    What is Ambilight?

    In association with Philips

    Whether you’re gaming, watching your favourite programmes or listening to music, Philips Ambilight is designed to create an immersive entertainment experience with intelligent LEDs. Combine this with the exciting additional features like superior sound and picture quality to discover how TVs can transform home entertainment.

    What is Ambilight?

    Well, it’s kind of like having a lava lamp hidden behind your TV. The lighting technology changes colour to match what’s on screen, extending the picture beyond your TV. Dozens of smart LEDs in mood-changing colours shine onto your wall to draw you into whatever you're watching. You can even have the Ambilight feature on while the TV is in standby, to set the mood whenever you like.

    It's great for...


    Game designers are experts at creating lifelike visuals, so choosing lighting technology that works alongside your favourite game can make you feel like you’re really there. Whether you’re stealthily creeping through a jungle, or racing around a packed-out track, Ambilight helps you get the full effect when you play.


    Bring sound to life with light that dances across your walls. Changing colours with the rhythm of the music, Ambilight will turn your home into a dancefloor. So, now you can feel like you’re in your very own music video while you’re mopping the floors or cooking dinner.


    Musicals, thrillers, rom-coms, whatever you love, stretch the story beyond the screen. The clever hue will make the action look bigger, every moment will feel closer, and music gets a light show. Who needs the cinema when you can be at the heart of the action from home?


    Whoever you support, you’re sure to be a fan of Ambilight. The lights frame the action - whether it’s on a pitch, a court, or a track – making the picture feel even bigger, so you feel closer to those momentous wins.


    It’s no secret that lighting has the power to set the mood in a space. That’s why the Philips Ambilight is great for a house-proud host. The gentle light can be used when the TV is off to give any room a warm feel and a contemporary look.

    Also look out for...

    4K Ultra HD display

    This feature is all about picture quality. Or to be precise, eight million pixels worth of crystal-clear picture quality. By cramming in 4x more pixels than standard HD models, 4K Ultra HD displays offer superior levels of detail for noticeably improved clarity.

    P5 Perfect Picture Engine

    Designed to bring a realistic cinema experience to the front room, P5 Perfect Picture Engine works in the background to create deep, crisp contrast and vibrant natural colours. It also makes sure the motion in every scene is silky-smooth, so whether you’re watching an action movie or a fast-paced sporting match, you’ll be pulled into the centre of the action.

    Dolby Atmos & Dolby Vision

    Dolby Atmos recreates sound in 3D, so you can hear it from all directions, while Dolby Vision increases the contrast between light and dark, to create a vivid picture that’s bursting with colour. So if it’s the cinema experience at home you’re after, look out for this.

    Smart apps powered by Android

    Able to connect to the internet, a Smart TV gives you access to all those catch-up services and apps available on Android, like YouTube, Netflix and BBC iPlayer. With endless options and your favourites on demand, you’ll never be stuck for something to watch.
