The company’s websites are reporting traffic gains as well, with visits up 50 percent, totaling 45 million uniques per month. Also encouraging for the company is improved performance of its struggling U.S. division. “In the U.S. we continue to make strong progress and are close to returning to profitability,” says the company in its interim statement.

CES 2019 Hisense goes higherend with better Roku TVs and 4K laser

first_img TVs Hisense’s latest “laser TV” is a massivve screen paired with a short-throw projector and wireless sub. Hisense It’s not easy bringing a new brand name into the US TV market. Televisions are expensive and last a long time, and people tend to want a name they can trust.Hisense, one of the TV brands in domestic China, is a less-familiar name to Americans than even TCL, a fellow Chinese brand that has become increasingly successful in the US. For its 2019 lineup, Hisense is taking a page from TCL by improving the picture quality of some of the most popular kinds of TVs: those that use Roku’s operating system. It also introduced a new all-in-one laser “TV” (er, projector) and a few other bits of intriguing TV tech. Here’s the rundown.hisense-r8-frontHisense R8 Roku TV with Dolby Vision and local dimming.R8 series Roku TV: On paper this set looks like a serious rival to TCL’s 6 series, CNET’s favorite TV for the money, which combines Roku’s superb smart TV system with the picture quality chops of full-array local dimming. The R8 has a healthy 64 zones of dimming on the 65-inch size, wide color gamut, 700 nits of brightness and Dolby Vision, all for less than the TCL 6 series. Shipping “later in 2019” the 55-inch size costs $600 and the 65 an aggressive $750. H8F series Android TV: This set offers all of the picture quality features of the R8 but with Google Android TV smart system instead of Roku’s. Google Assistant voice control is built-in and the set also works with Amazon Alexa. It will launch in May 2019 starting at $400 for the 50-inch and up to $750 for the 65-inch.H9F and U9F series Android TVs: These step-up models offer improved image quality specs, thanks to quantum dot technology. The H9F (May, $700 for 55-inch and $1,000 for the 65-inch) has 150 dimming zones and gets up to 1,000 nits in brightness, while the U9F (June, available only in a 75-inch size for $3,500) has a whopping 1,000+ zones and 2,200 nits of peak brightness. hisense-u9-frontThe 75-inch Hisense U9 claims more than 1,000 dimming zones. Hisense 100- and 120-inch 4K laser short-throw projector systems: Hisense bests on previous gigantic “TVs” — actually projection systems that consist of the screen, a projector that can sit very close to the wall, and a sound system — by adding a new dual-color laser light engine for improved color. The screens are designed to work well in bright lighting and the sound system is built into the projector, augmented by a wireless subwoofer. Alexa support is built in, available via the voice remote. Pricing was not announced, but for reference the 2018 100-inch setup was $10,000.Beyond those shipping products Hisense also talked up some of its more future-looking tech.hisense-sonic-one-backThe backside of the Hisense One, said to be the thinnest 65-inch TV in the industry. Hisense ULED XD: Hisense likes to call its high-end sets “ULED” (don’t ask me what it stands for) so this variation is called “Extreme Detail.” It’s an all-new LCD panel design that “layers a 1080p module displaying a grayscale image between a full array LED backlight and a 4K module displaying a full color image.” Hisense claims improved dynamic range, brightness (2,900 nits), and “unsurpassed” black levels. I’m intrigued to check it out in person.4K RGB laser TV: An improvement on its laser projection tech that uses three separate lasers, one each for red, green and blue. The result, according to Hisense, is up to 98 percent of the Rec 2020 wide color gamut.Hisense One Design: Billed as the “thinnest-self contained 65-inch television in the industry,” the set ranges from less than 1/4-inch at its thinnest to 1 inch at its thickest point. And the screen itself acts like a speaker, similar to some OLED TVs.

Grittys hospital visit with a 7yearold fan is beautiful and wholesome

first_img 0 Comments Share your voice Tags When a 7-year-old in hospital asks for something, you give it to him. If that something happens to be orange nightmare fuel, you still give it to him. That fuel in question is Gritty, the hairy, googly eyed mascot of the Philadelphia Flyers in the National Hockey League. He’s also, in many ways a treasure of the internet. CNN has documented a rare Gritty appearance off the ice, at Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia on Tuesday.There, Gritty and two Flyers cheerleaders, paid a surprise visit to Caiden O’Rourke, who as a result of two rare conditions has suffered the amputation of his lower right leg. A double amputee suffering a bone deformity, O’Rourke regularly requires new prosthetics. He requests them to be adorned with the colors and logos of his local favorite teams, according to CNN, and his latest design involved of course a big orange hairy monster.After O’Rouke was fitted with the custom prosthetic, Gritty himself appeared and a moment beautiful and wholesome was captured. This may surprise those initially skeptical of the mascot whose wild-eyed mug debuted last September for a team that had been mascotless since the ’70s. Aren’t they glad they took a chance on their furry, left-field chum. A 7-year-old hockey fan wanted a prosthetic leg with Gritty’s face on it, so the googly-eyed Philadelphia Flyers mascot surprised him by delivering it himself https://t.co/21UmioS0tE pic.twitter.com/UmRhFS6hEh— CNN (@CNN) June 26, 2019 Culture Sportslast_img read more

More trouble for Samsung as South Korean prosecutors seek arrest of company

first_imgSamsung Group chief Jay Y. Lee appears to be in trouble as the South Korean special prosecutors’ office on Monday said that it is seeking a warrant for his arrest. Prosecutors have accused Lee of giving millions of dollars in bribes to President Park Geiun-hye’s close friend.Samsung Group leader Jay Y. Lee arrives for bribery suspicion questioningThe Samsung chief was questioned by investigators last week for nearly 22 hours straight for his involvement in an alleged corruption scandal which led to Geun-hye’s impeachment in parliament last month.Lee has been accused by special prosecutors’ office of paying bribes worth $36.42 million to Choi Soon-sil, a friend of the president who is at the centre of the corruption scandal. Lee has also been accused of embezzlement and perjury.A hearing would be reportedly held at 0:30 a.m. (0130 GMT) on Wednesday to decide whether to approve the arrest warrant or not, Seoul’s central district court said.”The special prosecutors’ office, in making this decision to seek an arrest warrant, determined that while the country’s economic conditions are important, upholding justice takes precedence,” Lee Kyu-chul, a spokesperson for the office, told a media briefing, according to Reuters reports.Samsung also released a statement saying that it can not accept the accusations made against Lee. “It is difficult to understand the special prosecutors’ decision,” an email statement said. The prosecutors are investigating the possible connection between Samsung’s support for a business and foundations backed by Choi and of National Pension Service’s (NPS) 2015 decision to back a controversial $8 billion merger of two Samsung Group affiliates– Samsung C and T Corp and Cheil Industries Inc. The NPS chairman Moon Hyung-pyo was reportedly indicted on Monday on charges of giving false testimony and abuse of power. Park Geiun-hye was impeached last month in the parliament where members of her own party voted against her in the National Assembly motion. There have been massive protests against Park recently with thousands taking to the streets demanding her ouster. Her relationship with close friend, Choi Soon-sil reportedly led to Choi’s increase in influence and financial benefits.last_img read more
