The 21:9 Cinemawide screen is wider than the standard 16:9 screen found on most HDTVs, allowing it to fit the 2.35:1 aspect ratio used for most major Hollywood films. Movie lovers no longer need to see black bars at the top and bottom of the screen, giving them more room to enjoy the picture. The unique 2560 x 1080p screen and Edge Lit Razor LED technology deliver HD at a higher resolution than conventional 1920x1080 resolution. Smart Dimming is also implemented to help with contrast and detail.

The XVT Series Cinemawide HDTV features VIZIO's Theater 3D technology, providing flicker-free 3D. VIZIO Internet Apps also stands as a key component, providing endless entertainment options by bringing thousands of streaming movies, TV shows, and songs directly from the Internet, to the consumer's fingertips.

Four pairs of lightweight, inexpensive and comfortable battery-free 3D glasses are included with each Cinemawide 3D HDTV.

Users can enjoy full-screen, full-resolution 16:9 HDTV on the right side of the screen while accessing VIZIO Internet Apps in a column on the left side of the screen. This allows viewers to check scores, catch up on news, or a share a tweet - all while watching TV. Built-in Wi-Fi makes it easy to connect to the Internet and a Bluetooth universal remote control with full keyboard lets users type search and browse apps.

The VIZIO model XVT3D580CM - 58-inch class Cinemawide LED Smart TV with Theater3D is now available exclusively on for $2799 MSRP, with a limited time, introductory offer of $2499.
