Vizio has launched its flagship 2018 P-Series Quantum 65" Class 4K HDR Smart TV in Canada.
The TV features a bezel-less design, and includes Dolby Vision HDR with Active Full Array Max backlighting that boasts 192 zones of local dimming, along with up to 2,000 nits of peak brightness. Quantum Color Spectrum is also included.
UltraBright 2000 allows viewers to experience dramatic highlights, says Vizio, while the full array backlight with 192 local dimming zones dynamically adjusts to precisely mimic on-screen content. Vizio's advanced Quantum Color Spectrum technology sees the P-Series TV use more than one billion colors to match hues and tones with cinematic colour "closer to what the human eye sees," says Vizio.
Clear Action 960 stabilizes imagery and reduces motion blur in things like intense action scenes, combined with a 240Hz effective refresh rate, achieved with backlight scanning, for a smoother, more natural picture.
Popular apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube can be instantly accessed on the TV screen using the included remote, or through the free SmartCast Mobile app. The SmartCast OS also features Google Chromecast built-in, which allows users to access thousands of Chromecast-enabled apps for a range of free, subscription and paid content.
Additional features of the SmartCast OS include content recommendations, with free and trending content suggestions, and a built-in tuner with 2018 smart TV models for accessing free local broadcast TV using an over-the-air antenna.
Users can also control the TV by voice, including turning it on and off, changing channels, or adjusting volume, with support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. Users of Google Assistant can also use voice commands to initiate the streaming of content to the TV.
The new 2018 version of SmartCast OS will be available for all 2018 model Vizio smart TVs, including the new P-Series model, and through the roll out of free cloud-based updates to all 2016 and 2017 VIZIO SmartCast 4K Ultra HD models.
The 2018 P-Series Quantum 65" Class 4K HDR Smart TV (PQ65-F1) is available for an MSRP of $3,500.
