Message Text: Toshiba Europe today announced RV733 series of LCD TVs and unveiled new members of its LCD TV portfolio, the AV and LV series.

The RV series spans three models with different screen sizes: the 81.3 cm (32") 32RV733, 93.4 cm (37") 37RV733, and 101.6 cm (40") 40RV733. They will be available in March throughout Europe.

Toshiba's RV733 series sets come with a Full HD 16:9 panel with 1920 x 1080 pixels. To tap the full potential of the Full HD panels ? the vast majority of content in Europe is still in SD quality ? the RV733 TVs feature Toshiba's upscaling technology Resolution+. Powered by Toshiba's MetaBrain processor Resolution+ upscales content from standard definition (SD) sources to near high definition quality with improved edge detail and texture. The new LCD TVs feature a dynamic contrast ratio of 50.000:1.

Other features of the new series include AutoView, a feature that automatically selects the ideal image settings, such as brightness, contrast, gamma, sharpness and colour saturation during initial setup and permanently adjusts the settings according to the ambient light and the displayed content. The usage of this autoconfiguration can even reduce power consumption.

The Dolby Volume sound levelling application ensures a consistent volume level once chosen by the user, even during commercials and while changing channels. And last but not least the RV series are Toshiba's first REGZA TVs featuring SoundNavi. SoundNavi automatically adjusts the sound settings according to the way the TV is mounted and provides even stronger sound projection, enabling integrated TV speakers to direct audio to the nearest hard surface and amplify sound in the same way as freestanding TVs.

Toshiba also equipped its RV733 series with a variety of interfaces: All RV733 TVs are Wi-Fi ready for wireless connection via an USB dongle with WLAN interface. Support of Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) enables the addition of WLAN connections to the home network by a push of a button. Thanks to the DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) certification the RV733 series can share content with other digital devices in an existing home network.



In addition to WLAN connectivity, all RV733 models come with two USB and two Scart interfaces, a PC port, LAN interface, headphone output, ports for digital audio output, component video input and a DVB common interface. To receive uncompressed signals from a source device the RV733 series is equipped with four HDMI 1.4 (High Definition Multimedia Interface).

A CI+ slot (Common Interface) enables users to subscribe to different pay TV channels. When connected to a games console or a PC the RV733's Game Mode and PC Mode respectively automatically adjust the picture settings and adapt the picture to the screen format of the TV accordingly.
