Tag - Ambilight
Electronics producer Philips and TP Vision has entered the 4K-resolution market by revealing two new Ultra HD televisions at IFA, alongside an Ambilight-focused device. The 3840x2160-resolution 65-inch and 84-inch screens in the 9000 range of televisions are accompanied by a third display with a four-sided Ambilight configuration called Elevation.
Philips used the opening of the IFA technology show to upgrade its Cinema 21:9 line to 3D. The 3D Cinema 21:9 Platinum doubles the LCD panel refresh to 400Hz to support the added depth with stereoscopic glasses. It's slightly larger than the original at 58 inches and will be unique in providing 3D at the same aspect ratio as most theaters.
Philips today revealed that it will stop its direct development HDTVs for North America. The Dutch firm now says it will outsource all of the work for both these sets and Magnavox models to Japan-based Funai. The company will handle both manufacturing sets as well as marketing them in the two western countries. The move is cited as necessary to turn around Philips' loss-taking HDTV business, which is successful in Asia and Europe but has struggled in the more competitive North American space through tight profit margins.
Philips today introduced several new home and personal audio products, also a new line of LCD TVs. Pairing up with RealNetworks, the company’s new Streamium NP1100 relies on the 4.5 million track collection offered by Real’s Rhapsody network, as well as internet radio, and PC music libraries to bring audio to the home environment. The device uses a black and white display to show track information, and has a built-in WiFi receiver to connect with users’ home wireless networks. Philips expects to ship the NP1100 in May for $150.
