Toshiba XL9C OLED: this television breaks into the high range with full HDR support and DTS Virtual: X sound and Dolby Atmos


The flagship TV that Toshiba offers us this year is about to hit stores. And it looks very good. This Japanese brand is one of those that bet on OLED technology, and your new XL9C incorporates the latest innovations in the area of ​​image processing developed by its engineers to compete in a market that, fortunately, increasingly offers users more options.

In the specifications of this Toshiba television it does not reflect what type of OLED panel it has opted for, but given its maximum brightness delivery capacity (500 nits) we can be reasonably sure that this is a second-generation organic matrix produced by LG, and not a third-generation evo panel. In any case, this television has several very interesting features for which it is worth not overlooking it.

Full HDR and HDMI 2.1 support to fight at the high end

The OLED panel of this television is an organic matrix with 4K UHD resolution (3840 x 2160 points) prepared to work at a maximum refresh rate of 120 Hz. Nothing new here. Toshiba only tells us that its image processor is a quad-core chip, although, yes, according to this brand, this television implements its most advanced algorithms image processing and motion management.

Panel technologies and TV trends coming in 2022, explained

One of the most attractive assets of this XL9C OLED is that it offers us full support for all the most commonly used HDR formats today, which are none other than Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG. This feature should be present in all high-end televisions, but unfortunately it is not.

This OLED TV offers us full HDR support: Dolby Vision, HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG

Samsung does not offer us support for Dolby Vision, and LG and Sony do not bet on HDR10 +. In any case, this Toshiba television plays in the league of Panasonic, Philips, HiSense or TCL, which are some of the brands that also offer us full HDR support.

As I mentioned a few lines above, the maximum brightness delivery capacity of this television is 500 nits, a figure that, although it does not impress (LG’s third-generation OLED evo panels and Samsung’s QD-OLEDs exceed this value). , it should allow you to cope with the reproduction of the contents of high dynamic range They are solvency.

Another of the characteristics on which it relies to compete in the high range is the implementation of the full 2.1 standard in the HDMI connectors, an essential feature for any user who wants to use it with video games. In this area, the same thing happens with the support of HDR formats: all brands should already offer us full HDMI 2.1 connectivity, especially in their high-end models, but some of them still do not.

In addition to Dolby Atmos, it processes DTS Virtual: X sound.

Toshiba doesn’t seem to have neglected the sound of this TV. At least on paper. And it is that he is capable of processing not only Dolby Atmos audio; also deals with DTS contentwhich in this area gives it an edge over some of its competitors, including high-end TVs from LG and Samsung, which have abandoned DTS soundtrack decoding.

The sound of this TV has been equalized and tuned by Onkyo

In addition, Toshiba claims that the sound of this TV has been equalized and tuned by Onkyo, a brand that continues to have a good reputation in the home theater arena. One last note: the sound modes that it allows us to enable to get the most out of the content we are playing are music, movie, speech, classic, flat, and a last mode defined by the user.
