Sharp Large-Screen LED TV Line-up
Introducing more than 20 large screen 60-inch plus class TVs, Sharp today announced its new line of AQUOSÂ® LED TVs, featuring picture quality enhancements, advanced smart connectivity and new designs. Serving as its flagship model, Sharp unveiled the first 80-inch (80â€ diagonal) screen size class Quattron 3D LED TV, available in April 2012.
Sharp will expand upon its market-leading selection of large-screen LED TVs in 2012 by offering a wider array of choices to consumers, including more than 20 models in screen size classes of 60-inches or larger, many featuring 3D in 120Hz or 240Hz panel options. The AQUOS Quattron models will feature the new Quad Pixel Plus II technology. All Sharp AQUOS LED TVs meet or exceed ENERGY STAR version 5.3 standards, drawing a relatively small amount of power for their screen sizes. The 80â€ class LC-80LE632U is the most energy-efficient flat-panel TV available today, as measured by power consumption per square inch. On average, it costs just $22 per year in electricity use to operate.
Sharp is introducing Quad Pixel Plus II, the latest innovation for its exclusive Quattron technology. Quad Pixel Plus II, available on the 60-inch (60 1/32â€ diagonal) and 70-inch (69 Â½â€ diagonal) classes Sharp AQUOS Quattron 8 and 9 series LED TVs, offers even greater detail, smoother lines and color transitions. Sharp is improving picture quality even more in the 9 Series with the introduction of full array LED backlighting with local dimming, which provides deep black levels and an optimal contrast ratio, while reducing energy consumption. Local dimming allows specific groups of LEDs to be dimmed for greater control of brightness and darkness in different areas of the screen for outstanding black levels.
