Recognition of TCL’s leading products and cutting-edge AI technology, cements our place in global TV industry vanguard

Recognised as one of the world’s largest and America’s fastest-growing television brands, we were honoured to have been named a CES 2018 Innovation Awards Honoree for our 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6. The decision was made by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media that judges cutting-edge consumer electronics products across 28 categories. Entries are evaluated on their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function, user value, unique/novel features and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace.

The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, the owner, and producer of CES 2018. The Awards have been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976. Products chosen as CES Innovation Honorees reflect innovative design and engineering in some of the most advanced tech products and services coming to the market.

The 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6 employs world-leading Quantum Dot display technology. Its color volume is 2.8× higher than OLED (500 nits) and its color purity is 58.3 percent better than traditional TVs. At 60,000 hours, the color lifespan of the 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6 is twice as long as a regular OLED TV. The X6 adopts a local dimming solution and its picture hits 1,200 nits in peak brightness, contributing to 600 backlit partitions. The contrast ratio (12 million:1) is increased by local dimming – supported by 1,200 LED backlights. The 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6 supports Dolby Vision™ high-dynamic-range (HDR).

The 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6 comes with a Harman Kardon sound system, offering 12-sound channels and 360° surround stereo sound with a 10” woofer. The volume generated by the 7.1.4 sound system reaches 40L.

Both Dolby Atmos® 7.1.4 sound technology and DTS: X 7.1.4 technology are supported. Dolby Atmos delivers an immersive sound experience that directs audio all around the listener. Designed with rare earth magnets and equipped with silk dome loudspeakers, the 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6 creates the most authentic theater sound achievable at home. In addition, the set has a “night mode” and is Bluetooth-enabled.

The 85” QLED XESS Private Theatre X6’s metallic finish gives it a luxury touch. Also, the product provides the home designer with three different options – it can be hung on the wall, set on a cabinet or placed on the floor.
