Philips AmbiLux: The ultimate immersive viewing experience

The Philips AmbiLux 4K Ultra HD TV takes the immersive viewing experience of Ambilight to a superb new pinnacle with the introduction of Ambilight projection technology.

The classic Philips Ambilight system uses rows of LEDs mounted on the rear of the set to create a coloured halo of light on the wall behind the TV. Colours precisely match the on-screen content to create the impression of a larger image and to provide a more enjoyable viewing experience. The revolutionary Ambilight projection technology now frees the actual images from the constraints of the set by using nine tiny pico-projectors on the rear of the set. The Ambilight projection system can project images with superior motion, vivid colour and supreme contrast to create an immersive experience that truly breaks the boundaries of TV viewing.

Available in a 164cm (65“) screen size, the Philips AmbiLux features a slim frame and blade wire stand, all finished in premium materials to create a TV that looks as great as it performs.
