Philips launches new global gaming peripherals brand Evnia Featured

By

When it comes to major gaming brands you might not think of Philips, but the global electronics business has now launched an inclusive, curated range of gaming peripherals with tiers to meet your budget.

In fact, Philips and its subsidiaries and partners are the driving force behind most monitors in the world and now the business has launched its own range of truly impressive high-end monitors with high resolution, fast refresh rates, ultra-low input lag, a range of inputs, and other quality features.

More than this, it also has released headsets, keyboards, and mice that are in complementary colours and come in associated tiers so you can select an appropriate monitor, mouse, keyboard, and headset all at comparable levels of budget and performance.

Evnia, the brand name, is a Greek word (Εύνοια) which consists of “eu” - or good, and “nous” - or mind. Thus, the Evnia range is designed to represent “well mind” and “smart thinking.” In regular use, the word evnia shows interest to support and protect someone or something and is often used in the context of luck.

Now, the gaming hardware itself is one thing, and we’ll come to the specs, but it also needs to be made clear Philips is strongly targeting the Evnia range to gamers of all ages, genders, nationalities, and other demographics.

We see an example of this here, in this introductory clip, featuring Kenyan pro-gamer Sylvia Gathoni, or otherwise known as Queen Arrow.

Not only is Gathoni the face of Philips gaming, but Philips’ own research finds that nearly half of all gamers worldwide are female, and also increasingly gamers tend to be adults. Thus, Evnia has embraced diversity and inclusion throughout its product range, as part of its tagline that Evnia is “breaking all the rules.”

Gathoni speaks about what the Evnia product range means to her:

Right now, the Evnia range will commence with monitors available to order in December and shipping in January, while the complete range - keyboards, mice, and headsets - will be available from June 2023.

As such, initial specs are yet to be finalised, but iTWire learned from Philips Europe product manager César Acosta these things:

  1. the keyboards are mechanical keyboards, and the higher tiers will include Cherry MX keys that can be easily removed and swapped
  2. the headsets include multipoint Bluetooth, with surround sound. Noise-cancelling and spatial sound may come in the future.
  3. the monitors are festooned with ports, allowing you to connect it to multiple gaming devices - for example, a PC and a console - and can also be used as a hub or effectively a docking station.

The complete collection will be tiered according to “good”, “better,” and “best” - with a complementary set of peripherals to match price and performance, suiting your budget. These will be numbered as the 3000, 5000, and 7000/8000 series accordingly.

This is quite a distinctive element; while other gaming brands - such as HyperX and Corsair - have a wide range of gaming peripherals they are not curated in this same way. And while Asus has its Tuf Gaming alliance, the alliance ensures the products will look good together. Thus, Evnia's product range is both useful and novel.

Acosta speaks about the tech specs here including the product tiers:

Philips Evnia monitors come with a stylish design that will match any interior décor, while its generous displays invite gamers to get into the game. The first Evnia model to be released, the curved Philips Evnia 34M2C7600MV monitor, ensures an almost cinematic experience with UltraWide Quad HD 3440 x 1440 resolution and HDR 1400. The monitor’s mini-LED backlighting with 1,152 zones allows enhanced control of the lighting and contrast ratio for deeper blacks and brighter whites.

Ambiglow adds to an all-around immersion in the game. The visual performance is matched by its gaming features - with a 165Hz refresh rate, ultra-low input lag, and Adaptive-Sync, even the most action-packed games are sure to be smooth and fluid.

Philips makes comfort a priority, and the Philips Evnia 34M2C7600MV offers great flexibility with complete connectivity of USB-C ports as well as KVM and height-adjustable stand to adapt to users’ preferences and ensure gaming sessions that are a pleasure for the mind and the body.

The Evnia monitors range will see further performance-driven products with models 42M2N8900 (42” OLED flat screen), 34M2C8600 (34” QD OLED curved screen) and 27M2C5500W (27” VA curved screen).

The offer will be completed with innovative and stylish accessories: Two keyboards (SPK8508 and SPK8708), two mice (SPK9508 and SPK9708), two headsets (TAG5208 and TAG7208), and one mouse pad (SPL7508).

The Evnia monitors will be available globally for purchase from December, and available from mid-January. The accessories will all be available from June 2023 onwards.

ENABLE HYBRID CLOUD & REDUCE NETWORK LATENCY WHITEPAPER

Hybrid cloud promises to bring together the best of both worlds enabling businesses to combine the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the cloud with the performance and control that you can get from your on-premise infrastructure.

Reducing WAN latency is one of the biggest issues with hybrid cloud performance. Taking advantage of compression and data deduplication can reduce your network latency.

Research firm, Markets and Markets, predicted that the hybrid cloud market size is expected to grow from US$38.27 billion in 2017 to US$97.64 billion by 2023.

Colocation facilities provide many of the benefits of having your servers in the cloud while still maintaining physical control of your systems.

Cloud adjacency provided by colocation facilities can enable you to leverage their low latency high bandwidth connections to the cloud as well as providing a solid connection back to your on-premises corporate network.


Download this white paper to find out what you need to know about enabling the hybrid cloud in your organisation.
