Ahead of the opening of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2020), Vizio announced its own smart TV lineup. The biggest “face” is the 85-inch P-Series Quantum X model (plus 75/65-inch version), and the company’s launch of the OLED TV line (65/55-inch version). Vizio says it supports many TVs with a new 64-bit 1GHz ARM processor for 4K stretching and precise color optimization.

The high-end model also features an “IQ Ultra” processor that includes image optimization based on artificial intelligence/machine learning. In addition, the company offers a “ProGaming Engine” that supports AMD FreeSync’s variable refresh rate (120Hz to 4K).
The Vizio 2020 all-system TV features low input latency ( slt; 15 ms) and is not limited to a specific HDMI 2.1 signal input port, but supports almost all HDR formats including Dolby Vision, HDR10, HLG, and HDR10.
It is worth mentioning that Vizio will launch a new voice remote control this year, supplemented by its own voice command system, can easily handle the basic needs of TV remote control, content search, launch applications and so on. In the meantime, Vizio will continue to support Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Apple HomeKit/AirPlay 2.
For the OLED TV product line, Vizio will use LG’s home panels. Vizio clearly needs to deliver better image processing performance in order to stand out from the crowd of competitors.
Vizio highlights the common benefits of OLED, such as more perfect pure black, bright colors and contrast, which are unmatched by LCD models. In addition, OLED TV supports variable refresh rates (VRRs) for a smoother 4K-120Hz FreeSync experience.
The P-Series QUANTUM X includes 85/75/65-inch models with maximum support for 792 area dimming and a peak brightness of 3000 nits (full screen 800 nits).
The 75/65-inch version has slightly lower parameters than the largest 85-inch models, such as reduced dimming areas to 240 and peak brightness of only 1200 nits (full screen 600 nits).
Finally, the M8 and M7 series, which is positioned in the entry market and supports up to 90/30 dimming zones, offer 65/55-inch models and 65/55/50-inch models.
In terms of brightness, the M8 series supports up to 800 nits (full screen 500 nits) and the M7 series supports up to 800 nits (full screen 350 nits). Even so, m-Series TVs support excellent quantum dot color, HDMI 2.1, and all HDR modes.
