Man, what a toll
the loss of HD DVD
has taken on Toshiba. Judging by the vast expanse of floor space at Tosh's booth not
covered with people (seriously, look for anyone in the gallery below) and the inclusion of CES-announced DVD / VHS recorders
(yes, really) as premiere products, we'd say the outfit is still hurting from the outcome of the format war. In all honesty, we felt kind of sad sashaying through its installation while reading slogans like "See everything in HD (even the non-HD stuff)." We even viewed the Super Resolution Technology
demonstration with an open mind, and while there's certainly a mild difference with SRT
, these sets hardly make SD signals into high-def. Grab a tissue and wander through the gallery below.
