VIZIO, America’s HDTV and Consumer Electronics Company, announced today shipping of a new lineup of leading edge XVT (Xtreme VIZIO Technology) Series HDTVs featuring Full Array TruLED™ LCD HDTV technology.
VIZIO, a leading seller of LED LCD TVs in the U.S. with 500,000 units sold in the second quarter, offers its premium XVT line with picture quality improvements that elevate the performance standard for LED backlit LCD HDTVs and produce the best possible viewer experience.
With added zones of Smart Dimming, unmatched 10,000,000:1 contrast ratios and 240Hz SPS (scenes per second) refresh rates, the 55″ XVT553SV, 47″ XVT473SV” and 42″ XVT423SV models outperform competitive HDTVs that use Edge Lit LED technology. In smaller screen sizes, XVT Series performance has also been improved. The 32″ XVT323SV and the 37″ XVT373SV Edge Lit Razor LED LCD HDTVs with local dimming produce a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio with full HD 1080p resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate.
Other than arbitrary and easily fudged specs, VIZIO’s fighting the competition with its VIA suite of features — widget based app platform with Netflix, Pandora & others, built-in WiFi and QWERTY Bluetooth remote — and they’re all here, along with plenty of HDMI inputs and SRS audio technology. The 32-inch isn’t the cheapest model that size you’ll find at $699 and neither is the top of the line XVT553SV with its $2,199 MSRP. Check out new prices and buy it from Amazon.
