Sharp Introduces Display Technologies And UDTVs at CES


This year, Sharp comes to CES with its new IGZO display technology, Ultra-HD TVs, monitors and LED TVs. The company is also showing a glimpse of the high definition future with a demonstration of 8K resolution on an 85" (diagonal) screen size class TV.

For the first time in the United States, the company is showcasing the possibilities of IGZO (Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide) and introducing the first new products that use it.

IGZO is a compound that replaces the industry standard amorphous silicon material used for the active layer in thin-film transistors (TFTs). IGZO's transistors are much smaller than traditional LCDs thanks to significantly higher electron mobility. Therefore, more data can be shown in a single display, creating a detailed image - up to four times that of conventional full-HD or 1080p LCDs. IGZO can also maintain the onscreen data for a certain period of time without refreshing the data, even when the current is off. Compared to conventional LCDs, IGZO displays have also drastically minimized the noise caused during touch input.

At CES, Sharp is revealing its 32" (31.5" diagonal) class professional LCD monitors, the PN-K321 and a touchscreen monitor prototype, which feature IGZO technology with ultra-high-definition 4K X 2K resolution (3,840 X 2,160 pixels). These models also boast a thin design at just 35mm. Additionally, the series is outfitted with two HDMI ports and one DisplayPort interface which are both capable of using a single connector cable in order to transmit an ultra high resolution signal.

The series consists of two 32" class models that are differentiated by touch capability. One of the two models features 10-point multi-touch capability utilizing advanced projected capacitive technology. Its design is easy to use with either your fingers or the included stylus. The non-touch model will be available in February 2013 and the 10-point multi-touch model will be available shortly thereafter through Sharp’s network of Pro AV dealers, distributors and integrators.

Sharp is also demonstrating two large screen Ultra HD televisions. The ICC Purios and the AQUOS Ultra HD. Developed jointly with I-cubed Research Center Inc., ICC Purios combines Ultra HD resolution and the ICC (integrated cognitive creation) image processor, which reproduces the "cognitive" process by which the human brain interprets light stimuli. Sharp claims that this process provides a similar sense of depth, texture and perspective to what people experience when looking directly at an object for a lifelike viewing experience where everything is in sharper focus. Sharp's ICC Purios UDTV is the first display to pass the 400 tests necessary to receive THX 4K Display certification, confirming that the display not only meets industry 4K performance guidelines, but that it maintains content accuracy true to the original HD image. This model will come to market summer 2013.

The AQUOS Ultra HD TV boasts Ultra HD resolution, plus a new screen technology, introduced as Moth Eye that virtually eliminates glare while preserving color vibrancy.

Sharp is also showcasing its full line of 2013 AQUOS LED TVs, with new designs and large screen sizes such as 60" (diagonal), 70" (69 ½ " diagonal), 80" (diagonal) and 90" (diagonal), the world's largest commercially available LED TV.

The 2013 AQUOS line features two series with Quattron technology. All large screen AQUOS LED TVs are smart TVs with dual-core processors. The flagship 8-Series features Super Bright, an intelligent contrast engine and a brighter panel to create a brighter picture and extraordinary contrast.

For the first time, more than half of the AQUOS 2013 large screen LED TV lineup will feature Sharp’s exclusive Quattron technology in the 7- and 8-Series.

In the new AQUOS 8-Series, Sharp is introducing 'Super Bright' which combines an intelligent contrast engine with a 50 percent higher brightness panel to create Sharp’s brightest picture with more contrast. The intelligent contrast engine constantly analyzes the signal and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the screen.

Introduced in June of 2012, and standing at nearly 4 feet tall and spanning 6 feet and 7 inches wide, the 90" (diagonal) AQUOS is the world’s largest LED TV and continues as part of the 2013 AQUOS lineup. Despite its size, the TV is relatively thin and light. Weighing only 141 pounds and less than 5 inches deep, the unit is easy to mount on a wall.

All three large screen series (6-, 7-, 8-Series) in the 2013 AQUOS lineup will be smart, with a dual-core processor, Web browser and built-in Wi-Fi. Sharp’s SmartCentral platform provides an easy way for consumers to access virtually unlimited Web based content.

In the 2013 AQUOS lineup, SmartCentral will include an expanded selection of apps, Flash and HTML5 supported Web browsing and Android and iOS remote control operation. It will also feature Sharp Beam, a free app that enables users to send content from an iOS and Android smartphone or tablet to the big screen with a flick. A new SmartCentral feature gives users the ability to split screens for simultaneous TV viewing and Web browsing. Finally, Netflix subscribers will be able to search for content on their smartphone or tablet and then select to watch it on their AQUOS TV with Netflix "Second Screen" capability.

Eleven of Sharp’s large screen AQUOS models feature full HD 1080p active 3D technology, delivering twice the resolution of passive 3D. New for 2013 is the use of Bluetooth 3D glasses that are not subject to interference.

6-Series models feature 20W audio. The 7- and 8-Series models add Yamaha DSP technology and a 15W subwoofer, for a total of 35W.

Sharp is also demonstrating two audio products at CES:

The HT-SB60, a soundbar system designed from the ground up to be used exclusively for 60" and larger TVs. The system provides powerful sound via a 2.1 channel arrangement with 310 total watts of power and a wireless subwoofer. Its flexible design offers options for horizontal and wall mounted use.

The second, the GX-M10 Portable Audio System has built-in CD and iPhone, iPod and iPad docking stations, as well as microphone and guitar inputs with input level control. Operating on AC/DC or battery outputting 100 watts of power and sporting LED accent lighting on its dual subwoofers, the GX-M10 consistently delivers high power audio no matter where it is placed.

Sharp is also demonstrating the next generation of Quattron technology at CES 2013. Using a specialized sub-pixel signal processing for Sharp's red-green-blue-yellow Quattron pixel panel, the next genesis of Quattron will allow the control and use of these colors individually, enabling the reproduction of double resolution in one singular pixel. As a result of this feature, the next generation of Quattron can increase the effective resolution of a 1080p panel to Ultra HD-like for video and still image content as well as Web based text. The next generation of Quattron technology also includes specialized signal processing for scaling up from 1080p to 4K images. Sharp expects to introduce products with the next generation of Quattron technology in 2014.

The company is also showing a glimpse of the high definition future with a demonstration of 8K resolution on an 85" (diagonal) screen size class TV. Sharp was the first brand to showcase this technology at CES 2012. 8K is a 7680 x 4320 resolution, the equivalent of 16 times the pixel resolution of HDTV and presents an unprecedented level of incredibly detailed, high-quality images.
