UV2A Panels!

CES 2010 • BOOTH #11017 • LAS VEGAS CONVENTION CENTER

SHARP® EXPANDS THE LCD COLOR GAMUT WITH A GROUNDBREAKING TECHNOLOGY IN THREE NEWLY DESIGNED AQUOS® LED LCD TV SERIES


Revolutionary four-primary-color technology enables more than one trillion colors

Three UltraBrilliant Edge-lit AQUOS LED LCD TV Series with sizes ranging from 40- (40" diagonal) to an industry-first 68-inch (68 1/32" diagonal) screen class

Newly developed dramatic, contemporary design sets the standard

Flagship LE920 Series offers AquoMotion 240 for clearer fast-moving video

AQUOS Net™ adds streaming video for enhanced home theater enjoyment

LAS VEGAS, January 6, 2010 – Sharp unveils three new AQUOS LED LCD TV series, breaking new ground in LCD technology and design. Premiering in the U.S. in early 2010, this next-generation set of UltraBrilliant Edge-lit AQUOS LED LCD TVs unveils a revolutionary technology, introducing never-before-seen colors to the TV industry. Unveiled by the company at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Sharp's proprietary four-primary-color technology enables more than a trillion colors to be displayed for more sparkling golds, Caribbean blues and sunflower yellows.
"As a pioneer in the LCD industry, Sharp continues to advance the technology, introducing it's first LED-backlight LCD TV on the market less than two years ago and paving the way for larger screen sizes, thin designs and Internet connectivity," said Mikio Katayama, president and chief operating officer, Sharp Corporation. "We have changed the way an LCD TV produces an image with the new four-primary-color technology, allowing us to broaden the visual experience and immerse consumers in a new world of color."

Four Primary Color Technology
This four-primary-color display employs a four-color filter, for the first time in the industry, that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue). This combination expands the color gamut, faithfully rendering nearly all colors that can be discerned with the unaided human eye. Four-primary-color technology enables the display to reproduce colors that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD displays, such as the golden yellow color of brass instruments.
When combined with Sharp's 1080p X-Gen LCD panel, which incorporates UV2A Technology, the displays offer dramatic reduction in energy consumption compared to conventional fluorescent-backlight LCD TVs.
Continuing Sharp's history of innovation and originality, the new AQUOS LEDs offer a stunning new contemporary design that pushes the envelope for flat-screen television artistry. At only 1.6-inches thin, the full-front panel glass (on the LE920 and LE820 series) extends to meet the slim border for a subtle edge that befits the elegance of a modern home theater.
These advanced AQUOS LED LCD TVs also include Sharp's newest version of AQUOS Net, which delivers streaming video with Netflix®. AQUOS Net gives users instant access to customized Web-based content as well as AQUOS Advantage Live real-time customer support. The new AQUOS LED LCD TV product lines are all compliant with Energy Star® Version 4.0 standards which become effective in May 2010 and are equipped with Sharp's OPC function that automatically adjusts the unit's brightness based on the lighting of the room.


LE920 Series
The LE920 AQUOS LED LCD TV Series represents the flagship line of this new suite of AQUOS products, offering the pinnacle in image quality and connectivity. This Full-HD 1080p LCD TV Series, available in an industry-first 68-inch (LC-68LE920UN) screen class size, as well 60- (LC-60LE920UN) and 52-inch (LC-52LE920UN) screen class sizes (68 1/32", 60 1/32" and 52 1/32" diagonals respectively), combines Sharp's Full HD 1080p X-Gen LCD panel with its UltraBrilliant Edge-lit LED backlight to display vibrant colors and deep blacks. Additionally, this 1080p TV offers outstanding performance for fast-action imagery, employing AquoMotion 240, which virtually eliminates blur and artifacts on fast-moving video. Offering extreme flexibility, the LE920 Series includes a USB media player for digital video/music/photo enjoyment.

LE820/810 Series
Offering additional large-screen AQUOS LED LCD TV options, the LE820 and LE810 Series are available in 60- (LC-60LE820UN and LC-60LE810UN), 52- (LC-52LE820UN and LC-52LE810UN), 46- (LC-46LE820UN and LC-46LE810UN) and 40-inch (LC-40LE820UN and LC-40LE810UN) screen class sizes (60 1/32", 52 1/32", 45 63/64" and 40" diagonals respectively). Similar to the LE920 Series, these models combine Sharp's X-Gen LCD panel with an UltraBrilliant Edge-lit LED backlight. Sharp's proprietary Fine Motion Enhanced technology is included for 120 Hz Frame Rate Conversion, as well as fast response time (4 ms).

Advanced Connectivity
Four HDMI™ with Instaport™ quick switching to avoid delay when switching between sources
1080p component video input
RS-232C input for custom installations
PC input so the TV serves a dual purpose as a PC monitor
Ethernet jack for high-speed Internet

All edge-lit and no 3d. Seems rather inferior to the new sets announced by LG, Vizio and Toshiba today.

So far the 3D being shown is still a gimmick so I wouldn't be so concerned about that. Your right that others have more "features". However, this new panel should provide for better picture quality. Isn't picture quality the most important feature?

U2VA should help in two important areas. Viewing angle and black levels. From the press conference on U2VA it seems that local dimming LED might not have the same benefit as it does on other types of LCD panels.

It's a statement I stand by. The current 3D technology is a joke. Until we can get something that doesn't require glasses and has great picture quality I don't see it taking off. It's just a slightly improved rehash of the crap we see every few years.

With that said I don't want to turn this into another thread about the merits of current 3D technology. It's more about these new Sharp sets and the U2VA panels.

I'm kind of annoyed at Sharp. They have been selling 700UN X-Gen panels for a while and now they are going to call those UV2A 4 primary color panels the same X-Gen name?

This is interesting.

I am confused by that myself. It looks like they just incorporated the tech into X-Gen instead of using this as a chance to hype U2VA.

I don't think all UV2A (X-Gen) panels have 4 primary colors. Some of them still have 3 primary colors.

I think you may have missed the fact the 700U is White LED while the New Panel will be RGB LED with Yellow LED added much like high end printing combine more than just the three. RGB is far more costly than white and color gamut is been proven to be much higher than white on the XS1 RGB LED from last year which was far to expensive for 99% of consumers.

I must admit though a disappointment in the lack of 3D initiatives but quite happy that they are upping the size to 68" though it seems if Vizio can bring the quality up a notch they've been trumped by Vizio it appears in size and price points for a 72" with 3D and 10 million to one Megacontrast ratio. I read that Sharp may have a demo 3D at the show though that may be preproduction and delayed until later this year or next.

I think the "QuadPixel" means the pixels inside the LCD panel , not the backlit

yea westa6969, this isn't like the previous sharp 4 wave or 5 wave backlight. its that extra pixel that allows the trillion colors. Still I wished they named it X-Gen2 or something else.

Incorrect, the LCD pixels are now red, green, blue, and yellow. The sets are LED edge lit with white LEDs. With the UV2A panel that shouldn't be a big deal with the tighter spacing between each pixel. Allowing for less backlight bleed and making for better black levels.

At only 1.6-inches thin, the full-front panel glass (on the LE920 and LE820 series) extends to meet the slim border

Is the 820 +$400 over the 810 just because the 820's glass covers the bezel, or is this also implying the 820's 1.6-inches is thinner than the 810? Or are there other unmentioned differences?

I, for one, can't wait for the opportunity to watch TV with goggles on.

This whole 3d thing kind of bums me out. Makes me think manufacturers were spending r&d on a gimmick as oppose to ensuring the quality of the tv's build and picture quality. Im not too into the whole 3d thing yet. It seems like its hear to stay with all the programming announcements, but only time will tell. Its time for me to purchase a tv so i im following CES to see what catches my eye

So Chris,

Bottom-line - - - would you personally rather have the Sharp "Quad-Pixel" display, or a 3-D enabled display today, and for the next 3 years of daily use?

I know I'd go for the larger size screens and higher PQ than 3d, even for the next 3 years.

I could care less about 3d enabled displays as there's still no 3D content to speak of and even when there is (& i bet it's at least 2 years before there's any change there) do you realistically see yourself wearing 3d glasses all the time?

Actually it is not going to matter, almost all high end TV's will be 3D this year. This 3D feature NEVER has to be used if one does not want to use it. However, put the glasses on, give this a chance, get used to it ( takes some getting used to) , and OH MY !!!! Amazing 3D that a person can almost touch!!

Keep in mind you need more then just the TV to be 3D. There has to be the content, glasses, other HDMI 1.4 spec equipment. Then there are a couple of different standards. If 3D wants to succeed there has to be a universal standard. This is like VHS vs. Beta and Blu-ray vs. HD DVD all over again.

Bottom line does the UV2A panel in the Sharp look better then other brands panels? Better black levels? Better viewing angles?

As my life gets more busy, I find that I don't really have that much time to watch the sets that I already own (3) and I can't really see that 3D will be much more than a passing interest at the moment. That may change though.......

I have two 3 year old Sharps now and a 1 year old Toshiba (low end 502R model) and despite the fact that the Toshiba is a low end set, it blows away the 3 year old Sharps for PQ in every thing but motion blurring. I would love to see how a high end panel like a UV2A compares to my old sets.

Bottom line does the UV2A panel in the Sharp look better then other brands panels? Na, not really. Better black levels? Better viewing angles? Average, no big issues.
