Hisense launches 100-inch 4K 'Laser TV'

  1. Hisense at the Consumer Electronics Show in January introduced its 4K Laser Cast TV. While it certainly looked impressive, it was also a bit deceptive as it technically wasn’t a television but rather, a short-throw projector.

    On Wednesday, the Chinese electronics maker launched a follow-up to its earlier home entertainment solution.

    The Hisense 100-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Laser TV is essentially the same concept, a short-throw projector designed to deliver large-screen visuals without the hassles typically associated with projectors. According to Hisense, it doesn’t require a special darkened environment or “cumbersome” equipment.

    At the heart of the system is a Texas Instruments DLP 4K UHD DMD chip and Smart Motion Plus technology that’s capable of rendering images faster than an LED-based set. The unit is rated at 3,000 lumens with a 20,000-hour lifespan and features a built-in TV tuner and a smart TV platform.

    Video is projected onto a 100-inch anti-glare screen courtesy of Screen Innovations.

    The setup also includes a 110-watt, 2.1-channel audio system from Harman. Hisense says the system is comprised of five total speakers – two each in the left and right channels and a 6.5-inch wireless subwoofer.

    The Hisense 100-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart Laser TV is available as of writing from select retailers and on Hisense’s website at an MSRP of $9,999.

    What's happens after 20.000 hour lifespan of the lightbulb (or does it not have one)?

    It uses laser, so no it doesn't have a lightbulb.

    The whole thing sacrifices itself and all the householders to the Elder Ones.

    At $10K, I would think that most people who would buy this are not going to want the 2.1 speakers as they most likely possess a sound system that is far better than that. If I were to buy one of these, I would want a version without the 2.1 speakers.

    Hisense, for people with no sense (and too much money!) Comparable hardware available for half the $

    Actually this is a good deal and if it lasts that long before you need a replacement then its a bargain that no doubt will get cheaper over the next couple of years. Considering in 2013 Samsung began selling an 85-inch 4K TV for $40,000 and now they are going to sell a tv that costs $ 150,000 that is 110 inchs big then the Hisense is cheap as chips.
