Philips Pushes Out a New Lineup of HDTVs


Philips has unveiled a new HDTV lineup at its annual Winter Media Event in Barcelona, Spain. The new 7000, 8000 and 9000 series LED  HDTVs boast a smarter version of the company's Ambilight technology and can adjust hues based on the wall behind them.

The company plans to sell a 3D upgrade kit for TVs in the 8000 and 9000 series. The kit will contain a pair of active-shutter glasses and a wireless transmitter. A 3D upgrade pack for its unreleased Cinema 21:9 TV is also on the cards. The company now hopes to begin shipping the 21:9 TV during summer 2010. The prospect of 3D on a HDTV with a 21:9 aspect ratio is worth the wait.
