Get Personal with your Toshiba TV

26 August 2011

Sydney, Australia – 26 August 2011. Defined by connectivity, style and innovative viewing quality, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited today introduced its latest range of innovative LED and LCD TVs.

“With 13 new products in the line-up, each delivers an outstanding image quality and a range of convenient features for the home, all at great value,” Rob Wilkinson, General Manager Information Systems Division, Toshiba Australia, said.

The new WL800A TV range has some stand-out features including Personal TV Auto Face Recognition. With a camera embedded within the TV, the technology is able to identify and recognise viewers in front of the screen and remember their individual viewing preferences.

“Personal TV Auto Face Recognition can store up to four different viewers’ settings and automatically deliver their personal pre-sets, including picture settings, volume preference and channel lists to each viewer,” Mr Wilkinson said.

“Toshiba’s WL800A range also offers another outstanding technology, MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link). This technology allows viewers to share HD content on their TVs via direct cable connection from mobile devices, allowing them to choose their entertainment options.”

Stylish designs, stunning High Definition (HD) or Full High Definition picture quality and connectivity options are available along with a wide range of screen sizes to ensure there is a Toshiba LCD TV that’s perfect for any room, use and budget.

“As a proud sponsor of the Rugby World Cup, 2011 in New Zealand, Toshiba is introducing its new line up into stores just in time for kick-off so consumers can take home the latest AV technology to enjoy all the action from the game in true-to-life experience”.

“The new feature-rich TV models launched today are designed for people looking for the highest quality viewing experience in the home. Clever technology such as the intelligent 3D system and active shutter 3D glasses combine to create the ultimate in Full HD, 3D viewing. Plus Toshiba’s ClearScan 400Hz and 200Hz technology also makes movement appear completely smooth and realistic, and helps to optimise the 3D effect.” Mr Wilkinson continued.

Crafted by international award-winning designer Jacob Jenson, Toshiba’s stylish new series of Full HD LED TVs including the Regza WL800A with Active 3D and the Regza VL800A with Passive 3D, deliver top-of-the-line features for the best in entertainment.

The viewing experience offered by its latest models is further intensified by Toshiba’s new CEVO-ENGINE, a powerful multiprocessor that uses Auto Collaboration to deliver Film studio picture quality, and converts standard 2D images to 3D in real time (in the WL800A series), adding an extra dimension to what you’re watching.

IPTV Option
“The Regza WL800A, VL800A and SL800A models include iPTV which means that sharing a YouTube video with the whole family is as simple as dropping the file from your computer across to a shared menu and showing it on the TV screen. It’s all about using technology to connect and share within the home,” Mr Wilkinson added.

The ideal partner for Toshiba TVs and home entertainment systems, with enhanced image quality and progressive picture quality and numerous playback options, they are perfect whether you’re watching movies or viewing slideshows of digital photos.
