The world's first laptop with Technicolor Color Certification
Toshiba was quick to embrace Intel's Ultrabook form factor during its infancy, and now that 4K displays are gaining traction, here comes Toshiba once again. The Toshiba Satellite P55t is a 15.6-inch laptop with a 4K Ultra HD In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, which offers up four times more pixels than a Full HD 1080p display. It's also supposedly the first notebook in the world to earn Technicolor Color Certification.
According to Toshiba, each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by Chroma Tune and is Technicolor Certified during production for a more natural color expression and accurate color gamut. The end game here is to eliminate 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."
In addition to a 4K Ultra HD display, the Satellite P55t also boasts a 4th Generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor, up to 16GB of dual-channel DDR3L-1600 RAM, AMD Radeon R9 M265X graphics, 1TB hard drive, four USB 3.0 ports, UHS-II SD card slot, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, HDMI output, Harman Kardon speakers, and an optical drive (Blu-ray burner optional).
The Toshiba Satellite P55t will be available on April 22 for $1,500 MSRP.
