Philips launches new 7000 series Smart TV with SimulView 3D gaming skills

Philips has given its television line a revamp, brining the delights of Smart TV with internet surfing skills to its entire line for 2012. Top of the pile is the new Philips 7000 series HD TV introducing new dedicated features for 3D gaming, making it the choice for both film and TV buffs and video game fans.

The Philips 7000 series is a full HD 3D television that boasts a smooth 800MHz motion rate. In normal speak, it means that even the fastest action scenes will play without the unwanted blur you’ll find on lower-end TVs.

The Philips 7000 series also boasts the ability to convert 2D images to 3D. DLNA options and video streaming will also let you play content to other devices. Ports-wise you get a generous five HDMI inputs, three USB ports, ethernet and Wi-Fi capability. The latter two are essentials if you’re planning to use the Smart TV features.

The addition of SimulView is perhaps the Philips 7000 series most unique feature. Previously seen on Sony’s PlayStation 3D Display, SimulView lets two players wearing 3D specs to play a two-player game on one screen, with a separate image being shown to each player. Previously players would have to play in split screen mode, or hook up another television. This way the only extra investment is a pair of 3D glasses. Neat, eh!

However, pricing has yet to be revealed. And we’re sure the Philips 7000 series will cost a little more than Sony’s PlayStation 3D Display – a bargain 23-inch full HD TV with 3D talents, two pairs of Active Shutter 3D glasses and SimulView capability.
