13 Jan 2010 | Rasmus Larsen |

Vizio presents their new 58-inch LCD-TV XVTPRO580CD in 21:9 aspect ratio. It’s the second 21:9 flat panel TV to hit the market after Philips introduced their Cinema 21:9 last year.<br /><br /><h3>58-inch Vizio TV 21:9</h3>The 21:9 aspect ratio is used in cinemas worldwide and most new premiere movies are shot in an aspect ratio close to 21:9. The 21:9 aspect ratio has been utilized on projectors for several years, but recently <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1250060925 target=_blank><b>Philips introduced the world's first 21:9 TV</b></a>. Now Vizio follow in Philips' footsteps and is launching a 2 inch larger 21:9 TV called XVTPRO580CD. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/vizio219-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/vizio219-1.jpg" alt="Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD</i></p><br />The 58-inch is 2-inches larger than Philips Cinema 21:9 but has the same resolution of 2560x1080 pixels. The Vizio 21:9 incorporates a LCD panel by panel manufacturer AUO which recently announced that they would produce 21:9 panels. This also enables other manufacturers than Vizio to introduce 21:9 format TVs in 2010.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/vizio219-2l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/vizio219-2.jpg" alt="Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD</i></p><br />Vizio is one of the major U.S. TV manufacturers and unlike Philips Cinema 21:9, Vizio’s 21:9 TV has a LED backlight. Vizio states that the TV has a 1.000.000:1 dynamic contrast ratio due to local dimming as well as 120 Hz and wireless network capability. <br /><br />The remote is driven by the Bluetooth system which means that you don’t need to point directly at the TV in order to switch channels. The remote also has a QWERTY keyboard.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/vizio219-3l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/vizio219-3.jpg" alt="Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD</i></p><br />Vizio’s new 21:9 flat panel TV is aimed at movie enthusiasts that wants to watch movies in the 2.35:1 format (21:9) at home. We can’t help thinking that maybe a projector would be a wiser choice, though...<br /><br />Vizio 21:9 XVTPRO580CD hits the U.S. later this year. The price has not been announced.<br /><br />More <a href=/ces2010fair.php><b>CES 2010 news here</b></a>.
