The signal processing is extensively upgraded to support this much higher signal quality and resolution. It produces brilliant flicker-free progressive scan pictures with superb brightness and colors.

Digital Crystal Clear for detail depth and clarity

Digital Crystal Clear is a package of picture innovations that digitally adjusts and optimizes picture quality to optimal contrast, color and sharpness levels. It's like watching vivid cinema-like images.

Incredible Surround for enhanced audio enjoyment

Incredible Surround for enhanced audio enjoyment

Incredible Surround is an audio technology from Philips that dramatically magnifies the sound field to immerse you in the audio. Using state-of-the-art electronic phase shifting, Incredible Surround mixes sounds from left and right in such a way that it expands the virtual distance between the two speakers. This wider spread greatly enhances the stereo effect and creates a more natural sound dimension. Incredible Surround allows you to experience total surround with greater depth and width of sound, without the use of additional speakers.

Dynamic contrast 30000:1 for incredible rich black details

You want the LCD flat display with the highest contrast and most vibrant images. Philips advanced video processing combined with unique extreme dimming and backlight boosting technology results in vibrant images. Dynamic Contrast will increase the contrast with excellent blacklevel and accurate rendition of dark shades and colors. It gives a bright, lifelike picture with high contrast and vibrant colors.

2 HDMI inputs with Easylink for a full HD connection

EasyLink uses the HDMI CEC industry standard protocol to share functionality between connected devices and the TV. With Easylink only one remote control is needed to operate main functionalities on your TV and connected devices. HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen for the ultimate picture quality. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection. With 1 HDMI input on the back and 1 HDMI on the side of the TV you can connect multiple HD sources, for instance an HD settop box, a Blu-ray player, and Game Console or Digital Camcorder.

PC-input allows you to use your TV as a PC monitor

With PC input you can use your TV as a PC monitor either using a HDMI-DVI cable/converter (for digital signals) or VGA cable (for analog signals).

Smart Picture and Smart Sound to personalize your viewing

Philips preset modes for Smart Picture and Smart Sound provide you with direct access via a single key on the remote control. You can select optimized picture and sound settings for the various picture and sound modes.

Active Control optimizes picture quality whatever the source

Active Control ensure that noise and sharpness improvements are continuously made at a rate of 60 times per second. By continually adjusting picture setting over 3,000 times per minute, Active Control Plus ensures that the viewing experience is optimized.

Native cinema mode for real movie experience

Movies and many prime time TV programs are captured at 24 frames per second (24p). Without changing the frames processing of the film, the TV displays movie content exactly at 24 frames per second, hencing recreating the exact same motion effect film producers have intended.

Dynamic Bass Enhancement for cinematic sound

By using digital sound processing, DBE dynamically enhances the bass notes according to your personal wishes. Plus, since it is volume sensitive, the sound is always free from low-end distortion.
