  • What is DVB-T?

    • DVB-T stands for Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial and it is the standard for broadcasting a TV signal via the air. This system transmits digital audio and video signals in the MPEG format.

      Your TV has an integrated DVB-T tuner that enables you to view free digital channels from the service provider. In order to view the encrypted/scrambled channels, you need either a Conditional Access Module (CAM or CI-Module) with a smart card or a Set top box depending on the implementation by the service provider.

      • Consult your dealer or service provider about the possibilities for receiving encrypted/scrambled digital channels.
      • If you wish to buy a CAM or to know which CAM is available for your TV, you may contact the dealer or service provider.
      • Philips does not supply CAMs as an accessory.

  • What is HDMI?

    • HDMI is the abbreviation of High-Definition Multimedia Interface.

      HDMI connects digital audio/video sources such as a set-top box, an HD DVD disc player, a Blu-ray Disc player, a PC, video game console, 
      or an AV receiver to a compatible digital audio device and/or video monitor such as a digital television (DTV).

      HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB (Red, Green, Blue) connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image.

      The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device.

      The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI (Digital Video Interface) sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
