Vizio's 4K Ultra HD Smart TVs Feature 802.11ac Connectivity, Start at $999
These aren't gimped TV sets, either. Vizio's P-Series sport LED backlighting with advanced local dimming technology and 64 active LED zones, HEVC H.265 codec for Ultra HD streaming, Vizio's V6 six-core processor that combines a quad-core GPU and dual-core CPU, built-in 802.11ac dual-band MIMO Wi-Fi, and smart functions, to name a few of the features. Why a six-core SoC? Vizio says it developed the chip to deliver advanced graphics processing and an even faster smart TV user experience.
"In addition, the VM50 Ultra HD motion and picture-processing engine enhances every Ultra HD image with incredible detail. At the pixel level, the Pure Pixel Processing Engine (P3E) further enhances sharp detail and gamma control, while reducing noise and artifacts caused by scaling, compression and video devices," Vizio says.
Vizio's P-Series TVs are priced as follows:
- P502ui-B1: $999.99
- P552ui-B2: $1,399.99
- P602ui-B3: $1,799.99
- P652ui-B2: $2,199.99
- P702ui-B3: $2,599.99
Even if you're not interested in a 4K set, you have to like the price points, which will help drive down the cost of Full HD 1080p sets. Unfortunately, Vizio didn't say when these televisions will be available at retail.
