But the Reference Series goes beyond pixel count. Vizio has equipped the upcoming televisions with High Dynamic Range capabilities, an 800 nit bright backlight, and 384 Active LED Zones with active pixel tuning. The television also automatically adjusts its FPS for films, so that they can be viewed in their native frame rates, while High Velocity Mode, for gamers, adjusts the TV to 120 fps.
Both UltraHD television series are powered by a V6 quad-core GPU and dual-core CPU, and will have access to Vizio's internet apps. As far as the future of 4K content, Vizio told The Verge that they "believe in streaming." Vizio's new Reference and P-Series TVs utilize the HVEC codec for streaming and can also handle 4K playback at 60fps.
With 4K hardware and content steadily becoming more popular, Vizio has ditched 3D altogether. Its new lineup, which also includes its M- and E-Series HDTVs, is completely free of 3D—a trend that was noticeable at last year's CES, and something we wouldn't be surprised to see more of in the near future.
