Vizio announced today three new HDTV sets. Two of the new sets are LCD full 1080p TVs with 120Hz refresh rates and one is a new 50-inch plasma set. The pair of LCD sets includes the SV470XVT (47-inch) and the SV420XVT (42-inch). These sets both have 120Hz refresh rates and Smooth motion video. Both sets have two HDMI 1.3 ports on the side as well as two of them in the rear and TruSurround XT virtual surround sound.

An optional upgrade kit can add full wireless 5.1 surround sound with a wireless sub woofer and wireless rear speakers. The 50-inch plasma model is the VP505XVT. The set has full 1080p resolution and a pair of HDMI 1.3 ports on the rear of the set. Vizio also includes a HDMI cable with the set. The contrast ratio for the plasma is 30,000:1 and it features a Silicon Optix REON HQV video processor and 1200 nits of brightness.

“Full 1080p resolution has certainly come of age, especially as lower cost, next generation HD disc players and games make their way into the warehouse and department store channels,” says Laynie Newsome, vice president sales at VIZIO, Inc. “The XVT series is just one example of the best-of-breed products VIZIO offers as we continue to create the widest selection of HDTVs with state-of-the art performance and features.”
