People have become very pretentious about their displays lately and Vizio has a treat for them and for others who want a display particularly made for watching movies. When it comes to movies, many people end up choosing a projector, however, if your space is limited and you want a great looking TV, the Vizio XVT3D580CM 21:9 Cinemawide might be a perfect addition to your home theater setup.
This model is dedicated to movie lovers who can now enjoy motion pictures in a 21:9 aspect ratio, without those nasty black lines at the bottom and top of the screen. It’s become a trend to launch at least one model a year dedicated to movies exclusively, and the first one to do that was Philips. A lot of people have really enjoyed the Philips 3D Cinema 21:9 Platinum in the past, so Vizio was most likely inspired by its success.
The Vizio XVT3D580CM is now the fist Cinemawide display on the American market and it comes in a 58-inch screen size and with an impressive 2560x1080 resolution rather than go with the standard 1920x1080 Full HD resolution. The resolution is the main feature and it will attract some buyers and those who are looking for something a bit different and you will still be able to find everything else a 2012 HDTV comes with.
A Cinema display like this one couldn’t lack 3D, while the LED Edge lighting will take care of the picture quality in order to deliver crisp and flicker free images. There’s a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, ambient light sensor, Smart TV and Internet Apps, which will enable you to go online as you would on your PC, thanks to the built-in WiFi. Connectivity features also include Bluetooth, as for watching normal TV on the Vizio XVT3D580M, the company has decided to include the possibility of upscaling your Full HD resolution content to a 21:9 aspect ratio.
Your movie experience will dramatically change on the new Vizio XVT3D580CM display and the good news is that the company is planning to release another two models, including a giant, 71-inch display. That would truly be a treat for home theater enthusiasts, but until then you can enjoy the XVT3D580CM right now.
The Vizio XVT3D580M Cinemawide 21:9 3D LED TV is now shipping for $2,500.
