Toshiba's plans to put on sale worldwide next year its second generation of TVs that boast the ability to display images that exceed today's high-definition sets.
The TVs have four times the resolution of HD: 3840 pixels by 2160 pixels versus 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels; and the technology is collectively called "4K" because of the almost 4,000-pixel horizontal resolution.
Toshiba's three upcoming 4K models will be available in the spring of 2013, Masahiko Fukakushi, president and CEO of Toshibas digital products division, said at a Tokyo news conference on Thursday.
