Continuation, again, of our presentation of the novelties unveiled by the manufacturer Hisense at the CES show in Las Vegas 2022. After the 8K Hisense LX8 Laser TV, Hisense 77R1 Rollable Laser TV, Hisense L9G Laser TV and Hisense PX1-Pro TriChroma Laser TV , after the Hisense 65A9H 4K UHD TV and Hisense 85U9H 8K UHD TV, make way for the Hisense U8HQ series.

Hisense U8HQ, Mini LED backlight

Replacing the U8GH specimens, the evolutions of the Hisense U8HQ screens mainly reside in the presence of a Mini LED backlighting system instead of a Full LED Local Dimming specimen associated with a native 10-bit 100 Hz LCD panel. The Asian manufacturer announces a little more than a hundred zones (120 on the 65 '') and a luminous peak at 1,500 nits.

Hisense U8HQ, Dolby Atmos and Wisa compatibility

For the rest, we should find the Filmmaker Mode, Imax Enhanced certification and the Dolby Vision IQ function associated with an ambient light sensor. Also on the program, a double stand, an anti-reflective coating, MEMC type movement compensation, Hi-View Engine image processing, Dolby Atmos management via a 3.1.2 audio system (presence of fireplace speakers and 'a subwoofer at the back of the TV), HDR Dolby Vision / HDR10 + and HDR HLG compatibilities as well as a wide color space such as WCG (Wide Color Gamut) 100% of the DCI-P3 thanks to the integration of Quantum Dots technology. As a reminder, this uses nanocrystals capable of emitting a given color to improve the tonal spectrum). We must also point out the Wisa compatibility to broadcast TV sound on compatible, wireless speakers.

Smart TV Vidaa U

We also note the Smart TV Vidaa U function, associated with a particularly swift Quad Core processor, with the emphasis on the integration of local applications (Molotov, Canal +, Netflix, Salto, Disney +). But Vidaa U is also the integration of Google Assistant (Works with Hey Google), in addition to the Amazon Alexa voice assistant. Also on the program, artificial intelligence to display on the right of the screen recommendations according to the tastes of the spectator (s), real-time information on the weather, or even information on the best applications of the moment. Finally, Vidaa U also allows automatic recognition of peripherals connected to the TV (decoder, game console, Blu-Ray player, etc.) for greatly improved ergonomics. Likewise, it includes an internet browser, a store with more than 200 applications, access to Netflix 4K, YouTube 4K, Amazon Prime Video 4K, (with direct access key Netflix, Youtube and on the remote)…

Finally, navigation never exceeds three clicks to access the desired settings or services. Of course, the management of HEVC and VP9 decoding is required. Still in the multimedia chapter, we note the Dual Band Wi-Fi ac and Bluetooth functions.

In bulk…

And on the connection side, there are four HDMI 2.1 inputs (eARC, VRR, ALLM). It remains to be seen if this year, the 4K / 120 function will be on the program, Hisense has not given details on this subject. The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions will obviously be required and the integrated microphone allows voice control of the TV. To return to the connection, two USB Host ports (including a 3.0) with DVR and Time Shifting function, an Ethernet port, a CI + port, etc. Last precision, the Hisense U8H TVs include a DVB-T2, DVB-S2 tuner. and DVB-C, benefit from an Input Lag of less than 20 ms, without forgetting the Fransat compatibility.
