Sharp Demonstrates Breakthroughs In Pro AV Technology At InfoComm 2013
Sharp’s cutting-edge technology shows users how their vision can become reality
MAHWAH, N.J., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Leading the Pro AV industry with the largest professional grade displays and focusing on ultra-high definition resolution and energy efficient LED backlighting, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA), a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, is bringing its portfolio of products to InfoComm 2013. Whether it’s a larger-than-life 90-inch class monitor, an ultra high definition IGZO display, or a Sharp AQUOS BOARD(TM) Interactive Display System that can communicate wirelessly with iOS and Android tablets, Sharp offers revolutionary Professional Display products that can enhance every experience. Attendees will encounter these products and others, seamlessly integrated into various real-world scenarios, in booth #3301.
“Business customers today are looking for improved ways to display information and communicate more seamlessly. Whether they want to display images in real-life size for a retail setting, showcase graphics in high definition clarity for post-production editing, or ensure seamless meeting collaboration, Sharp’s state-of-the-art professional-grade products can offer a variety of solutions,” said Mike Marusic, Senior VP, Business Solutions Group. “Whatever a user’s vision or need is for their business, the integration of our technology can help create endless possibilities for our customers.”
Some of the key product families Sharp will be demonstrating in vertical markets include:
The Ultimate in Ultra HD
Sharp’s PN-K321 LED 31.5-inch diagonal monitor utilizes the company’s IGZO technology to provide extraordinary ultra-high definition and energy efficiency. By offering four-times the pixel resolution of conventional 1080P, it provides unprecedented picture clarity, making it ideal for tasks where detailed precision is mandatory. The world’s thinnest ultra-high definition monitor in its class, it is just 35 mm at its thickest point, and is easy to connect.
Also on display will be the PN-K322B UHD 10 point-multi-touch IGZO model. This 32-inch class touch-screen version boasts the same resolution, LED backlighting and thin frame, but adds an integrated, highly accurate, 10-point multi-touch overlay. This makes it an ideal interactive product for galleries and museums, where visuals must be depicted with as much clarity as possible, while the touch capability allows visitors to interact with the content.
World’s Largest Professional Display
Sharp continues to lead the large-size panel industry with its 90-inch class PN-R903 – the world’s largest professional-grade LED Display. With its breathtaking size, the PN-R903 is favored for a variety of applications where bigger is better. Users often take advantage of its ability to display images in real-life size, particularly when mounted vertically – offering benefits to many retail environments.
Displayed for the first time at InfoComm 2013 will be the new 60-inch class and 70-inch (69.5″ diagonal) class PN-R models. Like the 90-inch class, these displays boast high brightness, 700 candelas and LED backlighting. The 60-inch and 70-inch class have a slim, sleek design and are lightweight for fast and easy installation
Energy Efficiency and Slim Design
Sharp’s upcoming PN-U display series will be unveiled for the first time at the show. This series stands out for its slim design, LED backlighting, and full complement of input choices, including an easy-to use DisplayPort connector for fast computer integration. The addition of LED backlighting, which replaces CCFL technology, makes this series significantly more energy efficient. Its light weight makes it easy to hang, but solid construction ensures that it shares the durability and reliability of existing Sharp products. The series, fully compatible with Sharp Digital Signage Software, features 55-inch class, 47-inch class and 42-inch class models, all of which will be available this fall.
Making Collaboration Seamless
Sharp’s AQUOS BOARD((TM)) Interactive Display System is ideal in office and education environments with its collaborative and open standards properties, including its ability to wirelessly collaborate with both iOS and Andriod tablets. The AQUOS BOARD will also be demonstrated highlighting real-world use in interactive signage applications.
