Note: This Philips TV has been set at the factory to look best in bright
store environments which use fluorescent lighting. As your home will
likely not be as well lit as a store, we recommend that you cycle

reduction) without motion compensation.
x • Pixel Plus 2 = creates near High Definition performance
inside the Tv on the basis of a regular input signal.
The number of lines are increased and the number of pixels
on a line are doubled in combination with Digital Natural
Motion. As such Pixel Plus 2 enhances both regular broadcast
signals and DVD or Digital Tv input towards unparalleled
sharpness and depth, near High Definition and natural detail.
Digital options with NTSC signals
• Progressive Scan = line doubling eliminates line flicker.
• Movie Plus
• Pixel Plus 2
Notes:
- Pixel Plus 2 is not active when Multipip, Teletext (except when subtitling
