Philips 4K televisions accompanied by HDTV with four-sided Ambilight system

Electronics producer Philips and TP Vision has entered the 4K-resolution market by revealing two new Ultra HD televisions at IFA, alongside an Ambilight-focused device. The 3840x2160-resolution 65-inch and 84-inch screens in the 9000 range of televisions are accompanied by a third display with a four-sided Ambilight configuration called Elevation.

The two 4K televisions use the company's Ultra Pixel HD engine, uses its own Ultra Resolution upscaling system, and is said to have a 900Hz "Perfect Motion Rate." Sound comes from "carefully designed tweeters and subwoofers," while a three-sided Ambilight setup projecting lights onto nearby walls, and its Cloud TV services over Wi-Fi offer smart TV functions via the full keyboard built into the remote control. Support for Miracast and multi-room content pushing is also included.

The Elevation is a Full HD LED television measuring 60 inches, which has its four-sided Ambilight system as its main feature. Ambilight allows for the same color and intensity of light at the edges of the screen to be emitted by rows of LEDs around the edge of the screen, which in theory complements the on-screen action and gives a more-immersive experience. Just like the 9000-series sets, the Elevation offers a 900Hz refresh rate, smart TV functionality, Skype, Miracast support, and a keyboard remote control with pointer.

The 65-inch 9000 series Ultra HD television is on sale in Europe and Russia for 4,999 euros ($6,600) and 14,999 euros ($19,770) respectively. The Elevation is priced at $3,900.
