Unedited press release follows:
Haier, the Official HDTV of the NBA, is introducing the new EV Series, including a 55” model (LE55EV29813D) with a new thin-bezel design that provides a truly immersive viewing experience with a virtually edgeless picture. The ultra slim cabinet design provides a sleek, polished look that makes these units the perfect centerpiece for your home theater.
Haier’s premium line of LED televisions offers exceptional quality, style and features designed to transform the home theatre experience. Evoke series HDTVs come equipped for 3D viewing, and with integrated Wi-Fi, giving consumers instant access to streaming movies, music, and more. These HDTVs are also DLNA certified for easy content sharing with your home computer, cell-phone, and laptops.
Haier’s award winning Smart UI is the convergence of technology and entertainment. It allows straightforward access to the different functions of connected products at the same time while watching TV. There is total connectivity and interactivity between the internet, television, home electronics and appliances, making it possible to operate and check the functionality of all compatible electrical appliances, ultimately turning the TV into the centerpiece of the household. The Smart UI also features intuitive navigation with the double-sided QWERTY remote control; one side of the remote allows access to key TV functions, the other side has an intuitive keypad for easy access to different content available and allows you to communicate instantly with friends.
Passive polarization displays two images on the screen simultaneously, but with each image having a different polarization. Polarizing glasses consist of two polarizing films that allow light of different polarizations though. Due to the differing polarizations of the incoming light, one eyepiece allows one image through while the other eyepiece allows the other image through. This option provides rich colors and a flicker-free experience. 2D to 3D conversion creates a 3D-like effect when viewing non-3D video.

Auto Volume Leveler
The Auto Volume Leveler lets you enjoy watching television without the annoying volume fluctuations between channels or when the program goes to commercials. Simply set the volume to your preferred listening level and the AVL automatically regulates the sound level.
120Hz Full Motion
By doubling the refresh rate and interpolating detail in fast motion scenes, 120Hz Full Motion Refresh Rate provides enhanced picture quality, reproducing crisp and detailed true-to-life moving images, so it’s great for sports and action movies.
Ambient Light Sensor
The Ambient Light Sensor detects light from the surrounding environment and automatically increases or decreases the TV backlight to compensate for low and high-light environments. It automatically lowers brightness when in a dark room, ensuring viewing comfort and exceptional picture quality.
