Wie zu erwar­ten über­schla­gen sich die Neu­an­kün­dun­gen von Ultra HD Fern­se­hern und Dis­plays auf der dies­jäh­ri­gen CES. Doch wenn ein Her­stel­ler das Wort „güns­tig“ umschreibt, dann begin­nen wilde Spe­ku­la­tio­nen.

Der ame­ri­ka­ni­sche TV-Her­stel­ler Vizio kün­digte seine neuen Pre­mium XVT-LED-Fern­seh­ge­räte mit Thea­ter 3D und Ultra HD Auf­lö­sung an. Es wird drei Modelle mit Panel­grö­ßen von 55, 65 und 70 Zoll geben. Beim Design hal­ten die Inge­nieure aus Irvine an der neuen M-Serie fest, wel­che eben­falls im dies­jäh­ri­gen Lin­eup auf­ge­führt ist.

Aber was viel wich­ti­ger ist, Vizio möchte als einer der „ers­ten Tech­no­lo­gie-Inno­va­to­ren die teu­ere, neue Ultra HD-Tech­no­lo­gie der brei­ten Masse zugäng­lich machen“.

Günstige Ultra HD Fernseher für die Massen

Das klingt doch nach einem Kampf­preis. Viele hof­fen, dass Ame­ri­kas größ­ter HD-Fern­se­her-Anbie­ter eine neue Preis­ka­te­go­rie für Ultra HD-Fern­se­her ein­führt, damit andere Her­stel­ler nach­zie­hen und die „breite Masse“ auch wirk­lich in den den Genuss der 4K-Auf­lö­sung kommt.

Preise oder einen genauen Aus­lie­fe­rungs­zeit­raum nannte Vizio nicht. Es heißt die Modelle wer­den „spä­ter die­ses Jahr“ erschei­nen. Allzu große Hoff­nung darf man sich aber nicht machen. Der Preis wird sicher­lich noch über­halb der 10.000$ ange­sie­delt sein. Alles dar­un­ter wäre bei den Pro­duk­ti­ons­kos­ten von Ultra HD-Gerä­ten nicht ren­ta­bel.

VIZIO Reveals Expan­ded 2013 HDTV Collec­tion Adding Ultra HD and Enhan­ced Smart TVs to Alre­ady Award-Win­ning All-LED HDTV Line-Up

Three Pro­duct Lines Offer Con­su­mers HDTVs Sized from 22″ to 80″, Fea­turing New Modern Indus­trial Design with Slim to Nearly Bor­der­less Frames

Irvine, CA and Las Vegas, NV – Janu­ary 7, 2013 – VIZIO, America’s #1 large size HDTV com­pany1, revea­led today its expan­ded 2013 HDTV collec­tion, high­ligh­ted by an all-new line of M-Series Razor LED™ Smart TVs fea­turing an ele­gant, modern ultra-slim bezel and razor-thin pro­file. VIZIO’s new HDTV line-up con­ti­nues to demons­trate the brand’s lea­dership in HDTV tech­no­logy with advan­ced inno­va­ti­ons like its first Ultra High Defi­ni­tion TVs (4K2K), part of the brand’s flagship XVT-Series, as well as the all-new, all-LED2 E-Series line which fea­tures a sleek, slim-frame design and advan­ced Smart TV fea­tures and Thea­ter 3D™ avail­able on select models. Ran­ked „Hig­hest in Cust­o­mer Satis­fac­tion with HDTVs“ by J.D. Power and Asso­cia­tes3, VIZIO will show­case its new 22″ to 80″ sized collec­tion at the 2013 Con­su­mer Elec­tro­nics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV.

VIZIO’s new M-Series Razor LED Smart TVs are the must-have cen­ter­pie­ces for today’s modern fami­lies. The all-new M-Series signa­ture design in screen sizes of 32″ (M321i), 40″ (M401i), 47″ (M471i), 50″ (M501d), 55″ (M551d), 60″ (M601d), 65″ (M651d), 70″ (M701d) and 80″ (M801d),pair supe­rior pic­ture qua­lity with an ultra-slim frame for a more immer­sive view­ing expe­ri­ence. The ultra-thin bezels of the M-Series vir­tually vanish next to the near edge-to-edge glass screen for a signa­ture look that updates any room’s appearance. Uni­que inte­rior metal con­struc­tion in the base and neck adds sta­bi­lity while a beau­ti­fully finis­hed exte­rior com­ple­ments the design and helps set the new stan­dard for afforda­ble HDTV luxury.

The M-Series family uti­li­zes a blend of thought­ful design detailing, mini­ma­list con­struc­tion and pre­mium mate­ri­als to create a line of HDTVs con­su­mers will be proud to show­case in their homes,“ said Scott McMa­ni­gal, VIZIO VP of Design. „The sleek, near bezel-free design redu­ces dis­trac­tions and enhan­ces the rich pic­ture qua­lity allo­wing for a supe­rior all-pic­ture view­ing expe­ri­ence.“

Buil­ding on its lea­dership as the #1 brand in the U.S. for WiFi flat-panel TVs4, VIZIO’s new M-Series Razor LED Smart TVs fea­ture a best-in-class con­nec­ted TV expe­ri­ence with the latest pic­ture qua­lity tech­no­lo­gies. Fea­tures like advan­ced local dim­ming, 240Hz refresh rate with Smooth Motion for the 50″ and lar­ger models and a brigh­ter, fli­cker-free Thea­ter 3D™ expe­ri­ence with light­weight, bat­tery-free glas­ses, build on the M-Series fran­chise. All of the new M-Series units offer VIZIO Inter­net Apps® (V.I.A.) allo­wing con­su­mers to enjoy their favo­rite apps like Ama­zon Instant Video, Crackle, Face­book®, HuluPlus, M-Go, Net­flix®, Pan­dora®, VUDU, YouTube® and more. The award-win­ning Smart TV plat­form offers the industry’s easiest out-of-box expe­ri­ence, desi­gned to allow users of all expe­ri­ence levels to quickly breeze through set-up and start watching TV or browse their favo­rite apps. A new con­ve­ni­ence fea­ture for 2013, VIZIO’s M-Series models will include Wi-Fi Direct uni­ver­sal remote con­trols with back­lit keys, pro­vi­ding an intui­tive way to con­trol the ent­ire home thea­ter without nag­ging codes and pro­gramming.

The new VIZIO M-Series line-up offers con­su­mers a bet­ter enter­tain­ment expe­ri­ence with a clean, indus­trial design that now matches the supe­rior pic­ture qua­lity and great Smart TV expe­ri­ence we are known for,“ said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Tech­no­logy Offi­cer. „The M-Series line is the per­fect com­bi­na­tion of lea­ding tech­no­lo­gies, high­ligh­ted by the easiest out-of-the-box expe­ri­ence, most popu­lar TV apps on the mar­ket and an immer­sive, all pic­ture view­ing expe­ri­ence.“

In addi­tion to an enhan­ced line of M-Series Razor LED Smart HDTVs, VIZIO will also be unvei­ling its first Ultra HDTV offe­rings this year at CES. With four-times the reso­lu­tion of Full HD 1080p, the pre­mium XVT-Series Ultra HD Razor LED Smart TVs with Thea­ter 3D offer the ulti­mate in reso­lu­tion and pic­ture qua­lity. VIZIO will launch the 55″ (XVT551d), 65″ (XVT651d) and 70″ (XVT701d) Ultra HD units later this year, making it one of the first tech­no­logy inno­va­tors to bring the expen­sive new tech­no­logy to main­stream con­su­mers.

Fea­turing the same sleek, indus­trial design of VIZIO’s new M-Series line, the new XVT-Series screen size clas­ses of 55″, 65″ and 70″ Ultra HDTVs also boast an ultra-slim frame and Razor LED tech­no­logy, packing bril­li­ant cla­rity, color and richer detail into the most immer­sive, all-pic­ture view­ing expe­ri­ence pos­si­ble. VIZIO’s Thea­ter 3D tech­no­logy inclu­ded in the new XVT-Series takes movies, sports and gaming into a new dimen­sion while an effec­tive refresh rate of 240 Hz keeps even the most fast-moving pic­tures smooth and sta­ble.

As con­tent crea­tors con­ti­nue to push the limits to pro­duce ever-increa­sin­gly rich and intri­cate worlds for their sto­ries, we’re exci­ted to be one of the first major brands to bring pre­mium, Ultra HD reso­lu­tion into the home,“ said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Tech­no­logy Offi­cer. „Ultra HD is the latest must-have upgrade for the home thea­ter, giving dis­cerning fans of our flagship XVT-Series access to cut­ting-edge tech­no­lo­gies and an unpre­ce­den­ted high defi­ni­tion pic­ture.“

While the M- and XVT-Series will be unvei­led at CES and avail­able later in the year, VIZIO’s popu­lar entry-level E-Series line-up is avail­able now and offers con­su­mers an all-LED2 collec­tion made afforda­ble for every hou­se­hold. Brin­ging superb pic­ture qua­lity to con­su­mers at a great value, the E-Series HDTVs have alre­ady seen great suc­cess at retail with large screen sizes of 70″ (E701i), 65″ (E650i), 60″ (E601i) and 55″ (E551i), as well as smal­ler units in 50″ (E500i and E500d), 42″ (E420d), 39″ (E390i), 29″ (E291i), 24″ (E241i) and 22″ (E221) avail­able to con­su­mers. The sleek, slim-frame LED pro­duct line offers advan­ced local dim­ming tech­no­logy on 42″ screens and above, SRS Stu­dio­Sound HD™, a DTS tech­no­logy, for clear audio and more HDMI inputs when com­pa­red to com­pe­ti­tive brands, allo­wing for expan­ded enter­tain­ment opti­ons.

VIZIO’s new 2013 HDTV collec­tion will be on dis­play at 2013 CES at the Wynn Hotel’s Mou­ton Ball­room by appoint­ment only. The M-Series units will be avail­able later this year and addi­tio­nal details on the XVT-Series Ultra HD Razor LED Smart TVs with Thea­ter 3D to be announ­ced clo­ser to com­mer­cial avail­a­bi­lity. Con­su­mers can find the new all-LED E-Series line both in-store and online through key retailers such as Ama­zon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Tar­get, VIZIO.com and Wal­m­art.
