Philips exposes Aurea TV
After using the media for publicity through a teaser campaign, Philips has finally unveiled the Aurea, its latest Ambilight television. Launching as a 42-inch model, the key change is a new, LED-based lighting system, fit inside a new housing with hidden speakers.
In terms of actual performance, the Aurea is 1080p-capable, and hosts three HDMI inputs. It can purportedly display four trillion colors, and motion response should be enhanced by a 3ms response time and a 100Hz refresh rate. The set will first go on sale in Europe starting next month. No prices have been mentioned.
