Philips 2011 Range of TVs

Bring the cinematic viewing experience home and let it take center-stage with the 2011 range of new Philips Smart LED TVs

SINGAPORE - Philips is making the ultimate cinema experience available to a broader audience by expanding its range with the Cinema 21:9 Gold series Smart LED TV. Following the debut of the Cinema 21:9 Platinum series last year, the world’s first cinema proportion 3D TV, the new Cinema 21:9 Gold series TV will make every night a movie premiere at home. Building on their award-winning predecessors with precision engineering and cutting-edge audio-visual technology, the Philips 9000, 8000 and 7000 series Smart LED TVs will now offer deeper contrast and sharper details, while tracking action-packed scenes with smooth fluidity.

Presenting movies just as the director originally intended, Philips’ new Cinema 21:9 50PFL7656H/12 Gold series TV, is a dream come true for all movie buffs. The Philips Cinema 21:9 TV has the ideal wide screen for film fanatics to enjoy a world of film and connectivity. It uses Philips-pioneered formatting technology to display movies in their authentic format, completely filling the screen. Unlike other TVs in the market, the Philips Cinema 21:9 TV is an ideal companion for movie lovers as movies are presented in the authentic 21:9 movie format – so this means no more annoying black bars on your ultra widescreen TV.

The Philips Cinema 21:9 TV is equally accomplished with 16:9 formats, including broadcast television, gaming and DVDs, giving you the option to resize the picture to fill the screen. With Ambilight Spectra 2 on this Philips 50PFL7656H/12 Gold series TV, it is better equipped to provide an amplified and literally larger than life viewing experience to maximize your cinematic experience.

With the multi-view function, you can even split the screen and watch football on the left, while surfing the Internet on the right. To add to that, a special feature of the Cinema 21:9 Gold series TV allows each player to simultaneously see his or her view expand to fill the entire TV screen when dual gaming with Easy 3D is activated on your TV, using the Philips 3D Gaming Kit. This is truly the next level in the home gaming experience – significantly different from the 2D mode for dual gaming, where the screen splits for player one to get the top half, and player two, the bottom half.

Easy 3D also ensures that you get long hours of comfort while watching 3D – thanks to its flicker-free, low ghosting performance. The compatible 3D glasses are light weight and do not require batteries. With Pixel Precise HD, the Philips 50PFL7656H/12 Gold series TV stands out with its intricate picture quality and fluent movement during even the fastest action scene. With four trillion colors, the picture quality is taken to a new level.

Achieve maximum performance with the Philips 9000, 8000 and 7000 series Smart LED TVs

This year, the Philips 46PFL9706H/12 TV scored a prestigious achievement at the EISA Awards, landing the “3D TV of the Year 2011-12” award thanks to its 3D Max technology and unique ‘Moth Eye’ filter. 3D Max is a newly developed technology which lets you convert your 2D pictures into 3D and control the amount of depth you want added to the picture, with Full HD resolution and 180-degree viewing to provide beautifully clear images. The latter is a perfect anti-reflective surface on the TV which brings images to life by deepening the blackness of the dark tones, whilst simultaneously increasing the bright elements. Like a moth eye, the anti-reflective surface helps to extend image contrast, to provide true-to-life pictures in incredible, brilliant detail.

The 3D Max technology can also be found in the Philips 52PFL9606H/12 TV. Across these 9000 series TVs, Ambilight XL expands the screen with matching colors in three directions, drawing you even further into the action. These Philips TVs also have the fastest response times in the market for extreme motion sharpness, so that you can enjoy clear and vibrant images when watching action films. In addition, they are equipped with Full HD LED Pro – with over 1,000 LEDs operating selectively in the display backlight to give brilliant light in bright image areas, and dim completely in dark areas for the deepest black – using up to 50% less energy. The 9000 series also includes the powerful Perfect Pixel HD Engine which enhances each pixel to achieve stunning pictures, and a 40W SoundStage for dynamic powerful sound in an ultra slim package.

The Philips 8000 and 7000 series TVs are also part of this new range of performance TVs, with their breathtaking perfect pictures and action captured in stunning detail. The Philips 40PFL8606H/12 TV comes with 3D Max for a truly immersive Full HD 3D experience and a 800Hz Perfect Motion Rate for superb motion sharpness, and the Philips 47PFL7606H/12 and 42PFL7406H/12 TVs provide Brilliant LED images with low power consumption.

Enjoy immersive entertainment with the Philips 6000 and 5000 series Smart LED TVs

Designed to allow consumers to relax and enjoy a great TV night, the Philips 6000 and 5000 series Smart LED TVs come with Pixel Plus HD for superior details and clear, vivid pictures, as well as 3 HDMI inputs and Easylink for seamless connectivity. The USB connector on these TVs also allows you to plug in your multimedia device, to easily share videos, photos and music.

For the 5000 series, 20W RMS and Incredible Surround is offered – the powerful amplifiers create a lifelike sound and the Incredible Surround gives greater depth and width of sound to create a clear and spacious sound stage complementary to the rich viewing experience.

Get smart and stay connected with the Philips 2011 range of TVs

With one of the most comprehensive Smart TV packages available, the Philips 2011 range of TVs are connected media portals that are able to link up with online content, stream music, photos and videos from your tablet, smartphone or laptop.
