Philips Eco FlatTV wins 'Best in Show' at CES

Philips' Eco FlatTV has won the overall "Best in Show" award in CNET's "Best of CES" awards at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The innovative Eco TV (42PFL5603D) is a high-definition LCD television that delivers high picture quality while minimising power consumption.

To qualify for "Best in Show," the Eco TV won the television category for the "Best of CES" awards.

The Eco TV is designed with several power saving features such as a proprietary dimming technology that is designed to lower the LCD panel backlight to reduce power consumption without compromising the picture quality. A built-in light sensor automatically measures the viewing room's ambient lighting and adjusts the television's backlight for power efficiency.

As part of the Philips Design Collection, the Eco TV delivers precision picture quality and definitive style while incorporating lead-free components and flame retardant materials, which are safe to the environment. Furthermore, the packaging box and user manuals are all made of recycled materials.

"Philips has long been an industry leader in sustainability and it is an honour to be recognised for that commitment by an organisation such as CNET," said Paul Zeven, CEO, Philips Electronics, North America. "The Eco TV sets the standard in design and efficiency, giving consumers unmatched picture quality without the hefty power bills."
