Strength Demonstrates Continued Popularity with U.S. Customers, Reinforcing VIZIO'S Commitment to Assessible High-Quality Technology, Leading Tech Support and Customer Satisfaction
Irvine, CA - November 27, 2013 - VIZIO, America's #1 Sound Bar company1 and large size LCD company2, announced today Q3 2013 results, showing continued industry strength with 18% year-over-year shipment unit growth during a period where the North American LCD TV market declined 4%3. Only one other brand showed year-over-year growth during the same three quarters of 2013 according to NPD DisplaySearch report3.
Much of VIZIO's recent success can be attributed to its growth in both large size and smart TVs. The number one choice by many Americans at retailers nationwide, VIZIO recently launched its M-Series all-Smart TV collection which is now available at Best Buy, Costco, Sam's Club, Walmart, VIZIO.com. Featuring an ultra-modern, ultra-thin bezel that virtually vanishes next to the nearly edge-to-edge display, VIZIO's enhanced HDTV line-up, spanning 32" to 80" class sizes, features VIZIO's VIA Plus smart TV platform that demonstrates the brand's leadership in HDTV technology and design-focused enhancements.
"VIZIO's focus has always been to make the best technology accessible to all consumers and over the past nine months, we've looked to build on this by expanding our market share in the large-size and smart TV categories," said Matt McRae, VIZIO Chief Technology Officer. "In addition to VIZIO's #1 rank in both large size LCD and smart TVs, we are now also America's #1 sound bar company4., further validating our innovative approach and demonstrating that VIZIO products continue to resonate with a growing number of U.S. consumers."
In order to continue its market share growth, VIZIO's product quality and customer satisfaction has been a focus since VIZIO shipped its first TVs ten years ago. VIZIO, ranked5 "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with HDTVs Less Than 50 Inches (Tied)," is backed by an award-recognized U.S.-based customer support team that recently took home seven Stevie® Awards for exceeding customer service expectations in the consumer electronics industry. In anticipation of the traditional high volume sales and tech support inquiries during the busy holiday season, VIZIO.com's Support Page was recently updated with tech support videos that are mobile web enabled. Now current and potential customers may also view these videos on smart phones and tablets.
