03 Jan 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

US-based Vizio has announced new 3DTVs ranging from 22-inch to 71-inch sizes. The Theater 3D range is based on the passive 3D system, resulting in much cheaper 3D glasses but less detailed 3D pictures.

LG announced their passive 3DTVs a few days ago and now Vizio has announced a total of 21 models from 22 to 71 inches based on the passive 3D technology. Vizio has named their new range Theater 3D.

The passive 3D system utilizes polarized 3D glasses similar to those you get in the 3D cinema. This means battery-free glasses, no flicker, reduced crosstalk and a brighter picture but it also means that the 3D picture resolution is halved compared to the active 3D system that all 2010 3DTVs use.

The higher-priced models come with LED and local dimming and the cheaper models with Edge LED. Two models are also based on the extra wide 21:9 format with 2560x1080 resolution for a “no black bars” cinematic experience.

VIA Apps and Google TV

All of the 21 models have the VIA Apps system; including Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, VUDU, Pandora, Facebook, Flickr, Rhapsody, Twitter, and Yahoo! TV Widgets. The two XVT3D476SV and XVT3D556SV models also have Google TV functionality called VIA Plus.

Most of the models feature a Bluetooth-enabled remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard and Wi-Fi.

All of the Theater 3D models should arrive in stores in 2011, but we await exact pricing and availability details. To learn more see
