Day Two with VIZIO & AMD at E3

We had a blast at day two of E3 with AMD and got to show off our VIZIO technology. One of the highlights of the AMD booth is AMD’s Eyefinity Technology complete with five VIZIO M-Series TVs

AMD Eyefinity supports multiple independent display outputs simultaneously and delivers innovative graphics display capabilities. It allows you to enable massive desktop workspaces and ultra-immersive visual environments for the ultimate panoramic computing experience. Because after all, what is better than gaming on five M-Series TVs? Sounds like heaven to us.

Ryan Briscoe Races VIZIO Hulu No. 9 

"I absolutely think I can win it this year." -Ryan Briscoe

Ryan Briscoe was the first on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the No. 8 NTT DATA car and the last on the 2.5-mile oval as the second day of practice for the 97th Indianapolis 500 Mile Race drew to a close. It just felt … “normal.”

“When I went out, it was like I never left driving IndyCars,” said Briscoe, the 2012 pole sitter for the 500 Mile Race. “It feels good to be back in the groove of things.”

Briscoe, who competed in 14 races during his first IZOD IndyCar Series season as a teammate to Scott Dixon and Darren Manning in 2005, has seven Indy 500 starts (two top-five finishes, 31 laps led). He’s logged more than a race worth of laps already this week on the 2.5-mile oval in preparation for the May 26 race.

VIZIO is excited to be part of the official unveiling of the 100th Rose Bowl Game logo, the special edition game trophy and celebration highlights for the 100th game tomorrow evening at the Rose Bowl Stadium. 

The present exclusive agreement among the Tournament of Roses Association, the Big Ten Conference and the Pac-12 Conference was born in 1946. The pact is the oldest intercollegiate postseason bowl agreement between two major conferences in the United States, hence the Rose Bowl Game earning the nickname, The Granddaddy of Them All. 

Five days after this postseason milestone, the Tournament of Roses will also host the 16th and final BCS National Championship on Monday, January 6, at the Rose Bowl Stadium. This will mark the second time the Tournament of Roses has hosted two postseason bowl games in one week. The last time a national champion was crowned at the Rose Bowl Stadium was on January 7, 2010.

VIZIO will be keeping everyone up to date so make sure to check back here for more information this week.
