What are the Advantages of Phillips HDTV

Mar 1, 2008
Phillips Consumer Products has been manufacturing quality electronics merchandise for years and the entry of Phillips HDTV equipment should have been no surprise in an industry it has dominated for years. From audio and video equipment to televisions and video players, Phillips HDTV sets are part of the company's products designed to entertain the consuming public. Although when looking to buy any high definition television, care must be exercised as not all televisions, despite appearances, may not be capable of displaying high definition images.

There may be some confusion in the high definition television market, as many people mistakenly believe that all flat panel televisions are capable of high definition display. The reality is there are a number of flat screen televisions that only display analog signals. It should also be noted that not all liquid crystal display televisions with an aspect ratio of 13:9 are high definition displays but all Phillips HDTV equipment is marked as high definition.

Even after the purchase of a Phillips HDTV television, the user will need to have a high definition signal to experience the superior images available. A common misconception is that as long as a cable or satellite signal is being used for the input, it will be in high definition. The reality is the set top box is probably still sending an analog signal to the television and needs to be changed for high def resolution.

Alternate Signal Source Not Necessarily Required

With the appropriate antenna and converter a Phillips HDTV unit can also receive through the air broadcasts from local stations. Typically available in local markets from broadcasters within 60 to 80 miles, depending on the terrain, the picture on a Phillips HDTV from a local broadcast will be every bit as clear as those from a cable or satellite provider.

The biggest advantage, in addition to the savings is that the signal will not be lost in bad weather or be probe to interference from spurious electronic signals. Typically, analog signals can be interrupted by outside interference resulting in a snowy picture, which will not be a problem with a Phillips HDTV with a high definition local channel.

With sizes ranging from 26-inches to over 50-inches, there is probably a Phillips HDTV set that will fit into many homes. They can be used in the main television viewing room or as a second set in the bedroom or den and they all come with the years of experience and quality that Phillips has become known to provide.
