The 2014 E-Series collection was heralded by Sound & Vision as a Top Pick 2 and by CNET as one of the Highest Rated TVs of 2014 3 , and with that praise, VIZIO aimed to push the technology and picture quality even further across this year’s line-up. The 2015 VIZIO E-Series collection 4 boasts Full-Array LED backlighting technology, which delivers brilliant picture quality and advanced control of the LEDs behind the entire screen for superior light uniformity and picture performance as compared to edge-lit TVs. Up to 16 Active LED Zones™ dynamically adjust the LED backlighting to match the light and dark portions of on-screen content, culminating in better light uniformity complete with deeper black levels and brighter colors 5 for a more vibrant, beautiful picture.

By combining powerful image processing and 120 Hz effective refresh rates, the 2015 E-Series line-up delivers next-level clarity, reducing motion blur and minimizing retina burn 5 .
“This year’s E-Series delivers great picture quality and performance with more Smart TV apps, all at an incredible value to the consumer,” said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. “Picture performance is enhanced by Full-Array LED backlighting and Active LED Zones, which pull out deeper blacks and brighter colors, while powerful image processing and 120Hz effective refresh rate improves details in fast action scenes.
