Philips New 65” OLED 9 Series Turns TV into ART

Berlin, August 31, 2017 – Art on TV or TV as ART. There’s no longer any need to choose thanks to the launch of the new Philips 65” OLED 9 series TV – a set that is a stunning as the images it recreates.

This new Philips TV combines the latest OLED technology with Philips TV P5 Perfect Picture engine and three-sided Ambilight system to create a new flagship product for the Philips TV range and a new reference for outright picture quality.

  • P5 Perfect Picture Processing Engine
  • UHD Premium and HDR Perfect performance level

Black level, color and motion – outstanding OLED leads the way

With the new OLED 9 series, OLED technology, the P5 engine and Ambilight combine to make the perfect partnership.

The ability of OLED TVs to completely switch off their light source at each and every pixel allows an infinite black level to be reproduced.

This new Philips OLED TV can also produce a peak white output of 900 nits ensuring a huge, unmatched contrast ratio and allowing the brightest and darkest elements of an image to be reproduced on-screen simultaneously.

Producing pure black levels also allows OLED sets to offer a more accurate and vibrant color palette to be produced with the OLED 9 Series reproducing an exceptionally wide color gamut (99% DCI-P3).

The 65” OLED 9 series also enjoys a hugely improved viewing angle over edge lit LCD TVs, delivering incredibly consistent brightness, color and contrast, to wherever the viewer is seated.

Finally, OLED TVs are typically more than 100 times faster than traditional LED based TVs, giving super-fast response times to ensure motion is always razor sharp.

OLED and P5 – The perfect partnership

With the new Philips P5 processing engine already delivering a 50% performance improvement over the previous – and still impressive – Perfect Pixel Ultra HD engine, it’s no surprise that the 65” OLED 9 series TV hits Philips highest ever picture performance index score with an incredible 3800 PPI.

P5 has the power of five processors in one with the sheer processing scale necessary to easily handle the masses of data delivered by Ultra HD and 4K images. P5 analyses, deconstructs and individually addresses each of the five variables that define picture quality: Source perfection, Sharpness, Color, Contrast and Motion.

Much of the content that feeds our televisions contains annoying visual imperfections such as noise and artefacts. The P5 Source Perfection corrects these, reducing noise without introducing annoying blurring while eliminating banding by extending 8 bit video to near 14 bit precision.

Many sources of content have a much lower resolution than the 4K quality that today’s screens are capable of displaying. The P5’s Perfect Sharpness Ultra Resolution Upscaling and Detail Enhancer transforming content into a sharper Ultra HD picture for a more refined image with noticeably more depth and dimension.

Color reproduction is also exceptional thanks to the natural wide color gamut of the OLED panel being further improved by Philips’ P5 Perfect Color system featuring a 17-bit color booster and intelligent color processing For more intense, vivid colors and more natural skin tones.

Ambilight – a better connection

Ambilight integration reaches new heights with the 65” OLED 9 series TV thanks to the ultra-slim bezel allowing a near seamless connection with the on-screen images. The three sided Ambilight Spectra XL system is able to further enhance the TV’s already exceptional color vibrancy and huge contrast ratio while creating a more immersive viewing experience than previously available.

Sound Integration by design

As a flagship set, the 65” OLED 9 series truly reflects the company’s focus on outstanding European design and craftsmanship which extends to the refined proportions and beautiful, natural materials used throughout.

Craftsmanship is further emphasized by the chassis and its extremely tight fit with the dimensions of the OLED panel and by the innovative integration of the outstanding

6.1 high-end 60W sound system within the stand.

The system features six front firing drivers – mounted in the aluminum and Kvadrat speaker cloth covered  integrated sound base – to bring exceptional detail and clarity to all mid and high notes while a backfiring Triple Ring speaker – with an integrated bass port – ensures the deepest, tightest bass performance. The sound base can be used either on a table top or wall mounted, in either case, the speaker cloth remians clearly visible and the same incredible sound quality is delivered.

Android Smart

The 65” OLED 9 series is powered by the Android M TM Smart TV system and is certified by Google, giving access to all TV orientated apps, services, and content in the Google Play Store while also complementing the existing Philips Smart TV offering. Effortless operation and fast navigation is possible thanks to powerful Quad Core processing and an advanced remote control with QWERTY keyboard, swipe pad and speech recognition technology.
