Toshiba Announces New et20 Projector5.1 Surround Sound System, and Silicon Optix's Realta HQV Processing (March 10, 2006)
Toshiba has announced the et20 projector with integrated DVD player, 5.1-channel audio system, and an exclusive Super Close Projection lens that will produce a 2-meter (diagonal) image from 1-meter and a 1.5-meter image from only 70 centimeters away. The projector will also feature the Realta HQV(R) video processor for delivering what's acknowledged as the industry's best image quality. The projector will have a retail price of EUR 1599 ($1900 US) and will be available in April 2006.
Realta "HQV Powered by Teranex" encompasses true 10-bit video processing, full four-field motion- adaptive video deinterlacing for both standard-definition and high-definition signals, pixel-by-pixel temporal-recursive noise reduction, automatic film-mode detection, and pixel-based detail enhancement. It also uses the same video processing power--one trillion operations per second--as the $60,000 Teranex Xantus box.
