Hisense: How to Play the Three Cards of High-quality Growth

QINGDAO, China, Dec. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On December 18th, Fisher Yu, SVP of Hisense, delivered a keynote speech at Hisense Global Partner Conference, announcing that Hisense will continue establishing a technological product range spanning LCD, laser display, and LED to provide a full display system solution around the home, business, and vehicle.Fisher Yu, SVP of Hisense

Hisense Improves itself in  a Comprehensive Approach

Hisense, as the leading company in the globe, is not merely a single TV product manufacturer, but a researcher and an all-scene system display solution provider.

Over the past few years, Hisense has always believed that the competition for TVs is all-encompassing. Therefore, besides the display technology, Hisense has also been striving to be excellent in multiple aspects, including audio quality, content, user interface, industrial design, and AIOT, expanding its product layout and pushing the boundaries of its technological development.

Hisense’s Three Engines of High-Quality Growth

According to Yu, Hisense’s display technology has been upgraded to a brand-new level through decades of research and development, and there are three crucial aspects of its rapid and high-quality growth.

The upgrading ULED technology features most prominently in Hisense’s steady growth because it has brought TV picture quality to a new level. Hisense successfully released a new generation of display technology platform ULED X and its flagship product U8H. This high-end product contains the 8K AI PQ processor and the first 16-bit light control algorithm in the industry, allowing the product to achieve three times environmental contrast and twice the dynamic range of OLED TV.

The Path of ULED Development

The global debut of 8K Laser TV at the Global Partner Conference, represents another driver of Hisense’s advancement. Data from Omdia shows that Hisense owns 51% of the market in Laser TV sales from January to September this year, ranking TOP 1 in the world. Besides, thanks to the close coordination with upstream and downstream partners in the supply chain, Hisense has advanced the industry from 2K to 4K, and now to 8K, creating the most watching-friendly and impressive Laser TV.

Hisense’s widening product layout in LED technology has also contributed to its fast development. As Yu announced, in the popular Micro LED field, Hisense independently developed two series of LED direct display products, “Vision One” and “Vision X”, which largely promoted changes in product technology and product experience.

As the pioneer of the industry, Hisense is also committed to sustainable and low-carbon development. Its dedication to low-carbon and green living is applied to the entire process of product development, manufacturing, and recycling. For example, Hisense’s 100-inch Laser TV consumes about 1/3 to 1/2 the power of a conventional LCD TV of the same size.

Self-innovation is always the core concept that runs through Hisense’s brand development. In the future, Hisense will continue to promote the development of display technology, drive industrial upgrading through innovation and create a new benchmark for high-end TVs.

“The Shape of Culture” Season 3 Returns for a Journey Exploring the Street Life of World Heritage Sites

BEIJING, Dec. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The third season of the much-anticipated cultural reality show “The Shape of Culture: China in the Heritage Sites” will return to Zhejiang Satellite Television on December 18th. This brand-new season focuses on the stories and tales of ordinary people who are the protectors and inheritors of World Heritage in China.

Co-produced by Guo Wen Culture, Zhejiang Satellite Television, and Tencent Video, the third season of “The Shape of Culture” is themed “telling the World Heritage stories with warmth,” and will tell how people carry on promoting World Heritages in Chinese culture through depicting the street life of World Heritage Sites, showing stories of people dedicated to preserving the World Heritage and presenting different facets of heritage to the audience.

“The Shape of Culture,” launched in 2021, aims to inspire more young people to start their own journeys of cultural exploration and discovery, treasure the profound aspects of Chinese culture and play a positive role in guarding world cultural heritage.

The Three Lanes and Seven Alleys: the Culture and Spirit across 1,000 years

The Three Lanes and Seven Alleys in Fujian Province is one of the larger-scale and well-preserved historical and cultural districts in China. It’s known as the “living fossil of China’s urban lifang (urban unit) system” and “museum of Chinese Ming and Qing Dynasty architectures.” The “youth troupe” will explore the district in two groups to answer two questions from their personal experience: why do we protect the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys? what have these cultural heritage brought to people in today’s society?

It’s widely acknowledged that one can discover half of China’s modern and contemporary history in the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys, where a great number of influential people who left indelible imprints on China’s development once lived. These historical figures include  Yan Fu, “the first Chinese to master Western studies;” and Lin Juemin, a patriotic revolutionary who wrote the greatest love letter of the 20th century and so on.

The “youth troupe” will follow Zheng Guozhen, deputy director of China Cultural Relics Academy, and Xu Lingyi, associate editor-in-chief of “HOMELAND” magazine, to trace the stories of well-known historic figures of Fujian in the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys.

Shan Jixiang, director of China Cultural Relics Academy, who served as the curator of the Palace Museum in Beijing between 2012 and 2019, and Tang Jiuzhou and Chen He, members of the “youth troupe”, will take on the challenge of learning Wing Chun, a classic martial art style and China’s national intangible cultural heritage. But before they get started, they must “memorize and recite” the doctrine of Wing Chun and understand its culture and philosophy of life.

“The Shape of Culture” goes against the stereotype of promoting world heritage sites over the three seasons. Hence, people can gain fresh insights into these cultural icons through captivating tales and touching stories.  At the same time, the show also explores how world heritage  influence people’s everyday lives. The show portrays how people get to experience the World Heritage and carry on this treasured aspect of Chinese traditional culture and the unique emotional connections that are made along the way.

In addition to the Three Lanes and Seven Alleys in Fujian, the third season will visit a total of 12 World Heritage sites and destinations across China including The Great Wall in Beijing; the Historic Centre of Macao; Liling of Hunan Province; and Qufu of Shandong Province.
