The company's latest entry level Ultra HD displays and HDTVs have been detailed.
VIZIO has revealed their 2016 E-Series display lineup. The collection includes Ultra HD Display and HDTV models with support for the SmartCast ecosystem.
"The VIZIO E-Series truly offers an uncompromised value to consumers," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "The product line gives consumers a whole new way to engage with content thanks to Google Cast built-in and the VIZIO SmartCast app. E-Series consumers can also reap the benefits of 4K Ultra HD technology with enhanced clarity and lifelike detail now playing a fundamental role in their entertainment experience."
VIZIO's E-Series Ultra HD displays feature Full-Array LED panels with up to 12 Active LED Zones. Additional features include integrated Google Cast support, Clear Action 240 technology, an ultra-fast 120Hz Effective Refresh Rate, VIZIO's Spatial Scaling Engine, and VM50 Ultra HD Engine for 4K upscaling. Likewise, the displays include support for the VIZIO SmartCast app on iOS and Android devices. Instead of jumping between apps, VIZIO SmartCast lets users search and browse content by genre across multiple apps at once directly on their tablets or smartphones. A standard IR remote control is included as well. Ultra HD models will be available in sizes ranging from 43 inches to 70 inches. And in addition to Ultra HD, the E-Series will also include HDTV models in sizes ranging from 32 inches to 55 inches.
