The company revealed that the 6 & 8-Series Roku TV models will be adopting Quantum Dot (QLED) color technology for wider and more vibrant performance. The QLED color technology in both 8-Series and 6-Series will deliver color without the limitations of lower color volume or shorter life found in other color technologies.
With the Contrast Control Zone technology, the highly demanded 6-Series will continue to offer high-end technology. To drive individual zones of LED lights behind the TV’s LCD panel, this lighting technology allows each zone of the TV to be brighter or darker depending on the image that’s on the screen.

A new contrast technology has been developed and is being deployed for the first time in the 2019 8-Series TCL Roku TV models. Quantum Contrast is technology powered byhigh-performance mini-LED back-lights. It offers more than 25,000 individual mini-LEDs powering the 75” 8-Series TV, compared to only a few hundred traditional LEDs found in standard big-screen TVs. The TCL 8-Series will be available this fall in a 65” and 75” 4K resolution models. 8K resolution models will be available in screen sizes of 75” and larger soon.
