Active Vision II
Active Vision II is our acclaimed high performance picture processing system. It has been designed to produce high quality, high definition images by enhancing core elements of a television picture:
Detail: Images are now spread over a larger number of smaller pixels compared to a conventional LCD TV. This allows highly detailed images to be produced far more accurately across all colour tones.
Colour: Active Vision reproduces colours with more tones than conventional LCD televisions, producing images with reduced banding for a smoother, more realistic colour progression.
Movement: : Picture sharpness in fast moving scenes is increased, with a reduction in the jagged edges often seen on lines and fine detail.
Contrast: The continuous monitoring and automatic adjustment of contrast, enhances detail and increases the ability of the television to represent subtle shade changes.
Toshiba REGZA LCD TVs which feature EcoPanel are specially designed to consume significantly less power than a conventional LCD TV, without comprising on picture quality. Toshiba’s EcoPanel technology utilises materials of the highest possible quality and clarity to construct an LCD panel so translucent that as much as half as much light is required to illuminate it as compared to conventional panels.
A TV with a conventional LCD panel requires powerful backlights to illuminate the screen. This is where most of the power consumption comes from. By reducing the amount of light required to brighten the screen, REGZA LCD TVs with EcoPanel can deliver the same brilliant HD picture quality, with almost half the power.
With EcoPanel, you can relax knowing you LCD TV is being kind to the environment and saving you up to 45% of your TV’s energy consumption.
AutoView technology automatically adjusts picture settings depending on not only room lighting, but also the content being watched. The ambient light sensor constantly adjusts the LCD’s backlight to provide a better viewing experience. In light rooms backlight is increased, in dark rooms backlight is dimmed.
The technology eliminates the need to constantly have to adjust the backlight brightness and colour settings in order to find the best viewing experience in all environments.
AutoView means that your REGZA LCD TV will be performing to its full potential, delivering the best possible picture quality at all times.
Dolby Volume stops those annoying fluctuations in volume during commercial breaks and when switching between channels or sources such as your DVD player or games console, providing a more enjoyable viewing experience. It also provides a full and consistent sound experience at all volume levels, even low volume.
SoundNavi technology provides even stronger sound projection, enabling integrated TV speakers to powerfully direct audio to the nearest hard surface and amplify sound in the same way as freestanding TVs. You can also adjust the audio direction of TV speakers once wall-mounted.
Full Power Down
We have fitted an On/Off switch in response to the concerns expressed by many consumers who would prefer to turn their television off completely..All models are extremely energy efficient, but we take our responsibility to the environment seriously and will always do everything we can to minimise the impact our products have on our surroundings.
Between now and the end of 2012 the UK will be turning off all old “analogue” TV transmitters and switching your TV signal to “digital”. Digital TV offers new ways to enjoy your TV. You will have a greater choice of TV channels as well as access to additional features and services which will enhance your TV-watching experience
When the digital switch happens in your area, your older analogue TVs will no longer be able to pick up a signal. To keep your normal TV service running, you will need to convert your TVs to digital before your area’s switchover date.
Switching your home to digital is easy. All you need to do is purchase digital tuner and connect it to your analogue TV or alternatively, you can replace it with a new digital TV. All Toshiba LCD TVs carry the Digital Tick and come with Freeview built-in, making them the ideal option for preparing your home for the digital switch.
