IRVINE, CA and NEW YORK, NY - - June 22, 2010 - - VIZIO, America’s HDTV and Consumer Electronics Company, announced today the expansion of its VIZIO HD Audio Eco-System through a new range of Wireless HD Audio products, which includes Home Theater Soundbars with wireless subwoofers and wireless home theater headphones. The VHT210 32” Home Theater Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer and the VHT510 40” Home Theater Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer delivers big home theater sound in a sleek design with advanced surround sound technology. Both can be connected wirelessly to the VHP100 Wireless Home Theater Headphones, which deliver premium audio performance with active noise cancellation in a comfortable over-the-ear design.
The expanding array of VIZIO wireless audio devices utilizing Wireless HD Audio technology enables consumers to enjoy audio from almost anywhere in the home. For example, using the Wireless Home Theater Headphones, users can watch movies with full surround sound, without disturbing neighbors or others in the home, or enjoy their tunes from another room with proper set up. With Wireless HD Audio built-in to the SoundBar, the wireless subwoofer can be placed anywhere in the home theater up to 60 feet away, under optimal conditions, from the Soundbar without running wires across the living room.
“More and more consumers are buying Soundbars instead of typical home theater systems to use with their flat panel TVs,” said John Schindler, VP Product Planning. “For the first time, consumers can now enjoy true 5.1 channel audio performance in a flat panel friendly Soundbar with multi-point wireless audio technology.”

With a sleek design perfectly matched for smaller-sized flat panel TVs, this 32” Soundbar also connects wirelessly to its subwoofer, with a range of up to 60 feet, and also works with other VIZIO Wireless HD Audio products.

With easy-to-configure table-standing or wall-mounting options and audio inputs including digital audio optical (S/PIDIF) and analog stereo (RCA), the VHT210 is an easy fit and a great performer in any home theater. The VHT210 will be available in Q3 at an MSRP of $299.99.
