VIZIO Adds 21:9 Cinemawide LED Smart TV

July 6, 2012
VIZIO has released its XVT Series Cinemawide LED Smart TV with Theater 3D, a 21:9 ultra-widescreen TV.
The 21:9 Cinemawide screen is wider than the standard 16:9 screen found on most HDTVs, allowing it to perfectly fit the 2.35:1 aspect ratio used for most major Hollywood films. Movie lovers no longer need to see black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, giving them more room to enjoy the crisp, clear picture. The unique 2560 x 1080p screen and Edge Lit Razor LED technology deliver HD at a higher resolution than conventional 1920x1080 resolution.
“As the first to bring a 21:9 aspect ratio, ultra-wide screen 3D HDTV of its kind to the U.S. market, we’re proud to be giving consumers the opportunity to view movies the way they were meant to be enjoyed,” said Matt McRae, chief technology officer, VIZIO. “Not only does the Cinemawide HDTV eliminate the black bars, it also allows movie and tech enthusiasts to get the most out of their HD and 3D experiences with excellent picture quality and VIZIO Internet Apps.”
The XVT Series Cinemawide HDTV features VIZIO’s Theater 3D technology. VIZIO’s Theater 3D technology delivers the state-of-the-art 3D technology used at your local movie theater into your home to produce an immersive 3D experience. Four pairs of lightweight, inexpensive and comfortable battery-free 3D glasses are included with each Cinemawide 3D HDTV.
The VIZIO Cinemawide provides the ultimate smart TV experience. Users can enjoy full-screen, full-resolution 16:9 HDTV on the right side of the screen while accessing VIZIO Internet Apps in a column on the left side of the screen. This allows viewers to check scores, catch up on news, or a share a tweet all while watching TV. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect to the Internet and a premium Bluetooth universal remote control with full keyboard lets users type search and browse apps with ease.
The VIZIO model XVT3D580CM - 58-inch class Cinemawide LED Smart TV with Theater 3D is now available exclusively on with a special limited time offer of $2499 - original price $2799.
