TVB Tech Alert: Phillips Releases Ultra Widescreen TV

UltrawidescreenTVAMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: The new Philips ultra widescreen hi-def TV set has hit the street, according to Unbeatable.co.uk. The LCD model sports a 21:9 aspect ratio capable of displaying likewise cinematic formats, such as Panavision, without letterboxing the picture.

The Philips 21:9 features a 200 MHz refresh rate, five HDMIs, WiFi, a USB Port, the Philips Pixel Perfect HD Engine and Ambilight technology that projects the same color of light being shown on the TV onto the wall behind the set, making the picture appear even larger. The set is said to be priced at £4,500, or $7,347 U.S. at current exchange rates.

Philips unveiled the 21:9 LCD set in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The initial release markets included the United Kingdom, Belgium, France and Germany. -- Deborah D. McAdams
