Tosh To Enter OLED TV Market With Top End 65″ Model
Toshiba is set to do battle in the OLED TV market with a new 65″ 4K UHD model that local distributor Powermove claims will deliver “exceptional” sports viewing.
Their first OLED model, the 65-inch X97 will go on sale in Australia in 2018, the core panel technology of the X97 has a 4K/UHD resolution is made by LG however Toshiba engines claim that they are delivering better image quality than LG especially when it comes to fast motion or sports coverage.
Toshiba boasts that the X97 achieves a picture that “looks exactly as the movie and TV directors intended,” in part because it can show 99% of the DCI-P3 colour space. That’s a whole lot of possible hues right there.
Trusted Reviews said that the motion is handled by Toshiba’s MEMC (motion estimation/motion compensation) system to reduce blur and ghosting while the footie’s on or you’re streaming something a bit fast-paced from the built-in Netflix app.
Their smart features includes ScreenShare, which allows one share content from an Android device straight to the TV screen.
This is also one for gamers to keep an eye on, as Tosh claims an input lag of less than 1ms. Call of Duty WW2 on a 65-inch OLED is, quite frankly, the stuff of which FPS dreams are made.
On the more physical side of things, the X97 comes equipped with four HDMI ports, although we’re not yet sure how many of them will play nice with a UHD signal. It also has an edge-to-edge screen design, which means it has no bezel.
This year Powermove will launch Toshiba’s recently announced LCD TV’s that include the U77 Wide Colour Gamut Series and the U67 UHD range.
