VIZIO announced the company’s new 65-inch Theater 3D Edge-Lit Razor LED HDTV with VIZIO Internet Apps. Since VIZIO is one of the best-known HDTV manufacturers in the US, it simply had to take on its South-Korean rivals from Samsung and LG and roll out a truly impressive widescreen 3D solution, which is exactly what it did with its newly-announced 65” Theater 3D Edge Lit Razor LED LCD HDTV.
The new HDTV utilizes Vizio’s Theater 3D technology to provide a superior alternative to conventional 3D by utilizing battery-free, affordable and lightweight 3D glasses causing less eyestrain than the current “Active Shutter” technology. The XVT3D650SV comes four sets of 3D glasses and is intended to bring cinema-style 3D experience to your home.
The XVT3D650SV supports a wide selection of 3D formats to ensure compatibility across Blu-ray, broadcast, cable, satellite, and gaming and, in addition to the standard formats, VIZIO also supports SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D, the high quality, visually lossless 3D format that enables 3D content to be delivered over 2D infrastructure as well as RealD’s patented side-by-side format.
Wireless Internet access is available through built-in Dual-Band 802.11n Wi-Fi, allowing viewers to enjoy TV shows, social networking, photos and more with just the push of a button on the Bluetooth Remote
The set also features Internet applications as well, such as Amazon Video On Demand, Facebook, Flickr, Netflix, Pandora, VUDU, Twitter, and more.
“Our Theater 3D technology is a significant step forward in bringing a high-quality, immersive experience home to consumers,” stated Matthew McRae, VIZIO CTO.
“The bright and flicker-free images, extremely low crosstalk, and comfortable glasses allow extended viewing of content without the side-effects associated with the first generation of 3D technology. This is increasingly important as more content is released and 3D gaming goes mainstream,” the company’s CTO added.
The set will be available through Costco Wholesale and Sam’s Club for an MSRP of $3,500 which is, indeed, a pretty heavy price point, but we must not forget the fact that we’re talking about a widescreen, 65-inch product with 3D capabilities here
