Phillips brings 3rd dimension viewing to 21:9 uber wide TV.

If you’re like most consumers balancing on the edge of merely understanding technology, specifically TV/LCD technology, simple terms such as “3D” and “HDTV” probably contain the vast cope of your knowledge. On that note, all 3D and HDTV’s sold in stores are some form of 16:9 or 16:10 with a few 4:3′s still hanging on for a tiny shred of attention. That’s all groovy and all if you’re into “normal” movie watching. For video junkies who really want a piece of the theater inside their house, the Phillips 21:9 uber wide (cinema edition) LCD is the only answer. We looked at this particular TV several months back and are still just as enamored with it’s shear size and length as were were back then.

Even with an aspect ratio that’s almost longer than life itself, the 21:9 beauty couldn’t milk that feature forever. So how exactly do you improve a 21:9 uber TV? Add 3D of course! For naysayers bringing up the valid point that movies aren’t released as 21:9 titles, take note. The TV actively resizes the picture to fit on the extra long screen. And from the videos I’ve seen of it in action, does a fairly damn good job.

Unfortunately, an anemic wallet as well as utter lack of any easy way to pick one up in the states means that for now, the Phillips 21:9 3D TV will still remain an object of desire.

Price? Don’t expect anything remotely affordable…
