Vu Televisions has launched The Vu 100, India’s first 100-inch 4K HDR television, starting at a price of Rs 20 lakhs. The gigantic entertainment system supports HDR10 technology and 2.5 billion colours. Any FullHD and 2K resolution videos are also upscaled to 4K by the Vu 100.
According to the company, The Vu 100 is for consumers who want the most immersive cinema experience. The Vu 100 has Android 8.0 Oreo built-in which doubles the system into a smart TV.
Consumers can access a wide variety of streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hotstar. Netflix subscribers can directly stream their favourite shows in true 4K HDR on the Vu 100. With the addition of the Google Assistant, users can control their smart home IoT devices from the comfort of their couch.
Speaking at the launch event, Devika Saraf, CEO of Vu Technologies said, “No one will dispute that we, here in India, love our movies. In fact, we are the biggest consumers of films and serials in the world. And now, providers like Amazon and Netflix have given us access to top quality entertainment to rival anything produced by mainstream Hollywood or Bollywood. So it’s only fitting that we be able to enjoy this high calibre content on high calibre screens. These streaming services are not available at your local cinema, but with our new Vu 100 television with 4K HDR, you get a far better viewing experience than the cloth screen, in the comfort of your own home.”
In terms of hardware specifications, the Vu 100 has a 2,000 watts JBL soundbar and subwoofer integrated into the television with support for Dolby Digital and DTS TruSurround. The television comes with 16GB of internal storage and 2.5GB RAM, with the company claiming that the Vu 100 is capable of playing high graphical games.
The Vu 100 has 3 HDMI, 2 USB and 1 ethernet ports. Additionally, you can connect the television to your home network with the inbuilt WiFi module.
