Sharp is first with 85-inch LCD Super Hi-Vision TV: 16x HDTV Resolution

Sharp and NHK develop the first direct-view LCD display with the future TV standard Super Hi-Vision.

It is 2020 and you are at Best Buy. The new TV you are going to buy has 7,680x4,320 pixels, 100-inch size and is 1mm thin. Sharp and NHK start to make the future high definition standard Super Hi-Vision more real with the development of a 85-inch LCD TV supporting 16x the resolution of today's HDTVs.

NHK plans to start trial broadcasts of Super Hi-Vision in 2020. Super Hi-Vision promises life-like image quality. For the first time time we can actually see this resolution in action on a direct-view display. The Sharp Super Hi-Vision TV users Sharp's UV2A LCD technology. UV2A stands for Ultraviolet induced multi-domain Vertical Alignment. A photo-alignment technology for precisely controlling the alignment of liquid crystal molecules in a simple LCD panel structure.

The Sharp Super Hi-Vision TV has a brightness of 300cm/m2 and 10 bits of each RGB color.

The World's first Super Hi-Vision LCD TV will be shown to the public at NHK’s Science & Technology Research Laboratories in Tokyo from May 26 to 29, 2011. Photos of the 85-inch Super Hi-Vision TV can be found on Japanese AV Watch.
