Selected Features

QLED Display with VA Panel

Hisense 50H8G has a QLED display which is a LED backlight LCD display with additional semiconductor nanocrystal layer that can produce pure monochromatic red, green, and blue light. Quantum dot displays are capable of producing wider color gamut compared to OLED displays and can even achieve a full coverage of BT.2020 color gamut. And together with Vertical Alignment (VA) type panel their contrast is comparable to the OLED displays with nearly perfect black levels.

Full-Array Local Dimming

The TV has Full-Array Local Dimming technology with multiple zones throughout the display. Individual zones of LEDs can light up independently which enhances black levels, shadow details and decreases level of light bleed in dark parts of the image. This gives higher contrast with increased picture quality which is very important for HDR reproduction. Higher number of zones gives better control over local dimming and less blooming around the bright objects and subtitles.
