In addition to its curved UHDTVs, Hisense also showed flat models in two series—H9 with 75" and 85" sizes and H8c with screens measuring 50, 55, and 65 inches. Both series are based on Android 4.2 and include lots of smart TV apps. All models are LED edgelit, and the H9 claims to have "local dimming," though I object to that characterization in edgelit sets. The H9 is navigable via the company's new VIDAA graphical user interface, and it comes with Bluetooth active-shutter 3D glasses, an RF remote with NFC (Near-Field Communications), and voice and gesture control.


Hisense was touting its U-LED (Ultimate-LED) technology, which is used in the H9 series, even comparing it to OLED. This technology includes several elements, including advanced backlight control, Hi-View imaging engine, broad-spectrum backlight, and a proprietary technology to improve the transmissivity between the backlight and color filters. Another feature is called Smart Peaking, a proprietary algorithm that controls the voltage applied to the LCD module to control response time.


Both series should be available in the third quarter of this year.


The H9 UHDTVs from Hisense claim "local dimming" with LED edgelighting—yeah, right.

Well, when the TV is turned off, I'm pretty sure it does compare to an OLED panel.
