  • The Philips DesignLine moves away from current TV product design language
  • The 2013 Philips DesignLine features a seamless, gradient black sheet of glass that hides the screen in off-mode
  • The new Philips DesignLine provides high-end picture quality features

Amsterdam, 14th March, 2013 -TP Vision announces its new Philips DesignLine TV characterized by an unconventional style to truly fit modern living spaces. The front of the TV is made from one seamless, square sheet of glass in gradient black. The new DesignLine TV will feature 117cm (46") and 140cm (55") screen sizes and will be available in the UK in June 2013 priced at £2000 and £2800.

DesignLine DNA of lightness and transparency

The new TV carries the Philips DesignLine hallmark of lightness and transparency; a TV without a neck, without a stand and without a visible frame, one seamless sheet of glass leaning against a wall. In standby mode, the TV's frameless glass front displays a smooth, translucent flow from black opaque to transparent, which becomes invisible when watching TV.

3-sided Ambilight supports the light, floating effect

Ambilight 3-sided XL adds perfectly to the floating appearance of the Philips DesignLine television. This unique Philips TV feature projects light that precisely matches the colour of the on-screen content on to the wall behind it.

Top-class picture quality

The Philips DesignLine series was designed with interior decoration in mind without compromising on picture quality. The front sheet of glass sits on top of a top-class LCD screen, which is powered by a high-performance dual-core processor with Perfect Pixel HD engine inside. The DesignLine features 1400 Hz Perfect Motion Rate for superb motion sharpness. Micro Dimming and Local Contrast improve the screen's splendid intrinsic contrast even further. 3D Max uses active 3D technology in combination with the high-speed display to create a great 3D viewing experience in Full HD resolution.  

Advanced user interaction and streaming capabilities

The Philips DesignLine series offers a high end TV experience: To facilitate Smart TV usability the sets come with a remote control with pointing capability and built-in keyboard. Its aluminium brushed finish perfectly complements the looks of the DesignLine TV. 

The TVs have Wi-Fi on board and support the Philips MyRemote app, Wi-Fi MiracastTM and SimplyShare to allow wireless streaming content to and from notebooks, smartphones and tablets. The Philips Designline TVs are also ready to be automatically upgraded for MultiRoom[1] viewing. This application allows consumers to stream broadcast content from the master TV to a secondary TV anywhere at home.
