Hisense CES 2022 – expect bigger and better

Hisense has come a long way from its challenger brand roots and is up there for picture quality with the major brands. Hisense CES 2022 is about bigger screens and even better picture quality.

It is in almost every TV segment. We will flesh this announcement out once we have local model numbers, pricing and availability.

Short throw Laser from April 2022

Its new tri-colour X-Fusion 120L9G laser looks spectacular, especially for media room use. It will throw a maximum 120” image from 30cm on the included Ambient Light Rejecting screen. You need to select the right screen for you – daylight or Cinema for media room use.

It runs the Google Android TV OS and supports voice assistants. That also means it has a DVB-T tuner.

It has three LCD (RGB) and a 25000-hour laser using Texas Instruments DLP display technology. The result is up to 4K@50Hz (Australian model) and 107% of the BT.2020 colour gamut, giving it the ability to display up to 1 billion colours (older lasers show up to 16.7m colours). Don’t confuse BT.2020 with DCI-P3 – the former is more realistic and shows more colours than the latter, a Digital Cinema Initiatives solely for movies.

It has 3000 ANSI lumens (about 875 nits) and can display HDR10 content (Dolby Vision is downscaled to HDR10 for movie-by-movie frame settings). It supports Dolby Atmos (DA) decoding and downmixing to its 2 x 20W left/right speakers. DA metadata will pass through to a suitable soundbar over HDMI 2.0 ARC.

Mini-LED 75” 8K

All we know is that it is a mini-LED with Quantum Dot. It has a new, more powerful processor and for 8K upscale (as there is little commercially available 8K content), Dolby Vision IQ, Dolby Atmos, and runs Android TV instead of VIDAA.

Mini-LED 4K Pro

In 55, 65, 75, and 90” models with 8K mini-LED features.

55, 65 and 75” missing the ‘pro features’.

ULED 4K (U8G) and 8K (U80G)

ULED is Hisense’s take on full-array local dimming pro backlit LCD Quantum Dot and produces vibrant and saturated colours. The 2022 update brings Game Mode, Quick Frame Transport, HDMI 2.1 (4K@120Hz for game consoles) and an update to Dolby Vision IQ (ambient light adjustment).

These run VIDAA U6 (and smartphone app) and have additional streaming providers like Disney+, but you should check that your streaming service is available before buying any smart TV brand.

UHD

Hisense’s value range of LED edge-lit LCD TVs run VIDAA 6 OS and come in 43, 50, 55, 65, 75 and 85” sizes.

Things we won’t see

There are a lot of announcements exclusive to the Chinese market that we may see variations off later this year. Pretty well, anything running Android TV is for other markets.
