The new Philips BDM4037UW uses a high-performance VA panel that has "optimized pixel management technology", allowing it to provide 178-degree viewing angles. Philips does talk about 'Ultra Wide Color' and hitting 85% of the NTSC color gamut, which is higher than the normal 72% coverage on most displays.

One of the more interesting features is something seen on a few other 4K displays: MultiView, which allows for four different inputs (1080p each). These can be arranged in two different styles: first, Picture-by-Picture mode which is great for control rooms or for some side-by-side web browser goodness. Secondly, Picture-in-Picture mode which lets you watch something, while doing something on the other side.

Display connectivity includes: 2 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI 1.4, 1 x HDMI 2.0, 4 x USB 3.0, VGA, headphone out, and PC audio-in. There's also 2 x 5W speakers built-in, and an intregrated stand that offers tilt adjustment at up to 5/10 degrees.
