Philips Ambilight LED Sets

Philips has provided an early glance at three new LCDs in its Ambilight series that showcase the company's expertise with lighting. The 42-inch 42PFL9832D, 47-inch 47PFL9732D, and 52-inch 52PFL7432D all share the company's trademark Ambilight system for dynamically changing colored lights behind the display to fit the mood in supporting movies. More important, the company notes, is a drastic change in the LCD panel. Each of the 1080p displays now refreshes at 120Hz for twice the responsiveness in action movies and games. LED backlighting is also new and cuts down power while also boosting color accuracy.

Aside from size, sound is the primary differece between each set, according to Philips. Though the 47-inch and 52-inch sets have standard two-channel embedded speakers, the 42-inch model is considered the Dutch firm's lone Full Surround entry and will generate a simulated effect without consuming the extra cost and space needed for genuine surround speakers. Shipments are slated to begin for American stores during the summer at prices of $2,799 (47 inches), $2,999 (42 inches), and $3,599 (52 inches). [via Electronic House]
