HDTV quality DVD Player

HDTV quality DVD Player

"HDTV quality DVD Player" refers to an upcoming line of DVD players developed by Toshiba, with alleged High-definition playback quality.


In May 2008 Toshiba announced the technology, which is scheduled to reach the market by the end of 2008. The announcements came following the company's discontinuation of the HD DVD-format in February 2008. [Article in Yomiuri Shimbun dated May 30, 2008 (in Japanese).] The new player is designed to replay existing DVD-discs in HDTV-quality and will compete with the leading High definition disc-storage format: Blu-ray.

August 18, 2008, Toshiba officially announced XD-E500 DVD player featuring XDE, or “eXtended Detail Enhancement” technology. In addition to providing upconversion from 480i/p up to 1080p, XDE offers user selectable picture enhancement modes that allow for greater detail, more vivid colors and stronger contrast.

The storage capacity of the main competing format, Blu-ray Disc, is more than 5 times that of DVD. Blu-ray is therefore capable of rendering movies at 1080p-screen resolution, or 2 million pixels, while the DVD-format is capable of displaying 350,000 pixels at 480p or 576p screen resolution.To overcome the disadvantage, Toshibas new DVD-technology uses LSI to add quality and fidelity to the displayed image.
