"Irvine, CA – Jan. 5, 2020 – VIZIO, Inc., America’s fastest growing Quantum Dot company, today strengthens its position in the TV industry with the introduction of its 2020 4K HDR Smart TV collection. VIZIO is introducing more Quantum Color models with best-in-class quantum dot performance and industry-leading peak brightness – built on VIZIO’s most powerful full array local dimming backlight with next gen TV processing. The 2020 lineup also features VIZIO’s first-ever OLED TV. From the accessible 40-inch V-Series® to a massive all-new 85-inch P-Series® Quantum X, the 2020 SmartCast TV lineup is VIZIO’s highest performing and widest range ever. It also boasts SmartCast 4.0 and the all-new VIZIO Voice Remote, making it easier than ever for users to stream, control, and share their favorite content on any VIZIO SmartCast TV.
“Our mission has always been to make cutting-edge picture quality and a best-in-class smart TV user experience attainable for everyone,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “We’re excited with the performance improvements that our new IQ video processors and ProGaming Engine bring to our 2020 lineup, especially when combined with VIZIO TVs that offer the highest performance Quantum Color and peak brightness in the industry. Plus, utilizing the new processing power to optimize the strengths of OLED picture quality proves that VIZIO’s leadership in the TV industry has never been stronger.”
Across the 2020 lineup, VIZIO’s SmartCast TVs add enhanced performance and more intelligence than ever before thanks to a first-of-its-kind processor for the U.S. market, as well as a new, powerful gaming engine. With incredible 64-bit image processing and 1 GHz CPU, the all-new VIZIO IQ processors add multi-step algorithms to more accurately upscale HD/FHD to 4K resolution, reduce noise and artifacts, and intelligently enhance detail and contrast with pixel-level brightness adjustments. The new 3D color engine works in concert with auto calibration to improve color accuracy and create an image that is true to the artist’s original intent. The premium IQ Ultra™ processor also enriches picture processing with AI and machine learning capabilities.
New for the 2020 lineup, is the introduction of VIZIO’s ProGaming Engine that takes Xbox One X and PlayStation® 4 performance to the next level with support for Variable Refresh Rates (VRR), AMD FreeSync, and resolutions up to 4K at 120Hz for greater motion clarity and smoother gameplay. The ProGaming Engine’s faster response time and the input’s lower lag further improve picture detail so that users can see every action and can respond faster than ever. In addition, Auto Game Mode with auto low latency is automatically engaged when console gameplay is detected, so users can enjoy the highest gaming performance every time they play.
In addition to upgrading the award-winning Quantum Color models, VIZIO is introducing its first-ever 4K OLED TVs in 55 and 65-inch sizes. Built for the cinephile, the TV’s self-emitting pixels offer true blacks, infinite contrast, and unmatched viewing angles, making it the perfect option for watching your favorite films in a darkened home theater. Backed by VIZIO’s IQ Ultra™ processor for unparalleled color, contrast, and clarity, the luxurious, borderless 4mm thin display blends into any space and is made to pair perfectly with the VIZIO Elevate Sound Bar, a 5.1.4 channel Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio solution with revolutionary rotating front height speakers."
