• Philips 7000 series models are an excellent choice for film lovers who don’t want to compromise on design
• New Ambilight Gaming Mode makes TV gaming more immersive; embedded Ambilight+hue control panel extends the mood lighting into the living room
• 7500 series provides vibrant sound through a powerful, wireless sub-woofer • 7800 series offers excellent 4K Ultra HD picture quality
Amsterdam, March 18th, 2014 – TP Vision presents its new Philips 7000 range of slim, high-class Smart TVs. The ultra-slim 7100, 7500, and 7800 series convince even the most demanding cineastes with their superb picture quality playing back Full HD and 4K Ultra HD (only 7800) content with life-like, natural pictures and fluent motion. A frameless design made of glass and metal gives the 7500 and 7800 series Philips TVs an ultra-slim silhouette. Advanced TV features – including 3D-TV, Ambilight, easy access to the Philips Smart TV offering and comprehensive connectivity – provide a TV experience that goes far beyond the limits of traditional TVs. The Philips 7000 Smart TVs will be available from the second quarter of 2014 in Europe and Russia.
Advanced picture quality with natural motion
The 7000 series has all the essentials on board to deliver a pin-sharp and brilliant TV experience with smooth motion. It also features Micro Dimming Pro, a sensor-based technology that dynamically adapts the LED backlight depending on the ambient room light; this delivers impressive contrast through deep blacks and bright whites.
Philips 7800 4K ULTRA HD series with high-level upscaling feature
The 7800 series is the first Philips 4K ULTRA HD model being introduced in 2014. The upscaling feature Ultra Resolution allows any content to be viewed in vivid 4K ULTRA HD resolution providing great sharpness, detail and depth impression with natural colours and high contrast thanks to deeper blacks and brighter whites.
Wireless sub-woofer delivers irresistible sound
A powerful wireless sub-woofer adds irresistible sound to the fantastic pictures on the 7500 series Philips TVs. The sub-woofer can be discreetly hidden under an armchair or the sofa, so as not to spoil the interior décor. Its omnidirectional, vibrant bass together with the light effects from three-sided Ambilight create an impressive cinema-like atmosphere. Gamers will also love the combination of true sound with the immersive light effects of Ambilight.
Enhanced Ambilight experience
Ambilight – two-sided on 7100 and 7800 series and three-sided on 7500 series – now offers an additional Gaming Mode. It enables Ambilight to quickly follow the fast moving scenes of action and sports games. The integrated Ambilight+hue control panel allows users to extend the Ambilight experience throughout the whole room without the need for smartphones to setup and control the Philips Hue lamps*.
Smart TV, smart control
Philips 7000 series TVs provide full access to the Philips Smart TV offering, which include access to video rental, video on demand, catch-up TV, and online apps. Cloud TV lets users choose from hundreds of online TV channels from all over the world. Cloud Explorer makes sharing private photos and videos easy. The remote control with a full keyboard makes text input fast and efficient. In addition, the 7500 series models support pointing control to facilitate navigation through the menu and app galleries.
Diverse communication options
The Philips 7000 series comes with a broad selection of interfaces and ports. They also support Philips MyRemote app, Wi-Fi Miracast™ and SimplyShare to allow wireless streaming to and from mobile devices. This allows smartphones and tablets to be integrated easily with the TVs. MultiRoom viewing permits content to be streamed to a secondary TV anywhere in the house.
