At CES 2011 Vizio has now introduced a 50-inch 21:9 TV and a 58-inch 21:9 TV.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/lvizio2192011-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/vizio2192011-1.jpg" alt="Vizio 21:9 TV" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Vizio 21:9 TV, image source: Engadget.com</i></p><br />The two new models are called XVT3D500CM (50”) and XVT3D580CM (58”). Details are spare but the model names seem to suggest that both TVs support 3D, and these TV were actually also mentioned in Vizio’s press release about their new Theater 3DTVs with passive 3D technology.<br /><br />The TVs utilize the extra wide 2560x1080 pixel resolution in the 21:9 aspect ratio that is widely used in cinemas. With a 21:9 TV you don’t need to worry about those black bars at the top and bottom and you don’t need to stretch or cut movies to fit the TV.<br /><br />The 50-inch model comes with 240 Hz and the 58-inch model has a 120 Hz circuit. VIZIO Internet Apps such as Netflix, Amazon Video On Demand, VUDU, Pandora, Facebook, Flickr, Rhapsody, Twitter, and Yahoo! TV Widgets have been integrated. Additionally a Bluetooth QWERTY keyboard is supported.<br /><br />Vizio’s 58-inch 21:9 TV feature the Razor LED system which is an Edge LED backlight with limited dimming in a few zones. The Edge LED system creates a thinner and lighter TV but for a full local dimming LED system you need to go for the 50-inch model that comes with Vizio's TruLED system. Both models have 5 HDMI inputs.<br /><br />No dates or prices have been disclosed yet. To learn more visit <a href=http://www.vizio.com target=_blank><b>www.vizio.com</b></a>
