CES 2013: Vizio XVT Ultra HDTV

2:15 /

Vizio introduces three sizes of 4K TVs at CES 2013.

-Hey, I'm Donald Bell here for CNET.com at CES 2013 where we're taking a first look at the Vizio XVT series. This is an ultra HD TV or 4K TV that is going to be offered in the second half of 2013. It's gonna come in 3 sizes. You got a 55-inch, a 65-inch, or the one we're seeing here, which is a 70-inch 4K resolution HD TV. It's a new design for Vizio with a very thing bezel. So, it looks probably like one of the best HD TVs we've seen from Vizio. So, you're paying for looks. You're also paying for that video performance. They are not downgrading or processing the 4K signal before it hits the TV. Apparently, a lot of the 4K TV we're gonna see this year. There's gonna be some intervening processing for that 4K signal actually reaches the TV screen. This one is undiluted and bring it right to your eyeballs. Another cool thing is that it has a 4K resolution input. So, if you have a 4K compatible camcorder, you can put that content directly on the TV and see as all resolution uncompressed. One the reasons why this is probably one of the 4K TVs to really pay attention to is because it's coming from Vizio, a brand that is really known for their value and really be aggressively placed in their TVs. So, what we're looking here might just be the most affordable 4K TV, ultra HD TV that we're gonna find in 2013, and looking at it right now, I can say that the picture quality is beautiful. The content might not be there yet; 4K content is not quite reaching the mainstream yet. What we're looking at is an especially requested video clip from DreamsWorks Picture that slow down to the half frame, so you can really see when you're looking up close here. If you're looking up close, you can even pick out the pixels on the TV, the video resolution is that fine. So there you go, that is the Vizio XVT series ultra HD TV from CES 2013. I'm Donald Bell.
