As entertainment demands call for larger screens, TCL is once again leading TV industry innovation by making premium big-screen sizes more accessible through its investments in new panel production facilities. Few fully integrated TV brands like TCL can deliver home theater solutions that replace the cinema experience like the XL Collection – TCL’s first lineup of displays with screen sizes 80” and above. Three 85” models will roll out in 2021 and each TV will feature performance levels for every kind of home theater. Starting with a simply smart 85” 4-Series TCL Roku TV that delivers the easiest way to enjoy 4K HDR streaming, to an 85” 4K HDR TCL Roku TV with QLED wide color technology picture quality, to the ultimate 85” 8K TV featuring TCL’s highest performance display technologies, the XL Collection will fit any budget and exceed the standards to deliver larger-than-life home entertainment.
“In 2020, sales of big-screen TVs delivered significant growth – nearly doubling 2019 – with even more growth expected in 2021 as many consumers choose to invest in their home entertainment systems for premium content. Never before have first-run movies been released by streaming platforms at the same time as their theater debut, like Godzilla vs. Kong, which premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre and HBO Max last month. Even though we’re finally seeing theaters open up, people have discovered the joy and simplicity of watching blockbuster movies at home,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. “TCL’s XL Collection represents this next stage in the TV industry – large-size, powerful televisions that deliver premier movie-going experiences in the comfort and safety of your own living room – and we’re excited for users to get back that cinematic magic. Being one of only three global TV brands with full vertical integration, TCL continues to expand its big-screen production capacity to make the largest television screens with best-in-class imaging technology more accessible than ever. Thus, allowing TCL to maintain its status of number two selling brand of TVs in the United States and drive even more success.”
The QLED model brings a Variable Refresh Rate, 120Hz HDMI input support, and THX Certified Game Mode for a smooth gaming experience. It also boasts Contrast Control Zones technology which optimizes the image across individual zones for a striking contrast between light and dark areas. Additionally, it features support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG and Dolby Atmos.
