For many, working from home hasn’t been all its cracked up to be. You’ve lost that sweet, dual display monitor set up, people can hear your children/dog/cat/partner/mother/amazon delivery in the background of your calls, connecting anything is clunky without the gadget draw in the office, the connection is terrible and as for video calling… you’d rather stick to the phone.
IT directors are being inundated with calls, daily, to try and improve the homeworking conditions for colleagues unable to enter the office. At Voicepath, we have been working closely with our clients to come up with some smart improvements that have made a big change; In this short series, we talk about the performance of this technology.
There are a few single monitors on the market that offer up that dual monitor/multiple input functionality that is desirable and yet scalable for homeworking. We review some options on the market that enable efficient working with a smaller cost and footprint.
All monitors are available to demonstrate on enquiry.
- IIYAMA ProLite IPS 34” Ultra-wide monitor with height adjustable stand – XUB3493WQSU-B1
Ultrawide monitors are incredibly useful for providing a physical extension to your desktop, allowing for multiple pages to be displayed at once, without requiring a powered adaptor to route a dual or multi display set-up. The 34” iiyama Pro-Lite XUB3493WQSU-B1 has many other useful features in-built, including ‘Picture in Picture’ technology allowing two sources to feed through to the screen at the same time. Native ‘Flicker Free LED’ and ‘Blue Light Reducer’ lessens eye strain/fatigue and the screen mount included adjusts to suite the viewer in multiple configurations.
- IIYAMA 34” G-Master Red Eagle GB3466WQSU-B1
Ok, we submit, this is an Ultra-wide gaming monitor but for those needing to focus on moving imagery, design applications or creative suites, this monitor works hard to make focus less of an endurance race! Alongside the ‘Flicker Free LED’ and ‘Blue Light Reducer’ as previously mentioned, this monitor is constructed to replicate eye curvature, achieving a far more natural viewing experience. The monitor excels in its support of HDR content, producing exceptional colour and picture quality. The low input latency and low framerate compensation, designed for the gaming experience, ensures moving graphic replication is seamless.
- LG 43” 4K UHD IPS USB-C HDR 10 Monitor LG43UN700
This single 43” monitor is a game changer, yes, its very large and looks more like a television than a monitor but for those requiring up to four displays at 4k, here it is in a single neat display. This native 3840×2160 display boasts HDR 10 and up to 4 qty PBP/PIP source fed displays with full, on-screen, control of the display architecture. This useful display seems to be a one stop shop with USB-C compatibility, in-built speaker and bass speaker system, 60Hz refresh rate and up to 60w USB-C charging… yes, you can charge your mobile, from your display!
