VIZIO, Inc. has released a new collection of VIZIO SmartCast sound bars featuring fully integrated Google Cast, which allows users to stream millions of songs from a Google Cast-enabled audio app directly to the sound bar over Wi-Fi. Part of VIZIO’s new smart entertainment ecosystem, each audio product can be controlled by the VIZIO SmartCast app, which transforms any mobile device into a powerful touchscreen remote. From the app users can control their sound bar from anywhere in the home. You can search, browse, and discover content across multiple apps as well as play, pause, change volume or access all the settings for their VIZIO SmartCast device. The new products are available now at VIZIO.com, starting at $219.99 for the 38” 2.1 Sound Bar System and $499.99 for the 45” 5.1 Slim Sound Bar System.
Multi-room streaming over Wi-Fi allows users to even cast the same song to multiple VIZIO SmartCast sound bars and speakers at the same time, or send a different song to each speaker for a beautifully simple whole home audio experience. Streaming over Wi-Fi also eliminates interruptions from phone calls, texts, and other notifications that occur with Bluetooth streaming. VIZIO’s audio products also ship with a standard LCD display remote, providing an alternative way to control basic functions.
“The new VIZIO SmartCast sound bar line-up was designed not only to accompany big screens to create an immersive home theater experience, but also serve as a great home audio source,” says Matt McRae, chief technology officer at VIZIO. “The VIZIO SmartCast app allows consumers to seamlessly Cast and control their music right from their mobile device across a variety of configurations. Coupled with the collection’s sleek industrial design, the VIZIO SmartCast audio solutions are a must-have addition to any home.”
The SmartCast 45” 5.1 Slim Sound Bar System is ideal for home theater enthusiasts seeking elegant style, the highest quality audio and a true 5.1 surround sound. Designed to complement 47” class size displays and above, VIZIO’s flagship offering was engineered with custom drivers, a center channel for enhanced dialogue clarity, and a sleek profile that doesn’t sacrifice audio quality. Measuring 2” high and 2” deep, the 45” slim sound bar features rear satellite speakers and pumps up to 104dB Sound Pressure Level (SPL) 1 and 30 Hz of bass. The flagship model, along with the 40” 3.1, 40” 5.1 and 45” 3.1 slim sound bar configurations, features a sleek and compact 3” tall subwoofer, perfect for easy, out-of-the-way storage beneath or next to a sofa.
Bluetooth is also integrated into all VIZIO audio products, offering streaming as an alternative option.
