Easy to use, with USB connectivity

Connecting to high definition video and audio devices

To get the best out of the high definition quality of sources like Blu-ray Disc, HDTV set-top boxes and HD games platforms, Philips latest FlatTVs feature dual HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) connections. HDMI is the first and only industry-supported, all-digital audio/video interface, delivering crystal-clear, pure digital audio and video via a single cable. HDMI dramatically simplifies cabling and provides consumers with the highest-quality home theatre experience.

Picture enhancing technologies

Pixel Plus 2HD
Philips? Pixel Plus 2HD technology takes picture sharpness, natural detail, colours and motion to a level beyond that of standard television.  Each pixel of the incoming picture is enhanced to better match the surrounding pixels resulting in a more natural picture.  In addition, artifacts and digital noise in the picture are detected and reduced creating a much smoother picture than ever before.

Digital Natural Motion
Philips invented Digital Natural Motion to eliminate juddering effects that are visible with moving picture content. Digital Natural Motion estimates motion in the picture and corrects juddering movements in both broadcast and recorded movie material (such as DVD). The smooth motion reproduction and excellent sharpness take the viewing experience to a higher level.

Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
The Dynamic Contrast Enhancer uses a unique dimming backlight technology to answer one of the main concerns of LCD TV ? contrast.  The 32PFL7532D and 42PFL7532D both utilise video processing and a dimming backlight to increase the contrast up to 5 times, whilst also improving the viewing angle.  The result is a bright natural picture with a high contrast ratio of 7500:1 and vibrant colours.
