Hisense CES 2018

One of the highlights that we have been looking for from CES 2018 is the product showcase of Hisense. The Chinese multinational white goods and electronics manufacturer showcased their 100-Inch Laser TV as well as their 2018 UHD Smart TV line up, the H10E and the H8E TV series.

Hisense 100-Inch Laser TV

The Hisense 100-inch class 4K UHD Smart Laser TV (Model 100L8D) has already been made available on the market since the last quarter of 2017. Hisense 100-inch class 4K UHD Smart Laser TV (Model 100L8D)

Despite having the word or acronym “TV” in its product name, it’s not actually a TV.  It is actually a projector with an included 100-inch screen designed to reject ambient light. The projector features built-in speakers from Harman Kardon with a wireless subwoofer, 2 HDMI / 2 USB / RS-232 port connector, a built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi / Bluetooth and Ethernet port, a motion rate of 120, and is capable of producing 3000 Lumens. Furthermore, Hisense integrated its system with Netflix, Amazon Video, Pandora and YouTube. Oh, it’s also Alexa compatible.

Though it may not be commercially available yet worldwide, it’s just a matter of time before it becomes available to all major countries.
