Toshiba Expands Recycling Program to Include gigabeat Portable Media Players

Toshiba’s Digital Products Division, a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today announced the gigabeat T400, the company’s first flash-based portable digital media player featuring high-end audio H2C audio enhancement technology and support for WMA Lossless audio files for $119.99. Toshiba has also expanded its recycling program to include its gigabeat portable media player lineup.

Toshiba’s gigabeat T400 incorporates H2C technology to improve the quality of compressed audio for an unmatched listening experience. H2C technology enhances the quality of MP3 and WMA audio files by restoring some of a song’s treble & bass signals that get lost when tracks are ripped. In addition to H2C, the gigabeat T400 can play WMA Lossless music files to further supply users with the option of enjoying music at the highest level possible from a compressed file format. These functions are enhanced through a 1-bit digital amplifier, and DCTSC filter, which reduce noise in audible frequencies.

The gigabeat T400 has 4GB of NAND flash memory that can store up to 1000 songs, 4,000 photos and up to six hours of video. To take advantage of this storage capacity, the gigabeat T400 can deliver up to 16 hours of audio playback or up to 5 hours of video playback on a single battery charge. Toshiba also designed the gigabeat T400 with a stunning 2.4-inch LCD color display, which is one of the largest screens in this class of flash-based portable media players. As a mobile companion, the gigabeat T400 is constructed with a magnesium alloy frame to give the player a greater level of strength and durability.

“In bringing the gigabeat T400 to market, Toshiba wanted to offer users a unique alternative to the portable media players currently available from a technology, durability and pricing standpoint,” said Jeff Barney, vice president of marketing, Digital Products Division, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc. “For under $120, few products on the market can match the gigabeat’s ease of use and playback quality.”

Each gigabeat sports Toshiba’s PlusPad™ control button to provide an easy and intuitive user-experience for navigating an extensive library of music and video files, including MP3, WMA WAV, WMA Lossless and WMV. Meanwhile, the Toshiba gigabeat T400 is compatible with Windows Media Player version 10 and above, which makes transferring entire media collections as simple as a few clicks. The gigabeat T400 is compatible with some of the most popular download sites on the Internet, including Napster and eMusic. Through these sites, gigabeat users have access to a database of several million songs.
