TP Vision has announced an upgrade to its Ambilight TV backlighting system designed to work alongside (well, underneath) Philips' hue color-change LED light bulbs, effectively allowing Ambilight effects to fill the entire room. The new system, dubbed Ambilight 4-sided XL, is included on Philips' new 60-in Elevation TV.

Hands-on with uWand, the intuitive TV remote from Philips

By - September 5, 2012 10 Pictures
Technology for televisions is advancing all the time, with TVs getting bigger, offering glasses-free 3D, and even being powered by bicycle these days. Sadly, the remote controls for operating TVs haven't advanced much past the "more features means more buttons" design that's been in place for years, forcing TV viewers to stare blankly at a monolithic array of controls just to find the one that changes the channel. Philips is looking to change that though with it's uWand remote, which lets users control Smart TVs with just three buttons and a few simple gestures. Read More
