Sharp Introduces Ultra High-Resolution Displays with the Industry’s Thinnest¹ Design

This week at CES in Las Vegas, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, is presenting its new 32” class professional LCD monitor series, which features Sharp’s ground-breaking IGZO™ technology and touts 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution.

According to industry research, demand for Ultra High-Definition displays, commonly referred to as “4K2K”, is forecast to grow across numerous industries and verticals, including graphics and video editing and production, financial-services operations that require intensive use of graphs and small text, and computer aided design (CAD) professions that create detailed digital drawings or blueprints. The IGZO professional display series from Sharp delivers ultra high resolution (3,840 × 2,160 pixels), which is four times the pixel resolution of full 1080p high definition.

“As we introduce Sharp’s proprietary IGZO technology into the first series of professional display products, we continue to drive innovation with game-changing functionality,” said Doug Albregts, president, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. “We are not only excited about the initial application of this new technology, but foresee broad usage throughout complementary industries where high definition viewing is demanded.”

Featuring much smaller thin-film transistors (TFTs) as compared to conventional displays, IGZO technology also significantly increases the amount of light transmitted per pixel. As a result, these advanced displays portray vibrant and crisp content with the ability to zoom in to examine the detail of a picture or text, or pan out to view content from a wider angle. This can help boost operational efficiency and reduce eyestrain by sparing users the need to scroll frequently.

Combining Sharp's IGZO technology with a brilliant white, edge lit LED backlight system, these state-of-the-art monitors measure only 35 millimeters at their thickest point (that’s less than an inch and a half), making them the industry’s thinnest design in their class.(1)

Additionally, the series is outfitted with two HDMI® ports and one DisplayPort interface which are both capable of using a single connector cable in order to transmit an ultra high resolution signal, helping to simplify cable management and reduce desktop clutter. Backed by Sharp’s 3-year limited warranty, both models support landscape and portrait orientation and are designed for 24/7 operation.

The series consists of two 32” class models that are differentiated by touch capability. One of the two models features 10-point multi-touch capability utilizing advanced projected capacitive technology. Its intuitive design is easy to use with either your fingers or the included stylus that enables precision, accuracy and smooth handwriting. The non-touch model will be available in February 2013 and the 10-point multi-touch model will be available shortly thereafter through Sharp’s network of Pro AV dealers, distributors and integrators.

¹As of December 21, 2012 for 30-inch or larger 4K2K (3,840 × 2,160 pixels) monitors (based on Sharp research).
