The U5 series is launching an Ultra Narrow design for even greater immersion: with their ultra-slim frame, these LED TVs put images and emotions first.

With a modern and clean design, it will fit into you home perfectly while taking up the tiniest amount of space: the finesse frame enables you to make the most of a large screen for a limited space.


The Smart TVs in the U5 series allow you to access new sources of entertainment and information. You can surf the web and use an increasing number of services or apps. Thanks to the TV portal, these online televisions have apps** to meet everyone's desires, whatever their interest: news, sport, weather, films via VOD, online videos on Youtube or Dailymotion, web-based radio and social networks such as Facebook or Twitter.

The multimedia hub of your home

As the television is DLNA-certified, you can view your multimedia content directly on its big screen, regardless of the source (computer, smartphone, tablet, DLNA-compatible cameras or camcorders).

HbbTVthe other way to watch television

Compatible with the HbbTV standard, the U5 enables you to make the most of new interactive services that television channels have to offer. With program listings, programs via Replay, additional content or thematic documents, you won’t miss a thing.

Images as close to reality as possible

The televisions in the U5 range include our picture enhancement technology, Pure Image Ultra, which optimizes the contrast, color saturation and brightness while reducing the visual “noise" and distortions caused by compression. The result: ultra-sharp outlines and natural, accurate colors, regardless of the source.

It also comes with 100Hz Clear Motion Index*** technology which guarantees a smooth and natural viewing of scenes with high-motion content, a considerable benefit enabling you to fully enjoy sport or action scenes.
