Interestings. They have added some pricing info and other details....
What some might find interesting is that they explicitly break the new "rules" set by TI and name the chip used in the 1080p sets (xHD4, as we have been calling it):
The technology at the center of the new 1080p sets is a Digital Light Engine named TALEN X. This system utilizes Texas Instruments' xHD4 chip and incorporates Toshiba's DEEP Picture and Xtreme BLAC technologies to provide high resolution with improved brightness and contrast.
Another development from Toshiba is the incorporation of the new PixelPure AT (Adaptive Technology) Digital Video Processing. This next generation processing delivers the consistently high picture quality expected from Toshiba TVs. Key PixelPure AT components include:
* Motion Adaptive De-Interlacing
* Adaptive MPEG Processing
* Adaptive Contrast Enhancement
* Adaptive Color Enhancement"
No contrast ratio numbers are quoted, but the pricing seems nice (NOTE: the naming convention is that the 95 series are 720p, while the 195 series are 1080p):
"Pricing and Expected Availability

46HM95 (July 2005, $2,499.99); 52HM95 (June 2005, $2,799.99); 62HM95 (July 2005, $3,299.99); 56HM195 (August 2005, $3,499.99); 62HM195 (August 2005, $3,799.99); 72HM195 (September 2005, $4,999.99)

and BEST OF ALL
"All 1080p DLP sets from Toshiba offer a new cosmetic design featuring space-saving bottom speakers."
Just when I was about to order the HLR5667 things start looking really interesting this summer...
Now for all the other info (NOTE: 2 HDMI's):
"The 2005 Line-up
Toshiba's TheaterWide line of high definition DLP Projection televisions will include screen sizes ranging from 46" to 72". The TheaterWide line will include three 720p models (46HM95 (46"); 52HM95 (52"); 62HM95 (62")) and three 1080p models (56HM195 (56"); 62HM195 (62"); 72HM195 (72")). Through the use of Xtreme BLAC (Black Level Aperture Control) the new 1080p sets offer stunning resolution and enhanced contrast ratios ensuring crystal clear picture quality.
Toshiba's Cinema Series line of high definition DLP Projection Televisions will also include 720p and 1080p models. With Screen sizes ranging from 52" to 72" the Cinema Series line will offer two 720p models (52HMX95 (52"); 62HMX95 (62")) and three 1080p models (56MX195 (56"); 62MX195 (62"); 72MX195 (72")). The 52" and 62" 720p sets feature a new all black cabinet with a high gloss black bezel. All 1080p DLP sets from Toshiba offer a new cosmetic design featuring space-saving bottom speakers.
In an effort to provide consumers with a richer home theater experience, Toshiba has added exciting new features to its 2005 line. ChannelBrowser lets consumers use a "back" button - similar to a PC browser back button - that will allow easy access to recently viewed channels. All new Cinema Series DLP PTV models will include THINC (Toshiba Home Interactive Network Connection) home entertainment networking. This revolutionary feature allows consumers to connect their TV to their PC and playback MP3 audio files and JPEG pictures using only the TV remote.
The DLP line-up uses the new Radiance 150 Hi-Bright Lamp for noticeably brighter images. The line also employs the TheaterFine DFP Screen technology with Anti-Glare Coating that results in increased detail and noticeably deeper blacks.
Fully Integrated Sets
All DLP sets in the Toshiba 2005 line offer integrated HDTV tuners and are loaded with features for a smooth transition into HDTV. Toshiba's DLP projection TVs are Digital Cable Ready with ATSC/QAM digital tuning and a CableCARD slot, and TV Guide On Screen® interactive program guide, for simple, user-friendly channel navigation. All integrated DLP TVs also feature IEEE1394 (DTVLink) ports for connection to an optional Symbio HD Recorder.
In addition, these models feature the TheaterNet 1394/IR control system for external device control, and an OmniViewer Memory Card Slot (which accepts five types of memory cards) with JPEG viewer for viewing of digital photos.
The full line of Toshiba DLP TVs feature many of the key technologies that the company has been known for including: CableClear® DNR, SRS® WOW, HD Window POP, and now Dual HDMI digital inputs. "
