Unique to Philips, Ambilight projects a soft light glow onto the walls around your TV set which automatically changes to match the colours and brightness of the picture. Ambilight improves perceived contrast, colour and detail, giving you the sensation that you are looking at a wider picture. It has also been proven to reduce eye-strain, by providing a more relaxing viewing experience.
Two sheets of polarised transparent material, one with a special polymer coating that holds liquid crystals, are adhered together. Electric current is passed through individual crystals, which interpret the information from the broadcast signal to allow or disallow light through them to create an image.
Plasma is a flat, lightweight surface covered with millions of tiny glass bubbles. Each bubble contains a gas-like substance, the plasma, and has a phosphor coating. Think of the bubbles as the pixels. Now, think of each pixel-bubble as having three sub-pixels – one red, one green and one blue. When it is time to display an image signal (RGB or video), a digitally controlled electric current flows through the flat screen, causing the plasma inside designated bubbles to give off ultraviolet rays. This light in turn causes the phosphor coatings to glow the appropriate colour.
