Displayport, HDMI 1.4 input , Daisy Chaining to connect devices and SmartErgoBase, which allows ergonomic adjustments so that we can adjust the monitor to any position according to our needs.
We are talking about a high mid – range monitor, something that will be reflected in the price, because if you want to get one you will have to pay about 700 dollars it costs.
