Amsterdam, September 4th, 2014 - Today, TP Vision presented the first-ever curved Philips TV. The 139cm (55'') Philips 8900 4k Ultra HD TV is powered by AndroidTM and certified by GoogleTM . This provides easy access to Google Play Store with its wealth of apps, games and content. In addition, massive processing power together with an AndroidTM operating system allows for the most fluent user interface. The curved Philips 8900 features 3-sided Ambilight and will be available during the third quarter in Europe and Russia.

High-class picture quality

The Philips 8900 has 1000 Hz Perfect Motion Rate Ultra andUltra Resolution to ensure superb motion sharpness. It also features Local Contrast, to further improve the screens' excellent contrast, and Micro Dimming Pro, a sensor-based technology that dynamically adapts the LED backlight depending on the ambient room light. The latter delivers impressive contrast through deep blacks and bright whites.

Bended ‘ribbon stand' harmoniously contrasts with curved display

The Philips 8900 TV has a 139cm (55'') curved display that stands on a new ‘ribbon stand'. This creates a bold look, which is enhanced by the high-quality polished chrome finish.

3-sided Ambilight for an even more immersive viewing experience

3-sided Ambilight complements the outstanding appearance of the 8900 series. Ambilight is now capable of following really fast moving scenes in action and sports games.

Certified Android UHD TV to enhance the Smart TV experience

All Philips 4K Ultra HD TVs powered by AndroidTM - including the Philips 8900 - are certified by Google. This means that they have access to all apps, services, and content in the Google Play Store that are suitable for TVs. This app and service offering is provided on top of the existing Philips Smart TV portfolio.

Smart interaction through pointing, typing, voiceand gesturing

Philips 8900's remote control makes navigating the large screen easy. It lets users choose the way they want to communicate with their Philips TV. The pointer operates like a mouse allowing pointing, clicking, and scrolling through on screen menus. On the remote's rear is a full keyboard for easy text entry. The remote control also enables users to control the TV via voice commands to facilitate search for content. Last but not least, the integrated camera allows gestures to be detected and they are then translated into pre-defined commands.
