Announced for the end of winter 2023, the Hisense L9HE TriChroma Laser TVs equipped with a triple laser source and a 100'' (254 cm) or 120'' (305 cm) screen welcome new features.

In 2023, the Hisense L9HE TriChroma Laser TVs will sport a new design, integrate the Smart TV Vidaa U6 function, an HDMI 2.0b input with the eARC function and new image processing announced by the manufacturer to be more efficient, in particular in terms of motion compensation MEMC (Motion Estimation/Motion Compensation).

Laser TV Hisense L9HE, Main Specifications

For the rest, the Hisense L9HE TriChroma Laser TVs finally benefit from HDR Dolby Vision compatibility, announced by the brand on the L9GE specimens at the CES show in Las Vegas 2022 and ultimately absent from the marketed product. Otherwise, a bright peak of 2,800 lumens and 107% coverage of the Rec.2020 gamut (more or less what the human eye sees) are still in order. The equipment also remains the same with the X-Fusion Laser Light Engine module, exclusive to the brand and based on a triple RGB laser.

Laser TV, késako?

As a reminder, with Laser TVs, based on ultra-short focal length video projector technology, a few tens of centimeters of distance are enough (less than 40 cm) to obtain an image up to 100'' (254 cm). And as their surname suggests, the Laser TVs have a DVB-T2/DVB-C/DVB-S2 tuner to enjoy DTT, cable or satellite channels.
