Your shiny new Vizio TV just became much more useful for playing high dynamic range movies. Vizio is in the midst of rolling out an update to its SmartCast M- and P-Series sets that adds the HDR10 support you need to play HDR Blu-ray movies on current Ultra HD players from the likes of Philips and Samsung. While the sets already supported HDR, they were relying solely on Dolby Vision -- more advanced, but not ubiquitous.

This won't guarantee that Vizio TVs will show HDR video from any and all Ultra HD Blu-ray players. However, the newly acquired firm promises that it'll "further expand support" as HDR-capable players show up. If all goes well, you won't have to worry about your choices of formats or hardware when looking for vibrant videos.
