The Philips AmbiLux TV was announced at the ongoing [IFA 2015](]Ifa 2015]: Ifa 2015] Pictures, News Articles, Videos trade show event in Berlin. To note, China-based TP Vision makes Philips-branded televisions. The highlight of the AmbiLux TV? It features an integrated projector.
The AmbiLux TV sports a 65-inch display that utilises the built-in Ambilight projection system, which as the name suggests, lets you project on-screen images, motion, and colour to the rear wall. It does so by using the nine pico projectors integrated on the TV.
As for the specifications, the Philips AmbiLux TV with model number 65PUS8901 comes with a 4K Ultra HD LCD (3840x2160 pixels) display panel that offers 400nit brightness. The TV features 30W DTS speakers, and runs Android TV (v5.1), the device comes with several Google apps, Netflix, Spotify Connect, and other apps pre-installed on it. It offers 16GB internal storage, with four HDMI 2.0 ports, three USB 3.0 ports and other standard connectivity features. It also features a remote control with a Qwerty keyboard, swipe pad, and speech recognition.
The immersive experience isn't limited to visual delight. The company says that the lights will match the dynamics of the music that is playing on the television. But how? By changing the colours. The company says that the halo of light "react to the dynamics of any music played through the TV."
The company says that the new TV does sophisticated processing to upscale images to UHD, addressing the lack of 4K content on the market. The company doesn't have a release date and pricing information to share with the public at the moment, however.
