Sharp LCD tv
New designed Sharp LCD tv series : Sharp unveils three new AQUOS LED LCD TV series, breaking new ground in LCD technology and design. Premiering in the U.S. this next-generation set of UltraBrilliant Edge-lit AQUOS LED LCD TVs unveils a revolutionary technology, introducing never-before-seen colors to the TV industry. Unveiled by the company at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Sharp’s proprietary four primary color technology enables more than a trillion colors to be displayed for more sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows. The new AQUOS series of Sharp LCD TV will be immediately available except for the Sharp LC-68LE920UN, LC-60LE920UN and LC-52LE920UN which will be available in May. |
Sharp LED backlight LCD tv increases visual experience
“As a pioneer in the LCD industry, Sharp continues to advance the technology, introducing it’s first LED backlight LCD tv on the market less than two years ago and paving the way for larger screen sizes, thin designs and Internet connectivity,” said Mikio Katayama, president and chief operating officer, Sharp Corporation. “We have changed the way an LCD tv produces an image with the new four primary color technology, allowing us to broaden the visual experience and immerse consumers in a new world of color.”
Sharp LCD LED tv with four primary color technology
This four-primary-color display employs a four color filter, for the first time in the industry, that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue). This combination expands the color gamut, faithfully rendering nearly all colors that can be discerned with the unaided human eye. Four primary color technology enables the display to reproduce colors that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD displays, such as the golden yellow color of brass instruments. When combined with Sharp’s 1080p X-Gen LCD panel, which incorporates UV2A Technology, the displays of the Sharp LED LCD tv series offer dramatic reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional fluorescent-backlight LCD TVs.
Design of Sharp LCD tv gives modern home theater elegance
Continuing Sharp’s history of innovation and originality, the new AQUOS LEDs offer a stunning new contemporary design that pushes the envelope for flat-screen television artistry. At only 1.6-inches thin, the full-front panel glass (on the Sharp LE920 and LE820 series) extends to meet the slim border for a subtle edge that befits the elegance of a modern home theater.
