Full HD LCD display, with a 1920x1080p resolution

The Full HD screen has the widescreen resolution of 1920 x 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 like 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 colors.

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 better match the surrounding pixels, resulting in a more natural picture. The result is a unique combination of sharpness, natural detail, vivid colors superior contrast and smooth natural motion whatever you are watching. Clean and razor sharp images result from artifact and noise detection and reduction in all content sources - from multimedia to standard TV.

100Hz Clear LCD for superb motion sharpness (3ms)

100Hz Clear LCD creates extreme motion sharpness for clear and vibrant images even with fast on-screen motion. The Double Frame Rate Insertion works with a high 100Hz refresh rate. It increases the sharpness of motion reproduction to more than twice that of conventional LCD, resulting in a response time of 3 milliseconds (measured in Perceived Blur-Edge-Width; BEW). This unique Philips technology brings motion sharpness of LCD displays to an unprecedented level.

HD Natural Motion for ultra smooth motion in Full HD movies

Philips invented HD Natural Motion to minimize juddering effects that are visible with movie based picture content. The award winning algorithm estimates motion in the picture and corrects juddering movements in both broadcast and recorded movie material (such as DVD and Blu-ray Disc). The resulting smooth motion reproduction and excellent sharpness take the viewing experience to a higher level.

Ambilight Spectra with Active Frame and sensorial halo

Ambilight Spectra with Active Frame and sensorial halo

The sensorial halo of Ambilight Spectra adds a magical dimension to the viewing experience. The Active Frame extends the light and atmosphere of the image far outside the screen in a soft kaleidoscope of colors. You feel fully immersed in the images, viewing becomes a more intensive experience than you could ever imagine. The compact LED technology enables a total of 126 power LEDs to be placed around the screen. This creates a multitude of segments that fuse into one soft surround of light in the Active Frame, directly enveloping the screen and flowing seamlessly into a soft halo on the wall.

Powerful sound from unique invisible speakers

Powerful sound from unique invisible speakers

An invisible sound system that blends perfectly with the design of the Aurea. Although invisible from the outside and extremely compact inside, there are no compromises to the performance of the sound. The new revolutionary micro speaker array uses 12 speakers per side to radiate the sound through an invisible thin slot at the front of the TV. They give a clear and spacious sound stage complementary to the rich viewing experience. The bass frequencies are generated by 2 powerful subwoofers integrated in the back of the TV.

4 trillion colors processing for vivid and brilliant images

Vibrant and natural images from most advanced color processing. The 3 color channels (RGB) are optimized using 14 bit resolution, a total processing power of 4 trillion colors. It produces vibrant colors while retaining excellent sharpness. The advanced algorithms detect subtle color shades and skin tones, and processes these to give most natural colors.

Drive your experience with Aurea Navigator remote control

The centrepiece is an element highlighted by spohisticated material and design, and a touch operated backlight. This Aurea key controls the amount of Aurea immersion. The ‘MODE’ button switches the dynamics in 3 levels from relaxed to dynamic. The ‘Ambilight’ button is there to switch the Ambilight ‘on’ or ‘off’, as simple as a lightswitch on the wall. The TV Menu offers access to addtional settings

Settings assistant for effortless personalized TV settings

Settings assistant for effortless personalized TV settings. The new settings assistant personalisation wizard guides you to personalised settings with unparalleled ease. It includes not only picture, but the complete viewing experience, including sound and Ambilight settings. The wizard shows a few screens with easy to choose options to select the essential settings.

3 HDMI inputs for full digital HD connection in one cable

HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection. With 3 HDMI inputs you can connect multiple HD sources, for instance an HD settop box, and a Blu-ray player. Your TV is fully prepared for the HD future.
