TCL released further details, including pricing and shipping info, for its 6-series line of 4K HDR Roku TVs, first previewed during CES in January.
Offered in two sizes, the 6-series will be priced at $649 (55-inch, model 55R617) and $999 (65-inch, model 65R617).
As at CES, TCL highlighted the TVs’ proprietary Contrast Control Zones technology, said to identify bright and dark areas in each frame of content, and control each zone within the frame, to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas. While the previous P6 series had 72 zones, the 6 series boasts 96 zones for the 55-inch model and 120 zones for the 65-inch version.
In addition, the company’s NBP (Nano Band Phosphor) Photon technology combines high-output LEDs with precision phosphors to deliver a palette “nearly matching” the DCI-P3 reference color standard, said TCL.
Further enhancing picture quality is TCL’s HDR Pro Gamma technology, which creates custom tone maps for different settings for more accurate reproductions in various lighting environments. The 6-Series offers picture settings for dark home theaters (HDR Dark), moderately bright living rooms (HDR Normal), and bright sunlit spaces (HDR Bright).
Other features include the most recent Roku OS, Dolby Vision HDR, wide color gamut and a Roku TV Voice Remote.
