TP Vision unveils a new series of frameless Philips Smart TVs

•    The purist looks of Philips PFL6900 Smart TVs fit perfectly into contemporary interiors

•    There’s no compromise on Ambilight and connectivity despite the TVs’ slim design

•    Smart TV, 3D, Full HD, Micro Dimming and 600Hz PMR motion enhancement provide a high-quality TV experience

Amsterdam, 30st August, 2012 – Today, TP Vision announced its new series of Philips PFL6900 Smart TVs, which stand out due to their purist, frameless* design. The 3D-enabled Philips PFL6900 Smart TVs offer value-added services including catch-up TV, access to online video stores, web browsing, apps and USB recording. Superb motion enhancement and advanced micro dimming provide excellent picture quality on the PFL6900 models’ 107cm (42’’) and 119cm (47’’) Full HD screens. Although they are only 3.5cm thick, the PFL6900 TVs still come with two-sided Ambilight. Shipping of the new Philips Smart TVs has already started in Europe and Russia. The first Philips PFL6900 units are available immediately.

Purist and timeless design
The Philips PFL6900’s purist design sits well in the contemporary home. The frameless panel is set in an unobtrusive 1.2mm rim of brushed, anodized aluminium allowing for a truly immersive cinema viewing experience. The TVs are rounded off at the bottom by a small black chamfer with brushed look finish. A ‘light and airy’ stand matches the TVs’ colour scheme and purist looks perfectly.

Smart TVs in a smart design
Furnished with the latest Smart TV features, including access to online video stores, catch-up TV services, electronic program guide, apps, and the internet, the PFL6900 TVs provide an excellent entertainment experience. Users can pause their TV program or record digital content by connecting a USB hard disk to the TV. The PFL6900 models are compatible with Philips’ MyRemote App, an app for Android and iOS mobile devices. It brings features like easy text entry, volume and program control as well as pushing pictures, videos or music to the TV from the mobile touch screen devices. Wi-Fi Smart Screen** further expands the interplay between Philips TVs and tablets by allowing users to pull digital TV towards the mobile device using just a finger swipe.

Advanced 3D entertainment
The PFL6900 series is equipped with many advanced 3D features. 2D to 3D conversion adds the third dimension to users’ 2D video libraries while 3D Depth Adjustment adjusts the 3D depth level. In ‘Two Player Full Screen Gaming’ mode both players of 2D games can enjoy the game in full screen at the same time.

Brilliant picture quality
Users always want to enjoy movies in the best possible picture quality. Pixel Precise HD on the PFL6900 TVs, featuring Super Resolution, delivers brilliant HD TV picture quality for videos from the internet or Blu-ray movies. 600Hz Perfect Motion Rate (PMR) creates great motion sharpness for clear and vibrant images in fast action movies.

No compromise on connectivity
The PFL6900 series’ slim casing doesn’t compromise connectivity. The TVs feature four HDMI and three USB ports which are neatly arranged at the rear side and easy accessible. They also have WLAN on board to wirelessly connect to the home network.

Quote: Maarten de Vries, CEO TP Vision

“The Philips PFL6900 Smart TVs – and also the recently launched Philips DesignLine models – clearly show TP Vision’s dedication to good TV design. With their purist, zero-border design these TVs come close to what we one day will call TV wallpaper.“

* The TV does not have a frame but the panel itself shows a slim black inactive zone when the TV is switched on

**Wi-Fi smart screen is available via software update in autumn 2012
