Flagship E-series first to be updated 5/16/2017 08:30:00 AM Eastern

Vizio has released a firmware update to enable its SmartCast E-series TVs to stream 4K HDR10 content.

Ultra HD content providers including Netflix, Vudu and FandangoNow offer HDR10 streaming; the update will also allow viewing HDR10 video from such Blu-ray players as the Samsung UHD-K8500 and Philips BDP7501/F7 models, as well as from Sony PlayStation4 and Microsoft Xbox One S game consoles.

"We're happy to give E-series big-screen owners the additional benefits of high dynamic range picture quality, made possible through our award-winning full-array backlight technology with local dimming to give viewers the inky black levels they love," said Matt McRae, Vizio's chief technology officer. "The addition of onscreen menu access to picture settings also provides added value to SmartCast users, enabling convenient control from the new included remote on our 2017 E-series models."
