Evan Wang, the Head of TV Department at Hisense Middle East, speaks to Review Central about the all-new L5 Laser TV. He explains the key features that set the L5 Laser TV apart from other consumer-based display solutions, how it impacts our viewing experience, and the customizations that allow consumers to personalise the product.
Could you tell us more about the special features of the Hisense L5 Laser TV and how is it different from a standard LCD television?
The L5 Laser TV from Hisense is an absolute showstopper, thoughtfully designed for an immersive cinematic viewing experience at home, that keeps one enthralled by its fascinating features:
Immersive large screen experience with 4K resolution and rich colours make your living room feel like a cinema hall: With the 100-inch super large screen and pure laser light 4K resolution, the Laser TV delivers life-like picture projection that has rich and vibrant colours similar to what we experience at a cinema hall. Users do not have to worry about the interference of an ambient light anymore as the Laser TV comes with ambient light rejecting (ALR) technology, making it a perfect choice for your living room.
Eye friendly makes your life healthy: As looking directly at the sun can cause damage to your eyes, in a similar manner, looking at your LED TV screen for a prolonged period of time can have the same effect, if not worse. LED TV screens emit a light that can cause damage to one’s eyes over a long stretch of screentime.
The L5 series Laser TV is also endorsed by the prestigious TÜV Rheinland certification of low blue light emissions: This is one of the most important features of Laser TV which is especially important if you have kids in the house who love their TV time or even adults who love to binge-watch OTT content. Laser TV makes it safe for long hours of TV viewing. Also, when it comes to immersive viewing, feature of ‘eye friendly’ is crucial because without the product being eye-friendly, you cannot enjoy a super large screen from a short distance.
With SMART TV and VIDAA OS: You can find your favourite content more easily, making your family time a fun time. Apart from a whole new immersive 4K TV viewing experience, the 100L5 Laser TV is equipped with a smart system ‘VIDAA’ that showcases comprehensive content through key OTT platforms including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime, VIP Shahid, OSN, and other more popular video apps, making it a total entertainment hub at home.
We provide the solutions for beautiful home interior design: Along with entertainment solutions, Hisense creates distinctive imagery of Laser TV through its modern sleek and lush designs. This model is designed to suit every home interior, the customizable golden frame converts the TV into a piece of art on the wall wherein customers can choose a picture of their liking for the canvas. The Hisense L5 Laser TV is also supported with a customizable smart cabinet that keeps the console hidden unless you are watching TV. Moreover, the 100-inch Laser TV is light weighted, just 25kgs, as opposed to 100-inch LED TV’s that usually weigh anywhere between 100-120kgs.

The crowd loved the picture and sound quality while watching their favourite teams battling it out on the field.
We have been told that Hisense will provide a supporting frame and cabinet for users in UAE if requested. Could you tell us more about that?
This customization is the most endearing add-on for customers in the Middle East region. Most of the customers require not just smart but modern TV that fits right with the home interiors. In order to provide the best possible solutions, we gave customers an option to customize their TV screen with a supporting frame that can have a picture of their choice. Not only is the frame customizable, but we also have a smart cabinet available in two colours (chestnut and white) for customers selection.
The tailored feature is perfect for customers as it hides their black TV screen behind a beautiful wall frame with images of their choice.
