Hisense XT780 joins the Hisense 65XT880 UHD TV as CES Award Honoree.

New York, New York, November 12, 2012 - Hisense today announced that it has been named an International CES Innovations 2013 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its Google TV powered 55-inch XT780 television.


The Hisense 55XT780 with Google TV expands upon Hisense's depth of experience with Google TV, allowing consumers to enjoy a new level of intuitive content discovery and viewing recommendations in addition to easy navigation to integrated services that include Netflix, Facebook, Pandora, YouTube and more. The XT780 series brings Google Play, web search, e-mail, shopping, news and online videos to users' fingertips.

Built on Google's robust Android platform, Google TV enables TV-optimized versions of Chrome, Google Play, Search, TV & Movies and YouTube.

Supporting standard and high definition content in 2D and 3D, Flash and HTML5 as well as H.264, MPEG-4 and AVC formats, the 55XT780 with Google TV powers the most versatile TV experience available for home entertainment today.
