The widescreen Philips 9" Portable LCD Digital TV with FM Tuner offers free-to-air digital television channels on a nine-inch diagonal TFT color LCD screen with 600 x 220 resolution. Besides enjoying TV, the portable unit also delivers FM radio through the integrated FM digital tuner. The screen features both 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios, as well as an on-screen display with multiple subtitles supported. Since the digital TV is portable, every time you turn on the device in a different location, it automatically scans for all the available digital channels. Plus, since the TV is purely digital, the signal is never converted to analog; this maintains the highest-quality all digital, unconverted signal. The digital signal combined with the high-resolution affords almost high-definition detail and image quality.
Unlike other similar TVs, the Philips Portable TV also provides a digital FM tuner. The channel and preset number can be displayed on the nine-inch screen. Plus, there's a headphone jack for enjoying both radio and TV without disturbing anyone. This is perfect for using the device on trains, buses and in cars. The headphone jack features an RMS output power of 10mW. When you're alone, there is a built-in 62dB speaker with 250mW RMS output power. The signal-to-noise ratio is >80dB. There's also a built-in battery for when you're traveling or enjoying the TV outdoors. The battery is rechargeable and lets you watch up to three hours of television between charges.
When you're indoors, the included universal AC adapter affords continuous viewing and listening. Another highlight of the Philips Portable TV is the inclusion of a detachable antenna. Since the antenna can be easily removed, users can quickly connect other antennas such as indoor or rooftop antennas. This ensures that you'll always be able to obtain the highest-quality signal connection possible, no matter where you are enjoying your mobile TV. Plus, since there is an on-screen menu and automatic channel search, even installing and setting up the TV is simple and quick.
