Toshiba to launch REGZA Z8X series of high resolution 4K ultra HD TVs for Japanese market
Toshiba will launch a new series of high resolution 4K ultra HD TVs, the REGZA Z8X series, at the end of June in Japan. The new REGZA Z8X series TVs will be available in 58-(58Z8X), 65(65Z8X) and 84-inch (84Z8) models, all with 4K LCD panel screens. All models integrate Toshiba’s newly developed Regza Engine Cevo 4K and Cinema 4K image processing system and deliver high impact 4K resolution images. The REGZA Z8X series offers a wide range of functions. Above all, Z8X upscales standard HD images from digital broadcasts and Blu-ray Discs to close to astonishing 4K-image level.
With Toshiba’s optional external flat HDD, THD-450T1, which fits onto the back of the TV, viewers can record a maximum of six selected channels of digital terrestrial broadcasting for as long as 80 hours, and quickly find and watch preferred programs. The TVs also connect with Toshiba’s TimeOn cloud service, which makes it easy to find and enjoy content, share with friends and family.
In recent years, a market preference for large screen TVs has triggered growing expectations for higher resolution TVs. In response, Toshiba developed the REGZA X3 series, the world’s first 4K ultra HD TVs and their December 2011 launch brought a new level of image quality to large screen TVs. With the new Z8X series, Toshiba introduces an upgraded high resolution image processing system that delivers even sharper, more realistic picture quality.
Toshiba REGZA Z8X series TVs will be available for approximately-84 inch model 84Z8 for 1.68 million yen($16467), 65 inch model 65Z8X for 750,000 yen($7351) and 58 inch model 58Z8X for 500,000 yen ($4896) in Japan.
