Just last month, Vu added four new TVs to its Premium Android 4K TV range. Now, the brand has further expanded its portfolio with three new TVs as part of its UltraSmart lineup, and four new TVs as part of its Pixelight 4K range. These seven new TV’s are touted to be the first to officially run Amazon Prime Video. The new TVs also offer a feature called VOD Upscaler which is claimed to enhance video and audio playback from Video on Demand (VOD) services such as Netflix, YouTube Amazon Prime, and others. All these TV’s should be available for purchase by April 5 via Flipkart and offline retail outlets.

Vu UltraSmart, Vu Pixelight 4K TVs Features, Specifications
Even on the entry-level UltraSmart TVs, you will find Vu’s VOD Upscaler tech. This tech is capable of rendering content from OTT platforms such as Netflix, YouTube, Hotstar, and more without gateway compression. Vu says that its proprietary upscaling technology uses both advance machine learning and a state-of-the-art DSP (digital signal processor) to ensure best possible audio/video playback from VOD services.
Both TV ranges come with licensed video streaming apps including Netflix, Prime Video and YouTube. All these apps can be directly accessed with dedicated hotkeys on the provided remote control. The televisions run Linux-based Vu Smart OS. Both TV’s also support AnyView Cast that can be used to mirror content from Android smartphones.
The Pixelight TVs in particular, make use of 4K panels that support HDR10 playback. These TV’s also get Dolby Audio along with enhancements from DTS technologies. While UltraSmart TVs also get Dolby Audio, they make use of DBX-TV sound instead. An added feature on the Pixelight is the ability to control the TV with your smartphone with the use of the Remote Now app.
