VIZIO has announced the rollout of its second Ultra HD line-up, the all-new 2015 M-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV collection. Backed by the brand’s leadership in Ultra HD technology, the VIZIO M-Series offers a wide range of screen sizes from 43″ to 80″, as well as stunning picture quality and access to several Ultra HD streaming apps.
The collection features a Spatial Scaling Engine to upscale lower resolution content to near 4K Ultra HD picture resolution2, along with Full-Array LED backlighting with up to 32 Active LED Zones, and up to Clear Action 720, which together produce a stunningly beautiful Ultra HD experience.
The all-new VIZIO M-Series Ultra HD Full-Array LED Smart TV collection displays over 8.3 million pixels in every image, four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD, bringing detail and clarity into consumers’ homes. Full-Array LED backlighting offers an even distribution of light for superior uniformity as compared to Edge-Lit TVs, and up to 32 Active LED Zones deliver precise, controlled backlighting with extremely high contrast and deep black levels. Active Pixel Tuning enables pixel-level adjustments of brightness for increased picture accuracy and contrast. For the fast-action lover or sports enthusiast, the M-Series line-up boasts up to Clear Action 720 with a blazing 240Hz effective refresh rate achieved with backlight scanning. These technologies, combined with powerful image processing, allow for sharper detail and ensure fast moving scenes appear clearer than ever.
The M-Series Ultra HD collection gives consumers a great reason to upgrade with additional Ultra HD apps and more native Ultra HD content options available. The 2015 collection features the latest generation VIZIO Smart TV platform, VIZIO Internet Apps Plus, and is equipped with ultra-fast 802.11ac dual-band WiFi and VIZIO’s V6 six-core processor. This translates into a fast, easy-to-use experience for the consumer, with access to the latest app options4 including Ultra HD content from Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, UltraFlix and Toon Goggles5. For users enjoying sports, movies or TV shows produced at 720p or 1080p resolutions, the M-Series is equipped with a powerful Spatial Scaling Engine, which beautifully transforms HD content to create a beautifully upscaled Ultra HD resolution image with better accuracy and clarity to provide an all-around more immersive viewing experience.
Support for HDCP 2.2 allows playback of protected Ultra HD content while the latest HDMI 2.0 standard enables Ultra HD playback at 60Hz. This helps to ensure consumers using next generation cable and satellite receivers, Blu-ray players and game consoles that support Ultra HD content playback, will be able to plug and play those devices with their M-Series Smart TV.
From a design perspective, the VIZIO M-Series has been purposefully crafted with an all-new design that distinguishes it from the rest. Built using select materials, an elegantly slim profile and ultra-thin bezel, the all-new M-Series delivers an immersive, near borderless entertainment experience that complements any room. Additionally, the collection includes a two-sided remote with a backlit QWERTY keyboard, making searching for Ultra HD content and typing a breeze, even in the dark.
