Dolby Atmos and DTS:X are two competing sound formats designed to create 3D sound. It is so to speak an extension of surround sound to a completely enveloping sound atmosphere with clearly assignable sounds – especially from above! Of course, you need a suitable sound system or soundbar for this.
Since 2009, HDMI ARC has been an extension of the High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), which makes it possible to connect audio devices to the TV via HDMI and to transmit audio signals to them digitally. With HDMI ARC, the bandwidth of sound signals was limited to 1 Mbps, which was still sufficient for most surround signals. Uncompressed signals or high-resolution audio was not possible with this bandwidth. For this purpose, an extension was brought into play with HDMI eARC, which brings a sufficiently large bandwidth of up to 38 Mbps with it. With this, even uncompressed Dolby Atmos sound with 32 audio channels is possible!
A soundbar is a miniaturized version of a complete sound system, so to speak, which can be placed directly in front of the TV in the most space-saving way possible, but still delivers a great sound experience.
The trend in recent years is moving away from large sound systems, with huge speakers everywhere in the living room, to the most compact sound bars possible.
These can also produce an immersive sound that can captivate most with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X. Only the bass falls somewhat by the wayside due to the small enclosure. However, that is not a problem since most soundbars come with an external subwoofer, so they can also shine in this area.
Philips patented dynamic LED lighting behind the TV brings a very special atmosphere to your living room. The LED lighting adapts in color to the picture shown on the TV, enhancing the viewing experience. This is not only easy on the eyes, but also looks good. Meanwhile, Ambilight can also be retrofitted, so that not only owners of Philips TVs can enjoy Ambilight.
With a wall mount, your TV can be elegantly mounted on the wall, especially space-saving. They come in a variety of designs, so there should be something for everyone.
When choosing a wall mount, in addition to the respective direction of movement, the maximum permissible weight and the VESA standard of the TV should be considered, which indicates how far apart the four threaded holes on the back of the TV are. These threads are specifically designed for the use of wall mounts and almost every common TV has them.
