Philips unveils super wide 21:9 58" 3D TV
Royal Philips Electronics announced its new 3D Cinema 21:9 Platinum Series HDTV. According to the statement, the Cinema 21:9 Platinum Series (3.999 €) boasts a 58″ screen shaped in a 21:9 aspect ratio, so movies in 2.39:1 format completely fill the screen.
Delivering on its promise of simplicity, Cinema 21:9 Platinum Series is the world’s first TV to deliver a true to life 3D viewing experience just like at the cinema. It boasts a 58” screen that is shaped in the 21:9 aspect ratio, so movies in the 2.39:1 format completely fill the screen.
Traditional LCD televisions compromise on this experience by distorting the picture to fill the screen – losing the full scope of the original shot – or by displaying the picture in letterbox format with black bars at the top and bottom.
Cinema 21:9 Platinum Series is equally accomplished with 2D and the more common 16:9 material from sources including broadcast television, gaming and DVDs, which are easily resized to fill the screen thanks to best-in-class auto formatting technology.
It will be available in Europe and Brazil in September with other countries following later this year. Read the details here in Hugh's News.
