Amsterdam, 11th December, 2012 – Today, TP Vision announced that the Philips 47PFL6907 Smart LED TV was awarded the ‘iF product design award 2013’. This award is one of the most prestigious awards for innovative product design and is sponsored by International Forum Design GmbH, Hanover (Germany).
TP Vision focuses on superb design
“Having again received an iF design award for one of our TVs is a great recognition of TP Vision’s dedication to superb TV design,” said Rod White, Senior Creative Director at TP Vision. “With our 6900 series we created a unique and meaningful design, visibly delivering on three key user needs: superior performance, exceptional connectivity and contemporary user-centric design.”
Purist and timeless looks
The Philips 47PFL6907’s purist design, complemented by the wall-colour adaptive Ambilight fits well into modern, contemporary homes. The display glass is framed with a very slim brushed aluminium frame, with a brushed metallic lower detail displaying the distinctive Philips style. The open chrome, steel swivel stand matches the TV’s material palette and enhances the TVs’ ‘interior fit’ credentials.
Blending design with usability and performance
Furnished with a broad selection of interface options and the latest Smart TV features, the 47PFL6907 provides an excellent entertainment experience. The 119cm (47’’) TV is compatible with Philips’ MyRemote App for Android and iOS mobile devices. It offers features such as easy text entry, program control and the option to push pictures, videos or music to the TV from mobile touch screen devices. Wi-Fi Smart Screen further expands the interplay between TV and tablets by allowing users to pull digital TV towards the mobile device using just a finger swipe. High performance motion and picture enhancements deliver great picture quality in both 2D and 3D.
Sophisticated TV design is wanted by consumers
“The iF design award for our PFL6900 TV series is another motivation to keep pursuing our distinctive design approach,” said Maarten de Vries, CEO of TP Vision. “Next year, we plan to expand our range of frameless TVs and bring out more models featuring high-quality materials. We will set a clear focus on sophisticated design.”
