"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."

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.

"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."
