The new Vu 4K Smart TV starts at 43-inches. The company said that the newer 4K D-LED panels offer up to 400 nits of peak brightness. Direct LED panels have an array of LEDs behind the primary LCD panel to lighten up the display further. This, when compared to the edge-lit LED panel, offers uniform brightness throughout with lesser bleeding of light on the sides.
Across the different sizes, the new 4K panel gives a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels along with HDR 10 and Dolby vision support. Vu also says the display will come with Gamma calibration as per Hybrid Log-Gamma standards(HLG), dynamic, cinema and calibrated picture modes for better viewing.
