Philips will support both Dolby Vision and HDR10+, its open standard rival, on two new OLED TVs this year. Both the 804 and 854 models will offer multi-HDR compatibility, along with HLG, when they launch.

The 804 and 854 share the same panel and spec, but have different stands designs. The news follows confirmation from Panasonic that its next OLED flagship, the GZ2000, will also support both dynamic HDR variants.

At a European launch event in Amsterdam, Philips also confirmed another screen collaboration with Bowers & Wilkins, the 8804 LED LCD, and says it will aggressively market its mid-range 7 Performance Series offering, the 7304. To be dubbed The One, the 7304 will be available in a variety of screen sizes, starting at 43-inches.

The Philips 7304 will have both Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos audio on board, and boasts a clean, silver grey minimalist design.

Naturally, all these newly announced models also sport Philips Ambilight mood lighting technology.

Speaking at the opening plenary, top IHS market analysts Paul Gray told delegates that the dramatically growing market share of UHD screens would lead to free to air 4k linear TV channels within two years. “Not on terrestrial, he qualified, “but delivered via satellite.”

In two years there will no longer be any large HD screens available, he noted. “The panel industry has spoken.
Mr Gray said the most popular screen size for UHD is now 55-inches.8k, however, remains some way off.
