Sharp Aquos Beyond 4K TV:
Sharp at CES 2015 made a bold statement with the unveiling of their beyond 4K Ultra HD TV. It seems Sharp is heading for 8K although we are still getting used to 4K. At the unveiling press conference at CES 2015, this amazing technology blow me away. The specs are staggering with 66 million subpixels, 42 million more than standard 4K Ultra HD. With more subpixels, this TV is able to produce an image up to an effective 7640×4320 resolution. According to Sharp this next generation Proprietary Upscaler unleashes the full potential of this stunning resolution, whether it’s HD or 4K UHD content.
It will be in late 2015 starting at 80-inch (diag.) class screen size. I must say this TV delivers an amazing picture detail with the highest standard of colour and contrast. It is design with latest Quattron technology, which provides a billion more shades of colour, this TV displays more colour than any AQUOS TV before it. High Dynamic Range technology and a full array LED panel with local dimming provide extremely deep blacks and white whites.
As a tech guru, I’m surely excited but as a consumer sceptical considering the lack of native content and probably the heavy price tag that will come with it.
