Hisense launches Ultra HD TV range in Australia

Nic Healey can usually be found on a couch muttering about aspect ratios and 7.1 channel sound - which is helpful given that he's the home entertainment guy at CNET.

The 4K/Ultra HD (UHD) market in Australia is getting a boost, with Chinese brand Hisense launching three new models, as promised late last year.

The company's flagship is the 84-inch XT900, an edge-lit LED panel with a 3840x2160 resolution. The XT900 has built-in Wi-Fi, time shifting and PVR functions, as well as #D and smart TV functionality.

Joining it are the 65-inch and 58-inch versions of the XT880. These feature similar panel technology to the XT900, although not quite as bright (400 nit versus 420 nit), but with a higher contrast ratio (5000:1 versus 1600:1).

The XT880 runs Opera software for its smart TV offering and web browser. Wi-Fi is also built in, along with the same time-shifting and PVR functions as the XT900.

At the moment, there's no pricing on the range or timing for when they'll be in retail. The Hisense TVs will join 4K/UHD TVs from LG, Sony and Samsung in Australia, with more manufacturers expected to follow suit during 2013.

These Hisense TVs will help push Ultra HD TV prices down.

Being able to afford one may not be as far off as I thought.
