Toshiba Tours America to Promote HD DVD Players

Toshiba America Consumer Products, announced today details of an integrated marketing communications plan to launch its line-up of HD DVD players.

The Toshiba HD DVD players, models HD-XA1 and HD-A1, will be the first HD DVD players to hit the U.S. market and are expected to begin shipping to retailers in March of this year.

Toshiba will tour around 40 cities across the US in order to educate retail salespeople and provide them with support materials to aid in the sale of the HD DVD players, according to the company.

Beginning on February 20th and continuing through April, Toshiba will conduct consumer and media demonstrations, as well as sales and product training for selected electronic retailers.

Toshiba's new HD DVD players provide visual quality supported by leading-edge video compression technologies. The players include the capability to support Advanced Navigation, also referred to as "iHD," offering interactive features. Both the HD-XA1 and HD-A1 are backward compatible, allowing users to continue to enjoy their libraries of current DVD and CD software. Both models connect to HDTV sets via a High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) and output copy-protected HD content (through the HDMI output) in the native format of the HD DVD disc content of either 720p or 1080i. Standard definition DVDs can be upconverted for display at 720p or 1080i (through the HDMI output).

Expected Pricing and Availability: HD-XA1 ($799.99, March 2006); HD-A1 ($499.99, March 2006)

Toshiba also said that design specifications and dimensions of the HD DVD players are not final and and may change. In addition, a firmware upgrade is required for full interactive features, and warned consumers that certain disc, digital connection and other compatibility issues are possible.
