Sharp Corporation will introduce into the Japanese market two models in the new LB Series of AQUOS Quattron 3D LCD TVs. The LCD panels in the LB Series (52V- and 46V-inch) use Sharpâ€™s proprietary four-primary-color technology, and both models feature 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc (BD) recorders.
The LCD panels in the LB Series use four-primary-color technology developed by Sharp based on its proprietary UV2A technology2. This technology adds Y (yellow) to the three RGB (red, green, blue) primary colors and significantly improves light utilization efficiency to provide a brightness approximately 1.8 times greater3 than conventional three-primary-color LCD panels, enabling users to enjoy vivid, impressive 2D and 3D images. In addition, these models are equipped with a new Quattron Pure Mode that automatically optimizes high-definition images to match the four-primary-color technology, resulting in smooth, natural reproduction of images from the built-in Blu-ray Disc recorder.
The built-in 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc recorder enables viewers to enjoy Blu-ray 3Dâ„¢ video using a single unit. Plus, these recorders are compatible with BDXLâ„¢4, the new format for multi-layer recordable Blu-ray Discs, and can record up to approximately 87 hours5 of high-definition TV programming in extended recording mode.
These models also offer functions for enhanced connectivity with peripheral devices such as digital cameras and mobile phones, and support wireless LAN adaptors.
Sharp will continue to expand its lineup of AQUOS Quattron LCD TVs featuring four-primary-color technology to meet the diverse needs of consumers.
