The marginal benefit of being close to each other is the result of the growing maturity of the Mini LED technology after continuous use and change. When the Mini LED technology is put in the TV field with the largest screen size, the most obvious feature of the technology sinking is the higher partition, finer picture control, and the pricing system that we are most concerned about. To be able to enjoy the dividend brought by the popularization of technology, as a mass consumer, is something we love to hear and see.
If you want to take advantage of the June boost to enjoy the marginal benefits of Mini LED in advance, TCL Q10G, which has just been released, can be one of our best choices.
The more zones, the higher the contrast, the better the viewing effect, and the relationship between zoning and picture quality is obvious to all. The number of divisions of TCL Q10G is placed in the current televisions of the same size and at the same price, which can be said to be the existence of the top stream. Take our 75-inch version as an example, it uses Mini LED micron dot matrix light control technology, consists of 90 sets of driver chips composed of 360 light control partitions, can achieve 1000nits and 10 million: 1 contrast image quality performance. In 55 inches, 65 inches and 85 inches, the number of partitions reached 240, 288 and 488, respectively, compared with other televisions. Adding the most partitions with the lowest price is the first step in TCL Q10G volumes.
In addition to the increase in the number of partitions, the production process of the backlight module of TCL Q10G has also been upgraded. Its Mini LED backlight module adopts the third generation POB lamp bead packaging technology, using pin flip, gold removal line, DBR color coating and other processes, which can not only make the current distribution more uniform, but also effectively reduce the thermal resistance. Reducing the heating performance of the lamp beads is very important for the Mini LED panel, which can not only effectively improve the current stability, thus increase the brightness uniformity, but also prolong the service life of the TV. 92% backlight uniformity and 30% heat dissipation are the benefits of Q10G's new panel process.
We have measured that the highest brightness of the Q10G Mini LED TV can reach 1065nits in the HDR content, while in the standard image mode, the brightness measured by several test points is also above 800nits.
The high brightness performance of Q10G is enough to provide good picture tension, but to pull up the contrast of the picture, the more important parameter is its dark brightness. The average brightness measured around the bright part, which is what we call the halo brightness, is 0.07nits, while the distant dark part is only 0.02nits.
This data is excellent for the Mini LED TVs we have tested, and the dark control ensures that there are no serious halo packages around the highlighted images.
For example, the subtitles that appear in the black scene, the high-brightness neon license plate lights and other pictures, the darkness and brightness can achieve a clear separation of light and shade.
Through a number of test clips, TCL Q10G's strategy for dark processing is not one-size-fits-all, more obviously tends to ease the transition, and will not limit the relationship between light and shade in the opposite picture. This treatment can increase the brightness of the dark part and increase the detail richness of the dark part.
Of course, the problem that the dark part of part of the scene is still slightly bright can only be detected in a dark environment. If you want to pursue the extremely dark effect of the black field, you can turn on the room light to watch the movie and eliminate the impact.
In addition to the backlit partition, the picture quality performance is also piled on the ceiling. TCL's latest Mini LED panel is used on Q10G, with a color gamut of 98% DCI-P3. Due to the blessing of the brand new generation accolade chip M1, Q10G can add a variety of AI algorithms to the picture quality adjustment, such as AI pixel reconstruction, AI dynamic compensation, etc., to improve the color tension, make the color transition more natural, and will not appear the phenomenon of color fault.
TCL Q10G is not only a Mini LED TV, but also a full-channel 4K120Hz high-brush TV, full-channel 4K120Hz, which means that from the screen to the chip, to the external transmission interface, as well as software algorithms, can meet the requirements of 4K120Hz. It is worth mentioning that Q10G uses a panel with 8ms response speed, which ensures the performance of 4K 120Hz.
Compared with previous TV systems, this time TCL Q10G adds a MEMC compensation option to the image setting to align non-120frame rate content with TV refresh rate by inserting black frame compensation to improve the sharpness of moving pictures. However, due to the addition of black frames, the overall picture brightness will be sacrificed, but for the highest brightness of the 1000nits, the overall brightness decline is still available. In the pursuit of high-definition and high-response scenes, such as playing left and right motion images, the vertical texture of the roof will be greatly improved.
Picture quality is the foundation of a TV, but as a TV that pursues the ratio of quality to price, a balanced product experience is particularly important. Under the dazzling results of the panel, the product experience of TCL Q10G determines the high rating of this TV, so the "bucket" experience has become the scoring point of Q10G. However, judging from the performance of other new TCL products this year, it is really difficult to get a low score.
