Mas ai é que está ROBERTO!:legal:

Essa é a grande sacada, pois ai a alta definição seria assesivel a todos independente de formato ou player, imagina em um cartão destes um filme HD a minha TV VIERA tem entrada para este cartão, no caso eu nem precisaria de player mais, ou seja acaba esse negócio de guerra de formatos e toda esta baboseira, tudo giraria em torno das entradas do aparelhos seja pen drive, seja cartão, todas as tvs já estão saindo com entrada USB e CARTÃO, imagina a maravilha esse sistema de recarga!
Entradas USB (e SD): tendência cada vez + comum em diversos aparelhos de diversos fabricantes. :legal:

Agora o mais complicado seria na recarga, como o sujeito recarrega e depois faz para não tirar uma cópia para si???E como o filme gravado na sua recarga se apagaria???Para ser recarregado novamente???

Será que teria que ser desenvolvido algum outro tipo de sistema de proteção contra cópias das cópias? (algo parecido com o CPRM (content protection for recordable media) em gravadores de dvd compatíveis com CPRM + midias DVD graváveis compatíveis com CPRM...)

Acho que sim ROBERTO, algo do tipo , por exemplo em um posto de recarga os caras conseguiriam apagar o conteudo do seu PEN DRIVE ou cartão e na sua casa vc também conseguiria apagar, mas não passar o conteúdo para um PC, ou um gravador. E talvez o conteudo teria tipo o mesmo periodo da locação por exemplo 24 horas para vc assistir ou mais ai a locadora determinaria o tempo, depois disso algum código travaria o conteudo não sendo mais possivel reproduzir e nem vc podendo ficar com a cópia, sei lá são CONJUCTURAS BEM DOIDAS, mas acho que para dar certo teria que ser algo do tipo! Ou tipo aqueles PARUQES de diversão em SHOPPING onde vc compra o cartão e recarrega, estes postos teriam seus PEN DRIVES ou CARTÕES próprios anti pirataria, onde vc comprava deles uma vez só e só servisse neles para recarga na máquina deles sendo inviolável para gravação do conteudo, apenas para regravação entendeu? Sei lá coisa do tipo!

Apenas suposições de como seria alugar conteudos em PEN DRIVES e CARTÃO, apenas suposições a la JETSONS!:lol:

A sua "locadora Jetsons" deve aparecer ainda esse ano...

Títulos da Warner e Paramount na "Locadora Jetsons" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1477944&postcount=20)

Em 2009 títulos em definição standard. Quem sabe à partir de 2010 títulos em alta definição...

É comentado sobre 2 a 3 minutos para passar o filme em definição standard para o cartão de memória.

MOD Systems Sees Video Delivery Via SD Cards

http://newteevee.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/mod_systems.jpg?w=148&h=300

MOD Systems is betting that you’ll still shop for digital movies at physical retail locations in the future. But instead of browsing the aisles and rows of DVDs, you’ll walk up to an automated kiosk, download video onto an SD card, and plug that card into a device connected to your TV (or into the TV itself). MOD announced today that it is demoing this SD solution with Toshiba at CES.

I rolled my eyes when I first read about MOD. Between DVDs from Redbox, downloading movies from iTunes and streaming through Netflix — does the world need yet another way to get video content? Plus, SD cards are tiny and bound to be something frequently lost. So I talked with MOD Systems co-founder and vice chairman Anthony Bay by phone yesterday to find out more.

“Direct delivery into the home will continue to grow,” said Bay, “But will direct delivery into the home be the only way people get content? People still buy stuff on impulse.”

There are three main reasons MOD believes in its SD card storage solution: Storage, security and openness. Bay believes that optical storage via DVD and Blu-ray has hit its peak, but the silicon-based storage on an SD card can keep growing. Bay pointed out that you can buy a 16GB SD card that will hold 3 HD movies using the same compression as iTunes for $35.

Because security is a big issue with content owners like Hollywood studios, MOD thinks SD cards are ideal. The format has the storage key built in, providing native security. But because SD cards are open, they are not locked into a proprietary format and can be plugged into any device with an SD card reader, allowing for greater transport of content.

Last October, MOD received $35 million in funding from Toshiba and NCR, one of the largest self-service kiosk vendors in the world (NCR is providing DVD vending kiosks for Blockbuster). MOD will leverage NCR’s extensive retail network to deploy its service widely. Bay said MOD-powered kiosks would feature the third-party branding, and that it takes 2-3 minutes to transfer a full-length standard definition movie to the card.

MOD also announced today that it has signed agreements with Warner Bros. and Paramount Digital Entertainment to distribute video content — including new releases. Unfortunately, the agreement only covers standard definition content, not HD. The lack of HD content is a pretty glaring omission for a company looking to get into the movie distribution business. Bay recognizes this limitation, but says the lack of HD was a function of the long download times for content and the capacity of the cards. “2009 is standard def,” said Bay, “2010 is high def.”

MOD Systems’ value proposition make more sense after speaking with them — but I still think they have a lot of obstacles to overcome. There will be a place for shopping at a physical store for purely digital video, but that video could just as easily be beamed directly to your home and be waiting for you when you got back. Plus, people understand DVDs as a way to watch movies. There’s a learning curve to get them to understand that the SD card is capable of the same thing. And let’s not forget that, in our cluttered world, DVDs have a nice size to them — they aren’t easily lost. MOD will have to figure out a way to get a high-capacity SD card onto someone’s keychain or something similar so they can carry it with them everywhere and make that impulse purchase.

Warner, Paramount put titles on SD cards

UPDATE: Studios sign on to MOD Systems kiosks
By Paul Sweeting and Marcy Magiera -- Video Business, 1/8/2009

JAN. 8 | LAS VEGAS—MOD Systems has signed deals with Warner Bros. and Paramount Digital Entertainment to make their movies available via downloads to SD cards at kiosks in retail stores later this year.

In a related move, longtime indie retailer and Screenplay founder Mark Vrieling has joined MOD Systems as chief content officer.

In his new role, which was finalized last week, Vrieling will be responsible for securing content from the studios and other program suppliers for MOD’s prospective download-to-SD-card system, developing the title assortment to be included and helping MOD refine its retail implementation.

Warner and Paramount are the first major studios to join indie suppliers including Anchor Bay Entertainment, First Look Studios and Image Entertainment in making titles available to MOD, which said it now has rights to 4,000 video titles and 4 million music tracks. MOD is scouting pilot retail locations for a launch of the digital video service sometime this year.

Vrieling will continue to oversee Screenplay but is expected to dedicate the majority of his time to MOD.

“I think the two are actually a perfect marriage,” Vrieling told VB at the Consumer Electronics Show here.

Once MOD is up and running, Vrieling hopes to integrate it with Screenplay so that Screenplay clients will be able to offer customers a digital rental or purchase option in their stores along with streamed movie previews.

“Because of Screenplay, I already have a lot of the pieces in place to do this for the retailer, in terms of ingesting content, managing the metadata, accounting and auditing,” he said. “It’s what I’ve been working toward for a long time.”

Vrieling said MOD is in talks with all the major studios but declined to comment on whether any other deals are imminent.

“The thing that is most interesting to the studios is expanded points of distribution,” MOD vice chairman and co-founder Anthony Bay said. “If they can use this to get distribution in airports and convenience stores and other places where DVD doesn’t have much of a presence, that’s all upside for them.”

Bay said he expects the download-to-SD-card system to deploy at retail, at least on a test basis, this year. It will be possible to start a test with just two major studios on board, he said.

Bay wouldn’t say when he expects to sign other studios, but added, “different studios have different concerns, but nobody thinks it’s a bad idea. They all get that this can and should be part of their digital strategy.”

“I think people are coming around to seeing SD as the right portable format,” he said. “Optical disc is not a good portable format, and other things like USB drives, flash drives, are not secure.”

The first retail deployments are likely to follow the “retail-attended model,” in which consumers will browse, select and order titles from a touch screen, but the final fulfillment will be from a manned station in the store, before transitioning to a fully automated system, Bay said.

MOD last year raised $35 million in a first round of venture funding led by Toshiba and NCR, which took minority stakes in the startup.

Toshiba is expected to roll out a line of set-top boxes with SD card slots for playing back digital video downloads saved to the memory cards. ATM maker NCR, which has swiftly expanded into the DVD kiosk business, will build the digital kiosks MOD plans to roll out to stores.

Acho que sim ROBERTO, algo do tipo , por exemplo em um posto de recarga os caras conseguiriam apagar o conteudo do seu PEN DRIVE ou cartão e na sua casa vc também conseguiria apagar, mas não passar o conteúdo para um PC, ou um gravador.

Resta saber como será o sistema de DRM utilizado nesses títulos da Warner e Paramount...

Será que pode ser via CPRM mesmo?...
Provavelmente sim. Cartão SD/SDHC (e futuramente SDXC) compatível com CPRM + hardware compatível com CPRM para reproduzir o conteúdo do cartão.

Talvês o filme poderia conter flag do tipo "copy once", ou seja, seria permitida a cópia das máquinas da "locadora Jetsons" para o cartão SD do usuário, mas cópias das cópias não sendo permitido.



What is the CPRM?
CPRM - Content Protection for Recordable Media - provides the method of copyright protection for SD-Audio and SD Binding technology. This content protection and certification/authentication standard was jointly developed by 4C Entity LLC.

Is CPRM applied to all data types stored on the SD card?
No, copy-protection is not mandatory for all data types and can be asserted selectively at the discretion of the content owner. CPRM technology, a copy protection mechanism, is embedded in all SD cards and can be used to protect copyrighted content such as most commercially distributed music and movie files. To use CPRM with SD cards, CPRM compliant products such as SD-Audio players, SD-Video mobile phones or enabled devices such as a PC with CPRM enabled SD slot or CPRM enabled USB read/write are also required.

Mais uma análise com o dvd player Toshiba XD-E500
Nesta análise alemã, nota 3 de 5 para qualidade da imagem.



Toshiba XDE500
Beauty for DVDs

All buy today, the new high-resolution TV ( "Full HD", "HD ready"). Only the corresponding videos ( "BluRay") are not yet out of the starting blocks. Precisely for this, Toshiba DVD player XDE500 developed: he undergoes a beauty ordinary DVDs. In addition, he expects the coarser picture of the DVD to the finer picture of the HD-TV high.

Test
Whether or not this so-called upscaling really works, we have viewed. The XDE500 offers three levels of quality to choose from: the actual image sharpening, and also either a color or contrast improvement. Result: The difference of mere sharpening is pleasant, and you will not miss anymore. As we are a quarter of an hour after the whole image enhancement off, the image appears surprisingly washy and soßig. A similar impression as it did in the transition from videotape to DVD. The additional color and contrast enhancement is dependent on the film. Time it brings a further improvement visible, sometimes not.

http://www.guter-rat.de/ratgeber/images/12085958_a96371d88c.jpg

Computer
Even at a 24-inch computer monitor with high resolution (1920 times 1200 pixels) image enhancement jumps immediately to mind.

HDMI
The procedure works only on the HDMI connection, which most modern TVs, but not all monitors have.

Cliffs
For TVs as monitors, it is sometimes useful to their own image-enhancing procedures, such as the sport mode off. Otherwise, the various tuning systems in each other's way and produce disturbances.

Conclusion
The price of 159 euros, already in the mail from 135 euros, making the purchase attractive. Compared with a normal DVD player is the accounting surcharge of about 50 euros for the image enhancement almost a gift. It is also to get over that XDE500 no USB port or card slot, and only plays CDs and DVDs.

Technical Data
The Toshiba plays CDs, VCDs, DVDs, there DivX movies, MP3 and WMA music and JPEG photos from a CD or DVD again. Maße: 43 x 20 x 5 cm, 1,5 kg. Dimensions: 43 x 20 x 5 cm, 1.5 kg. Power 11 Watt (DVD player).

Análise da Trusted Reviews com a Toshiba Regza 46ZV555D (Com Super Resolution - "Resolution +")



http://img397.imageshack.us/img397/4670/regzazv555dtd1.jpg

But the big question is: does Resolution+ live up to the hype? It certainly does. The extent of its picture boosting benefits isn't initially clear, but once you start turning it on and off in the setup menu you can really see how much difference it makes. With pictures from the built-in Freeview tuner or 576p DVD images, Resolution+ instantly throws everything into sharper focus, making edges look cleaner and more pronounced and improving the clarity of fine detail. It's most clearly demonstrated by the scrolling text and graphics on Sky News - the words are more focused and steady, plus the detail on the newsreader's face suddenly become a lot more prominent.

We also tested out the deck's upscaling with the Silicon Optix Benchmark disc (played via Scart from a non-upscaling DVD player) and the tricky test patterns highlights just how good its upscaling is - there are absolutely no jaggies on the rotating bar pattern, even when the diagonal lines reach the most acute angle, plus fine detail is crisply resolved and it handles the flapping flag clip with all the skill and smoothness of a good upscaling DVD deck.

Resolution+ has five levels and the improvements are obviously most visible in the highest 5 setting, but even at 2 or 3 image clarity is greatly improved. It's worth pointing out that the technology can't be used for all sources, as the set sensibly disables it when you're watching hi-def material, which means that the processing isn't applied to sources that don't need it. It's also worth pointing out that it doesn't apply the processing to ‘inactive' parts of the screen, which we thought would be a problem (particularly with football, where the sharpness of grass is an integral part of the HD experience) but since it can't add detail that isn't there in the first place, you're not really missing out.

We also tried it out on the notoriously poor-quality TMF channel and although it can't work miracles (or do anything about the rampant block noise) Resolution+ does make music videos look more clearly defined. On the downside, Resolution+ isn't always great at distinguishing between picture information and noise. as a result it sometimes emphasises artefacts in the original source, such as the smudgy mosquito noise surrounding moving objects and text. While we're impressed by what the technology can do, the results are nowhere near as sharp as real high definition.

Verdict

The 46ZV555D boasts terrific performance and a comprehensive feature list, which makes it feel like a real bargain - particularly when you consider that similarly-specified 46in sets from the likes of Sony and Pioneer cost a lot more. Resolution+ makes a very worthwhile addition to Toshiba's enviable arsenal of picture processing technology, and although calling the results ‘near hi-def' is a bit generous, we can't deny that it does a fantastic job of upscaling and sharpening standard definition material. When combined with the rest of Toshiba's picture processing, it delivers satisfying SD pictures albeit with one or two caveats. Not to mention superb quality hi-def pictures and sound.

Toshiba introducing SD-friendly players for flash card movies that no one buys

We hate to harsh on Toshiba here, we honestly do, but what in the world is it thinking? As if its clearly unimpressive Super Resolution Technology wasn't embarrassing enough, we're now hearing that the outfit is expected to release a line of prototype players at CES next week that tout SD card slots. Why, you ask? To accept the flash card movies that -- you guessed it -- no one on the entire planet is interested in.

Com possibilidade de 2TB de capacidade de armazenamento ninguém no mundo terá interesse em colocar filmes nesses cartões não é mesmo?

Será que os cartões de 2TB da Sony só suportarão dados?...Claro que não né, assim como nos cartões SDXC, vai ter gente colocando filmes em SD e HD neles.



SanDisk and Sony to expand Memory Stick PRO / Micro to 2TB

by Darren Murph, posted Jan 8th 2009 at 7:28PM

Monkey see, monkey do, eh? No sooner do we learn that SDHC will eventually morph into SDXC with a capacity limit of 2TB than Sony and SanDisk announce that the Memory Stick PRO / Memory Stick Micro will soon reach that same ceiling. In fact, the announcement is so new that the format doesn't even have a name (something along the lines of Extended High Capacity, probably), giving both of the formats the ability to reach 2TB on a single card. If all goes to plan, production should get going on the new formats sometime this year, so it's safe to say the race to a new top is officially on.

Toshiba to expand the powers of the TV set-top box

By PETER SVENSSON – 1 day ago

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Toshiba Corp. is planning to use the Cell processor, the brain of Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 game console, to create an ultra-powerful TV set-top box that can record up to six high-definition channels at once and improve the look of any video.

The box and a separate flat-panel LCD TV will be sold as a package this year in Japan for between $5,000 and $10,000, said Scott Ramirez, vice president of marketing for Toshiba America Consumer Products. It may come later to the U.S., he told press gathered Wednesday at the International Consumer Electronics Show.

Toshiba has been experimenting with several different ways to expand the use of the zippy Cell processor, which was jointly developed by Toshiba, Sony and IBM Corp. Toshiba has demonstrated laptops and TVs with Cell processors, but the PlayStation remains the main use for the chip.

The Cell TV box will accept video content from cable, memory chips and other sources, raise their apparent resolution, then send the video signal wirelessly to the TV, Ramirez said.

"You're going to have the cleanest picture you've ever seen," Ramirez said.

The box will also be able to record content to a hard drive, like a digital video recorder. It would thus combine the functions of several different set-top boxes, but it's unclear how it would work with cable or satellite hookups, particularly when it comes to recording several channels at once.

Agora fala sério hein, estas tvs REGZA da TOSHIBA são um show a parte, que imagem! Só acho que a TOSHIBA aqui no Brasil é muito devagar com lançamentos, quanto vc quer apostar que no dia que lançarem o XD E500 aqui não será o de segunda geração e sim o primeiro que saiu!

If you've ever wished out loud for movie distribution on solid state memory, a glimmer of a speck of hope has just popped on to the radar thanks to a partnership between digital media delivery system company MOD Systems and movie studios. Anchor Bay, First Look, Image Entertainment, and -- wait for it -- Warner and Paramount are among the studios signed up to set 4,000 titles loose at a kiosk near you. The bad news is that only standard definition titles are going to be set loose to devices or SD cards. That standard def limitation is a whine, we know -- we like where this is headed

Para mim esse é o futuro! Acho que se der certo com certeza as locadoras ficarão reduzidas a quiosques, onde vc mesmo recarregara o seu cartão e assistira onde bem entender ou seja qualquer aparelho que leia este cartão, nesta primeira experiencia será só imagem SD mas com certeza se a coisa vingar teremos imagem HD fácil, haja que já existe o cartão SD com 2TB, é só uma questão de tempo para as memórias flash dominarem tudo.

Muito mais práticas, baratas e resistentes, e o mais importante desta noticia foi 2 GIGANTES da INDÚSTRIA WARNER,PARAMOUNT estarem apostando no novo sistema de distribuição de video, colocando de cara 4.000 titulos cada! Imagina uma locadora 24hs!:D

Pipoc@,

Esse Network player da Toshiba além de rodar os tradicionais dvd´s, deverá rodar filmes por streaming via CinemaNow além de ter esses serviços da Widget channel e Yahoo!.

Esse futuro Network player e também as futuras tv´s com conexão à net terão também embutido o recurso do Windows Extender para o Microsoft Media Center, que permitirá que várias tv´s na residência fiquem conectadas à central do Media Center no PC, para compartilhar conteúdo (videos da net, dvd´s ripados, fotos, músicas, etc).



CES, LAS VEGAS - JANUARY 7, 2009
TOSHIBA INTRODUCES NETWORK DEVICES DESIGNED TO DELIVER ON THE PROMISE OF THE CONNECTED HOME
New TV, LCD TV/DVD Combo and Standalone Player Utilize Widget Channel, Developed by Intel® and Yahoo!®, and Microsoft’s Windows Extender for Media Center Platform to Deliver an Exciting Content Solution for the Home

Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. ("Toshiba"), announced its new audio/video (A/V) devices with Network Player capabilities, which deliver on the promise of digital convergence in the home. Toshiba is launching this initiative across three product categories - REGZA® LCD TVs, LCD TV/DVD Combos and standalone players - in an effort to meet individual consumer needs.

Toshibas new A/V devices offer consumers access to a diverse range of rich content over the Internet. With an extensive library of TV shows and movies, music, sports, and information services such as stock prices and weather forecasts at their fingertips, consumers will be provided with greater flexibility to easily customize and enhance their entertainment experience.

Getting Connected

Toshiba’s A/V devices with network player capabilities use a combination of two core components, including the Widget Channel, developed by Intel and Yahoo! and Microsoft’s Extender for Windows Media Center.

While consumers may be familiar with widgets from the PC world, TV Widgets, enabled by the Widget Channel framework, now take that simple to use “dashboard” experience and place it into the TV allowing consumers direct access to numerous sources of content simply via their remote control. While some TV Widgets may be pre-installed, consumers now also have the flexibility to customize their experience by adding widgets of their own selection based on their interests or needs. TV Widgets will feature a rich array of content and as more TV Widgets become available, consumers can add them to the Network Players to enhance their assortment.

By integrating Extenders for Windows Media Center in Toshiba’s new A/V products with Network Player capabilities, the devices will act as “hubs” for delivery of content anywhere in the home. Using a home network, Extender for Windows Media Center technology allows users to access a wide range of digital content from Windows Media Center on the PC to their big screen TV. Windows Media Center also delivers an extensive amount of Internet TV and movie content, live and recorded TV with the addition of a TV tuner, plus photos, music, home videos and more.

The combination of the two software platforms in one hardware device will deliver on the promise of the new digital lifestyle.

Toshiba will approach the market by offering several choices from which consumers can select the product that best fits their particular needs.

The Network Player capabilities described above are scheduled to be built into certain models of Toshiba’s REGZA LCD TVs. This will provide consumers with easy access to the rich media experience without the need for an external set top box or device.

As the market leader in the LCD TV/DVD Combo category, Toshiba will also integrate the Network Player capability to offer flexibility and simplicity for consumers whether they choose to use it as a primary TV in the home or in the bedroom, kitchen or children’s room.

Toshiba will also develop a standalone player, which acts as a hub for content delivery into the entertainment space. The new player can deliver content directly from the Internet, content from the PC with Extenders for Windows Media Center or from its built in DVD player with 1080p upconversion. With an SD card slot and USB port for added flexibility, the device allows consumers to access their entertainment content in any room of the house and all at a value that consumers have come to expect.

Toshiba’s A/V devices with Network Player capabilities will feature picture quality enhancement technologies, allowing viewers to enjoy a wide range of content upconverted to near HD quality. The new models are planned to ship in the second half of 2009, and product pricing and availability will be announced later this year.

Títulos da Warner e Paramount na "Locadora Jetsons" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1477944&postcount=20)

Em 2009 títulos em definição standard. Quem sabe à partir de 2010 títulos em alta definição...

Resta saber como será o sistema de DRM utilizado nesses títulos da Warner e Paramount...

Será que pode ser via CPRM mesmo?...
Provavelmente sim. Cartão SD/SDHC (e futuramente SDXC) compatível com CPRM + hardware compatível com CPRM para reproduzir o conteúdo do cartão.

Talvês o filme poderia conter flag do tipo "copy once", ou seja, seria permitida a cópia das máquinas da "locadora Jetsons" para o cartão SD do usuário, mas cópias das cópias não sendo permitido.

Por Daniel Serrano
A Toshiba acaba de anunciar o lançamento do seu mais novo HD externo com a incrível capacidade de armazenamento de 500 GB. O produto deverá ser vendido, a princípio, nos Estados Unidos. A empresa está sugerindo a venda a um preço de 180 dólares. Não há, ainda, informações sobre o lançamento em outros países.
Com acabamento sofisticado, o HD é oferecido na cor black piano, com acabamento em branco. O produto oferece uma boa resistência a choques e vibrações graças a um sensor interno que ao identificar um movimento extremo, como o causado por uma queda ou pancada, trava o produto, protegendo-o contra danos.
O HD poderá ser utilizado em computadores, notebooks ou sistemas de Home Theater para armazenamento de mídia.

Toshiba anuncia parceria estratégica reforçada para expandir a oferta de mídia digital via cartões SD

Toshiba vai investir na MOD Systems e desenvolver decodificadores dedicados

TÓQUIO--(BUSINESS WIRE (http://www.businesswire.com/))--A Toshiba Corporation anunciou hoje que fará um investimento de capital na MOD Systems Incorporated, líder da indústria, sediada nos EUA, que fornece sistemas de produção de conteúdo digital para o setor varejista. A Toshiba vai investir US$ 20 milhões na MOD Systems, que se somam ao investimento anterior de US$ 4 milhões, feito em setembro de 2007, perfazendo um investimento total da Toshiba de US$ 24 milhões.
A MOD Systems oferece aos varejistas um sistema de produção de mídia digital que permite aos consumidores baixar conteúdo digital para gravação em formato óptico. No primeiro semestre de 2009, a empresa vai expandir o seu sistema atual de download de música com um novo sistema, oferecendo downloads diretos de conteúdo diversificado de entretenimento, incluindo filmes e seriados de TV para o setor varejista. Os consumidores poderão usar cartões SD, o cartão de mídia sólido e compacto mais usado para baixar conteúdo e trazer entretenimento para casa. A MOD Systems está agora em discussão com parceiros potenciais, incluindo estúdios e outros fornecedores de conteúdo, fabricantes de hardware e varejistas.
Juntamente com a mídia convencional em pacote, como os CDs e DVDs, mais e mais pessoas estão se voltando para a Internet como fonte de conteúdo. Na medida em que a produção de conteúdo de música e vídeo doméstico baseado na Internet continua a crescer, a Toshiba observa a crescente demanda do consumidor por novas maneiras de adquirir entretenimento digital. Baixar conteúdo em cartões SD de lojas de varejo abre caminho para um novo serviço de entrega, oferecendo um amplo leque de títulos de alta qualidade com maior velocidade de download e segurança completa. O potencial deste modelo altamente promissor de negócios convenceu a Toshiba a investir na MOD Systems
A maior parte do conteúdo de vídeo é hoje distribuída em discos ópticos. A expansão da infra-estrutura de banda larga aponta para um rápido crescimento de downloads de conteúdo digital para consumo em casa. No entanto, os downloads de grandes fontes de dados em alta velocidade, como os filmes, exigem uma conexão de alta velocidade capaz de processar banda larga. E um modelo de negócios bem sucedido oferecendo valor para todas as partes envolvidas exige tecnologia adequada para proteção de direitos autorais e transmissão segura. O download direto em ambientes de varejo responde inteiramente a estas exigências. Baixar conteúdo de vídeo em alta velocidade para um cartão SD oferecerá aos consumidores um meio simples e rápido de acessar entretenimento em vídeo.
A Toshiba vai desenvolver decodificadores dedicados para o serviço que permite que os consumidores assistam o conteúdo nas TVs, e também dispositivos portáteis que permitirão que o conteúdo seja visto e desfrutado em qualquer lugar. A Toshiba vai produzir e comercializar cartões SD de alta capacidade para o sistema. Oferecer esse ambiente físico e garantir que ele seja facilmente usado pelos consumidores deve promover a expansão do serviço de produção de mídia digital da MOD Systems.
A instalação de quiosques e outros dispositivos de auto-atendimento que permita downloads para cartões SD em lojas de varejo será feita pela NCR Corporation, outro investidor da MOD Systems. O conteúdo de entretenimento em vídeo será fornecido por estúdios de Hollywood e outros estúdios importantes. Quatro mil títulos serão alinhados e outros estarão disponíveis quando o serviço for lançado. Os downloads iniciais serão feitos em conteúdo de definição padrão (standard definition, SD), e o serviço será também aplicado a downloads de conteúdo de alta definição no futuro.
Descrição da MOD Systems:
Nome da empresa: MOD Systems Incorporated Presidente e diretor executivo: Mark Phillips Fundação: Março de 2005
Localização Seattle, Washington, EUA Negócios: Desenvolvimento, vendas e manutenção de sistemas de oferta de mídia digital para lojas de varejo. Atualmente oferece serviços de download de CD de música digital em loja de importantes varejistas globais.

"Ao integrar a tecnologia Extender para o Windows Media Center, os novos dispositivos AV da Toshiba poderão acessar uma ampla gama de conteúdos digitais a partir do Windows Media Center no PC através da ampla tela da TV, usando a rede doméstica. Incluído em cada cópia do Windows Vista Home Premium e Ultimate, o Windows Media Center, com a adição de um sintonizador de TV, transforma o PC em um poderoso DVR. A solução do Network player da Toshiba será desenvolvida para ser compatível com o Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Ultimate e Windows 7."



Toshiba Reinforces Collaboration with Intel, Microsoft with Line-Up of AV Devices
Jan 13, 2009 16:57
Nikkei Electronics Asia

Toshiba Corp has announced a major product initiative that will reinforce its collaboration with Intel Corp and Microsoft Corp respectively and allow users to access and enjoy a diverse range of high quality content and information services in the home.

The full potential of digital convergence can only be achieved through the integration of key software platforms. Toshiba is taking the lead in attaining this goal by launching AV devices including LCD TV, LCD TV/DVD combo and a standalone network player, which support the widget channel applications framework promoted by Intel and Yahoo! and include extender for Windows Media Center technology.

TV widgets which run on the widget channel applications framework developed by Intel and Yahoo! and driven by Intel's consumer electronics media processors, allow viewers to access rich content library over the Internet and information services via a user-friendly interface that appears on their TV screen. While some TV widgets will be pre-installed on the devices, consumers will have access to a growing universe of TV widgets as they become available.

By integrating extender for Windows Media Center technology, the new Toshiba AV devices will be able to access a wide range of digital content from Windows Media Center on the PC through their big screen TV using the home network. Included in every copy of Windows Vista Home Premium and Ultimate, Windows Media Center, with the addition of a TV tuner, turns the PC into a powerful DVR. Toshiba's network player solution will be developed to be compatible with Windows Vista Home Premium, Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows 7.

The new line-up of AV devices will also feature Toshiba's picture enhancement technologies, allowing viewers to enjoy a wide range of content at near HD picture quality.

According to Toshiba, it will bring the products to the US market in the second half of 2009.

Sobre utilização de tecnologia Super Resolution em upconvert

A Toshiba está com a tecnologia Super Resolution nos equipamentos com o processador SpursEngine, nas TV´s LCD com sistema "Meta Brain Premium" e no ano que vem com as tv´s com processador Cell B.E.

A NEC tem o seu sistema SRT

E agora a Hitachi também está entrando para o time de empresas com aplicação de tecnologia Super Resolution para melhorar a qualidade de upscaling convencional.

É comentado que a tecnologia da Hitachi funciona em material SD e também em material HD.

Mas ela tem que colocar essa tecnologia no mercado logo logo, pois a tendência é o FullHD se popularizar cada vez mais com o passar dos anos...

Este pessoal está certo em vez de mexer com o DVD Player ou a camcorder eles mexem com o Display (TV ou Projetor) assim vc pode comprar o DVD ou Filmadora de sua preferencia e a imagem será processada pelo Display fazendo a upconversion e tornando a imagem mesmo de fontes estandar em HD ou quase HD, o que é muito mais prático e flexivel talvez dispensando BD e outras fontes.

Review of the Toshiba XD - E500 DVD Player - Toshiba Takes the Battle to Blu-ray
December 13, 2008 by Jade Ruth

Toshiba;s HD-DVD format is dead, but the company hasn't given up the fight against Blu-ray. Although a new DVD player might not sound like the most exciting alternative to Sony's HD format , the XD-E5
00' s onboard extended Detail Enhancement (XDE) technology is designed to 'bring standard DVD quality closer to the HD experience' .

While neither the picture nor sound produced here can match HD quality, the 'E500's still a mighty fine DVD player. Watch the brilliant Iron Man and the picture the 'E500 produce s is outstanding. Detail levels are exceptional, while edge definition is pin-sharp and colors are pleasingly vibrant. Fast motion is equally excellent, with minima l judder and ghosting.

This sterling performance has been achieve d by combining 108op up scaling with the XDE tech, which analyses the entire picture on the fly and intelligently enhances edges as needed .

Brilliant sharp edges

There are three XDE modes: 'Sharp' does the edge enhancing, while 'Color ' is intended for bright outdoor scenes and 'Contrast ' for dark scenes. Stick to 'Sharp ' mode, though, and you'll get a DVD picture that might just be the best in class.

Audio is decent too, with the Toshiba producing a dramatic, direct delivery, although some rivals offer a little more in the way of refinement and low-end detail. So, the XD-E50 0 might not match Blu-ray, but it's still one of the most accomplished DVD players we've seen, and at a very reasonable price - what could be wrong with that?

Plus Points

'Sharp' mode offers incredibly detailed pictures; naturally vibrant colors; smooth, stable motion; nice styling.

Negative Points

Sound could do with just a little more refinement.

My Opinion

The styling is sparse, butthe'E500is designed to offer an HD experience.

PÔ se o XD E500 fosse um player difrente etc e tal tudo bem, mas é um DVDPLAYER ( Mais sofisticado é claro ) mas é um dvdplayer, e pelo preço lá de fora aqui daria para comercializar tranquilamente, não entendo o porque da demora de lançar por aqui???

Falando em XD E500, e o nosso amigo aqui do tópico que tinha comprado um e ficado de fazer um review, alguém tem noticias??? Ele sumiu!!!

Pena que o XD E500 não usa esse recurso SUPERESOLUTION! Mas deve dar uma bela melhorada na imagem!

Um amigo meu comprou recentemente um OPPO e disse que os DVDS nele ficaram animais, realmente o UPSCALING dele perto dos dvdplayers convencionais é bem superior, e o mais legal é que este meu amigo tem uma TV e um DVDPLAYER igual o meu ( VIERA + PHILPS HDMI ) ai vou dar um pulo no final de semana na casa dele para ver a difrença!

Agora o mais legal é que um amigo deste meu amigo importou o XD E500 e ele tem um OPPO e um PS3 e ele disse a este meu amigo que adorou o XD E500, e achou o upscaling dele superior ao OPPO e ao PS3, isso só aumenta mais a curiosidade, espero que a TOSHIBA traga logo o player para o Brasil para podermos comprovar tudo que se fala dele.

Vamos ver quem sabe esse ano DESENCANTA!:legal:

Comenta-se em 2 a 3 minutos.


Bay said MOD-powered kiosks would feature the third-party branding, and that it takes 2-3 minutes to transfer a full-length standard definition movie to the card.http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1480895&postcount=1753

Vai acabar influindo no tempo de cópia também o tipo de cartão SD utilizado (com as respectivas velocidades de gravação): SD, SDHC classe 2, SDHC classe 4, SDHC classe 6...

No caso de filmes em alta definição, o tempo para cópia (e tamanho do arquivo) vai depender da compressão utilizada...Dependendo do caso, seria melhor esperar pelos 104Mbps (300Mbps na especificação final) dos cartões SDXC...

Confirmado pela MOD Systems: O CPRM (Content Protecton for Recordable Media (ou Removable Media...)) é utilizado no sistema deles.



Hi Roberto –

Yes, we use CPRM in our system.


Best regards,

Adrienne


SD card vs SD card ("Secure Digital" vs "Super Digital")

A dúvida é: Será que conteúdo protegido utilizando o sistema CPRM irá rodar em cartões SD não compatíveis com CPRM?...(provavelmente não...)

Cartão SD Super Talent "Super Digital" (Não possui código CPRM)

http://www.supertalent.com/largeImage/5_119_367.jpg



High Capacity SD Cards

Looking for a low-cost solution to SDHC cards? High Capacity SuperDigital cards are identical to SecureDigital cards, but without the CPRM code (Content Protection for Removable Media).

The vast majority of consumer oriented digital electronics do not require the CPRM code, therefore the High Capacity SuperDigital Card is an excellent SDHC alternative that is 100% compatible with an endless list of consumer devices.

http://www.supertalent.com/products/sd_detail.php?series=High%20Capacity%20SD%20Cards

No caso da utilização de conteúdo protegido, como filmes...

- Player compatível com CPRM + Cartão flash CPRM (OK)
- Player compatível com CPRM + Cartão flash sem CPRM (?)
- Player sem CPRM + Cartão flash sem CPRM (?)

PIPOC@,

O Toshiba XD-E500 possui tecnologia XDE, e não tecnologia Super Resolution/ Resolution+.

XDE no dvd player da Toshiba:
Solução da Toshiba (chip contendo algoritmos da tecnologia XDE - chip TMU655 no XD-E500) provavelmente pegando o video 1080i/1080p vindo dos chips Zoran (no caso do XD-E500) e aplicando melhorias na imagem dinamicamente onde o sistema considera necessário.

Chip TMU655

http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1281583&postcount=977



There's also a chip I've never seen or heard of before, innocuously-marked 'TMU655 QR87171'. Toshiba confirms this is the VLSI (Very Large Scale Integration) chip responsible for the XDE processing.
http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1352398&postcount=1315



Quanto ao SpursEngine x XDE, com certeza o XDE deve ser muito mais simples e barato para ser implementado, no caso do dvd player XD-E500, o XDE pegando o video vindo dos chips Zoran e dando uma "tunada".
http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1417596&postcount=1608

SRT nas tv´s atuais:
Todo o processo de upscale + a aplicação da tecnologia SRT deve ficar por conta de chips/placas desenvolvidos pela Toshiba ("Metabrain premium").

O SRT deve ser do tipo "single frame"

No caso do sistema CPRM, vai depender de como ele vai ser implementado no sistema da MOD System...

Não sei como vai funcionar no caso do CPRM em cartões de memória, mas no caso de CPRM implementado por exemplo no hardware de gravadores de dvd (de PC e de mesa) + midia DVD compatível com CPRM, no caso de uma transmissão de tv com sistema de proteção contra cópias, a gravação pode por exemplo ser permitida apenas no hard disk de um gravador de dvd de mesa ou em midias DVD-RW (compatível com CPRM) e DVD-RAM (por padrão com CPRM), mas não sendo permitido fazer cópias de cópias...

Salvadori,

Não há dúvida que no futuro FullHD vai ser padrão e o Blu-ray é o formato que está aí hoje para iniciar o caminho rumo a popularização.

Mas como eu comentei, muito material SD ainda está disponível e existem as empresas interessadas em gerar lucro melhorando a qualidade do SD, e lógico, espera-se que essas tecnologias para melhorar a qualidade do material SD também sejam implementadas nos players BD (como no player BD da Oppo por ex), afinal, eles também reproduzem o bom e velho DVD. :legal:

Existem uns 90000 títulos disponívies em DVD.

http://www.dvdnewsroom.com/dvd-to-pass-90000-titles/

Mesmo o BD ficando cada vez + popular e lançando mais e mais títulos no formato, vai ser difícil (quase impossível...) alcançar a marca dos títulos em DVD. O BD lançando 9000 títulos por ano demoraria 10 anos para alcançar a marca...

Então, mesmo o BD ficando cada vez + popular, é interessante que novas tecnologias para melhorar a qualidade de material SD continuem sendo desenvolvidas.

Abaixo, + uma empresa procurando melhora a qualidade do video SD.

Tecnologias recentes visando melhorar a qualidade do upconvert em SD:

-Toshiba SRT & XDE
-NEC SRT
-ZORAN SRT
-HITACHI SRT

Pipoca,
Eu tenho esta ótica,já há algum tempo da extinção de mídias óticas para PC,onde os pcs teriam uma ou duas entradas entrada usb frontais,e tb entradas para cartão SD,embora ainda não sejam mto populares,onde voce ligaria o hd portátil rodando o sistema operacional nele,com todas as suas configurações pessoais,e ligaria o pen drive com os arquivos menores.
Os mini-system de áudio teriam só entrada usb para pen-drive.
Porém após verificar esta evolução do cartões SD,e tb a evolução de dispositivos solid-state,acho tudo será baseado em pen drives HD com o tamanho de uma caixa de cigarros e cartões SD.
Não havia ainda pensado por este lado.
Acho que os dispositivos de armazenamento e leitura de mídia com partes móveis e mecanicas estão com os anos contados para o uso doméstico.
A Pioneer está desenvolvendo uma mídia de 400gb.
Acho que o Blu-ray não será a última mídia existente,mas com ctza é uma das últimas.
Em uns cinco anos estes cartões SDXC estarão totalmente integrados ao mercado,penso eu.
E pensar que até uns 8 anos atrás ainda pensavamos em fitas cassete,fitas DAT e até hoje mta gente usa MiniDV e tudo isso vai acabar...

Todos concordam que o FullHD proporcionado pelo Blu-ray é sensacional, mas para um número considerável de consumidores (por ex com tv´s HDTV menores, como 26", 32", 40"), o "bom o suficiente" (good enough) de um bom upscale em DVD ainda satisfaz.



Some consumers opt for standard DVD players with so-called "upscaling" technology, which play standard DVDs in "full HD" -- 1080p resolution.

"Upscaling works by interpolating the missing information that has been lost when the image was compressed, and sharpening lines," Rob Enderle, principal analyst with the Enderle Group More about Enderle Group, told TechNewsWorld. "The end result is a much sharper image that looks vastly better on an HDTV."

Not all upscaling DVD players are created equal, though, Enderle noted, "and a good upscaler looks vastly better than a cheap one. Historically, Oppo has had the best upscaling DVD players for the money. Toshiba's new XDE player appears equal to the Oppo and has been running at a lower price of late."

From a technical standpoint, neither will match the quality of a Blu-ray, Enderle acknowledged. "If you run a Blu-ray and an good upscaled image side by side, you can clearly see that the Blu-ray is better. But if they aren't side by side -- and I've tested for this -- the good upscaled image is good enough for most, and it has the added benefit of working well with existing DVD libraries. Most [consumers] don't want to rebuy disks they already have."

Though upscaling technology may not be Blu-ray's equal, Jack Gold, principal with J. Gold Associates, also suggested that it's close enough for many consumers.

Blu-ray's technological edge is considerable, maintained Richard Klugman, director of consumer technology research for Majestic Research.

"In terms of the qualitative difference between Blu-ray and upscaled standard DVD ... the difference is obvious when comparing side by side," Klugman told TechNewsWorld. "Standard DVDs are perfectly adequate visually for most people, but Blu-ray is a big step up, especially for video enthusiasts watching on a large-screen HDTV."

5.0 out of 5 stars Great LCD TV, November 29, 2008
By Pakrin (Colorado)

Although this is a brand new LCD without many if any specific public reviews, I went for the Toshiba for a number of reasons including perceived product reliability, feature set and value for money. I actively compared the Sony 40Z4100 and Samsung LNT750 which have both been on the market for several months, are highly rated to the Toshiba 46 (not 42) inch Regza XV545U. At the end of the day the Toshiba had it all even though I read some comments about lower contrast on other models I can tell you that I perceive no real issues even though the unit is installed in a very dark room. I have not calibrated the set but DVDs look great in cinema mode, even VCR tapes are acceptable. The SRT seems to be a real bonus and I will NOT buy a Blu-Ray player as a result.http://www.amazon.com/review/product/B001EK3KKC/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1_cm_cr_acr_txt?_encoding=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

+ duas análises com as Toshiba REGZA americanas 42XV545U e 46XV545U (SRT)

Na opinião da E-GEAR, os melhores resultados do SRT se apresentaram nos ajustes intermediários (Nos 5 níveis de ajuste, provavelmente os melhores resultados devem ter sido obtidos com os ajustes no nível 2 ou 3).


Review: Toshiba 42XV545U
Grant Clauser Jan 13, 2009

http://common.e-gear.com/img/photos/biz/eg/2009/01/xv545-right-lite-on-coy.jpg

With video supplied by a Panasonic BD35 Blu-ray player, the Toshiba TV looked great. Detail was excellent, with no artifacts save for some slight color banding and an over emphasis of green in some scenes. I also believed the contrast was not as pronounced as some TVs I’ve seen recently, most notably the Samsung TOC reviewed in the September issue, yet that model also included a glossy screen cover which can increase contrast yet introduces significant screen glare.

To test out the SRT processes performance I hooked up a standard DVD player (via component cable) and an off-air antenna. I found the lowest SRT setting tended to soften the picture a bit, which takes out some of the edge artifacts but also reduces sharpness. At the highest setting, SRT seemed to add too much of an artificial sharpness to the picture. The middle mode had the greatest impact and would satisfy most owners.
http://www.e-gear.com/article/review-toshibas-42xv545u-401901_1.html

Na opinião da PC Magazine, o SRT não foi tão bem com video SD. (Mas que ajustes SRT será que eles utilizaram? 4 Modos (Auto, Mode 1 (para transmissões de tv SD), Mode 2 (para video de DVD), Mode 3 (para transmissões de tv HD (720p)) com 5 níveis de ajuste para cada modo...)


Toshiba Regza 46XV545U
REVIEW DATE:01.15.09

by Robert Heron

http://common.ziffdavisinternet.com/util_get_image/19/0,1425,sz=1&i=196497,00.jpg

Compared with plasma TVs, LCDs excel at producing a bright, high-resolution picture but fall short when maintaining accurate color representation in particularly bright or dark scenes or at wide viewing angles. The 46-inch Toshiba Regza 46XV545U ($2,199.99 list) features a bright picture and is able to display inky-dark black results in superb color contrast. It also produces one of the most detailed HD pictures I've ever seen. I just wish the set were better at handling standard-definition video.

The 46XV545U integrates Super Resolution Technology, a feature that Toshiba claims will improve the video upconversion quality of 480i/p and 720p video sources when they are converted for display on the set's 1080p-resolution screen. My selection of classic DVD movies revealed average-to-good picture detail, but there were jagged-edge artifacts on many images. The waving flag in the HQV Benchmark DVD was also rife with jaggies, although the overall scene detail wasn't terribly poor.

HD satellite programming and Blu-ray movies showed the most detailed images I've ever seen on any LCD TV. And I was able to offset some of the color oversaturation problems by switching to the set's Movie preset, which tamed the oversaturated reds that made some faces too colorful. I also found that the set's 120-Hz display technology didn't introduce any obvious interpolation artifacts when displaying complex, detailed scenes.

The Toshiba has no direct comparison against a three-meter-wide screen with a beamer FullHD-intentioned, but a living standard, ie 32" to 40" TV HDready in three to four meters Sehabstand. And here is the effect Whow of Blu-ray suddenly disappeared, and even the experts contend that the XDE image for at least equivalent. HD requires just huge pictures and good eyes. Anyway, the XD-E 500 as a whole provides a good DVD player with solid technique and high functionality.

Conclusion

A perfect DVD can never be a perfect detail resolution Blu-ray reach. That has always been determined and it is not negotiable. That, however, the maximum HD resolution is not on any screen from any distance is clearly differentiated, it has also made no secret. Toshiba XDE does not increase with the fundamental resolution of the DVD, but perfected the sharpness impression very smart. Edges are harder, pale color films, or gloomy elements get more drawing. The post is the best class and would actually standard in many living rooms new life into the DVD archive.

About the other hand, you are looking for an inexpensive, but good player that will be combined with a smaller TV, and who can lift your existing DVD collection to new heights, the Toshiba player be the best. It does a better job than any player we've tested, and at its best gives the fact a taste of true HD. More we can not actually require!

+ Uma análise com a Toshiba REGZA americana 42XV545U (SRT)


Toshiba Regza Cinema Series HD 42XV545U LCD HDTV Reviewed

By: Andrew Robinson
January 12, 2009

http://www.hometheaterreview.com/images/Toshiba_42_LCD.gif

The Regza is a full 1080p display and, with the help of Toshiba's own SRT (Super Resolution Technology) Technology, it will scale all signals to 1080p. SRT is Toshiba's proprietary upconversion technology that upconverts and enhances the signal to bring legacy sources and the images they produce to near HD-quality levels. The Regza also utilizes Toshiba's ClearFrame 120Hz Anti-Blur Technology, which, like most 120Hz displays, does its best to eliminate motion blur on images by creating new frames from the digital data and inserting said frames in between the normally-produced frames. The 120Hz argument has its pros and cons and every manufacturer does it a bit differently, with varying degrees of success, at least to this reviewer, but the Regza may be the closest to ideal. The Regza is a 10-bit LCD design with deep color and x.v. color capabilities. It also has a 24 fps Cinema Mode, as well as numerous theater wide modes and image presets. One notable image preset is AutoView, which uses an internal light sensor to gauge ambient light conditions and tailor the viewing experience to the room at the moment for the best possible image.

Performance

I kicked things off with a little AppleTV viewing, beginning with the digital download of The Dark Knight (Warner Home Video), with the AppleTV's internal scaling set to auto. Since I purchased The Dark Knight, the resolution was actually a touch less than DVD, landing it squarely in SD land with a fair amount of compression. Hell, it's a two-and-a-half-hour movie - that's less than two GB, but you wouldn't know it through the Regza. Was it HD quality? No, but had I not known where the source material came from, I'd swear I was watching a very well-played DVD. I don't believe DVD can look like HD, but DVD can look very very bad. Through the Regza, The Dark Knight was mighty impressive. Color accuracy and saturation was very strong and extremely natural and detailed. Black level was respectable, again on par with good DVD playback, but nowhere near as deep, rich or detailed as HD. What was most striking was how smooth and almost artifact-free the presentation was. Jaggies were kept to a minimum and noise levels in all but the darkest regions of the image were not noticeable from the proper viewing distance. Remember, the Regza was handling all the upscaling and processing of the image, which is something I seldom promote, as there are third-party scalers and chips that usually do a much better job than your TV's internal chips, yet I was impressed by the Regza. Edge fidelity was good and image dimension and depth were respectable, but these were the areas where the source material showed its cards as being clearly not HD and perhaps a touch below even DVD.

Conclusion
At just under $1,700 retail, the 42-inch Regza Cinema Series HD LCD TV isn't the cheapest ticket to the show, but it will get you closer to the stage than almost anything in its price range today. If you're tastes sway a bit like mine, it'll get you pit tickets, for it is one hell of a good LCD display. It's refreshing to see an LCD TV that doesn't try to bowl you over with brightness and saturation, instead opting for accuracy, naturalness and a real, honest to God cinema experience. While Toshiba's claims of making all things appear HD are a bit of an overstatement, it's clear to see in the Regza why they were the leader in the HD game while others were still trying to get their acts together. Don't let the failure of HD DVD keep you away from Toshiba and the stunning Regza line of LCD TVs, for they're among the very best there are available. I would recommend this set to anyone looking for a killer LCD.

Pessoal,

O meu XD-E500 chegou, utilizei muito pouco mas posso falar alguma coisa e chegar a fazer comparações com o PS3 e Denon 1940 depois de testá-lo mais um pouco.

Imagem muito boa, com o XDE desligado achei bem parecida com a imagem do PS3, e ligado dá prá notar uma melhora considerável nos detalhes.:legal:

Bom nível de detalhes em cenas escuras, penumbras...

Não gostei da combinação XDE/filmes granulados, que tende destacar um pouco a granulação, nesses casos prefiro desligar o XDE.

O display não mostra o tempo, somente capítulos.

Não existe aquelas aberturas(em baixo relevo) na bandeja para ajudar a pegar o disco, ou seja, você só consegue pegar o disco enfiando o dedo nele e puxando...:que:

O aparelho não consegue lidar bem com imagens 4:3 em 1080p, o formato correto só é conseguido nos 480p, sem upscaling...:Pirou:

Só para constar, minha tv é a Panasonic TH-42PY85LB

Até mais.

Fui este final de semana na casa do meu amigo que comprou o OPPO, e vi ele ligado em uma VIERA igual a minha e sinseramente, não vi nada de difrente do meu PHILIPS 5965K, upscaling a mesma coisa, qualidade de imagem igual, falava-se tanto aqui no site da superioridade de players como o OPPO etc, acho que no fundo é só nome mesmo ( GRIFE ), eu não me impressionei nem um pouco!

Depois disso não estou mais tão entusiamado com esse XD E500, quero ve-lo funcionando no dia que tiver em alguma loja, se for a mesma coisa que o tal OPPO, tchau, prefiro economizar e ficar com meu PHLIPZINHO mesmo, Dvdplayer por Dvdplayer eu fico com o meu mesmo, só troco se for uma coisa muito melhor mesmo, que realmente de um ganho e não só propaganda! Por isso agora vou usar o método SÃO TOMÉ mais que nunca, só vendo um funcionando para crer!

SONECA vc que já está com o XD E500 , teste alguns filmes nele e em outro player upscaling e faça um review ai pra gente sobre o que vc achou se tem difrença ou não, ok!:legal:

Marcos eu vi o review e mais uma vez parabéns!:aplauso:

Vou repetir aqui o comentário que postei lá!

Caro MARCOS!:legal:

Primeiro meus parabéns pelo pioneirismo de ter adquirido o XD E500

Segundo parabéns pelo exelente review, muito bem detalhado e documentado, não deixa dúvidas que realmente trata-se de um exelente Dvdplayer, com uma qualidade de reprodução exelente acima da média.

Nota-se tranquilamente a superioridade do upscaling deste aparelho comparado aos existentes no mercado na primeira foto da JESSICA ALBA principalmente os fios do cabelo e as sombrancelhas, o realce é indiscutivel. Na foto do RATATOUI nota-se o ganho também na toalha os detalhes do xadrez são bem visiveis e na casca do pão!

Não havia nem notado que as duas fotos do Cassino Royale era BD e DVD se não lesse o comentário do MURILO sobre o colar diria que as duas eram iguais.

Com relação ao PS3 não notei difrença talvez como vc disse a imagem em movimento entregue a difrença, achei o upscaling do PS3 bom também.

Em suma tratando se de um Dvdplayer realmente vale a pena pelo preço ele entrega uma qualidade substansial, coisa que não vi no OPPO que um amigo comprou, agora só espero que a TOSHIBA traga este aparelho para o Brasil para que possa ver ao vivo e a cores, se for isso mesmo que está em suas fotos vou pegar um prá mim, já que possuo muitos DVDS e não penso em dispensá-los, muito pelo contrario sempre que posso compro mais algum!;)

Valeu demorou mas vc arrebentou!:aplauso::rever1::aplauso:

Pipoca,

Ainda que concordando com o seu direito de achar oque quiser, e de confiar nas próprias impressões mais doque na opinião de terceiros, não posso deixar de marcar aqui meu desacordo com suas conclusões quanto ao Oppo, XDE-500 e o philipszinho.
As afirmações da qualidade exemplar do Oppo, que circulam no forum, não são baseadas na grife. Gente como o Murilo, eu, e dezenas de outros entusiastas espalhados pelo mundo que estão acostumados a testar e comparar players de DVD já o compararam e concluiram que ele é sim um dos melhores, senão o melhor player de DVD no mercado no quesito de qualidade de imagem, incluindo todos aqueles aspectos relevantes, mas que nem sempre notamos no dia a dia. Se o preço não vale a diferença, essa é uma equação que cada um deve resolver com suas próprias variáveis e prioridades. Mas eu garanto que o philips não chega perto do Oppo...

Ok ALAN registrado!:legal:

Respeito muito a sua opinião,a do Murilo e dos especialistas que testam aparelhos e mais aparelhos pelo mundo,porém....isso não muda em nada o que eu vi e achei ( Para meu gosto pessoal ), sinto muito!:legal:

Talvez se um dia eu ver outro modelo da OPPO quem sabe? Mas como disse cada um tem sua opinião e eu a minha pelo que vi não me convenceu, agora respeito a opinião de todos! Não sou especialista em nada, Não estou dizendo para ninguém comprar ou coisa do tipo,foi apenas a opinião de um usuario que não se empolgou com o que viu, só isso! Quem acha o contrário ÓTIMO tem mais que comprar, curtir o aparelho e ser feliz!:aplauso:

Com relação ao XD E500 nem tenho o que falar porque nem vi funcionando, pelas fotos postadas dos amigos, parece ser um ótimo player onde o upscaling faz a difrença dos demais, veja bem parece, não posso afirmar porque repito não vi funcionando.

Com relação ao PHILIPS 5965k, apesar de ser um dvdplayer modesto, dentro do UPSCALING 720p,1080i que ele faz até que faz bem !

Agora sinseramente talvez tudo isso nem valha mais a pena para mim ficar comparando A com B, pois se os players de Blu Ray realmente baixarem bem este ano, começarem a fabricar discos aqui no segundo semestre e eu ver que finalmente a coisa vai andar, ai já invisto logo em BDPLAYER,uma vez que o mesmo lê ambos os formatos!

É isso ai!:legal:

É pelo preço do XDE aqui no Brasil cerca de 800 reais acho que não compensa mais este DVD player pois o BD já se compra por 999 reais em 12x.

Nos States está abaixo de 200 doletas aproximando-se de 100 a 150 doletas!!

Acho que agora é a vez do BD pois logo aqui chegarão em abundancia os chineses sendo que o BD tambem toca DVD!!

Foi o que aconteceu comigo. Ja estava decidido a compar o XDE, mas ao fazer as contas, vi que ele sairia aqui quase 800,00, e ai acabei comprando um BD Samsung pelo mesmo preço, nacional, que le DVD R-4 e BD.
Realmente, se o XDE nao for vendido aqui oficialmente pela Semp, vai ficar inviavel comprar um la fora.

Caros fjmr e André,

Realmente com o preço que estão cobrando aqui não compensa mesmo. Custando US$80,00 (EUA) e R$ 800,00 (BR) :aiai: não tem nem o que pensar. Como vocês já disseram, com mais um pouco se compra um BD player, que com certeza faz upscale de DVD.

Pelo visto as opções para adquirir um XD-E500 são: ou a Toshiba traz o mesmo para cá, ou se aproveita uma viagem ao exterior.

Pois é,

E um PS2 que nos Estados Unidos deve poder ser encontrado na faixa de US$100 aqui no Brasil é vendido por +/-R$400...

R$350 no XD-E500 estaria de bom tamanho para o mercado paralelo...

Toshiba 42ZV555D review

Toshiba says its Resolution+ system brings HD quality to standard-def images
Last reviewed: January 19th

http://mos.techradar.com//Review%20images/Home%20Cinema%20Choice/HCC%20165/HCC165.tosh.01-218-85.jpg
Toshiba's clever upscaling tech

The initial temptation is to be sceptical. After all, any attempt to upscale an SD image involves manufacturing picture data which is not present in the original; there's no 'hidden' information to be obtained. So how can the Toshiba do a convincing job?

The first hint of what Resolution+ might be capable of came with Toshiba's XDE (eXtended Detail Enhancement) DVD players; pushed as a way to get the best out of DVD (though Toshiba, still smarting from the demise of its HD DVD format, was reluctant to describe them as an alternative to Blu-ray), the XDE players did indeed do a demonstrably fine job of enhancing DVD pictures; a simple side-by-side comparison of the picture from the XDE and the previous generation of disc-spinner convinced me of this at the launch.

The question, then, is whether Resolution+ can work similar magic when built into a TV, and dealing with SD broadcasts as well as DVD.

Resolution+ can be switched on or off, and can be adjusted in level from 1 to 5. At 1 to 3, I found the effect very subtle; at 4, it's quite obvious, and at 5 it can be too much.

With a fairly solid picture from DVD or a strong SD TV broadcast, the tech does indeed add perceived detail; pictures seem sharper without the addition of unsightly ringing, and there is an impression of enhanced depth and contrast. Text becomes easier to read and background detail becomes more obvious.

But with a grainy image, Resolution+ simply enhances the grain, so poor analogue TV signals cannot be enhanced. I also noticed that on a 4:3 picture, Resolution+ adds a visible line to each side of the picture, which is disconcerting.

So though I wouldn't entertain for a second any suggestion that Resolution+ upgrades SD material to genuine HD, I think it's a valuable tool. Some Freeview pictures I watched looked as impressive as anything I have seen on a set of this price.

Eu não sei mas acho que agora a coisa está complicando para estes opcionais de melhora de imagem, depois que a TEC TOY lançou um Blu Ray player a 900 paus, fica dificil comprar um XD E500 por exemplo que no ML tá 750 paus, olha a difrença é muito pouca, um por outro já vale investir no TEC TOY.

Acho que a grande mancada dos caras é justamente essa eles NEC,TOSHIBA e demais SONY não porque eles não são besta de prejudicar o BD, mas estas outras empresas que possuem CHIPS de melhora de imagem para upscaling, já deveriam ter seus players DVD lançados no mercado e como o ROBERTO disse a pelo menos 350 ou 400 reais, que já estaria de bom tamanho, agora os caras estão demorando muito para fazer isso, na hora que cair na real os players BD já vão estar bem mais baratos os filmes já vão estar em muitas locadoras, ou seja não vai mais compensar comprar um aparelho destes.

É o que eu sempre digo hoje em dia demorou dançou! E o TEC TOY é só o primeiro em breve começa a chegar os MAGNOVOX,BROSSONIC,BRITÂNIA,CCE da vida ai já era ai começa a virar festa!

Tudo bem eu concordo também que seria muito legal esse XD E500, principalmente pelo exelente upscaling que ele faz mostrado nas fotos dos amigos Soneca e Marcos, fiquei impressionado com a qualidade na comparação do BD CASSINO ROYALE com o DVD CASSINO ROYALE, do upscaling feito no desenho RATATOUI, para quem tem um grande material em DVD e eu também tenho muitos e continuo comprando, é sim não tenha dúvidas uma ótima opção e por um custo exelente.

O ponto que eu quero chegar é que se os caras demorarem muito principalmente a TOSHIBA para colocar no mercado nacional a um preço de DVDPLAYER ai vai ficar dificil pois corre o risco de quando pensar em comercialzar os BDS já estejam tão mais em conta que não valera mais a pena, talvez ATÉ LÁ já tenham até BDPLAYERS com algum upscaling como o XD E500 e ai??

Não entendo o seguinte o XD E500 é um DVDPLAYER a TOSHIBA já possue dvdplayers no Brasil, por que então já não começaram a distribuir oficialmente aqui, não vejo motivo para tanta demora??? Resumindo é um DVDPLAYER, se fosse um outro equipamento de um formato difrente eu até entenderia de não ter oficialmente aqui no pais, mas dvdplayer aqui é a coisa que mais tem, era só começar a colocar aqui para vender e pronto!

Nesta análise da Trusted Reviews com a Toshiba 42ZV555D, eles comentam sobre o SRT com video SD de boa qualidade e com video SD de qualidade inferior.

No caso por exemplo da utilização de DVD´s com imagem de alta qualidade, para os níveis de ajuste existentes no Resolution+ (OFF e ON com 5 níveis, de 1 a 5), eles comentam que até podem ser utilizados valores maiores sem a ocorrência de efeitos indesejados na imagem. No caso de imagens SD com qualidade inferior, como por exemplo em transmissões de tv, valores inferiores (1 ou 2) são recomendados. Na análise eles comentam que mesmo com fontes com qualidade de video ruim, eles preferiram não desligar os ajustes SRT, pois segundo eles, mesmo os ajustes mínimos (1 ou 2) trazem resultados positivos se comparado ao video original, com o SRT desligado.

Eles deixam claro que apesar do super resolution melhorar muito a qualidade de visualização de video SD na tv LCD, não tem comparação com fonte de alta definição nativa.

É a questão de procurar melhorar o video da água para o suco de uva, e não da água para o vinho...



http://img7.imageshack.us/img7/166/42zv555dfv9.jpg

Unquestionably, the most striking benefit of the Resolution+ system is how much extra sharpness it introduces to standard definition fare. Edges seem crisper, faces and surfaces look more textured, and the picture generally looks much more three-dimensional - all of which immediately elevates the 42ZV555D's standard definition pictures to a whole new level versus those of previous Toshiba models.

It's also impressive to note that this obvious and very welcome extra sharpness to standard definition images is achieved without the Resolution+ engine throwing up seemingly any nasty processing glitches such as flickering, shimmering edges, weird halos around moving objects or smearing. This freedom from negative processing side effects reveals the potency of the Resolution+ engine, proving it able to deliver vast amounts of processing calculations ‘on the hoof' without breaking down - even during fast action sequences.

Also impressive about the Resolution+ engine is the way it manages to add sharpness to the picture without introducing grain or jaggedness over curved and diagonal lines. Basically, when all's said and done, the difference between standard def on this TV and Toshiba's previous models is like night and day. With the 42ZV555D between ‘day', of course!

The only problem with the Resolution+ system is that, as Danny noted too, it's not as able as we'd like it to be when it comes to distinguishing between video noise and ‘proper' picture information in a standard def source.

This isn't a great problem when a standard def source is of a good quality in the first place - a high-quality DVD, for instance. But the Resolution+ system can definitely exaggerate the MPEG block and mosquito noise found in many digital broadcasts. Because of this, while we happily cranked the Resolution+ level up to four or even the maximum five with DVDs, we had to tweak it down to 2 or even 1 with some digital TV channels. Still, even at its lowest setting it makes a difference for the better, and I never found myself inclined to turn it off completely, even with the most woefully ropey of sources.

It's worth adding, here, that kicking the set's MPEG noise reduction option up to medium, from the ‘off' or ‘low' setting I'd usually recommend, can reduce the extent to which Resolution+ exaggerates MPEG noise. But there's a price to pay for this in the shape of much waxier looking skin tones and a generally rather forced look to the picture. Maybe a more satisfying result could be obtained if Tosh tried to integrate the NR functionality into the Resolution+ technology next time, rather than leaving them separate?

I guess I should also take issue with the claims on Toshiba's website that Resolution+ makes standard definition pictures look ‘near HD'. This simply is not the case at all. For while Resolution+ certainly makes standard definition pictures look higher in definition than they would otherwise, they're still no match for a true HD source.

Verdict

The 42ZV555D underlines Danny's finding that Resolution+ is a hugely worthwhile technology that genuinely boosts Toshiba's standard definition LCD picture quality to a level up there with the very best of the rest. It's just a pity that on this 42in ZV555 incarnation, at least, the Resolution+ advances haven't been accompanied by similarly large strides forward when it comes to black levels.

Fuzzy video, images sharpened by NEC chip

Cliff Roth
Video Imaging DesignLine
(02/04/2009 4:50 PM EST)

KAWASAKI, Japan, SANTA CLARA, Calif., and DUESSELDORF, Germany - NEC Electronics introduced a new application-specific standard product (ASSP) to address the dramatic divergence between the image resolution of older and less capable devices and the high resolution of today's display systems. Based on NEC's single-frame super-resolution technology, the small, low-power ASSP (part number uPD9245GJ) reduces the blurring that occurs when low-resolution images are expanded and displayed in high-resolution. The ASSP sharpens out-of-focus images, smoothes rough edges and refines contours by analyzing and processing information contained in one frame of data in real time. Using standard video interfaces for data input and output, designers can integrate the ASSP into a wide variety of consumer, industrial, medical and automotive devices that handle images and video.

The technology is also available as an intellectual property (IP) core that can be embedded into ASICs or other ASSP products, such as NEC Electronics' Enhanced Multimedia Architecture (EMMA) ASSP for digital AV devices. NEC Electronics plans to continue developing next-generation super-resolution ASSPs with increased operating frequency and expanded video output size, and by 2010, the company expects to receive orders totaling more than US$110 million for super-resolution products.

The rapid development of today's high-performance digital AV devices -- from computers, digital cameras and mobile phones to DVD recorders and high-definition televisions -- has left consumers with the challenge of how to view low-resolution images on their new high-definition electronic products. The new NEC Electronics ASSP successfully corrects the difference between yesterday's resolution and today's. Now, clearer images can be achieved quickly, easily and inexpensively. NEC Electronics says they expect this new technology to help "digitize" consumers' lives, holding onto valuable memories previously recorded with lower-resolution technologies.

Pricing, availability and evaluation board

Samples of NEC Electronics' uPD9245GJ ASSP are available now with pricing beginning under US$10 for more than 1,000 pieces and US$30 in lower volumes. Super-resolution IP cores are also available for NEC Electronics' cell-based ASIC (CB-90 and CB-12) and gate array (CMOS-12M) libraries.

NEC Electronics also has developed an evaluation board to support the uPD9245GJ ASSP. The small, four- by two-inch board includes an evaluation version of the ASSP running alongside an NEC Electronics 78K0/KE2 microcontroller, a DVI-D video interface and an I2C slave interface and USB connector.

SanDisk Announces "World's First" High Performance 4-Bits-Per-Cell (X4) Flash Memory Technology
Feb 11, 2009 15:18
Nikkei Electronics Asia

http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20090211/165488/SanDisk.jpg

SanDisk Corp announced that it will begin mass-production of what it claims is the world's first high performance 4-bits-per-cell (X4) Flash memory, building on its leadership in multi-level cell (MLC) technology. The 64Gb X4 Flash memory chip on 43nm technology is co-developed with Toshiba Corp, which cooperates in the development and manufacturing of advanced Flash memory.

Using 43nm process technology, this breakthrough enables 64Gb memory in a single die – said to be the highest capacity in the industry and suitable for the most demanding storage applications.

Sandisk said it has also produced an advanced X4 controller, which is necessary to effectively manage the complexities and performance requirements of X4 memory. The X4 memory chip combines with the X4 controller chip in a multi-chip package (MCP) to provide a complete, integrated and low-cost storage solution.

The 43nm 64Gb X4 chip is said to offer the highest capacity and highest density Flash memory die in the world to enter production this year, boasting a 7.8MB/sec memory write performance that is comparable with current MLC technologies. SanDisk's All-Bit-Line (ABL) architecture as well as the three-step programming (TSP) and sequential sense concept (SSC) serve as key enablers to X4's impressive performance.

The X4 controller utilizes a first-of-its-kind error correcting code (ECC) scheme specifically developed for use in storage systems, and tailored to support the 16 levels of distribution needed for 4-bits-per-cell.


http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20090211/165488/



SANDISK ANNOUNCES WORLD’S FIRST HIGH PERFORMANCE 4-BITS-PER-CELL (X4) FLASH MEMORY TECHNOLOGY

Mais uma análise com a Toshiba 42ZV555 européia com Resolution+

Toshiba 42ZV555
When bad standard def goes good

+Plenty of picture features for the money / Resolution+ works well / Generally good HD pictures
No multimedia connectivity / Black levels not the best / Video noise can be exaggerated / Limited viewing angle

-Toshiba’s previous generation of LCD TVs had a problem. For while they were generally decent enough with high definition, they struggled to handle standard definition as convincingly as many rivals.

Cue Resolution+: a powerful new image processing system from Toshiba designed to upscale standard definition to the high resolutions demanded by today’s HD screens much more effectively than anything Toshiba – or potentially any other brand – has managed before.

Easy cell

Resolution+ is built around technology taken from Toshiba’s highly regarded PC Cell Processors, and so should hopefully prove unusually well equipped to handle the real-time pixel and frame interpolation calculations necessary to convert standard def to HD.

Before we find out if this is actually the case, though, we’ve got some more basic stuff to cover. Starting with the TV’s looks, which while not exactly groundbreaking are at least pretty nice, mostly thanks to the slenderness of the bezel and the illuminated Toshiba logo.

The set’s connectivity, on the other hand, is slightly disappointing. For it only provides three HDMIs where we might have expected a premium set to have four, and there are no multimedia sockets like USB or Ethernet jacks.

Tinkerer's paradise

Happily the set gets back on track with its features. For as well as the all-important Resolution+ system, the 42ZV555 has 100Hz processing to improve motion, Toshiba’s Active Vision LCD processing to boost colours, contrast, and sharpness, and a healthy set of user adjustments including a comprehensive colour management system.

So to the moment of truth. Does Resolution+ really make a difference? And the short answer is, yes, it does!

Particularly impressive is how much sharper it helps standard definition pictures look versus Toshiba’s previous LCD offerings. More importantly, standard def pictures also look sharper than on the vast majority of rival brands’ TVs.

We’re not talking about levels of clarity and definition to rival a true HD signal, and there’s a tendency for the processing to sharpen any noise that might be in a source as well as the ‘proper’ picture information. But it’s still a very impressive effort overall.

Not that the 42ZV555 is only interested in standard definition, mind you. It does very nicely with true HD sources too, leaving them looking sharp, vibrant and three-dimensional.

Grey matter

The sad thing about the 42ZV555 is that having nailed Toshiba’s old standard def problems, it falls prey to another common LCD shortcoming: indifferent black level response. Dark scenes look rather greyed over, and a little short of shadow detail versus the best the LCD and plasma worlds have to offer.

It doesn’t help, either, that the picture loses contrast quite dramatically if you have to watch it from much of an angle.

At which point we should bring the 42ZV555’s price in to play. For £800 really isn’t dear for a 42in TV with 100Hz and upscaling of the quality found in the 42ZV555.

So although its black levels stop it being anything like a TV classic, it’s still well worth considering if you mostly watch standard def and don’t have wads of cash burning a hole in your pocket.

Fujitsu to Hand Off HDD Biz to Toshiba
Feb 18, 2009 18:52
Mami Akasaka, Tech-On!

http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20090218/165864/thumb_230_fujitsuhdd.jpg

Fujitsu Ltd and Toshiba Corp reached a basic agreement for Toshiba's acquisition of HDD business from Fujitsu Feb 17, 2009. They are planning to complete the business transfer in the April-June 2009 quarter.

Toshiba will take over Fujitsu's HDD business excluding the HDD head and media businesses. Toshiba will acquire the HDD design, development, manufacturing and marketing functions that Fujitsu owns inside and outside Japan.

The HDD business will be transferred to a new company in which Toshiba's and Fujitsu's capital ratios will be initially 80 and 20%, respectively. And Toshiba plans to make the company its wholly-owned subsidiary after a certain period of time.

Through this acquisition, Toshiba aims to solidify its position as the largest manufacturer in the market for 2.5-inch and smaller HDDs and to expand its share of the market for HDDs targeting enterprises, where Fujitsu has enjoyed a large share.

Toshiba set a goal to gain a global HDD market share of 20% in 2015. Also, the company will advance the development of SSDs for servers, fusing Toshiba's NAND flash memory technology and Fujitsu's technology for enterprise HDDs.

HDTV Toshiba 42ZV555DB (Resolution+) review:

Nesta análise eles comentam que a aplicação do Resolution+ da Toshiba (super resolution) em material SD gera uma imagem que não se compara a HD nativo, mas o resultado é bom o suficiente. (é aquela questão de não querer transformar água em vinho, mas em suco de uva...)



http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/1129/42zv555db.jpg

Most of us are happy with the pristine High Definition performance of our flat panel TV's, but the Standard Definition abilities of those same screens often leaves us disappointed. Toshiba's Resolution+ technology claims to have resolved the problem by upscaling SD material to HD quality. Resolution + makes its UK debut on Toshiba's 42ZV555DB.

Performance

Having been rather sceptical on hearing Toshiba's claims for its Resolution+ system it came as a pleasant surprise that the technology does actually work. The previous statement needs qualifying however in that Resolution+ does not really get anywhere near to reaching High Definition quality.

What Resolution+ does achieve is a noticeable improvement in the sharpness of even poor quality SD sources. Whats more, this sharpness is achieved without introducing any undesirable artefacts such as jaggedness. Even more impressive is the fact that the 42ZV555DB retains the improvements afforded by Resolution+ with fast on screen action with very little trace of smearing.

Toshiba's upscaling technology has one Achilles heal however. When any kind of graininess is present within an SD source (ie low quality analogue) Resolution+ tries to enhance it along with the rest of the picture; which can and often does present a horribly over processed outcome.

While Resolution+ has elevated the Toshiba into the leading pack of LCD TV's whose abilities with SD material are amongst the best, the same can't be said for its black level ability. There is no hint of greyness to the screen but there is no subtle graduation of greyscale detail that comes with the better plasma and LCD screens.

The 42ZV555 ups the ante again however with a stunning High Definition performance. The combination of a Full HD screen and Toshiba's picture processing wizardry makes for one of the most involving HD pictures we have seen. The depth clarity and detail that the screen is able to reproduce is at times transfixing.

Demonstrating the 42ZV555DB's all round competence colours are vivid without becoming over saturated. Subtle areas such as flesh tones are never anything less than wholly realistic.

Conclusion

Toshiba's 42ZV555DB has demonstrated a technology which successfully enhances a Standard Definition source. The result is not comparable with HD but good enough (with a more than competent performance in all areas) to make this screen a serious contender.

Toshiba 52XV545U LCD HDTV
By Scott Wilkinson • March, 2009

Price: $2,600 At A Glance: Excellent detail, blacks, shadow detail • SRT sharpens DVD material surprisingly well • Mediocre video processing • Poor onboard audio quality

Upscale Performance

With the format war behind it, Toshiba is concentrating on improving the look of standard-definition content on high-def displays. A new upconversion-enhancement technology called Super Resolution Technology (SRT) is now available in some of Toshiba’s latest LCD HDTVs, including the top-of-the-line Cinema Series. The largest of this series is the 52-inch 52XV545U reviewed here, and 46- and 42-inch versions also available.

http://www.hometheatermag.com/images/archivesart/309tosh.1.jpg

When I turned SRT on, I discovered that it has three modes, each with a five-step Level setting. According to the manual, Mode 1 is intended for low-quality, standard-def content with lots of noise, Mode 2 is for DVD content, and Mode 3 is for 720p broadcast content. There’s also an Auto mode that automatically adjusts SRT according to the input signal.

As I played with these settings, the contrast seemed to increase when I went from Mode 1 to 2 to 3. The Level setting did the same thing at higher values. High Level values also introduced obvious edge enhancement and noise. In addition, Level 3 caused banding in the vertical high-frequency black-and-white burst, while the other Level settings did not. Mode 2 at Level 2 seemed to sharpen the bursts the most without adding undue edge enhancement.

Real-World Performance

With Mission: Impossible III on HD DVD at 1080i, there was moderate moiré in the pan across the staircase. Shadow detail in the catacombs was quite good, but the black tuxedos in the party scene looked a bit flat. Black level was excellent—I could easily ignore the letterbox bars.

Frame interpolation can cause shimmering in a couple of spots at the beginning of the Star Wars: Episode—Return of the Jedi VI DVD, but not on the 52XV545U. However, SRT did introduce a bit of shimmering in the fine vertical stripes on the side of the landing bay as Darth Vader’s shuttle approaches. SRT also sharpened the image considerably, even at a Level setting of 2. I decided I could live with a few artifacts for the sake of a sharper DVD picture.

Staying with DVD, the player’s high SRT settings caused obvious edge enhancement on Topsy-Turvy, but Mode 2 Level 2 minimized it while it clearly sharpened the image. Shadow detail wasn’t bad in the carriage on the way to the opera. Color was also surprisingly good, from the over-the-top sets and costumes to the more subdued real-world colors. However, the green wallpaper in Sullivan’s bedroom was a bit too green.

Conclusion

I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Toshiba 52XV545U’s SRT works quite well at lower settings, although higher settings introduce too much edge enhancement and noise. Detail is excellent for an LCD, as are blacks and shadow detail. If you watch a lot of SD content and you don’t mind the color inaccuracies I mentioned here, the 52XV545U is a respectable set.

The Bad

* Lower contrast ratio than competing Samsung A650/A750/A850 lines.
* Speakers aren’t that great

Summary

The Toshiba XV545U’s are the best HDTV’s of 2009 for the average HDTV buyer - in fact, this is the HDTV that I bought for myself.

I know Toshiba isn’t the brand that comes to mind when you think HDTV, but I’m telling you, Toshiba put together a winner with their XV545U line.

After months of (re)searching for the best HDTV (I could afford) it came down to the Toshiba 52XV545U and the Samsung LN52A650. I almost pulled the trigger on the Samsung LN52A650, but the red touch-of-color stopped me (i’m just not a fan of the red trim, but to each his own). The Toshiba 52XV545U won me over for the following reasons:

1. Excellent picture quality. The 52″ 52XV545U actually uses a Samsung LCD panel that is known for excellent contrast ratio and response time. The 52XV545U uses WCG CCFL lighting which is best LCD back-lighting outside of LED (and you’ll pay out the nose for an LED LCD).
2. It sports a very simple, thin elegant black and grey trim, will look great in any room.
3. Its a 1080p HDTV which gives me the highest resolution for HDTVs. Great for hooking a computer up to it and, of course, Blu-ray playback.
4. Its a 120Hz HDTV that support 5:5 pulldown / 24P for smoother Blu-ray playback
5. Its a LCD HDTV, so it handles being used as a computer monitor very well (much better than Plasmas). I have it hooked up to my HTPC (Home Theatre PC) which streams most of the video I watch. Also, LCD’s maintain their picture quality better than Plasmas in rooms with lots of light like my living room.
6. SRT Upconversion - SRT upconversion is a special technology Toshiba developed that makes lower resolution video (like non-HD cable, DVDs, etc) appear sharper. SRT works OK, but it unfortunately doesn’t bring non-HD video anywhere near HD quality.
7. The price - I was able to pick up the 52″ model (52XV545U) for $2,000 shipped.

That being said, the Samsung LNA650 line is a very strong contender for the #1 spot. If you don’t mind (or even like) the red touch-of-color trim, I highly recommend checking the LNA650 out. If it wasn’t for the red trim I would have the Samsung LN52A650 sitting in my living room right now.

Note: The 42″ 42XV545U uses a LCD panel made by LG/Philips where as a the 46″ 46XV545U and 52″ 52XV545U use LCD panels made by Samsung; the Samsung LCD panels have slightly better contrast and response time.

Two hundred of the Toshiba Gigashot cameras were used to film the advert which developed an extension of the bullet-time technique made famous by the Matrix Films.

The innovative technique created ‘a moving snapshot of time’ which has attracted over half a million views on YouTube so far as well as being listed the fifth best advert of 2008 by Campaign magazine.

The campaign supports Toshiba’s upscaling technology which features in certain Qosmio laptops, the XD-E500 DVD player and ZV Series television. Upscaling technology allows users to watch standard definition sources at near high definition quality.

The TimeSculpture advert was first shown in the UK in November 2008 and is now running for a second time until the end of March 2009. For more details and to view the advert, please visit – www.toshiba.co.uk/upscaling (http://www.toshiba.co.uk/upscaling).

Será que está chegando a hora da Toshiba lançar um player Blu-ray com tecnologia XDE para upscale em DVD?...(e também um DVD player XDE de segunda geração (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1476410&postcount=1742) por uns 60 dólares...)

The Blu-ray vs. DVD View-Off
By Eric A. Taub

In a move worthy of one former presidential candidate, Toshiba was in favor of high-definition DVDs before it was against them.

Early last year, Toshiba, the major proponent of the HD DVD format, lost the standards battle to Sony, creator of the rival Blu-ray system. In August, it introduced a new technology, a standard-definition DVD player using a technology it called XDE.

The XD-E500 player, Toshiba said, would bring near HD quality to standard-definition DVDs, mainly by using advanced edge-enhancement technology. Today, the XD-E500 can be had for $99 or less, while the least expensive Blu-ray players are priced south of $300. (Other highly regarded upconverting DVD players are available from such companies as Oppo Digital.)

I’m a big fan of the DVD format. It offers a quantum leap in picture quality as compared to videotape, longer-lasting media and random rather than linear access.

But I’ve always questioned the benefits of Blu-ray; picture quality looks very good but I’m perfectly happy with standard-def DVDs. Unless you like Blu-ray’s extra features, like BD Live, the incremental difference in picture quality didn’t seem worth the expense.

To check out my assumptions, I did two side-by-side tests. I connected Toshiba’s XD-E500 and Panasonic’s sub-$300 (discontinued) DMP-BD35K Blu-ray players to a 46-inch Panasonic 1080p plasma set, the TH-46PZ850U. I ran the same movie in both simultaneously, the De Niro/Pacino thriller “Righteous Kill,” using Blu-ray and standard DVD copies, jogging back and forth between the inputs to make instant comparisons in picture quality. Then I switched out the Toshiba for a simple Sony progressive scan DVD player that cost me $70 three years ago.

The results: the XDE image was better than the old Sony, but not by much. And both looked quite good.

On the other hand, the Blu-ray machine simply blew away both standard-definition players. The difference was dramatic. The Blu-ray images were smooth, sharp and rich. Every scene “popped” with a clarity and presence never seen with standard DVD, making the scenes, whether daytime exteriors or heavily shadowed interior club scenes, come alive.

Of course I was using one of the highest-rated flat-panel TVs available, and in a size designed to accentuate Blu-ray’s quality. I doubt that the differences would have been so noticeable on more modest-sized screens viewed at the same 10-foot distance I was using.

Toshiba is a bit oblique in its marketing claims. The company’s Web site states that the XD-E500 “upconverts standard-definition DVD content to HD.” But it also cautions that “although near the picture quality, XDE does not produce or result in native HD video content.”

The difference in picture quality between Blu-ray and standard-definition DVD was very obvious. But the difference is accentuated when you get the chance to flip back and forth between the two. Just as many owners of rear-projection DLP sets don’t notice that their picture is getting dimmer over time, many owners of standard-definition DVD players will be perfectly happy with the picture quality, and won’t notice what they’re missing, unless they have something better, such as Blu-ray, with which to compare it.

Blu-ray player prices continue to fall; Toshiba must know that its XDE products have a very limited life span. The cost difference between the two is barely more than $100, and once that declines even further, there will be little reason for the average consumer not to choose Blu-ray when looking for a DVD machine.

Toshiba combines innovation, design and affordability with the launch of the new REGZA RV series
13/03/2009

http://www.home-entertainment.toshiba.co.uk/templates/Toshiba/ShowImage.ashx?iswidth=True&size=193&image=/upload/LCDTV/tv_3.jpg
Models are available 32”, 37” and 42” screen sizes`

A stylish new range of Full 1080p HD LCD TVs featuring a new MetaBrain engine

Weybridge, UK, 13th March 2009 – Toshiba UK today announces the launch of the new REGZA RV series – a stylish new range of Full 1080p HD LCD TVs featuring a new MetaBrain engine and Toshiba’s award-winning Resolution+ upscaling technology.

The REGZA RV series delivers a range of new innovations that offer true user benefits at affordable price points. As well as the inclusion of Toshiba’s acclaimed Resolution+ technology, the RV series is also powered by the new MetaBrain processing engine, providing high quality image performance with both SD and HD video sources.

RV series models are available 32”, 37” and 42” screen sizes, all of which offer full 1920x1080p resolution panels for full HD support. The launch of a 32” model is also the first time that a 1080p panel and Toshiba’s Resolution+ technology have been available together in the 32” sector. Each model is styled in a classic gloss black, with slick colour gradation to white at the lower front panel, just above a subtle speaker grille.

All models also feature an energy-saving Eco-Panel that runs at a lower wattage than regular LCD TV panels. The inclusion of Eco-Panel technology ensures that energy consumption is kept to a minimum, without effecting performance – ultimately saving consumers money on energy bills.

MetaBrain – the intelligent image processor

MetaBrain is the new processing engine for high-end models in Toshiba’s REGZA LCD TV range. A single chip solution with a number of capabilities, Toshiba’s MetaBrain engine powers multiple technologies simultaneously, including Resolution+, Active Vision II picture processing and an innovative AutoView mode that allows consumers to enjoy optimum picture settings, regardless of content and room conditions.

Originally launched in 2008, Toshiba’s Resolution+ technology is designed to be the bridge between a standard definition source – such as a digital television broadcast or DVD – and the HD resolution screen. The technology works by using a powerful processor to review the adjacent areas of an image, picking out similar waveforms and combining pixel information to enhance edge detail within the picture. The result is a sharper and more defined image, much closer to high-definition standard.

Quality images are provided by Active Vision II picture processing, an evolution of the Active Vision processing featured in previous REGZA models. Much like the previous versions, Active Vision II improves picture performance by enhancing four key components of image reproduction – colour, movement, detail and contrast – only with noticeably improved results. Colours are reproduced with greater accuracy, images are richer and moving images are handled with greater precision. Contrast ratios of 50,000:1 also provide bright whites and fuller, darker blacks.

An innovative AutoView feature enhances image quality by measuring room conditions and content in tandem and adjusting the image appropriately. Both natural and artificial lighting conditions are taken into account and analysed against the actual content being played, meaning that images are always suited to immediate room conditions. In bright conditions, for example, AutoView will darken the backlight to the optimum setting for the surroundings, while in dark conditions the panel will be lightened without affecting the overall colour palette.

Each model also includes Toshiba’s Game Mode feature – which provides a dedicated link between the console, eradicating any potential controller response lag. 1:1 pixel mapping also ensures that all content is correctly displayed on screen as intended, without any information trim at the outer edges.

Integrated Dolby Digital Plus audio technology provides intelligent acoustic performance, ensuring that audio bit-rates are maintained and audio compression is reduced – providing high-quality sound and instant compatibility with existing Dolby Digital sound systems.

All models feature 4xHDMI inputs, offering increased connectivity to a range of devices, such as the latest DVD players, HD camcorders and games consoles. In addition, the RV also offer USB connectivity – allowing users to view JPEG images – while a dedicated PC Input also allows users to connect to personal computers if required.

The complete REGZA RV range features an integrated Digital Tuner as standard, allowing users to access digital TV services such as Freeview out of the box. A full power-down switch is also included, allowing users to completely switch off their sets without relying on standby.

Making DVD content portable - March 3, 2009
Somebody seems to be working on a plan to let DVD owners legally rip their discs to flash memory cards, presumably for playback in portable devices. The most likely suspect is Toshiba, which is a principal patent holder in the DVD format and therefore has a keen interest in extending its life-cycle, and is the second largest producer of NAND flash memory chips in the world after Samsung. Toshiba also chairs the steering committee and has dropped all sorts of hints over the past year that DVD-to-flash is where it was heading.

The latest evidence comes from a summary of the Feb. 25th meeting of the DVD Forum's steering committee, which were posted on the group's Web site today. Among the items approved at the meeting was the formation of an ad hoc group to study the "download of the DVD format, or derivatives thereof, to Flash Memory Cards."

Not clear exactly what "derivatives thereof," might refer to but conceivably it could be a temporary copy of the movie on a hard drive before it's transferred to the flash card.

Assuming Toshiba is behind the new study group it would dovetail with its involvement with MOD Systems, which is working to deploy kiosks in retail locations for downloading movies to SD cards. Toshiba has invested over $20 million in the venture (although aspects of its investment have become the subject of litigation).

At CES in January, Toshiba also unveiled several new LCD TV models equipped with SD card slots, presumably in anticipation of playing back content from flash memory.

The hitch, of course, is that any authorized ripping of DVDs would have to be sanctioned by the DVD Copy Control Assn., which administers the license for CSS, the copy-protection system used on DVDs. As long-time Media Wonk readers know, DVD-CCA has been wrestling with the legal and technical aspects of a so-called managed-copy system for DVDs for the better part of four years, so far to little effect.

While much of that effort has been focused on PCs as the copying device, Toshiba last year proposed a managed-copy protocol for consumer electronics devices. Presumably, that might now include DVD players capable of ripping movies directly to SD cards.

Toshiba's Turn to Reshuffle at the Top
A new CEO has the giant task of returning the tech giant to profitability as Toshiba faces what may be its biggest lost in 60 years

By Kenji Hall

On Mar. 18, Toshiba's president, Atsutoshi Nishida, said that he would step down in June after a four-year run. Nishida will become chairman and pass the company's top executive post to Sasaki, a former nuclear researcher and his hand-picked successor. Nishida said he offered the job to Sasaki, a senior vice-president, two weeks ago. "For a moment, I was hesitant," the 59-year-old Sasaki told a packed conference room at Toshiba's Tokyo headquarters. "There's a huge amount of pressure involved in taking over during this very tough period."

Toshiba 2009 Product Showcase
Danny Phillips
19th Mar 2009

Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge was the venue for Toshiba's 2009 product launch, where the company unveiled a whole host of new LCD TVs, DVD players and digital recorders, as well as giving the assembled journalists a glimpse of its forthcoming Net Player and Cell TV technologies.

Despite the recession and the company's withdrawal from the high-definition disc player market, Toshiba remained upbeat at the launch and announced a 13 per cent rise in UK revenues over the last year. The company is also standing by its decision to shun Blu-ray, with DVD product manager Fiona Patterson pointing out that 253m DVDs were sold in December 2008 compared with 1.5m Blu-ray discs - though how long Tosh can maintain this stance as Blu-ray grows in popularity is anyone's guess.

New Speaker System Clarifies Sound by Canceling Its Own Noise
Mar 17, 2009 18:07
Yukiko Kanoh, Nikkei Electronics

http://techon.nikkeibp.co.jp/english/NEWS_EN/20090317/167297/3AA.jpg

Toshiba Corp developed a new technology to accurately reproduce sound by using an auxiliary speaker.

The company developed the "accurate sound reproduction technology" in collaboration with Shiro Ise, an associate professor at the Department of Urban and Environmental Engineering, Kyoto University Graduate School of Engineering, and Actimo Ltd.

The technology uses sound from an auxiliary speaker to eliminate noise (sound other than the original sound) generated from the main speaker. The noise results from insufficient rigidity of a chassis and supporting parts. And the new technology cancels it out with opposite-phase sound waves generated from the auxiliary speaker attached to the main speaker, enabling to exactly reproduce the original sound, according to Toshiba.

In general, about 40% of the sound from a speaker is sound other than the original sound, and the percentage increases in the case of an ABS chassis, a thin chassis that is normally used in small and thin AV equipment, according to the company.

This time, Toshiba confirmed that such non-original sound can be eliminated by more than 90% in an experiment using equipment incorporating this technology. The company plans to conduct research and development for introducing this technology in its products.

Toshiba and its partners will announce this technology at the 2009 Spring Meeting of the Acoustical Society of Japan, which takes place from March 17, 2009, in Tokyo.

Mais uma análise com a tv Toshiba 42XV545U.

Nessa análise não comenta-se sobre os ajustes utilizados na função Super Resolution e apesar de afirmarem que a tecnologia Super Resolution funciona, não acharam grande coisa.



Toshiba 42XV545U LCD TV Reviewed
March 18, 2009

Toshiba knows that the DTV transition is upon us, albeit a little delayed for now. The company is well enough aware that, just because broadcasters are sending out the TV signals digitally, this doesn't mean everything they're sending is high-definition. For this reason, the company has developed a new system called Super Resolution Technology, which is meant to process poor standard-definition TV into near-HDTV. The 42-inch LCD model 42XV545U uses SRT, among other features, to provide a clean and clear digital picture. The original list price at about $1,500 made this a pricy 42-inch TV, but current prices of around $1,000 or less make it a much easier buy.

I've always liked Toshiba TVs ever since the old days, when they made quality CRT rear-projection systems. Toshiba tends to balance the qualities of performance and value. With LCD TVs, they may not rival the best-looking products from Samsung and Sony, but the lower cost generally gives you more bang for your buck, which is good enough for most people and much better than the second-tier brands.

Like most premium-brand LCD TVs, the 42XV545U is a 1080p-resolution model with an assortment of features for image and connectivity. For plugging in, you get four HDMI inputs to dock your cable box, Blu-ray player, game system and whatnot. Component, S-video and composite inputs are also available for your legacy non-digital gear. On the image side, Toshiba offers 120Hz ClearFrame processing (based on vector frame interpolation), which doubles the picture frame rate to take away some of the motion blur that can creep up on LCD TVs. You'll also find the company's PixelPure 4G feature, which uses a 14-bit processing engine to ensure smooth colors.

The 120Hz feature and PixelPure can also be found elsewhere in Toshiba's line. The SRT feature is what's new for the company. While essentially it's just another upconverting feature, similar to what any fixed-pixel display includes, Toshiba claims SRT goes further at smoothing jagged edges and enhancing colors. SRT is based on the company's Cell processor, similar to the powerful engine behind Sony's PlayStation 3.

So does SRT work? Simply, yes. Does it make all your standard-definition programming look like high-definition? No, not even close. It does make standard definition less annoying, and that's something. SRT will smooth out some of the roughness of SD TV, but this is something most other premium TVs do as well.

With high-definition content, the Toshiba looks very good. Some color banding was apparent, and the picture was not quite as sharp and vibrant as my favorite flat panel TVs, but it's a good performer.

High Points

•The easy-to-use onscreen menu with advanced red, blue and green color controls lets you customize the picture to your heart's content, if you know how.
• If you don't want to spend time tweaking the advanced controls, the Auto mode will get you 90 percent there without all the work.
•The TV sports an attractive glossy bezel that's only about one-and-a-half inches deep.
•This model is EnergyStar 3.0-compliant.

Low Points

•The remote lacks a back light, making it very difficult to use in the dark.
•Some color banding was apparent on HD images, and the contrast was not as strong as what we've found in some Samsung and Sony models.
•SRT, while it does remove most of the jagged edges, also softens detail.

Conclusion

The Toshiba 42XV545U show's Toshiba's commitment to offering practical technologies, rather than loading up on useless features. Don't get me wrong: I'm kind of a fan of useless features, but most people just want a competent TV that won't make them sacrifice a mortgage payment. This one qualifies, and it comes from a long-standing reputable brand to boot.

* Teufel Theater 5


Resolution+ in practice: DVD playback

http://www.areadvd.de/images/2009/toshiba_42zv555_greysteps.jpg

The 42ZV555D with resolution at Level 2 + represents the moving image through the star destroyer sharp detail and rich dar. In the rear area and in the area of the wing are many details that are otherwise often muddy effect. It is important, but again the correct viewing distance for the perception of the HD looks. Who is right in front of the screen is stuck, can have visible artifacts do not complain. The exterior of the space hunter seems very finely modeled - for Star Wars Episode 3, we recommend the resolution Plus Level 2 . The image at the depth of the space hunter Abkicken down into battle is visibly better when resolution is + activated. The differentiation, especially in the lower levels is really good. Accounting + resolution provides a real innovation, which benefits a lot more accurate application entails.

Resolution+ in Practice: Analog TV Tuner

We recommend a maximum resolution + on Level 2 to make. Then the analogue TV-tuner picture-clear plastic and clear - without the noise on hand. It is clear that it is important, not too close to the TV to sit, because then you can see the noise clearly.

Balance resolution +

Accounting + resolution provides a real innovation, which with proper use of a genuine multi-gain in image quality provides. Elementary importance of the correct viewing distance and an accurate calibration of the image. Then you can also SD picture signals a "HD-look" to enjoy.

Blu-ray picture

To set the image quality of Toshiba 42ZV555D in the Blu-ray to assess the operation, we used the first Blu-ray "Baraka" with its reference image. Already the mountain is right at the beginning of Toshiba under accurate image calibration (user mode movie, Panel Brightness 0, Contrast 66, Brightness 47, Color 55, DNR off MPEG NR off) very vividly reproduced.

Overall Blu-ray picture in relation to the price category: Excellent.

De-interlacing and upscaling

Checks with the AVEC Professional Test-DVD and Star Wars Ep III, connection via component 576i

* Review of the upscaling quality SD picture sharpness test to 6.75 MHz: Very good resolution, low noise propensity, only minimal double contours

* Run scripts in different speeds: Uniform barrel, barely only very slight Flimmerneigung

* Woman in white dress against a white background: Good delineation of two different intense shades of white, very clean motion playback, no stairs in the arms or the neck of an attractive lady. Only very slight flicker

* Pendulum in different speeds: The line on which the pendulum moves, remains absolutely stable. After virtually no puller and no color "bleeding" at the pendulum. An excellent performance of the 42ZV555D -

* Cityscape Esslingen: Saubere motion playback, hardly artifacts, stable image with very low flicker

* SStar Wars Episode III, De-interlacing of film material, Upscaling: The yellow letters at the beginning of the movie is realistic in color, it is also quiet and stable. Only very slight flicker is observed. The individual letters are in themselves homogeneous, and also the parts of the Scripture, after running back into space, there are virtually shake-free. The Star Destroyer moves with only a slight flicker, but sharp and detailed drawn through the picture. The battle above Coruscant from Toshiba is very clean and diverse shows. Various motions parallel properly, is critical for 42ZV555 no problem, fast-moving area hunters, the inherently slow-moving giant Raumkreuzern and command ships fly past will be sharply depicted, as are almost without Bewegungsunschärfen many details to the big spaceships recognizable.

A total of 42ZV555 provides the best scaling and de-interlacing performance, which we have in this price league (about 1,000 EUR market) have seen. Congratulations, and the overall outstanding in relation to the price range.

Overall Conclusion

http://www.areadvd.de/images/2009/toshiba_42zv555_n_1.jpg

Toshiba is 42ZV555D with a new price class Reference succeeded with great visual strength itself almost twice as expensive counterparts difficult to deal with. The useful Resolution + technology, if properly used, a clear plastic and sharper image. The built-De-Scaler Interlacer and deliver excellent results in the processing of film and video material. The panel has only a minimal greenish tint, otherwise the color shows no weakness. The contrast is excellent, the black level is for a CCFL device very well. It could still be hidden potential for improvement. Just when the connection assembly: It is missing a fourth HDMI input and a USB port. Very well appointed, it is the sound quality of the built in speaker system. The Toshiba produced a clear and natural sound. The processing as well as the rich-equipped video-EQ secure more valuable points. Who an exceptionally powerful LCD-TV is looking for a low price, the Toshiba comes 42ZV555 currently not gone.

Toshiba Qosmio F50: Notebook with Cell Co-Processor
[02/23/2009 04:04 PM | Mobile]
by Ilya Gavrichenkov

Toshiba Company decided to start using a special SpursEngine processor based on Cell architecture. We are going to talk about the peculiarities of this processor with the help of a solution from Toshiba Qosmio series that usually includes the most expensive and functional models.

Besides Toshiba’s Qosmio F50, G50 and G55 series notebooks, the SpursEngine can be found on standalone PCI Express cards offered by Leadtek and Thompson as well as in the new 42- and 46-inch TV-sets Toshiba Regza.
http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/mobile/display/toshiba-qosmio-f50.html

Além de estar presente nos laptops, placas PCI Express da LeadTek e Thompson, SpursEngine também dentro de alguns modelos de tv Toshiba REGZA? Será mesmo?...(Já tinha visto comentários sobre sistema Meta Brain Premium (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1346376&postcount=1286) nas tv´s Toshiba REGZA japonesas com super resolution e alguns comentários sobre SpursEngine em tv´s REGZA série ZV européias (http://www.thetechherald.com/article.php/200846/2431/Toshiba-launches-upscaling-Regza-ZV-HDTV)...)

O sistema Meta Brain Premium (vai saber se o LSI utilizado é o próprio SpursEngine...):

TV´s LCD REGZA linhas ZV, SV e XV com Resolution+ em Portugal:



Toshiba apresenta novos televisores LCD

O fabricante nipónico anunciou novos televisores com a tecnologia Resolution+, que permite aumentar a resolução do vídeo para níveis próximos da qualidade da alta definição.
A Toshiba Portugal anunciou novos televisores com ecrãs entre as 32 e as 55 polegadas, distribuídos por três linhas: REGZA ZV, REGSA SV e REGZA XV. Chegam em Abril ao mercado português e incluem todos a tecnologia Resolution+, que anteriormente só estava disponível em modelos de topo.

Entre as características, destaque para: AutoView, que ajusta automaticamente a luminosidade do ecrã em função da luz ambiente; Active Vision, que acerta automaticamente os níveis de luz e contraste em função da imagem que está a ser reproduzida; LED local dimming, que permite alterar a intensidade da luz de retroiluminação em zonas específicas, de modo a criar negros mais intensos, aumentar o contraste e poupar energia; Dolby Volume, para manter os níveis de volume independentemente da fonte (quando se muda de canal, por exemplo) e reter a equalização do som quando se diminui e aumenta o volume (graves, médios e agudos).

A Toshiba aproveitou o evento de lançamento dos novos modelos para comunicar a nova estratégia da empresa em Portugal, que agora passa por comercializar e prestar assistência técnica directamente aos televisores e aos leitores de DVD da marca.

Pois é André,

A Semp Toshiba nem o dvd player XD-E500 trouxe para o Brasil...

Mas eu acho que seria muito interessante a Semp Toshiba investir em tv´s com Resolution+ no Brasil, pois apesar dela já comercializar tv´s com sintonizador digital embutido, a presença de material em SD ainda é muito forte aqui (em transmissões de tv aberta e por assinatura, DVD´s em locadoras e lojas) e o Resolution+ seria muito bem vindo. :tu:

Na europa o Resolution+ que inicialmente estava presente apenas em modelos top, agora em 2009 vai aparecer também em modelos mais simples, inclusive com telas relativamente pequenas, de 32".

André,

De início o principal uso dessas placas com processador SpursEngine ficam por conta dos encoders/decoders MPEG2/H.264 por hardware (no caso do H.264, em High Profile @ Level 4.1).

Posteriormente até podem ser desenvolvidas outras aplicações utilizando os 4 SPE´s do SpursEngine.

Com o encoder feito pelo SpursEngine o processador do PC fica com muita capacidade de processamento livre, permitindo então que durante o encoding no Spurs, simultaneamente o trabalho de edição continue, utilizando recursos do processador do PC/aceleradora gráfica.

No caso de aceleradoras gráficas da NVidia com suporte à tecnologia CUDA, como na sua atual 8600GT (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1348725&postcount=1298) ou na 9600GT (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1549188&postcount=214), o uso em softwares otimizados para NVidia CUDA e SpursEngine se beneficiam das duas tecnologias.

A fabricante japonesa de eletrônicos Toshiba planeja se tornar a única controladora da join venture para fabricação de TVs de LCD que tem com a Panasonic, a Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology. A informação é de pessoas próximas à empresa ouvidas pelo The Wall Street Journal.

A Toshiba detém 60% da joint venture, enquanto a Panasonic é dona dos outros 40%. Os planos da Toshiba seriam adquirir a sua participação da Panasonic, para se tornar a única controladora da empresa, que começou a operar em 2002.

O valor da transação não foi revelado, sabe apenas que giraria em torno de bilhões de ienes.

Trident Enhanced Super Resolution (ESR)



Trident Microsystems Unveils Enhanced Super Resolution

Trident's Advanced Image-Processing Technology Dramatically Improves Standard-Definition Video Images on HDTVs

Santa Clara, Calif. --- April 15, 2009 --- Trident Microsystems, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRID), a leader in high-performance semiconductor system solutions for the multimedia and digital-television markets, today announced its new, state-of-the-art video processing technology, Enhanced Super Resolution (ESR). This technology is available on Trident's HiDTV Pro-SX, the company's latest system-on-chip (SoC) product, and includes new features that improve the viewing experience of standard-definition video images on high-definition televisions.

"Customers know they can expect best-in-class image-processing solutions from Trident, and we are proud to continue in this tradition by adding ESR to our SoC solutions," said Trident Chief Marketing Officer Wen Li. "ESR is the latest example of our commitment on innovation as we help our customers create the most realistic and satisfying viewing experience."

While consumers have been buying high definition TVs for many years, the majority of video content is still in standard definition. Trident's ESR technology incorporates superior upscaling, with sophisticated noise reduction algorithms, allowing end users to take advantage of their televisions' high-resolution capabilities by improving standard-definition images with enhanced details, which creates a sharper, crisper image that appears more like high definition. Trident's new ESR technology enhances images without sacrificing details when content is in high definition.

About Trident Microsystems, Inc.

Trident Microsystems, Inc., with headquarters in Santa Clara, California, designs, develops and markets digital media for the masses in the form of multimedia integrated circuits (ICs) for PCs and digital processing ICs for TVs and TV monitors.

Semp-Toshiba: Dominava no tubão e agora no LCD não?



11/05/2009 - 08:30

Toshiba muda para encarar LCDs

São Paulo - Exibir o título de líder em televisores no Brasil sempre foi motivo de orgulho para a Semp Toshiba, empresa que produziu o primeiro aparelho de televisão no País em 1951. Maior fabricante nacional de eletroeletrônicos, a empresa ocupou a posição por quase uma década, enfrentando a concorrência de poderosos fabricantes estrangeiros, como LG, Samsung, Philips e Panasonic. Mas a popularização dos televisores de LCD fez a empresa - que é forte em aparelho em tubo e possui presença muito tímida em LCD - perder o título. Cada fabricante nesse setor exibe um número distinto, mas, segundo a consultoria Euromonitor, o posto foi perdido para a LG já em 2007. "O valor faturado (da LG) pode ser maior. Parabéns. Mas quem chega em mais lares sou eu", insiste o presidente da Semp Toshiba, Afonso Hennel.

Até 2006, o mercado de televisores era dominado pelos modelos de tubo, que representaram 95% dos 12 milhões de televisores vendidos. Mas o ritmo de crescimento dos LCDs, de quase 240% no ano passado, segundo o IT Data, e de queda nas vendas de tubo (22% em 2008), - tem surpreendido a fabricante, que ainda não conseguiu se posicionar no segmento de mais alta tecnologia. Os aparelhos em LCD, responsáveis por 25% das vendas em 2008, devem alcançar a marca de 35% este ano, segundo estimativa da Semp Toshiba. "O tubo ainda vai sobreviver por bastante tempo", diz Hennel. Ainda. No atual ritmo, o número de aparelhos em LCD e afins devem superar os de tubo já no ano que vem.

O empresário justifica sua presença tímida em LCDs sob o argumento de que a tecnologia tem mudado muito rapidamente e os custos estavam muito altos. "Pelos preços praticados no mercado no ano passado, as fabricantes estavam perdendo dinheiro", diz Hennel. "Preferi não vender a vender com prejuízo. É muito bacana dizer que você está no mercado, bombando, mas depois você quebra. Não tenho fôlego para bater em coreano, japonês. A capacidade do nosso concorrente estrangeiro de perder dinheiro é impressionante." A empresa vendeu 100 mil unidades de LCD em 2008, mas este ano pretende triplicar a produção. As informações são do jornal O Estado de S. Paulo.

XXL-TEST: Toshiba Full-HD-LCD 37RV635

Test Equipment:

* KEF 5.1-LS-Set: 4 x XQ40, 1 x XQ50c, 1 x PSW-4000
* Yamaha DSP-Z11
* Pioneer BDP-51FD
* Toshiba HD-XE1

Introduction
For a suggested retail price of 699 EUR had the brand new 37-inch models from Toshiba 37RV635 in our test room to prove. For the low price is the REGZA LCD TV enormously well-equipped. The new ECO-panel LCD TV saves in comparison to the 2008 models from a lot of power: to 26 percent, the power consumption thanks to the use of new, energy-saving fluorescent tubes should be reduced. A special film on the screen is for a substantially higher light output is responsible, so that the brightness of the flat panel display, despite the lower energy are fully preserved. Also new is the "AutoView" feature - ideal for less experienced users and passionate Stromsparen. Using AutoView is the 37RV635 automatically to the site conditions at a room similar to a EQ automatic system for AV receivers. Auto View takes into account the color temperature of the ambient light, the brightness of ambient light and the actual image content of the incoming video signal. There is a permanent, dynamic adaptation of the graphic contents to the Umgebungslichtcharakeristika.

With a low power and an optimum adaptation to ambient light, the technical achievements, which the 37-inch available, but by no means exhausted - because a small revolution is the "heart" of the simple, straightforward design held dar. TV The high-performance, brand new "Meta Brain" command processor handled eight channels simultaneously and can handle more processes than the predecessor. Furthermore, the resolution+ on 37RV635, which is the sharpness and the detail of SD sources optimized. If the intensity of resolution+ set correctly and agrees with the viewing distance of the viewer, also appear SD sources in the quasi-HD look. In his work analyzing resolution + image information, then improved the crucial points and examine the result in a final step for any errors. During the follow-up of the SD material, only the parts of the image nachgeschärft that sense. Poor color and detail parts, to the harmony of the image, are not nachgeschärft. Edges and detailed picture, however, are parts assistance. The edges are also smoothed in order to avoid unsightly stair. BTW: Even the resolution + function is integrated in Auto View.


http://www.areadvd.de/images/2009/toshiba_37rv635_menu_resolution_plus.jpg

Resolution +: On, Off, in a mode that allows this feature, 1-5 adjust well here it is advisable to check the setting 2 or 3 to choose, because this is the best result. However, in the first place in DVDs, the picture quality of a proper and which are therefore very good for the post with resolution + recommended. Sources with poor signal quality (eg, analog-TV) should be set to 1 or 2 "will be handled.

http://www.areadvd.de/images/2009/toshiba_37rv635_tv_tuner.jpg
Good DVB-T picture

Score with Resolution +:

The image appears much sharper and vivid, the image depth increases. The training takes artifacts, despite the post-sharpening not (resolution + at level 2). Fonts are sharper run again, and there are more image details. The effect is only at a realistic distance visible, who in the immediate vicinity (up to 1.50 m distance) to the TV sits, provides that Toshiba can not conjure up the picture will be somewhat grainy and überschärft. For regular intervals but increase plasticity and picture depth and overall picture sharpness visible without the need for unsightly side effects of creep. Overall in relation to the price category: very good - excellent.

Análise da CNET com as LCD Toshiba REGZA ZV650U (Resolution+) americanas.

Mantendo o mesmo padrão de suas análises anteriores com modelos REGZA Resolution+/ Super Resolution de 2008, nota 3 de 5.

Sobre o Resolution+ na opinião da CNET:

"Conseguimos obter efeito com funcionalidade idêntica, aos nossos olhos, aumentando o controle de nitidez em qualquer TV."



Standard-definition: Despite the ZV650U's Resolution+ processing, touted as an aide to standard-def processing, the set didn't perform very well in this category.

We could achieve a functionally identical effect, to our eye, by increasing the Sharpness control on any TV.

As análises da CNET com os 3 modelos da série ZV650U:

Toshiba 42ZV650U (http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/toshiba-42zv650u/4505-6482_7-33490635.html)
Toshiba 47ZV650U (http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/toshiba-47zv650u/4505-6482_7-33490636.html)
Toshiba 55ZV650U (http://reviews.cnet.com/flat-panel-tvs/toshiba-55zv650u/4505-6482_7-33490637.html)

Curiosidade...

Será que a CNET considera que ajustar o nível de nitidez em qualquer tv ligada a um dvd player sem upscale também gera resultados idênticos aos obtidos na imagem gerada por dvd players com upscale? (não precisa nem ser dvd player upscale top...)

Pra que Resolution+ não é mesmo? O negócio é dar um "plus" no ajuste de sharp na tv e boa...Huahuahua :lol:.

Na terra do Sebastien Bourdais e Sebastien Buemi...

Análise da 01net com a Toshiba REGZA 37RV625D (Resolution+) francesa.

Sobre o Resolution+, segundo a análise deles o resultado pode ser aleatório e vai depender da qualidade da fontes SD e da combinação com os níveis de ajuste do Resolution+.

Para fontes de qualidade média eles comentam sobre melhora de qualidade com o ajuste do Resolution+ em 1 ou 2.

Em DVD eles comentam também que os resultados variam dependendo da qualidade da imagem do DVD. Em alguns filmes o ganho é perceptivel, em outros não.

A conclusão é que a qualidade do upscale via Resolution+ depende da qualidade das fontes SD.

Normal. Fonte SD "baleada" tende a ter upscale "baleado" e fonte SD de melhor qualidade, upscale de melhor qualidade.

Sobre a qualidade da tv como um todo, logicamente incluindo a exibição de material de alta definição, ela foi muito elogiada:

"Reprodução de fontes HD impecável"

An amazing 1080p HDTV LCD TV at a great price

Toshiba does not outbid or gadget and offers a TV at low cost, simple and functional.

Eric Le Ven | 01net. | le 20/05/2009 à 17h23

Resolution+:

The novelty of this model lies in the integration of Resolution + technology and a video processor called Meta Brain. Resolution+ mode offers HD upscaling of SD sources with various levels of settings. The result?. Random. The sources of medium quality SD earn a little more precise with the stalled mode + Resolution 1 or 2.
On the DVD, is variable. On some films, the dynamic gain is palpable, on others it does nothing. Therefore difficult to have a consistent opinion on the appropriateness of this Resolution +. It really depends sources. But in general, if you have a Blu-ray, it is better to let himself make this inflation in HD.

http://www.01net.com/imgv6/rub/produits/ventre/fichepdt_verdict.gif

Simple to use, cheap, offering options calibration depth, providing excellent color rendering and good contrast, the Toshiba 37RV625D forget its lack of originality, lack of openness and multimedia aesthetic dopey with a reproduction HD impeccable sources and perfect ergonomics. Une bonne surprise. A good surprise.

No caso das tv´s Toshiba isso não é problema, pois ela conta com OFF e ON (com diferentes níveis de ajustes) para o upscale via Super Resolution.

Um bom sinal com relação a preço é que o Resolution+ (pelo menos na linha européia) agora em 2009 apareceu também em tv´s de 32".

Por enquanto acho que só a Toshiba está com produtos com upscale via Super Resolution disponíveis comercialmente, mas assim que aparecerem tv´s utilizando Super Resolution com soluções da NEC, Zoran, Hitachi, Broadcom, Trident, etc, a tendência é maior competição e redução de preços. :tu:

Análise da Trusted Reviews com a Toshiba REGZA 37AV635D (Resolution+) no Reino Unido

Essa tv HD Ready (1366x768) se saiu muito bem com material SD em upscale utilizando o Resolution+, mas ficou um pouco a desejar com material em alta definição.




http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/3218/37av635d.jpg

I don't mind admitting that I'm more excited by the arrival of Toshiba's strikingly cheap 37AV635D than I am by most 'entry-level' TVs. Why? Because it has the potential to be the best entry-level TV in town.

My reasoning behind these bold words is simply that despite resting towards the bottom of Toshiba's new flat TV range and costing absolute peanuts (under £550) by 37in LCD standards, the 37AV635D carries a little feature called Resolution+.

Resolution+, as regular readers may recall, hugely impressed both myself and fellow reviewer Danny Philips for the cracking job it did of improving standard definition pictures. So finding such a powerful video processing engine on such a strikingly cheap TV is an unexpected treat, and one that has the potential to single-handedly make the 37AV635D a massive hit with today's cash-strapped punters.

And so, after much more feature-related delay than expected, we come to the moment of truth. Does its MetaBrain, more specifically Resolution+ processing, make the 37AV635 the bargain dream machine I'd been hoping for?

With day-to-day standard definition TV fare, the answer is a qualified yes. For as I'd hoped, Resolution+ works its magic in producing standard definition pictures that look remarkably sharper than they normally would. What makes Resolution+ really clever, though, is how it manages to add so much extra sharpness and detail to standard definition pictures without adding or emphasising video noise aside from some very slight over-stressing of one or two high-contrast edges.

Thanks to the noiselessness of its detail-boosting efforts, the 37AV635 can justifiably claim to deliver the most HD-like standard definition pictures ever seen from a mass market TV. Honestly.

Verdict

The 37AV635D is a frustrating 'game of two halves'. As I'd hoped, its MetaBrain helps it do a great job with standard definition fodder - indeed, it produces for my money the best standard definition pictures I've seen at the sub-£600 price point. This alone could be enough to win it many fans among price-conscious consumers not really interested in the whole HD phenomenon.

But the 37AV635D doesn't fare nearly so well as an HD movie - or gaming - screen thanks to its black level problems, and slightly soft HD presentation.

NEC Ships New LSI With HD Upscaling Capabilities

NEC μPD9280GM LSI
http://www.necel.com/news/ja/archive/0905/images/2501_s.jpg

NEC Electronics developed a new LSI that enhances the resolution of video and still images by upscalling it to HD (1920 x 1080).

The new μPD9280GM LSI is based on the company's single-frame super-resolution technology and addresses the challenge of how to show low-resolution images on new high-definition electronic products.

NEC claims that the LSI reduces the blurring that occurs when low-resolution images are expanded and displayed in high-resolution. It also sharpens out-of-focus images, smoothes rough edges and refines contours by analyzing and processing information contained in one frame of data in real time. The core of the LSI operates at 150MHz, significantly improving the processing speed of the image data compared to the company's previous generation of chips.

The technology enables very high-resolution processing with just one frame of image data. Reducing the processing load eliminates the need for expensive, external high-capacity memory, such as double-data-rate (DDR) SDRAM, thereby reducing cost and power consumption, and simplifying connections to existing systems.

The LSI enhances image data from the standard resolution (640x480) to 1920 x 1080-pixel high-definition (HD), one billion colors (30-bit color).

The LSI can be installed in DVD recorders, digital video cameras as well as HD TVs, according to NEC.

NEC plans to begin commercial production of the LSu in June. Samples are currently available for 2,000 yen/piece.

Análise da Trusted Reviews com a Toshiba REGZA 42RV635D (Resolution+)

Um fato que eles notaram é que o resultado do upscale via Resolution+ na REGZA 42RV635D ficou com um pouco mais de ruído se comparado à 37AV635D, segundo eles, provavelmente devido ao upscale para 1920x1080 (na 37AV635D 1366x768), mas eles comentam também que a diferença é mínima e faz com que a 42RV635D seja uma das LCD de baixo custo com melhor performance para fontes de definição standard.

Semp-Toshiba Brasil, que tal lançar no nosso mercado tv´s com Resolution+ partindo de modelos 32"/37" 720p a preços interessantes?...



http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/3876/42rv635d.jpg
If there's one trend that stands out above all others in the TV world right now, it's eco-friendliness. So it's no great surprise to find Toshiba joining the green fray with the 42RV635D: a 42in LCD TV that carries a special 'Eco-Panel' designed to run at a lower wattage than your typical LCD panels. Which is all well and good, of course, so long as the set's bid to save the planet doesn't end up spoiling its picture quality!

Driving the eco panel, meanwhile, is Toshiba's MetaBrain technology. This includes two key video processing elements: Toshiba's Active Vision II engine, and Resolution+.

Briefly, for those of you not familiar with these two systems, Active Vision II is one of those 'all-purpose', multi-faceted picture processors that pretty much every brand now employs on its TVs in one form or another. The more interesting Resolution+ is Toshiba's proprietary - and usually hugely impressive - attempt to turn standard definition pictures into something more akin to high definition by adding resolution and edge definition while keeping a firm lid on video noise.

Another interesting element of the MetaBrain is its AutoView feature, a picture option which looks at both the image content and the amount of ambient light in your room when automatically calculating the picture's optimum brightness and contrast.

Thanks to the ever-impressive Resolution+ processing, the 42RV635D is also an accomplished standard definition performer, with far more resolution and crispness in its standard def images than we usually see on LCD TVs. If I was really picky I'd say the 42RV635D's standard definition pictures are marginally noisier than they were on the 37AV635D, probably because of the greater demands placed on the Resolution+ engine by the need to upscale standard definition to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels on the 42RV635D versus the 1,366 x 768 pixels of the 37AV635D. But the difference is minor, and doesn't stop the 42RV635D from being one of the best affordable standard definition LCD performers in town.

Verdict

As well as potentially saving you a few quid in its lifetime with its reduced running power, the 42RV635D offers a more consistent performance level between HD and standard def over its cheaper AV635 siblings. As such, it's a really good value proposition, provided you aren't likely to find yourself sitting to the TV's side all that often.

Aliás, falando do Button, ele tem estrela no "Butt" mesmo, e diferente do Barrichello (http://tazio.uol.com.br/f-1/textos/10193/), quando ele senta no cockpit ela não se apaga não, muito pelo contrário, fica é bem acesa. :bD

Mas como a Toshibinha 32" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=89190) parece que está agradando e a Semp-Toshiba que dominava no "tubão" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1689560&postcount=1890) vai ter que procurar aumentar a sua fatia no segmento LCD, acompanhar (pelo menos em parte (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1675733&postcount=1885)) os lançamentos do exterior seria uma boa...

Quanto à comparação de qualidade de visualização de material SD em tv´s de Plasma e LCD Resolution+ com upscale, seria interessante.

As plasmas se dão melhor com material SD se comparado às LCD "standard", mas existem plasmas que possuem também algum tipo de processamento específico para upscale SD > HD?

Pois é André,

A Panasonic tem os V-Real (2006) (não sei se existiu V-Real PRO...), V-Real 2(HD)/V-Real PRO 2(FullHD) (2007), V-Real 3(HD)/V-Real PRO 3(FullHD) (2008), V-Real 4(HD)/V-Real PRO 4(FullHD) (2009) que entre outras coisas, trabalham no upscale SD > Near HD. :tu:

O que a Panasonic fala do processador V-Real Digital Re-mastering é praticamente o mesmo que a Toshiba fala do Resolution+...

Comentários sobre o V-Real em 2006:



The ultimate High Definition range for 2006

Panasonic's Viera PX600 series

V-Real – the finer details

The new PX600 range includes a new digital processing chip-set which processes 720p or 1080i HD video signal in their original condition. The Digital Re-Mastering Processor, meanwhile, up-converts standard definition video signals to provide detailed, expressive images, allowing consumers to enjoy standard definition material at near HD quality.

An outstanding 29 billion colours can be displayed on the PX600 models, offering V-Real Gamma Control. A maximum 11.5 bit video processing makes it possible to reproduce images with 3,072 equivalent steps of gradation, thus suppressing the picture noise and black blocking that occur with insufficient gradation.

Never experienced before, the vibrancy and richness to blacks and colours is truly captivating. The V-Real Advanced 3D Colour Management system achieves precise control based on 3D management in the colour difference plane and brightness directions of red, blue and green separately. Colour and luminosity are independently processed to produce the optimal quality in each, resulting in a spectacular array of bright and beautiful colours.

V-Real Digital Processing chip-set processes the HD video signal in its original condition, without down-conversion

High Definition video signals allow reproduction of highly dramatic
images with exceptional detail. Used in VIERA, this high performance chip-set processes the HD signal without altering
its natural specifications.


V-Real Digital Re-mastering Processor up-converting various video signals into signals with higher image quality

This processor up-converts a variety of video signals, such as those from standard TV broadcasts and DVD movies, to provide a level of image quality that approaches HD. The resulting images have sharper detail and more lifelike realism.

http://img168.imageshack.us/img168/1417/hdtvtxp42x10.jpg

Panasonic's almost legendary V-real Picture Processing Engine now comes in the shape of V-real 4. Tweaks to the screens main picture processing circuitry have been designed to clean the incoming Standard Definition source as well as improving High Definition presentation.

Performance

Testament to further tweaking of V-real processing, the TX-P42X10 delivers an excellent Standard Definition (SD) performance. The handling of a poor quality 'Freeview' feed gives us the only cause for concern with the performance of the TX-P42X10. These concerns are relatively minor however with an element of on screen noise visible and some posturization apparent (obvious steps rather than a smooth transition in colour). Improve the quality with a cable or satellite feed and you are rewarded with an SD picture which serves as an excellent day to day platform for general viewing.

It is with its High Definition (HD) performance that the P42X10 really surprised us, with a picture performance that was a noticeable improvement on the PX80. These are by far the sharpest most detailed HD pictures we have seen on a non Full HD panel and rival a number of Full HD screens.

On the TX-P42X10 we were also pleasantly surprised to find an acoustic set up which finally goes some way to doing justice to the rest of the screen. While not comparable to a dedicated home cinema set up, the speakers on the P42X10 are a revelation. While the base could be stronger, this is one of the few TV's that can really cope with the demands of the strongest soundtracks.

Conclusion

It is perhaps not surprising that we felt a little under whelmed by the performance of the TX-P42X10 given the leap forward the PX80 range was on its predecessors. Having had time to appreciate the merits of Panasonics new budget screen we are growing to like it more and more. The P42X10 is actually an excellent all round plasma performer.

http://img88.imageshack.us/img88/1129/42zv555db.jpg

Most of us are happy with the pristine High Definition performance of our flat panel TV's, but the Standard Definition abilities of those same screens often leaves us disappointed. Toshiba's Resolution+ technology claims to have resolved the problem by upscaling SD material to HD quality. Resolution + makes its UK debut on Toshiba's 42ZV555DB.

Performance

Having been rather sceptical on hearing Toshiba's claims for its Resolution+ system it came as a pleasant surprise that the technology does actually work. The previous statement needs qualifying however in that Resolution+ does not really get anywhere near to reaching High Definition quality.

What Resolution+ does achieve is a noticeable improvement in the sharpness of even poor quality SD sources. Whats more, this sharpness is achieved without introducing any undesirable artefacts such as jaggedness. Even more impressive is the fact that the 42ZV555DB retains the improvements afforded by Resolution+ with fast on screen action with very little trace of smearing.

Toshiba's upscaling technology has one Achilles heal however. When any kind of graininess is present within an SD source (ie low quality analogue) Resolution+ tries to enhance it along with the rest of the picture; which can and often does present a horribly over processed outcome.

While Resolution+ has elevated the Toshiba into the leading pack of LCD TV's whose abilities with SD material are amongst the best, the same can't be said for its black level ability. There is no hint of greyness to the screen but there is no subtle graduation of greyscale detail that comes with the better plasma and LCD screens.

The 42ZV555 ups the ante again however with a stunning High Definition performance. The combination of a Full HD screen and Toshiba's picture processing wizardry makes for one of the most involving HD pictures we have seen. The depth clarity and detail that the screen is able to reproduce is at times transfixing.

Demonstrating the 42ZV555DB's all round competence colours are vivid without becoming over saturated. Subtle areas such as flesh tones are never anything less than wholly realistic.

Conclusion

Toshiba's 42ZV555DB has demonstrated a technology which successfully enhances a Standard Definition source. The result is not comparable with HD but good enough (with a more than competent performance in all areas) to make this screen a serious contender.

http://img142.imageshack.us/img142/3892/trustedtxp42x10.jpg

Standard definition fare via the in-built Freeview tuner was surprisingly good. Of course here the HD Ready nature of this TV is a help rather than a hindrance, since the source image is not being scaled as dramatically as it would be on a 1080p screen. However, I did notice some of those slightly suspect colour tones that John mentioned while enjoying the fruits of Freeview. Skin tones suffer the most, with pretty much any actor or presenter looking like they've fallen asleep on a sun bed.

To be fair, most Freeview channels tend to be pretty ropey at best, and the TX-P42X10 seemed to reign in its colours somewhat when watching standard definition via DVD.

Verdict

As far as picture quality, design and features go, the TX-P42X10 is not Panasonic's finest hour. However, when it comes to value for money, this set, like the TX-P50X10, beggars belief. It may not be Full HD, and it may not offer the last word in plasma picture quality, but if you're on a budget and want a screen that will do justice to your high definition sources, the TX-42X10 is well worth considering.

http://www.trustedreviews.com/tvs/review/2009/03/29/Panasonic-Viera-TX-P42X10-42in-Plasma-TV/p1



http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/1645/trustedtxp42s10.jpg

First, I'm happy to find that it's a Full HD model - no mean feat with a 42in plasma TV. In fact, Panasonic remains to date the only manufacturer that's managed to supply us with a 42in plasma screen containing the 1,920 x 1,080 Full HD pixel count.

Verdict

If you're in the market for an affordable 42in Full HD home cinema screen for a dedicated - i.e. very low lit - viewing room, the P42S10 is definitely worth considering. But while it delivers a typical Panasonic black level master class, and certainly has its moments, it's not quite successful enough in all areas of its picture performance to unreservedly recommend as a main living room TV. In short, if you can afford to step up to Panasonic's superior G10 range (a 42in model of which will set you back another £150 or so), I'd recommend that you do so.

Thanks to the ever-impressive Resolution+ processing, the 42RV635D is also an accomplished standard definition performer, with far more resolution and crispness in its standard def images than we usually see on LCD TVs. If I was really picky I'd say the 42RV635D's standard definition pictures are marginally noisier than they were on the 37AV635D, probably because of the greater demands placed on the Resolution+ engine by the need to upscale standard definition to 1,920 x 1,080 pixels on the 42RV635D versus the 1,366 x 768 pixels of the 37AV635D. But the difference is minor, and doesn't stop the 42RV635D from being one of the best affordable standard definition LCD performers in town.

Verdict

As well as potentially saving you a few quid in its lifetime with its reduced running power, the 42RV635D offers a more consistent performance level between HD and standard def over its cheaper AV635 siblings. As such, it's a really good value proposition, provided you aren't likely to find yourself sitting to the TV's side all that often.

http://www.cyberlink.com/downloads/support/powerdvd/patches_en_US.html

Com o patch para utilizar o CUDA NVidia em aceleradoras gráficas com o recurso, durante o uso do upscale via TrueTheater™ HD a utilização da CPU do PC é reduzida em cerca de 50% segundo a matéria alemã abaixo:



Software / 29.05.2009 / 15:31

CUDA-Patch for PowerDVD 9 is available for download

Less CPU usage with enabled DVD scaler "TrueTheater HD"

So far, PowerDVD 9 video acceleration of graphics in conjunction with the software scaler TrueTheater HD use. With the free CUDA patch that is now available for download, changes for owners of graphics cards or onboard graphics from NVIDIA Geforce-8-Series. For ATI's Radeon is similar follow later.

The reduced utilization of the processor in its own tests of CyberLink clear. For a notebook with a 2.4-GHz Core 2 Duo (P8600) and Geforce 9600M GT decreased the CPU load at TrueTheater activated during playback of DVD-movie "Star Wars - Episode IV" from 47 to 24 percent. For a demo DVD from Cyberlink it fell from 66 to 31 percent.

For a desktop PC with Core 2 Duo processor E6600 with 2.4 GHz and a Geforce GTX 260 decreased the CPU load at the Star Wars film from 51 to 28 percent. In the demo DVD, the CPU utilization is no longer at 54 percent but at 25 percent.

PowerDVD 9 charged accordingly after applying the patches CUDA-CPU systems, which are equipped with Geforce less, which, according to CyberLink, the heat, energy consumption and fan noise can be reduced.

The CUDA-Patch is on the CyberLink website for free download is available.

Toshibinha 32" 720p (Resolution+) do mercado europeu. (Uma dessas ia bem aqui no mercado brasileiro, já que as 32" tendem a ser as "29" tubão 4:3" da nova geração" em termos de volume de vendas...)



http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/1498/32av635d.jpg

This might seem a rather trivial way to start a review, but you just don't get illuminated logos on TVs costing less than £400. Such niceties are always reserved for costly premium models, to make sure no casual onlookers can be in doubt that such TVs are 'special'. Yet, as I write, I'm looking at Toshiba's 32AV635D: a 32in LCD TV available for just under £395. And the Toshiba logo along the bottom edge is definitely glowing at me.

The reason I've decided to make such a big deal out of this merely aesthetic issue is simply this: that it provides a neat visual encapsulation of the TV's uncanny ability to perform above its price in almost every area. For instance, the rest of the TV's design beyond that luminous logo looks anything but cheap in its glossy black finish and strikingly angular lines. Then there are the 32AV635D's connections, which remarkably include a startling four HDMIs, a dedicated D-Sub PC port, and even a USB jack for playing back digital photos onto the TV's screen.

The good times continues to roll with the discovery that the 32AV635D houses a Meta Brain inside its slender body. This, if you've missed other recent Toshiba reviews we've carried on this site, is the groovy marketing 'cover-all' name for a suite of video processing options that includes Active Vision II and Resolution+.

Of course, hot specs will only get a budget TV so far. But while it's certainly far from perfect, the 32AV635D also performs better than you'd imagine possible too.

Inevitably, any assessment of a new Toshiba TV's performance positives has to kick off by restating once more how well Resolution+ works. The way it manages to sharpen up even quite grubby standard definition sources from either the analogue or digital tuners, while also keeping a firm lid on video noise levels, really is outstanding. In fact, it makes the TV by default the best standard definition picture performer I've seen below £400. Or maybe £500, come to that.

Verdict

The 32AV635D doesn't have enough prowess with the higher definition things in life to make it a must-have screen for movie buffs. But then to be fair, given its £395 price tag and relatively small 32in size, the home cinema cognoscenti is hardly this TV's intended market.

Considered more sensibly as a screen aimed at the budget buyer looking for either a good living room TV to partner predominantly standard definition sources, or a cheap TV for a second room, the 32AV635D has way more to offer than most, maybe all, of its similarly priced peers.

Agora gostaria que fosse num software de conversão para edição de material SD para HD com formato 4/3 sendo convertido para 16/9, pois tendo muitos DVDs de filme Super8 e VHS, ficariam sensacionais!!!

A review of the Toshiba Regza 32AV635 LCD TV

The Toshiba 32AV635 has a great solid design with a matt black frame and stand to match. It looks quite a standard LCD TV compared to some of the designs we have seen lately from LG and Sony for example. However, for some this is the design that appeals as it is strong and bold and looks great on its stand although not to seamless wall mounted.
http://www.unbeatable.co.uk/articles/image/toshiba%2042av635.jpg

Features
The new AV635 range from Toshiba has been rammed full of features including their MetaBrain which is a newly developed processing chip that acts as the TV's brain and operates all other features to perform to the best of their ability. Resolution+ displays standard definition images at near High Definition by improving the clarity and sharpness as well as making images more lifelike and natural.AutoView intelligently works with the lighting within the room and adjusts the TV's backlight accordingly to create the best viewing experience. Active Vision II is on board too along with 18,000:1 Dynamic Contrast ratio, a Full HD Ready 1080p resolution and 4 HDMI's . Toshiba is doing its bit for the environment too by including a Full Power Down feature to save your carbon footprint and money in your pocket, as well as making this model an EcoPanel consuming less power while retaining high image quality.

Performance
We first notice how well the Toshiba 32AV635 displays standard definition images and makes them look extremely sharp and clear, thanks to Resolution+. This does work really well and definitely provides a near HD image for a lot less money than a Full HDTV. Colours were reproduced extremely well too with vibrancy and texture and blacks were impressive too. We thought that the sound could have been improved slightly with it all sounding a bit dull and lifeless, but hooking up our home theatre system soon corrected this and brought films to life.

Overall Opinion
The Toshiba 32AV635 is good at producing effortlessly impressive image that are very close to HD standards. At such good value for money and for a great performance, we would highly recommend this model in comparison to other brands at this price and size.

Toshiba intros the LED backlit SV670 REGZA TVs, and two mundane TV lines

by Matt Burns on June 10, 2009

http://www.crunchgear.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/06/55sv670u.jpg

Toshiba is releasing three new lines of LCD TVs. The only one you care about is the SV670 LED line up though. The other two series, XV648 and ZV650, are just your standard top-tier LCDs TVs. But the SV670 might be something special.

The SC670’s are powered by LEDs with local dimming that should create a stellar picture. Toshiba says that this set, with it’s LED magic, can achieve a 2,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio without sacrificing the white brightness. Plus, it’s loaded with everything a top of line LED LCD should have including, 4 HDMI ports, 240Hz screen, SD card slot, and PC input.



TOSHIBA BRINGS INDUSTRY-LEADING PICTURE QUALITY TO HOME THEATER WITH ITS FIRST SERIES OF LED TV

Toshiba introduces LED TV incorporating FocaLight technology with Local Dimming, and ClearScan 240 motion enhancement, demonstrating best-in-class picture performance

Digital Downtown, New York — June 10, 2009 — Toshiba America Consumer Products L.L.C. (“Toshiba”), a market leader in LCD TVs, today announced that it is now shipping its premium REGZA® HDTV Series, including the highly acclaimed ZV650 LCD TV, and state-of-the-art SV670 LED TV. These new series combine the most advanced picture technology with stunning designs, creating a highly immersive viewing experience that improves and extends home entertainment in new and exciting ways.

REGZA models set themselves apart with a litany of cutting-edge picture technology features such as the new FocaLight LED Backlight with Local Dimming for superlative picture contrast, ClearScan 240 motion enhancement with Backlight Scanning for amazing picture clarity with fast-motion video, and the enhanced REGZA Engine with PixelPure 5G 14-bit video processing, Resolution+ super resolution technology, and AutoView histogram controlled automatic picture adjustment.

To ensure that the sound quality is as enjoyable as the picture quality, Toshiba has also included new Dolby Volume sound leveling, and Audyssey EQ. Toshiba is the first TV company to incorporate new Dolby Volume, a technology that solves a real-world problem by utilizing human psycho-acoustic algorithms to ensure a consistent volume level, even during commercials or when changing channels.

REGZA SV670 – The Toshiba LED Difference

The SV670 Cinema Series LED TV Series is the next generation of REGZA, and the next generation of LED TV. While some LED TVs utilize standard edge LED, the SV670 incorporates superior FocaLight Full Matrix LED with Local Dimming. The full matrix creates better brightness uniformity. More importantly, the local dimming allows deep blacks without sacrificing peak white brightness for an all-new level of picture quality with a previously unattainable 2M:1 dynamic contrast.

A new level of picture quality deserves a new level of design, so the SV670 series is the first to incorporate the Deep Lagoon Design with the Infinity Flush Front. Inspired by nature, Deep Lagoon evokes the image of sand disappearing below the surface of calm shores. The unique Infinity Flush Front then adds an edge-to-edge anti-reflective front panel, reminiscent of an infinity pool. Together, these new design elements create a stunning appearance that stands out on a sales floor, and will accentuate any home décor.

The SV670 is available in 46-inch and 55-inch screen sizes (measured diagonally at 46 inches and 54.6 inches respectively).

Toshiba em busca de processo de fabricação de 16nm.

Atualmente chips de memória estão com processo de fabricação de até 30nm segundo a matéria.

Essa é uma pesquisa constante dos fabricantes, visando redução de consumo de energia/dissipação de calor.



Toshiba on track for 16nm process

Hardware
By Andrew Thomas
Monday, June 15, 2009 06:05

Kyoto, Japan - Japanese electronics giant Toshiba is heralding the return of germanium in a new semiconductor process that promises to be viable at 16nm - roughly half the size of today's state of the art technology.

While memory chips can currently be produced at 30nm and logic circuits at 42nm, Toshiba claims to have made a breakthrough in the use of strontium germanide to produce metal-insulator-semiconductor field-effect transistors, or MISFETs, at 16nm or below.

Germanium has long been known to offer the potential to build ever-smaller devices, but poses more implementation problems than silicon, which is rapidly approaching its design limit in terms of current handling capabilities.

Toshiba says its new process involves the use of strontium germanide as an interlayer and is evaluating the process to design 16nm chips and smaller. The company will present a paper on the process at the 2009 VLSI Symposia in Kyoto, Japan later this week.

Renesas, super-resolution software product for mobile devices

2009/06/15

Renesas Technology is June 15, for devices such as mobile phone, a super-resolution technology to realize clearer images in high definition and is expanding to fit screen resolution images, its 32-bit CPU "SH" Core can do it using the "SH-resolution version of the software" product, announced in 2009 to 10 delivered.

The software, the company's mobile phone application processor "SH-Mobile series of" mobile devices and "SH-MobileR Series", "SH4AL-DSP" "SH-4A" through the use of core products, for example, QVGA (320 × 240 pixel) images equivalent to one-segment of the VGA (640 × 480 pixels) to enlarge the image without the blur, it is possible to create a sense of realistic images in high definition. Also, without additional hardware, new voice processing system for image super-resolution capabilities, able to shorten the development time and smaller system.

Toshiba 37AV635D review
The Toshiba 37AV635D's low price hides some impressive technology

http://mos.techradar.com//Review%20images/What%20Video/WHV%20348/WHV348.gtindepth.tosh-218-85.jpg
Toshiba's 37AV635D is a simple-looking TV with complicated upscaling innards

Toshiba's 37AV635D has two major things going for it. First, at £550 it's astonishingly cheap. Second, it's got a brain. Or a Meta Brain, to be precise.

Meta Brain is actually the name given to a combination of picture processing tools: Active Vision II, and Resolution+.

Of these, Resolution+ is easily the most interesting. This powerful engine has been proven to do a strikingly potent job of improving standard-definition pictures, adding detail and sharpness while keeping a lid on video noise.

Active Vision II is a more wide-ranging system targeting everything from colours to contrast, and, though not as revolutionary as Resolution+, it's certainly capable of nudging up picture quality.

The 37AV635D's unexpectedly good connectivity, meanwhile, includes four HDMIs, a USB port, and a PC jack. And its onscreen menus enjoy an astonishing array of picture tweaks, including a full colour management system, and an AutoView preset option that automatically adjusts pictures in response to an assessment of both the light level in your room and the content of the image (most TVs consider these two separately).

You can also adjust the gamma levels, black/white level balance, and noise reduction routines. In other words, the 37AV635D provides the sort of flexibility generally only found on TVs costing twice as much.

Performance

As hoped, the Resolution+ processing really delivers with standard-definition fare. Provided you set it no higher than its mid level, it does a startlingly clever, clean job of adding resolution and clarity to Freeview or Sky broadcasts, leaving them looking more 'HD' than they do on any other budget TV we've seen.

Pity, then, that the 37AV635D actually looks softer than most when showing high definition. Another problem is that while the 37AV635D's black level response is adequate for normal TV viewing, it's found rather wanting by very dark film scenes. Depth-creating shadow details are in short supply, and a grey mist hangs over anything that should look black.

However, with authentic, vibrant colours and solid motion handling getting things back on track, the 37AV635D has to be a temptation for unambitious, cash-strapped buyers looking for a TV to get the best from predominantly standard-definition sources.

The 37AV635D's sound, for the record, is acceptable for a budget TV, but nothing more. Its speakers don't distort or rattle, but they don't hit any great heights of clarity or power either, meaning sound seems a bit trapped during loud, dense sound mixes.

Toshiba President Hints at Supporting Blu-ray
Posted June 24, 2009 07:41 AM by Juan Calonge

At the annual shareholder meeting of Toshiba Corporation today, outgoing president Atsutoshi Nishida did not rule out the possibility of selling Blu-ray products. In a new pragmatic vein, Nishida said: "It makes no sense to decide not to enter the Blu-Ray market simply because we lost the DVD-format war. We cannot change the fact that we lost, but we would like to keep our options open."

Nishida said that BD recorders, in particular, appear to be a viable option. They are quite successful in Japan.

When Toshiba conceded defeat in the format war in February 2008, it said that it would not make any Blu-ray products and has reaffirmed that position several times since. But Nishida's latest remark appears to indicate that Toshiba is considering reversing that decision in light of the significant growth in the market for these products.

Nishida is to step down as President today. As expected, the shareholders approved the appointment of Corporate Senior Executive Vice President Norio Sasaki as the new chief executive.

Toshiba 42RV635 review
Budget MetaBrains for all with the new Toshiba LCD TV

http://mos.techradar.com//Review%20images/What%20Video/WHV%20349/WHV349.gtindepth.tosh1-218-85.jpg
The Toshiba 42RV635 has a MetaBrain to process images and does a very good job with SD sources

Considering it costs just £750, we're pleasantly surprised to find the 42RV635 boasting not one but two potentially exciting features: an environmentally friendly panel and a MetaBrain.

The eco panel operates at far lower power levels than those found on the company's cheaper AV635 models. And MetaBrain is the fancy name given to a suite of picture processing technology including Toshiba's Active Vision II and Resolution+ systems.

The former works on multiple picture elements, such as colour, contrast, detailing and motion control, while Resolution+ makes standard-definition look startlingly sharp via techniques derived from Toshiba's PC Cell processors.

More good news finds a good looking chassis complete with illuminated Toshiba logo, no less. And the connections don't let the side down, including as they do an impressive four HDMIs and a JPEG-friendly USB port.

The 42RV635 is remarkably flexible for its money, too, with loads of picture tweaks – including a full colour management system – housed within its onscreen menus.

Performance

This sense that the 42RV635 is a bargain continues to grow once you clap eyes on the TV's standard-def pictures. For Resolution+ continues to deliver SD results that precious few premium priced TVs can match, let alone other budget models.

Standard-definition pictures look impressively sharp and detailed, and this extra clarity is achieved without creating the sort of video noise that besmirches the SD performances of so many rivals.

The 42RV635 also recreates HD images with noticeably more clarity and detail than Toshiba's lower resolution LCD TVs. Concerns you might have held about the eco panel potentially harming picture quality prove unfounded, as the low-power panel seems to help to produce a more convincing black level than its less efficient siblings.

There's still a little blueness in parts of the picture that should be black, but it's not seriously distracting. The black level improvements help colours look more convincing during dark scenes too, and prevents them from looking so one dimensional.

The 42RV635D's biggest issue is the way pictures lose colour and contrast quite drastically if watched from any sort of angle. It also has to be said that although SD pictures are excellent, those produced by Toshiba's cheaper, non-full HD sets are fractionally better still.

The 42RV635D's sound, meanwhile, sometimes succumbs to wince-inducing harshness during loud action scenes. But the speakers at least pack more punch than those of many affordable flat TVs.

Primeiro player Blu-ray Toshiba até o final do ano? Boa. :aplauso:

Vamos ver se até lá o título deste tópico deverá ser renomeado para "Toshiba - Estratégias/Tecnologias para o mercado de PC/TV/DVD/Blu-ray"...



Toshiba support for Blu-ray format imminent, recorder and player planned
HCC News Team - 19 July 2009 - 9:55am

Toshiba is expected to pledge allegiance to the Blu-ray flag in a matter of days. Japanese analysts are now predicting that the Corporation will officially confirm its support of the format, some eighteen months after pulling the plug on rival HD DVD.

The company will most likely announce a Blu-ray recorder for the Japanese market, probably for release before the end of the year, and a Blu-ray player for the rest of the world.

The move, which was predicted by www.homecinemachoice.com on June 25, follows a statement made by Toshiba chairman Atsutoshi Nishida at a company shareholder meeting in Tokyo, at which he indicated that the company was reconsidering its position on the format. One quote had Nishida stating: ‘It makes no sense to decide not to enter the Blu-ray market simply because we lost the DVD format war. We cannot change the fact that we lost.’

In May, 66.4 per cent of all video recorders sold in Japan were Blu-ray recorders. According to new figures from the Digital Entertainment Group (DEG), sales of Blu-ray software in the US alone were up 91 per cent during the first half of 2009. US Blu-ray Disc hardware sales exceeded two million units over the same period, bringing the total installed base of Blu-ray devices to nearly 11 million units.

‘The overwhelming satisfaction expressed by consumers with regard to Blu-ray shows great promise to the industry's economic future and we are also optimistic regarding their appetite toward digital technologies,’ says Bob Chapek, Chairman, DEG and President of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Toshiba may surrender to Blu-ray, finally

Consumer Electronics

Monday, July 20, 2009 00:40

Chicago (IL) – Toshiba may finally concede in the high-def disc format war if we believe a media report claiming that the company may roll out its first Blu-ray player before the end of the year. Of course, if true, this was not so much a technology issue as the company has had access to Blu-ray products since early 2006, but a strategic and certainly emotional decision to give in to the format it so hard tried to beat.

Consider it the final phase in the HD format war. Toshiba may be releasing its first ever Blu-ray player, after having dropped its own contender, the HD DVD format, in February of last year, and trying to pitch an enhanced DVD player as a cheap alternative to Blu-ray late last year. Japan’s Yomiuri newspaper was reporting last week that Toshiba is now preparing the BD 18 player for a 2009 release.

The article apparently had been removed by the publication without comment by the time of this writing.

The release of a Toshiba Blu-ray player has been a question of when, not if. The company announced the shutdown of HD DVD on February 19, 2008 and has repeatedly stated since then that Blu-ray players are pricey, but has remained quiet about its Blu-ray product plan otherwise. Mainstream Blu-ray players have broken the $300 barrier in 2008 and are now close or below the $200 mark, apparently convincing Toshiba that there is not enough room for a premium DVD player equipped with its “eXtended Detail Enhancement” XDE technology. And it seems that Toshiba is finally over its $1 billion HD DVD adventure.

From a technology point of view, the production of a Blu-ray player has never been an issue for Toshiba. Back in January of 2006 we reported that Samsung would be producing Blu-ray players through Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Korea (TSST Korea), a joint venture between Toshiba and Samsung. Toshiba holds 51% of that business, Samsung the remaining 49%. TSST Korea was founded in April of 2004 as a subsidiary of TSST.

Back in 2006, we were told that TSST is an "independent company" that Toshiba understands as being a developer of both formats in a "neutral position." But TSST has been focused on products that were in line especially with Toshiba's product strategy: For example, the company announced a slim HD DVD drive in September 2005, long before the actual introduction of HD DVD players. Even if TSST Korea seemed to have catered to Samsung's needs with Blu-ray players, it was clear that Toshiba is covering its bases just in case HD DVD would fail. By the way, Sony did the same through a joint venture with NEC, which guaranteed the company access to HD DVD manufacturing equipment.

Toshiba has come a long way and may enter the Blu-ray market when there is still room to claim its stakes. According to the Consumer Electronics Association, unit shipments of Blu-ray players will jump 112% this year, reaching nearly six million. Even as prices drop, revenues are expected to top $1 billion for the first time, representing an increase of 48% over 2008.

Comentários sobre o BRAVIA ENGINE 3 da Sony. (o Kaká mesmo após a transferência do Milan para o Real Madrid continuará sendo garoto propaganda da Sony).

Kaká & Sony (ainda na época do Milan)
http://www.youtube.com/user/braviainmotion



Sony talks up its new Bravia engine, and AC Milan's Kaka ads to continue

By Patrick Avenell

SYDNEY, NSW: The newly released Sony Bravia Z-series includes the new Bravia Engine 3 as the driving force behind this LCD panel. Sony Australia visual display product manager, Jan Ergen, told Current.com.au how this new engine is improving image quality and, in turn, retail sales.

“The engineers have worked on three major areas,” said Ergen. “Basically, it’s to do with picture quality, and delivering the best picture quality on the market.”

“One is in the area of colour, the Bravia Engine 3 produces a more true to life range of colours in a very realistic manner. The second area is in contrast: it enables the TV to develop a very true-to-life contrast. Thirdly, in association with Motionflow technology, it brings to the TV the smoothest picture ever.

“We’ve got other technologies along with Motionflow, like image blur reduction, which actually smooths out the blur in the picture, which may have been captured by the camera at the point of filming, and all those technologies are integrated through the Bravia, developing the smoothest picture ever as well as the best contrast and the best colour reproduction.”

The new Z-series, which went on sale yesterday, is to be promoted by Sony’s global advertisements featuring Brazilian football prodigy, and property of Jesus, Kaka. Ergen confirmed that these advertisements will continue, despite Kaka being filmed for the spots wearing an AC Milan playing strip. Kaka has since left Italy to join Real Madrid.

Ergen could not provide any information on whether these advertisements will be reshot at some stage with Kaka wearing the famous white strip of the Spanish football giants.

Sony BRAVIA ENGINE 3 mandando bem com material de definição standard. :aplauso:



Indeed, the Bravia Engine 3 processing, coupled with other picture enhancements, ensures that the screen delivers fine detail and beautifully clean colours no matter what the subject matter.

Of course, images don't look as eye-poppingly sharp and noise-free coming from the integrated Freeview tuner as they do from a hooked-up Blu-ray player or Sky HD box, but I enjoyed excellent results with standard DVDs, making this a good choice for viewers still watching a lot of SD.

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/televisions/plasma-and-lcd-tvs/sony-kdl-40w5500-604070/review



"Aunque ya se está experimentando con otras tecnologías, el Blu-ray es de momento más que suficiente"

Con la mirada puesta en prestaciones como el refresco Motionflow de 200 hercios, Tim Page -responsable de tecnología y marketing de Sony Europa- conversó recientemente con QUESABESDE.COM sobre lo que la compañía nipona ofrece en el presente y lo que está preparando para el futuro. El motor Bravia Engine 3, el bajo consumo energético y nuevas aplicaciones como AppliCast esbozan la actual estrategia de Sony, que sigue defendiendo a capa y espada la vigencia del Blu-ray. Por Joan Piella.

¿Hasta qué punto mejora la calidad de imagen el Bravia Engine 3 comparado con su antecesor?

Básicamente, ofrece imágenes mucho más brillantes al tiempo que conserva los detalles en las partes más oscuras. Se ha mejorado tanto el contraste como la reducción de ruido.

Trends in High-Quality Imaging Technologies and Toshiba's Approach
WATANABE Toshiaki

In recent years, TV sets and PCs equipped with a large display have become widespread, and there is increasing demand for higher-quality images. In response to these circumstances, it is important to create new algorithms both for coding large-volume video contents efficiently, and for increasing subjective image quality before displaying them.

Toshiba has been developing a variety of high-quality imaging technologies such as effective compression methods, resolution enhancement methods, and methods for improved smoothness of motion and contrast of objects. We are making continuous efforts to improve performance, and to produce a synergistic effect for optimal performance by integrating each method and adjusting the parameters.

Multiframe Super-Resolution Technology Using Subpixel-Shifted Images
TAKESHIMA Hidenori/ KATO Nobuhiro/ KANEKO Toshimitsu

When playing standard-definition video contents such as DVDs on high-definition television (HDTV) sets and notebook PCs equipped with a large, high-resolution liquid crystal display (LCD), the quality of the magnified video images has been insufficient due to the performance limit of the conventional image upscalers based on linear filters. In recent years, expectations have been focused on a super-resolution technology to enhance the quality of magnified video images in the field of image processing. In practice, however, it is difficult to apply this technology to products because it requires very high computational complexity.

To overcome these problems, Toshiba has developed a one frame reconstruction-based super-resolution technology and incorporated it into the REGZATM series digital HDTVs and the QosmioTM series audiovisual (AV) notebook PCs in 2008. We have also been engaged in the research and development of a multiframe super-resolution technology using subpixel-shifted images toward practical applications for higher image quality.

Alguns comentários sobre os sistemas “Meta Brain PRO™” e "POWER meta brain™" da Toshiba.



Image Reproduction Technologies for High Picture Quality
SUMIYOSHI Hajime

The advent of digital high-definition broadcasting in recent years has made it possible for high-definition contents to be easily accessed. Highquality image processing is advancing in the field of LCD TV due to the adoption of various technologies including full high-definition television (HDTV) pixel resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), wide-range color reproduction, 10-bit gray scale, 120 Hz frame rate up-conversion panel, and so on. Since high-definition contents are being increasingly viewed on digital HDTV services, a real HDTV world has appeared in which image reproduction technologies have become more important than ever.
Toshiba has been continuing to focus on these image reproduction technologies. As part of these efforts, we have developed the “Meta Brain PRO™” high-definition image-processing engine and incorporated it into the REGZA™ digital LCD TV, thereby realizing the optimal images for every scene.


Advancements in Digital TV Technologies for High-Quality Image Processing
YAMAUCHI Himio

Flat-screen TVs, such as liquid crystal display (LCD) and plasma display panel (PDP) models, have rapidly disseminated in recent years. With the progress of production technologies and lowering of prices, consumers are tending to select TV sets with larger screen size. At the same time, there is increasing emphasis on high picture quality since high-definition contents can be easily accessed by means of digital high-definition broadcasting, next-generation DVDs, and so on.
To meet the demand for high-level picture quality suitable for such large-screen and high-definition TVs, Toshiba has developed the POWER meta brain™ image-processing engine and incorporated it in the REGZATM digital LCD TV. The POWER meta brain™ features a variety of digital process technologies, supporting the high picture quality of the REGZA™.

A Apple tinha contrato com a Samsung no fornecimento de chips de memória para os iPhones/iPods e fazia pressão na Samsung para que ela adquirisse a Sandisk...



Why Apple's forcing Samsung to chase SanDisk
By Owen Thomas, 4:20 PM on Wed Sep 17 2008, 6,022 views
http://cache.gawker.com/assets/images/34/2008/09/340x_custom_1221682032502_iphone-si-teardown-2.jpg

Samsung has launched a hostile $5.9 billion offer for SanDisk, a rival maker of flash-memory chips, which SanDisk has rejected. Toshiba, which manufactures chips in partnership with SanDisk, is considering a blocking bid. The posturing is typical: SanDisk says the bid undervalues the company, while Samsung executives retort that it is "full and fair." Leave aside the deal theatrics: Why does Samsung want SanDisk?

Simple: It needs to bulk up to contend with the might of Apple, one of the largest buyers of flash memory.
Samsung has supplied the memory chips for Apple's iPhone since its launch last year. Before then, Samsung sold Apple memory for its iPod line, and continues to do so today. Apple is a huge customer for Samsung — so huge that it can command deep discounts, and tie up an enormous amount of Samsung's manufacturing capability. When Apple first launched its flash-memory iPod Nano, it locked up enough production to keep rivals off the market for months. (Even Samsung and SanDisk tried to launch me-too clones of the Nano, to no effect.)

Regulators may block Samsung's SanDisk bid. But they ought to keep an eye on Apple, too. Antitrust cops tend to spend all their time watching for monopolies — sellers who wield undue influence over a market. They should crack open their investment glossaries and look up "monopsony" — the condition that exists when a buyer dominates a market.

Toshiba também curtindo um som do U2?: "Even better than the real thing" http://www.highdefforum.com/images/smilies/headphones.gif :bD

Os sistemas BRAVIA ENGINE 2 PRO e BRAVIA ENGINE 3 das tv´s Sony BRAVIA prometem melhorar a qualidade da imagem SD e também FullHD.
http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1807509&postcount=7

Parece que a Toshiba resolveu ir no embalo para procurar melhorar a imagem FullHD também...(Bem, além da utilização do Resolution+ para isso, sei lá, pode ser que sejam usados também simultaneamente outros recursos do sistema MetaBrain da Toshiba, como por exemplo o Active Vision II...)
http://www.highdefforum.com/739588-post205.html

Até os modelos Toshiba anteriores com Resolution+ o recurso era aplicado em material SD e HD até 720p para upscale, mas comenta-se nesta análise da Trusted Reviews com o modelo Toshiba REGZA 37RV635DB sobre a aplicação do Resolution+ também em fontes FullHD, incluindo Blu-ray...

Só mesmo vendo com os próprios olhos para ver como essas soluções da Sony e Toshiba funcionam com material FullHD proveniente de Blu-ray...


http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/8964/37rv635db.jpg

Toshiba has a reputation for producing feature-packed LCD sets at relatively affordable prices, and it continues that tradition with the RV635 series. This range is among the first to incorporate Toshiba's Meta Brain, which isn't a character from a 1950s sci-fi movie as the name suggests but an all-powerful single-chip processing solution.

But before we get to that, let's take a second to drink in this 37in set's lovely looks. Clad in the gloss black finish currently fashionable among LCD TVs, the set oozes class without really pushing the boat out. Under-screen speakers keep things nice and compact, while the Toshiba logo below the screen lights up when the set is switched on, which will no doubt split opinion but we think it makes an eye-catching embellishment. It's perched on a fetching swivel stand too.

And if you want lots of connections, you've come to the right place. The back panel is equipped with three HDMI inputs for your HD kit, as well as component video, PC and two SCART inputs. More connections can be found on the side, including a fourth HDMI input (impressive at this price), a CAM slot for adding pay TV channels and a USB port, which lets you view JPEG photos from a flash memory drive using the Media Player feature.

But let's get back to Meta Brain, the umbrella term for a group of processing technologies that sets out to deliver the best possible image quality no matter the source. Among them is Resolution+, which upscales SD pictures to HD resolution and brings them closer to HD levels of sharpness by enhancing edge detail and textures. It's worked brilliantly on previous Toshiba sets and we're hoping for similar levels of success here - and as an added bonus, Resolution+ can now be applied to hi-def pictures as well as SD ones (previous sets disabled it when they detected a 1080p source) so we're eager to see the results.

Another string to Meta Brain's bow is Active Vision II processing, which works to improve the four key areas of the picture - contrast, colour, movement and detail. AutoView also falls under Meta Brain's jurisdiction, which analyses room lighting and content and adjusts the LCD backlighting accordingly to deliver the optimum viewing experience. On the latest XV series sets, Meta Brain also governs Dolby Volume but this feature isn't found here.

As for performance, the Toshiba's picture quality is impressive - as long as you've got Resolution+ turned on. Watch high-definition material like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button on Blu-ray without it, and the picture is softer than we normally like our HD sources to be. Yes it has an unmistakably hi-def quality, but it's nowhere near as sharp or well-defined as it could be.

But turn it on and the picture snaps into focus, emphasising the delicate facial detail and subtle textures within the movie's beautiful scenery. Edges are harder, and there's an extra depth to the picture that makes it much more compelling.

The same goes for standard definition material from DVD or the built-in Freeview tuner, which look exceptionally crisp and detailed with Resolution+ activated. Switch it on and off and you can see the dramatic improvements it makes. On the downside, it can emphasise noise in the picture on particularly bad quality material (so avoid ITV3 and VHS) but give it a decent source and the results are astonishing.

Verdict

With a generous set of connections, alluring features and excellent Resolution+ assisted picture quality, the 37RV635D is an absolute bargain, particularly if you can get it for the sort of prices we found online. Of course had Resolution+ not been on the spec sheet we might have been telling a different story, as its picture quality is decidedly average without it. But its over-reliance on this technology isn't a problem - we say if you've got it, flaunt it.

It’s been remarked that while there are now several good Blu-ray players in circulation, few of them are also good DVD players – in other words, their performance at upscaling SD material for display on HD screens leaves something to be desired. So if you’re choosing a TV mainly for its performance with broadcast HD material or Blu-ray, don’t forget that you will also want to watch DVD on it. More to the point, you’ll also want to watch broadcast TV, and since that is mostly still in SD, how will your fabulous HDTV cope with that?

Toshiba’s 42ZV555D is one of a range of Regza-brand LCD TVs claiming to have resolved the dilemma by offering Resolution+ technology; it aims to deliver top-class performance with HD pictures, but also to be able to squeeze impressive quality out of standard-definition using clever edge enhancement and contrast processing...

Muito boas essas noticias sobre estas TVs com MetaBrain e Resolution+.

Interessante esta estrategia da Toshiba de incrementar a imagem da TV ao invés do Player!!!

É isto possibilita empregar qualquer Player de BD ou DVD e melhorar substancialmente a qualidade da imagem especialmente para DVDs que ainda devem reinar por muito tempo!!!! Muitos anos não há dúvida e é isso que a Tosbiba pensou!!!

Sure you could import them just to stunt on your Monster Cable owning friends, but somehow we suspect most will be waiting for these to hit Monoprice, Blue Jeans Cable and the like (http://www.engadgethd.com/2006/04/04/where-to-get-a-v-cables/), oh, and for equipment that can actually take advantage of their extra capabilities (http://www.engadgethd.com/2009/07/22/3d-arc-and-ethernet-capable-hdmi-1-4-hardware-announced-still/).

Toshiba vai lançar cartão SDXC de 64Gb. :aplauso:


Toshiba to Launch World's First 64GB SDXC Card
Hardware
By Andrew Thomas
Tuesday, August 04, 2009 05:21

Irvine (CA) - Toshiba is to launch the world's first 64GB SDXC Memory Card compliant with the new UHS104 SD Memory Standard. The company also has new 32GB and 16GB SDHC cards supporting the new standard which allows read speeds of up to 60MB/sec.

Samples of the new SDXC cards will be available this November, with samples of the new SDHC cards following in December. Volume production of both types is scheduled for Spring 2010.

The company says the SDXC and SDHC cards are the first to meet the SD Memory Card Standard Version 3.00, UHS104 published earlier this year, which offers write speeds of up to 35MB/sec, making them suitable for applications such as digital SLRs and camcorders that require high bandwidths. Toshiba says it will be possible to download a 2.4GB video file in 70 seconds.

Pricing was not revealed, although the cards will weigh in at 2.1 grams.

Análse da Techradar com a LCD Toshiba 32AV635.

Diferente da Toshiba 32RV635DB, essa não é FullHD, mas também possui Resolution+ para upscale de fontes SD.


Toshiba 32AV635 review
Can this value 32" Toshiba HDTV impress the videophiles?

Getting any TV of this size for £425 seems a fair deal to us. But when that TV has a brain like the 32AV635's, our bargain-hunting antennae go into overdrive.

MetaBrain is a combination of Toshiba's Active Vision multipurpose video processing for boosting picture elements, plus the Resolution+ upscaling technology.

The latter draws on techniques developed for Toshiba's cell processors to add more detail to standard-def sources, while also reducing video noise – and we're very happy indeed to find it on such an affordable TV.

It also carries an impressive four HDMIs; a USB slot for JPEG playback; a startlingly flexible colour management system; separate, multi-level normal and MPEG noise reduction systems and even the facility to adjust the underlying gamma level.

Performance
At first, though, the pictures don't look as if they do justice to those impressive specifications. We immediately noticed how low on brightness pictures are relative to some rival screens. This means, too, that dark scenes are short of shadow detail and so appear slightly hollow.
Other problems include the occasional rogue colour tone and a loss of contrast and colour if you watch from an angle.

But the longer we spend with the 32AV635, the more we see beyond these initial foibles to the strengths behind them – the most striking of which is its standard-definition performance, because the Resolution+ engine makes a great job of upscaling Freeview broadcasts to the screen's HD Ready resolution, without exaggerating noise. No other budget television can match the 32AV635 in this respect.

Colours look richly saturated, too, and are actually pretty natural for most of the time; it's only during very dark scenes where those rogue tones crop up.

Also good is the TV's black level response, as dark corners come up surprisingly devoid of LCD's common grey mist problem, making the lack of shadow detail slightly easier to bear.

Motion handling is respectable for a cheap TV without 100Hz, too, with only minimal blur and judder.

HD images don't look as crisp as they might, but they still look hi-def, and that's probably as much as you could reasonably expect for £425.

Predictably, for its price tag, the 32AV635 doesn't add any particularly spectacular audio to its generally likeable pictures. Bass is in short supply and trebles can sound harsh. But again we return to the fact that even merely passable audio is more than acceptable for the 32AV635's money.

Toshiba 37RV635D review
Toshiba's Resolution+ to the rescue on this feature-packed LCD

http://img338.imageshack.us/img338/9145/whv350tosh37main42090.jpg

The 37RV635D TV is the latest high-end addition to Toshiba's RV LCD TV series, which blends cutting-edge features with stylish looks at affordable prices.

The most significant of the new features is MetaBrain, which is a single chip that controls a range of picture processing technologies.

These include the Resolution+ mode that has been designed to bridge the gap between standard and hi-def material by boosting detail and edge definition; Active Vision II processing, which enhances colour, movement, detail and contrast and AutoView that maintains the optimum image settings by analysing the content and the surrounding light conditions in the room.

Picture quality

On the whole, the 37RV635D delivers enjoyable rather than incredible pictures. It's at its best with HD material, doing a solid job of reproducing the detail-packed 1080p Blu-ray transfer of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

The procession of wrinkly faces and exquisite scenery is sharp enough at first, but look closely and there's a faint aura of softness that stops the set pulling you into the picture as the best LCD sets can.

Unlike last year's ZV models, though, Toshiba hasn't disabled Resolution+ for hi-def material, so you can boost the sharpness of 1080p images. And doing so sweeps away that softness and brings BD images up to scratch.

The scene in which a naked nursing home resident raises a flag in the garden as the rain lashes down provides the perfect example – the house in the background, the surrounding trees and the drops of rain are all suddenly thrown into crisper focus with defined edges when Resolution+ is activated.

Blacks still don't plumb plasma-like levels of depth, but are good enough. The set's colours are also well judged, particularly where skin tones are concerned and tonal gradations are smooth.

Standard-def material is a mixed bag. The Office on DVD via Scart and HDMI looks noisy and gauzy in places over both connections. Resolution+ does a great job of sharpening up detail, but can exaggerate artefacts (such as the mosquito noise surrounding The Office's main title text). But movies on DVD fared much better, with less visible noise and a far deeper, richer results.

Freeview channels depend on the quality of the original broadcast, so you need to use Resolution+ judiciously; crank it up to the +5 setting on a poor-looking channel and it'll emphasise the artefacts, but on a quality one it produces some stunning pictures.

The £700 price tag for this feature-packed set seems reasonable enough, not least because you get Resolution+ processing into the bargain. Overall the 37RV635D is another solid, easy-to-use TV from one of the most reliable brands in the business.

Toshiba Applies to Join Blu-ray Disc Association
10 Aug, 2009

Tokyo—Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) announced today that the company has applied for membership of the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) and plans to introduce products that support the Blu-ray format.

As a market leader in digital technologies, Toshiba provides a wide range of advanced digital products, such as DVD recorders and players, HDTVs and notebook PCs that support a wide range of storage devices, including hard disk drives (HDD), DVD, and SD Cards. In light of recent growth in digital devices supporting the Blu-ray format, combined with market demand from consumers and retailers alike, Toshiba has decided to join the BDA.

Toshiba aims to introduce digital products that support the Blu-ray format, including BD players and notebook PCs integrating BD drives, in the course of this year. Details of the products, including the timing of regional launches, are now under consideration. We will make announcements in due course.

Japan's Toshiba joins Blu-ray camp, post-HD-DVD
Mon Aug 10, 2009 9:37am EDT
http://www.reuters.com/resources/r/?m=02&d=20090810&t=2&i=11178240&w=192&r=2009-08-10T083732Z_01_BTRE5790NYP00_RTROPTP_0_DVD

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan's Toshiba Corp (6502.T) said on Monday that it will join the Blu-ray Disc Association -- its former enemy in a bitter format war -- to make blu-ray players by year-end to tap demand for high-definition home movies.

Toshiba pulled the plug on its HD-DVDs last year, conceding defeat to the Blu-ray camp, led by proponents Sony Corp (6758.T) and Panasonic Corp (6752.T).

Toshiba, whose digital products segment reported a nearly 65 percent tumble in profit in the year that ended in March, is trying to raise market share and cut costs as it fights increasing price competition in PCs and TVs.

It will now procure key Blu-ray parts from other companies to make Blu-ray players and recorders, as well as PCs with Blu-ray drives.

Entrevista com Olivier van Wynedaele da Toshiba europa sobre Toshiba & Blu-ray.

Mesmo aderindo ao Blu-ray, o desenvolvimento de tecnologias de upscale continua, em fontes SD para HD e também para o upscale de fontes FullHD para 2k/4k.


Interview: Toshiba Responds to Blu-ray Move
Author Gordon Kelly
Published 10th Aug 2009

It's only Monday and already potentially the biggest news of the week has arrived: Toshiba adopts Blu-ray. I had a brief chat with Olivier van Wynedaele, assistant general manager of marketing and consumer products at Toshiba Europe, to find out more.

It's an obvious question, but why now?

"It's an obvious answer but because we want to manufacture Blu-ray products. We have had our eye on Blu-ray since HD DVD and have seen the format mature and prices have come down making products more affordable. There's also the development of BD Live, something which brings essential online capabilities and offers something beyond a purely physical format - so it became time to consider it. Especially in the UK, Japan and US where it is taking significant shares of the market even if it remains well below DVD."

Was there market pressure to enter the Blu-ray sector?

"We are currently the DVD market leader, we want to secure this on Blu-ray. It will support sales of our TVs particularly where bundles are increasingly offered to consumers for a High Definition TV and Blu-ray player. Valuable and long term customers must be recognised. This was our strategy with HD DVD and now profile 2.0 brings the same online benefits to Blu-ray and that interests us for development of Internet enabled devices."

Blu-ray drives in laptops must also be a major driver in this?

"The laptop market is actually not proven for Blu-ray yet, the DVD drive is still hugely dominant and market growth is largely in the netbook area which has little need for it. But it is definitely a developing sector and we are a top three manufacturer of laptops in Europe so we see its potential, especially for our Qosmio line before it evolves down other product lines."

Does this mean the end for Toshiba's DVD upscaling technology? You had previously pushed this as an alternative to High Definition optical discs.

"The development of upscaling technology will continue in all Toshiba drives and DVD products. We do not want to give the impression it is competing directly against Blu-ray. It is a necessary technology to get the best from standard definition content and it will also be important in the future when upscaling 1080p to next generation 2k or 4k resolutions occurs so it is important to continue. Not that I'm saying that will be necessary for a while."

Do you think your experience with HD DVD can be beneficial to your approach to Blu-ray?

"Yes. HD DVD has already given us experience with other solutions for online services and we understand its needs. We will only consider devices that can be connected to a network and we have many areas of cross compatible expertise."

Do you anticipate Blu-ray having a shelf life comparable to DVD? Many argue it is just a short term bridging solution for High Definition on-demand content."

"It is impossible to tell the time frame for these things. All the time we see new market developments and new media, but for the foreseeable future Blu-ray will be very important. We have been very specific in waiting to come to market. We see the pricing as crucial to our timeframe and of course we are always working on many different technologies, but the time for Blu-ray is coming now."

When can we expect to see the first Toshiba Blu-ray products?

"I cannot get into specifics but before the end of the year for sure. We will look to introduce standalone Blu-ray players and Blu-ray equipped laptops. In the UK HDTV and Blu-ray player bundling deals are also important so we may look at creating packages there."

In hindsight was the HD DVD and Blu-ray format war necessary?

"We thought it was the best technology at that time. The best solution for manufacturing and for immediately available Internet capacities. But HD DVD is done, rest in peace, and it is only Blu-ray. Yes it was worth the fight at the time, but now we move on."

Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB review

http://reviews.cnet.co.uk/i/product_media/39043393/image1/200x150-42rv635db.jpg

Reviewed by: Ian Morris

Reviewed on: 6 August 2009

We like:
Reasonable price; good Freeview picture quality; decent sound; hi-def video and gaming performance are both very good

We don't like:
Resolution+ upscaling is still fairly pointless -- the TV produces a terrific picture with it turned off

CNET UK judgement:
Very good Freeview and high-definition performance really sold us on the Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB. It's sensibly priced, sports a decent screen size and is easy to use. It's an ideal TV if you want a hassle-free set that won't baffle you with options but still has enough controls to enable you to get the best-possible picture quality.

Brainy
The 42RV635DB also features something that Toshiba calls the 'Meta Brain'. This silly-sounding device looks after functions like Resolution+ (Toshiba's upscaling technology), the Active Vision picture processing and Dolby Volume.

We really couldn't care less about Resolution+. We can see the difference it makes to a TV picture, and we aren't impressed. It's really all about edge enhancement, and, while you may like the result, we think it can do more harm to a picture than good. Still, such things are always subjective, and we'd encourage you to experiment with the settings and find out what suits you.

Conclusion
The most negative thing we can say about the Toshiba Regza 42RV635DB is that it's rather boring. We rue the day that Toshiba took its ultra-thin-bezel TVs out of production. These looked amazing, and would still do so today, as there really isn't much competition for thin bezels what with all the fuss about making TVs that are just 9mm or so thick. Still, Toshiba tells us it's not practical to continue with these designs, especially in a recession, so that's the end of that.

If you want a solid, high-quality TV that will do justice to pretty much any kind of video you care to throw at it, this is quite possibly the TV for you. It's cheap enough to appeal to the budget-conscious and those who don't think a TV should cost as much as a week in the south of France. We like this TV, and we think you will too.

Análise da Home Theater Magazine com a Toshiba Regza 42ZV650U



http://www.hometheatermag.com/images/archivesart/909fo.tosh1.jpg

Resolution+ is a feature that’s designed to help SD material look a bit more like HD. As far as we could see, it merely adds a trace of edge enhancement that serious videophiles will want to avoid.

Conclusions

The panel results make it hard to be upbeat about the Toshiba. Still, there appears to be a good set in there trying to get out. It’s hard to fault the overall color quality—or the color adjustments that can help a good calibrator get there. While the set’s resolution only drew middling praise, several of the sets were tightly clustered in their scores for this category. I don’t think any potential buyer will be unhappy with the Toshiba’s color or resolution, particularly on mid-level and bright scenes.

The black level and shadow detail are another matter. But as with Vizio and LG, Toshiba is now introducing sets that will use LED backlighting with local dimming to improve black level and shadow detail. They should be available by the time you read this. Such sets will not immediately filter down to this price range, but they should still be relatively affordable (at press time, the first Toshiba 46-inch LED local dimmer was priced at $2,300). Hopefully this development will answer our concerns.

Toshiba Regza 32AV635DB Review

Reviewed by: Alex Jennings
Reviewed on: 14 August 2009

As the recession continues to bite, TV manufacturers are having to work ever harder to sell their wares. We've found the 32-inch, HD Ready Toshiba Regza 32AV635DB LCD TV selling online for the eye-poppingly affordable price of £350. Even more remarkably, the 32AV635DB is really quite good.

Splash of panache
In some ways, the 32AV635DB looks its money. Its lines are fairly unimaginative, and its finish looks and feels plasticky. But, in a cheeky two-fingered salute in the general direction of Sony, the Toshiba logo on the centre of the bottom edge is illuminated, adding a dash of panache to the otherwise entirely unremarkable exterior.

The 32AV635DB goes way beyond its budget call of duty with its connections. For starters, it's got four HDMI ports where we would only really have expected two or, at a push, three. Plus there's a dedicated D-Sub PC port, and even a USB jack able to pass onto the screen JPEG photo files from USB storage devices.

Even more startling is the presence on the 32AV635DB of Toshiba's Resolution+ technology. This is a clever processing system that's designed to deliver superior upscaling of standard-definition images to the screen's 1,366x768-pixel, high-definition resolution.

http://www.cnet.co.uk//i/product_media/39043466/image2/300x225-32av635d_angle.jpg
Its design is fairly unimaginative, but the 32AV635DB offers surprisingly good picture quality

Joining Resolution+ on the processing front is Toshiba's always respectable Active Vision II system, which targets everything from colour and contrast to motion and sharpness.

The 32AV635DB's rather bland on-screen menus play host to yet more unexpected features. Our explorations uncovered, among other things, gamma adjustments, two types of noise adjustment, and even a quite sophisticated colour-management arrangement, whereby you can tweak the hue and saturation levels for each of the six key video-colour components.

Accomplished pictures
At first, we found ourselves slightly disappointed by the 32AV635DB's picture performance, for one simple reason: once they'd been calibrated, images just didn't look very bright compared with those of most LCD TVs.

Once you've got used to this -- and you will get used to it, as long as your living room isn't particularly sun-drenched -- you'll start to notice that, in many other ways, the 32AV635DB's pictures are surprisingly accomplished for its price point.

Particularly outstanding compared to the budget competition are its black levels, which are far less blighted by grey clouding than expected. Then there's the 32AV635DB's standard-definition performance. Thanks to Resolution+, it reproduces material from its Freeview tuner with more sharpness and less picture noise than many TVs that cost three times as much. Also, colours look saturated and likeable, and there's nothing like as much motion blur as we'd usually find at the Toshiba's price level.

But it's not all good news. Apart from the brightness issue, the 32AV635DB's budget nature manifests itself in other ways. Its picture becomes desaturated if watched from much of an angle, for instance. Plus, colours during dark scenes can look a touch unnatural at times, HD pictures don't look as sharp as we know they can, and, while black levels are deep, dark scenes can also look slightly short of background detail.

The 32AV635DB's audio is nothing to write home about either. While voices sound quite believable and there's a fair amount of sound mix detail to be heard, bass levels are scarcely deep enough to do justice to a Blazing Saddles fart, never mind a Terminator 2: Judgment Day nuclear explosion.

Conclusion
If you're looking for a 32-inch TV on a tight budget, you'd be crazy not to at least give the Toshiba Regza 32AV635DB an audition. While it might not have the chops to scare most premium-priced TVs, it's streets ahead of any other sub-£400 32-inch TV that we can think of.

Modelo de aço inoxidável da Toshiba traz combo de TV e DVD

http://info.abril.com.br/imagem/fwa/1248447811075_58.jpg

O novo combo TV e DVD player da Toshiba em aço inoxidável chega ao mercado gringo em setembro com display de 18,5 polegadas.

Com uma sigla impossível de decorar, 19LV612U, a tevê-DVD tem resolução nativa de 1 366 por 768 pixels, 300 nits de luminosidade, raio de contraste de 1 000:1, portas HDMI e VGA, além de entrada para fones de ouvido.

O destaque, contudo, não está nessas especificações, mas na função conferida à ela pela Toshiba. De acordo com o fabricante, o modelo é excelente para equipar sua cozinha. De fato. Esse jeitão de aço inoxidável combina lindamente com a nova moda entre os eletrodomésticos gastronômicos. Mas se você quiser colocá-la em seu quarto não há nenhum problema.

O modelo de aço inoxidável terá etiquetas de 349,99 dólares.

Pois é André,

Seria muito bom que o título da F1 desse ano viesse para o Brasil, coisa que parece que está ficando a cada prova mais distante...(+ vamos continuar torcendo, lógico)

A Semp-Toshiba Brasil está em ritmo de Barrichello (ou melhor, de Piquet Jr...) enquanto a Toshiba UK está em ritmo de Button...
http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1677597&postcount=1886

Aliás, falando do Button, ele tem estrela no "Butt" mesmo, e diferente do Barrichello (http://tazio.uol.com.br/f-1/textos/10193/), quando ele senta no cockpit ela não se apaga não, muito pelo contrário, fica é bem acesa. :bD

Mas como a Toshibinha 32" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showthread.php?t=89190) parece que está agradando e a Semp-Toshiba que dominava no "tubão" (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1689560&postcount=1890) vai ter que procurar aumentar a sua fatia no segmento LCD, acompanhar (pelo menos em parte (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1675733&postcount=1885)) os lançamentos do exterior seria uma boa...

Quanto à comparação de qualidade de visualização de material SD em tv´s de Plasma e LCD Resolution+ com upscale, seria interessante.

As plasmas se dão melhor com material SD se comparado às LCD "standard", mas existem plasmas que possuem também algum tipo de processamento específico para upscale SD > HD?

Enfim uma vitória. :aplauso:

Análise da Pocket-lint com a Toshiba REGZA 37RV635D (Resolution+)



http://img526.imageshack.us/img526/9760/57158680.jpg

Full Review

25 August 2009 - When it comes to LCD TVs, Toshiba is one of the most dependable names in the business. From entry-level up to flagship, it has a canny knack of delivering feature-packed TVs at reasonable prices – and the company’s RV series looks to follow in that fine tradition.

Throwing out some of the luxuries found on the pricier XV and ZV models (Dolby Volume and 200Hz processing for instance), the 37RV635D is designed for tighter budgets, but the appearance of core goodies like the much-lauded Resolution+ processing still makes it a tantalising proposition.

For the uninitiated, Resolution+ is Toshiba’s powerful processing technology, which enhances detail and edge sharpness to make standard definition pictures look more like high-def.

It comes courtesy of a new single-chip processing solution called MetaBrain, which also controls Active Vision II processing and Auto View – the former polishes up contrast, colour, movement and detail while the latter automatically adjusts the backlight according the content and the room lighting.

On the outside, the 37RV635D’s understated black bezel and illuminated Toshiba logo make it an attractive set, and its connections are equally eye-catching. There are four HDMI inputs, three on the back and one on the side, plus Component, PC and two Scart inputs. It’s topped off by a CAM slot for pay TV and a USB port, which can be used to view JPEGs from flash drives.

The set’s 1920 x 1080 resolution is ideal for Blu-ray playback, as is the set’s ability to handle 24p signals. Those who like to tweak the picture to perfection will find lots to play with, including gamma level adjustment and various noise reduction modes.

Toshiba has also worked hard to drive down electricity consumption on its latest TVs, and the Eco Panel used here drinks around 20% less than previous Tosh panels – good news not only for your electricity bill but also for the environment.

One thing we love about Toshiba TVs is their inherent user-friendliness, and the 37RV635D is no exception. The menus have had a revamp this year and look marvellous, with bright colours, smart logos and foolproof architecture, and the remote’s intelligent button layout makes them easy to control.

Onto performance, and the success of this set’s pictures depends largely on whether or not you’ve got Resolution+ turned on. At first we disabled it and high-definition pictures looked decidedly disappointing, lacking that definitive crispness you look for from a 1080p source.

But turn it on and everything snaps into sharper focus – edges are harder and fine detail is punchier. The difference is so dramatic, in fact, that it makes you wonder why Toshiba didn’t just make this the regular picture.

After waving its magic wand over standard-definition Freeview pictures, they look pleasingly crisp. If the source material contains a lot of noise then the processing will emphasise it, but good-quality channels look terrific.

In other areas the Toshiba does a decent job – blacks are good with only a touch of grey mist here and there, colours are rich and realistic, dark scenes are nicely handled and motion is smooth.

Sadly the Toshiba doesn’t defy expectations with audio – energetic action scenes sound as anaemic as we feared they would, lacking the low-frequency oomph needed to get the heart racing. It’s much more at home with less strenuous material like the news or EastEnders, delivering dialogue with a clear, controlled tone.

Verdict
Thank goodness for Resolution+. Had it not been included, we might have had a fairly unremarkable TV on our hands. But this effective picture tech saves the 37RV635D from LCD ignominy, bringing high- and standard-definition pictures up to scratch. Decent features, plentiful connections and a reasonable price tag are further reasons why you should give it a chance.

E aí Semp-Toshiba, que tal aproveitar que a marca "Semp-Toshiba" ainda tem muitos defensores entre os consumidores (graças principalmente às tv´s CRT 4:3 + as excelentes campanhas publicitárias (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showpost.php?p=1689560&postcount=1890)) e colocar no mercado brasileiro produtos recentes lançados no exterior como por exemplo o novo dvd player Toshiba XDE600 e algumas tv´s LCD com Resolution+ ?



ABA divulga pesquisa Top Brands Força de Marca
Estudo avalia as marcas mais lembradas e as mais defendidas pelos consumidores
Por Redação, do Mundo do Marketing | 26/08/2009
pauta@mundodomarketing.com.br

Este mês a ABA (Associação Brasileira de Anunciantes) realizou em parceria com a Top Brands Consultoria e Gestão de Marcas, a sexta edição de uma pesquisa que avalia a força das marcas baseada na lembrança e fidelidade do consumidor em diversas categorias. O estudo Top Brands Força de Marca foi conduzido pela Quest Pesquisa de Mercado e Marketing com o objetivo de fornecer às empresas uma oportunidade de aprimoramento da gestão de suas marcas.

Os principais tópicos e os resultados obtidos na pesquisa serão apresentados durante o Fórum Internacional ABA Branding 2009, que acontece hoje e amanhã em São Paulo. “Esta pesquisa foi criada para estimular e incentivar a discussão sobre a gestão e evolução das marcas no mercado brasileiro”, diz Marcos Machado, sócio-diretor da Top Brands. Com 1640 entrevistas via telefone, a pesqusia foi feita nas cidades de São Paulo, Porto Alegre, Curitiba, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Recife e Salvador.

A amostra foi dividida por sexo, idade e classe social e foram avaliadas 17 categorias de produtos e serviços para que pudessem ser feitas comparações entre diferentes setores. As categorias avaliadas foram automóvel (fabricante e modelo), bancos, cartões de crédito, leite condensado, televisores, jornal, biscoitos, telefonia fixa e móvel, planos de saúde, postos de combustível, companhia aérea, emissora de TV, revistas, provedor de internet e supermercados.

Pesquisa classifica consumidores por grupos
De acordo com Machado, o estudo aborda ainda a confiança, a satisfação e a intenção de recompra dos consumidores, para que se tenha uma análise mais profunda da real força das marcas. A pesquisa oferece também o Índice de Fidelidade ou Adesão à marca com base na satisfação e intenção de recompra.

Para obter melhor resultado, os consumidores são classificados em quatro grupos: os defensores - que compram, recomendam e defendem a marca -; os satisfeitos - que voltam a comprar, mas não defendem a marca necessariamente -; os vulneráveis, que podem voltar ou não a comprar; e os opositores – estes, além de não voltar a comprar tendem a criticar e a boicotar a marca.

“É preciso estabelecer uma conexão com o consumidor, pois esta é a forma de fazer com que ele seja fiel neste mundo em que está tudo commoditizado”, explica Machado. O estudo mostra que nem sempre a marca com maior índice de defensores é a Top of Mind da categoria, o que mostra que a análise deve ir além da lembrança de marca.
http://www.mundodomarketing.com.br/images/materias/topbrands2009.jpg

Volkswagen está na mente de 40% dos consumidores
No Brasil, um dos mercados ou categorias que mais atraem o consumidor é o de automóvel. E a primeira marca na mente dos brasileiros é Volkswagen com 40% de Top of Mind, com o modelo Gol apresentando 25% de lembrança, número maior que o total das outras montadoras com todos os seus modelos. Apesar de perder o posto de marca com maior número de defensores em 2008 para a GM, este ano a VW voltou a ocupar a posição.

“O grande problema é que muitas marcas não tem conexão emocional com o consumidor. Na medida em que o funcional não está sendo percebido, o emocional ganha espaço. É o caso de Skol, que foca no emocional e por isso é líder”, compara Marcos Machado em resposta à pergunta do Mundo do Marketing durante o ABA Branding 2009.

Na categoria de bancos, o Itaú lidera o Top of Mind em 2009. Já a Caixa Econômica Federal aparece como a marca que possui maior índice de defensores na categoria, lugar que pertenceu ao Bradesco na edição 2008 da pesquisa. “Ano passado, alguns bancos privados afirmaram que o cliente da CEF seria menos exigente, uma visão preconceituosa. Cabe a esses bancos tratar de entender seus próprios clientes e satisfazê-los”, afirma Machado.

Lembrança X defensores
A Philips novamente é a “Top” na categoria Televisores com 20%, um ponto a mais que a edição anterior, enquanto a LG, que estava logo atrás em 2008, declinou na lembrança do consumidor. Com mais defensores que todas as marcas da categoria está a Semp Toshiba. Na categoria Revistas, destaque para Veja que ocupa a primeira posição com 44% de Top of Mind.

Entre os cartões de crédito, Visa continua na frente dos concorrentes apesar de apresentar índice menor que o de 2008. Isto prova a eficácia e uma fragmentação da concorrência do setor, principalmente com o crescimento de novos cartões vinculados a redes de varejo. As marcas de planos de saúde continuam sendo lideradas pela Unimed, porém o Bradesco Saúde apresenta maior número de defensores, tomando o posto da Sul América.

Na web, os provedores lutam pelo posto de mais lembradas e o UOL aparece na frente dos demais com 16%, percentual igual ao de 2008, e também lidera o ranking dos mais defendidos. Já a Telefonia Móvel tem a competição mais interessante entre as empresas do setor. Este ano a TIM chegou a 26% e lidera no Top of Mind, passando a Vivo que, junto a Claro e Oi estão bem próximas da líder. O equielíbrio é tanto que a Oi e a Claro aparecem como as mais defendidas pelos consumidores.

Montanha de dinheiro da Apple não para de crescer
Fortuna no caixa da empresa cresceu 27% em um ano e somava US$ 31,1 bilhões até 27 de junho. Principal responsável é o iPhone.

http://applemania.info/wp-content/uploads/TioPatinhas3.jpg

“Até 27 de junho a Apple tinha espantosos US$ 31,1 bilhões em caixa e em investimentos, 27% a mais que um ano antes. A posição do caixa da empresa é a mais forte dentre todas as empresas de tecnologia, calcula Brian Marshall, analista da Broadpoint AmTech. (Não é a maior, estritamente falando, pois a Cisco Systems recentemente anunciou ter US$ 35 bilhões em caixa e a Microsoft aparece listada com US$ 31,4 bilhões, mas ambas têm dívidas que as colocam abaixo da Apple, que está livre de dívidas, diz Marshall)”, relata Don Clark no blog do The Wall Street Journal.

Segundo ele, o caixa da Apple cresceu 27% em um ano principalmente por causa do perene e enorme fluxo de dinheiro gerado pelo iPhone e, embora o iPod e o Macintosh não sejam máquinas de fazer dinheiro tão ativas, a taxa de crescimento deles não se iguala à do iPhone. Além disso, diz Clark, ao contrário da Microsoft, a Apple optou por segurar seu dinheiro (a MS preferiu pagar dividendos aos acionistas), o que lhe permite investir no próprio negócio.

“Em seu último balanço financeiro, mês passado, o diretor financeiro Peter Oppenheimer disse que a prioridade dos investimentos da Apple ‘continua sendo a preservação do capital, o que nos serviu bem no atual ambiente’. Por outro lado, a Apple pode usar seu dinheiro em ações estratégicas que suas rivais não podem. Oppenheimer disse que a empresa recentemente pagou US$ 500 milhões adiantado à Toshiba por um futuro suprimeiro de chips de memória flash NAND, que é um componente crucial no iPhone e no iPod e cuja baixa no fornecimento ou grandes variações de preço podem causar problemas para outros fabricantes de hardware”, observa Clark.
“Que mais a empresa pode fazer? Marshall sugere que ‘o banco Apple’, como ele a chama, seria esperto se investisse num ataque maior ao mercado de tecnologia para empresas. Algumas empresas e agências de governo já estão comprando iPhones em larga escala, diz ele, e ele espera que a quantidade cresça ainda mais conforme os funcionários pressionarem as gerências para oferecerem os populares aparelhos”, diz Clark.

Sabia que a Apple ainda não postou suas fichas no BD apesar de fazer parte do consorcio? Esta aguardando para ver como o mercado reage. Sua aposta inicial é na loja do iTunes baixando filmes HD para compra ou aluguel. E aos menos no EUA esta dando certo! E Tem ainda a novidade do CBHD e como isto podera afetar o mercado HD em larga escala. ou ao menos nos mercados emergentes que é o que mais interessa.

Semp Toshiba divulga produtos em placar eletrônico
Vila Belmiro ganha novo placar que mostrará produtos da patrocinadora do Santos
Por Thiago Terra, do Mundo do Marketing | 24/08/2009

A Semp Toshiba quer atrair a atenção dos torcedores do Santos Futebol Clube para o placar do estádio da Vila Belmiro, no litoral de São Paulo. A patrocinadora do clube lançou um novo placar eletrônico que, além de mostrar o resultado das partidas, apresentará os novos produtos Semp Toshiba.

O placar é duas vezes maior que o antigo - com 48 m² - e divulgará itens de áudio, vídeo e informática da marca. Com o novo aparelho, o estádio espera poder obter destaque em modernidade para se tornar uma das sub-sedes da Copa do Mundo de 2014.

O mercado russo sim é visto pela Toshiba atualmente como uma das prioridade no mundo...:aplauso:



Toshiba has won Russia's market with their latest achievements in the segment of tele-video technology.

Toshiba considers Russia's market is one of the priorities in the world and has made many efforts for the prompt submission of new technologies and products. This is reflected in the increasing share of the company in one of the largest markets for electronics and home appliances - LCD TV market. For example, in the 1 st quarter of 2009 the company took 3rd place with a share of over 9% in the number of LCD televisions sold to consumers (according to GFK). As a result, the company plans to gain share over 10%. For this summer 2009 Toshiba is in Russia market a new line of LCD TVs, consisting of 33 models, ranging from the most simple, high-tech finishing.

Olha lá o player Blu-ray da Toshiba na IFA 2009.

Toshiba DBX2000 Blu-ray player

Será que esse player irá utilizar XDE ou Resolution+ para upscale de fontes SD?...


http://www.trustedreviews.com/images/article/inline/11809-bdx20001.jpg
BDX2000 Blu-ray Player

All this was merely a pre-amble, however, to the main event, that Toshiba will finally be selling a Blu-ray player. Its first effort will be BDX2000 and will of course be a Profile 2.0 player, so Bonus View, BD Live and other 2.0 features are a given. Indeed, with the Blu-ray standards (and expectations) fairly well set now, the BDX2000 is much like most players in offering support for both Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio codes, deep colour, and 1080p/24fps playback. Rather than USB, Toshiba opts for an SD card slot, which will be required when accessing any BD Live disc features.


Também será mostrado o laptop Satellite P500 com tela de 18.4".
Ele possui drive Blu-ray e faz upscale de fontes SD para "near HD" através de Resolution+.


http://www.trustedreviews.com/images/article/inline/11809-satellitep500left.jpg

Satellite P500 - Blu-ray Laptop

We'll start with that laptop, which is called the Satellite P500. It's being marketed as the ‘ultimate multimedia laptop', a claim which is borne out by the spec list. An 18.4in laptop, the P500 will come with either Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) or HD Ready (1,680 x 945) displays, up to 8GB of RAM and up to 1TB of storage split between two drives. More pertinent, however, are its multimedia credentials, with the Blu-ray drive being teamed with Toshiba's Resolution+ upscaling technology previously seen in its TVs.

Pois é isso prova uma teoria que sempre disse nem tudo que é escrito ou comentado na INTERNET deve ser acreditado!

Lembram quando, acho que foi um diretor da TOSHIBA disse que havia ficado impressionado com a tecnologia de SUPER UPCONVERSION, que deixava um DVD com uma qualidade muito acima do normal, e ai isso deu no que??? Diziam também que a TOSHIBA viria com um novo DVDPLAYER que permitiria ler midias de DVD com conteudo HD etc, várias coisas se dizia e no final das contas a unioca coisa que se confirmou, foi que depois de tanta ENROLAÇÃO a TOSHIBA aderiu ao BD e pronto!:riso:

Vai se catar se era para rodar em circulos e acabar no mesmo local que todo mundo, os caras não deveriam nem ter aberto a boca! Lança-se logo esse BDPLAYER que deve ser igual a qualquer outro e pronto!

Tanta história, tanta embromação para dar nisso! Ainda bem que não fiquei esperando o tal DVD MILAGROSO da TOSHIBA e comprei logo meu BD SAMSUNG, hoje assisto BD e AVCHD de boa!:legal:

Pois é Pipoc@,

Upscale milagroso só no "Mundo de Disney" (mundo da fantasia).

Como eu sempre disse: Uma coisa é uma coisa (upscale) e outra coisa é outra coisa (HD nativo).

Os estudos sobre upscale da Toshiba (XDE, Resolution+) visam apenas melhorar a visualização do SD (por mais que a idéia que eles passaram pudesse gerar para alguns a interpretação de algo milagroso...), assim como tecnologias de upscale de várias outras empresas. :tu:

Mas é isso aí, a Toshiba agora vai de Blu-ray em players de mesa e laptops mas continua com o Resolution+ em PC/TV e XDE no DVD player XDE600 de segunda geração (http://www.htforum.com/vb/showthread.php?p=1895375#post1895375) (não foi comentado se o player BD Toshiba usa o XDE como solução para upscale...)

Talvês o upscale em fontes SD desse primeiro player Blu-ray Toshiba não seja nem XDE, nem ABT, nem HQV e sim Panasonic...

Os players Blu-ray Sylvania, Magnavox utilizam LSI Panasonic UniPhier®.

Eu só sei de uma coisa: o tal do CHD,q é o formato chines de HD baseado no HD-DVD adquidrido da Toshiba,não faz feio não viu?
Baixei Terminator 2 em mkv de 13gb,q era a média do HD-DVD,e digo q é mto bom.Tem versão de quase 15gb tb.
Eu tenho um sample desse mesmo filme em mkv e já rodei no Oppo.O bitrate médio fica em 17-18 se não me engano...
Já to com 4 midias BD-RE da Verbatim.
Agora só to esperando aparecer o novo gravador da LG.
Enfim,o BD se tornou o padrão,porem,bem ou mal,o legado HD da Toshiba está aí.E com qualidade.

Controle remoto similar aos dos Magnavox, Sylvania, Onkyo, suporte a AVCHD, entrada para cartões SD/SDHC, ter upscale para 1080p mas não utilizar tecnologia XDE da Toshiba, são indícios que podem indicar que esse primeiro Blu-ray Toshiba pode utilizar solução Panasonic UniPhier®...mas só aguardando análises mesmo para isso se confirmar ou não...



Toshiba BDX2000 Blu-ray player set for December launch *Updated*

http://www.homecinemachoice.com/files/hcc_content/BDX2000KE_2wide.jpg
Curiously the player lacks any of the brand's XDE-branded up-scaling technology, introduced to great acclaim on it's XD-E500 DVD player. It does however upscale SD sources to 1080p. It is expected to debut as early as December, if not a tad sooner...

Blu-ray bundles
Given the cookie-cutter nature of the BDX2000, it’s a fair assumption that the new player has been sourced and badged from another manufacturer.
HCC quizzed Andrew Line, Toshiba’s UK product manager on the matter. Line (pictured) was unable to confirm if the new player was indeed an OEM-sourced product, but he noted that its principal value to Toshiba during the Christmas selling season was likely to be as a value-add to the brand's TV sales. ‘I’m anticipating that Blu-ray/LCD bundles will be very successful for us this year. We know that buyers like the idea of buying an HD source with their HD TV, and the new player is ideal for that.’

It’s likely that Toshiba will partner the BD player with its mid and high-end LCD screens. ‘Our entry-level models have been selling extremely well, but we’ll be looking at our higher-end series going forward.’ HCC also expect the Blu-ray player to be offered with the brand’s first full-array LED-backlit LCD

Dolby Makes Entertainment Vivid, Vibrant, and Visceral
Audio innovations at CEDIA offer choice, superior performance, and hours of enjoyment.

Offering More Control Over Listening Experience

Dolby showed how its technologies can make entertainment more enjoyable by giving people more control over their listening experience. The company highlighted home audio products from Anthem, ARCAM, AudioControl, Bryston, Emotiva, Harman-Kardon, Integra, Onkyo, Sherwood, and Parasound as well as HDTVs from Toshiba that use Dolby Volume to manage fluctuating volume levels.

Dolby Volume is a breakthrough audio-processing technology that provides a consistent volume level across all content sources and creates a reference-quality listening experience at any level.

“People asked for a solution to loudness in the living room and Dolby delivered. The next step is to bring the benefits of Dolby Volume to a broader audience. Today there are a variety of products available with Dolby Volume, but we’re working closely with our partners to communicate the benefits of this technology so we can offer even greater choice in the year ahead,” added Eggers.

O comentário tradicional da CNET em todas as análises que eles fazem com tv´s Toshiba com Resolution+:

"Nós poderíamos conseguir um efeito funcionalmente idêntico, aos nossos olhos, aumentando o controle de nitidez em qualquer TV".


Independente se a CNET gosta ou não do resultado do upscale obtido via tecnologia Resolution+ da Toshiba (e fica claro que eles não gostam, ou melhor, detestam...), as análises que eles divulgam sempre são muito superficiais...

Abaixo uma análise chinesa (bem detalhada) com a TV Toshiba Regza 52ZV550C (Resolution+)



Super Resolution ideas implanted 52ZV550C Toshiba LCD TV
http://jd.hsw.cn 2009-09-10

Toshiba, the world's three major chip manufacturing companies, with its excellent semiconductor technology not only enriched the world all kinds of digital products, Toshiba also has penetrated into its many product lines, this edge in an increasingly homogeneous flat particularly evident in the television market. In double-speed, multimedia, energy saving has become the mainstream technology of today's flat-panel TVs, while Toshiba has retained its original technical features. Is it that we still remember last year, Toshiba will be of great practical value of the "super-resolution for Resolution +" technology made public, which can be recovered to some extent due to digitization and compression techniques and the loss of image information, can make the number of pixels less than DVD discs, etc. The image shows fine and clear video image of technology has played no small sensation.

From the beginning of the year to now, Toshiba has not yet released its new national television. But it is said Toshiba's new LCD is currently still "brewing", the end of the year and domestic consumers. The Toshiba will launch its first LED backlit LCD TV, and equipped with the upgraded resolution + Super Resolution technology, 240Hz technology, and 14bit video processing chip. Like the Toshiba brand, expect it to friends who can enjoy the first LED TV.

http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/2072/img266611968.jpg

In addition to its Super Resolution technology, the times ZV550 series of all products used in the physical-resolution LCD screen is not only reached a FULL

HD Full HD (1920 × 1080), and have a 10bit and wide color gamut WCG-CCFL backlight and so on. Are all equipped with Toshiba's new high-quality image-processing chip, Meta Brain PRO100. The chip assembled a number of performance "Toshiba texture image" technology, including: instantaneous frequency-doubling Ying-PAL100Hz, Night Elves - dark field automatically adjusts backlight, dynamic gamma curve correction, the film vibration reduction, 5:5 film mode, smooth transition of color, 3D color management system; natural edge optimization system; Digital Dynamic oblique direction of the amendment system; full digital image processing system; Brightness / Contrast Dynamic Optimization System; 3D digital comb filter and noise reduction entire digital tracking.

High practical value for the Super Resolution technology, must have public do not understand much about the User. Super Resolution technology works is basically: First, analysis of the original image will be broken down into flat part of the screen (almost no change of color, such as sky, walls, etc.); details of the part (or messy objects varied texture, such as grass, hair, etc.) and edge part (the future King of the junction with the latter, the object edge portion) of three parts, for the platform, not do some basic processing of the faithful to restore the zoom.

Super-resolution low-resolution image processing technology into the process of high-definition images
http://img34.imageshack.us/img34/1537/img266612044.jpg

As for the edges and details of the parts, Super Resolution technology, the first of these images to zoom in order to achieve high-definition screen resolution, and through the enlarged images of the original resolution, the resolution of the functional relationship between, on the enlarged picture to reduce the compared with the original picture, there are differences in the local adoption of a "learn from each other" compensation approach to operations, to get the best images, the do the final output. "Learn from each other" compensation approach is mainly on the image around each point have borrowed to compensate for the characteristics of neighboring points, the details of their own. This treatment makes the outline of the details of the original image blurred more and more sophisticated performance.

Super Resolution feature provides one-step adjustment of 0-5

Super Resolution feature comparing the actual amplification

Large picture shows the upper part of the original image, bottom from left to right respectively, super-resolution for adjustment of step 1,3,5 contrast. Through practical contrast, objects in the details and sharpness has indeed had more obvious improvement, I believe that the technology can be forced by the current source of high-definition films to a certain extent limited by the user's convenience.

Evaluation Summary: Toshiba's this 52ZV550C uphold the stylish minimalist design, with minimal elements to maximize the expression of a humanized design concept, allowing users to watch when the "line of sight can focus on the image", while after we had detailed testing, The airplane's high-definition performance was our recognition, color temperature, 3 degrees and the screen color balance and contrast the performance of the overall quality of the screen have reached a high level, integrated in terms of Toshiba 5ZV550C is a set of high-quality viewing and high-grade design process in an excellent product.

Last year, as Toshiba's flagship product, providing a high degree of completion at the same time, Super Resolution Technology to join a lot of really allow us to appreciate "DVD era" of the heat. In order to make a variety of technical continuity, in the end of the year, carrying forward to the upgraded resolution + Super Resolution technology, Toshiba in 2009 and SV670 series of new products ZV650 may debut in China. Since the two series are Toshiba's devaluation of the LED-backlit LCD TV, will provoke a lot of consumer concerns, please wait and see.

Por que será?...Será o XDE dos gravadores diferente, proveniente de um chip/circuito diferente do "TMU655" encontrado nos dvd players XDE?

http://z.about.com/d/hometheater/1/6/R/g/xde500tmu655chip.jpg

Ou nos gravadores eles resolveram deixar somente o ajuste "Sharp ON/OFF" no XDE?...

Só mesmo vendo fotos internas destes novos gravadores VARDIA para ver os chips empregados...

Depois do gravador hdd/dvd Toshiba VARDIA RD-X8 do ano passado, o primeiro a utilizar XDE para upscale, o novo VARDIA RD-X9.

Well, it revised the XDE Now let's look at this algorithm. Basically the same as last time, ON and OFF, but can only last one was held to outline the compensation too explicit, I thought you were not in the ordinary invariant Imejienhansa and effective if it .

This revised XDE, some people seem to show it was quiet, but effective, without much to destroy the image that looks like a natural remedy. Live-action footage, but also tried to compare the animated films, there are also more clearly in contrast with the rather animated films, the effect seems to be higher.

XDE But last year, "Cell TV" was exhibited as a technology, a technology that I get better results through continued process multiple times. The feedback process at this point in time is not even half the potential output still can have the original technology. The Cell TV will be this fall, so even that is supposed to be released, this technology would be the production from there.

Toshiba pretende aumentar a participação no mercado mundial de TVs LCD dos atuais 7% para 10% no ano fiscal de 2010

Para atingir essa meta eles pretendem aumentar a presença em países emergentes como os "BRIC's" (Brasil, Russia, India, China) :legal:

Mas chega de "caramelo" por aqui hein!...Que venham junto "biscoito" e "chocolaaate"! :bD


Toshiba aims to raise share in global LCD TV market to 10% in FY 2010

TOKYO, Sept 17 (Kyodo) - Toshiba Corp. said Wednesday it will aim to raise its share in the global market for liquid crystal display televisions to 10 percent from the current 7 percent in the business year through March 2011 by increasing its presence in emerging countries.

Masaaki Osumi, president of Toshiba's Digital Media Network Company, said Toshiba also plans to expand its manufacturing facilities in fast-growth regions, suggesting Russia is one of the candidates for Toshiba's new plant.

It plans to sell 15 million units in fiscal 2010, of which 80 percent will be sold in the company's three key markets -- Japan, the United States and Europe -- and the remaining 20 percent in emerging and other markets.

''We will distribute resources for our growth strategy to expanding (our share in) emerging markets,'' Osumi said at a press conference in Tokyo.
''Sustainable growth is impossible without targeting the mass (demand) emerging countries.'' For the current business year, it plans to sell 10 million units globally, of which 87 percent are expected to be in the three key markets and 13 percent in countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China.

Osumi said Toshiba is on track to achieve its goal for the 2009 business year on the back of robust demand for TVs thanks to government stimulus measures carried out at home and abroad, including in China.

Toshiba said it has seen sales of flat-panel TVs soaring in Japan on the back of the ''eco-point'' system the government launched in May to reward purchases of environmentally friendly consumer appliances.
The company also introduced five new lines under the Regza TV brand to be put on sale from Sept. 25, which have reinforced recording functions.

The smallest 19-inch R9000 is expected to be priced at around 80,000 yen while the biggest 55-inch ZX9000 is likely to cost around 600,000 yen. (Kyodo)

O player Blu-ray Toshiba BDX2000 (provavelmente baseado no chipset Panasonic Uniphier) é o primeiro, mas outros modelos ainda devem aparecer.


Why Toshiba's First Blu-ray Player Won't Be Their Last
By Chris Boylan

The BDX2000 player itself offers a sleek design with a simple one-piece faceplate that swings down to reveal the disc tray, SD card slot and playback controls. Feature-wise, the BDX2000 offers all the essentials, including 1080p/24 and 1080p/60 output, on-board decoding of the latest surround formats including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. The player features an ethernet jack for firmware updates and to take advantage of interactive internet-based BD-Live features. In addition to CDs, DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, the unit can play back AVCHD videos such as those recorded on a digital camcorder. The unit's competitive $249.99 list price should allow it to sell well, particularly to customers who own or are purchasing Toshiba HDTVs.

When asked about the player's lineage, Ms. Sally would not reveal any details, "we don't reveal our OEM partners, but there are a number of players on the market that share technology from certain manufacturers." From a superficial inspection, I expect the player is made by either Funai or Panasonic, but it would take a more detailed review to really gauge the performance of the player. "What's important is that Toshiba customers can enjoy the full high definition experience by combining a Toshiba REGZA HDTV and Toshiba disc player." When asked about online content streaming features, Ms. Sally said that Toshiba is speaking with a number of different content providers in order to provide the richest streaming offerings on future Blu-ray player models. So while the BDX2000 is the first to bear the Toshiba badge, it certainly will not be the last.

The BDX2000 is expected to be available in November at authorized Toshiba dealers.

Meu uso principal é para Xbox 360 via HDMI, (gostei dos jogos de luta, jogos de tiro ja não achei tão legal assim) e quando chegar meu Pc novo com MB com saida HDMI, sera ver videos 720 e 1080p .mkv , blu ray e hdtv-rips.
Só fico surpreso pelo baixo numero de referencias sob a mesma no Google, ou aqui, vcs poderia m comentar um pouco sobre ela, gostaria de saber o tempo de resposta dela, vem um adesivo nela "high speed lcd response panel, mas duvido que seja menor que 8ms, se não for mais.
A atualização é 60 hertz, então sem chance de assistir blu-ray em um futuro drive rodando a 24p né, essa feature só existe em painéis com 120 hertz de atualização, não é?

jucks,

Segundo o colega Iserrano, a Semp-Toshiba informa que a tv 42XV500DA tem tela de 120Hz e tempo de resposta de 6,5ms...

Não sei se seria o mesmo caso da sua 46XV500DA...


Segundo o Suporte da Semp Toshiba aqui no Brasil, que é quem disponibiliza esta tv aqui, ela tem uma tela de 120hz e o tempo de resposta é de 6,5ms, e pelo que pude notar acredito que seja este tempo mesmo, pois as imagens que tenho visto são muito boas.

Estranho, pois essas informações (120Hz e tempo de resposta) não constam no manual...

Hands-On: Toshiba Qosmio X500 Packs Core i7, Less Flames

Toshiba’s new multimedia monster, the 18.4-inch Qosmio X500, wil rock your world–subtly. You don’t get the flame graphics that adorned its predecessor, which we think is a good thing. And yet under its somewhat tame exterior resides Intel’s new quad-core Core i7 processor and Nvidia’s new GeForce GTS250M graphics chip with a full gigabyte of video memory. Not bad for less than $1,500.

Just in case there was any doubt, Toshiba has confirmed plans to launch its halo product, the Cell (for Cell Broadband engine, similar to the one in the PS3) TV (http://www.engadgethd.com/tag/celltv), with all the LED backlit 3D GUI, 3840x2160 resolution, and DLNA streaming capabilities one could want (http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/07/live-from-toshibas-ces-press-conference/), in Japan by the end of the year. Thanks to the company's new religion (http://www.engadgethd.com/tag/toshiba,blu-ray), it will also feature a Blu-ray recorder to go along with the 1TB hard drive, though we can bet that will be axed before making its way stateside in 2010. Of course we're still looking forward to the Media Center Extender packing display (http://www.engadgethd.com/2009/01/07/toshiba-integrating-extenders-for-windows-media-center-in-new-a/) expected here some time soon, but when an executive promises the "ultimate entertainment machine" we can't help but wonder what's in store. More detailed specifications and any pricing info other than "it will be fairly expensive" are still unavailable.:legal::tu::aplauso:
