Sharp today unveiled nearly twenty 60-inch and bigger class TV models as part of its new line of AQUOS LED TVs, with more models in the 60-inch, 70-inch and 80-inch screen classes that feature Quattron technology.
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. Quattron color technology adds a yellow pixel to the standard red-green-blue sub-pixel structure, delivering more than a billion colors. Screen brightness is also enhanced without compromising color accuracy.
In the new AQUOS 8-Series, Sharp introduces Super Bright, a feature which combines an intelligent contrast engine with a 50 percent higher brightness panel. 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.
All three large screen series (6-, 7-, 8-Series) in the 2013 AQUOS lineup will equipped with a dual-core processor, web browser and built-in Wi-Fi.
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 consumers the ability to split screens for simultaneous TV viewing and Web browsing. The new Wallpaper Mode will allow pre-installed artwork images or home photos from a USB drive on the AQUOS LED screen at a reduced light level that mirrors museum conditions, so the screen blends beautifully into a room’s décor with extremely low power consumption.
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 powerful 20W audio for high fidelity with clear voice. The 7- and 8-Series models add Yamaha DSP technology and a 15W subwoofer for a total of 35W.
