P5 Gen7, heart of Philips OLED808 TVs

On the menu of all these TV series, and featured, the seventh generation of the P5 processor with artificial intelligence for a magnified HDR experience. We therefore find all the functionalities associated with this new chip: ambient light sensor, anti-marking system (to counter the Burn-In phenomenon)… Plus an improved version of the Ambient Intelligence process intended to adjust in real time the brightness, the gamma and colorimetry adapted to ambient lighting. This is based on a new light sensor that is much more precise to offer a white point that perfectly matches the lighting of the moment. Namely, the Super Resolution function, also improved, offers unprecedented sharpness and a great wealth of detail.

Also, the three-sided Ambilight function is in order. As a reminder, since last year the latter has been managing the color diodes placed at the back of the TV, around the edge of the panel, independently and no longer in groups of diodes for a significantly more precise synchronization with the images displayed on the screen.
