Hisense CES 2019: Dolby Vision and Amazon Alexa are coming to Hisense’s 2019 Smart TVs
More smarts and better picture quality are the focus for Hisense in 2019.
Chinese electronics manufacturer Hisense gave entertainment buffs plenty to look forward to with its CES 2019 press conference today. The new year will see a fresh wave of Hisense Smart TVs hitting Aussie shores, from the more-affordable Series 6 UHD TV to the top-of-the-line Series 9 Premium ULED TV.
Core to the 2019 line-up is a focus on improved image quality. All Hisense's 2019 ULED TVs will feature Dolby Vision HDR, allowing for more accurate representation of light and darkness in HDR-supported content. This is backed up by additional technologies including 10-bit colour, Quantum Dot and Ultra Local Dimming.
Hisense's new flagship TV, the Series 9, goes even further by sporting UHD Premium Certification and 2500-bit peak brightness, allowing it to display a clear image in even brighter ambient environments. The Series 9 also packs Hisense's new "Hi-View Engine Pro" technology, which the company claims enhances picture quality on all content, whether it be garden-variety standard definition video or 4K HDR.
The partnership with Dolby continues into the sound space. All Hisense's 2019 ULED TVs will feature Dolby Atmos, the three-dimensional audio technology capable of adding a layer of locational information to sound. When supported, Dolby Atmos can produce audio that seems to come from above, behind and around you, helping to immerse you in a movie, TV show or video game.
Keeping with the trend set by LG, Hisense is building upon the smarts of its Smart TVs in 2019. All models will come installed with Hisense's custom VIDAA U 3.0 operating system, which incorporates voice control via Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, giving you the choice to use whichever platform you prefer. Additionally, Bluetooth support will be baked in across the entire 2019 range, allowing you to connect wireless speakers and headphones without the need for any adaptors.
