TV maker Hisense has announced a new range of laser projection TVs at CES 2021. While other makers such as Sony, LG and Samsung have stuck to the traditional panel displays, Hisense has been breaking out of the box a bit with its laser alternatives for a few years now. The company claims its new TriChroma Laser TV is the only display on the market that meets the BT2020 colour standard. In addition, it offers 50% better colour than high-end cinema projectors and has a brightness of 430 nits which is impressive for a projector-like display. It is still not as bright as LCD TVs which can max out at 1,000 nits.
Still, the Hisense TriChroma Laser TV is something completely out there in terms of its feature set and capabilities. For starters, there’s a 100-inch model called the 100L9 Pro. This TV features a projection unit in black and rose gold and a full speaker which is built into the projection unit. For those who don’t know, the Hisense Laser TV range aims to deliver a stunning in-cinema viewing experience at home by offering 75-inch to 100-inch giant screens that are powered by the laser projection unit. It is like having your own personal movie theatre at home.
When it comes to its panel displays, Hisense is also working on new ULED Mini-LED TVs. These have some massive advantages over OLED TVs including higher brightness, deeper contrast levels and are more energy-efficient. Mini-LED technology is the future of displays across the board. Smartphones, notebooks and televisions will all make use of the tech in the years ahead.
Hisense says that the new ULED Mini-LED TV range will come in a 65 and 75-inch for the 4K and a 75-inch for the 8K unit. Of course, the 8K TV packs an AI upscaling feature to enhance 4K content for the higher-resolution display.
There are also some great gaming features in the new Hisense ULED Mini-LED range. The TVs are HDR 10+ and Dolby Vision certified. They also pack eARC and Dolby Atmos support. Hisense claims the range includes a Game Mode Pro setting that enables VRR (Variable Refresh Rate), ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and the TVs come with HDMI 2.1 and AMD FreeSync. Hisense has not announced the price for either the Laser TV or the ULED Mini-LED displays yet. However, the company says it will be available in Q2 2021.
