  • Well we’ve had ULED, SUHD and Super UHD TV so surely there’s room for another confusing acronym as TCL announce their QUHD TVs at CES 2016.
    The new line-up features Dolby Vision as well as Quantum Dot technology and Ultra HD 4K technology with a wider variety of content options. TCL also announced its first 4K TCL Roku TV models in the U.S. and TCL will also be showing its leading 110’’ 4K Ultra HD Curved TV, for which it was named a CES Innovation Award honoree.

    The new X1 Series brings QUHD High Dynamic Range Performance with Dolby Vision, the 65” X1 Series delivers a wide colour gamut, brighter highlights and increased light-to-dark contrast. TCL X1 TVs are equipped with an Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K display and TCL 4K Creative Pro up-scaling. The TVs feature a colour space powered by Quantum Dot technology and up to 1000 nits peak brightness.

    To deliver the latest in HDR technology, TCL has partnered with Dolby to integrate Dolby Vision, its transformative HDR and wide colour gamut technology, into the X1 series. Dolby Vision HDR delivers images that are up to 40 times brighter than those that can be seen on today’s standard TV sets, deep blacks that provide a new level of richness and precision, as well as expanded contrast. TCL and Dolby are also partnering with major streaming service providers, including VUDU, to provide the new X1 Series with access to the latest 4K Ultra HD premium content mastered in Dolby Vision from leading studios.

    The new X1 Series combines the latest in TV technologies like HDR performance, 4K resolution and Quantum Dot display to bring the cinematic experience into the home,” said Chris Larson, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, TCL North America. “This product line makes good on TCL’s promise to deliver industry-leading technology, sleek design and robust content options, all at a great value.”

    The new TCL X1 Series will be available in China starting in March of 2016 and will be available in other key markets, in the second half of 2016. Who knows, maybe even the UK will get a look?
