The millionth 42-inch Ambilight FlatTV has been produced at Philips’ manufacturing facility in Burges, Belgium. How’s that for a milestone? Hopefully it was made to Flemish cheers and rounds of Stella. Frankly I’m surprised they’ve produced so many of these beasties.
The Ambilight system is said to contribute to the viewing experience by casting ambient light from the rear of the set. I’m sort of on the fence about the utility of these feature, but I’ve yet to actually see it in action, so I don’t really know first hand.
