    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.
