Toshiba announced plans to demonstrate yet another CELL powered TV prototype at the CES 2009. We've been hearing about using the PS3 CPU to power TV sets since 2004. I finally want one.
At the CES 2009 Toshiba is exhibiting two CELL TV prototypes.
The first one features a 56-inch, 4k x 2k pixel panel to display images that the Cell platform upconverts from 1920x1080p to 3840x2160p, and also upconverting of content such as Internet video to high picture quality by application of “Resolution+” technology in combination with newly developed noise reduction technology.
A second 55-inch backlit LED panel TV set controlled by the Cell platform is used to demonstrate high-speed control of all picture parameters, including an innovative local dimming function.
Here is my motto for Toshiba: Productize and don't fantasize!
