VIZIO HDTV Product Highlights
VIZIO’s 2014 E-Series Full-Array LED Smart TV collection is ideal for consumers looking for the latest technology, great picture quality and popular features like Smart TV connectivity and streaming apps. Unlike most competitive models in its class, the VIZIO E-Series includes Full-Array LED backlighting and advanced local dimming technology, with up to 18 Active LED Zones, delivering better light uniformity for a more vibrant, beautiful picture. Technology like Active LED Zones represents a significant step forward in picture quality for consumers. Pure black levels with higher contrast are created by dynamic adjustment of the LED backlight in each Active LED Zone, based on the content displayed on the screen. More zones mean more discrete control of the LED backlight resulting in improved contrast and more impressive picture quality.
For consumers interested in a step up to cutting-edge picture quality, VIZIO’s 2014 M-Series Full-Array LED Smart TV collection is the answer. Using advanced Full-Array LED backlighting technology, the 2014 VIZIO M-Series models provide premium picture performance. With up to 36 Active LED Zones, consumers can enjoy additional zones of local dimming for more balanced distribution of backlighting across the entire screen, enhancing deep, accurate black levels and brighter, more vivid details. In addition, Active Pixel Tuning delivers intelligent pixel level luminance adjustments to further increase contrast and picture detail accuracy. The M-Series line-up features a two-sided smart remote with backlit QWERTY keyboard, further enhancing the VIZIO Smart TV experience with simple, one-touch access to favorite apps and entertainment.
All VIZIO Smart TVs launching into Canada feature the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus platform, bringing apps such as Netflix, YouTube, Yahoo! News, Flickr, Crackle and more, right into the consumer’s living room, bedroom or den. An app dock overlays the bottom of the screen giving consumers quick, at-a-glance access to seven of their favorite apps, without interrupting on-screen content. With the selected app in center focus of the display, users can easily view the previous three and next three apps in the carousel for faster navigation.
VIZIO Audio Product Highlights
VIZIO’s audio solutions serve as the perfect complement for today’s slim HDTVs and bring superior surround sound and new convenience features to any room in the house.
