Toshiba outs Regza RZ1 3D TVs, Portege Z930 ultrabook

Last week, Toshiba Philippines launched their newest Regza RZ1 glasses-free 3D TV with 4K resolution (that’s 4 times 1080p) and what they claim to be the thinnest 13-inch ultrabook, the Portege Z930.

Held at the Blue Leaf Pavilions in McKinley Hill Village in Fort Bonifacio, Toshiba made sure that no product was left unnoticed, filling up the entire venue with their new products to the point that it looked like a classy appliance store.

To lead their entertainment lineup is the Regza RZ1 or the 55RZ1, a 55 inch glasses-free 3D TV. Taking the spot as the first large-screen glasses-free 3D TV in Asia. It has a Quad Full HD LCD display, bumping up the resolution to 3,840 x 2,160 pixels. This means that you can view an 8-megapixel content on the 55RZ1 with no compromise in image quality.

Its glasses –free 3D technology is made possible through a Parallax screen. If you’ve read our review on the LG Optimus 3D Max you’ll have an idea on how it works. To make things even more impressive, the 55RZ1 also has a face-tracking capability, allowing it to fine-tune the 3D viewing experience in respect to the viewer’s position. Planning to have a group watch 3D movies on the RZ1? Not a problem. Its REGZA ENGINE CEVO DUO S engine can project 3D in 9 different viewing zones for a wide-angle viewing experience.

Got deep pockets? This massive TV also comes with a massive price tag of around Php600,000. I can’t remember the exact amount as my mind immediately went blank upon hearing the “six hundred” part.

    Regarding Toshiba Regza RZ1, to have glass free display at just one position means reducing horizontal resolution by 1/2. For 9 viewing positions it will be 1/18. Even though its 4K, image might already look awkward in that group mode.
