Philips Cinema to the US
Philips bringing 3D Cinema 21:9 & wireless HDMI to USA

11 Jan 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

Philips has a few products available in the US but none of their high-end TVs. This is poised to change in the second half of 2011 where Philips is launching their impressive 3D Cinema 21:9 TV and a Blu-ray player with wireless HDMI.

Philips introduced their new 3D Cinema 21:9 Platinum TV in 2010 and it is available now in Europe. At CES 2011 Philips told the press that the extra wide 21:9 TV will be available in the US in the second half of 2011.

Philips 3D Cinema 21:9 Platinum has a 21:9 format and has been optimized for movie viewing. Most cinema movies today are created in a format wider than 16:9 and therefore you need either a projector or a 21:9 TV to eliminate the black bars at the top and the bottom of the screen.

Specifications
  • 58" in 21:9 format
  • LED Pro and Bright Pro
  • 400/480 Hz Clear LCD
  • Full HD 3D
  • Ambilight Spectre 3
  • NET TV, DLNA and USB

    At CES Philips also mentioned that they are planning to introduce a Blu-ray player with wireless HDMI. No further details are available at the moment.

    Philips 3D Cinema 21:9 is available in a 58 inch version and we expect the same model to debut in the US. No words on pricing yet. The EU price is 3999 Euro.
