Vizio Showcases 2011 Televisions - Including 21:9 Sets

And yes, they really should be factored down to 7:3 but that just doesn't sound as cool now, does it?

Vizio has a lot up its sleeve for the 2011 holiday season, but the biggest - or at least the most interesting - addition to the company's lineup is the new Cinemawide series.

Two Cinemawide sets, in 50 and 58 inch sizes, will be available later this year at a price yet to be set. They offer a 21:9 aspect ratio, which means you'll be able to watch 2.35:1 movies that fill the screen instead of having to deal with black bars on the top and bottom.

Vizio is also launching XVT sets that boast 160 zones of LED backlighting and smart dimming technology. These are expected to launch in December.

Last but not least, the M series of passive 3D sets will be launching later this year. Each TV will come with four sets of glasses and will play nice with the glasses you take home from the theater. And admit it, you do take them home.
