While Mini LED might be the tech driving the brand’s most popular home entertainment products, Hisense’s foray into short-throw laser projectors might catch up sooner rather than later.

At this year’s CES, the company showed off what the next chapter of the category looks like. The most eye-catching item on display here was undoubtedly Hisense’s first 8K "sonic screen" Laser TV and its new rollable 4K Laser TV. However, lower-profile laser tech like its new ultra-black screen promises to be much more significant for those who can’t afford something like the aforementioned.

Designed to be used with the company’s Laser TVs, this enhanced ALR screen features micro-nano and anti-glare film that Hisense claims can increase the brightness of the content produced by the projector by as much as 50% and a rejection of as much as 94% when it comes to ambient light. Seen side-by-side with its predecessor at Hisense’s CES booth, those improvements were immediately noticeable.

It’s not yet clear when or how Hisense will look to bring the ultra-black screen to market, but a spokesperson for the company suggested that it would be available separately for those who want to upgrade their existing Laser TV setups to take advantage of it.

Hisense UltraSlim Laser TV

In addition to its ultra-black screen, Hisense also showed off a new slimmed-down version of its 4K Laser TV.

With a weight of just 7.5kg and a form factor that’s only a little larger than a chunky 14-inch laptop, the new Ultra Slim 4K Laser TV features the same insides as its siblings in a form factor that’s about 70% smaller than Hisense’s first Laser TV.

Those size gains are pretty significant, so if the physical space demanded by previous Hisense Laser TVs was the thing that held you back from pulling the trigger then this might be exactly the thing you’ve been waiting for.

There’s no timeline on when or even if the Hisense Ultra Slim 4K Laser TV will come to the Australian market but if it does then it could make for a much easier sell than earlier incarnations.
