Toshiba's Digital Products Division (DPD), a division of Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., today unveiled its new Satellite P55t, featuring one of the world's first 4K Ultra HD display in a laptop and the world's first to earn Technicolor Color Certification. Ideal for visual creative professionals and multimedia enthusiasts, the Satellite P55t is designed to take on the most intensive computing demands and display unprecedented imagery.
"Creative professionals are embracing 4K Ultra HD as it enables a whole new level of media creation that draws viewers in with amazing detail and clarity," said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. "Until now, media creators have been unable to have this combination of performance and display capabilities in a mobile solution and we applied years of experience and engineering resources to make it a reality.
World's First Technicolor Color Certified Laptop Display
The Satellite P55t's 15.6-inch diagonal Ultra HD TruBrite touchscreen display shows lifelike crystal-clear definition and houses four times as many pixels as a Full HD screen. Delivering a native 3840 x 2160 resolution with 282 PPI (pixels per inch), the display produces smoother imagery and an astounding level of detail. The display, with IPS technology, also allows for higher resolutions and wider viewing angles, enabling photographers, videographers, graphic designers and entertainment enthusiasts to create, review and view media with the confidence the colors are true and accurate.
Each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by Chroma Tune and is Technicolor Certified during production to realize natural color expression with an accurate color gamut to ensure true-to-life imagery. As a result, everything displayed on screen is reproduced according to the original intent and there are no mismatches when viewing photos or other imagery. In addition, with the preinstalled Chroma Tune for Toshiba software, users can personalize and manage individual color space control and apply profiles to a variety of software applications.
"Our color certification team worked closely with the engineering team at Toshiba to ensure the highest levels of color calibration on this laptop's display," said Manuele Wahl, senior vice president, Licensing at Technicolor. "We applied the same rigor of testing and calibration used on major motion pictures to ensure not only that photographers and videographers now see what they shot in perfect color, but consumers can also experience 4K film and videos as Hollywood directors intended."
To complement the display's broad range of colors, the Satellite P55t 4K Ultra HD model includes a full version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 software, ideal for photographers who want to organize, perfect and share amazing images.
