Philips's new 'DesignLine' provides high-end picture quality features and boasts a frameless front that hides the screen in off-mode.

TVs have evolved from bulky boxes to streamlined, thin sets that hang from the wall. Now this new TV announced by Philips takes design to a new level. ‘DesignLine‘ is made of one seamless sheet of gradient black glass, and it leans against the wall without a stand or visible frame.

The new TV is light and transparent, with its frameless glass front displaying a smooth flow from black opaque to transparent in standby mode, which becomes invisible when watching TV. ‘Ambilight 3-sided XL' adds to the floating appearance of the Philips DesignLine TV, projecting light that precisely matches the color of the on-screen content onto the wall behind.
