Toshiba has launched its new flagship Toshiba 9 Series Ultra HD 4K televisions as part of its new 2013 home entertainment range, which includes Blu-ray players, Smart TVs and the Toshiba Cloud TV platform.
The Japanese electronics manufacturer’s new flagship television series offers stunningly detailed resolutions, four times better than Full HD and it comes with the all new Toshiba Cloud TV entertainment platform.
Also released as part of the Toshiba 2013 Home Entertainment range is the new Toshiba 7 Series Smart TVs with 3D and Full HD resolutions, the Toshiba 6 Series and Toshiba 4 Series LED Smart TVs, and the 2013 Blu-Ray player collection that features inbuilt Wi-Fi connectivity and Smart TV functionality.
Toshiba 9 Series Features
Shipping in 84-inch, 65-inch and 58-inch screen sizes, the Toshiba 9 Series will be the first Ultra HD televisions to launch worldwide. With four times the resolution of Full HD displays, the Toshiba 9 series pack 3,840 x 2,160p for stunning image quality powered by the Toshiba CEVO 4K multi-processor.
According to Toshiba, the televisions upscale Full HD images with delicacy to 4K delivering new levels of image quality from existing content.
The Toshiba 9 Series features Toshiba’s most advanced picture processing technology, 800 Active Motion & Resolution (AMR), meaning the series can offer smooth imaging, even when viewing fast-paced movies or sports content, with minimised ghosting.
The two larger screen sizes use passive 3D images for sharpness and clarity, with all three models capable of displaying 3D content in Full HD resolutions. The Toshiba 9 Series is able to convert 2D images to 3D in real-time, whilst Depth Control allows users to adjust the 3D effect to their own viewing preferences.
A fully-functioning Smart TV range too, the Toshiba 9 Series is one of the first ranges to offer Toshiba’s Cloud TV connected entertainment platform. Cloud TV combines the user’s access to broadcast and online entertainment content, attempting to offer a more personalised Smart TV experience. The platform will suggest content to view based on the users’ viewing history, and will enable them to watch television while checking their Facebook or Twitter feeds.
Toshiba has brought on board a host of new content providers to enhance the Cloud TV experience, including Netflix and Vimeo, which will now join on-demand services like BBC iPlayer and YouTube.
