Sharp, who has had an excellent run recently in Australia with their 80″ and now 90″ TVs, is moving into the “ultrahigh definition” TV market with several people at CES speculating that they are set to make a series of UHD TVs for Apple.Their new two super-clear TVs and one ultra-HD computer monitor delivered excellent quality with the models shown today at CES.
At CES Sharp revealed a 32-inch monitor that uses its IGZO technology, based on a semiconductor material called indium gallium zinc oxide.
Sharp touts IGZO for its high resolution, low power, and very accurate touch response. The monitor has a 3,840-by-2,160 resolution, giving it about 8.3 million pixels. Apple’s largest MacBook Pro with Retina display boasts 5.2 million pixels on a 15.4-inch screen.
The monitor, planned for launch in February, responds to 10 points of contact at once — one for each finger.
Sharp announced two new 4K LCD monitors, which will display images at close to four times the overall resolution of traditional 1080p high-definition monitors available Monday.
The new 32-inch LCD monitor series display images at a 3840 by 2160-pixel resolution.
Sharp refers to the new class of ultra-high resolution displays as UltraHD.
