Berlin, September 3rd, 2015 – Today the stunning Philips 9600 TV is launching as a true picture quality flagship for the 2015 range. Offering exceptional picture quality, an innovative sound solution and a beautifully sculpted design, the 9600 is a simply stunning TV. Available in a 65-inch (164cm) screen size, the 9600 set will go on sale during the fourth quarter in Europe and Russia.

The new High Dynamic Range standard offers a whole new contrast experience
Content created for the new High Dynamic Range standard has been mastered to new levels of brightness in studios using monitors capable of 4000-10000 Nit. Displaying this newly mastered content on the Philips Bright Premium display delivers the ultimate picture quality with brighter highlights, deeper blacks, more vivid colours and better details.

Bright Premium for exceptional contrast and superior brightness
Philips Bright Premium makes use of a display with more average light output (600 Nit) than a normal LED backlight (450 Nit) and is also capable of creating peak light boosts up to 1000 Nit. The resulting image displays crisp bright whites, offering beautiful lifelike pictures with superior contrast and vivid colour in daylight or evening conditions.

Micro Dimming Premium and a direct LED backlight for exceptional contrast with velvety blacks
The 9600 Philips UHD TV uses a state-of-the-art 2D Dimming panel, capable of producing peaks of 1000 Nit light output for incredible contrast with striking, lifelike brightness. The award winning Micro Dimming Premium system produces superb contrast levels of 10,000,000:1 and accurately analyses 6400 zones in every picture while adjusting each of the 256 independent segments within the backlight. The end result is reference quality, lifelike pictures with more brilliant whites, deeper velvety blacks and superior contrast.

Perfect Pixel Ultra HD Engine elevates 4K UHD picture quality to a whole new level
Philips’ award winning Perfect Pixel Ultra HD Engine focuses on four key elements: sharpness, motion, contrast and colour. Advanced picture quality engines digitally adjust and optimise picture quality to deliver clean and razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth. Good quality sources are optimised, whilst poorer quality or non-UHD inputs are offered noise free thanks to Advanced Digital Noise Reduction (DNR) producing images with vivid, brilliant colours and natural, lifelike skin tones.

Ultra Resolution upscaling technology for 4K UHD picture quality from any source
Ultra Resolution transforms the original pixels into better pixels. Using this powerful upscaling technology any content, from any source is converted into a sharper Ultra HD picture for a visibly more refined image with finer lines and greater detail.

Perfect Natural Motion and 200Hz for fluid, razor sharp moving images
Perfect Natural Motion is a Philips award winning motion enhancement technology that uses 4 Billion pixels processing power for judder free motion. The combination with a 200Hz 4k UHD panel creates moving images of supreme sharpness and the smoothest, most fluid motion imaginable.

4-sided Ambilight completes the totally immersive viewing experience
Philips’ unique Ambilight technology projects an ever changing band of light – that precisely matches the on-screen content – onto the wall behind the TV around all four sides of the set. With 4-sided Ambilight the 9600 creates TV without boundaries to provide an amazingly involving viewing experience, creating the illusion that the 9600 TV is floating in a halo of light.

Pure design and sound innovation
The 9600 comes with a very slim metal bezel around its 164cm (65’’) screen and the chrome ‘blade’ feet enhance its elegant European design. The TV’s clean design, premium materials and high-end finish are complemented beautifully by the four-sided Ambilight halo.

Completing the stunning design is an integrated super-slim speaker system in polished metal that is attached just below the screen. This includes two extra front-firing tweeters that combine with three rear-firing subwoofers to offer 50W of huge but detailed and rich sound.

Android TV and Hex Core processing for enhanced Smart TV experience
The Philips 9600 TVs are powered by Android TV; giving access to all TV orientated apps, services, and content in the Google™ Play store while also complementing the existing Philips Smart TV offering. Effortless operation and fast navigation is possible thanks to powerful Hex Core processing and an advanced remote control with QWERTY/AZERTY keyboard, swipe pad and speech recognition technology.
