New 4K-capable televisions include optional DVR with 6-channel recording

Toshiba has revealed it will be launching a new set of 4K-capable televisions in Japan. The Regza Z8X range of UHDTVs, measuring 58, 65, and 84 inches, will include native support for NHK's "Hybridcast," a system the Japanese broadcaster is trialling which adds more information to TV programming through an Internet service.

The screens will use the Regza Engine CEVO 4K and Cinema 4K image processing system to show 4K images, as well as upscaling standard HD video and images to the higher resolution. An optional external hard disk can be installed into the back of the TV and used as a DVR, allowing for recording of up to six channels simultaneously for up to 80 hours, while the TVs will also be able to connect to Toshiba's TimeOn cloud service for content sharing.

The 84-inch and 65-inch models will have 40-Watt sound provided from four speakers, while the 58-inch will have 20-Watt sound from two instead. All of the televisions have four HDMI ports along with an SD card reader, Ethernet, a USB port, and built-in Wi-Fi.

Going on sale in Japan from the end of June, the 84-inch model will cost 1.68 million yen ($16,450). Though there is no mention if the Regza Z8X range will make its way into other markets, Toshiba did show off an 84-inch Ultra HD TV at CES earlier this year, suggesting that the company may well do so.
