TCL is excited to announce that the 8-Series is now available for pre-order exclusively at Best Buy. Designed to deliver brilliant black and captivating color, 8-Series brings a new dimension of clarity, color, and contrast to your home theater.

Shown earlier this year at CES before being formally announced in August, the 8-Series features Quantum Contrast technology and is the world’s first TV with mini-LED backlight technology. With Quantum Contrast technology, 8-Series delivers a new standard in TV performance with more than 25,000 individual high-performance mini-LEDs powering the 75” model.

This first-to-market technology allows the 8-Series to produce brilliant whites shining next to deep blacks and now sets a new benchmark for LCD TVs to directly take on high-contrast OLED TVs in delivering a superior overall viewing experience. This technology also yields improved total TV brightness, a substantial increase in highly precise Contrast Control Zones, as well as smooth, uniform and bright illumination.

No Compromises

Quantum Contrast is made of approximately 1,000 control zones – more zones than some of the highest-performance TVs in the market. The addition of high-performance mini-LED backlight technology allows for precise local dimming and greatly improves picture performance and minimizes unwanted artifacts, such as “halos,” associated with other LED-LCD TVs.

Not only does the 8-Series deliver excellent dark room viewing, but Quantum Contrast ensures delivery of enhanced black-level performance and outstanding bright room viewing. So, you’ll always have the best viewing experience in your home theater.

Wide Color Powered by QLED

The 8-Series also features Quantum Dot (QLED) color technology for wider and more vibrant performance. With a measured 100% color volume in the DCI-P3 Hollywood reference color space, the QLED color technology in the 8-Series delivers deeply saturated reds, stunning greens and spectacular blues without the limitations of lower color volume or shorter life found in other color technologies.

While TCL has a long history using QLED technology, launching the world’s first big-screen TV with Quantum Dot in China over five years ago, the launch of 8-Series and 6-Series TVs with QLED brings a new level of cinematic performance to the US market.

Smart TV, Only Smarter

In addition, 8-Series is equipped with TCL’s AiPQ Engine which uses machine-learning algorithms to optimize color, contrast and clarity for an unrivaled 4K HDR experience. AiPQ Engine features three core picture quality algorithms:

  • Smart HDR – 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.
  • Smart 4K Upscaling – Improved clarity and sharpness of lower-resolution video is optimized using a unique machine-learning process that corrects the errors commonly introduced in less advanced 2-dimensional resolution enhancement technologies.
  • Smart Contrast – Contrast Control Zone performance is optimized to enhance the dramatic, sharp transitions between the brightest whites and darkest blacks, while still minimizing unwanted halo effects.

Combined with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, you can be certain that movies, TV shows, and games, will come alive with breathtaking realism.
