Vizio P series 4K LED LCD goes full-array

TVs
David Katzmaier, Senior Editor at CNET and I'm here in the Vizio booth. Behind me you'll see a 65 and a 55-inch member of Vizio's new P series. The P stands for Performance or Picture Quality or Purity, whatever Vizio wants to call it, but at the end of the day this is Vizio's first 4K resolution television. This set has full array local dimming of the LED backlight which is my favorite feature for an LED TV. It generally release a really good picture quality on a count of really deep black levels and excellent contrast. So, we'll see how this TV performs in person but right off the bat that's a really promising feature. Of course it's got 4K resolution, it also has an HEVC/H.265 decoder and hardware, which allows it to take some streaming services and put them up in 4K and what Vizio claims even better quality than the competitors. Vizio also talks about the processing power of this television. It has a clear action rate of 960 which should help reduce blurring. The second also except 24 and 48-frame signals and reproduce them with excellent cadence. In addition there's 120 frame per second input mode that should lead to smoother frame rates for PC gamers. The styling on the P series is very similar to the M series that we really liked last year from Vizio, very minimalistic with a little Vizio dongle sitting in there on the lower left. All told, the P series looks like one of the most competitive 4K resolution TVs we've seen so far at CES this year and it's also, knowing Vizio, perhaps gonna be one of the least expensive. That's a look at Vizio's P series 4K television. I'm David Katzmaier from CNET.
