VIZIO Creates "Instant" 5.1 Audio System for Slim LCD HDTVs

- VIZIO is the first TV manufacturer to offer a complete Home Theater solution that includes a flat panel HDTV and a complete 5.1 audio system

Irvine, CA. - January 6, 2008 - VIZIO, America's Fastest Growing Flat Panel HDTV Company, introduces the VIZIO Jive SV5.1 Enhancement Kit that easily turns a SV42LF or SV47LF slim bezel LCD HDTV from their "Black Tie Series" into a complete 5.1 home theater system.


In 2007, VIZIO released the VIZIO Jive JV50P All -in -One home theatre solution which contained a 50" Plasma High -Definition display and full Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound system including center and rear channel speakers with a wireless subwoofer. VIZIO was the first TV manufacturer to offer such a solution to the market and has continued to evolve its High Definition, home -theatre solution into their new Black Tie -SV product line.

The new SV5.1 Enhancement Kit works in concert with integrated front left -and -right speakers by simply adding the center channel, two rear channel (left and right) speakers, and wireless subwoofer. The subwoofer transmits wirelessly through 2.4GHz transmission to the new VIZIO Black Tie Series SV42LF or SV47LF, completing the home theatre experience. An added benefit of the wireless transmission is the elimination of wire -clutter commonly associated with other home theatre systems. The VIZIO Jive generates more than ample sound, even for the discerning listener pumping 560 -watts total peak power (70 -watts RMS) of high quality digital sound to maximize your VIZIO High Definition television experience.

"VIZIO is excited to have the opportunity to offer consumers Full 1080p resolution accompanied with high quality multi -channel audio," says Laynie Newsome, vice president sales for VIZIO, Inc. "By offering the VIZIO Jive SV5.1 Enhancement Kit we are providing our customers with the option to keep it simple and yet still enjoy the benefits of full 5.1 audio from their favorite TV programs, games and DVDs."

This innovative single package solution provides consumers with a complete and compact home theater system that is super easy to install, eliminating most the wire clutter associated with home theater audio systems.
The VIZIO Jive SV5.1 Enhancement Kit will carry an estimated selling price of $299.00 and will be available in July '08. VIZIO will be demonstrating the VIZIO Jive 5.1 Surround sound system in their suite at the Wynn Hotel during CES.

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
