Philips Announces Full Surround Ambilight LCD
The 42-inch high-def 42PFL9832D takes Ambilight to the next level -- adding a ring of light to enhance your home theater experience.
January 22, 2007 by Rachel Cericola

It’s never too early to start planning where you’ll be watching next year’s big game—and more importantly, what you’ll be watching it on.

The new Philips 42-inch high-def FlatTV features the company’s award-winning Ambilight Full Surround technology, and 1080p resolution. The Full Surround Ambilight FlatTV features illumination from all four sides of the screen, onto a built-in canvas allowing the display to be placed on a stand or hung on the darkest wall.

Philips also says that they’ve conducted research to proof that Ambilight is easier on your peepers, which is good on a day where your eyes want to be glued to every second of the action.

Other features include a 170-degree viewing angle, a 120Hz refresh rate, two HDMI ports, a USB port, a memory card reader and picture-in-picture features.

The 42PFL9832D was also recently honored with a 2007 CEA Innovations award.
