Toshiba Power TV – Specially designed for the needs of the Indian Market:
The Power TV family will launch with three series: PC 1 LED TVs, offering 24- and 32-inch models, the world's first LED TV models with integrated back-up batteries; the PS 1 series of LED TVs, offering 24-, 32- and 40-inch models, all designed to maximize power saving; and the PB 1 cold cathode fluorescent backlit LCD TVs, offering 24- and 32-inch models. The PC 1 series are the world's first TVs to integrate a stand-by rechargeable battery, a useful innovation in areas where power supply can be uncertain. Fully charged, the battery can power a TV for 2 hours.
All Power TVs feature Toshiba's proprietary "Power Meta Brain", an image processing engine that integrates advanced technologies to ensure crisp, high resolution image with true-to-life colors. The high power 20W speaker pumps out natural and vibrant sound. The Power TV series also boast an advanced feature "Auto Signal Booster" that improves signal sensitivity and allows viewing in areas with weak signal strengths.
All models are designed to reduce running costs by lowering power consumption. A key aspect of this is "AutoView", which monitors room brightness and adjusts the backlight and various picture parameters accordingly. It also continually analyzes image lightness and darkness, adjusting it to maintain maximum contrast.
