I’m sure my readers know that CES 2021 is in full bloom now, and will be for the rest of the week. Normally, I go to Las Vegas to bring as much info and pictures for the event, and while I was hoping to get some video for my channel this year, COVID-19 changed all that.
Yes, CES 2021 is all virtual, and the Hisense Visual Technology Press Conference addressed that at the very beginning with a video montage showing how their display technology has kept people connected.
The show then began on a stage with no applauding crowd as Vice President of Hisense, Fisher Yu, stepped out. He talked about a saying he heard years ago concerning the “People of the Screen”, and how it has come to pass. He then discussed how he wanted Hisense to focus on social TV, such as their 8K TV.
He also talked a lot about the TriChroma Laser TV, and how the self-rising mass-produced TV will be 70 to 300 whopping inches. There was a lot of talk about chips, with the 2021 mini LED and 8K being applied to ULED TVs. He also talked about eco-system screens, so consumers can cover their life, no matter where they are with multi-touchscreens.
It sounds good, and Fisher Yu then gave the floor to Dr. Xianrong Liu, Chief Scientist of Hisense Laser Display. He reminded the audience that Hisense introduced their first laser TV in 2015, and in just six years, three things have occurred:
1) Overseas TV sales increased 288 percent in 2020
2) Three TV models are in the top 10 of 2020
3) Laser TV has withstood the pandemic.
The company really is in love with this special edition TriChroma Laser, with a new RGB laser source, not to mention great audio. They had a terrific looking video of it to promote it, and this TV will also have a 128 percent color improvement and 107 percent BT 2020. These new Laser TVs will be equipped with cameras that will support everyday functions like socialization and fitness.
The presentation ended with an odd dance video that you can see in the image above. There was also a promise made of breaking through the 2D barrier into something 3D, and used Blade Runner 2049 as an example. I wonder if other companies will make this holographic promise.
One of the many slogans it ended with was “2021: Expect the good to happen”. We will see on that one, particularly the holographic displays. For now, we’ll stay tuned for some very good displays.
