Hisense H8 (Hate) Series of 4K Televisions

Recently, Hisense announced that its new H8 Series of televisions would begin shipping immediately. First revealed at CES 2016, the H8 Series offers over 8-million megapixels in addition to High Dynamic Range (HDR) functionality and dynamic range operability reaching 1.07 billion colors. If you’ve been following the 4K revolution, then you undoubtedly know that HDR is a game changer far more impactful than 4K resolution alone. Hisense offers HDR at ridiculously low prices.

The HDR functionality of this set is that it can read the HDR10 Metadata and remap it to the TV's capabilities... which are unconfirmed but most likely close to Re709. This is like saying I have an Atmos AVR because it can read the data but it just down scales it to 5.1.

We are going to see more TV's like this as they will be sold as HDR TV's but at a low price.

Welcome to the wonderful world of marketing... I think I will pass on this one.
