As we have already discussed, CES is the best showcase for manufacturers to showcase their new televisions. This year only Samsung has missed the appointment, which has barely let us see its MicroLED television. However, others such as Panasonic, LG or Sony have shown their entire catalog. But we were missing Philips, another of the most important manufacturers worldwide. The new models come with support for Dolby Vision as a great novelty. But not only that, they also include a new Sonic Emotion sound system and a new rear lighting system called BrightPro 2. Let's see what features the 2018 Philips TVs include .
As we anticipated, Philips has partnered with Dolby to offer the Dolby Vision HDR system in its new televisions . It seems that more and more manufacturers are betting on this technology, which does not mean abandoning HDR10.
On the other hand, the manufacturer is committed to a new sound system with Sonic Emotion technology . This system offers a wider sound, similar to that achieved by some high-end soundbars. Always according to Philips. In addition, improvements are also expected in the NetTV + platform, with the incorporation of new streaming apps.
That said, the new 2018 Philips TV range can be summed up into three series. The top of the range for LED televisions will be the 69 Series . These will offer the commented compatibility with Dolby Vision and will be able to cover 75% of the BT.2020 color space. It will also include the BrightPro 2 lighting system. This helps to achieve better brightness and the subtler tones that characterize Dolby Vision. It also offers up to 2 times higher than the conventional lighting system.
Philips Series 57
The 69 Series will arrive in 50-, 55- and 65-inch sizes. One step behind will be the 59 Series, featuring a first-generation BrightPro rear lighting system . This will come in sizes from 43 to 75 inches with characteristics very similar to the higher-end model. They will include 802.11ac WiFi with MIMO antennas, HDMI 2.0a with HDCP 2.2 and Sonic Emotion Premium audio.
The new 2018 Philips TV range will close the 57 Series . Not many details have been given about this, but we do know that it will not incorporate the BrightPro lighting system. It will also dispense with the new NetTV + functionality.
Prices have not been revealed at the moment, but we do know that the new Philips televisions will hit the market from April .
