Toshiba takes wraps off extensive new LCD TV range

Twelve months after the successful launch of the inaugural REGZA series, Toshiba has now unveiled its latest REGZA range – which adds up to its largest LCD line-up yet.

The new models will be split over four new ranges: the entry-level C Series, the step-up X Series, the Picture Frame X Series, and the range-topping Z Series.

Getting into more detail on these, the C series comprises 26in, 32in, 37in and 42in models, all bearing Freeview tuners and Toshiba’s Active Vision LCD processing. All but the 26in version have two HDMIs, too. The C Series are out now, wearing a neat matt black finish, with the prices for the 32in, 37in and 42in models being around £699, £899 and £999 respectively.

The X Series, meanwhile, due to launch by the middle of this month, introduces ‘full HD’ resolution to the fray, with all three models in the range – 32in, 37in and 42in – boasting native pixel counts of 1920x1080. Each screen also has two 1080p-capable HDMIs, a Freeview tuner, and Toshiba’s Active Vision LCD processing. Impressively the HDMIs on the X series are also HDMI 1.3 jobs, and so can take advantage of HDMI 1.3 features such as Deep Colour.

The new Picture Frame models due in September introduce a remarkable new screen bezel that’s barely 1.5cm wide, and come in 40in and 46in flavours (costing around £1500 and £1800 respectively). These are full HD models too, sporting three HDMIs, digital tuners, and Active Vision processing.

Finally we come to the Z Series. Available in 37in, 42in, 47in, 52in and 57in sizes starting at £1299 for the 37in and going up to £3,499 for the 57in, these full HD models are the only ones in Toshiba’s new range to use the company’s impressive M100 ‘100Hz’-style processing system to improve the appearance of motion. They will also have three HDMIs, Active Vision processing, and a digital tuner when they launch in September.
