CES 2013: The Toshiba 9300 Series of TVs

1:54 /

David Katzmaier gives you a rundown of the features available in the new 9300 series of Toshiba televisions.

-Hi, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET. I'm here at Toshiba's press event at CES 2013. Behind me is the 84-inch L9300 is Toshiba's 4K ultra high-definition TV, an 84-inch sized. The company is also announcing a 65- and a 58-inch member of the series, meaning it's gonna have a full three models of 4K ultra high-definition TVs shipping in 2013. These models are gonna come out in the summer. Toshiba has not announced any pricing, but we do expect them to be pretty darn expensive. The current 84-inch TVs from other manufacturers start around 20 grand. Of course, we expect the smaller screen size to be a lot less than that. We've been told they might be about half as much, but a little bit more on pricing. We haven't been able to find out yet. As an ultra high-definition 4K TV, this television has four times the pixels of traditional 1080p TVs that equals a lot better detail. Of course, that detail is really difficult to see especially if you don't have special 4K content and there is no 4K content currently available. Of course, this TV does have the ability to up convert 1080p content to 4K. So, if you have standard high def, it'll blow it up to those 4K pixels. Toshiba is also talking about their processing for that 4K conversion. It's called a CEVO processor that uses a Quad plus Dual Core system. Toshiba says it really improves the picture quality. Of course, we're gonna have to see that in action to find out for ourselves. Other features on this set include an edge-lit backlight with local dimming. The set also has 240 Hertz in all of Toshiba's new Smart TV features which include a Cloud TV server-based Smart TV system. So, all told, it's one of the most well-featured TVs we've seen this year and one of the first 4K TVs announced at CES. That's a quick look at the Toshiba L9300 series, again 84-, 65-, 58-inch ultra high def 4K televisions. I'm David Katzmaier from CNET.
