Philips Quits the TV Business

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

Once a worldwide leader in the television industry, Philips has thrown in the towel and is exiting the business. The company has been headed in that direction for some time. In 2008, they licensed their brand name to Funai for sales in North America. (Funai also makes televisions under some other familiar brands, including Emerson, Sylvania, and Symphonic.) Philips already has similar licensing agreements in effect for China and India.

The company has announced that the rest of its television business will be taken over by TPV, which already licenses the brand name for television sales in China. TPV is better known for its other brands, including AOC and Emerson.

Will this change have a big impact on the flat panel television market? Probably not. TPV is likely to continue to get many of its panels from the same suppliers, so it probably won’t change their sales in the short term. It is possible that TPV may transition to lower cost panels from other sources, but that will likely take some time and the current market share of the Philips brand is not so large that this would cause a sea change in the supply chain in any case.

Still, it’s another data point marking just how difficult the flat panel HDTV market has become. I won’t be surprised to read news of other well-known names getting out of the business before this year is over.

Philips’ new camcorder comes with 23x zoom and WiFi, but no price or release date

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Philips makes plenty of audio / video equipment for use when consuming our content, but until now, the company didn’t offer many options on the creating end. Well, Philips fanboys (they exist, don’t they?), take a gander at your next must-buy purchase — the ESee HD camcorder touts a 23x zoom, 1080p recording to an SD card, touchscreen viewfinder (of unknown size), WiFi for uploading vids (so as not to keep fans waiting for your next cinematic masterpiece), and an audio zoom feature. Yeah, a zoom for your audio. Details about pricing and availability are nowhere to be found, but not knowing makes you want it all the more, right?

[Thanks, Jakob]

Philips HDTV Comes with Solar Powered Remote

Monday, November 8th, 2010

This new remote control from Philips uses a solar panel to recharge itself from room light.

The new 42PFL6805 LCD HDTV from Philips boasts a “green” feature that you won’t find on the screen; the set’s remote control has solar panels on the back so that it can recharge using the light available in the room. In my experience, we get a year or two from a set of batteries in our remote control, but I can see how a battery or two a year from millions of TV sets can add up to a significant environmental issue.

The Philips remote is not the first to be solar-powered, but I believe it is the first to be included as a standard feature with a television set. So a tip of the hat to Philips for trying to make a practical contribution to helping the environment. Just don’t lose this remote in your sofa cushions or it will run out of power.

Blockbuster On Demand comes to select Philips Blu-ray players

Blockbuster On Demand comes to select Philips Blu-ray players

Movie lovers connected to Blockbuster from the days when renting involved begging mom for a ride to the store can take heart knowing the company is still expanding its On Demand service. Specifically the company has added two Philips Blu-ray players, the 5320 and 7320 (both of which scored Netflix back in January), to its short list of supported streaming hardware. Will this move turn the tide for the ailing company whose streaming claim to fame involves offering new releases on the same day as their Blu-ray and DVD release? Probably not, but at least it does show the brand isn’t ceding the platform fight to Netflix and the recently announced Hulu Plus just yet. Read the press release after the jump.
