Next Generation Full HD 3D with CEVO Engine Technology
The YL series offers outstanding design coupled with leading technology to provide a complete 3D, PRO-LED and Smart TV solution. It features Toshiba’s CEVO Engine for next generation picture processing, 2D to 3D conversion, 3D and online content upscaling as well as access to internet TV content. All of this is housed in an ultra-thin brushed aluminium design, designed in collaboration with Jacob Jensen Design.
3D with CEVO Engine Technology
The CEVO Engine is a new, ultra powerful, multi-processor platform TV engine that powers premium Toshiba TVs. It delivers a new level of image quality in respect to 2D, 3D, and a new level of quality in regard to 2D to 3D image conversion.
CEVO 2D to 3D Conversion
Thanks to the CEVO Engine’s high performance 2D to 3D conversion technology you'll be able to enjoy your favourite 2D content in 3D, bringing that special cinema experience to your everyday viewing. The CEVO Engine captures and analyses image composition and movement in 2D content, and converts it to 3D with precise rendering and natural, high definition images, all via a powerful processing unit that is exclusively dedicated to 2D to 3D conversion.
Resolution+ Image Enhancement
The CEVO Engine-powered Resolution+ allows you to instantly upgrade everything you watch to near high definition quality. Toshiba's award winning Resolution+ upscaling technology, which has been improved and re-engineered, can now also upscale any non-1080p 3D content to provide sharper and clearer images with improved edge detail and better textural content of the final 3D image.
Resolution+ also takes everyday standard definition 2D content and instantly improves edge detail and texture, enhancing it to virtually high definition picture quality. With Resolution+, your 1080p Toshiba TV will produce near HD picture quality on all standard definition TV, DVD and downloaded content you watch while still delivering the most pure and stunning picture quality possible from all high definition sources. Watch as your favourite movies, programmes and games become clearer, richer and sharper than ever before.
CEVO Intelligent 3D with PRO-LED
The CEVO-Engine combined with the PRO-LED panel deliver superior picture quality and outstanding brightness in 2D and 3D mode.
Watching 3D content with Active shutter 3D glasses is a great experience, but one side effect is that colour perception changes and perceived brightness falls as one of your eyes is always "closed". In order to correct this, Toshiba has developed Intelligent 3D technology. Toshiba has measured the difference in brightness and colour when looking through 3D glasses, so if a 3D signal is played on the YL863, Intelligent 3D automatically optimises brightness and colour values. The overall result is 2D image quality when viewing 3D content - there is no need to manually adjust the picture to compensate.
Working alongside the CEVO Engine, Toshiba’s PRO-LED panel uses a hybrid back and edge-lit LED panel with local dimming zones. Each dimming zone is controlled individually to provide dramatically improved image quality, delivering more consistent brightness, with better colour and overall contrast. The outcome is the achievement of blacker blacks and more lifelike colour.
Designed in collaboration with Jacob Jensen Design
Continuing the same design principle of the acclaimed iF Product Design award-winning WL768, the YL863 has been designed in collaboration with Jacob Jensen Design. Based on the foundations of elegance and modernism, all models feature a super slim profile and a stylish matte finish with an eye-catching brushed aluminium design.

Picture Quality is nothing short of fantastic, displaying pretty much all colours beautifully. It lags keeping up with faster paced scenes, perhaps more noticable when brighter colours are displayed such as watching a soccer match.
The audio quality is not as good as that of Sony and Samsung. Its Tinny but not so much that it ruins the experience.
It has built in wifi so you dont need a wifi card however it has such poor signal pickup that its not worth using. In a room where i get full signal strength using an ipad, iphone, Google nexus 7, Dell laptop and few other devices this tv's built in wifi cant stay connected for more than 5 seconds.
Overall the picture quality and the attractive design with the aluminium brushed bezel make it a nice tv set which is probably best hooked upto a cinema surround system.
Annoying that is has no physical power off switch but sure, thats the same as everything else these days!!
Haven't tried out the 3d yet, doesn't really interest me that much. I'll get around to it at some point!
For the price, I cannot recommend this TV enough.
