In a world of Blu-ray, HD video downloads and high definition games consoles it’s easy to forget the mammoth DVD collection stashed under the TV, but there are ways to make those discs shine again. All you need is a DVD upscaler, such as our XDE600.
What is upscaling?
Packing in XDE technology, the XDE600 takes your standard definition pictures and analyses them to detect detail, texture and the edges of on-screen objects. Once it’s fathomed the picture on screen it’ll reduce 3D noise too, so the result is a cleaner, sharper image that looks packed with detail and give a rich, crisp picture.
The XDE600 effectively pushes DVD pictures nearer to Full HD quality, reducing the blurry effect that’s often seen with DVDs shown on 1080p Full HD TVs with clever upscaling.
Colours too are given a boost, with the XDE600 automatically enhancing blue and green tones, which often lose vibrancy after upscaling, as well as adjusting contrast to improve light and dark areas of the image.
Top quality connections
The XDE600 uses HDMI to connect to your TV. It’s a single cable that transfers images and sound at once, so it’s ultra-simple to set up. What’s more, since it’s a digital connection, there’s no loss of quality between the DVD player and the TV.
REGZA Link technology also means the Toshiba XDE600 can be controlled by other Toshiba equipment. Got a Toshiba TV? Then you’ll be able to control both it, and the DVD player using a single remote.
As well as upscaling your DVDs for the very best picture, the XDE600 also acts as a music player, accepting MP3 and WMA files from USB, DVD or CD discs. It’ll play back JPEG photos on the big screen too, as well as DivX videos. All those features combine to make it a one-stop home cinema box for those wanting top quality, without spending top
