Optimised and improved user experience
2021 will see a further upgrade to Hisense’s VIDAA Operating System with the launch of VIDAA U5. The latest version comes straight out of the blocks with a 20% improvement in speed*, making it even faster and easier to search and navigate. There’ll also be a lot more to navigate with the addition of new Australian and international apps. New built-in billing and payment functionality will allow consumers to subscribe and pay for access to third-party apps from the comfort of the VIDAA U5 home screen. With Google Assistant built-in and with vastly improved search functionality, users will be able to search, navigate and offer commands more easily than ever before. The new VIDAA U5 OS also sees the arrival of the VIDAA Smart Remote. This new addition sees improvements in connectivity, search and overall functionality.
Far-field voice technology
Far-field voice recognition technology gives users the ability to interact with their Hisense TV using voice commands and prompts from a distance of up to 10 metres**. The integration of four multidirectional microphones allows users to use normal tone of voice to turn on the TV, turn on lights, or interact with any Google Assistant compatible device from anywhere within earshot. Users can access various media types quickly and easily as well as performing searches and many other tasks.
