Toshiba Demos 4K Reference Displays

Posted Thu Oct 3, 2013 at 09:00 AM PDT by

The concept Ultra HD sets are designed for use as televisions and pro-grade reference monitors.

Toshiba unveiled its concept REGZA 40V and 50V 4K televisions at the CEATEC trade show in Japan this week. The 40-inch and 50-inch UHD displays are aimed at traditional consumer use for cable and movies, as well as professional reference monitor applications.

Exact specs have not been detailed yet, but the displays feature a resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, ultra-thin bezels, and include superior color accuracy making them suitable for video and photo editing. Users will also be able to easily switch between the TV's reference mode and other more household friendly calibration presets.

The concept displays are designed to serve as a pro-grade alternative to the company's currently available consumer 4K sets, which include the 58L9300U, 65L9300U, and the 84L9300U. Pricing and availability for the 40V and the 50V have not been announced and, for now, both models are assumed to be prototypes.
