At the peak of the 2014 Full HD TV lineup, the Toshiba L7400U Series features the new Radiance Full Array LED panel incorporating Toshiba’s own SuperBright LEDs with twice the brightness of a standard LED backlight system, Wide Color Gamut and Quantum Black™ Local Dimming to deliver significantly more dynamic images than ever before. It also includes the superior ClearScan® 240Hz refresh rate, so fast motion scenes in sports or action movies will stay crystal clear, and the CQ Dual + Single Core Engine for a high performance chassis. The L7400U Series matches great picture quality with great sound quality with the new Labyrinth™ Speaker System which increases sound pressure levels and bass response to deliver sound that is fuller and has more impact than most flat-panel TVs. DTS Premium Sound is added to create overall immersive sound experience.

With a DIRECTV Ready television, you can enjoy all the benefits of your Genie™ HD DVR without seeing additional equipment.

Once fully implemented, this evolution of Cloud TV will provide enhanced graphics with 3D transitions and faster operation.
