TCL to Bring State-of-the-Art LCD Display Technologies to IFA 2016

BERLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#8KUHD–TCL Corporation (SZSE: 000100), a leading manufacturer of consumer
electronics and provider of Internet application services, will exhibit
its 8K UHD Curved TV and a full range of other latest TVs and
technologies at Booth 102 – Hall 21 of the 56th Internationale
Funkausstellung (IFA) in Berlin from September 2nd to 7th,
2016.

TCL has brought a lineup of its latest LCD TVs including the new
flagship QUHD TV Xclusive X1 and the TCL “Cityline” Series, to cater for
the diversified demands of customers. Among them, the 65” 8K UHD Curved
TV is definitely another eye-catcher, featuring a panel produced by
China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) which offers eight times
the pixel count of full HD resolution and active 3D function. This 8K
prototype will seriously blast the eyeballs of visitors because it
displays an extra level of razor sharp detail that is way better than a
4K screen.

TCL will be demonstrating its efforts to gain a foothold in the high-end
TV segment. Commenting on TCL’s overseas strategy, Tomson Li, Chairman
and CEO of TCL Corporation, said, “We have been investing heavily in
innovation to create better TV products. We believe innovation will be
rewarding. It will bring us to a new horizon and our users a better
experience. We welcome all visitors to experience our innovative
offerings at IFA.”

As the LCD TVs have been pursuing larger sizes and higher resolutions,
high-end displays play an essential role for TCL to obtain a competitive
edge in the LCD TV industry. By actively making strategical vertical
integration with upstream display supplier CSOT, TCL has been able to
gain a technological advantage and expand its global presence in the
high-end LCD display market.

CSOT currently owns two Gen 8.5 and one Gen 6 LCD production lines,
which can produce panels as large as 55″. On August 29, just days before
IFA 2016, TCL announced that the company, its subsidiary CSOT and the
local government will jointly invest RMB 46.5 billion (US$ 6.9 billion)
to build a production line for Gen 11 TFT-LCD and AMOLED displays, which
will start mass production in July 2019. The production line, when
completed, will be able to produce 43″, 65″, 70″ (21:9), 75″ LCD
displays, ultra-large public displays as well as OLED displays, and
enable TCL to enhance its portfolio in terms of large-sized LCD displays
and help boost the company’s comprehensive competitiveness in LCD
display business.

IFA 2016 comes at a special time for TCL, for this year marks the 35th
anniversary of the Corporation growing from a local joint venture to a
global giant in home appliances. The company came in 3rd in
the world ranking of the LCD TV market and 5th in the world’s
mobile phone market. Also it is now one of the 10 largest tablet
manufacturers.
