From Toshiba Press ReleaseThe top-of-the-line Cinema Series XV545 line offers advanced technology and picture quality and is available in 42.0-inch, 46.0-inch and 52.0-inch sizes (diagonal). This lineup includes Toshiba's new SRT upconversion technology, the AutoView feature for enhanced image quality at all times, no matter the surroundings, as well as Toshiba's new Double Skin Cabinetry. With double skin, the cabinet's outer skin is translucent, allowing you to see through to a second interior skin with texture behind it -- creating a feeling of dimension and a rich, luxurious look.
For fast action movies and sports, the XV545 line features Toshiba's ClearFrame technology, which virtually eliminates motion blur. The 120Hz system doubles the frame rate of an LCD TV from 60 frames per second to 120 frames per second, creating tire-spinning action sequences and game-winning sports moments that are more crisp and clear. All REGZA models with ClearFrame 120 Hz technology include Film Stabilization mode for a picture with smoother motion, and for those customers preferring a more film-like experience, Toshiba has also implemented a 5:5 Pull-Down process. This series also features 14-Bit PixelPure 4G Internal Digital Video Processing with 10-Bit LCD panels for 16,384 levels of gradation and Toshiba's ColorBurst wide color gamut for rich lifelike color. In addition, the XV545 series includes four HDMI inputs with REGZA LINK (HDMI-CEC) and Toshiba's SoundStrip speaker technology, which allows for home theater sound in a small strip beneath the screen.
To keep the avid gamer one step ahead, the line also offers Gaming Mode, which enhances the gaming experience by reducing game controller delay. When activated, Gaming Mode allows the video signal to bypass select picture circuitry to shorten the overall signal to screen response time. What this means is that the gamer has improved reaction time and a better overall experience.
Like all of Toshiba's new LCD TV lines, the XV545 features a CineSpeed panel for faster response times, DynaLight control for deeper black levels and is ENERGY STAR compliant.
Yes, they had one on display at Future Shop in Coquitlam (BC) last weekend, it looked great (in HD). BUT they did not have it hooked up to an SD source, so I was not able to check out the SRT function.I haven't run across an 52XV545U yet, still looking. Have you seen one yet swedebc?
It's a real scam that Future Shop does. They list a price much higher than Toshiba's MSRP price, then they knock of a bit and pretend they're having a sale.Have been looking around for this model and finally saw the 46" model at Future Shop in Oakville today, regular price of $2199. Hooked up with component only so can't really comment on the picture. Hope you can turn off the back-lit Toshiba sign as I find it distracting.
