    VIZIO Announces Full Line of Theater 3D™ HDTVs in Sizes Ranging from 22 to 71 inches -



    Brighter, Flicker-Free 3D with Superior Performance for Everyone
    -Theater 3D™ revolutionizes 3D for the home with an up to 2x brighter and flicker-free picture quality and significantly reduces crosstalk compared to current Active Shutter LCD TVs

    -Theater 3D eyewear is lightweight, comfortable, and doesn't require batteries. They're also compatible with most 3D movie theaters


    [​IMG]IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 3, 2011


    -- VIZIO, America's #1 LCD HDTV Company*, announced today a full line of Theater 3D™ HDTVs that deliver superior 3D performance for all, with sizes ranging from 22 to 71 inches. Theater 3D HDTVs offer crystal-clear, flicker-free 3D that's up to 2x brighter and significantly reduces crosstalk compared to current Active Shutter LCD TVs. Best of all, Theater 3D eyewear is battery-free, lightweight and comfortable, works with most 3D movie theaters, and will be available in a range of styles and colors from brand name designers.


    "Theater 3D is a significant move forward from the conventional Active Shutter TVs introduced last year," said Matthew McRae, VIZIO Chief Technology Officer. "Users immediately experience a brighter picture, no flicker, less crosstalk, and the comfortable glasses enabling them to enjoy the content without the technology getting in the way. And by making this next generation 3D affordable VIZIO aims to fulfill our brand promise of Entertainment Freedom for All."


    From the essential E series, to the thoughtfully designed M series, and ultra-high performance XVT series, there will be a Theater 3D model for every movie buff, sports fan, gamer, and anyone else looking for a better, brighter 3D experience, starting this spring.

    The Best 3D Experience
    VIZIO Theater 3D™ offers consumers a revolutionary new technology that renders flicker-free and brighter images and significantly reduces crosstalk compared to current Active Shutter LCD TVs.


    By utilizing a circular polarized 3D filter, the burden of 3D processing is built into the TV, allowing Theater 3D eyewear to be free of the batteries and shutter mechanisms inherent in Active Shutter 3D TVs.


    Theater 3D offers several performance advantages over conventional, "active" 3D systems. Theater 3D is up to 2x brighter, and significantly reduces crosstalk compared to current Active Shutter LCD TVs, handles fast motion without blurring, has a wider horizontal viewing angle, and reduces flicker that may cause eye strain found in active shutter 3D solutions. In addition, Theater 3D eyewear can be used to view 3D movies in a majority of movie theaters.


    Depending on the model up to four pairs of the lightweight and comfortable Theater 3D glasses are included with each TV. With this, VIZIO has eliminated two of the most common objections to 3D HDTV purchases: the need to wear bulky 3D glasses that require batteries or recharging and the need to invest in expensive additional 3D glasses so the entire family can enjoy it together. By incorporating all of the 3D processing into the TV instead of burdening the eyewear, as is the case with Active 3D, VIZIO Theater 3D enables users to wear comfortable, eco-friendly, battery-free eyewear instead of Active Shutter glasses that are heavy, awkward, and require recharging and other maintenance.

    Support for the Widest Array of 3D Formats
    Each Theater 3D™ model supports the widest selection of 3D formats to ensure compatibility across Blu-ray, broadcast, cable, satellite, and gaming. This includes Frame Packing, Side-by-Side, Top and Bottom, SENSIO® HiFi 3D and the RealD Format.
    "DisplaySearch is forecasting that North America 3D TV shipments are forecasted to increase by more than 300% in 2011 to 7M units**, driven by a range of new 3D TV types, including circular polarizer filter systems like VIZIO's Theater 3D," stated Paul Gagnon, Director of North America TV Market Research, DisplaySearch.

    VIZIO's Leading LED Picture Quality
    Some Theater 3D models feature VIZIO's Edge-Lit Razor LED™ technology with Smart Dimming™. Razor LED HDTVs with Smart Dimming™ intelligently control the array of LEDs, which are organized in 32 zones. Working frame by frame, based on the content being displayed, Smart Dimming adjusts brightness in precise steps down to pure black (where the LED is completely off). This cutting-edge technology minimizes light leakage and enables a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 10 Million to 1, for blacker blacks and whiter whites.
    Certain XVT models utilize VIZIO's Full Array TruLED™ backlighting with Smart Dimming™ technology. With over 120 zones across the entire display, TruLED backlighting is able to control specific areas of the image, depending on what's on screen, resulting in the most incredible and life-like images that "pop" off the screen.

    VIZIO Internet Apps™ (VIA)
    All Theater 3D™ models feature VIZIO Internet Apps (VIA) Connected HDTV platform. VIA delivers unprecedented choice and control of web-based content directly to the television without the need for a PC or set-top box. Current Apps from top online content and service brands include: Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, VUDU, Pandora, Facebook, Flickr, Rhapsody, Twitter, and Yahoo! TV Widgets. Additional Apps recently released include Fandango®, iMemories, MediaBox™, My-Cast®, TuneIn Radio™, Web Videos, Wiki TV and Yahoo Fantasy Football.


    Navigating VIA is simple, using the included Bluetooth Universal Remote (optional on some models) that includes a QWERTY keypad. State of the art wireless Internet access is available through built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, allowing viewers to enjoy the convenience of on-demand movies, TV shows, social networking, music, photos and more with just the push of a button.

    VIA Plus HDTVs
    The XVT3D476SV and XVT3D556SV are part of the new VIZIO VIA Plus ecosystem that combines the convenience of entertainment on demand with a consistent and seamless experience across all devices in the ecosystem, including the VIA Phone and VIA Tablet. VIA Plus TVs, which will incorporate the Google TV platform, feature a sophisticated and intuitive user interface that allows users to access their favorite apps as well as search and browse the web using a premium Bluetooth QWERTY universal remote with touchpad and built-in dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi.

    Advanced Audio
    To compliment the 3D video of the Theater 3D™ TVs, M and XVT models include the latest high performance audio technologies from SRS Labs. SRS technologies help deliver an immersive, virtual, high definition surround sound through SRS TruSurround HD™. TruSurround HD creates an immersive, feature-rich surround sound experience from two speakers, complete with rich bass, high frequency detail and clearer dialog. In addition, SRS TruVolume™ provides a consistent and comfortable volume level while watching TV programming for a more enjoyable multimedia experience.


    Certain VIZIO Theater 3D TVs will feature SRS StudioSound™ HD - the ultimate all-in-one audio suite designed specifically for Flat Panel TVs. Years of excellence in audio, practical experience, and patented technologies allow StudioSound HD to deliver the most immersive and natural surround sound ever using built-in TV speakers. The suite also delivers remarkably crisp and clear dialog, rich bass, an elevated sound stage and consistent, spike-free volume levels. StudioSound HD features optimized audio presets for movies, news, sports and music while also providing a built-in EQ toolset for peak audio performance.

    Theater 3D in Style
    In addition, Theater 3D eyewear will be available from well-known designer brands, including Oakley who has already launched one line of 3D eyewear that is also compatible with Theater 3D HDTVs. Launched recently as the world's first optically correct 3D glasses, Oakley 3D Gascan® utilizes the company's proprietary HDO-3D™ technology for superior visual clarity and signature Oakley comfort.
    VIZIO continues to lead the HDTV marketplace and with the added performance and value of Theater 3D in these models for 2011:

    Mashable reporter Christina Warren speaks with VIZIO's Peter Schwartz about the company's brand new and giant XVT Pro HD television.



    Hands On With Vizio’s Android-Powered Devices [VIDEO]


    [​IMG]Vizio, a company best known for its HDTVs, is embracing Android in a big way. Last week, the company showed off an Android-based tablet and smartphone at CES 2011, as well as an Android and Google TV-powered HDTV.


    We had a chance to get a look at some early versions of the tablet and smartphone and to see the company’s connected TV approach in person.


    First, let’s talk about the TV. Slated for release this summer, Vizio’s XVT Pro series TV is crammed full of features. Not only is this 3-D capable HDTV LED backlit, it sports a 480Hz refresh rate, five HDMI ports, has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and uses the new VIA Plus platform.

    As for the tablet and smartphone, both devices run Android 2.2 but Vizio told us that the company expects to keep the devices as up to date as possible. No word on pricing, availability or carrier (in the case of the smartphone), but the Vizio reps told us to expect both offerings to be very competitive.

    The interface is extremely customized, but we have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, the interface is clean and usable; it’s a solid and different alternative to the other Android UI skins and it matches the interface of the Android-powered XVT Pro perfectly. On the other hand, the downside of these custom interfaces is that third-party apps don’t always play as nicely as they should with these skins. Moreover, it’s unclear how much work will need to be done to bring Honeycomb over to the tablet.
    Vizio was mum on specific internals on the two devices, but they told us that both devices feature a 1Ghz processor and lots of graphical power. Both units also include an IR port so that they can act as a universal remote control of sorts.


    A real standout feature is that the HDMI port on the table and the smartphone is HDCP compliant. That means protected content from Hulu Plus, Netflix or any other DRMed service can be played back onto an HDTV without issue.


    The units we were using were still in development — the software wasn’t finished on the tablet and the smartphone didn’t have its oleophobic coating. Still, for a first effort, we were impressed.


    Unsurprisingly, we think the real star of the show was the TV; its interface and layout were clean and smooth and worked better than other Google TV implementations we’ve seen. It’ll be interesting to see if Vizio can parlay its success in TVs into that tablet/smartphone space.

    Wow, Yahoo TV Actually Looks Like A Great Product


    Jan. 12, 2011



    We've been pretty bearish on the whole concept of internet TV. We think the big companies like Apple, Google and Microsoft (again) pushing internet TV are trying to solve a problem that normal consumers don't have, and we think the tangle of actors that internet TV are trying to disrupt (from producers to TV networks to cable companies) aren't going to be so easily disrupted.

    That being said, ReadWriteWeb has a report about a cool internet TV product that actually looks useful and interesting. And it comes from, of all people, Yahoo, a company which hasn't been in the news for innovation lately and whose forays into TV to date have been (wisely, in our opinion) cautious and small-scale.


    What sets Yahoo TV apart is that it adds a layer of interactivity and commerce on top of the actual TV experience, instead of completely remaking it into an internet-like experience the way Google and Boxee are attempting. You can answer a poll about your favorite character while watching a TV show. You can buy a product you're seeing on TV from your couch. You might be able to chat with your friends during a live sport event.
    This sounds like the right approach to us. Take something that isn't broken -- TV -- and simply add the good things we like about the internet, like interactivity and commerce. We think that Facebook can do this better than anyone, but Yahoo TV looks like a very solid and interesting effort.


    If nothing else, big tech's forays into TV are interesting to watch.

    Am I reading this right? Does this say that I can watch Hulu Plus on a Vizio Google TV but not on my Sony Google TV? I sure hope the app store and new OS fixes this. That's really frustrating.

    Nope you are reading it wrong. Hulu is not on the VIA Plus line. The VIA Plus line is the one with Google TV. So Hulu is only available on their other Internet Connected TVs that are not running Google TV. It is kinda confusing because the Hulu service is called Hulu Plus and it has nothing to do with the VIA Plus line from Vizio. I think Vizio should have named their Google TV devices something other than VIA Plus.
