Their heritage is impressive, and you only have to look at this video to get a taste for the pioneering technology that a Company like Philips is able to deliver.
In 1927, Philips began producing radios, and within five years it had sold one million sets and become the world’s largest manufacturer of radios and radio tubes. … Having been involved in experiments in television since 1925, Philips showcased its first television at the Annual Fair in Utrecht in 1938.
In 1990 they developed the first 16.9″ widescreen TV. In 1997 they delivered the first flat screen TV. and in 2007 the first TV with four sided Aurea LED TV.
Philips were the first brand to also deliver an Android powered TV.
Next year in Australia consumers will be able to buy a new range of Premium Philips TV’s including a new 65″ OLED model that will retail; for sub $5,995.
In Europe Philips sells the amazing Philips OLED+ 903 TV, which not only offers incredible OLED 4K tech, but also packs in a Bowers & Wilkins sound system that produces full and rich audio. At this stage it’s not known whether this TV will be launched in Australia.
The Philips range that has recently gone on sale at The Good Guys has everything you need for a budget experience update.
There’s so much clever tech that combines to make Philips’ latest TVs stand out from the crowd. The second-generation P5 image processor really makes the most of the Ultra HD resolution and high dynamic range (HDR) support.
