1:14 /

From CES 2008, we take a look at the Vizio VP504F. a 50-inch plasma color television.

[ music ] ^M00:00:03 [ background music ] >> What's up guys? I'm Brian Tong with CNET, here at CES 2008. We're hanging out in Visio's crib today. So what we have here is Visio's VP504F. It's a 1080p fifty inch plasma TV. Now here's some cool things about it. It has a thirty thousand to one contrast ratio, so the black levels, they look great on this guy. Now a lot of companies have been struggling with upscaling video. And Visio is taking care of this, they're putting in the H2V silicon Authix [assumed spelling] chip. It's the first to go in a plasma display. So what this is gonna allow you to do is take your 1080i, convert it to 1080p, and even take your SD content and convert it up to 1080p as well. So that's super hot. Now another thing it also has is on the side they have two HDMI ports to really make it accessible for gamers. You know, you go over, you got an X-Box, you want to plug it in your friend's set. Instead of reaching around under the set you have it right on the side. Now another cool thing they have is Visio's learning remote. Dee Katz [assumed spelling] loves this thing, so this is gonna come with a display as well. [ background music ] Now the price point on the display is going to be sixteen ninety nine, and you'll be able to get it some time around June, 2008. I'm Brian Tong with CNET, here at CES 2008. Another great display from Visio. ^M00:01:10 [ music ]
