Details of the products and technologies showcased at InfoComm:
Professional 4K2K interactive displays
Available starting in 2013 and being previewed publically for the first time, Sharp’s full line of commercial 4K2K LED displays provide four times 1080p resolution, resulting in a much higher picture quality. Ideal for hospital and healthcare settings; as well as, for surveillance, control room, design and other demanding applications, the large format displays will be available in 32-, 60-, and 70-inch screen size classes to meet a variety of professional display needs.
90-inch LED Monitor
Expanding the boundaries of large-screen LED display sizes, Sharp is unveiling the leading edge 90-inch (diagonal) LED digital display – the world’s largest single panel LED display. Targeted for first quarter of 2013 availability, the new 90-inch (diagonal) LED display represents the next generation in large-screen displays and features a full array LED backlight, and HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution.
Sharp’s PN-E line of large-format professional 60-, 70- and 80-inch screen size classes (models PN-E602, PN-E702 & PN-E802) LED monitors are designed to work virtually wherever, whenever and for whatever the need is. These durable LED monitors are ideal for use in most any demanding environment that requires around-the-clock operation seven days a week. Versions of all screen sizes are also available with integrated protective overlays offering enhanced durability in high-traffic applications. These commercial displays are 24/7 certified and backed by a 3-year on-site limited warranty covering parts, labor and backlight.
AQUOS BOARD(TM) Series
Sharp’s state of the art interactive displays bring big screen collaborative technology to the workplace, with the AQUOS BOARD(TM) interactive display systems in 60- (60 1/16″ diagonal), 70- (69.5″ diagonal) and 80-inch (80″ diagonal) screen size classes. Sharp’s LED backlit touch-panel display is a complete interactive and digital solution for collaborative meetings, presentations, video conferencing, live data and interactive digital signage. This digital meeting solution offers full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, providing a higher quality image display than a traditional projector, in addition to the touch-screen capabilities, creating a truly hands-on experience.
Video Wall Displays
The brilliant PN-V602 video wall monitor combines the world’s slimmest bezel available on a 60-inch class (diagonal) LED monitor with high brightness for semi-outdoor environments. With 24/7 reliability and an almost seamless bezel (just 6.5 mm total between neighboring monitors), the PN-V602 sets a new standard for video wall displays. A full-array LED backlight helps ensure uniform brightness. Outstanding black levels are delivered via local dimming that allows specific groups of LEDs to be dimmed for greater control of brightness and darkness in different areas of the screen. Local dimming also helps deliver a remarkably better contrast ratio (up to 1,000,000:1) and brightness (up to 1,500 cd/m2) compared to conventional LCD monitors, while utilizing significantly less power.
Professional High Brightness Signage
Sharp’s 60-inch (diagonal) PN-A601 is a compelling display, best used for shopping malls, transportation hubs, college campuses and sports and entertainment facilities where high-ambient light may be prevalent. This 60-inch class (diagonal) LED monitor offers ultra-high brightness of 2,000 cd/m2 for superb visibility, even in brightly lit settings. The PN-A601 provides exceptionally high image quality in full 1080p HD, with the energy savings of a full-array backlight in combination with local dimming.
