Philips reduced the energy consumption to become amongst the lowest in the market.
To enable the monitor to be easily disassembled at the end of its life and meet the requirements of the RoHS directive, Philips have ensured that the monitor contains no hazardous materials.
They have also reduced the amount of materials used within the product leading to a significant reduction in total weight which saves on transport costs.
To aid disassembly, Philips have used fewer wires and components which makes the unit easier, cheaper and quicker to recycle.
