Philips 55PDL8908S/12 LED HDTV

The revolutionary floating glass design of the Philips DesignLine defies description. Or does it? Words like eye-catching, innovative and superior performance come to mind. As does breathtaking...

This patented Philips technology makes your screen seem much wider—and your viewing experience more immersive— by projecting an extra wide glow from three sides of the TV screen onto the surrounding wall. The colour automatically adjusts to match the TV picture. Thanks to a wall-adaptive function, the colour of the light is perfectly aligned with the TV picture, regardless of the wall colour. You can customise the experience using various settings to suit your viewing preference.

Designed to deliver our most advanced flicker-free pictures with unrivalled sharpness and clarity. Each pixel that composes the picture is enhanced to better match the surrounding pixels. The result is a unique combination of sharpness, natural detail, vivid colours, superior contrast and smooth natural motion.

For picture movement that looks precise, smooth and natural, Philips created PMR—our standard for measuring moving image sharpness. Perfect Motion Rate is the combined result of our unique video processing, number of frames per second and refresh rate of each frame, perfection in dimming capabilities, and backlighting technology. A higher PMR number contributes to higher contrast and better motion clarity—which means a superior image for you.

Integrated Wi-Fi on your Philips Smart TV makes connecting to your home network quick and easy, allowing you to access a world of content or share wirelessly at home.

Explore the boundaries that lie beyond traditional TV. Rent and stream films, videos, games and more, directly onto your TV from online video stores. Watch catch-up TV from your favourite channels and enjoy a rich selection of online apps with Smart TV. Connect to family and friends with Skype™ or social networking. Or... just browse the Internet!

Our totally intuitive remote control has all the usual perks like cursor keys, volume control and shortcut buttons. And, for something extra, simply click and hold the OK key for easy navigation. The pointer operates as a mouse allowing you to point, click and scroll easily onscreen. Flip this remote over and there\'s a full keyboard for easy text entry on the other side! Best of all, our intelligent remote has gyroscopic sensors, so it knows up from down—which means you can text without worrying about changing channels.

Control your TV without a remote control using one easy app. Transform your iPad or smartphone into a universal remote with all the options of your original remote plus extra features like text entry. The SimplyShare function beams content onto your TV. Push digital broadcast TV onto your devices using the Wi-Fi smart screen.

Watch what you want, where you want, when you want. Mirror the content on your devices and view it on the big screen. Share photos from your smartphone, laptop screen and more. Connections are easy to set up and the technology works across multiple devices.

Our innovative sheet of glass panel redefines how you look at your TV—and how your TV looks. The gradient screen print flowing across the glass surface transitions from dark to light—accentuating the TV\'s floating effect. Lean it against a wall in a loft or amongst antiques in a farmhouse, or hang it with modern art in a gallery—it\'s always at home wherever it lives.

Whether you choose to lean, hang or stand your new TV against your wall—there is one mounting solution to meet your needs. For interiors with hard floors, we\'ve created the edge protector as a buffer between your floor and the glass panel. Not handy? Philips\' ingenious Simply Straight wall mounting solution means you don\'t have to agonise over accurate measurements when hanging your TV—it intuitively finds the level every time.

Our single cable sleeve gathers all your cables into one neat bundle. The compact cable sleeve is designed to stay out of sight—contoured behind the TV\'s sight lines to limit visual clutter.
