A number of new 4K Ultra HDTVs (in the Diamond line) and 1080p Full HD TVs (in the Emerald line) were announced at the show by Amtran/JVC. The DM65USRLCD is a 65-inch, 4K set favorably reviewed in our February/March 2015 issue (right in photo). There's also a 55-inch Diamond model at $899 and a new 85-incher (left), expected to hit stores later this month at the remarkable price of $7,500.
Haier is a Chinese brand less well known here than TCL or Hisense, much less Vizio, Samsung, or Sony. It did show some very nice looking sets in a large, tastefully decorated booth, but like Changhong above, it needs to increase its market presence significantly before most consumers will recognize its name.
LG demonstrated its newly designed Web OS 2 that will be available on their 2015 TVs. Web OS has a number of new streaming partners and will now include integration when connected to your set top box. Users will be able to display program guides from their TV provider and control a connected set top box then quickly switch to other apps including online streaming services.
