Toshiba UK today announces a new range of Smart TV services and features with the introduction of the new TL968 and RL958 TV series. Both new series have been enhanced to make it easier to access a world of online content and connect with multiple multimedia devices around the home. New built in Wi-Fi® provides instant access to Toshiba Places, an Open Browser lets viewers surf the web, while USB Video Recording, Intel® Wireless Display, Skype™ compatibility and additional tablet and smartphone integration combine to offer greater functionality than ever before.

Building on the success of their predecessors, both new TV ranges feature Full HD (1920 x 1080p resolution) and 16:9 LCD panels with Edge LED backlighting which delivers vibrant colours and deep blacks, while Active Motion & Resolution technology ensures smooth and crisp images. Viewers can recreate the 3D experience at home with the TL968 series, which utilises impressive active shutter 3D functionality, using Toshiba’s 3D glasses, and even watch their favourite 2D content in a new dimension using 2D to 3D conversion technology.

Smarter inside
