Cinespeed LCD Panel: The Cinespeed LCD panel has 6ms or less
response speed necessary for cleaner high-action home theater images. A wide
viewing angle of 178° ensures that you'll have the best seat in the house.
Edge LED Backlight: The Toshiba VX700U TV utilizes LED edge-backlighting
for a clear, crisper image with better contrast and color. You will experience a
superior picture and higher contrast ratio with Edge LED backlight technology,

televisions. Edge LED Backlight technology, also allows televisions to be
slimmer, brighter, and more energy efficient.
CrystalCoat High-Contrast Screen: The Toshiba LED-LCD TV
benefits from Toshiba's CrystalCoat high-contrast screen coating to keep
contrast high in bright rooms. CrystalCoat prevents ambient room light
reflections from washing out the television picture, creating up to 30% better
contrast in bright rooms. Now you can watch TV in any lighting situation ranging
from daylight viewing where bright sunlight can be an issue to watching TV at
night in a dark room. CrystalCoat technology allows you to enjoy a deep high
contrast picture in all lighting conditions. This television offers a dynamic
contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1.
PixelPure 5G 14-Bit Digital Video Processing: At the heart
of the Toshiba LED-LCD television is a PixelPure 5G digital video processor.
Toshiba's 5th generation PixelPure video processing system uses a 14-bit video
DAC and constantly monitors changes in signal quality, content, and movement to
enhance sharpness, contrast, and color reproduction. This advanced
5th-generation digital video processing system runs at a fast 333Mhz and is
capable of producing 16,384 levels of gradation (16 times greater than a
standard 8-bit processor) for a smooth, natural-looking picture without image
ClearFrame 120Hz: This advanced system virtually eliminates
motion blur without decreasing image brightness, or adding flicker. Images are
now crisp and clear regardless of image motion. ClearFrame 120Hz doubles the
video frames from 60 per second to 120 per second to reduce any motion blur that
could be caused by fast action video. ClearFrame utilizes superior Motion Vector
Frame Interpolation (MVFI) technology. Utilizing the power of the PixelPure processor, MVFI creates new frames, inserting them
between the original frames.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has
built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't
need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV
or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
Resolution+: Some video content is in high-definition (HD),
but some is still in standard-definition (SD). REGZA virtually levels the
content playing field with Resolution+. Resolution+ is super resolution
technology that upconverts and enhances 480i, 480p, and even 720p content to
create a sharper, more detailed picture. With REGZA and Resolution+ all of your
standard DVDs, SD TV channels, camcorder videos, and even SD video games will
feel like HD. The Toshiba LED-LCD TV displays all inputs at a resolution of
1080p (1920 x 1080).

digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The HDMI jacks are compliant with the
E-EDID (Enhanced-Extended Display Identification) standards. If you want to connect a DVI-compatible device, you will
need an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. Since DVI does not carry audio signals, a

used primarily with a widescreen source.
- TheaterWide 3: Picture is non-uniformly enlarged; the
picture is stretched wider to fill the width of the screen and stretched

VGA (60 Hz) signal from any of the HDMI inputs. When the auto aspect feature is
turned on and the TV receives a 480i signal, the picture size is automatically
selected; a 4:3 signal is set to Normal, a 16:9 signal is set to Full, a 4:3
letterbox signal is set to TheaterWide 2. If the signal's aspect is not defined,
the Picture Size defaults to the last manually chosen setting.
