FC Barcelona Star Joins the AMBILIGHT TV Family

Football superstar Ilkay Gündogan becomes the latest member of the Ambilight TV club

Millions of Philips TV owners already know that Ambilight TV ‘changes everything’ and that opinion now extends to one of FC Barcelona’s first team superstars, who has also had his own chance to enjoy Ambilight’s unique ability to turn regular TV viewing into an immersive viewing experience simply like no other.

Football star Ilkay Gündogan is currently enjoying his own Ambilight TV first hand, a unique experience that has drawn the player’s approval and his agreement to become the new ‘face’ of Ambilight TV.

Commenting on the appointment, Kostas Vouzas, CEO, TP Vision (Philips TV & Sound Europe & Americas) said: ‘The experience of watching movies and sport, especially football, is taken to an entirely new, immersive level by Ambilight TV. All FC Barcelona teams and staff have the chance to enjoy Ambilight first hand so they can appreciate how far beyond oridinary television Ambilight TV goes. I’m delighted that the experience has led to Ilkay to becoming the new face of the brand. I’m sure his Ambilight TV will change the way he views his favourite movies and sport. Which just leaves me to welcome him to the AMBILIGHT tv family’.

TP Vision, the company responsible for the design, manufacturing and sales of Philips branded Ambilight TVs is, since May 2023, a main partner of FC Barcelona. The Ambilight logo appears on the men’s first team shirts and is prominently displayed inside the stadium, thus presented to millions of viewers at home.

Ambilight TV gives the impression of a larger, better TV image that extends beyond the physical boundaries of the set, with the TV appearing to be floating rather than fixed on the wall.

The benefit of adding a halo of light has long been established in the movie world but TP Vision’s own research has shown that the added sophistication of Ambilight can extend the enhancement to sport and is particularly successful with football.

Ambilight TV has already proven to be a huge success with one of the highest satisfaction ratings by the consumer electronics industry and scores extremely highly as a reason for intended repeat purchases of TV sets amongst existing Philips TV customers.
