What is all this ‘U’ business about?

Choosing the right television can be more stressful than choosing a holiday. With so many options and variations on the market today, and so much marketing noise to back it all up, it’s always good to become a little more informed before you make your decision.   We have previously done a piece that spoke about our various different products across the current TV landscape and how each one of these would suite your lifestyle. So, in this article, let’s hone our focus in on our UHD TV range and dissect the different features and benefits, help you sharpen up on your tech savvy knowledge, so that when you buy your next TV, you’ll have a better idea of what’s going on.   The best place to start is to understand what a UHD TV is. The UHD TV or Ultra-high-definition (UHD) television is a digital television display format where the horizontal screen resolution consists of 4000 pixels (4K UHD), or even 8000 (8K UHD) pixels in some cases. A 4K display actually has a total number of 8.3 megapixels (if we add in the vertical resolution as well), which is roughly FOUR TIMES as many megapixels as a conventional HDTV. Can you see why we make so much noise about the amazing picture quality from our Hisense UHD TV’s?   Every one of our UHD TV’s is developed with a bunch of features that you can find across all of the models. But before we address these, we need to address the issue of size. These are TV’s that we are talking about after all. You see, the thing about Hisense as a brand is, we want to put our most advanced technology in the hands of our consumers. This means that when it comes to UHD TV’s, we create them in sizes that range from 43” all the way up to 75”. Every single one delivering the same 4K quality viewing experience that you can expect from a UHD TV. Now that we’ve covered the issue of size, let’s get into the standard features you’ll find across our UHD TV Range:   HDR TECHNOLOGY: Or high-dynamic-range technology reproduces a higher dynamic range of luminosity than with standard images displays. This means that the colour spectrum is more accurate and vivid and the contrasts between lighter and darker shades more dynamic.   TRUE 4K IMAGERY: Every UHD TV screen features True 4K technology that includes the 100% RGB colour spectrum.   VIDAA SMART TV OPERATING SYSTEM: The best thing about our in-house Smart TV operating system is that it is fully customizable, which mean that you can design your TV-on-demand experience exactly the way you want it. Each UHD TV comes preloaded with DSTV Now, Netflix, Showmax and YouTube.   It is also worthwhile mentioning that also have two models (50” and 58”) that use the Android TV operating system, which allows any app downloads straight from Google Play.   DTS SOUND TECHNOLOGY: This is a facility that allows for a high-quality multichannel (7 primary audio channels) audio output, as well as an additional subwoofer signal, essentially providing you with a full 7.1 surround sound audio capability.   REMOTE NOW: And for the icing on the cake so to speak, the Remote Now function gives you control of your UHD TV via your smart phone. So, losing the remote control doesn’t become an issue any more. Well at least if you lose your mobile phone, you can always call it ;).   It goes without saying that all of our UHD TV’s also come with the usual features you can expect from a modern Smart TV. Every unit comes with multiple HDMI ports (3 on most models), the ability to play different media source files from the built-in media player, USB ports, and because they are UHD, the 4K upscaling feature will upgrade any picture to 4K quality, depending on the original source.   At the end of the day, stay educated about the technology to understanding what you are buying. Our products and what they provide are always geared to give you the best experience as economically as possible.
