Consumer review (

60PP9601+DVDO iScan is the best


Very high resolution, HD-ready, 4:3 with 16:9 squeeze

Mediocre line doubler, weak light output, no discrete input codes(')

60PP9601+DVDO iScan is the best


I thoroughly researched this beast, and compared it side-by-side in my home with a Sony 53HS10. The 53HS10 lost and got sent back. I love the 60PP9601, but to shine it really needs a DVDO iScan Pro (or other top notch line doubler with 3:2 pulldown.)...

Product Specifications

Philips's 60" High Definition Rear Projection Television features a 1500x1080 interlaced image (1, 620, 000 pixels) that is achieved by combining special display tubes, lenses, and a fine-pitched screen for superior image performance. Philips has maximized the potential of rear projection display optics to achieve nothing short of the finest picture possible. Its Three-Line Digital Comb Filter is an improved chroma-luminance separation over standard two-line glass comb filters for a difference you can really see. Offering vertical edge enhancement and virtually no "dot crawl, " it easily supports the demands of DVD video players, Web browsers, and other advanced, high-resolution video media (through A/V inputs). Philips PixelMax System allows high definition broadcasting, DVD media and other digital advances that enable amazing improvements in the resolution and quality of television inputs and demand corresponding advances in display technology. The Philips PixelMax system answers this demand with cutting edge optical technology, including improved CRTs, three element lenses, first surface mirrors, fine-pitched lenticular screens, and line doubling circuitry. Philips high performance CRTs now feature an enhanced green phosphor, which creates deeper, more natural colors and reduces image persistence and flicker. Three element lenses work in concert with each CRT to improve focus and correct optical errors, removing distortion and creating a crisp picture all the way to the edge of the screen. The first-surface mirror helps eliminate light refraction, ensuring that more of the television picture is reflected to where it should be - the viewing screen. The newly designed lenticular screen has nearly one-third finer pitch (.515mm) than traditional screens (.72mm). Finer pitch improves light diffusion and reduces ambient light interference, resulting in a super wide 160-degree viewing angle and greatly improved image contrast. The Genesis line doubler and video processor converts standard-definition interlaced signals into smooth progressive output, ensuring a clean and stable image. The chip also transforms video input into the viewing format you choose, whether widescreen or conventional 4: 3. The television picture we see is only as sharp and brilliant as the optics that create it, no matter how sophisticated the input source. With 1500 lines of horizontal resolution, Philips' cutting edge PixelMax technology takes high definition to the max - a truly fantastic 1, 620, 000 pixels. Its Home Cinema Universal Remote Control controls all features and functions of this television with direct menu access, plus activates Auto Window PIP with Action Freeze, Position and Swap, and exclusive AutoSound and AutoPicture options. This remote also controls all important operating features and functions of virtually all infrared VCRs, DVDs, Digital Broadcast Systems, and on/off and channel up/down on most cable converter/decoders. And on top of that it has Automatic Phosphor Aging Compensation - APAC. Non-moving images can be bad for a television screen. If a video image remains stationary, it can eventually leave a permanent after-image on the screen. The elevated operating temperature of projection tubes and the stationary black bars, which outline standard 4: 3 programming on a widescreen TV compound this problem. Now, Philips has found a way to combat this problem through APAC technology. Periodically, APAC automatically shifts your television picture in very small increments, but increments large enough to minimize permanent image retention. Think of it as a screen saver for your TV.
