April 26, 2018

In a move that it suggests will bring cinema-inspired viewing to more homes, Toshiba TVs has confirmed that Dolby Vision HDR is to feature on all its 2018 UHD ranges for Europe.

“Enabling viewers to take home the movie theatre experience, this collaboration not only raises the bar for general TV viewing standards, but also for access to high quality content,” suggested Bart Kuijten European Sales and Marketing Director. “Maximising the value of our TVs as all-round home entertainment hubs, it ensures compatibility with a world-leading portfolio of Dolby Vision mastered content, which not only encompasses films, but also Blu-ray titles, TV series and video games.”

“We are delighted to bring Dolby Vision to Toshiba’s 2018 ranges of UHD TVs,” declared Javier Foncillas, VP, Commercial Partnerships – Europe, Dolby Laboratories. “As the content available in Dolby Vision continues to expand, from blockbuster movies to the latest series on the most popular streaming services, we look forward to working with Toshiba to bring the Dolby Vision experience to more consumers across Europe.”

Meanwhile, Toshiba has also confirmed that most of its 2018 UHD and Full HD Smart TV line-up will work with Amazon’s Alexa voice-control assistant.

European Sales and Marketing Director, Bart Kuijten, commented: “With our Alexa-enabled series, we’re future proofing TV, making it a fundamental part of the smart home experience. Enabling viewers to control the audio, movie and gaming TV schedule using only their voice, they also highlight and optimise the value of Smart TV as a dynamic and social home entertainment hub.”
