California-based TV maker, VIZIO, has announced its 2020 SmartCast TV lineup at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The company says it is debuting more Quantum Color models while also unveiling its first OLED TV in 2020, all using its SmartCast 4.0 software and also its new Voice Remote.
“Our mission has always been to make cutting-edge picture quality and a best-in-class smart TV user experience attainable for everyone,” said Bill Baxter, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO, in a press release. “We’re excited with the performance improvements that our new IQ video processors and ProGaming Engine bring to our 2020 lineup, especially when combined with VIZIO TVs that offer the highest performance Quantum Color and peak brightness in the industry. Plus, utilizing the new processing power to optimize the strengths of OLED picture quality proves that VIZIO’s leadership in the TV industry has never been stronger.”
VIZIO’s 2020 TV lineup will be powered by a new 64-bit image processor, 3D color engine and 1GHz CPU. A new VIZIO ProGaming Engine will support Variable Refresh Rates (VRR), AMD FreeSync, and resolutions up to 4K at 120Hz, bringing high gaming performance for Xbox One X and PlayStation 4.
