Selected Features

VA Panel

Hisense 65R8F5 has a vertical alignment (VA) panel which is most commonly used in LCD TVs as it provides deeper blacks compared to the IPS panel. However, it is still limited with the viewing angle compared to the IPS panel or OLED display.


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.
