TP Vision, Abbey Road Studios and Universal Music UK want to create exclusive content for Philips OLED + TVs. The production of a “Sound & Light” performance by cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason is also being planned.

TP Vision, the company behind the brand Philips TV, offers not only innovative technology, but also new exclusive content in the future. It starts with a collaboration with the Abbey Road Studios and Globe. The latter is the Creative & Commercial Partnership department of Universal Music UK.

In a joint production, studio and live recordings by the world-famous cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason are to be combined into an audio-visual experience. The project expands the collaboration with the audio specialists at Bowers & Wilkins. Their expertise has been used for years in Philips TVs as well as in the production technology in the Abbey Road Studios.


With content from Universal Music’s creative forge Mercury Studios, exclusive reference material is now being created. This is intended to underline the quality of the current and next generation of Philips OLED + TVs, which will start in August. OLED + TVs are the premium models in the Philips TV range. TP Vision developed them for the best possible picture and sound quality for home theater experiences.

The TVs present high-resolution content with the latest OLED screen technology and the award-winning Philips P5 image processing suite. Thanks to Ambilight and the sound systems of the audio specialists at Bowers & Wilkins, you can immerse yourself in the audio-visual experiences.

TP Vision and Abbey Road Studios

The three companies are already a well-rehearsed team when it comes to multimedia technology and content creation. TP Vision is the official TV partner of Abbey Road Studios. There the Philips high-end TVs are used as reference screens. Bowers & Wilkins is the official speaker and headphone partner on Abbey Road. The well-known loudspeakers of the 800 series have enabled precise monitoring in the control rooms of the legendary studio with their sound quality at reference level for over 40 years.

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason

The Briton Sheku Kanneh-Mason (MBE) is a world cello star from a young age. He achieved his first international recognition as the winner of the BBC Young Musician Award. Then, at the age of only 21, he made it into the top 20 with two albums. As the only artist to date, he was honored to be invited to a second appearance at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA).

His albums Carnival and Elgar connect him with Abbey Road Studios. He took both of them there. With the latter he was the first cellist to achieve a top 10 position in the British charts. One of the currently most exciting talents in classical music is involved in this creative project, which aims to bring out the respective know-how of the individual partners and the full experience potential of Philips OLED + TVs.

Classical music presented in a new way

Sheku Kanneh-Mason said: “I was very happy that I was asked to take part in this project. To be able to experience recordings in the Abbey Road Studios, I feel very lucky that not everyone is part of it. Their history and cult status inspire and awe in me. Everything that is created there is of the highest technical quality. I’m always interested in new ways to present classical music in a new way. “

New perspectives

Martijn Smelt, TP Vision’s Chief Marketing Officer, is enthusiastic about the collaboration: “Our partnership with Bowers & Wilkins for OLED + models has already set new technical quality standards in the TV market. By working with Abbey Road Studios, we would also like to open up new perspectives for the quality of content. We look forward to publicly presenting the results of our joint work with this very special artist. “

The legendary Abbey Road Studios

“The combination of sound and image is very important to Abbey Road Studios. After all, this is where the recordings for some of the most important film scores in modern cinema were made. We are pleased to be able to show, through the collaboration with TP Vision and Bowers & Wilkins, how new visual experiences can be defined and new standards of immersion for consumers can be created by combining sonic and visual excellence, ”said Jeremy Huffelmann, General Manager of Abbey Road Studios.

The results of this project will officially premiere when Philips TV & Sound presents the new products for autumn and winter to the public at the end of August.
