Tech Industry: Vizio XVT Pro 72" 3D LCD

1:31 /

At CES 2010, Brian Tong takes a look at the Vizio XVT Pro 72" 3D LCD TV.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Brian Tong here at CES 2010 here with Vizio, and behind me is the XVT Pro Series. I may not be the biggest guy, but this thing makes me look tiny. It's a 72-inch television set. It's an HD display. It's a backlit LED LCD TV, refresh rate is at 480 hertz. The thing about this is that they're packing a lot of value and different technologies into this entire package. So first thing here, we have the 3D wireless HDMI receiver. This allows you to plug in your source, put this somewhere further away, around 60 feet away from the television set, and it displays your content perfectly. And this is 3D content. Also, another thing is we have the Bluetooth remote. This means you don't have to directly, you know, point it at the television set. You can be somewhere around. And it also comes out with a flip out QWERTY keyboard. Now, this TV set is also a WiFi enabled device, and that gives you access to all of Vizio's Internet apps. We're talking about Netflix 2.0, Voodoo, other apps like Twitter and Facebook, so you have that suite of apps built into the TV as well. And one thing that you might want to know is the 3-D glasses, they're active shutter glasses. They connect through Bluetooth. They won't come with the TV set, so you'll just have to get those later. But overall this is a great package from Visio. It's gonna be priced at $3499.00, available sometime in August. I just don't see how anyone else can compete with all the value in here, but this is a First Look at the Vizio XVT Pro Series. ^M00:01:25 [ Music ]
