Vizio Shows Off XVT Pro Series

Vizio is typically regarded as the best of the low-end high definition television manufacturers, but they may be trying to change that image with these latest two offerings.


These two models fit into Vizio’s new line, the XVT Pro Series. The first is the massive, and feature packed, 72″ XVTPRO720SV LED TV. It is a back-lit LCD also sporting wireless HDMI, a total of 5 HDMI inputs,Smart Dimming technology, Internet Apps, and Full HD3d that matches the Blu-ray 3D specification. If your spouse won’t go for hanging a 72″ screen in your house Vizio is also releasing 55″ (XVTPRO550SV) and 47″ XVTPRO470SV) variants, but you’ll have to do without the “Advanced True Wide Polarizer.” These sets will be available in August.


Vizio is also entering another new market as they unveil their new XVTPRO580CD which is a cinema wide screen display. That means thats its rocking a 2560 x 1080p resolution at an aspect ratio of 21 x 9, all within a 58″ brushed-aluminum case. While this set doesn’t include 3D it does have 1 million to 1 Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio, Smart Dimming, and 120 Hz with Smooth Motion technology. You can nab the cinema wide screen display later this year.
