Vizio's 65 & 120" Reference TVs have local dimming

Vizio has unveiled their best TVs yet with “unprecedented picture quality”. The 65 and 120-inch TVs feature 4K resolution, local dimming, 10-bit color, “Ultra-Color spectrum”, and powerful speakers. They will be available in 2014.

Vizio: Our best TVs yet

Vizio says that its new Reference series is the result of over two years of research and development, and they have aimed to “redefine best-in-class”. The new TVs were announced at CES 2014 and come with some of very exciting new TV technologies.

The new Reference TVs will arrive in a 65-inch size and a gigantic 120-inch size, which was also the largest Ultra HD TV at CES, despite claims from other TV makers. The TVs deliver 800 cd/m2 brightness, 10-bit color reproduction, and supports an expanded color gamut, close – but not full – to Rec.2020, which has been included in the Ultra HD standard.

Vizio says that the TVs can reproduce a much higher dynamic range than regular TVs, and that the 384 active LED zones implemented in the backlit LED module can help reproduce very deep blacks. However, in our to utilize the wider color gamut you also need video content matching the color gamut, which is currently hard to come by. Vizio also promises excellent gaming performance due to very low latency, and a mode offering 120 frames per second.

- "VIZIO started with a clean sheet of paper and asked, 'what would be the ultimate TV if there were no limitations or need to compromise?' The result is the all-new Reference Series, which represents two years of research and development across every aspect of the platform," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO.

Vizio has also paid attention to sound, and has implemented a powerful soundbar below the TV that can imitate 5.1 surround, “rivaling the best home theater solutions”. In addition, the two Reference TVs support HEVC decoding, HDVP 2.2, and HDMI 2.0 inputs. The Smart TV platform offers access to TV apps is powered by a quad-core GPU and dual-core CPU.

Vizio’s 65 and 120-inch Reference TVs will be available sometime in 2014. No pricing details have been announced, but expect they to be costly.
