Philips delivers LED TVs with MediaConnect, NetTV, and Cinema 21:9

Philips is introducing a Cinema 21:9 LED HDTV to match the anamorphic 2.39:1 ratio seen in theaters.


LAS VEGAS--Philips has brought up us to speed with the new lines of HDTVs to hit in 2011. While we're glad to see Philips' 4000, 5000, and 6000 models all come with MediaConnect (a PC-to-TV screen technology) and NetTV (which offers a wide variety of video content access from providers like YouTube and Vudu), we were really interested to hear about Cinema 21:9.

First expected to be available stateside in the second half of 2011, Philips' Cinema 21:9 LED HDTV will feature a superwide 58-inch screen directly aimed at recreating the 2.39:1 anamorphic 3D experience found in theaters. There's no set price to talk about just yet, but we hope to have more information soon.
