Toshiba launches 200Hz LCD TV

The Toshiba ZV600A series includes 200Hz motion control and a volume normaliser

The 55ZV600A is Toshiba's most expensive model and features 200Hz motion smoothing with backlight scanning.

The 55ZV600A is Toshiba's most expensive model and features 200Hz motion smoothing with backlight scanning.

Toshiba has released three new television ranges, including the premium ZV600A series, which uses a 200Hz frame rate to display smooth on-screen motion.

The ZV600A, XV600A and RV600A series differ in their motion handling. The entry-level RV600A does not have any frame rate enhancement and operates at 50Hz, while the XV600A series has a 100Hz frame doubling mode. The ZV600A TVs differ from the XV600A models in that they switch the backlight on and off between frames, creating the illusion of smoother motion. This is the same technology used in the LG LH50’s 200Hz mode.

Toshiba’s new televisions all feature an up-scaling technology called Resolution Plus. Originally earmarked for future television sets with 4K resolutions — that’s 4096x2610 pixels, rather than the measly 1920x1080 (1080p/Full HD) of current televisions — Resolution Plus optimises standard-definition video content for viewing on high-definition panels.

An implementation of Dolby Volume is used on the new Toshiba screens to normalise the volume of audio content being played through in-built speakers. With Dolby Volume enabled, a pre-set volume range can be chosen and any audio significantly quieter or louder will be adjusted.

All Toshiba’s new television models, from the $5169 55in 55ZV600A to the $2199 42in 42RV600A, will be available for purchase on or before 17 October.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
