the High Definition Network

Hong Kong and Tokyo -- Toshiba Corporation is pleased to announce that it will exhibit a wide range of innovative products and technologies at ITU Telecom World 2006, the major telecommunication trade show that will be held at Hong Kong, China, from December 4 to 8.

A pioneer in mobile computing and a leader in electronic devices, Toshiba brings a commitment to excellence and innovation in the development of products and technologies that deliver "Living the Digital World."ITU Telecom World provides Toshiba with an excellent forum for showcasing its recent advances in innovative visual, network and security technologies, all integrated into Toshiba's wide ranging capabilities--from high performance transmission systems to the latest communications terminal equipment--and all supported by cutting edge electronic devices.

Brief details of Toshiba's contribution to ITU Telecom World 2006 follow. These and other exhibits will all be featured at the Toshiba Stand, at No.6014, Hall 6, Ground Level.

Major Exhibits
DLNA Demonstration Stage

DLNA--the digital living network alliance--brings networking into the home and Toshiba brings products into the network. At Telecom, Toshiba will demonstrate an LCD TV, an HD DVD recorder, an AV notebook PC *1 and a multimedia mobile phone supporting Wireless LAN *2 connected in a DLNA system and seamlessly playing back high-definition content. Find out just how easy it will be to stop viewing a program in one room and then resume viewing it from the same point in a different room.
*1 and *2 concept models.

HD products Zone
TV is moving fast toward high definition digital broadcasts, stimulating demand for high definition consumer electronics. Toshiba has matchless strengths to deliver innovation, to integrate digital media technology into exciting visual lifestyles, and to achieve new levels of consumer satisfaction with high-definition products. Toshiba will display its new full-HD LCD TV series "REGZA", the latest HD DVD players, slim HD DVD-ROM drives developed especially for notebook PCs and Qosmio G30 AV PC, the world's first notebook PC to integrate the new drive. Together, this HD line-up will show visitors compelling picture and sound quality and a new level of interactivity.

Advanced Technology Zone
Toshiba is uniquely positioned to realize HDN, the high definition network of tomorrow, and will exhibit advanced technology for the age of ubiquitous connectivity.

Toshiba's Quantum Cryptography System provides one gigabit a second encrypted link with unparalleled security to bridge different sites. All traffic sent through the link is authenticated and encrypted using the IPSec standard. Uniquely, the system frequently refreshes the encryption key using an implementation of quantum cryptography absolutely secure from all possible attacks and with the fastest reported key generation rate. On a more personal level, the company's Network Display System provides anywhere, anytime performance through its ability to function as a personal computer, TV and video phone. All the user has to carry is a hand-held display terminal, which incorporates a wireless network interface to access various services over a wireless link. As the terminal is dedicated to supporting I/O functions it needs no on-board processing or personal data storage capabilities, enhancing its light weight and power efficiency.Demonstrations of both systems will underline the potential of tomorrow's HDN.

Mobile Communications Zone
Product presentations and video demonstrations will showcase how progress in mobile phone technology will enhance the convenience of seamless HDN, and introduce Toshiba's latest mobile phones for the Hong Kong, European and Japanese markets: a total of 112 units in 15 models. Pre-production models with a 3-inch wide VGA display, the highest image quality class applied to mobile phones, will also be on show, and looking a little further into the future, a technical demonstration of a Wireless LAN-integrated multimedia mobile phone will underline Toshiba's capabilities in IMS/FMC*3.
*3 IMS: IP Multimedia Subsystem; FMC: Fixed-Mobile Convergence.

Broadcasting and Telecom Infrastructure Zone
Toshiba's broadcasting and telecoms infrastructure technologies realize total access to an array of visual content. For example, the high definition Video-On-Demand (HD-VOD) system now under development delivers stable Internet-based transmission of HD video content to digital home appliances. Toshiba will demonstrate the system's simple operation and delivery of impressive HD visual images. Toshiba, as a total solutions manufacturer in building broadcasting systems, has a product line-up extending from studio equipment for TV broadcasters, through transmission equipment to receivers. At Telecom, Toshiba will demonstrate mobile terminals for ISDB-T*4 based "1 SEG," a terrestrial digital broadcasting already in service in Japan. Also look for displays of a digital TV transmitter, its IP Transit eXchange (ITX), and wireless coverage systems for 3G.
*4 ISDB-T: integrated services digital broadcasting-terrestrial, a digital terrestrial broadcasting standard used in Japan.

Device Zone
Electronic devices provide powerful support for HDN. Demand continues to grow for far higher storage capacities, better image processing, improved power efficiency and multi-functionality. Toshiba's response is a raft of innovations that will make a difference: diverse LSI solutions, including DynastronTM*5 CMOS area image sensors; the Cell Broadband EngineTM*6, high-end multimedia processors for mobile terminals (T5G and VEGAMagiq); multimedia accelerators for mobile terminals (S1G); full-HD TV system-on-chip (SoC); the M Qbic digital rights management system; memories; microwave semiconductors; input displays built with the latest system-on-glass technology; active matrix organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays; polysilicon TFT LCDs for mobile phones; and micro direct methanol fuel cells for mobile applications. All on display at ITU Telecom World 2006.
