“Creative professionals are embracing 4K Ultra HD as it enables a whole new level of media creation that draws viewers in with amazing detail and clarity,” said Carl Pinto, vice president of marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “Until now, media creators have been unable to have this combination of performance and display capabilities in a mobile solution and we applied years of experience and engineering resources to make it a reality.”

World’s First Technicolor Color Certified Laptop Display

The Satellite P55t’s 15.6-inch diagonal Ultra HD TruBrite® touchscreen display1 shows lifelike crystal-clear definition and houses four times as many pixels as a Full HD screen. Delivering a native 3840 x 2160 resolution with 282 PPI (pixels per inch), the display produces smoother imagery and an astounding level of detail. The display, with IPS technology, also allows for higher resolutions and wider viewing angles, enabling photographers, videographers, graphic designers and entertainment enthusiasts to create, review and view media with the confidence the colors are true and accurate.

Each Ultra HD display is individually calibrated by Chroma Tune™ and is Technicolor Certified during production to realize natural color expression with an accurate color gamut to ensure true-to-life imagery. As a result, everything displayed on screen is reproduced according to the original intent and there are no mismatches when viewing photos or other imagery. In addition, with the preinstalled Chroma Tune for Toshiba software, users can personalize and manage individual color space control and apply profiles to a variety of software applications.

“Our color certification team worked closely with the engineering team at Toshiba to ensure the highest levels of color calibration on this laptop’s display,” said Manuele Wahl, senior vice president, Licensing at Technicolor. “We applied the same rigor of testing and calibration used on major motion pictures to ensure not only that photographers and videographers now see what they shot in perfect color, but consumers can also experience 4K film and videos as Hollywood directors intended.”

To complement the display’s broad range of colors, the Satellite P55t 4K Ultra HD model includes a full version of Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 5 software, ideal for photographers who want to organize, perfect and share amazing images.

Premium Performance for Demanding Tasks

Designed to give users everything needed to create 4K content with ease, the laptop features a powerful 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 quad core processor2, up to 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3L memory3 and AMD Radeon™ R9 M265X enthusiast-class graphics4 with 2GB GDRR5 video memory. To store and share HD content, the laptop includes a 1TB hard drive5 with a 3D impact sensor, four USB 3.0 ports6, a UHS-II SD card slot, ultrafast 802.11ac Wi-Fi® to stream Ultra HD videos, an HDMI® port capable of 4K output and an available built-in Blu-ray Disc™ Re-writable drive7.

The Satellite P55t is equipped with high-quality stereo speakers by Harman Kardon®, a leader in premium audio, complemented by audio processing by DTS®, providing outstanding audio quality for both movies and games. The laptop also features Toshiba’s unique Sleep & Music feature8, allowing users to take advantage of the high-quality speakers even when the laptop is off.

Stunning Design

With sophisticated styling and a modern design, the Satellite P55t’s design is as striking as its display, featuring edge-to-edge LCD glass, a frameless LED-backlit keyboard, spacious clickpad and a cool brushed Aluminum finish.

The new Satellite P55t 4K Ultra HD will be available on April 22, 2014 direct from Toshiba at toshiba.com/us for $1,499.99 MSRP9.
