Philip’s Perfect Pixel Engine works wonders on making the very best image possible from the input source it is given, it can upscale standard definition sources to full 1080p, reduce noise and enhance the colours and contrast of the output image shown. This technology also works on high definition sources by removing noise, compression artifacts and tweaking the contrast to get a simply amazing image on the screen. Black levels are also very impressive with the 8,000:1 contrast ratio, providing vivid colours and deep blacks.

Also included on the Philips 47PFL9632D is 100Hz processing, which turns a 25fps source into 100 frames per second, to output very sharp and smooth running images, which keep the high resolution during fast moving scenes with no judder. 24p is also fully supported which enables the 47PFL9632D to play back at 24fps exactly, which is the frame rate which all films are original recorded at, providing the very best in film watching.
