TCL Raises Its Profile With Smart Cloud TVs
Hong Kong-based TCL unveiled its new line of Smart Cloud TVs at CES, which come with embedded cloud computing and storage technologies, as well as dual-core CPUs, Android and Wi-Fi support. In addition to watching their favorite programs, users can take advantage of Smart Cloud TVs' social media and gaming features and use the televisions as control hubs for home appliances. No word on pricing or availability.
TCL is moving steadily into the U.S. market and is building an R&D center in Silicon Valley. The company is also working with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology to recruit talent and in November partnered with Stanford Research Institute International on a smart television research project.
