IFA NEWS: Toshiba's new Regza ZF TVs have built-in cell processor upscaling

Toshiba 40ZF575

The ZF series is the first to get Toshiba's Resolution+ technology which uses a cell processor algorithm to provide greater image detail, or so the company claims.

"By employing cutting-edge image-enhancing technologies, standard-definition sources are scanned and upconverted to near-HD quality, providing viewers with crisper images that are richer in detail. The results are truly impressive, with enhanced pictures that verge on high-definition quality."

That's quite a claim, so we'll be checking out the new sets on the Toshiba stand tomorrow.

Other technical highlights of the LCD ZF range include Toshiba's Active Vision M100 HD 100Hz picture processing, Full HD 1920 x 1080p panels, support for 24fps, a claimed Dynamic Contrast ratio 30,000:1 and Audyssey Equaliser sound technology, designed to deliver a fuller sound at low volumes.

The Regza ZF series is available in 40in (shown) and 46in screen sizes, with both models having a Freeview digital tuner, four HDMI inputs and providing full support for Toshiba's Regza-Link consumer electronics control (CEC) system. UK prices have yet to be confirmed.
