Toshiba Unveils its First Four LCD TV Series for 2010 with Enhancements at Every Level
WAYNE, N.J., March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Toshiba America Consumer Products L.L.C. ("Toshiba"), a market leader in LCD TV, today announced the availability of four new LCD TV Series for 2010. Complementing the brand's new and upcoming LED product lines, Toshiba continues to offer a wide range of new LCD televisions, including the G300, E200 and C100 LCD TV, and CV100 LCD / DVD Combo TV, each featuring the new Horizon(TM) design. Boasting a slimming tapered bezel and attractive front panel gradation, the new Horizon design creates a more modern, elegant appearance. Available in a variety of sizes, from 19 to 55 inches, these new LCD series provide an exciting array of home entertainment options for every lifestyle and room in the home.
Underscoring Toshiba's commitment to stellar picture quality, as well as elements that enhance consumer's overall television viewing experience, these new LCD televisions feature several key picture quality and convenience technologies. DynaLight(TM) monitors the brightness level of each video frame and automatically adjusts for deeper black levels, creating higher dynamic contrast for a more realistic picture. Photo Frame capability allows these sets to act as both a TV and a Digital Photo Frame. Consumers can now showcase their favorite memories as a clear, crisp slide show on the high-resolution television screen, all controlled with just the TV remote. Additionally, Gaming Mode takes the gaming experience to a new level by reducing game control delay, thus giving the player improved reaction time and a more realistic playing experience. This is great when used with popular gaming consoles, or with PC games using the TVs PC Input.
"We have enhanced our 2010 TV Line-up from top to bottom" said Scott Ramirez, VP, TV Marketing. "For 2010, both LED and LCD are important TV categories, and we have ensured that our new LCD models get enhancements that make them compelling values for our consumers. With features like DynaLight, Photo Frame capability, Gaming Mode, and the new Horizon design, these models will become must haves in their category."
For sports enthusiasts and action movie fans alike, the G300 boasts ClearFrame(TM) 120Hz which doubles the video frames from 60 per second to 120 per second, designed to virtually eliminate motion blur without decreasing image brightness. Whether watching a football player angling toward the end zone, or eagerly following a high speed movie chase, the picture is crisp and clear regardless of image motion.
The G300 series is available in 40-inch, 46-inch, and newly offered 54.6-inch measured diagonally.
Enjoy a stunning picture bursting with color and clarity with 1080p Full HD, offered on the E200. With twice the pixel resolution of 720p HD models, Full HD is the pinnacle in picture quality. Using Full HD, there's no need to scale down a 1080 signal. This series also comes fully equipped with convenient connectivity benefits such as 4 HDMI Digital Inputs with InstaPort(TM) and REGZA-LINK, and a Hi-Res PC Input. To compliment these features, the E200 also adds a subtle luminance to the logo, furthering the stylish appeal of the television.
