VIZIO announced three CinemaWide 3D Smart HDTVs with an ultra wide 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560x1080p resolution, which include 50-inch, 58-inch and 71-inch models. Each includes VIZIO Internet Apps (V.I.A.) and are ideal for watching CinemaScope 2.35:1 aspect ratio movies without the black bars as seen on conventional HDTVs.
The 50-inch XVT3D500CM and 58-inch XVT3D580CM feature VIZIO's Edge Lit Razor LED backlight LCD with Smart Dimming technology. VIZIO's Smart Dimming intelligently controls each set's array of LEDs, which is organized in 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 1,000,000 to 1 for stunning picture quality. Both sets have a 120Hz refresh rate for smooth images, even with fast moving sports action.
The 71-inch XVT3D710CM takes performance to an even higher level, using VIZIO's Full Array TruLED backlighting with Smart Dimming technology. Using over 120 zones across the entire display, TruLED backlighting is able to control specific areas of the image to a much finer degree than edge-lit sets, resulting in even deeper blacks and higher contrast, with life-like images that “pop” off the screen with an incredible 20,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio. A 240Hz SPS (Scenes per Second) refresh rate renders amazing detail and clarity in fast motion scenes.
This uncompromising cinematic experience allows CinemaWide viewers to see each frame of the movie as the director intended, for a more immersive 2D and 3D movie and gaming experience at home. In addition, CinemaWide HDTVs feature V.I.A. functionality with the unique ability to allow users to view apps side-by-side with full-size and full HD resolution 16:9 programming.
With CinemaWide HDTVs, users can enjoy interactive TV through an enhanced smart TV experience using the award-winning V.I.A. platform. CinemaWide HDTV ensures a seamless V.I.A. experience when watching TV by displaying apps side-by-side next to a pixel-perfect 16:9 full HD image. CinemaWide LCD HDTVs are the first sets in the market to offer this capability, allowing users to simultaneously browse and use V.I.A. on the left side of the screen without missing anything from their 16:9 programming on the right. Whether it's checking a fantasy football lineup while watching a game, catching up with friends over Facebook or Twitter while watching TV, or tracking a personal portfolio while watching financial news headlines, viewers can complement their TV experience like never before.
Navigating the V.I.A. platform is simple and comfortably accessible from anywhere in the room, thanks to the premium Bluetooth universal remote control with its integrated QWERTY keypad. Built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi and one of the industry's easiest setup experiences make it quick to connect to the Internet over a wireless connection.
All CinemaWide HDTVs can also display 3D content delivered from a 3D-capable source, such as a 3D Blu-ray player, set-top box, or gaming console. Featuring VIZIO's Theater 3D technology, these TVs render a superior crystal-clear, flicker-free 3D picture that's up to two times brighter than conventional active shutter LCD TVs, with significantly less crosstalk, a wider horizontal viewing angle, and smoother fast motion scenes.
The accompanying Theater 3D eyewear produces far less eyestrain and headaches than conventional active shutter glasses, and is battery-free, lightweight and comfortable. Up to four pairs of Theater 3D glasses are provided with each set, and are also available in a rapidly growing range of styles and colors from brand name designers. They can even be used in most 3D movie theaters.
SRS technologies help deliver an immersive, virtual, high definition surround sound through StudioSound HD — the ultimate all-in-one audio suite designed specifically for flat panel TVs. StudioSound HD delivers an immersive and natural surround sound by using only the built-in TV speakers. The suite also delivers remarkably crisp and clear dialog, rich bass, an elevated soundstage and consistent, spike-free volume levels.
