Toshiba dynabook TX/98MBL Blu-ray 3D Notebook


First PC Supporting the Blu-ray 3D Format

Toshiba announced the introduction of the industry’s first notebook PC1 featuring playback of 3D3 content in the Blu-ray 3D2 format. The new “dynabook TX/98MBL” will be available from the end of July in the Japanese market.

“dynabook TX/98MBL” features a 15.6-inch wide LCD display with LED backlighting and a 120Hz scan rate. It employs WinDVD BD for TOSHIBA to play back content in the Blu-ray 3D™ format and NVIDIA 3D Vision™4 software and hardware to deliver a rich 3D experience.

The new 3D notebook PC adopts the active shutter technology that has made 3D a hit in movie theatres around the world. The system’s active shutter LCD glasses lighten and darken at the same fast refresh rate of the 120Hz5LCD, with an effective refresh rate for each eye of 60Hz. As each eye receives a slightly different image, the result is a dynamic, high quality6 stereoscopic image: full 3D7. High level system performance is secured by integration or NVIDIA’s latest graphic processor, the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 350M4, and 1GB Video RAM dedicated to graphics processing.

A pair of wireless 3D active shutter glasses bundled with the dynabook TX/98MBL assures immediate enjoyment of Blu-ray 3D™ titles and 3D game content8.

The dynabook TX/98MBL complements its high grade visual experience with a combination of harman/kardon stereo speakers and Dolby Advanced Audio that delivers full-bodied, vibrant sound. The processor is an Intel Core™ i7-740QM, and on-board storage is provided by a large capacity 640GB hard disk drive. The latest version of Microsoft Office Home and Business 2010 are pre-installed.
