The VIZIO M-Series 50-inch Quantum X 4K HDR Smart Gaming TV (M50QXM-K01) was named the CES 2022 Innovation Awards winner in the Gaming category. Designed for the ultimate gaming experience, VIZIO’s new 4K HDR Gaming Smart TV display offers 48-120Hz to 4K VRR support, and also offers 48-240Hz to 1080p VRR support. This ultra-fast 240 fps frame rate doubles the highest frame rate currently available on other consumer TVs and virtually eliminates ghosting with razor-sharp images with superbly smooth, natural movement during fast-paced action games. Gaming is further enhanced with a high contrast picture thanks to full dimming local backlighting, spectacular color gamut provided by Quantum Dot technology and premium gaming features such as Auto Low Latency, Dolby Vision Auto Gaming and the HGiG HDR game. For a fully immersive audio experience, the TV is equipped with DTS: X, Dolby Digital +, AC-4 decoding and Dolby Atmos eARC pass-through, with Virtual: X surround sound and Bluetooth wireless headphone support. The sleek and refined industrial design of the TV features a nearly frameless 3-sided metal design that gives a very minimalist and clean look allowing for distraction-free gaming. The TV stand provides additional design flexibility with its two adjustable positions that allow users to lower the height of the TV for better viewing comfort or raise the TV to provide additional space for a sound bar. In addition to being a premium gaming TV supporting 1080p at 240Hz, the VIZIO HDR Gaming Smart TV is also a great 4K / 120Hz entertainment platform featuring VIZIO’s SmartCast ™ operating system. .
The VIZIO M-Series Elevate 5.1.2 (M512E-K6) soundbar was also named the CES 2022 Innovation Awards winner in the Home Audio / Video Components and Accessories category. A revolution in design, the Elevate M-Series soundbar delivers exciting sound in a sleek system that’s easy to set up and control. Behind a visually harmonious charcoal fabric exterior and extruded aluminum end caps hides a pair of height-adaptive speakers, a patented technology first introduced in the company’s revolutionary P-Series Elevate soundbar. When immersive content is detected, the equalizer is automatically adjusted and the front exterior speakers pivot upward, reflecting sound off the listener’s ceiling to present a cinematic 5.1.2 surround sound experience. When playing stereo music and channel-based content in Direct mode, these speakers automatically pivot down to a forward-firing position, presenting a wider soundstage with crisp vocals and clear. Movie, Music or Game listening modes use DTS Virtual: X to upmix stereo and 5.1 sources to immerse you deeper into the world of your content. With 11 speakers in total, the M-Series Elevate features dedicated tweeters and woofers for amazing clarity and space, two discrete surround speakers for 360-degree sound, and a newly designed wireless subwoofer that delivers Impressive bass up to 45Hz without sacrificing aesthetics. HDMI eARC, 4K Dolby Vision passthrough, Bluetooth and a dedicated voice assistant input ensure optimal performance from your connected devices. Intentionally designed to be more subtle so as not to distract from the overall living room environment, immersive sound has never looked so good.
