More Ultra HD Announcements on Opening Day of CES8 Jan, 2013 By: Angelique Flores
While many companies made their big announcements on 4K yesterday, a few waited for the official opening day of the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES).
Toshiba announced its L9300 series of Ultra HD TVs, which have several image enhancement features and Cloud TV functionality.
“Clearly, the best image processing will create the best picture quality, and Toshiba has the advantage of introducing its second-generation UltraHD processing in 2013 with the advanced CEVO 4K Quad+Dual Core Processor," said Scott Ramirez, VP of product marketing and development with Toshiba America Information Systems, Digital Products Division. “Toshiba's L9300 Series models with Ultra HD, CEVO 4K, 3D and new Cloud TV functionality create the perfect centerpiece for anyone interested in creating the ultimate home theater.”
The Ultra HD series is scheduled to ship this summer.
Meanwhile, THX unveiled its 4K Certification, which features new tests and parameters to ensure that the latest 4K HD TVs are able to present content in full Ultra HD resolution. To be awarded this certification, displays must pass up to 600 rigorous tests and measurements.
The THX 4K Certification program is the only performance standard available for higher resolution displays.
The new Sharp LC-60HQ10 is the first THX 4K Certified display, capable of converting standard HD content into a 4K picture.
