Toshiba Rolls Out HD LCD & 3 DVD Players
0Overall Score

Toshiba has launched its high definition, REGZA XV500 LCD TV series along with a suite of DVD players.

The REGZA XV500 is one of the only LCD panels to combine full HD, with an integrated digital tuner and a thin-line bezel, according to Toshiba.

 Designed for movie buffs and avid sports fans, this new range brings action to life with 100Hz technology, which introduces an extra frame between the original frames to reproduce a smooth and natural movement for fast action scenes. It also brings compact style to the living room with a thin-line bezel screen, only three centimetres wide. 

 Combined with its latest DVD line up – which includes HDMI technology for convenient single cable AV connection in pristine quality – Toshiba is once again delivering exceptional images into Australia’s digital living room.

 The XV500 series delivers true-to-life pictures thanks to Toshiba’s breakthrough Clear Frame, Dynalight, Cinespeed and Ambient Light Sensor technologies.
To avoid possible motion blur with fast motion video, Clear Frame doubles the frame rate to 100 frames per second, or 100Hz.


Dynalight controls the brightness level of each video frame, making images and colours more realistic.  Ambient Light Sensor makes the XV500 series respond to room light conditions, adjusting their brightness to ensure optimum picture quality. The sensor detects the room condition and TV changes brightness to reproduce the best-fit picture to you.

 The XV500 series is available in 37″, 42″ and 46″ screen options. These screens provide a multitude of connectivity options, with the inclusion of three HDMI 1.3 ports and REGZA LINK technology.

Providing device synching at its best, the XV500’s REGZA LINK technology eliminates the need for multiple remotes when connecting supporting Toshiba notebooks and other compatible AV devices – all devices are simply streamlined through one remote.

Toshiba’s three new stylish DVD players are a slim 43 millimetres with a black front panel featuring silver accents – a display designed to complement today’s LCD screens.

 These new models deliver enhanced image quality and viewing flexibility, whether enjoying movie collections or watching digital photography slideshows.


The DVD players feature Progressive Scan and provide playback support for JPG, MP3 & DivX files.

The SD-890 DVD player has the added convenience of HDMI – a single cable AV connection that transfers pure digital video and multi-channel audio to high definition televisions without scaling down or compressing the signal, keeping sound and picture quality pristine.

 Like the XV500 LCD series, the SD-890 also makes connectivity easy, with REGZA LINK single remote technology and a USB port enabling numerous playback options.
