Vizio is a brand of electronics that is owned by the Chinese company LeEco. Vizio was founded in 2002, and it’s based in Irvine, California. The company designs and sells consumer electronics, including televisions, sound bars, and laptop computers.

A remote is an essential part of any TV set. It makes it possible to turn on and off the device, change channels, adjust volume, and perform other functions without having to use a keyboard or mouse.
