TP Vision, the company in charge for the marketing of Philips branded TV sets has announced its new Philips DesignLine TV characterized by an unconventional style to fit modern living spaces.
The front of the new TV is made of a square sheet of glass in gradient black. The new DesignLine TV series encompasses models of 117cm (46") and 140cm (55") in screen size and will be available in Europe and Russia in the second quarter of 2013.
The Philips DesignLine TVs feature no neck, stand or visible frame. One seamless sheet of glass is leaning against a wall. In standby mode, the TV?s frameless glass front displays a translucent flow from black opaque to transparent, which becomes invisible when watching TV.
Ambilight 3-sided XL adds to the floating appearance of the Philips DesignLine television. This Philips TV feature projects light that matches the colour of the on-screen content on to the wall behind it.
The front sheet of glass sits on top of a top-class LCD screen, which is powered by a dual-core processor with Perfect Pixel HD engine inside. The DesignLine features 1400 Hz Perfect Motion Rate for motion sharpness. Micro Dimming and Local Contrast improve the screen?s contrast. 3D Max uses active 3D technology in combination with the high-speed display to deliver 3D viewing in Full HD resolution.
To facilitate Smart TV usability the sets come with a remote control with pointing capability and built-in keyboard.
The TVs have also Wi-Fi on board and support the Philips MyRemote app, Wi-Fi Miracast and SimplyShare to allow wireless streaming content to and from notebooks, smartphones and tablets. The Philips Designline TVs are also ready to be automatically upgraded for MultiRoom viewing. This application allows users to stream broadcast content from the master TV to a secondary TV anywhere at home.
The DesignLine PDL-8908 goes on sale in the second quarter of 2013. Prices start from €2200
