VIZIO has unveiled the 2017 E Series TV lineup. The E Series falls at the lower end of the company’s TV range but is still loaded with features. The 2017 E Series includes nine models, sized from 32 up to 80 inches. The 75- and 80-inch models are new screen sizes for the E Series, and the whole line features built-in Chromecast to stream content from mobile devices. All models except the 32-incher have an Ultra HD resolution, and all models 55 inches and larger support HDR10. Prices range from $209.99 to $3,399.99.
VIZIO, Inc. unveiled its all-new 2017 VIZIO SmartCast E-Series collection. Highlighted by 4K Ultra HD High Dynamic Range models for the 55″ class screen sizes and above, the collection also includes Full HD and Ultra HD models, ranging from 32″ to 80″ class sizes. All E-Series models feature Chromecast built-in, the easiest way for viewers to stream apps they know and love, and the new 75″ and 80″ class size XXL 4K HDR big screens also boast picture quality technologies like High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support. The VIZIO SmartCast E-Series collection ranges in price from $209.99 for the 32″ class size to $3,399.99 for the 80″ class size. Both the 75″ and 80″ models are available now at VIZIO.com, with the entire collection coming soon to VIZIO.com and retailers nationwide, including Best Buy, Costco, Walmart and Sam’s Club.
The VIZIO SmartCast E-Series collection is known for bringing uncompromised value to consumers. With advanced picture quality technologies like High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support on the 55″ class size and above, the E-Series is one of the most feature-rich entry-level options available to consumers. Unlike edge-lit LED backlight displays, VIZIO utilizes a powerful Full-Array LED backlight and up to 16 Active LED Zones that dynamically adjust to onscreen content, producing dark, inky black levels much richer than edge-lit LED backlight displays can deliver. High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support further enhances big screen viewing by offering greater depth and more vibrant contrast. HDR10 enables compatibility with HDR Blu-ray players from Samsung (UHD-K8500) and Philips (BDP7501/F7), as well as PS4 and Xbox One S game consoles. Clear Action 240 technology and an ultra-fast 120Hz Effective Refresh Rate, achieved with backlight scanning, ensures action-packed scenes are consistently smooth, stable and realistic.
“Our E-Series collection is known for offering features that simply aren’t found on other entry-level models in the market, and the new 2017 E-Series collection is no different. With the addition of 75″ and 80″ class screen sizes to the lineup, value-minded shoppers who want to go big now have access to powerful picture quality in an XXL screen,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support provides another reason to upgrade by allowing consumers to get the most out of their HDR Blu-Ray players and game consoles.”
Like every display, sound bar and speaker in the VIZIO SmartCast collection, the all-new E-Series displays allow users to simply stream and control their entertainment. With Chromecast built-in, consumers can simply tap the Cast button in popular Chromecast-enabled apps like Netflix and YouTube to stream their entertainment to the big screen. By downloading the VIZIO SmartCast app, users can control their display from any room in the home, search for content across multiple apps at once and stream shows directly to their E-Series display through the Google Assistant on devices like Google Home. To further simplify the out-of-box experience, an all-new remote is included with all E-Series models to seamlessly allow users to complete the first-time setup of their display without a phone or tablet. Once setup is complete, the remote continues to provide access to the onscreen menu, sidebar settings and more.
