Earlier this week, Toshiba announced a variety of new models in their REGZA LCD television line for release throughout the Spring and Summer of 2007. Ranging in size from 42-inches to 57-inches, seven of the newly released models will feature full 1080p native resolution.

The REGZA 1080p Full HD (HL167 series) displays will come in 42, 42 and 52-inch variation and offer a 90%+ color gamut and a feature that Toshiba calls “native mode” which is said to prevent any overscanning of signals. The displays also feature HDMI – CEC connections, which enable bi-directional communication between the TV and other sources so remote control can be centralized through the TV without any infrared or RF communication to connected devices.

Toshiba’s higher end Cinema Series REGZA (LX177 series) displays will feature additional enhancements such as 120Hz anti-blur technology to reduce flicker and other motion artifacts, as well as Deep Color and XVycc technologies to broaden the display’s color gamut. The Cinema Series models feature additional home theater control inputs as well as Virtual Dolby surround and an enhanced universal remote.

Below is the release schedule for these new models:

REGZA 1080p Full HD
42HL167 (March/April 2007)
47HL167 (June/July 2007)
52HL167 (June/July 2007)
