Neuss, 01st September 2011
New RL838 TVs and TL838/868 3D TVs feature Smart TV applications
Toshiba Europe GmbH presented two new TV ranges today. The RL838 series and the TL838 / 868 series TVs take up the main trends in the TV business – home network integration, web access and 3D TV – and make them available at a very reasonable price level. Toshiba’s new RL and TL series devices all feature SMART-TV, providing access to multimedia content over the web. Plus, the TL range features active shutter 3D technology to display content in high-quality 3D. The RL838 series and the TL838 / 868 series TVs will come in a choice of screen sizes. They will be available from September 2011 in Europe.
Smart TV – Web access on the best screen in the house
The new RL838 and TL838 / 868 TVs have everything onboard that is needed to use SMART-TV services: they feature a wide selection of interfaces such as USB, HDMI® and LAN and they are wireless ready via a WLAN USB dongle, which is available as an option. DLNA® certification ensures interoperability with other devices that support the specifications. HbbTV® (Hybrid broadcast broadband TV) services also can be accessed. HbbTV® is an open platform to seamlessly combine TV services delivered via broadcast with services delivered via broadband; amongst them the provisioning of additional information related to the TV programme or Catch-up TV. To complement the hybrid services, the RL838 and TL838 / 868 models offer easy access to value added services and content via Toshiba Places.
