VIZIO M-Series 4K TVs Include Tablet Remote (2016 models)

VIZIO SmartCast M-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display 2016

VIZIO today announced the 2016 M-Series Ultra HD 4K TVs, which feature High Dynamic Range (HDR), Dolby Vision, Google Cast, and include a 6-inch Android Tablet Remote Control. The collection, sized from 50″ to 80″ also boasts Full-Array LED backlighting with up to 64 Active LED Zones that render images with incredible detail, depth and contrast.

The new M-Series TVs claim to offer a more immersive viewing experience than other conventional Ultra HD sets without High Dynamic Range. Ultra HD featuring High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision support transforms the entertainment experience with dramatic imaging, incredible brightness and contrast that brings content to life.

Like all products in the VIZIO SmartCast line-up, the new M-Series is controlled by the VIZIO SmartCast app. Instead of jumping between apps, VIZIO SmartCast changes the way content is discovered and controlled, allowing users to first search and browse content by genre across multiple apps at once, then select the app or source to play on the big screen. Rather than forcing users to struggle with seeing and adjusting settings or navigate apps from across the room, the app simplifies navigation, bringing it to the mobile screen.

VIZIO 6-inch Android Tablet Remote

The VIZIO SmartCast app comes pre-loaded on the included 6″ Android Tablet Remote or is available for download to iOS and Android smartphones or tablets. This added benefit allows users to control any VIZIO SmartCast device from nearly any mobile device, from anywhere in the home.

“The VIZIO Tablet Remote with pre-loaded VIZIO SmartCast app is a game-changer.”

–said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO

The M-Series also features powerful Full-Array LED backlighting with up to 64 Active LED Zones, twice as many as the award-winning 2015 M-Series collection. These zones dynamically adjust to on-screen content for deeper, richer black levels and more accurate contrast1 than ever-before seen on an M-Series display. Clear Action 720 technology and ultra-fast 240Hz Effective Refresh Rate achieved with backlight scanning ensures action-packed scenes in movie, sports and video games are presented with enhanced motion clarity, stability and smoothness with reduced motion blur.

As with all VIZIO SmartCast 4K Ultra HD displays, the M-Series does not come with a tuner for over-the-air antenna viewing. For those that use an external antenna to watch local broadcasts, a separate external TV tuner is required. The M-Series comes with an HDMI cable for the best quality connection to high-definition devices.

The 6-inch Android Tablet Remote comes with a convenient wireless charging dock. The tablet remote allows consumers to browse and play content with simple tap, swipe and voice-based controls. With integrated stereo speakers and a powerful quad-core processor, the Android tablet also serves as a premium, standalone tablet that users can download all of their favorite apps from the Google Play store to play games, chat, email and more.

With Google Cast built into the M-Series, consumers can access thousands of mobile apps they already know and love. By simply tapping the Cast button, users can easily watch content go from their mobile screen to any VIZIO SmartCast device on their home WiFi network. And with WiFi streaming, users can still multi-task on the included tablet remote or their own mobile device without interrupting what is playing on the display.
