TP Vision unveils extensive new range of Philips TVs for 2013

21 Feb 2013

We first caught a glimpse of TP Vision's 2013 Philips TV range at CES back in January, but at the time everything was under embargo except its prototype glasses-free 4K 3D screen.

Today all is revealed, and we have details of the forthcoming Philips 4200, 5000, 6000, 7000 and 8000 ranges, due on sale in the second quarter of this year.

That's quite a line-up. It begins with the PFL4208 small-screen models in 22in and 24in sizes, with integrated wi-fi for connecting to smart TV services, LED backlighting and the option of making Skype video calls using an optional USB camera. A PC input means they can also be used as computer monitors.

The Philips PFL7008 and PFL7108 models have a silver-black or white frameless design, three-sided Ambilight, advanced connectivity and streaming features. The 7008 features a bezeless front glass panel sitting in a thin rim made of black, brushed aluminium with a silver-coloured strip below the screen.

In contrast, the 7108 features a white lower detail, stand and rear cover. Both have an integrated Skype camera. They include the streaming and sharing technology used in the PFL6008, and come in 42, 47 and 55in sizes.

Last, but by no means least, is the flagship PFL8008 range. This brings "a clean stainless steel design with superior picture and sound quality". The glass screen has a dark steel surround and polished chrome 'U Frame' stand, with a Skype camera in the Philips badge below the screen.

Powered by high-performance, dual-core processors, the PFL8008 TVs offer 1400Hz Perfect Motion Rate plus Super 3D Resolution, three-sided Ambilight, smart TV functionality and media sharing via wi-fi. They are active 3D designs and come in 46 and 55in screen sizes.

the 500hz perfect motion rate is prolly marketing flannel and not usefull tech, certainly wont help from a 3d perspective will introduce lag and create your standard weird soap feel prolly, pinch of salt to be taken with the words 500hz, similar flannel to words like million to 1 contrast ratio etc or LG's Full HD 3D passive 3D.

Well, they look thoroughly underwhelming, whilst at the same time being great tvs.  Just a slight upgrade on 2012 models (which STILL have major software issues yet to be resolved).


From all the fan fare I was expecting an announcement regarding their partnership with DOLBY 3D, since on their site Dolby say that the tech is available and ready to go  

mentioning the 9707, any idea where I could get my hands on a brand new one?

I assume not, but we'll get confirmation from Philips at the European launch next week.

So does this mean that the moth-eye flagship 46PFL9707 is not being continued?

they look amazing Smile the 500hz perfect motion rate 


Well it looks like Philips isn't giving up yet and by the looks of things the tvs look the business.
