Mini LED, QLED, 2000 nits, Dolby Vision / Atmos 2.1.2 HDR10 + 144Hz and Goggle TV

TCL yesterday presented most of its audio-video range for 2022 upwards, and on the other hand increasingly larger screen diagonals, up to 98” (249 cm) for the C735 series. Pending its detailed presentation in a later news release, make way for the TCL C935 series, the most exclusive of the Ultra HD 4K series.

TCL C935 is available today for pre-order and the end of April in stores in two diagonals: 65 “(165 cm) and 75” (191 cm). As you can see from the pictures below, have televisions premium design, especially with an integrated soundbar, a titanium-colored metal finish and a central stand. The latter is adjustable in height, at the edge, plus or minus 3 centimeters.

TCL C935 New Mini LED OD5 Backlight System

Ultra HD 4K LCD 144 Hz model, the C935 TCL televisions are equipped with an advanced fourth-generation Mini LED system called OD5 (distance between the backlight system and the LCD panel of 5 mm). The panel is, of course, 10-bit native. In terms of zones, there are 1,080 for the 65 ” and 1.920 for the 75 ”, each with eight diodes. The total is 15,360 LEDs on the 75C935 and 65C935 8640 on.

TCL specifies that all of these diodes are strictly identical, in particular as regards performance (electrical efficiency, wavelength, power) in order to ensure a perfect homogeneity of the image, but also in colorimetric terms for total uniformity, and to the Demura effect against go (also called Clou Thing). ) Directly from the background lighting and no longer only on the LCD panel. Another clarification, which TCL is that the built-in LEDs extremely quickly change state, ie a shorter time than it takes to display an image, even with a signal of 120 hertz. This feature, called by TCL DirectDrive eliminates shadow problems moving objects.

Similarly, the LEDs provide the TCL C935 16-bit TVs ultra-precise control over the delivered luminosity, according to 6536 levels. This will take into account the smallest variations of the image and reproduced on the screen for more realism. Lastly, TCL that the diodes of the C935-screens are no longer square but round with a view to a better control of the generated light and to the significant reduction of the halo phenomenon (blooming) which is still visible on the Mini LED diffusers.

In total, the backlighting system of TCL C935 televisions therefore includes five major technical developments for a display quality that was heralded as unprecedented by the brand. And it must be admitted that the first demonstrations are convincing with a result extremely close to the OLED, especially in the axis with no visible trace of Blooming (still present off-axis but greatly reduced compared to, for example, the C825 TVs) .
