Toshiba shows off HD DVD and LCD at CEDIA At the CEDIA (Custom Electronics Design and Intallation Association) Expo Toshiba is announcing two new 1080p LCD televisions, as well as third generation HD DVD players.
The new 40" and 46" TVs, set to be shipped this month, are intended to be a step below Toshiba's Cinema Series. The pair should fit into more spaces with smaller bezel dimensions than the company's predecesors.

The 46-inch model is about an inch wider than a typical 42-inch LCD and shorter. The 40-inch model offers the same width as Toshiba’s 37-inch model (37.7 inches wide), meaning it will fit most armoires designed for 37-inch TVs, said Scott Ramirez, Toshiba TV group marketing VP. The side bezel Frame is less than an inch wide, whereas the standard frame is about twice that size, he said.

Ramirez indicates many consumers are looking for televisions they can fit into existing spaces, and current models aren't suitable for the job.

They also showed off their recently announced line of third generation HD DVD players. They range in price from $299 to $499 and include support for HDi networking, an HD DVD feature intended to link players to websites through interactive movie and menu content.
