Today, Sharp announced four new additions to its large format LED-backlit LCD product line.
These TFT-LCDs include two panels in the 10.4-inch class, one 12.1-inch
panel re-issue, and one 15.0-inch panel. The LCDs are ideal for industrial applications including Factory Automation, Gaming, Medical Devices, Point of Sale (POS) Terminals, Transportation, Test and Measurement, and many others. The new LCDs will be on display along with the rest of Sharp?s LED-backlit product line at the Society for Information Display?s 49th-annual Display Week 2011 exhibition in Los Angeles, CA, May 17 ? 19.
Sharp continues to introduce new and replacement LED-backlit panels to meet customer demand, continuing its migration from CCFL LCD products to an all-LED backlight line-up. The displays feature specifications perfectly suited to meet the rugged demands of the Industrial Application (IA) market. These include excellent viewability, resistance to mechanical shock and vibration, long operating life, and performance in extreme temperatures ? including reaching full brightness upon power-up, regardless of ambient temperature conditions.
LED backlighting in LCDs helps lower power consumption and reduces electromagnetic interference (EMI) compared to CCFL-based products. LEDs are also Mercury (Hg) free, further raising the environmental performance of LED-backlit LCD products.
