Philips 3D Cinema 21:9

The first Philips Cinema 21:9 was unveiled in 2009 as the first flat panel TV to utilize the extra wide 21:9 movie format that cinemas use as well as some projectors. Here comes the successor called 3D Cinema 21:9.

The new 3D Cinema 21:9 supports 3D and builds on the philosophy to provide the “ultimate cinematic viewing experience”, according to Philips. In this quest 3D is an important factor.

Philips will incorporate the same 3D technology that most other flat panel TV manufacturers are using. The 3D system is called frame sequential and provides different pictures for the left and right eye in Full HD resolution. The 3D effect requires active 3D shutter glasses.

The new Cinema model will be a part of the 9000 series. This means that it will incorporate a LED backlight together with LED Pro local dimming. The TV will also feature a 400 Hz circuit to improve motion.
