VIZIO P-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TVs will start at $999.99 for the 50" class, with 55", 60", 65"and 70" class screen sizes also available.
The new series is featuring four times the resolution of 1080p and full-Array LED backlighting with up to 72 Active LED Zones. Each
zone dynamically adjusts to control the backlight based on content on-screen, offering higher contrast levels than edge-lit LED sets.
VIZIO has been developing its Spatial Scaling Engine, which transforms 1080p Full HD entertainment into near Ultra HD. The P-Series TVs have been designed to support 4K Ultra HD streaming from providers like Netflix and later this year, Amazon Instant Video and UltraFlix. Amazon Instant Video customers will be able to purchase Ultra HD movies and TV episodes with select Ultra HD titles available at no extra charge to Amazon Prime members through Prime Instant Video.
The new TV also feature VIZIO's Clear Action Rate 960, which offers an effective refresh rate of 240 Hz for motion clarity when watching fast action scenes such as sports. Images are further enhanced by Advanced Color Management and Active Pixel Tuning technologies.
The TVs support for the HEVC H.265 codec and 802.11ac dual-band WiFi for a faster streaming experience. These advancements enable consumers to stream Ultra HD content through apps like Netflix and launching later this year, Amazon Instant Video and UltraFlix, with HDCP 2.2 support built-in for playback of protected Ultra HD content. The TV also support the latest HDMI 2.0 standards.
VIZIO Internet Apps Plus, the company's latest connected platform, offers consumers second-screen interactivity through Netflix and YouTube and allows users to search for content on the corresponding app on their Android and Apple iOS mobile devices. When the TV and device are on the same WiFi network, users can click to play the content on the big screen, controlling playback on the TV from their device. VIZIO Internet Apps Plus features popular apps like YouTube, Hulu Plus, iHeartRadio, Spotify and Pandora, among others.
The P-Series Ultra HD collection is powered by the V6 six-core processor, comprised of a quad-core GPU plus dual-core CPU. VIZIO also also enabled VM50, a dedicated motion and picture-processing engine that renders every image, including Ultra HD content, with detail.
