E3 2018, the world’s premier event for video games, is finally here! The annual gaming extravaganza once again returns to Los Angeles for a week packed full of gaming news, reveals, and trailers.
This year’s E3 is also an exciting one for TCL as we make our first appearance ever on the show floor. With the launch of our new 6-Series, it was important for TCL to reinforce our strong reputation for picture quality and responsiveness by bringing gamers and fans a more immersive experience.
For the duration of the expo, TCL will be the Official TV of GameSpot’s booth (#4810) in the West Hall. This is an exciting way for us to showcase our latest 4K HDR TVs, which will be prominently featured throughout the booth to bring attendees closer to their entertainment. This will also include gaming stations where fans can play the latest titles and watch live stream broadcasts of the show, so fans don’t miss a minute of the action.
For over 20 years, GameSpot has covered the gaming industry and is one of the top destinations for gaming news, reviews, and video. E3 guests visiting the GameSpot booth can also enter exclusive TCL giveaways including the chance to win a TV and VIP passes to a local gaming event.
In addition to having a presence at E3, TCL will also be Title Sponsor of The E3 After Party at the iconic Yamashiro Restaurant hosted by FaZe Clan and Hollywood Esports on Wednesday, June 13. The VIP invite-only event will attract pro gamers, game publishers, other members of the esports community for what is expected to be, for the second year in a row, “the best E3 after party.” As the lead sponsor, TCL will be notably featured throughout the venue including TVs in a special lounge where guests can meet top FaZe Clan Pro Gamers. FaZe Clan is one of the biggest teams in esports, competing in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, FIFA and Fortnite Battle Royale tournaments, as well as the Call of Duty® World League (CWL).
Recently dubbed the Official TV of CWL, the esports league for the world’s top Call of Duty® players, TCL will culminate this week by engaging with fans at the CWL Anaheim Open on June 15–17. The tournament, which will be the final open before the 2018 CWL Championship, will feature over 160 teams from across the world battling it out for a share of the $200,000 prize pool. Prestige Pass holders will have access to the TCL Lounge, where fans can enjoy daily happy hour, giveaways, as well as an incredible view of the broadcast and tournament action on the latest 4K TCL Roku TVs with Dolby Vision HDR. Plus, TCL’s premium TVs will be present throughout the venue.
The new 6-Series is the successor to 2017’s award-winning P6-Series praised for its low input lag and impressive gaming performance, adding increased Contrast Control Zones – up from 72 Contrast Control Zones in the P6 to 96 zones for the 55” model and 120 zones for the 65” model – along with an innovative bold, brushed metal finish. The new 6-Series offers an exceptional viewing experience by featuring Dolby Vision HDR, vibrant wide color powered by TCL’s NBP (Nano Band Phosphor) Photon technology, a new iPQ Engine for controlled and precise color reproduction, and HDR Pro Gamma for impactful HDR performance in any environment.
E3 is the perfect venue for TCL to show our commitment to the gaming industry. Not only are we excited to be here, we’re also thrilled to be able to deliver premium televisions known for ultra-low input lag to this passionate, engaged community.
