Toshiba Launches AV notebook PCs That Integrate TOSHIBA Quad Core HD Processor SpursEngine

Toshiba will enhance its Japanese line-up of Qosmio AV notebooks with the launch of new models, the Qosmio G50 series and Qosmio F40 series, that integrate the streaming media processing power of the TOSHIBA Quad Core HD Processor SpursEngine SE1000.

Both new series will be brought to market in Japan in late July. In parallel, Toshiba also announced the launch of the new dynabook Qosmio FX, which integrates the latest graphics processor.

Derived from the high performance multi-core technology of the Cell Broadband Engine (Cell/B.E.), and combined with Toshiba's image processing technology, the SpursEngin integrates four synergistic processing elements (S.P.E.s) and functions as a dedicated co-processor that supports the smooth handling of high definition video streams, image recognition and image processing.

The new processor is designed to remove the burden of processing high definition video data streams from CPU, and it significantly improves processing power and speeds up the handling of multiple, resource-intensive video processing tasks such as conversion of standard definition video content to high definition quality.

SpursEngine also offers support for Toshiba?s "High-resolution function" that upscales standard definition video sources and bring them to screen in high definition picture quality. This allows users to experience standard DVD video content with high definition quality.

Users viewing video on the new Qosmios can also enjoy functions such as the "Face navigation function", which recognizes and memorizes faces as they appear on screen, and displays them in an index that can be used to playback video segments featuring a specific person. "Scene Thumb" takes thumbnail snapshots of a user-recorded video, lines them up one after another, and any one can be individually viewed by running the cursor over it. "Scene Thumb" provides users with a unique approach to finding just the moment they want to view. Another feature of thumbnail search is the ability to search by highlight level and section bar, allowing viewers to home on in, for example, heavy applause during a concert video.

The high-end Qosmio G50 series also adds "Gesture Control" for gesture-based interfacing: simple hand movements captured by the PC?s integrated CCD camera, can be used to control video playback and pause, for example, without a mouse or remote controller.

In addition to the ability to upscale standard definition video to high definition quality as it records, the new Qosmios are also able to cut recording time by half, and to boost recording density by a factor of approximately eight?recording up to eight hours of video on the storage capacity usually required for one hour. This is done by real-time compression of high definition digital terrestrial broadcasts into the H.264 format during recording.

Along with the SpursEngine, the new Qosmios also integrate an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and the GeForce 9600 GT graphics accelerator.

The high-end Qosmio G50 series complement stylish appearance with an 18.4-inch LCD with 16:9 aspect ratio.

Toshiba also unveiled the dynabook Qosmio FX series, which achieve enhanced graphic processing by integrating the latest NVIDIA graphic accelerator. High speed graphic capabilities make it a good notebook PC splution for gamers.

The Qosmio series of noitebook PCs will retail in Japan in the end of July. Estimated prices are following:

Qosmio G50/98G JY330,000 (US$3,072)
Qosmio G50/97G JY290,000 (US$2,700)
Qosmio F50/88G JY250,000 (US$2.330)
