Philips TVs
2019, 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023 lineup compared

To this day, Philips is still an active player in the consumer electronics industry. In order to do so, the Dutch company obtained help from the Chinese company TPV Technology. A trademark and still a unique selling point of the product range are TV devices with the so-called Ambilight system. The rear LED illumination is used in various forms throughout the entire line-up. In addition to backlit models, advanced OLED TVs, which are partly equipped with exclusive audio solutions, are also available in the portfolio.

More about TV manufacturer Philips

Founded as a purely Dutch business, the production of the TV division ended up completely in the hands of the Japanese company TP Vision in 2014. Since then, the respective sets have been sold on the basis of brand licensing. Today, there is a wide range of LED models with different lighting technologies and an OLED segment that has spread into all price regions. Part of this is still the well-known Ambilight feature. A special and nowadays still unique feature on the market that is now implemented on various levels in the brand’s portfolio and has become a major selling point thanks to its high popularity.

In addition, a partnership with the UK-based brand Bowers & Wilkins was established back in 2018. Therefore, especially in the mid-range and high-price segment, you will see several devices that are equipped with speakers from this premium audio manufacturer. With product labels such as “The One” as the one TV for all or “The Xtra“, devices are advertised with special features such as Mini-LEDs, improved image processing and extensive gaming capabilities.

Philips TV technologies explained

This term is probably the biggest trademark in the Philips TV segment. The so-called Ambilight is a manufacturer-specific function that you will only see in devices from the Dutch-Chinese company. It uses LEDs on the back of the housing to illuminate the area behind the television according to the content displayed. The result of this approach is the impression of a larger screen area. Various configurations in different versions are available on the market.

By introducing the Ambilight Aurora function, Philips is enhancing the colour illumination on the back of the TV with a so-called Ambience mode. You can use theme packages that are already installed on the TV, to provide images in combination with suitable background music, to relax in a rainforest atmosphere, for example, or to continue with your current novel.

If you need some colourful background music for your current playlist, Ambilight Music gives you exactly that. As soon as you activate the feature, its LEDs jump on to match the beat of the song you’re listening to. In combination with additional Hue lights, you can even intensify the effect and let the room be completely captured by a colourful background.

The term Ambilight Next Generation refers to an advanced version of the ambient illumination. Here, the control no longer takes place in groups as before, but instead for each LED. This allows the colour effect on the back to be resolved more precisely. The outcome is an even finer transition along the displayed image content.

Philips TVs that have the AmbiWakeup feature provide a special alarm mode to wake you up as gently as possible. To do this, you need to programme the TV beforehand based on various settings for wake-up time, colour theme, music preference and volume. Using a sunrise effect – similar to a daylight alarm clock – the screen becomes steadily brighter and thus ensures an altogether more relaxed awakening.

AmbiSleep works in exactly the opposite way to AmbiWakeup. Here, Philips aims to help you fall asleep. The TV uses warm colours combined with natural sounds to help you relax. On this basis, you should be able to sleep more easily. As with the wake-up feature, you can set your preferred settings in the menu.

Philips has been working with the British audio company Bowers & Wilkins since 2018. Today, you can find several TV models with sound systems made by the sound experts from the island. Those products range from small audio bars that are directly integrated into the design up to external sound bars that can also serve as a stand.

The DTS Play-Fi functionality provides you with two different options. In combination with compatible speakers, you can create a multiroom setup and move the playback of the TV to another location in your home. Alternatively, Philips offers you the option to implementΒ a home theater setup that uses surround sound and utilise the TV as a center speaker within this configuration.

This is Philips’ so-called Black Frame Insertion feature, which allows black images to be inserted into the screen. During playback, the screen switches on and off at high speed. What may seem strange at first is a functionality to reduce blurring during fast motion sequences.

The Local Contrast setting is used to improve the degree of contrasts. An algorithm is used to analyse the displayed material. While details in darker areas are brightened without negatively affecting the black level, a filter ensures that edges remain sharp.

This marketing name refers to the type of background illumination used and therefore has no role to play with OLEDs. In general, Philips differs between two variants here. If you read “Premium“, the TV has so-called local dimming. If the term “Pro” is attached to it, the simpler and lower-quality edge-lit variant operates in the housing.

A valuable feature for people with hearing impairments is Philips’ audio optimisation system, called Mimi Sound. It allows users to create a personalised tone profile based on an app to compensate for limitations in listening perception. This provides a better subjective quality by highlighting low noises, for example, or by making individual details more audible within a louder soundscape.

For TVs labelled or advertised as “OLED+”, the Dutch-Chinese manufacturer uses a so-called OLED.EX panel. Technically, this is the first development stage of standard WOLED screens with self-luminous pixels and thus the second generation of this panel type.

A horrible marketing term, but actually a collective term for various features of a Philips TVs that are related to signal processing. In detail, this includes, for example, the automatic recognition of the displayed content in combination with HDR formats and tone mapping, other picture optimisation processes or maintenance options to avoid burn-in on the panel.

Philips uses this term to describe the so-called interpolation feature, also known as interframe calculation. An optimisation process that ensures a smoother representation of the displayed content and thus helps to capture scenes with fast movements more clearly. To implement the method, the processor uses real footage to calculate synthetic frames that are continuously inserted throughout the existing content at matching points.

With the help of Philips’ own Hue brand, the Ambilight functionality of your TV can be extended beyond the illumination on the back of the device. For this purpose, various solutions are offered by the company in the form of floor lamps, table lamps and wall lamps. Light strips can also be integrated into your configuration. Additionally, you can set the components according to your requirements via an associated app and thus save different colour moods and access them when needed.

Ultra Resolution is used to convert Full HD material into Ultra HD resolution. So, basically, it’s Philips’ internal upscaling method. This function increases the number of pixels in a logical way with appropriate information. On this basis, the content can be displayed over the entire screen surface without appearing blurred.

Philips PUS8807 Review

The all-in-one package?

Apparently, the Dutch-Chinese electronics company is discontinuing the compatibility of its in-house Hue products with the Ambilight feature on models from the 2023 line-up. Until now, you could combine the Hue light sources provided by Philips in form of different lamps or LED strips with many Ambilight TVs in a simple way using an app and thus build up a much larger setup.Β 

However, this option will probably no longer be available in the future. It remains to be seen whether this will be changed at a later date. The company has not officially commented on the procedure itself or the background of this decision.

In addition to the usual characteristics such as brightness, contrast or viewing angle, the topic of reflection resistance tends to be given lower priority in TVs. Especially with OLEDs, however, a good solution at this point offers special added value. Why? Devices with this technology still have a major weakness in terms of luminance.Β 

While the rate for the highest possible brightness continues to increase and often serves as a primary selling point, the measurement results over larger areas or even the entire picture remain far from backlit TVs. This can be a problem especially in light-flooded rooms with reflective objects and sunlight.Β 

To make screens more resistant to such factors, several manufacturers have confirmed a new anti-reflective coating called “AR” for the upcoming 2023 lineup. In addition to LG’s G3 and the Philips OLED908, Panasonic’s MZ2000 series and all QD screens Samsung is launching will benefit from this improvement. According to LG, this should reduce specular reflections by up to 70 percent and overall reflection by 30 percent. In addition, the reddish-pink hue will be replaced by a more neutral tone.

The Chinese-Dutch electronics manufacturer has unveiled its TV lineup for this year at its TP Vision Live digital home event. In addition to the expected successors of the relevant 900 and 800 model series OLED+908 and OLED808 – the first of which has the state-of-the-art meta panel – and two fresh versions of “The One“, the portfolio will also get the addition of a completely new series with “The Xtra” in fall.Β 

With its 120 Hertz panel, the brand-new mini-LED is supposed to close the gap between the all-rounder “The One” and the premium range of OLED+ models, and at the same time become the brightest backlit model to date. Philips mentions a brightness of up to 1000 nits.

From now on, owners of older Philips TVs can get an update of their operating system. The electronics manufacturer leaves out version 10 and jumps directly to Android 11, which is the current OS version of its 2022 lineup. However, it usually takes several weeks or even months until the over-the-air update arrives. Once installed, the software is supposed to bring some small improvements.

These include the implementation of voice recognition via the Gboard TV keyboard, ALLM support for apps, Instant Apps, and wider support for input devices like Nintendo’s Switch Pro model via Bluetooth and USB, and Valve’s Steam controller via USB. A manual download via link is not available.

The following models are included:

OLED935, OLED805, PUS9235, PUS9005, PUS8505, OLED984, OLED934, OLED854, OLED804, PUS8804, PUS7504, PUS7304

TP Vision, the parent company of Philips, is also considering adding TV models with QD technology to its lineup. However, the company would first have to buy the corresponding technology from Samsung Display. If this path is actually taken, Philips would be the third manufacturer to enter the market with such panels, alongside Samsung and Sony. Danny Tack, Head of Product Strategy, recently announced this possibility in an interview.

Introduced in August, the top models from the series 9 are now available in Germany and the UK. Alongside the new miniLED TV PML9507 in 55″, 65β€œ and a 75″ version, you can now also buy the two OLEDs 907 and 937. The former is available in 48″, 55″ and 65 inches. Philips also offers the latter in 77 inches in addition to a 65-inch variant.

All three models support Dolby Vision and come with the Android TV 11 OS. The two OLED TVs also have a heat sink that is supposed to boost the OLED EX panel up to 1300 nits of peak brightness and a sound system from Bowers and Wilkins in each case.. In terms of pricing, the new TVs are also on the expected high level.

The new LCD TV by Philips are now available in Germany and Europe.Β  While the higher-priced ones are equipped with Android 11, the Philips 7607 uses the Linux-based Saphi. The new Game Bar is especially aimed at console owners and summarizes almost all important information like frame rate, resolution and more in a compact way.
