TCL Reveals 2018 4K Roku Ultra HD TV Lineup with Dolby Vision

Share

The new 2018 TCL 4K UHD HDR Dolby Vision 6-series and 5-series will be very popular TVs in 2018. Roku Connect will enable the sets to easily connect to other A/V devices in the Roku ecosystem like soundbars and speakers, and Roku Entertainment Assistant will let viewers launch all manner of content with a voice command.

The Dolby Vision HDR-endowed 5-Series in 43-, 49-, 55- and 65-inch screen sizes, meant to address the needs of mainstream consumers, carries some identical features but has an HDR Performance Package set that substitutes HDR Dynamic Contrast - which uses information embedded in Dolby Vision content for heightened picture performance - for the 6-Series' Contrast Control Zone technology, and will offer the 240 Motion technology on the top two screen sizes only.

Fortunately, that isn't likely the case for TCL's newer TVs, which the company also announced at the press conference.

TCL announced its much anticipated suite of new products at the 2018 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES). The televisions will also continue to feature the Roku OS that TCL uses.

This soundbar is the first device to take advantage of Roku Connect's technology. For now, the TCL Roku Smart Sound Bar is the only device with Roku Connect, but you could easily see how other speakers and TVs will adopt the new standard. "TCL is dedicated to integrating leading technologies into our entertainment product portfolio and by partnering with Roku we're bringing a better home theater experience to our consumers". Roku Entertainment Assistant will allow for seamless voice control of Roku OS devices in the home. The 6-Series also come with a new Roku TV voice remote, 802.11ac WiFI, Ethernet and three HDMI 2.0a ports.

"Chief among the announcements is the TCL Roku 6-Series TVs, which offer 4K resolution and HDR, as well as Contrast Control Zone Technology, which includes 96 zones on the smaller 55" model and 120 zones on the larger 65" model. The 5-Series benefits from TCL's HDR Performance Package, which features HDR Dynamic Contrast.

The 5-Series will be available this spring with sizes ranging from 43 to 65 inches.
