The new Toshiba L54 series - bringing slim and Smart 3D TV entertainment

London, UK, 12th March 2014 – Toshiba UK today announces the new L54 series – a Full HD 3D TV range with the added benefit of Smart TV functionality, available in 102 cm (40”) and 122 cm (48”) screens sizes. Ideal for families looking to enjoy an immersive audio-visual experience at an attractive price, the L54 series enhances the customer viewing experience through advanced features including 2D to 3D conversion and easier access to online content.

Smart through and through
The combination of Smart TV and 3D LED TV gives users the opportunity to enjoy these advanced technologies without any complexity. The L54 TV series brings a wide range of online content and flexible connectivity to the TV viewing experience – such as video on-demand services so users can watch content according to their own schedule, including Netflix, BBC iPlayer, BBC News, Deezer and YouTube®. In addition, there’s a variety of other entertainment, music and news applications ready to be enjoyed at any time, plus the ability to search, browse and bookmark web sites using the internet browser. Also readily accessible via the simple and easy to use home screen is a Facebook widget for social networking, and a weather widget.

3D depth and detail
The L54 TV series also comes with Full HD resolution and active shutter 3D1 technology. Bringing sharp, vivid and clear detail to movies and programmes, viewers can immerse themselves in lifelike 3D action on the screen – whether it’s fascinating documentaries or spectacular movies. Even if content is in 2D, the TV processor can easily convert it to 3D on the fly, for a fast, fluid and realistic picture using the active-shutter 3D glasses. The addition of AMR+ 4002 (Active Motion & Resolution) panel means watching fast paced action such as sports remain smooth and fluid.

Plug-and-play multimedia and connectivity
On the L54 series, enjoying stored content is as easy as plugging in a USB stick or HDD, and selecting the media player on the TV. With options for photos, videos and music, users can easily access their multimedia collections, simply by plugging the device into the USB port on the TV. Multiple HDMI® connectivity means a broader range of entertainment can also be brought to the big screen via a games console, set-top box or Blu-ray™ Disc player. The inclusion of built in Wi-Fi® allows for convenient access to the Smart TV services without the need for cables, plus a built-in Freeview HD3 tuner also enables access to free to air TV programmes in high definition detail.

With a home media network acting as a bridge between devices, movies and other files can easily be shared from a PC in one room to the TV in another. In addition to the USB port, there is also a VGA port for connecting to a PC.

Stylish and slim design
With a smart black, narrow bezel complemented by a silver trim and stand, the L54 series follows the same distinctive design as the full Toshiba TV range. Available in two screen sizes, the energy-efficient Edge LED display was designed for clearer viewing, meaning users benefit from a slim frame that looks good, without sacrificing picture depth and brightness.

The Toshiba L54 TV series will be available during the second quarter of 2014.
