Philips has announced a new cheaper TV in the extra wide 21:9 format called Cinema 21:9 Gold. This TV will supplement the Cinema 21:9 Platinum released in 2010. The new Gold edition comes in 50 inches while the Platinum comes in larger formats.

The new flagship model is the 9000 range (called 9606K & 9706K) that comes with the most advanced picture technology from Philips. Philips is still using the Perfect Pixel HD engine in 2011 and the Natural Motion picture circuits have been integrated as well to create smooth motion.

In 2011 Philips plans to release two different 3D technologies called 3D Max and Easy 3D. The first is an active 3D technology with shutter glasses and the latter is a passive 3D technology that utilizes the cheaper polarized 3D glasses. LG also introduced passive 3D in their Cinema 3D range recently.

By giving uses the choice Philips believes that they have a more versatile 3D product line-up in 2011. As a new feature Philips has also integrated a two player full-screen function. Basically this means that you can play multiplayer games from a PlayStation 3 in full screen (and not in split-screen or top/bottom split-screen). Player 1 will only see his picture in full screen and player two will see an entirely different picture in full screen – on the same TV. Obviously 3D glasses are required and this is only possible in 2D.

Philips is also extending their Smart TV features and in 2011 they will focus on four different areas; SimplyShare, Control, Net TV and Program. Basically this means that you have access to a range of on-demand services and that you can add new Apps later on. The Smart TV system also incorporates DLNA and you can control everything with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

Philips is also introducing USB recording in their 2011 TVs. If you connect an external USB stick or a USB hard drive you can record TV shows onto this device or you can pause live TV streams and return to the show an hour later without having to miss anything.

Ambilight is naturally still a key factor for Philips and most mid-range and high-end models come with Ambilight backlighting that adapts to the pictures on the screen.
