Toshiba to upsale YouTube

Toshiba is developing technology to integrate into its future TVs and DVD players that would boost the quality of YouTube videos, says Pocket-Lint. The Friday news comes from Toshiba UK head Andy Bass, who got a sneak peek at the technology on a Toshiba TV while in Japan and spoke to a group of journalists at the company's spring launch event in Weybridge.

Bass has been critical of Toshiba products in the past, calling them "good old fashioned," but is now saying a stronger lineup is in the cards from the manufacturer in 2009. Exactly how much better YouTube video quality would become is not clear, nor when the technology will make its debut in the company's products.

Earlier this year, LG introduced a pair of DVD players that can directly playback YouTube videos, although they do not boost the quality of the videos.

    how?

    The quality of the video is dependent on the quality it was shot it, I fail to see how it can be artificially boosted - except through blurring and fakery.
