"The new VIZIO.com simplifies the user experience while celebrating entertainment, innovation and design," said Matt McRae, Chief Technology Officer, VIZIO. "All design decisions were driven by ease-of-use, putting the consumer experience first to give them a better way to learn about VIZIO's beautifully simple technologies and product features through smart shopping tools and search functionalities."

With a fully responsive layout that optimizes content across every screen size from desktop to mobile, consumers now have the ability to research products and shop where it is most comfortable and convenient.  In-depth product feature pages, including the new store finder and comparison engine shopping tools, allow consumers to visit VIZIO product pages at retail partner websites, or in-store from the store locator. 

The new VIZIO.com also features details on a newly developed augmented reality app called the VIZIO Showroom.  The app was created to make the shopping experience simpler than ever.  Consumers can download the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store for free. From there, the process is simple, just print out the paper marker and place it on the wall or tabletop surface, simulating where the TV would be placed.  Then, using a mobile device's camera the VIZIO Showroom App will show the room on your mobile device complete with the VIZIO product(s) being considered, allowing consumers to change size and model through the app to determine what looks and fits in the space best.  The augmented reality app is simply another way VIZIO is streamlining and simplifying the consumer experience.

To celebrate the launch, VIZIO is offering consumers free shipping3 on all eligible products during the week of launch. For more information and to check out the all-new website, visit www.VIZIO.com.  To learn more about the VIZIO Showroom App, be sure to check out http://showroom.vizio.com/.
