Among the changes that Hisense will lead to CES 2017 (5 to 8 January in Las Vegas) and there will be TV with 8K resolution (7680 x 4320 pixels). The anticipation comes from French sources and looks absolutely credible. The Chinese manufacturer has already shown prototypes at IFA 2016, occasion in which was announced the availability in the course of 2017. At the moment it is not possible to know whether the products will be the same as those on display at IFA, or whether there will be firsts.
Recall that this series was the IFA M9800 composed of TV ULED (Ultra LED) 3.0 . The panels used are LCD 8K resolution from 65 “ and 98″ . The backlight is of type Full LED with local dimming . At IFA had spoken of about 300 to 600 control zones and other areas managed by an algorithm that optimizes the contrast ratio.
There are also the Quantum Dot (the rest are part of the budget on all ULED Hisense high-end) and to HDR support (for now we speak of HDR10 ). The coverage of the DCI-P3 color space could reach 100% (on this point there are no firm information) while that of BT.2020 would stop 85%. The peak brightness should be at least 1,200 cd / m2 – nits (Hisense speaks of “HDR Supreme”, but it is a proprietary statement that does not give a precise indication). Do not miss the opportunity to convert video SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) in HDR.
The panel is a filter “ Moth Eye “, or eye moth, so named because it is able to break down the reflections thanks to nano-structures based in the eyes of moths (between the TV which recently have used the drug we mention the Samsung SUHD 2016). The motion compensation is entrusted to technology Ultra Smooth Motion composed of MEMC (Motion Estimation / Motion Compensation) and scanning backlight.
The Smart TV platform will use the new interface VIDAA U . Obviously there will be upgraded to the latest version of HDMI inputs, HDCP 2.2 and support for HEVC and VP9. It speaks, finally, of an external box for connections, an already proven solution (and in our opinion very valuable) from other producers (However this is a matter to be confirmed). More details will come in January by the CES booth.
