Vizio Reference Series TV has a 120-inch screen and costs $130,000The bargain TV maker shoots for the Learjet crowd with this cutting-edge screen. And there's also a 65-inch version for $6,000.
[MUSIC] What you're looking at is a 120 inch TV that costs $130,000, and it's made by Vizio. This monstrous set is the larger of two models in the Reference Series, first introduced by Vizio in January of 2014, and finally shipping by the end of this year. The smaller version is a 65 inch model that costs $6,000, which is still more expensive than the best 65 inch TVs from other makers. INcluding LG's [UNKNOWN] TV's, our favorite on the market. The reference series will be the first TV that incorporates DOLBY vision technology, a high dynamic range format that will install special DOLBY vision encoded movies improved contrast, realism, and color. The reference series also using 384 zones of local dimming to achieve that higher contrast. More zones than any other TV we heard about. The 120", $130,000 TV does not include speakers, apparently because Vizio figures that people who can afford it can also afford a dedicated audio system to go with it. Meanwhile the 65" version includes matching detachable speaker bar and a wireless subwoofer for audio that Vizio claims outperforms any other TV. [MUSIC]
