Vizio makes some of the best-reviewed TVs at CNET, but typically it doesn't reveal details on news ones until April or so. At CES 2019, it gave us the full reveal, and it's a doozy.Vizio showed off four all-new lineups of 4K HDR TVs with Dolby Vision and local dimming, a combination of features that earned it solid marks in 2018. For 2019 the company has migrated quantum dot color down to more affordable levels, bumped up the brightness and dimming zones on step-up sets, and used the word "Quantum" with shocking profligacy.It also said its Smart TV system would be the first on the market to support all three voice assistants -- Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and, coming this spring, Apple's Siri. Now playing: Watch this: Vizio debuts bigger, brighter Quantum TVs at CES 2019 2:12 Hello, AirPlay and HomekitBefore I get into all the TV hardware, let me tell you about Vizio and Apple's demo of the AirPlay 2 and Homekit functionality coming soon to Vizio TVs -- and others … [Read more...] about Vizio serves up TVs with quantum dots and Apple AirPlay at CES 2019

As fast as the technology industry moves, some things still take forever.Apps on TVs are a good example. This has been an arena filled with empty promises, false starts, and lame efforts. Apps have technically been on TVs for years, but they've been dominated by disappointing experiences from traditional channels that you'll find on Samsung and Vizio TVs or the unorganized hornet's nest of apps on Roku--which is still a great little box. I've been writing for years that the app model that has been so successful on smartphones would eventually come to TV and bring a major upgrade to the concept of the TV channel. This new model is destined to combine the things we love about the evolution of TV--on-demand viewing, binge watching seasons, instant access without fiddling with tapes or discs, and pay-per-view for premium content--with a slew of new features that will quickly make today's TV feel like the bygone era of VHS tapes and bunny ear antennas. It's these new possibilities … [Read more...] about How TV apps are about to remake the small screen and unleash a new land grab
Welcome to CNET's predictions for the TV hardware category at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Dave Katzmaier here. I want to do something different for the 2012 CES preview. After nearly 10 years of handling TV reviews and coverage at CNET essentially by myself, I'm now joined by a colleague whose main beat is also TVs: Ty Pendlebury. He's already written afewreviewsand blog posts, done his share of videos and podcasts, and he also has plenty of experience reviewing TVs for CNET Australia and has attended CES in that capacity. So we decided it would be cool for Ty and I to write separate CES TV previews and lump them into this post. Just to keep it interesting, neither of us consulted with the other on what we're writing here, so look upon the repetition not as tedious, but as further confirmation of the inevitable near future. More passive 3D, cheaper active glasses with a universal standard, better 3D PQ. Even with passive 3D's picture quality issues, its cheap glasses … [Read more...] about Better 3D, voice control, more apps: How CES 2012 will advance the TV
