Though their execution of 8K may fall just a tad short of the bigger brands displaying the latest TVs at IFA 2019, Hisense still managed to grab my attention with one of their 8K models in their booth here in Berlin. Not only because it was a Hisense branded 8K—which had me dreaming about the day when more-affordable 8K might become available—but because it was a concept set that had a unique twist that I don’t recall ever seeing on a TV before.
A second functional display.
Built into a floor standing piece of furniture that holds the TV and also contains a 4.2.2 multichannel speaker system, the narrow second display isn’t a true screen in that you’d find yourself watching picture-in-picture types of content. Rather, it serves as an extension to the TV interface and is really less of a distraction than you’d initially think.
