Toshiba Readies Diverse, Cutting-Edge Technologies for CeBIT 2005


Toshiba announced that a special "Innovation Corner" at its booth at CeBIT 2005 would spotlight the company's latest advances in mobile terminals, network systems and audio visual technologies.

The diverse technologies and systems on display will demonstrate Toshiba's commitment to excellence and innovation in information processing, image processing and electronic devices and components.

Major Exhibits

1) Detachable Display

Networks offer ubiquitous connectivity. Toshiba adds comfort and convenience

Toshiba's detachable display adds a new level of freedom to personal computing, especially when it's configured as a stylus-operated touch screen supporting handwriting recognition. Attached to its base, the detachable display is part of a powerful notebook PC. Separated, it's light and ultra-portable, and, like a good book, allows the user to curl up in a comfortable place -- and still stay productive. It's also perfect for sales presentations and meetings, especially one-on-one, as the display can be handed from person to person, and documents and presentations edited as the display circulates. Thanks to the IEEE802.11b wireless connectivity built into the prototype detachable display, all on-screen updates are processed and displayed in real time.

2) Home AV Network

Toshiba's home network makes the living easy, whatever the season

As broadband networks and digital devices sweep into the home, Toshiba is in the forefront of linking them seamlessly in an interoperable network. Visitors to CeBIT can see how easy it can be to share music, video and pictures, in a three-part demonstration of watching TV programs wirelessly on a PC; control of AV applications from a Bluetooth(TM) enabled mobile phone; and playback on a TV of music, photo and movie files stored in a PC.

Toshiba supports the Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) in its work to develop design guidelines and an open standard for home networks of digital consumer products. The Home AV Network follows DLNA guidelines to achieve a powerful, flexible network that adds to quality of life.

3) Direct Methanol Fuel Cell (DMFC) for Notebook PCs

Ultra-portable power solution for the age of ubiquitous connectivity

Toshiba's global leadership in fuel cells is embodied in the prototype direct methanol fuel cell (DMFC) powering a PORTEGE M300, B5-sized notebook PC. The DMFC runs on a methanol-oxygen fuel mix, and generates and supplies power directly to the PC. With an energy density up to five times that of a typical lithium-ion battery, the DMFC delivers much longer continuous operation.

Methanol in a fuel cell delivers power most efficiently when mixed with water in a 3 to 6% methanol concentration -- a level requiring a fuel tank that is much too large for use with portable equipment. Toshiba's system uses methanol at a higher concentration, diluting it with water produced as a by-product of the power generation process. Methanol can be stored at a much higher concentration, in a fuel tank less than one-tenth the size of that required for a 3 to 6% concentration.

4) HD DVD Player

Superb high definition images, excellent sound, and full backward compatibility

HD DVD is the next-generation optical-disc standard that will bring high-definition recorded content into the home. Developed and supported by the DVD Forum, the industry alliance of over 230 companies from the CE, IT and content provision sectors, HD DVD's innovations include higher resolution video and audio, a suite of disc capacities for longer and shorter programs, advanced navigation, web connectivity and interactivity, plus the robust content protection technology that is a must for content providers. A single, dual-layer HD DVD-ROM disc offers 30 gigabytes of capacity, space enough for much as eight hours of high-definition movie content. And as HD DVD is based on the same physical disc structure as standard DVD, disc and hardware production are cost efficient, and it is easy to achieve backward compatibility with today's DVD.

Detailed information, including press releases and digital images of HD DVD products, are available online at the official site of the HD DVD Promotion Group: http://www.hddvdprg.com

5) HD DVD Slim Drive for PCs (Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Corporation)

The brilliance of HD DVD in a slim profile PC drive

Toshiba delivers HD DVD on the go with a multi-format slim line HD DVD drive that can read HD DVD, standard DVD and CD and write to certain DVD and CD. Developed by Toshiba Samsung Storage Technology Corporation, an optical-drive joint venture between Toshiba Corporation and Samsung Electronics Co., the drive will bring next generation high definition DVD to notebook PCs, while assuring the backward compatibility essential for users to continue to use libraries of application software on DVD and CD.
