Philips TP Vision has unveiled a new range of 4k TVs utilising high brightness OLED screen technology, and advanced Dolby Atmos audio from Bowers & Wilkins. The 55-, 65- and 77-inch OLED+ sets use the latest OLED EX panel to deliver up to 1300 nits peak light output.

Also announced by TP Vision is a new 55-inch Philips Mini LED screen.

The big gun in the brand’s incoming lineup is the OLED937. The flagship set, which recently won Home Theatre TV at the 2022 EISA Awards, is built around an improved version of Philips AI Dual Engine processor, and  uses the latest OLED EX panel with a brightness boosting heatsink.

The 2022 version of the P5 AI Intelligent Dual Engine picture processing also includes an Advanced HDR feature that uniquely optimises HDR performance by tone mapping content frame by frame, rather than averaging values scene by scene.

Bowers & Wilkins has upgraded its integrated Dolby Atmos sound system on this model with left and right side-firing drivers for a 5.1.2 specification. Power output is rated at 95W.

The OLED+937 is also one of the first screens to feature Next Generation Ambilight technology which rather than divide the rear mounted LEDs into groups, now allows the individual control of each LED. The result is a wider range of colours which more precisely match the on-screen image. The OLED937 has a four-sided Ambilight configuration.

The OLED+937 hopes to attract gamers with G-sync and Free-sync Premium VRR compatibility, and an innovative new VRR Shadow Enhancer designed to optimise gaming performance at higher refresh rates. The screen supports 4k 120fps gameplay on two of its four HDMI inputs. The OLED937 is expected to hit retail outlets mid-October.

Supporting the OLED937 in Philips 2022 range is the OLED907, available in 55- and 65-inch screen sizes. An upgrade on the OLED903, it has a Bowers & Wilkins sound system integrated within the overall chassis of the set. The 3.1 80W sound system has six front mounted drivers firing directly at the listener in a dedicated Left, Centre, Right (LCR) arrangement. Bass comes from a large, rear mounted subwoofer, supported by four passive radiators.

It sports 6th Gen P5 AI processing, and an OLED EX panel with integrated heatsink. Philips claims a 1300 nit peak HDR output.

The OLED+907 also has Philips TV’s Game bar interface and is Freesync Premium and G-Sync compatible, while offering 4K 120VRR playback in full resolution via its Monitor mode. Its Next Gen Ambilight system is three-sided.

Representing Mini LED is the 55-inch PML9507. Behind the 120Hz VA panel is a 6th Gen P5 AI processor. Peak HDR output is said to be 1500nits.

The 2.1 audio system is rated at 70W, with two pairs of down-firing tweeters, and two mid-range drivers plus a separate, triple ring subwoofer and twin passive radiators mounted in their own enclosure in the rear of the set.

The PML9507 can also be used as a dedicated centre channel in an expanded sound system using Play-Fi connected satellite speakers, like the new Philips Fidelio FS1.

The PML9507 features Philips TV’s game interface, Freesync Premium compatibility and 4K 120VRR playback in full resolution via the TV’s monitor mode. The model utilises a four-sided version of the new Ambilight Next Generation system.
