Sharp 3D TV models could soon come packing the company’s quad pixel imaging tech, until now reserved for its finest, slimmest 2D goggleboxes. How do we know? It’s got a model up and running and is showing it off!
The new range of Sharp Aquos LED TVs we scoped at CES in January blew all the 3D TV competition out of the water when it came to image quality: it was strictly 2D, but the added yellow pixel along with the traditional red, green and blue led to some eye popping colours. Now for the first time, Sharp has developed and demoed a Sharp 3D TV with the same quatron tech.
While Sharp is keeping the precise details on its new Sharp 3D TV close to its chest, the boobtube giant has revealed that it uses active shutter 3D tech, though whether the refresh rate is the same as the 240Hz Aquos 2D line coming to the UK is yet to be confirmed. Japanese gadget hounds Akihabara News also got hands on snaps of a 60-inch Sharp 3D TV with the technology baked in, so we’d expect a variety of sizes.
Sharp also promises that its new Sharp 3D TV display churns out an image 1.8 times brighter than that of its own previous LCDs, which is fine by us, since one of main gripes with 3D TV right now is visibility.
What Sharp hasn’t revealed though is when we’ll be seeing this new Sharp 3D TV tech actually ship, but we hope it’s soon – we wouldn’t want Sony and LG to get the jump on it with their measly three pixel colour screens now would we?
