VIZIO has revealed a new range of products that provide audio, home theater, and Internet streaming solutions, all part of VIZIO’s growing Beyond TV lineup.
VIZIO has revealed new products in its Beyond TV lineup.
The new additions to VIZIO’s Beyond TV product portfolio represent an expansion in categories that complement VIZIO’s LCD HDTV lineup.
“Our Beyond TV products have been enthusiastically accepted by consumers, who have recognized that the high-performance value of VIZIO technology is not just limited to HDTVs,” said John Schindler, VP of product development at VIZIO. “Our audio products have been particularly well received, and our overall success in these new categories has helped drive our development of an ever-increasing range of accessories and even more innovative products, such as our high-performance Wireless HD Kit and Wireless HD Internet routers.”
VIZIO’s VHT215 Home Theater Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer offers connectivity options for multiple devices including two HDMI 1.4a inputs, one HDMI 1.4a output with Audio Return Channel support, and one each digital optical audio, coaxial digital audio, and analog stereo inputs.
Featuring integrated wall-mount and table-stand options for installation in any home theater environment, the VHT215 utilizes VIZIO’s ergonomic home theater remote control and new front panel display that communicates volume and input status with the press of a button. The VHT215’s wireless capability enables freedom to place the subwoofer anywhere in the room, as well as the ability to connect with any of VIZIO’s Wireless HD Audio products, including Home Theater Headphones. With no physical connection, uncompressed high definition audio is transmitted between devices at distance up to 60 feet. Available in August 2011, the SRP is $329.
VIZIO’s VHT510 Surround Sound Home Theater Speaker System features surround channel playback from two satellite speakers and impactful low bass produced by a wireless 6.5 inch long-throw subwoofer. This VIZIO surround sound system supports Dolby Digital, DTS, SRS StudioSound HD and SRS TruVolume.
Reducing the need for wires, the subwoofer uses Wireless HD Audio 2.4 GHz technology. The Sound Bar can send High Definition quality audio to other Wireless HD Audio compatible devices like VIZIO Home Theater Wireless Headphones. The Sound Bar features a built-in amplifier and audio receiver, and has a SRP of $389.
VIZIO’s new line of Theater 3D eyewear utilizes a circular polarized 3D filter, and moves the burden of 3D processing into the TV, allowing the Theater 3D eyewear to be free of the batteries and shutter mechanisms inherent in Active Shutter 3D TVs. Theater 3D eyewear can be used to view 3D movies in a majority of movie theaters.
Theater 3D is up to 2X brighter than conventional Active 3D systems, has significantly less crosstalk in comparison to current Active Shutter LCD TVs, handles fast motion with less blurring, has a wider horizontal viewing angle, and eliminates the annoying flicker of Active Shutter 3D systems that often causes eye strain, according to the company.
