VIZIO Extends Universal Line of Accessories with Energy Saving Surge Protector

Las Vegas (CES 2009), NV and Irvine, CA -- January 7, 2009 -- VIZIO, America’s HDTV and Consumer Electronics Company, introduced several new products for their branded line of accessories including the company's first Surge Protector.

"VIZIO is one of the most trusted brands in North America and it's important for us to support our popular line of LCD and Plasma TVs with the accessories consumers need," says Laynie Newsome, VIZIO Co-Founder and VP Sales and Marketing Communications. "These high quality accessories compliment and complete the total home theater experience while maintaining our mission to give consumers the best entertainment experience at a value."

The VIZIO VES800 Surge Protector provides 8 EMI/RFI filtered outlets of energy saving surge protection to protect expensive audio and video devices from power anomalies that can damage them.

Unlike other surge protectors that power all connected devices continuously, the VES800 provides five switchable outlets, with only three outlets that stay on at all times. The standby power switch is on the front panel with an override power switch on the rear panel, which turns off all outlets.

Additional protection for other devices is provided with a combination RJ45/RJ11 jack (1 in, 1 out) for telephone, DSL modems, and routers plus two pairs of gold plated F connectors for cable and satellite signals. For easy installation in entertainment centers with limited depth, the VES800 features a 60-degree rotating power cord with a strain relief to prevent cord damage.
