Sharp is bringing forth five LCD TVs to market in Japan this fall that feature a new contrast-enhancing, glare-reducing panel called Moth Eye. Sharp will release five Aquos Quattron 3D XL sets from 46 to 80 inches. They will also feature the company’s trademark Aquos City online services and Quattron RGBY subpixel arrangement.
Unveiled for the first time a CEATEC 2012, here you are the first series of TVs featuring Sharp Moth Eye technology. By adding tiny (on a nanoscale level) irregularities on its panel Sharp is capable to drastically reduce glare while still being able to display bright and perfect colors and contrast, and the first TVs to support this new Moth Eye technology is the XL9 Series from Sharp.
Can't wait for these to hit store shelves world-wide. Who wants one?
Since it's 3D, it will probably more in-line with the price of the current 844U
Edit: The source article states "Available in 46, 52, 60, 70 and 80” with a price range between 280,000 up to 1 Million yen"
1 Million yen for the 80" is equal to about $12,500 USD.
So it will be more than 2 times the cost of their current 80" AQUOS 3D TV? $5,999 versus $12,500
