Toshiba TV’s TRU Picture Engine

Powered by Toshiba TV’s TRU Picture Engine, TRU Resolution technology automatically upscales non-4K content so you can experience your favourite movies and TV shows in the highest resolution. TRU Micro-Dimming technology analyses 300 different zones to enhance the contrast of an image by optimising the darker and brighter regions to create a more realistic image.

Dolby Vision

Picture and sound quality are further enhanced with Dolby Vision and speakers designed by Onkyo. Dolby Vision HDR transforms your TV for a more vibrant visual experience and when compared to a standard picture, Dolby Vision can deliver never-before-seen colours, highlights that are up to 40 times brighter, and blacks that are 10 times darker.

Combined with the UA2B’s integrated speakers, designed by Onkyo, Toshiba’s latest TV model has everything you need for a cinematic sound experience at home.
