Sharp za 2011. godinu ne donosi ništa značajno novo što se tehnologije televizora tiče, što pokazuju specifikacije prvih modela serije 8, a koji se od ovog mjeseca isporučuju za tržište SAD-a. Radi se o modelima LE830U, dostupnima u dijagonalama od 40 do 60″, a sve ih karakterizira Sharpov vlastiti edge-lit LED X-Gen LCD panel, Quattron tehnologija četiri piksela za širok raspon boja i svjetlinu slike, a tu su i ove godine vrlo popularne mrežne funkcije. Tako uz CinemaNow, Netflx i Vudu, novi modeli omogućuju i spajanje na kućne servere i računala za reprodukciju raznovrsnih multimedijalnih datoteka na velikom zaslonu. Cijene u SAD-u se kreću od $1,299.99 do $2,799.99 američkih dolara. Više detalja u službenoj objavi za medije (na engleskom jeziku) u nastavku. HD Televizija se nada kako će ove godine imati priliku isprobati nove Sharpove HDTV-ove.
– SLUŽBENA OBJAVA ZA MEDIJE –
Sharp Electronics Corporation is shipping all four of the LE830 Series AQUOS Quattron LED LCD TV models it introduced at CES in March, including models in 60-, 52-, 46- and 40-inch screen size classes. All models employ Sharp’s proprietary edge-lit LED X-Gen LCD panels and Quattron Quad Pixel Technology for the widest color palette available from LCD TVs and brighter images. Built-in WiFi in all models delivers wide network functionality such as video streaming from the Internet and throughout the home, as well as Sharp’s best-in-class AQUOS Advantage Live customer service.
Each AQUOS Quattron model features Sharp’s proprietary Quad Pixel Technology that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue) of the traditional television pixel structure. This technology enables the reproduction of colors that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD displays, such as the brass color of musical instruments. The addition of the yellow sub-pixel also allows more light to pass through to the panel. Sharp’s advanced pixel control technology minimizes light leakage while offering a wider aperture to let more light through. The combination of these factors results in brighter, more vibrant images. Sharp’s LE830 Series models also employ Quad Pixel Plus to improve image resolution.
These models also offer built-in WiFi and access to Netflix, VUDU and CinemaNow, as well as four HDMI inputs for simple connections to multiple HD components. An attractive slim and narrow bezel design provides a great complement to any home theater viewing environment.
The new Sharp AQUOS Quattron LCD TVs boast extremely low power consumption and are ENERGY STAR 5.1 qualified, the highest energy efficiency specification.
Last week, Sharp Electronics Corporation announced it had been selected to receive a 2011 Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® program. This award recognizes Sharp’s ongoing commitment to promoting energy-efficiency amongst the consumer electronics and business products’ trade and consumers, as well as the company’s efforts to lead by example in the execution of its business operations.
