Active Vision LCD Picture Processing
Vibrant colours, sharp detail, realistic images.
Active Vision LCD is Toshiba’s high performance picture processing system that produces high quality images by enhancing the four core elements of the television picture:
Three times more pixels produced than with a conventional LCD for superior fine images across all colour tones.
Four times more colour tones produced than with a conventional LCD TV, creating smooth colour progression for a more realistic image.
Real Speed Progressive technology increases picture sharpness during fast moving scenes by reducing jagged edges on lines and detail. Real Speed Progressive technology delivers super smooth motion of fast moving objects, a fact that will not be lost on sports fans. The range possesses a suite of technologies designed to get the very best from programmes, whether they are standard definition of high definition.
Continuous monitoring and automatic adjustment of the contrast ratio, enhances detail and increases the ability of the C Series to show subtle shade changes. The appearance of skin tones are particularly improved, a great benefit when it comes to tense movie close-ups.
Toshiba have ensured the audio quality matches the superior performance of its REGZA LCD TV range, with the inclusion of SRS WOW audio technology. This improves the dynamic audio performance of compressed audio content, expanding the size of the audio image and improving the perception of bass effects. The audio image is extended horizontally and vertically, usefully elevating the virtual sound field to the optimal speaker position which is ear level.

I read several professional reviews of this TV, some good, some bad, some indifferent but one thing I did notice was not one person who had handed over cash for this TV and took the time to review it gave it a bad review and to me that speaks volumes so I was FINALLY set to get my LCD TV
I bought it on the high street yesterday so I paid about 50.00 more than Amazon are selling it for.
The 1st thing that amazed me was the fact I can get all the freeview channels without any picture and sound break-up, even with a signal booster my Philips Set-top box would not manage this.
After some picture tweaks I was very impressed with the overall picture, very little digital blocking or pixilation especially when viewed at distance but I also found viewing the TV from close up is more than acceptable also bare in mind that some freeview channels have terrible bandwidth so a completely clean picture is impossible on some channels.Read more ›
Have now had the Toshiba for 2 weeks, and it seems to have all the input/output options one could need, including arial/Sat connections, 2 scarts, 2HDMI, PC/RGB, RCA-type component video/audio connections.
I guess this Toshiba Regza 32C3030 is part of their latest (Mar 2007) line and has not hit the Amazon 'charts' yet. It does have all the bells and whistles I need, plus some I did not expect. The build of this Toshiba kit is sleek and very solid. The low center of gravity and flat tri-pod style base provides a very sturdy base and makes it virtually impossible to tip it in any direction - I tried it.
The digital freeview reception is better than my Philips box and was pleasantly surprised that the EPG provides a better look, info, scanning functionality and options than my beloved Phillips freeview box, which has been put to use in a 2nd room. A few cool things it provides are notices of programmes starting or also showing on another channel, and time left for a programme - not available on the Phillips.
Picture quality, sharpness and colour is excellent. Whilst I have used it with freeview, DVDs and a SVGA PC/internet news and sports broadcasts, have yet to try it with an HD source.Read more ›
Can only recommend this TV and its bargain price only made me enjoy it even more. Well worth the money
I've currently got a sony upscale 1080i DVD player connected to it (via HDMI) and a superb TVonics 160gig freeview tuner (also recieved 5 stars by what hi-fi magazine) connected via the RGB scart and they all perform exellently together.
The only word of advice can be said about any LCD/Plasma screen these days: They dont come to you with the screens properly calibrated. What I mean is that if you want a brilliant or 'perfect' picture then you will need to adjust the contrast, brightness, colour etc etc. To do this I would reccomend a dvd called Digital Video Essentials which helps you get the right levels of picture adjustments.
This is a great TV at a great price everywhere!
