CRICKET MODE - Fast motions, wide angle shots and panning scenes are common in cricket videos, causing loss of depths and details. Toshiba cricket mode detects the motion and brightness to enhance the contour of objects, enhancing the details and sharpness of the objects. The cricket ball and the details of the cricket pitch are more distinct & stand-out than the background. Grass field is reproduced in its natural texture. In addition, Cricket Mode reduces the MPEG noise, reproducing smooth and sharp moving images.
The new Cricket Series adorn a skilfully created, beautiful design that stylishly complements the quality of the images and sounds. The “U- shape” motif incorporated in the new series, is not only functional, but also, accentuates your living space.

AMR image-processing technology enhances the TV panel refresh rate, video processing speed, and ups the backlight in Toshiba LED TV Cricket Series, to offer an unparalleled detailing to the cricket ground, the pitch and the cricket ball. The Audio Distortion Control (ADC) & Spectrum Analyser create and refine frequency to create a sound which is not only stadium like, but clear and distortion free as well. ADC minimises sound distortion during high volume by suppressing the distortion of individual frequencies without lowering the overall sound pressure. Therefore, the audio quality can be optimised. With Spectrum Analyser, you can also see how the audio is reproduced in different frequencies and amplitude level. The graphic display gives you additional sense to visualise your audio experience.
