TVs that use organic light emitting diode displays deliver the best picture quality available and generally cost a lot more than LCD screens. I saw Vizio ' s OLED TV in person at its CES 2020 suite and at first glance it looked as good as I 'd expect from any OLED TV .

There's a lot to cover with Vizio's latest announcements, but let's start with updates to SmartCast, the software that powers Vizio products.


SmartCast is getting a speed and performance increase, partly thanks to the updated hardware, and through software improvements. Older model TVs dating to 2016 have received the same software upgrade, which should improve their performance as well.

Movies Anywhere is now available for SmartCast TV owners, and Apple TV, as well as NBC's Peacock streaming service, will be added to the app lineup later this summer.

The SmartCast mobile app is getting a new look, with the goal of making it easier for users to control their TV from a mobile phone.

V-, M- and P-Series TVs

As for hardware, well, that's where things become more interesting.

Sony's latest soundbar mimics spatial audio with a 3.1 setup

  Sony's latest soundbar mimics spatial audio with a 3.1 setup Sony showed it was serious about soundbars back in 2018, when it unveiled the HT-ZF9, the first 3.1-channel soundbar with Dolby Atmos and virtual surround sound technology. The company’s soundbar lineup is now pretty extensive, ranging from entry-level kit to complete set ups with price tags to match. The latest addition, the HT-G700, is a mid-range workhorse that offers Sony’s vertical surround engine tech at a reasonable cost. According to theAccording to the company, a combo of front- and upward-firing speakers inside the soundbar and an accompanying wireless subwoofer helps the 3.1 channel device (which can upscale regular stereo audio to 7.1.2) carefully throw sound around the room for an immersive audio experience.

Vizio has announced new televisions for 2020, including its first OLED TV . Also new for 2020 will be the VIZIO Elevate Sound Bar , a 5.1.4 channel Dolby Atmos and DTS:X audio VIZIO SmartCast televisions support Apple’ s HomeKit and AirPlay 2 protocol, along with Amazon Alexa and Google

Vizio has IQ Ultra and IQ Active processors that power the TVs. The processors join a new ProGaming Engine, aimed at improving graphics for gamers with support for 4K resolution at up to a refresh rate of 120Hz. That should lead to clearer and crisper images during intense gaming sessions, all of which is automatically turned on, thanks to Auto Game Mode.

The V-Series, Vizio's value-focused 4K HDR product lineup, features screen sizes from 40-75 inches and prices spanning $229.99-$799.99. The V-Series includes Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG — all of which are fancy terms that basically mean the V-Series will support various video formats, providing bright and vivid colors.

The M-Series Quantum is Vizio's mid-range lineup and adds high-end features into the mix, while keeping the prices lower than the P-Series. The M-Series ranges from $399.99 for a 50-inch model, to $749.99 for a 65-inch model. The MQ8-Series Quantum models will be exclusive to Amazon and $50 more expensive than the MQ7-Series Quantum models, due to having 90 local dimming zones compared to 30, 800 nits of peak brightness compared to 600, and 85 percent color volume compared to 75 percent.

NBC' s fall 2020- 2021 lineup is coming together, and despite a chaotic year of shutdowns and production delays, the slate is still full of Not only will the network miss the huge boost in revenue and ratings it gets from the event, but the move could alter its scheduling window, depending on when the

Today , at CES 2020, Vizio announced its new 2020 TV lineup that includes several new models of its mainstream V-Series, M-Series, P-Series and P-Series Quantum screens as well its first -ever OLED TV and a monstrous 85-inch version of the P-Series Quantum X that has been updated for 2020.

In other words, you're going to pay more for a brighter and more colorful picture on the MQ8-Series.

The M-Series has a variable refresh rate that ranges from 48-60Hz, so you won't be able to take advantage of full 120Hz gaming. For that, you'll need to look at the P-Series Quantum and P-Series Quantum X.

Both P-Series lines switch to Vizio's IQ Ultra processor, have a 120Hz refresh rate, and the 85-inch model tops out at 3,000 nits of peak brightness. That model also costs $2,999.99 and won't launch until this fall.

The 65-inch and 75-inch versions of the standard P-Series Quantum and the P-Series Quantum X are available now, with prices ranging from $1,499.99 for the 65-inch Quantum to $1,999.99 for larger P-Series Quantum X. With the P-Series, you're getting more local dimming zones, which make blacks appear darker and truer to life, and a range of peak brightness and color volume — all of which provide a better overall experience when compared to the M-Series and V-Series.

If you're willing to be patient, Vizio's 55-inch and 65-inch OLED TVs will be available this fall. Most major smartphone makers use OLED displays in their high-end phones, like the iPhone 11 Pro or Galaxy S20, because they're energy-efficient and provide brighter, more vivid colors while also showing truer blacks because each pixel can be turned off.

All right, ready to talk sound? Vizio is launching two soundbar lines: M-Series and V-Series. Like their namesake, both products are designed for specific price categories with varying features to match.

The V-Series starts at $179.99 for a 2.1 system, with a 5-inch wireless subwoofer and Dolby Audio and DTS Virtual:X sound. The 5.1 V-Series, which is $249.99, has 5.1 audio, and a 5-inch subwoofer. Both models have an output of 96dB.

There's only one M-Series model, priced at $149.99 with 2.1 audio. It's an all-in-one setup, so you don't have to worry about where to place wireless speakers or subwoofers.

The V21 is available today, while the V51 and M-Series 2.1 will launch on July 5 and July 26, respectively.

Oh, and we can't forget about the new Elevate 5.1.4 soundbar.

What makes it so special are its rotating drivers, which have the ability to change their angle to add height to the overall sound when using Dolby Atmos or when DTS:X content is detected.

The Elevate soundbar will cost $999.99, with its full launch expected later this year.

Vizio's 2021 lineup sure has a lot to offer, with price points and performance options for anyone. We can't wait to check all of it out, especially that OLED TV and Elevate soundbar combination. That's going to be a fine-looking and impressive-sounding setup.
