TCL also announces that, for the first time ever, the new 5-Series models, as well as the award-winning 6-Series models, are able to deliver images in the DCI-P3 Hollywood reference color space that measure 100% color volume. This simply means that images will have saturated reds, stunning greens, and brilliant blues without sacrificing the TV’s lifespan or limiting lower color volume, a side effect found in other color technologies. It’s also meant to replicate cinema screens for true lifelike picture performance.
In addition to that, the new 5-Series and 6-Series models are able to project 4K ultra HD pictures. Support for Dolby Vision HDR and HDR Pro Pack enhances overall image quality that provides a truly cinematic experience at home.
TCL’s new 6-Series Roku TVs, for the first time ever, feature thousand of micro-meter class mini-LED backlights that contributes to its overall image quality. Adopting technology from the more premium 8-Series Roku TVs, 6-Series Roku TVs use this pioneered mini-LED backlit technology to introduce 240 Contrast Control Zones. This allows for even greater control over the image’s highlights and shadows by optimizing across individual zones instead of one whole picture.
In addition to great color, the new 6-Series Roku TVs and their sophisticated color technology are paired with advanced audio processing technology to deliver “total entertainment immersion.” With support for Dolby Atmos, the devices are able to produce moving, spatially aware audio to really transport viewers into the show or movie they are watching.
Additionally, the TCL 6-Series will be the world’s first TV with THX Certified Game Mode. TCL’s partnership with THX brings a new standard for big-screen gaming performance. In this game mode, TVs will turn into ultra-low-latency gaming displays capable of variable refresh rate and additional Auto Game Mode features for a fast and optimized gaming experience.
The 6-Series Roku TVs are finished with a bold, brushed metal design that allows versatile and configurable installations to suit any room in the house. It comes in a range of screen sizes that offer 2-position configurable legs and a built-in easy cable management system integrated into one of the legs.
For the first time ever, TCL’s 5-Series Roku TVs will also feature QLED color and TCL’s Contrast Control Zone technology which is normally reserved for more premium lines. The 5-Series’s Contrast Control Zone technology is able to control up to 80 zones of LED lights. In addition to that, the TCL 5-Series also comes in a range of sizes and boast of a FullView bezel-less design for an even more immersive experience. It also carries additional features such as Dolby Vision, HDR Pro Pack, and Auto Game Mode for an enhanced overall experience.
Lastly, both the 5-Series and 6-Series support Easy Voice Control that allows popular voice assistants, like Alexa or Google Assistant, access to additional controls to the TVs.
Being Roku TV models, both lines have access to more than 500,00 movies and TV shows delivered through a personalized home screen. With Roku Search, users can filter channels and shows by title, actor, or even director. In the absence of a remote, users can download the free Roku mobile app which also supports controls via voice control. Other features include a new Live TV Channel guide (accessible through The Roku Channel), Spanish language voice support, and visual search.
The TCL 6-Series will be available in 55” starting at $649.99, 65” at $899.99, and 75” at $1399.99. The TCL 5-Series starts at $400 with screen sizes ranging from 50” to 75”. Both are available starting today at various retailers.
