TVs are always a big deal at CES, with manufacturers pushing ever crazier combinations of visual technology into eye-catching prototypes and future production devices. But aside from the dizzying visual tech on show from the likes of Sony and Samsung, Chinese manufacturer Hisense has been showing off its new Vidaa smart TV platform, based on Android, with full Google Play support.
Vidaa runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with all the accompanying apps you'd expect, only framed around a more TV-friendly interface, controlled through a standard remote. A series of panels for your own content, apps and streaming services allow you to easily navigate through the UI, and there's a traditional app grid view too, along with a slide-out bar for controlling your inputs. There's also built-in support for video on-demand from YouTube, Google Play Movies + TV, Crackle, Netflix, Amazon and Vudu.
Check out our video walkthrough after the break for an in-depth look.
