VIZIO, Inc. announced today the availability of its all-new 2017 VIZIO SmartCast E-Series collection in the Canadian market. The next generation E-Series boasts models from the 55″ – 80″ class size and continues to offer brilliant picture quality and features not commonly found in other entry-level displays. Highlighted by 4K Ultra HD High Dynamic Range models for the 55″ class sizes and above, the 2017 lineup offers 75″ and 80″ XXL screen sizes for those looking to upgrade to a big screen. Chromecast built-in spans the entire collection, allowing viewers to easily stream apps they know and love. The VIZIO SmartCast E-Series lineup ranges in price from $849.99 (CAN) for the 55″ class size, to $4,999.99 (CAN) for the 80″ class size. Select models are available now at Costco.ca with remaining models coming soon to Costco.ca and BestBuy.ca.
The VIZIO SmartCast E-Series collection is known for bringing uncompromised value to consumers. With exceptional picture quality technologies like High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support on the 55″ class size and above, the E-Series is one of the most feature-rich entry-level options available to consumers. Unlike edge-lit LED backlight displays, VIZIO utilizes a powerful Full-Array LED backlight and up to 16 Active LED Zones™ that dynamically adjust to on-screen content, delivering dark, inky black levels much deeper than edge-lit LED backlight displays can deliver. High Dynamic Range with HDR10 content support further boosts big screen viewing by offering greater depth and more vivid contrast. Clear Action™ 240 technology and ultra-fast 120Hz Effective Refresh Rate, achieved with backlight scanning, ensures action-packed scenes are consistently smooth, stable and realistic.
“The new 2017 E-Series 75″ and 80″ offerings in the Canadian market provide quality solutions for value-minded consumers looking to upgrade in a big way,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “These XXL displays and their corresponding price tags are simply unparalleled in the market. With the support of High Dynamic Range with HDR10, consumers can expect their new display to deliver high-caliber picture quality technology designed to bring their on-screen content to life.”
Like every display, sound bar and speaker in the VIZIO SmartCast collection, the all-new E-Series displays allow users to simply stream and control their entertainment. With Chromecast built-in, consumers can simply tap the Cast button in popular Chromecast-enabled apps like Netflix and YouTube to stream their favorite shows, movies, and more to the big screen1. By downloading the VIZIO SmartCast app, users can control their display from any room in the home, search for content across numerous apps at once and stream shows directly to their E-Series display. To further streamline the out-of-box experience, an all-new remote is included with all E-Series models to seamlessly allow users to complete the first-time set-up of their display without a phone or tablet. Once set-up is complete, the remote continues to provide access to the on-screen menu, sidebar settings and more.
