Android Central @ CES

In Las Vegas at CES Hisense announced their all new VIDAA series Smart TV's, which happen to be powered by Android. The VIDAA series will come in three different size LED models, a 50, 55, and 65 and will be bringing users an experience that simply does not exist in this category of products so far. Featuring multi-core processing and a very simple and elegant yet powerful user interface, Hisense was able to pack a ton of great features right inside your television.

“Hisense has boldly re-invented the concept of Smart TV with the VIDAA series. By combining a sleek and elegant look with the most intuitive UI and innovative remote control, our television is no longer just Smart – it’s simply brilliant,” said Jonathan Frank, Vice President of Marketing, Hisense USA.

With ease you will be able to jump between Video On Demand, Applications, Live TV and the Media Center, as well as utilize the built in Wifi to hop on Chrome and browse the web if you wanted. In addition the VIDAA series will support screen sharing so you can easily show pictures, videos or play music right from your mobile device to the television set.

Hisense has stated that the VIDAA series will be available starting in March 2014, but unfortunately they have not given a starting price point at this time. The VIDAA televisions will be on display at CES so be sure to stay tuned to our live CES coverage to see if we can get a little eyes on time with one of these.

HISENSE TRANSFORMS SMART TV EXPERIENCE WITH THE VIDAA SERIES

Las Vegas, NV, January 6, 2014 – Hisense today introduced the VIDAA series TV, a full-featured Android-powered SMART TV with multi-core processing and a stunningly simple, elegant and immensely powerful User Interface (UI). VIDAA redefines the current Smart TV landscape with a vastly improved user experience that does not yet exist in the product category.

The VIDAA series TV Full HD lineup will be available in March 2014 and features three ultra slim LED models, the 65H7 (65-inch), 55H7 (55-inch) and 50H7 (50-inch).

VIDAA simplifies and enhances a passive, lean-back consumer experience with intuitive channel “jumping” across four content experiences: Live TV, Video On Demand, Media Center, and Applications. VIDAA has built-in WiFi, a Chrome™ browser and also supports screen sharing – enabling pictures, videos and music to be simply shared right to your TV screen from most mobile devices. It also features a 30-button remote control with the most sophisticated built-in air mouse technology, a pop up virtual keyboard and astounding natural voice control.

“Hisense has boldly re-invented the concept of Smart TV with the VIDAA series. By combining a sleek and elegant look with the most intuitive UI and innovative remote control, our television is no longer just Smart – it’s simply brilliant,” said Jonathan Frank, Vice President of Marketing, Hisense USA.

Hisense is providing the global consumer electronics community and end-users across the world with the best-balanced coupling of connectivity, functionality and image performance with the VIDAA series. Users can easily navigate content experiences and view them uninterrupted as they slide into view. This new type of user interface was designed to align with the passive nature of the 10-foot, lean back experience, which favors a consumption-friendly experience over complicated interaction.

I'm waiting for the article "Hisense starts Android 4.3 update for the Sero 7 Pro"

It was promised for last year. Come on...
Rant over.

I've seen these at Sam's club, but I've not heard of this brand. I get nervous about straying from well established brands. Not that they don't have their issues as well. This is cool and I am excited to see a review soon hopefully!

I mostly see HiSense tvs at Walmart. I have a feeling Android is going to become much, much more common place than it already is in the coming year or two!

This is interesting as all the rumors of Google TV becoming Android TV. In the last paragraph it talks about screen sharing which could be miracast but also Chromecast + the rumored screen sharing in Android. Sounds exciting!

>"three different size LED models"

They are LCD, like most all TV's and monitors are. We don't call florescent backlit TVs "florescent TVs" (I am tilting at windmills, I know)

Actually Hisense has been around for a very long time, and the sheer majority of people have seen their TV's and products before under well known brand names like LG, Hitachi, Whirlpool and others. Remember only a few actual companies make display panels.

Hope they don't shoot themselves in the foot by only selling these at Walmart... behind all the other brands, like Walmart does with their tablets.

I was under the impression that any tv paired with a cheap android tv stick will do the same job.

What is different about this?
