Toshiba Corp. has announced that the company will launch a new series of high resolution 4K ultra high-definition TVs with 3840*2160 resolution, the Regza Z8X series, at the end of June in Japan. The new UHDTVs will be Toshiba’s second-generation 4K TV-sets.

The new TVs will be available in 58”, 65” and 84” models and will integrate Toshiba's newly developed Regza Engine Cevo 4K and Cinema 4K image processing system. In addition, Z8X upscales standard HD images (1920*1080) from digital broadcasts and Blu-ray discs to close to 4K-image level.

With Toshiba's optional external flat HDD, THD-450T1, which fits onto the back of the TV, viewers can record a maximum of six selected channels of digital terrestrial broadcasting for as long as 80 hours, and quickly find and watch preferred programs. The TVs also connect with Toshiba's TimeOn cloud service, which makes it easy to find and enjoy content, share with friends and family.

In recent years, a market preference for large screen TVs has triggered growing expectations for higher resolution TVs. In response, Toshiba developed the Regza X3 series, the world's first 4K ultra HD TVs, and launched them in December, 2011. With the new Z8X series, Toshiba introduces an upgraded high resolution image processing system that delivers even sharper, more realistic picture quality.

Pricing of the new TVs is unknown. It is also unclear when Toshiba unleashes UHD TVs in other parts of the world.
