Toshiba’s Satellite A665 Laptops are now 3D-enabled
Toshiba announced yesterday their latest Satellite A665 Laptop will support 3D Content thanks to a software update. This update will allow users to enjoy 2D contents turned into 3D thanks to an application capable to render the 3D contents in real time.
But for those who prefer enjoy 3D Blu-Ray on their all new 3D LED TV, like the REGZA WL768 Series, Toshiba also planned to offer an HDMI Interface capable of outputting 3D content directly to a 3D TV thanks to a firmware upgrade. The Satellite A665 comes with a pair of Nvidia 3D Vision active shutter glasses.
For the rest of the specs, we have an Intel Core i7 CPU, with 4GB of DDR3 RAM, up to 500GB of HDD, a 15.6’’ TruBrite HD Display (LED Backlighted), a Nvidia GeForce GTS 350M graphics, a Blu-Ray player (Blu-Ray 3D Disc compatible), the Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, de Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, the Gigabit Ethernet LAN, 3 USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA / USB combo port, a 1.3Mpix webcamera, and Harman Kardon Stero Speakers.
The Satellite A665 is one of Toshiba’s most advanced next-generation laptops, combining incredible 3D capabilities with high definition (HD) multimedia computing for a truly immersive home entertainment experience. The Satellite A665 comes bundled with a pair of NVIDIA 3D Vision™ active shutter glasses, providing out-of-the-box 3D playback with outstanding depth-of-field reproduction on games and video content.
Breathing new life into 2D video
The Satellite A665’s immersive 3D technology now includes the ability to take 2D content and instantly upconvert it to 3D, when played on the Toshiba Video Player 3D software – giving existing DVD collections and home videos a new lease of life. Toshiba Video Player
3D, exclusively available for Toshiba customers, uses a series of complex algorithms to render 2D images in 3D, in real time.
Streaming 3D content to a 3D TV set
The Satellite A665 now also offers an HDMI® interface capable of outputting 3D content directly to a 3D TV set1. By connecting the Satellite A665 to a 3D TV set, as if it were a 3D Blu-ray player, users can immerse themselves in dramatic three-dimensional pictures on a bigger screen – perfect for enjoying in the living room with friends and family.
All 3D content, including upconverted video from Toshiba Video Player 3D, native Blu-ray 3D™ discs, and next-generation 3D games, can either be viewed on the Satellite A665’s 3D HD 15.6” TruBrite LED backlit screen, or on any 3D capable television featuring a 120Hz refresh rate.
