With the advent of relatively affordable consumer-grade projectors, the days of regular flat-panel TVs, from LSD to OLED, seemed to be numbered. Why limit yourself to the dimensions of the matrix, if you can hang a white screen of almost any size and point the projector at it? But in reality, everything turned out to be not so simple. The main problem was the placement of the device itself. For example, if the TV or screen is in front of the sofa, it is not entirely clear where the projector should be located. If you place it on a wall or ceiling, the wires will hang down and spoil the view. In addition, hearing the hum of the ventilation system above your head (and it is needed to cool the internal components of very hot lenses and mechanisms) is a so-so pleasure.
But technology does not stand still. Instead of traditional projectors, home electronics developers have proposed a laser TV. In fact, this is a combination: a laser projector with an ultra-wide angle lens and a special screen. The fundamental difference is that the image-forming device itself is located a couple of tens of centimeters from the screen, or, more simply, under the screen on the pedestal. You don't need to find a separate place for it!
Hisense Laser TV L5F is capable of providing an image in 4K Ultra HD resolution on a screen with a diagonal of 100 to 120 inches, in my case it's just a 120-inch top) I took it with a New Year's discount)
The main component of this system is a projector with a blue laser light source. It allows you to create a picture on the screen with an incredible brightness of 2700 lumens and a contrast ratio of 2000:1. Putting these figures into more understandable categories, the image will be perfectly visible even in daylight, and in terms of colors and contrast it will not be inferior to the best models of traditional TVs. It makes no sense to talk about such usual TV parameters as viewing angles in relation to the Hisense Laser TV L5F. Because here the picture is not the result of the glow of the LEDs in the matrix, but a naturally formed image on the surface. Reflected light strains our eyes much less, while the picture is clearly visible from any angle. It was this factor that played the main role in my choice of this particular TV, since a baby was born and it’s better to watch cartoons on a reflected screen, it’s not so bright and your eyes will be intact!) And of course, the screen size of 120 inches pleases! In the evenings, like in a VIP cinema)
The laser TV shows both in 4K and in lower resolutions. In this case, the upscaling algorithm is used. At the same time, when viewing in 4K, there is a nuance that there are delays.
When I first encountered this, I thought that something was wrong with the player, but when transferring the broadcast through HDMI, not as a screen display, but transferring the display of the 2nd screen, the problem was gone.
As befits a premium segment device, the Hisense Laser TV L5F has support for many modern image enhancement technologies, in particular, high dynamic range HDR, and MEMC clarity enhancement.
The laser light source is very durable. Hisense determined its resource at 25,000 hours - sounds like a lot, but how much is that in years? On the day my TV works for 3 hours - a maximum of 4, thus 1460 hours a year and, accordingly, a little more than 17 years! For me, this is a lot) And most likely the apartment in which I live will change and the question of updating will arise much earlier)
By the way, since the device uses a laser machine, the manufacturer thought about safety. Still, the device is installed on a pedestal, and it may well occur to someone (especially children) to look into the window where the light comes from. In this case, a proximity sensor is installed in the Hisense Laser TV L5F. If he notices that someone has come too close to the device, the brightness of the image demonstration drops and warns that if you do not leave, it will automatically stop after 5 seconds.
The design and execution of the projector of the Hisense Laser TV L5F system, in my opinion, does not reach the premium models of audio / video equipment, but are close)
Of great importance is the special layout of the system. If in the case of a conventional TV located on the wall, you have to pull the wires from the outlet and the signal source, then this is not necessary. After all, the picture is displayed on the screen, which has no electronic filling. Cables are only suitable for the projector on the cabinet.
The screen is made using ALR technology, that is, it has a multi-layer structure, which allows you to avoid the appearance of stray light and provide high image contrast.
Below I will give a number of photos of the installation of this miracle of the screen, I will tell you this is really not an easy task, since the screen comes in the package.
This is a box only from the screen
Comes with installation diagram
I must have faced the problem of the inability to add more photos, and I really have a lot of them, while everything is on point, I will write to Revain support and continue later) I hope for the understanding of the community)
I thank the Revaine community for their loyal approach to the requests of the authors, increased the volume of photos in the review from 10 to 20!
assembled the frame, unfolded the screen canvas, and put the frame on top of the canvas.
the canvas is attached to special spring hooks, the kit includes a special tool, also in the form of a hook, for stretching and attaching springs to special holes on the canvas.
The screen frame is hung on two fasteners with an adjustment mechanism in the form of screws to align the screen horizontally.
After the canvas is attached to all the spring hooks (I even have a couple left in stock), the screen rim is attached, made of black matte metal material.
The canvas is special, made in such a way as to display the image emitted from the TV as much as possible, and to minimize extraneous noise.
Hisense Laser TV made in China)
You can search for the movies and series you want using the remote control. The remote, by the way, is quite elegant, fits comfortably in the hand, aluminum - this feels premium. At the top there are number keys that can be used to switch channels, at the bottom there are navigation, functions and buttons for direct access to Netflix, Youtube and Prime Video services
Hisense Laser TV L5F - innovations of the future
Laser TVs are still a curiosity, but in the near future they may well compete with traditional premium models. In fact, they combine the best qualities of two types of devices: projectors and TVs:
- Careful reflected image for the eyes.
- Convenient place for TV under the screen.
- Possibility of simple installation of a large size screen 100-120 inches.
- There is no chance of pixel burnout and lamp burnout as such, since there are none!
- Resource 17 and more years!
Hisense Laser TV - have you heard of this? This is, indeed, an innovative novelty, which has not yet managed to become popular and mass. It's more than just a projector. And what is interesting about it? With the advent of relatively affordable...
