Toshiba launched a new series of HDTVs at it’s Toshiba Theatre 2014 event held at Shangari-la hotel last Friday.
The event showcase 4 series of HDTVs. Three new series of ‘Pro Theatre’ in the ASEAN market: the flagship L9300 Series; the L4300 series, Toshiba’s first TVs with the AndroidTM operating system; and the L3300 series featuring “Turbo LED” and “Detail Booster”.
The Pro Theatre series also features include Intelligent Auto view which automatically adjusts the contrast and brightness to adapt to your viewing surroundings. There is also audio source filtering which automatically turns any song into an Karaoke track by filtering off the voice.
■ L9300 series – Flagship TVs
Featuring four times the resolution of today’s 1080p full HD TVs, the L9300 series delivers the ultimate viewing experience for movies and TV shows. Powered by Toshiba’s proprietary CEVO 4K and equipped with a Quad core CPU, the L9300 series delivers the highest quality Ultra HD image processing, including “Resolution Restoration” to restore clean, near Ultra HD image quality from less than 4K content and “Surface Brilliance Enhancement” that brings images to life like never before.

With over eight million pixels on an Ultra HD display, the L9300 series allows viewers to sit closer to the screen than with a standard HD TV set without being distracted by the pixel structure. Not only that, Toshiba’s advanced image processing technologies enable viewers to enjoy pin-sharp images and read small text easily.
In the demonstration, the 4K set is placed next to a conventional 1080P display. Seriously, unless you are just 50cm away from the screen, you might not be able to differentiate the minute differences in image quality between the two. Secondly, the 4K content availability is a repeat of history when there weren’t much HD contents for the HD TV sets. Nevertheless, 1080P upscaled videos on the 4K screen will look equally good on the larger screen.
The L9300 series, available in 58- and 84-inch models, is scheduled to ship in the fourth quarter of 2013.
