Third-gen Aurea gets active frame, Net TV

Philips on Thursday introduced the third generation of its Aurea LED edge-lit LCD HDTV, which sports a 40-inch panel with 1920x1080 resolution and a unique transparent Active Frame with Ambilight Spectra that includes 250 LEDs to light it up. The frame can match the color of the images on the screen itself.

The Aurea also has a Net TV feature, which allows users to connect to the web or home networks wirelessly and access YouTube or Philips' own content. It is also DLNA certified, meaning streaming videos from connected networked computers or network devices is possible.

Otherwise, the Aurea sports an 80,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 450cd/m2 brightness and an ultra fast 2ms response time. The panel has a 100Hz refresh rate for smooth motion during fast-moving scenes. Connections include five HDMI 1.3a inputs, S-video, a USB connection and digital coaxial audio input. Composite, VGA and component inputs are also accounted for.

Philips has not released shipping dates or pricing information for the Aurea.

    100Hz Refresh = Europe = No US Release

    Philips has basically abandoned the US market. Sad, really. Their European products are really quite nice.
