Hisense To Launch ‘FUHD’ 8K TV’s In Australia This Year

Hisense is set to be one of the first TV brands to launch 8K TV’s in Australia.

Known as ULED Vs OLED the new TV’s will also be referred to as Full Ultra High Definition “FUHD” TV’s.
 
Let me explain: “Full HD,” is 1920-horizontal-by-1080-vertical resolution, the newer term is “Ultra HD,” which is 3840-horizontal-by-2160-vertical resolution.
 
Now with the newest, term, “Full Ultra HD,” resolution is delivered at 7680-horizontal-by-4320-vertical resolution also known as “FUHD.” 
 
At CES ChannelNews got a demonstration of the new Hisense 8K offering that was demonstrated up against an OLED TV. The resolution and quality was excellent.  
 
The Hisense MU9800U features a 7680x4320p resolution – four times more pixels than 4K, and a Black Crystal Panel.
 

Several TV’s currently being sold in Australia have not come close to providing the deep black levels that organic LEDs have been able to deliver.

That could possibly change with Hisense’s ULED 3.0 technology. In short, ULED stands for “Ultra LED” and in comparison with Organic LED (OLED) technology it is reported to have indistinguishable black levels. OLED bottoms out at around 0.001 cd/m2, so this is quite an impressive feat.
 

Andre Iannuzzi Marketing Director at Hisense Australia, claims ULED is an LED backlight control technology “that uses small crystals roughly 5-20 nanometers in size to produce an enhanced picture. This technology is based on dynamic backlight control, local dimming and a high or wide colour gamut to improve viewing experience.”

The display also has 600 micro dimming zones. Micro dimming is a software technique that can instantly decide whether to adjust lightness and darkness of a frame by adjusting individual cells in the LCD itself rather than the LEDs.
 
The MU9800U also boasts a High Colour Gamut at 150 percent of the ITU Rec.709 specification and 85 percent of the ITU Rec.2020 specification.
 
For those who are looking to futureproof their TV investment there is 8K content out there. 
 
If you browse YouTube for 8K content, you’ll notice that this television set will be able to play a whopping eight clips by non-amateur videographers. 
 
They include Patagonia 8K, Ghost Towns in 8K, Norway in 8K, Saturn Timelapse in 8K, Haleakala National Park in 8K, Tokyo Timelapse Demo in 8K, Tokyo HDR Timelapse in 8K, and a Highway, Shipyard and Soccer Field in 8K.
 
Pricing for Australia has not been announced yet. The 8K Hisense TV is tipped to arrive mid-year.
