[CEATEC 2012] Sharp outs first 4K IGZO Display prototypes
Sharp unveiled at IFA 2012 a new series of high-resolution and low power display technology named IGZO, and today at CEATEC, Sharp went one step further by introducing two new 32” IGZO screens with one featuring a touchscreen and another more conventional one designed home entertainment.
For those who where under a rock the past few month, Sharp IGZO technology employed advanced IGZO oxide semiconductors enables Sharp to produce LCDs with smaller thin-film transistors and increased pixel transparency, thus allowing for lower energy consumption. In addition, proprietary UVA photo-alignment technology employed in Sharp’s AQUOS LCD TVs enables these displays to achieve high image quality.
While we were expecting Sharp to be stuck in the 7” and 10” area for its IGZO family, the company announced today that it will soon expend its line-up to 32” and beyond in order to offer unique 4K TVs like this very impressive 4K Touchscreen set-up (Video above).
While Sharp did not comment on any specific launch date, the company however announced that the first IGZO based devices will come around 2013!
