Toshiba has revealed its upcoming HD display lineup, headlined by the L54, L64, and L74 series. All of the models feature LCD 1080p panels with LED backlights and smart TV capabilities.
The L54 series will be available in 40 and 48-inch models and uses edge LED backlighting and active shutter 3D technology. In addition, the sets offer 2D to 3D conversion and AMR+ 4002 tech for smooth motion during fast paced content. Meanwhile, the L64 series comes in 42 and 47-inch variations and features the company's more robust Smart TV Cloud service which includes a PVR (Personal Video Recording) feature. Unlike the L54, the L64 uses direct LED backlighting but does include 3D support. Finally, the L74 series will debut with 42, 47, and 55-inch models and combines many of the benefits of the L54 and L64 series. The TVs feature the Smart TV Cloud service, direct LED backlighting, passive 3D capabilities (with four included glasses), and Toshiba's advanced CEVO picture and audio technology.
Exact pricing and release dates have not been announced yet, but the L54, L64, and L74 series are expected to launch in the second quarter of 2014.
