IRVINE, California – VIZIO, Inc. unveiled today its all-new D-Series smart TV collection. The new 2017 models offer value-minded consumers a wide array of picture quality options, including HD, Full HD and 4K Ultra HD in select models in the 43” class size and above. VIZIO D-Series smart TVs feature VIZIO Internet Apps Plus for simple access to stream TV shows and movies from Netflix, iHeartRadio, Xumo and other popular apps (1). The 2017 D-Series collection is available now on VIZIO.com and coming soon to retailers such as Walmart, Sam’s Club, Target and Best Buy, among others. Models range in price from $139.99 for the 24” class size, to $899.99 for the 65” class size.
The 2017 D-Series collection offers superior picture quality thanks to full-array LED backlighting which provides advanced LED control for superior light uniformity and enhanced contrast when compared to edge-lit TVs (2). Up to 12 Active LED Zones® in the full-array LED models dynamically adjust to match the light and dark portions of on-screen content, resulting in brighter whites and deeper, black levels. Sports and action fans will appreciate the image processing benefits of Clear Action™ 180 with 120Hz effective refresh rate achieved with backlight scanning for sharper detail in quick-moving action scenes. Select VIZIO D-Series models support 4K Ultra HD resolution, for four times more detail and clarity in every image compared to 1080p Full HD. Additionally, 4K Ultra HD models support the latest HDMI standards, enabling Ultra HD playback from Ultra HD Blu-ray players, gaming consoles, and next generation cable and satellite receivers.
“The all-new 2017 D-Series collection is incredibly versatile, giving consumers great picture quality collection-wide as well as an affordable entry point to 4K Ultra HD,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “With an ever-expanding selection of 4K movies and shows available to consumers, the VIZIO Internet Apps Plus smart TV platform makes streaming 4K Ultra HD entertainment a simple experience for D-Series users.”
