Toshiba Exhibits HD DVD Player At CEATEC JAPAN 2005

TOKYO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 3, 2005--Toshiba Corporation today
announced that it would demonstrate its prototype HD DVD player at
CEATEC JAPAN 2005, Asia's premier international exhibition of
high-technology and electronics. Look for the player at the Toshiba
booth (1A04).

The demonstration will feature HD DVD players hooked up to digital LCD
TVs from Toshiba's "Z1000" series, brand new high definition TVs that
are all set to debut in the Japanese market in late October. The demo
will allow viewers the experience of HD DVD's superior image quality
on a large, high-definition screen -- and to see the difference HD DVD
will bring to home entertainment.

The Toshiba booth will also feature HD DVD discs and notebook PC
integrating a slim HD DVD read drive. CEATEC JAPAN 2005 will run from
October 4 to 8 at Makuhari Messe.

Features of HD DVD

HD DVD is standardized by the DVD Forum, the international association
of some 240 companies, and its physical, file and application formats
have been all approved by the Forum.

In addition to a versatility that assures support for many
applications, including players, recorders, PCs and automotive
devices, HD DVD's main features are:

1) The same disc structure as DVD, two 0.6mm-thick polycarbonate discs
bonded back-to-back, makes it much easier for HD DVD to achieve
backward compatibility with DVD. It also assures easier manufacturing
of discs and hardware devices, resulting in lower manufacturing costs.

2) Robust playability, with no need for a disc cartridge to protect
against surface blemishes and fingerprints.

3) The ability to meet all capacity demands. The DVD Forum has
approved HD DVD-ROM discs with a data capacity of 30GB, and higher
capacities are on the way. High data capacity is achieved by adopting
a shorter wavelength blue-violet laser and advanced data processing
technologies, assuring the ability to store large capacity data
sources including high-definition images.

4) Adoption of iHD technology to deliver enhanced user interactivity
on PCs and assures optimization for both AV and PC applications.

"Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
-- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
