IFA 2006: Toshiba HD-E1 and HD-XE1 HD DVD Players

Toshiba announced today at the IFA 2006 new HD DVD players for Europe: HD-E1 and HD-XE1.

The Toshiba HD-XE1 can provide 1080p on its HDMI (V1.3) interface and features also an 1080p (HD-E1 only upscales to 720p and 1080i and has 1.2 version HDMI interface) upscaling for standard DVDs. The Toshiba HD-E1 and HD-XE1 support Dolby Digital, Dolby TrueHD und DTS-HD audio formats. The HD-XE1 is better (1080p output) than the currently in the US available HD-XA1. So there should be an updated HD DVD player also coming to the US this holiday season.
The lower-end model Toshiba HD-E1 will ship in November with an MSRP of 599 Euro. The HD-EX1 will be in stores in December in Europe with an MSRP of 899 Euro.
