Hisense announces global availability of new 80-inch laser TVs

The new-generation TV is expected to achieve rapid growth

BEIJING, May 18, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Hisense, an official sponsor of the 2018 FIFA World CupTM, launched the new 80-inch L5 laser TV in Beijing on May 17. With highly affordable pricing, the new product is well within the reach of families with modest incomes. With the World Cup just around the corner, the revolution of the home theater in the Chinese living room has officially been launched.

Hisense announces global availability of 80-inch 4K laser TV

Technology can be life-changing. To date, the popularity of laser televisions was hobbled by two drawbacks, the lack of brightness in the image and the extravagant price. The newly launched L5 laser TV solved these two pain points. The model comes with 400 nit brightness, a substantial increase over all existing laser models, as well as a new generation custom-made Danish DNP high gain anti-light hard screen, enabling a clear picture display no matter how bright the surrounding light. As the centerpiece of a home theater, the super large screen can be viewed comfortably without needing to draw the curtains or close the shutters. As the TV is powered by a reflective light source which is comfortable to the eyes rather than dazzling, despite the 80-inch height, the screen can be viewed comfortably even when sitting as close as 3 meters (approx. 10 ft.), greatly reducing the amount of living space that would need to be set aside as a viewing area for the home theater. The second barrier to laser TV ownership has been done away with: a price tag of 19,999 yuan (approx. US$3,140) allows the laser model to become a “successor of first choice” and augurs Hisense’s comprehensive participation in the large screen television market.

With the Russian World Cup just about to kick off, the demand for large-screen and high-definition smart TVs is on track to explode. The brand new VIDAA AI system that comes with the Hisense L5 laser television is equipped with such features as automatic sports mode, star recognition and screenshot sharing of wonderful moments, transforming the unit into your best game watching companion.

The launch of Hisense L5 laser TV is expected to usher in a trend of large-scale replacement of TVs in Chinese households. Hisense expects laser television to become the big disruptor in the home theater market for 2018.

In Regard to UAE Concerns about Qatari Violations ICAO Calls for Maintaining Safety of Civil Aviation.

In view of the serious incidents of civil aviation safety violation by Qatar involving its military aircraft coming in close proximity to UAE-registered civilian aircraft since early 2018, the International Civil Aviation Organization Council (ICAO) has upheld the concerns of the UAE about the hazardous safety situation created by uncoordinated Qatari Military Operations.

This came during a session of the ICAO Council held here today in the presence of the UAE Ambassador to Canada Fahad Al Raqbani and the Director General of UAE General Civil Aviation Authority Saif Al Suwaidi.

In response to the UAE Government’s request, ICAO reaffirmed the importance of ensuring the safety of aviation and the protection of civilian lives on board the aircraft. ICAO has highlighted the importance of the Civil and Military cooperation and the effective application of due regard to the safety of the civilian aircraft which is germane to maintaining the safety of air traffic in the region. ICAO will continue to monitor the situation to identify and implement technical solutions for enhanced safety in the region.

Saif Mohammed Al Suwaidi, Director General of the UAE General Civil Aviation Authority, welcomed the decision by the ICAO council, thanking the international body for recognizing “the validity of the UAE complaint and the recommendations that GCAA made in its working paper submitted to the Council.”

He expressed to the council during the hearing that the incidents reported by the UAE constitute a clear and serious violation by the State of Qatar of the Chicago Convention to ensure that the Military aircraft operate with “due regard” to the civil air navigation. The concrete and robust evidence presented to the Council by the UAE proved that the State of Qatar failed to notify risky activities in advance and coordinate between their military and civilian Air Traffic Services units on the one hand and with Bahrain Air Traffic Services units on the other.

Most importantly, they failed to ensure that their Military aircraft operate with due regard to the safety of civilian air traffic, there is no rational or logical justification for the reckless behavior of the state of Qatar” he pointed out, adding that the five incidents demonstrate the extent to which Qatar would go in its desperation to spite its neighbors and harm the passenger who hail from all parts of the globe, Al Suwaidi added.

“UAE being an international aviation hub for passengers of almost all nationalities of the world, the willful perpetration of such callous violation of aviation safety standards by the State of Qatar should be seen as a threat not just to the people of the UAE and the Gulf, but to global security as a whole,” He explained.

“The ICAO position reaffirms the UAE’s faith in international organizations and by whom the UAE has always stood in the spirit of global citizenship. UAE is committed to the collective safety and well-being of all peoples of the world. Each month, more than 50,000 flights transit safely and efficiently through the Bahraini airspace. Every year, Bahrain Air Traffic Control handles nearly 600,000 movements. Out of this significant number of flights, Qatar only targeted UAE registered aircraft,” Al Suwaidi elaborated.

Speaking about Qatar’s provocative moves against UAE civilian aircraft, Mohammed Al Dossari, Director of Air Navigation and Aerodrome and a member of the UAE delegation to the ICAO Council, said: “Qatar has violated several articles of the International Convention on Civil Aviation that requires States to ensure that their military aircraft have due regard for the safety of the navigation of civil aircraft, and the lives of persons on board.The dangerous maneuvers by Qatari fighter jets also contravened the ICAO’s stipulations regarding coordination between military authorities and responsible civilian authorities, in addition to constituting a grave violation of the bilateral agreements between Qatar and Bahrain in this respect.”

“In light of the above, we reiterate upon the international community to put pressure on the Qatari authorities to refrain from activities that endanger not only the citizens of the UAE, but also citizens of almost all countries in the world. The kind of violations perpetrated by Qatar will stop once and for all only if there is a strong reaction against its reckless behavior by the international community,” Al Suwaidi concluded.

We condemns and denounce excessive use of forces by Israeli occupation against defenseless Palestinians, says Dr. Anwar Gargash.

Dr. Anwar bin Mohammed Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, has expressed the UAE’s condemnation of the Israeli occupation’s use of excessive force against unarmed Palestinians who exercise their right to demonstrate and demand their legitimate rights, while warning of the negative repercussions of such dangerous escalation.

He stressed that the US decision to transfer the US Embassy to Jerusalem has complicated the situation and put obstacles to the peace process as the decision is a complete prejudice against the historic and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem.

This came during his speech while addressing the Extraordinary Session of the Council of the League of Arab States at Ministerial Level Meeting chaired by the Saudi Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, to discuss the latest developments in the Palestinian territories.

In his speech, he extended thanks to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as the Chair of the current session of the Council of the Arab League at ministerial level, for its efforts in organising today’s meeting which aimed at discussing the grave developments in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

He also praised the attendance of the member ministers and their quick response which emphasises the centrality of the Palestinian cause, which, he said,” Our first issue,”

Dr. Gargash said that the meeting is being held today in the light of the serious Israeli escalation against the fraternal people of Palestine, which led to the death of dozens of martyrs and hundreds of wounded, in conjunction with the opening of the US Embassy in Jerusalem.

He went on saying, “While we express our strong condemnation of using the excessive force by the Israeli occupation against unarmed Palestinians who exercise their right and demand their legitimate rights, we warn against the negative repercussions of such a dangerous escalation and we call for international probe to hold those responsible for this massacre accountable. At the same time, we stress that the US decision to transfer the US Embassy to Jerusalem has complicated the situation and put obstacles before the peace process and is deemed a complete bias against the historical and permanent rights of the Palestinian people in Jerusalem which had been guaranteed by the relevant international resolutions and were recognised and supported by the international community,”

He also stressed the need to abide by UN Security Council Resolution No. 478 of 1980, which clearly calls on countries that have established diplomatic missions in Jerusalem to withdraw these missions from the Holy City, while stressing the importance of complying with all international resolutions that call for not to establish or transfer embassies and diplomatic missions to Jerusalem, or recognition of the city as the capital of Israel.

The Minister of State for Foreign Affairs indicated, “Jerusalem is a special spiritual value for the humans and as our hearts strive for it every day, we call on the international community to shoulder its responsibilities to stop violence against the fraternal Palestinian people, halt the vicious attack against it and end the brutal occupation. We also call on the Security Council to take effective and decisive steps in this regard. We also slam the use of the Veto by the US and to undermine the Security Council from carrying out its duty to achieve a transparent and impartial probe towards the massacres committed by Israel against the Palestinian people. We stress that there is no security in the region without a just, permanent and comprehensive solution of the Palestinian cause based on the two-state solution,”

He concluded, “We are working, in the Arab framework, to ensure that today’s meeting will come out with the steps and strong and effective Arab diplomatic action to seek urgent international intervention to provide international protection for the Palestinians and to indicate the negative repercussions of the US decision on the future of the Palestinian cause in all international organisations, its consequences on the security and stability not only in the Middle East, but also on the whole world and to reach results that promote the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinian people and all our Arab peoples, so that the perpetrator is not always immune from accountability for the crimes committed against the Palestinian people, which is contrary to all the rules established by the international law.”
