Toshiba’s World’s First 12.5-inch 4K Ultra HD Convertible Laptop Is Technicolor Color Certified

Technicolor Certifies that Toshiba’s Laptop Displays Colors as Creators Envisioned

The Toshiba Satellite Radius™ 12 is the world’s first 12.5-inch convertible laptop with a 4K Ultra HD display that is Technicolor Color Certified. The Radius 12 is designed with other advanced technologies, including a 6th Gen Intel® Core™ processor, Windows Hello facial recognition and Corning Gorilla® Glass NBT™, to meet the performance demands of today and tomorrow.


“Through our deep relationships with our partners at Microsoft, Intel and Technicolor we have designed a top-of-line compact PC that delivers the new gold standard in screen, sound and performance for an unmatched computing experience on Windows 10,” said Philip Osako, senior director of product marketing, Toshiba America Information Systems, Inc., Digital Products Division. “The Satellite Radius 12 expertly blends the latest technology into an extremely powerful, yet compact and easy-to-carry PC that is not only versatile, but durable enough to handle a highly mobile lifestyle.”


Highest Resolution, Most Color-Accurate Laptop Display Available

The Satellite Radius 12’s brilliant 12.5-inch diagonal IPS touchscreen display with native 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) resolution yields four times as many pixels as full HD display. Designed with color accuracy in mind, the wide gamut RGB display supports 100% Adobe® RGB color space reproduction, making it an ideal choice for content creators. Lab tested and certified by Technicolor®, this laptop’s display also meets the same strict standards for color fidelity used in Hollywood movies. 


“As our global society embraces a mobile lifestyle, Toshiba has released a solution for consumers that offers no compromise when it comes delivering digital life and entertainment experiences,” said Manuèle Wahl, SVP Technology and Trademark Licensing, Technicolor. “Technicolor has certified that the color accuracy offered by the Satellite Radius 12’s 4K Ultra HD display delivers color faithful to the intention of all content creators for viewing and enjoying digital content, including movies, episodic television, online shopping, games and more. Just as Technicolor has spent the past 100 years bringing amazing color to traditional venues in theaters and homes, our partnership with Toshiba will ensure that the same high-fidelity experience is extended to consumers whenever they want – wherever they happen to be.”


Color Certified Assures Accurate Color

The Technicolor Color Certified Satellite Radius 12 has been lab tested and verified to ensure that it meets the same strict standards for color gamut, white point, sRGB balance and gamma used in Hollywood and the media & entertainment industry. Now users can shop online with confidence, knowing that what they see is what they’ll get, view their digital photos or videos onscreen as they shot them, and enjoy stunningly immersive gaming and entertainment experiences, all on the same device, even on the go.

  • Never return another item purchased online due to color discrepancies. When shopping with favorite e-tailers on the Satellite Radius 12, users can order with confidence, knowing that the colors they see onscreen are the very same colors they’ll see in person.
  • What users capture with their camera or smartphone is what they’ll see onscreen. With this Color Certified laptop, they can edit video and retouch photos with no doubt as to what the end result will be. What they see—and what they enhance—is what they get.
  • Filmmakers use color to transport us, to inspire us, to make us feel. Every tint and hue is chosen to bring a story to vibrant, spellbinding life… but only if displayed accurately. The Color Certified Satellite Radius 12 delivers color as the filmmakers intended, for the kind of captivating experience that turns movie watchers into movie lovers.
  • Game developers use color to create breathtaking environments and thrilling experiences for the end user. But those carefully crafted experiences and environments can fall apart if colors aren’t displayed properly on the gamer’s screen. This Satellite Radius 12 ensures consistent, accurate color, so they can immerse themselves in the fantasy, exactly as the creators intended.
  • On the go, users expect mobile devices to serve as everything from screening rooms to game consoles. It’s a tall order considering all content formats and device display settings are not created equal. But this Color Certified laptop is up to the task, bringing movies, shows and games in precisely the colors that their creators intended. Now accurately rendered artist intent is in the palm of their hands, wherever they go.

The compact 2-in-1 Satellite Radius 12 is the third Technicolor Color Certified Toshiba laptop.  Technicolor previously verified that the Satellite P50t and the KIRAbook meet the requirements to display colors accurately, consistently and exactly as content creators intended. 


The Satellite Radius 12 will be available for purchase in the U.S. starting in the fourth quarter of 2015.
