TCL 5-Series and 6-series Roku TVs

New 2020 4K TVs

TCL just released their budget priced 5-Series and 6-Series Roku TV models in screen sizes from 50- to 75-inches. For the first time, TCL’s 5-Series will join the 6-Series TV in boasting Quantum Dot (QLED) color technology to deliver better brightness and wider color volume. With a measured 100% color volume in the DCI-P3 Hollywood reference color space, QLED color technology will deliver deeply saturated reds, stunning greens and spectacular blues without the limitations of lower color volume or risks of shorter life found in other color technologies. Matching the format used by most cinema screens and content creators for exceptionally vivid and lifelike picture performance, there is a clear advantage to QLED color technology when combined with a powerfully bright TV.

TCL’s new 5- and 6-Series Roku TVs are engineered for superior 4K ultra HD picture clarity combined with the contrast, color, and detail of Dolby Vision™ HDR (High Dynamic Range) for the most lifelike picture. Additionally, both series will benefit from HDR Pro Pack, allowing consumers to enjoy a truly cinematic experience at home with striking brightness, incredible contrast, and amazingly lifelike color with support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, and HLG. 

Driven by machine-learning algorithms matched with vast knowledge in human visual perception, TCL’s AiPQ Engine™ optimizes color, contrast and clarity for an unrivaled 4K HDR experience. AiPQ Engine features three core picture quality algorithms – Smart HDR for vibrant color, Smart 4K Upscaling for sharp clarity and Smart Contrast for dramatic depth. Every video frame is carefully monitored and referenced to an AI curated library of high-quality video content to ensure delivery of maximum color accuracy and dynamic impact.

Roku Built-in

With access to 500,000+ movies and TV episodes through a simple, personalized home screen, the TCL Roku TV models are even more versatile with Easy Voice Control which allows compatibility with popular voice assistants to give users additional options to control the TV. Roku Search makes it easy to search across top streaming channels by title, actor, or director with results returned in order by price. In addition to the voice remote supplied with the 6-Series, the free Roku mobile app for iOS and Android smartphones or tablets offers a Roku remote with voice control, the ability to browse or add new channels, watch The Roku Channel on the go and even enjoy private listening through headphones. The Roku OS receives regular automatic software updates to add new features and functionality over time including most recently the new Live TV Channel Guide, available in The Roku Channel, which offers a convenient way to discover and watch live TV, Spanish language Roku voice support, visual search results for easy browsing and new voice commands including more playback from search partners and news related commands.

TCL 6-series Roku TV

TCL Roku TV 6-Series

TCL’s 6-Series Roku TV sits at the intersection of powerful picture performance and infinite entertainment and transforms the viewing experience by borrowing technology from the ultra-premium TCL 8-Series Roku TV. For the first time, the 6-Series will be available with thousands of micro-meter class mini-LED backlights for uncompromised contrast and brilliantly smooth illumination. This TCL-pioneered mini-LED backlight technology powers up to 240 Contrast Control Zones™ for brilliantly bright and deeply dark areas of the image, delivering unparalleled depth and dimension. TCL’s Contrast Control Zone technology optimizes the image across individual zones to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas. Combining stunning 4K HDR and mini-LED technology in a bold, brushed metal design for a superior TV experience, the 6-series also houses Quantum Dot technology and the HDR Pro Pack with Dolby Vision for greater brightness and contrast among a full palette of rich colors.

In addition to its striking design, the 6-Series is versatile and configurable for installation in any home theater or gaming room. Select screen sizes of the 6-Series offer 2-position configurable legs for use with longer or shorter TV furniture stands as well as easy cable management integrated into each TV leg. 

The TCL 6-Series TVs include Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos™ technologies for enhanced home theater performance. Dolby Vision dramatically expands the color palette and contrast range and uses dynamic metadata to automatically optimize the picture for every screen while Dolby Atmos audio technology transports you into the story with moving audio that flows all around you with breathtaking realism.  

Lastly, TCL’s 6-Series will be the world’s first TV with THX® Certified Game Mode. Building on decades of experience fine-tuning cinematic experiences, TCL and THX have partnered to define a new standard in big-screen gaming performance. Serious fast-twitch gamers will be thrilled by an impactful image without any compromise in ultra-low-latency gaming display. Combined with Variable Refresh Rate and Auto Game Mode features for a smoother, optimized gaming experience.
