In an announcement that makes my heart glad, VISIO let it be known that they are releasing a line of what they are calling their “P” series of TV’s which are “consumer” 4K TV’s. They also announced that they are completely dropping 3D. That’s the part truly makes me happy. If you want to watch something in 3D, go the theatre and watch it. I have felt for a long time that 3D for the home was a failing proposition, and though VISIO isn’t the heaviest of hitters in the TV manufacturing game, I hope that this is an indicator of the direction that things are going to go in industry wide.
The new “P” series will be available in sizes ranging from 50 to 70 inches. VIZIO has not released pricing, except to say that they will be priced “aggressively”. We’ll share more details as they become available.
