An incredible 80 ‘Best TV’ reviews and awards across European media in 2019 proved that Philips OLED TVs led the market for outright picture performance – thanks primarily to the introduction of the 3rd Generation P5 processor.
Now in 2020, the new OLED805/855 models will feature the 4th Gen P5 processor to build upon the power and numerous processing benefits of the previous P5 but with the addition of new Artificial Intelligence functionality, to take what was already the best TV picture quality up to a new and even higher level.
The in-house developed 4th Gen P5’s AI Functionality uses neural networks and machine learning to analyse millions of PQ test clips from a unique database created inhouse by the Philips TV, and now TP Vision, development team over the past 30 years.
The AI software does not seek to simply produce even more output from each of the five pillars of PQ (source, colour, contrast, motion and sharpness) but is designed to create a better balance between them. By analysing all elements of the content, frame by frame, the 4th Gen P5 reproduces a much more realistic, natural image that no longer feels like TV but creates images that closely mirror real life.
TP Vision’s PQ experts define the system’s overall parameters which the AI software then uses to divide content into five categories: Landscape/nature, skin tone, sports/motion, black/contrast and animation. The AI function selects the correct category and analyses all five PQ pillars, to adjust the balance between them – in order to create the most natural, realistic and life-like image.
Philips TV is one of very few brands to support all of the major HDR standards, allowing consumers to access the widest range of HDR content – via disc, set-top box and multiple streaming services.
The 4th Gen P5 AI processor continues to offer better overall HDR performance including for both HDR10 & HDR10+ sources and improves Dolby Vision encoded dynamic HDR content using the special “Dolby Bright mode”.
Philips TV unique Perfect Natural Reality also continues to feature the improved specular detection function with better region classification in conjunction with inverse tone mapping. The result is improved contrast, more depth impression and a more realistic reproduction of reflections – plus better sharpness and more natural and accurate skin tones, all helping to transform SDR content into a true HDR-like picture.
The excellent sound quality of the previous models has been further improved. The 50-Watt system now features a new woofer design with the inclusion of four passive radiators for extra, deeper bass while the two front speakers integrate new mid-range drivers and upgraded tweeters for a cleaner, more detailed performance.
The OLED805 and 855 both feature Dolby Atmos decoding, the Dolby Atmos Virtualizer function and Dolby bass and dialogue enhancement.
The new sets are equally Smart, featuring Android TV version 9 (Pie) with ease of use guaranteed by both the Google Assistant built-in and Works with Alexa capabilities.
The OLED805 and OLED855 share the best in European Design with an ultra slim chassis, edgeless bezels and high-quality metal finish. The OLED805 features the new chamfered ‘stand, finished in dark chrome. while the OLED855 has a new central stand angled to the table – also in dark chrome. Both stands are designed to give the impression that the sets are floating above the table-top:
Both sets also include a new, premium Remote Control with elegant, flush, backlit keys, in a metalized finish. For the ultimate luxury touch, the sides and rear of the Remote Control are wrapped in responsibly sourced leather from Scottish leather specialists Muirhead.
