Toshiba launches 200Hz LCD TV

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 recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
