Philips 58PFL9955H Cinema 21:9 LCD TV
The Philips 58PFL9955H Cinema 21:9 LCD TV in 3D is the world’s first TV to deliver a true-to-life 3D viewing experience just like at the cinema. Its ultra-wide 58-inch screen in 21:9 aspect ratio with Perfect Pixel HD engine, LED Pro and Ambilight Spectra 3, matches the original movie format so you get no black bars or picture loss, but movies the way directors intended them to be seen.
With an energy-efficient, ultra-slim screen, the Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV in 3D vividly brings entertainment to life and allows you to connect to a whole range of online entertainment. The 58-inch Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV in 3D embodies both performance and style, providing unrivaled sharpness, natural detail, vivid colours, superior contrast and smooth natural motion with the powerful combination of the Perfect Pixel HD Engine picture processing and LED Pro technology. It is also the fastest LCD TV available in the world today, with an improved refresh rate of only 0.5ms (1ms in 2009), delivering superb motion sharpness with a 400Hz Clear LCD.
Equipped with Net TV, the Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV in 3D even gives you access to online content direct through your TV.

The new Philips 9000 LED TVs – 46PFL9705H and 40PFL9705H – claim to deliver superior  home entertainment experience. Incorporating the 2010 Perfect Pixel HD Engine with 500 million pixels per second processing power and Full HD display, the TVs ensure clean and razor sharp images resulting from artifact and noise detection and reduction.

Enjoy the action without any judder with Perfect Natural Motion technology, while Bright Pro, building on Philips award winning LED Pro that boosts light output for sections of the image while maintaining the ink-black dark sections, provides blazing contrast. Over 1000 LEDs operate independently to generate brilliant light in bright image areas, and dimmed completely in dark areas to save up to 50 percent in energy use.
Available in 40- and 46-inch screen, the design of the 9000 Series reflects refinement, precision engineering and performance. Featuring a full, dark brushed aluminium frame and base, touch control stainless steel leading edge, and matching aluminium remote control with chrome highlights, it exudes quality both in form and function.
Philips HTS9520 HD Home theater
With the Philips HTS9520 HD Home theater with 360Sound which has Blu-ray 3D playback, redefine the way you watch movies with 360Sound speakers which have uniquely positioned sound drivers that fill your entire room with crisp and clear surround sound, just like in a movie theatre. Each satellite speaker has three drivers: one firing forward and two as side-firing structures. These ensure that sound is not simply sent in a straight line directly at you. Instead, they deliver sound that curves around to fully envelop you. The result of this ‘tri-pole’ combination is sound that comes at you from every different angle, no matter where you are in the room.
The HTS9520 is full HD 3D Blu-ray equipped, with a DLNA Network Link, and NET TV, so you can play your favourite videos, view your pictures or enjoy your music from various sources on your Philips Cinema 21:9 LCD TV or 9000 LED Series of TVs. Pair these together, and you can achieve a full suite of visuals and sound to obtain an unrivalled home cinematic experience.
