Written by Oonagh Reidy     17/07/2012 | 03:18 | Category: 3D TV

TV maker goes gung-ho on Cinema TV with 6 new LEDs - from 55" to 23"


The Japanese giant has announced 6 LEDs - 55" Full HD right down to a modest 23" TV/DVD combi - all with "stunning" picture quality and "Cinema-style movie viewing."

Edge LED backlit screens, passive and active 3D, 1080p Full HD playback, web enabled, Tosh Remote App (iOS & Android), and Places a music, games and entertainment hub, are just some of the specs on the 2012 TV line up.

Social apps like YouTube, Facebook and Flickr apps are also part of the mix.

The high end Toshiba 55" also has dual full-screen play mode for gaming and most of the sets have Intel Wireless Display technology, to connect your TV wirelessly from a WiDi compatible PC to view HD content on your big screen.

The six new models range from high end VL900 series 55", to 46" 3D LED, 40" HD LED, 32" LCD and a 23" HD TV/DVD combi.

One of the major pluses of the new sets is the Active Backlight Control System that monitors the brightness of each frame and auto adjusts the TVs backlight to produce deeper blacks and increased detail, even in low light, says Toshiba.

Danish designers Jacob Jensen  also had a hand in the design of the new LEDs to give some "modern elegance"
