Cinespeed 10-Bit LCD Panel: Toshiba's 10-bit LCD panel
provides 64 times more colors than a standard 8-bit panel, offering smoother
transitions between color changes and during subtle shade transitions. Toshiba's
REGZA Premium LCD Hi-Speed Cinespeed panels offer a refresh rate of 60 Hz and
fast response times of 8ms or faster for an ultra sharp picture, especially when
displaying fast-moving action scenes, and demanding video games. A wide
176-degree viewing angle ensures that you can enjoy this TV from any seat in
PixelPure 5G 14-Bit Digital Video Processing: 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 third-generation digital video processing system runs at a fast
333Mhz and is capable of producing 4,096 levels of gradation (16 times greater
than a standard 8-bit processor) for a smooth, natural-looking picture without
ClearScan 240: ClearScan 240 combines 120 frames per second with a
new advanced Backlight Scanning System to create a 240 Hz effect for a new level
of picture clarity with motion video.
SRT (Super Resolution Technology): SRT (Super Resolution
Technology) upconverts and enhances 480i/p and 720p input signals for a more
detailed picture, allowing all of your DVDs and TV channels to be displayed in
near High Definition picture quality. The Toshiba LCD TV displays
all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The HDMI inputs will accept
1080p (24Hz/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA and SXGA signals while the component video inputs
will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. The SRT features offers five settings -
Auto, Mode 1, Mode 2, Mode 3, or Off.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has
built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't
separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV
or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
Inputs: Three of the four HDMI inputs are found on the rear-panel of the
television, while one HDMI input is located on the right-side panel of the TV.
The four HDMI inputs consists of a single type-A connector HDMI jack. The HDMI jacks can
accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP) from other devices (such as
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
stereo audio 3.5mm input is provided for the HDMI 1 input. In addition to the
HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable, you will also need a stereo audio 3.5mm cable. The HDMI 1
input can also be used to connect the TV to your PC along with the shared PC
stereo audio minijack input.
Note: The HDMI jack
will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
HDMI Version 1.3 Capabilities: The Toshiba LCD television offers the
following HDMI version 1.3 capabilities through its HDMI inputs.
- HDMI INSTAPORT: This
technology reduces lag of switching time when switching HDMI sources.
- Lip-Sync Latency: This feature activates and auto
audio/video display timing adjustment function that allows HDMI source
devices to accurately perform synchronization automatically.
- Deep Color: This HDMI feature allows the HDMI source to
increase the available color bits within the boundaries defined by the RGB
or YCbCr color space system.
- 24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are
filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video
taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist
approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in
24p. Toshiba wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability
via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural
- REGZA-LINK: You can control the basic functions of
connected audio/video devices using the TV's remote control if you connect a
REGZA-LINK compatible audio receiver or playback device. Available basic
functions include - Play, Stop, Pause, Skip, Fast Forward, Rewind and Menu
navigation (These function depend on the devices connected). REGZA-LINK also
allows for the ability of automatic input switching and power on/off for
Component Video Inputs: The two ColorStream
HD Component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p,
480p, and 480i signals.
DynaLight Dynamic Back-Light Control: Toshiba's DynaLight Back-Light Control utilizes advanced image and histogram
processing to monitor the brightness of each video frame, and adjust the
backlight intensity accordingly. This precision creates seamless transitions
with deep blacks for increased detail and depth analysis. This precise signal
analysis allows for 256 levels of backlight control and can create a Dynamic
Contrast that is 7 to 10 times that of the original panel contrast.
CrystalCoat Contrast Enhancer: CrystalCoat
stops ambient room light reflections from washing out the picture, creating
up to 30% better contrast in bright rooms and allowing you to enjoy the deep
high contrast REGZA picture in all room lighting conditions.
Designed to optimize poor NTSC signals from antenna or cable, this noise
reduction system eliminates video noise ("snow") for a clean crisp image. This
system detects the quality of the incoming video signal, and automatically
applies the needed amount of video optimization.
Picture Size: When viewing a
source, you can choose one of the following picture sizes:
- Natural: image is
displayed close to its originally formatted proportion
- Theater Wide 1: the picture is
non-uniformly enlarged; the center of the picture remains close to its true
proportion, but the left and right edges are stretched wider to fill the
screen, used primarily with a 4:3 source
- Theater Wide 2: entire
picture is uniformly enlarged, used primarily with a widescreen source
- Theater Wide 3: picture is
non-uniformly enlarged; the picture is stretched wider to fill the width of
the screen and stretched slightly taller
- Full: mainly
designed for receiving a squeezed 4:3 signal (a 16:9 [480i, 480p] programs squeezed into
a 4:3 transmission), the picture is stretched wider to
fill the screen, but not taller, none of the picture is
- 4:3 HD: provides a 4:3
aspect ratio of a 720p, 1080i or 1080p signal; sidebars fill the empty
vertical spaces while not distorting the picture from its original size
- 4:3 Stretch: the size switching system changes 4:3 programs into
full screen pictures
- Native: when receiving a
720p, 1080i or 1080p signal program,
Native Mode restores the size of the picture by the 3-5% that is generally
lost during the normal over-scanning that occurs on traditional sets. It
also avoids unnecessary scaling of HD signals that can reduce overall image
resolution and picture quality.
- Dot-by-Dot: non-scaling display for VGA, SVGA, XGA, WXGA and SXGA
TheaterWide Scrolling: You can set separate scroll settings for the Theater Wide 2 and
TheaterWide 3 modes for each input. You can adjust the scroll of the picture up
and down as needed form -5 to +10.
Auto Aspect Ratio: The Auto Aspect Ratio
feature will automatically select the picture size when one of the following
inputs sources is received - a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080 signal from the ANT/Cable
input; a 480i signal from the Video 1 or 2 inputs; a 480i, 480p, 720p, or 1080i
signal for the
Component Video 1 or 2 inputs; and a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or VGA
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 Natural, a 16:9 signal is set to Full, a 4:3 letterbox signal
is set to Theater Wide 2. If the signal's aspect is not defined, the Picture
Size defaults to the last manually chosen setting.
Picture Modes: You can select
one of the following picture modes for each input:
- AutoView: AutoView
uses an external light sensor to automatically adjust various picture
quality settings based on the amount of ambient room lighting and the type
of video content you are watching for an improved viewing experience.
AutoView monitors and adjusts brightness, sharpness, contrast, color, and
SRT settings to improve picture quality.
- Sports: Bright and dynamic
- Movie: Lower contrast for
a darkened room.
