I’m in my 40s. I remember when there were only like five channels, and when you had to get up to change the channel. It’s partly because of my age and partly because of my love for technology that I am always fascinated by the latest in televisions because of all the wonderful capabilities that they have. The television that caught my interest recently is hard to classify as just a television. It’s also a piece of technology. The product I am speaking of is the all-new VIZIO SmartCast™ P-Series™ Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display™ currently available at Best Buy.
The VIZIO SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD High Dynamic Range Home Theater Messaging Display launched this month at Best Buy. The P-Series™ features High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision content support and Ultra Color Spectrum, providing a dramatically different visual experience with astonishing brightness, radiant contrast, and captivating color. Full-Array LED backlighting and up to 128 Active LED Zones™ deliver exceptional light uniformity and deeper, richer black levels. This innovative and very cool new technology allows people like you and I to interact with our televisions and entertainment now more than ever.
This display series is the the first 4K ultra HD display to feature High Dynamic Range with Dolby Vision, Ultra Color Spectrum, Google Cast™ built-in, with a powerful 6” Android™ Tablet Remote included.
What’s that? The display comes with a tablet remote? Yep! This powerful 6” Android tablet comes with the VIZIO SmartCast app preinstalled. The app allows you to browse content by genre across multiple apps all at once. You can navigate and browse through movies, TV shows, and music with simple tap, swipe and voice-based commands. Folks with IP-based set-top boxes from DirecTV® and Dish® services are even able to surf live tv, with more services to be added in the future. (See vizio.com/smartcast for details.) Once you find the content you want to view on the tablet, you tap and that content plays on the P-Series™’ stunning display.
That’s not all! Have you heard of Google Cast? The new VIZIO SmartCast P-Series has it! With Google Cast built-in, you can cast from thousands of Google Cast-enabled apps that you already know and love, including apps such as YouTube and Netflix.
If sports and action movies are your thing, you will surely appreciate the powerful image processing of the P-Series™ with up to Clear Action™ 960 that combines a blazing 240Hz effective refresh rate achieved with backlight scanning for sharper detail in fast action scenes. With all of this and more on display, the P-Series™ is a whole new way to watch.
The VIZIO SmartCast™ P-Series™ Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display will certainly change the way you watch tv, the way you experience entertainment will never be the same again.
