Launch of Three New Product Series with Distinct Brand Positioning

TCL Multimedia's launch of the X/C/P series precisely aims at satisfying and exploring the needs of the consumer. The X series, or XESS, utilises sophisticated technology and aesthetics to target elite families that pursue quality and luxury. The C series, also known as Cityline, based on the sense of modernity that drives cosmopolitan fashion, targets the middle-class family consumers who aspire to refined and tasteful living. The P series, representing Popular, created with trendiness and high cost-performance value in mind, brings the best experience to the masses that seek quality. These three new product series combined advanced technology and innovative design to make known to consumers worldwide the strength of a Chinese brand in creating high-end top products, and led the development of the industry worldwide.

While the target consumer groups of the three product series are diverse, they have all incorporated TCL's "Little T" artificial intelligence (A.I.) technology. Formulated as a solution to the issues of inconvenience in interaction, difficulties in obtaining content, and the lack of interconnectedness in smart products, the "Little T" A.I. technology actualises the control of television without a remote control. This technology also offers users direct access to the content they require and personalised content recommendation, so that users can enjoy the best quality audiovisual content with the simplest maneuver.

Cutting-edge Technology Illustrates the Spirit of Craftsmanship

Artificial intelligence is expanding across the globe and making an impact to people's life at all levels. As a leading television manufacturer in research & development in the world, TCL Multimedia implements the innovative technology to its new products, as well as boosts the investment in the R&D field and explores the A.I. technology.

The debut of the 85-inch Quantum X6 XESS Private Theatre is not only equipped with Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range technology, but also used stable and reliable inorganic quantum dot materials. The X6 XESS also has high color gamut, capacity, chromaticity and duration, which results in extreme display quality. In addition, X6 series products adopted Local Dimming 600 partitioned backlight control technology and realised a 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and installed with the QUHD display quality engine exclusively developed by TCL Multimedia, encompassing three core technologies - highly sensitive color control, high brightness control, and smart local light control. The X6 product series is the first batch of top-tier televisions supporting 12 sound channels with Dolby Atoms DTS: X audio technology and Harman Kardon 7.1.4 audio system, bringing the users enjoyment of high-end private cinema.

The C5 City Bluetone television has a thin 9.9 mm body with a +5.6mm seamless metal framework, and an integrated screwless backboard, which illustrates flawless beauty in 360 degrees. In terms of audio quality, C5 is equipped with Harman Kardon audio system, thereby combining aesthetics with acoustics. The P6 Ultra High-definition Thin television has a super narrow framework with a width of 4.88 width and a body width of 7.99 mm. The integrated craft and perfect design demonstrates the art and beauty of simplicity.

Germany is one of the manufacturing centres in the world and widely recognised as the role model of craftsmanship. By introducing the TCL branded products to the world at IFA, Chairman of TCL Corporation Mr. Li Dong Sheng, said, "Technology innovation is the core of our corporate development.
