Toshiba at CeBIT
Toshiba, the main backer of the HD DVD format, showcased the HD-XA1 player.
The player provides visual quality supported by leading-edge video compression technologies. The device includes the capability to support Advanced Navigation, also referred to as "iHD," offering interactive features.
The HD-XA1 is backward compatible, allowing users to continue to enjoy their libraries of current DVD and CD software.
The device can be connected 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).
Below, you can see the player's specifications, which may change by the time the device hits the market.
Below, are showcased some of Toshiba's new HD ready LCD TVs. Toshiba offers a complete line of HD TVs in a variety of dimensions ranging from a maximum of 47-inch screen to a a 15-inch screen.
In the picture above you can see the first high definition laptop computer with a HD DVD optical drive for the new generation of DVD discs and a high resolution display.
The Qosmio G30 notebook, initially announced at last year's CES and now showcased at the CeBIT electronics trade fair in Hannover, Germany, is the latest model under Toshiba's Qosmio range of high-end audio-video computers. The computer will retail for a price between 2,500 and 3,500 euros and will be available in all countries within a few weeks.
The G30's built-in HD DVD drive is expected to be region-free, which means that the drive will not check for region encoding, allowing it to play HD DVDs bought in the US and elsewhere. Actually, the HD DVD regional coding has not yest been decided, and the first releases will not feature any regional restrictions.
The G30 incorporates an HDCP-compliant HDMI output port and a 17in 1920 x 1200 TruBrite LCD screen ready for 1080p HD content. The display is driven by an Nvidia GeForce Go 7600 graphics chip with 256MB of video RAM. The notebook has a 2GHz Core Duo T2500 processor on board, 1GB of DDR 2 SDRAM, an 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi radio and Bluetooth 2.0.
It has also twin analogue and digital TV tuners, a Dolby Home Theater-certified audio system based on Dolby virtual speaker technology, Dolby Pro Logic II decoding and Harman Kardon speakers.
