VIZIO Brings All-New D-Series Collection to Canada, Boasting Excellent Picture Quality Along With Smart TV and 4K Ultra HD In Select Models
Latest Collection Features Full-Array LED Backlighting with Up to 16 Active LED Zones® for Deeper Black Levels and Added Contrast
IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 24, 2016 — VIZIO, Inc. today announced the availability of its all-new D-Series collection across Canada. The new line-up provides value-conscious consumers an array of screen size options, with access to a range of step-up features like Smart TV and 4K Ultra HD on select models. The D-Series line-up offers Full-Array LED backlighting with up to 16 Active LED Zones1 for excellent picture quality and is rolling out now to Best Buy and Costco both in-store and online and to Amazon.com.
The VIZIO D-Series collection gives consumers brilliant picture quality thanks to Full-Array LED backlighting technology on most models, allowing for advanced control of LEDs resulting in superior light uniformity and picture performance as compared to edge-lit TVs. Up to 16 Active LED Zones dynamically adjust to match the light and dark portions of on-screen content, culminating in deeper black levels and added contrast. Clear Action™ 240 offers enhanced motion clarity with 120Hz effective refresh rate achieved with backlight scanning, and powerful image processing so sports and fast-action scenes are seen with stunningly sharp detail.
“VIZIO’s all-new D-Series collection is incredibly versatile, providing consumers with an affordable entry point to Smart TV and 4K Ultra HD technologies,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “Now that 4K movies and shows are becoming more prevalent, D-Series democratizes 4K Ultra HD technologies, boasting excellent picture quality enhanced by Full-Array LED backlighting and Active LED Zones for a more accurate picture.”
Select models between 24″ to 70″ class screen sizes in the D-Series collection are equipped with VIZIO’s latest generation Smart TV platform, VIZIO Internet Apps Plus®, giving consumers the power to stream the hottest movies, TV shows, music and more right to their TV. The seamless Smart TV experience is possible thanks to built-in WiFi for quick and easy setup, and access to popular apps such as Netflix, Spotify, YouTube and more.
Select large-size models from 40″ to 65″ class screen sizes in the D-Series line-up deliver 4K Ultra HD resolution with over 8.3 million pixels, bringing more detail to every image and displaying four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD. Consumers with D-Series Ultra HD Smart TVs will have access to Ultra HD apps to enjoy a growing range of Ultra HD shows and movies. Equipped with an ultra-fast 802.11ac dual-band WiFi and VIZIO’s V6 six-core processor, the D-Series Ultra HD TV models allow for a fast, easy-to-use streaming experience, with access to the latest app options2 including Ultra HD content from Netflix, UltraFlix and Toon Goggles3. When viewing Full HD or lower resolution content, users will still enjoy enhanced picture quality with VIZIO’s powerful Spatial Scaling Engine, which transforms 720p or 1080p HD content to create a beautifully upscaled Ultra HD resolution image with better accuracy and clarity to provide an all-around more immersive viewing experience4.
