Philips AmbiLux

One of the coolest bits of TV tech we saw in Berlin was Philips AmbiLux. It's the evolution of the firm's AmbiLight. Instead of LEDs on the back, AmbiLux is made up of nine pico-projectors which, erm, project a mirror image of what's on the screen on the wall behind to the sides and the top.

It creates a more immersive experience and will even make objects continue in light form across the wall when they leave the edge of the TV. The AmbiLux will be available on the 65in 8900 series TV to start with which boasts a 4K resolution Android.

Panasonic CZ950

The CZ950 is Panasonic's first OLED TV and it's also the only 4K OLED TV to be THX certified. Not only that, it also supports HDR which we're seeing most manufacturers add to their range of sets.

It unusually has a 360 design in which Panasonic has an upholstered rear cover. It's covered in Alcantara which has a sort of suede finish. This bit we're not so keen on but if you put your TV against the wall like a normal person you can just forget about it.

Around €10,000

Hisense K321

This TV doesn't come with a fancy rear cover, or HDR, or OLED but it still deserves a special mention. The reason is that this is one of the most affordable 4Ks sets we've ever seen and will retail at under £500.

It's the 40in model which will be this cheap but you'll also be able to choose 50in if you don't mind spending a bit more. The K321 includes Smart TV features including apps such as Netflix.

£449

The firm has also added HDR support which as already mentioned is becoming commonplace and LG's TVs feature webOS 2.0.

Sony X90C/X91C

You might recognise Sony's range but this year the firm has added HDR compatibility much like rival TV manufacturers. The great this is that you don't need to buy a new set if you already have one, the X90C, X91C and two other sets will be updated over the air at some point this year.

Sony says its begun creating partnerships to bring users HDR content including Amazon which was the first to bring HDR content to Prime members via its original series, Mozart in the Jungle.

£1,799 (X90C)
