Pixel Plus for detail, depth and clarity Pixel Plus is a digital picture processing technology that increases the number of lines and the number of pixels. The result is razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth, every time from any source.

Dynamic contrast enhancer delivering rich black details You want the LCD flat display with the highest contrast and most vibrant images even at wide viewing angle. The Philips dynamic contrast enhancer uses video processing and unique dimming backlight technology. This delivers deep rich black levels with increased detail. The dimming backlight increases the contrast up to 5 times*, and at the same time improves the viewing angle. It gives a bright, lifelike picture with high contrast and vibrant colors, (* factor between 2 and 5, screen type and picture content dependant).

Dolby Digital for movies or concerts in full surround sound Because Dolby Digital and DTS, the world's leading digital multi-channel audio standards, make use of the way the human ear naturally processes sound, you experience superb quality surround sound audio with realistic spatial cues.

Compact and slim design that fits in every room This design style emphasizes a slim, compact look that saves space and fits in anywhere.

Plug & Play for easier installation Plug & Play gives you the ability to install or add a new component and have it work without having to perform any complex installation procedure or technical analysis.

HDMI input for full digital HD connection in one cable HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
