Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Today, Philips announced its new 3000 series LCD TVs. The models, featuring a Full HD screen and powerful sound equipment, are targeted at consumers who want easy-to-use TVs with high picture quality, great sound and connectivity at a decent price. The screen sizes of the 3000 series range from 81cm (32’) to 119cm (47’). They’re a great option for consumers looking for a second TV or an affordable, future proof, digital Flat TV to replace their tube TV. The 3000 series models will be available during the second quarter of 2012 in Europe, Russia, the Middle East and in selected countries in Latin America1 and the Asia-Pacific1 region.

Clear pictures complemented by a vivid sound experience
Across the 3000 series, 16:9, high-quality, Full HD panels display brilliant and natural images with an extensive colour range and rich black detail. Thanks to the support of 100Hz2 Perfect Motion Rate, fast action scenes appear sharp and accurate on screen. The rich viewing experience is partnered with high-class sound equipment. Powerful amplifiers and speakers create a vibrant surround sound experience.

Broad selection of interfaces to connect with peripheral devices
Connectivity is an essential part of today’s digital lifestyle. Philips equipped its new 3000 series models with a broad selection of easy-to-use interfaces and ports including USB and HDMI. The USB port and the embedded on-screen content browser allow easy access to pictures, movies and music files stored on USB memory sticks. Three HDMI ports enable video and audio input without quality loss. Thanks to the support of Philips Easylink (HDMI-CEC), users can control most operations on connected DVD and Bluray players, set-top boxes or home theatre systems with a single remote control. 3000 series TVs also feature an integrated digital tuner for digital reception without a set-top box.
