Philips Songbird lets you discover and play all your media, and sync it seamlessly with your Philips GoGear. Its intuitive and powerful music management features let you discover new artists and music styles directly in the program.
3.2" HVGA colour display for superb video enjoyment
A sleek 8.1 cm (3.2") widescreen display on your GoGear player offers high resolution for superb video quality and crisp, vivid images. Together with a full colour menu, the large screen allows easy navigation of media files to complete the package for a sensational multimedia experience on the go. To top it all off, a native 16:9 aspect ratio means video display without bars at top and bottom of the picture and without the quality loss that comes from scaling (altering an image to fit on a different screen)
FLAC and APE lossless codec support for precise sound quality
Enjoy digital music in a compressed format without losing any sound quality at all. GoGear supports FLAC and APE formats, which are files that have been shrunk without any details discarded. The richness and clarity of the original music source are retained for complete enjoyment wherever you are. Simply use the Philips Songbird software included with your GoGear, and drag and drop the FLAC or APE music files from your computer's music library into your GoGear. Get going with thousands of songs, and swing to the beat of the great originals.
FM radio with RDS and 20 presets for more music options
RDS (Radio Data System) is a communications protocol standard that allows digital information to be transmitted over FM radio broadcasts. RDS-enabled FM radio receivers can display useful information including station identity, programme details and song title and artist etc. You can store a desired station as a preset channel on your GoGear player at any time. With the ability to store 20 preset radio stations, you can quickly access your favourite radio station without having to tune the frequencies manually each time.
HDMI out to watch High Definition (720p) video on HDTV
View HD blockbuster movies or homemade videos in resolutions up to 720p on your HDTV. HDMI eliminates conversions to analogue signals, delivering digital audio and video directly, giving you perfect pictures and sounds that are completely free from noise. Simply connect your GoGear and HDTV with an HDMI cable and enjoy high quality and crystal clear video and audio entertainment. You can even control and browse through your videos conveniently on your GoGear screen. Share your movies with family and friends now.
microSD card slot for expanded memory capacity
Small is beautiful when it comes to mobile devices, but not memory capacities. With the GoGear player, you can have the best of both worlds just by plugging in a microSD card. The microSD card will show up as a second removable drive when the player is connected to your PC for easy file transfer. Just load your card with the desired content and slot it into your player. You can purchase memory cards of up to 32 GB to expand your GoGear memory capacity, so you never have to worry about running out of entertainment choices.
Sound Isolation headphones to minimise environmental noise
With sound isolation headphones, you will hear greater music details at a lower volume than is possible with normal headphones. Based on thorough understanding of the human ear canal anatomy, the sound isolation headphone's angled acoustic design creates a perfect seal between the ambient sound source and the ear canal, thus eliminating unwanted background noise while delivering sound directly to your ears. Even at a moderate volume setting, you can still discern music details without noise distractions from the environment. Earphone sleeves are available in three sizes to provide the best fit.
Touch-screen control for smooth and intuitive navigation
Feel the smooth and intuitive control of your GoGear portable player with the soft touch of your fingertips. Its intuitive touch-screen interface makes navigation a real breeze, whether you are controlling music playback functions, browsing your video and picture collections or choosing radio channels. Just click directly on the player's screen to navigate swiftly through menus and flip through your folders. Now that's what we call sensible and simple.
FullSound™ to bring your MP3 music to life
Philips' innovative FullSound technology faithfully restores sonic details to compressed MP3 music, dramatically enriching and enhancing it, so you can experience CD music without any distortion. Based on an audio post-processing algorithm, FullSound combines Philips' renowned expertise in music reproduction with the power of the latest generation Digital Signal Processor (DSP). The result is fuller bass with more depth and impact, boosted voice and instrument clarity, and rich detail. Rediscover your compressed MP3 music in true-to-life sound that will touch your soul and move your feet.
Surround for movies to put you in the middle of the action
Surround for movies is an advanced audio technology that directly analyses each sound source in a movie or video soundtrack to recreate a natural soundstage with sound elements that are individually and precisely localised. The processed sound elements are then directly delivered to each ear via in-ear headphones. Surround for movies generates a natural acoustical space based on the actual content of the soundtrack. The result puts the listener right in the middle of the action for an immersive surround experience - just as the film's sound engineer had intended.
More content choices, with Audible and BBC iPlayer support
Enjoy the best content on your Philips GoGear with Audible and BBC iPlayer. Audible offers over 75,000 audio programmes from leading audiobook publishers, broadcasters, entertainers, magazine and newspaper publishers and business information providers. Choose from a monthly plan or buy content a-la-carte to take with you on your GoGear. In the UK, catch up on any BBC TV programmes from the previous week that you missed.
