Philips claims that its latest image enhancing technology, called Perfect Pixel HD, is “the most powerful picture processing system yet seen on a flatpanel TV.” The technology, which has been designed to work with HD sources, combines a suite of proprietary picture quality improvement technologies; these include 100Hz ClearLCD, Digital Natural Motion, Horizontal and Vertical Luminance Transient Improvement and Colour Booster with 14-bit processing.
The Perfect Pixel HD Engine is built around a 10-bit digital processor said to be capable of handling 248 million pixels per second. As part of the image enhancement process it changes the luminance value of each individual pixel to better match the surrounding pixels in a given signal, “resulting in a much sharper and more natural picture.”
The brand’s 100Hz ClearLCD technology aims to address a common limitation Of LCD, motion artifacts and blurring in fast-moving pictures. An Overdrive Control system is used to reduce the physical response time of the liquid crystals by increasing the voltage across the panel, allowing 100Hz ClearLCD to cut the overall response time to approximately three milliseconds. Contrast has been improved by use of an intelligent dimming backlight. The result is a Full HD 1080p display, featuring 6.2 million pixels.
Pixel Perfect HD is available on Philips 9632D range of sets (pictured), which also feature two-sided Ambilight. Sizes range from 32-57-inches.
