Toshiba announced the addition of two Cinema Series Pro models to their line of REGZA LCD TVs. These are very high-end TVs. They were created specifically for hi-fi lovers and custom installations. There will be 42-inch and 47-inch models available. The displays feature PixelPure 12-bit processing that prevents banding and artifacts. Also integrated into these 1080p displays is Colormaster Pro, an advanced color management feature.
The oddest features is the addition of "Thinc mail" to these televisions. It is an e-mail program integrated into the TV. Send those massively long e-mails with the convenience of a television remote. The Ethernet adapter on the television also allows for MP3 streaming via a PC.
The 42LZ196 42-inch model will retail for $3,400 and the 47LZ196 47-inch model will retail for $4,600. Both of which will be available in September.
