QUALITY ENTERTAINMENT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

Sydney, AUSTRALIA – 16 July 2012. Cinema-style movie viewing in the comfort of your own home is more accessible and affordable than ever thanks to Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited’s latest range of TVs.

Announcing six new series of TVs (VL, TL, RL, HL, EL and DL) to choose from, consumers will benefit from the combination of stunning picture quality with connectivity as well as a sleek new design.

“Whether your family enjoys watching movies, viewing sport, gaming, accessing the Internet or streaming content from your notebook, Toshiba’s new range has all the features you need to ensure the best viewing experience,” said Justin White, Toshiba (Australia) Pty Limited, Product Marketing Manager.

Picture Quality
Using Edge LED technology, Toshiba’s new range delivers incredible clarity, more vibrant colours and more pronounced contrast. Paired with Edge LED backlit screens, content comes to life with Toshiba’s innovative picture quality.

Leading the range is the Toshiba VL900 series, featuring either a 47” or 55” Full HD LED screen with super slim 2mm stylish black bezel.

Included in the box are four passive 3D viewing glasses that ensure a cinema quality viewing experience is as close as your loungeroom. Passive viewing also allows for dual full-screen play mode for immersive cooperative and competitive gaming .

“The Toshiba VL900 is the perfect choice for families who enjoy watching fast paced sports or action movies. The inclusion of Advance Motion & Resolution (AMR) technology also helps to reduce motion blur for smooth viewing,” Mr White said.

Connectivity
“We know that consumers are multitasking while they watch TV, whether it’s on a smartphone, Tablet or notebook, so allowing connectivity between these devices in the home is a key focus for Toshiba,” continued Mr White.

The RL, TL and VL series feature Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) technology, allowing you to connect to your TV wirelessly from your WiDi compatible computer to view HD video, photos, online content, or any PC application on your big screen, directly from your notebook.

“Toshiba’s connected TV feature, Toshiba Places, provides all the extra features you’d expect in a connected world. These include social media connectivity, access to multilingual international news services, live music concerts, and much more. You can also turn your smartphone into a remote thanks to our free Toshiba TV Remote App for iOS and Android™,” Mr White added.
