Ambilight Spectra 3 for an immersive viewing experience
Add a new dimension to your viewing experience with Ambilight Spectra 3. This patented Philips technology enlarges the screen further by projecting a glow of light from the back of the screen onto the surrounding wall. Ambilight automatically adjusts the colour and brightness of the light surrounding the TV to match the picture, creating an immersive viewing experience. With Ambilight Spectra 3 movies truly come to life!

Perfect Pixel HD Engine for unrivalled sharpness and clarity
Experience unrivalled sharpness and clarity with Perfect Pixel HD Engine. Each pixel of the picture is enhanced to match the surrounding pixels better, resulting in a more natural picture. The result is a unique combination of sharpness, natural detail, vivid colours, superior contrast and smooth natural motion whatever you are watching. Clean and razor sharp images result from artefact and noise detection and reduction in all content sources — from multimedia to standard TV.

Full HD LCD display, with a 1920 × 1080p resolution
The Full HD screen has the widescreen resolution of 1920 × 1080p. This is the highest resolution of HD sources for the best possible picture quality. It is fully future-proof as it supports 1080p signals from all sources, including the most recent sources such as Blu-ray and advanced HD game consoles. 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 colours.

LED Pro for extreme contrast and brilliance
Enjoy breathtaking pictures and use up to 50% less energy with Philips award-winning LED Pro! Over 1000 LEDs are operated selectively in a grid as a backlight for the display. They generate brilliant light in bright image areas, and are dimmed completely in dark areas, saving energy. Combined with the powerful Perfect Pixel HD Engine, the result is a stunning picture with extreme contrast, sharpness and vibrant colour. With LED Pro black is black and white is bright.

Perfect Natural Motion for ultra-smooth Full HD movies
Enjoy the action without any judder. Perfect Natural Motion estimates motion in the picture and corrects juddering movements in both broadcast and pre-recorded movie material (including 1080p movies and 24p True Cinema on Blu-ray and DVD). The result is even smoother and quieter pictures with excellent sharpness, regardless of how quick the action gets on-screen. Enjoy motion performance that surpasses cinema quality!

200 Hz Clear LCD, 1 ms performance: superb motion sharpness
Enjoy extreme motion sharpness without picture imperfections. The Philips 200 Hz Clear LCD brings the response time of LCD TV to an incredible 1 ms, so even with the fastest action scene you will be enthralled by the action, and not following the stretched car across the screen. Go ahead, enjoy the action!

Wide Colour Gamut LCD display for brilliant colours
x.v.Colour ensures realistic colour reproduction, accurately capturing every tint, hue and depth in order to offer a wide colour range that includes almost twice as many colours as sRGB colour space. x.v.Colour produces colour variations very close to what the human eye can recognise – it even enhances/improves the quality of High Definition video material. Televisions compliant with x.v.Colour will reproduce images in almost the same quality as when it was recorded.

Dynamic contrast 5,000,000:1 for ultimate brilliant images
You want the LCD flat display with the highest contrast and most vibrant images. The LED backlight offers this by a unique local dimming of the LEDs. It generates light where it is needed in the image and keeps dark areas supremely black. The excellent dimming enabled by LEDs allows an unsurpassed dynamic contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1. For the first time images are rendered with extreme deep blacks alongside vibrantly coloured amazing bright sections.
