Toshiba has announced details and a release date for its new flagship 55ZL1 HDTV. It is the first model powered by the new CEVO-ENGINE, which replaces the company’s Cell-powered models. The CEVO-ENGINE is a stack of Cell multicore processors in a seven-core processing unit that provides the muscle for the various features like 2D to 3D conversion, 3D depth control, HDD video recording, Auto Calibration, and even a face recognition feature that will identify you and switch to your personal settings.
Channel lists can be personalized and Toshiba says a new Auto Calibration feature in the 55ZL1 uses a color-analyzer approach to optimize the settings and display movies with the same colors and gray scale intended by the movie’s director. The 55″ model will be available in Europe this May.
