The Philips AmbiLux System

AmbiLux TV

Experience the ultimate immersive viewing experience, with the launch of the Philips AmbiLux system, which frees images from the boundaries of the television set, extending light and motion as never before.

AmbiLux represents a new pinnacle for the existing award-winning Philips Ambilight system, which uses LEDs on the rear of the TV to create a coloured halo of light on the wall behind. The continually changing colours precisely match the on-screen content to create the impression of a much larger image and to provide a more enjoyable viewing experience.

The new AmbiLux technology takes this concept to a whole new level, with actual on-screen images now also displayed – and extended up to three meters – behind the set by using nine pico-projectors, each precisely positioned on the rear of the AmbiLux TV. The Philips AmbiLux 4K Ultra HD TV also has four times the resolution of a conventional Full HD TV with the unique Ultra Resolution upscaling technology ensuring that all images, regardless of the original source, are reproduced in stunning 4K resolution on your screen.

The AmbiLux is beautifully engineered to maintain a razor-slim, elegant form. European design and authentic, premium materials ensure a high quality finish with the ultra-narrow bezel achieving a seamless connection to the Ambilight halo, and the polished chrome Bladewire stand creating a light, floating appearance. The sophisticated design allows the AmbiLux to effortlessly enhance even the most stylish of interiors.
