Apart from the HD feature, the new Phillips series of TVs have Natural Light 2 Engine technology which modulates power consumption by adjusting brightness. The Natural Light Engine feature also controls how deep dark colors appear, and thus also improves picture quality – thereby letting viewers watch TV for long periods without feeling the strain on their eyes.

Philips’ new range also has digital noise reduction and dynamic audio system technologies, as well as HDMI and USB 2.0 ports through which the TVs can be connected to other devices such as smartphones and PCs.

The LCD televisions have DDHD3E (digital dynamic Hi-definition engine 3rd generation) technology, which is said to enhance color and contrast ratios, thus making images appear sharper and more detailed.

In related news, Philips said it will soon launch its flagship flat panel TV, Cinema 21:9 TV, along with a range of other flat panel televisions in India. The Cinema 21:9 is said to be the world’s first cinema proportion 3D LED TV with ambilight.
