Hisense introduit son téléviseur laser 90L5H grand écran familial en Afrique du Sud

LE CAP, Afrique du Sud, 16 février 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Hisense, première marque mondiale d’électronique, se prépare à procurer une expérience visuelle révolutionnaire aux foyers sud-africains avec la commercialisation locale de son téléviseur laser 4K 90L5H. Doté d’une palette de plus de 16,7 millions de couleurs, ce produit restitue des images plus vraies que nature avec un réalisme et une précision exceptionnels.

Présenté comme le téléviseur grand écran le plus familial de la société, le 90L5H est un véritable concentré de puissance, avec son écran de 90 pouces et ses 8,3 millions de pixels, doté de la technologie laser X-Fusion révolutionnaire de la société et du son multidimensionnel Dolby Atmos. Ce produit est le choix idéal pour de nombreux clients, qu’il s’agisse de cinéphiles passionnés à la recherche de la meilleure expérience sur grand écran, de sportifs désireux de plonger au cœur de l’action ou de joueurs à la recherche des meilleurs graphismes. Le 90L5H, d’une longueur de 1,80 m, a de quoi séduire les utilisateurs de tous horizons, qu’il s’agisse d’enfants, d’adolescents ou de professionnels qui apprécient les plaisirs de la vie.

En associant la technologie laser X-Fusion de la société et la technologie de projection à focale ultra-courte, le téléviseur 90L5H d’Hisense produit des images d’une grande netteté, qui offrent aux familles une atmosphère unique dans leur propre maison, semblable à celle que l’on retrouve dans un cinéma. Malgré sa taille, ce produit est très performant. Il est doté d’un écran réfléchissant et émet peu de lumière bleue afin que les utilisateurs ne ressentent pas de fatigue oculaire lors de longues séances de visionnage, et ce, sans perdre la qualité d’affichage d’origine.

L’investissement d’Hisense dans les performances ne s’arrête pas là. La société a employé sa technologie de rejet de la lumière ambiante pour accentuer davantage les couleurs, et les utilisateurs n’ont pas besoin d’éteindre les lumières pour obtenir une qualité d’image claire et saisissante. Par ailleurs, le contraste naturel élevé, avec un taux de 3 000:1, rend les reflets à l’écran encore plus saisissants et apporte de la profondeur et du réalisme aux images ombragées à l’écran.

L’équipe d’Hisense a privilégié une ergonomie élégante et attrayante lors de la conception du 90L5H, et il en résulte un produit qui trouvera sa place dans pratiquement toutes les pièces de la maison. Sous le capot, son cadre en aluminium robuste et sa surface résistante aux rayures allient une esthétique agréable à des performances robustes, le tout pour seulement 9 kg.

En matière de flexibilité pour les utilisateurs, le téléviseur prend en charge l’HDR10, l’HLG et le Dolby Vision tout en exploitant la gamme dynamique élevée pour transférer sa capacité à afficher des couleurs aussi vives aux contenus pris en charge. De plus, le mode Filmmaker (cinéaste) permet d’offrir aux utilisateurs une expérience visuelle plus authentique. Ce mode désactive certains des paramètres de la technologie d’image et de mouvement pour rétablir l’expérience visuelle telle que le créateur l’a voulue, ce qui permet à l’utilisateur de contrôler entièrement la qualité de l’image.

Hisense Brings Its Most Family-friendly Big-screen 90L5H Laser TV to South Africa

CAPE TOWN, South Africa, Feb. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Leading global electronics brand Hisense is preparing to deliver a revolutionary viewing experience to homes in South Africa with the local launch of its 90L5H 4K Laser TV. Featuring a palette of more than 16.7 million colors, the product brings true-to-life pictures with outstanding realism and accuracy.

Billed as the company’s most family-friendly big-screen TV, the 90L5H packs quite the punch with a 90-inch screen and 8.3 million pixels featuring the company’s groundbreaking X-Fusion Laser Technology and Dolby Atmos multidimensional sound. The product is the perfect choice for a wide range of customers, whether they are avid movie fans looking for the best big-screen experience, sports fans trying to get closer to the action, or gamers looking for the best way to view graphics. The six-foot-wide 90L5H has something to offer users across a diverse mixture of demographics, from kids and teenagers to professionals who enjoy the finer things in life.

By employing a combination of the company’s X-Fusion Laser Technology and ultra-short throw projection technology, Hisense achieves razor-sharp imagery on the 90L5H TV, bringing families a unique atmosphere in their own homes that is not dissimilar to the full-on cinematic experience. Despite its size, the product really punches above its weight in terms of performance. It features a reflective display and low-blue light to ensure that users will not feel the strain on their eyes during prolonged viewing sessions and all this comes without sacrificing the original display quality.

However, Hisense’s investment in performance does not stop there. The company used its Ambient Light Rejecting technology to strengthen colors further, and users don’t need to kill the lights to ensure a crystal clear and striking picture quality. Additionally, the high native contrast with a native rate of 3,000:1 makes those on-screen highlights even more punchy, delivering for users in terms of depth and realism for shadowy imagery on screen.

The team at Hisense pursued a sleek and attractive ergonomic when designing the 90L5H, and the result is a product that would not look out of place in most rooms anywhere in the house. Under the hood, the sturdy aluminum frame and scratch-resistance surface combine a favorable aesthetic with solid performance, and it all weighs only 20 pounds.

In terms of flexibility for users, the TV supports HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision while leveraging High Dynamic Range to transfer its ability to display such strong colors to supported content. Additionally, Filmmaker Mode is on hand to bring users a more authentic viewing experience. The mode deactivates some of the picture and motion technology settings to revert the viewing experience back to how the creator intended it to be, putting the user completely in control of image quality.

Acadian Plant Health™ Launches Newly Branded Vision for Immediate Innovative Solutions in Support of Sustainable Global Food Production

DARTMOUTH, NS, Feb. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Acadian Plant Health™ today announced ‘Sea Beyond,’ the company’s newly branded vision designed to transition the biostimulant industry with technological solutions that respond to an agricultural production system highly stressed by climate change.

“Our ‘Sea Beyond‘ launch is our new vision, leadership, and commitment to providing innovative and sustainable solutions for global agriculture,” says Nelson Gibson, President Acadian Plant Health. “We are challenging conventional thinking to ‘Sea Beyond’ the way the biostimulant industry delivers agricultural solutions that respond to the growing global demand for food and climate stress.”

Acadian Plant Health Logo

The announcement builds on the company’s leadership position in the global biostimulant sector, to become the leading crop abiotic stress management company with patented seaweed core technology. Acadian Plant Health research and development delivers sea-to-land, science-based solutions, proven to alleviate crop stress from factors like drought, heat, chill, salinity and nutrient deficiencies, while still maintaining and improving the productivity of the crop. Acadian Plant Health products are designed and created as unique active ingredient solutions that will both stand-alone and fit into other technologies to solve key agricultural challenges.

“The more we spoke with our customers, the more we realized that there is a misconception of ‘either/or’ when it comes to performance and sustainability,” says Gibson. “There is a perception that you couldn’t get the yield you needed with  ‘eco-friendly’ products. But we’re challenging this conventional thinking. Working together with our industry partners, our biostimulants promise stronger yielding crops in a sustainable manner, which we have been proving with science for the past 40 years,” says Gibson. “What we must do as an industry now is see beyond the current state of the agricultural inputs industry and offer solutions that provide high value, crop productivity technology that shifts from a peripheral add-on to an essential component of Sustainable Agriculture. The world is changing, and we know things must change on a global basis. One company can’t do it alone. We must work together to advance sustainability for the benefit of plant and planet.”

Press Release: Coalition for Digital Africa Announces Internet Exchange Point Initiative

ISTANBUL, Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Coalition for Digital Africa announced another major initiative aimed at strengthening the Internet infrastructure across the continent. This latest initiative will focus on enhancing five existing Internet exchange points (IXPs), to improve Internet access by making it faster and more affordable, thus positively impacting Internet users in the regions they are placed in.

Internet Society

The Coalition for Digital Africa is an initiative created by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) that aims to bring more Africans online by supporting the development of a robust and secure Internet infrastructure in Africa. IXPs enable the exchange of Internet traffic locally and are essential for any region aspiring to participate fully in the global Internet economy. The initiative is supported by a grant from ICANN and will be implemented by the Internet Society (ISOC).

Using an assessment tool developed by ISOC, five IXPs will be identified based on their potential to make a high impact on the respective local and sub-regional markets. The Internet Society will work to create a clear plan for growth and development, tailored to the regions’ interests to strengthen the Internet in Africa. A local manager will be identified and recruited for each IXP, to be responsible for implementing the action plan and achieving measurable project targets while receiving training and support from ISOC.

“Well-managed IXPs open new worlds of possibilities, with modest investment, by improving local Internet services and reducing their costs,” said Sally Costerton, Interim President and CEO of ICANN, which launched the Coalition for Digital Africa in December 2022.

Research from the Internet Society shows that IXPs improve the end-user experience through lowering the costs of Internet access and stimulating the development of local Internet ecosystems and cross-border interconnection.

“IXPs make Internet access cheaper and more reliable. They are a critical resource in making sure the Internet is for everyone,” said Andrew Sullivan, President and CEO of ISOC. “The Internet Society is grateful for this investment by ICANN that will help bring Internet access to more people throughout the continent.”

Details of the IXP project were announced during a webinar on 30 January. The initiative is another in a series of initiatives aimed at improving accessibility to the Internet under the auspices of the Coalition for Digital Africa.

The Coalition for Digital Africa comprises governments, regional and international organizations, and the local Internet community. Conceived by ICANN, the Coalition for Digital Africa is an alliance of like-minded organizations committed to building robust and secure Internet infrastructure to bring more Africans online. More information is available at www.coalitionfordigitalafrica.africa.

About ICANN

ICANN’s mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you have to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique, so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a not-for-profit public-benefit corporation and a community with participants from all over the world.

About the Internet Society

Founded in 1992 by Internet pioneers, the Internet Society is a global non-profit organization working to ensure the Internet is for everyone. Through its community of members, special interest groups, and 130+ chapters around the world, the organization defends and promotes Internet policies, standards, and protocols that keep the Internet open, globally connected, and secure.

« La « Mante d’acier » du film est un vrai « Transformer » et, comme vous pourrez le voir en regardant le film, XCMG transforme la science-fiction en réalité grâce aux merveilles de notre ingénierie industrielle. Je suis très fier de ce que nous avons créé », a déclaré M. Gwo.

De l’introduction de technologies de produits provenant de l’étranger à la maîtrise de technologies fondamentales d’une importance capitale, XCMG a mis en place une R&D redoutable grâce à la collaboration mondiale, afin de devenir l’un des trois premiers fabricants d’engins de chantier au monde.
