Philips announces Cinema 21:9

January 21, 2009

New Multi-room Service For Multiple HD Devices

Philips is planning to launch its widest ever HDTV this year in the UK, in its latest effort to bring an authentic cinema experience into the home.

The 56-inch Cinema 21:9, which refers to the aspect ratio, will deliver images in the way they were intended by the movie makers.

On conventional HDTVs, which usually have a ratio of 16:9, the images are squashed, and those annoying black bars sit above and below the picture.

To further enhance the viewing experience, he 21:9 Cinema LCD TV will feature Philips’ Ambilight Spectra technology, but other details are sketchy at the moment.

A web site is expected this month, so further details, including price, should be available soon.
