Vizio announces 21:9 Cinemawide 3D HDTVs

Along with several other new products including an android-based tablet and fresh lineup of 3D TVs, Vizio has announced two new HDTVs capable of displaying the CinemaScope 2.35:1 aspect ratio in full screen (meaning, no black bars). The Cinemawide HDTV series will let you watch movies in their original format at 1080p resolution, in either 50″ or 58″ sizes. The sets also come enabled with Vizio Internet Apps, SRS Studio Sound HD, and four pairs of 3D glasses. Vizio says the new displays will ship in October, 2011. No MSRP has been revealed.

From Vizio:

“Most HDTVs have an aspect ratio of 16:9 (sometimes called 1.78:1), with a native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 (Full HD). This aspect ratio was selected as the ATSC HDTV standard as a compromise between television’s original aspect ratio (4:3 or 1.33:1) and the wider 1.85:1 aspect ratio selected for the many Hollywood movies. Big-budget Hollywood blockbusters, though, are usually filmed in the much wider 2.35:1 or 2.39:1 aspect ratios. VIZIO’s new Cinemawide HDTVs accommodate these “CinemaScope” or “anamorphic” aspect ratios well with a 2.37:1 (21:9) aspect ratio. So you’ll be able to watch classics and today’s best movies in the film’s original aspect ratio and without black bars.”
