INTRODUCING AQUOS QUATTRON 3D FROM SHARPAvailable in 60- and 52-inch screen size classes, the new AQUOS Quattron 3D TVs employ Sharp's breakthrough quad pixel technology
-AQUOS® Quattron™ 3D system offers brightest 3D image resolution on the market
Atlanta, GA, September 23, 2010 -- Sharp Electronics Corporation today introduces its first 3D LED LCD televisions for the U.S. market, the AQUOS Quattron 3D LE925 series. Available in 60- and 52-inch screen size classes (LC-60LE925UN and LC-52LE925UN, respectively), the new AQUOS Quattron 3D TVs employ Sharp's breakthrough quad pixel technology and additional proprietary technologies, including the X-Gen LCD panel, Frame Rate Enhanced Driving and LED backlight side-mount scanning, to deliver a superior 3D experience with the brightest image reproduction on the market (with glasses) and extremely low crosstalk. In addition, 3 "Spacious Sound 3D" modes complete the immersive experience when viewing concerts, movies, or other 3D programming.
"Quattron 3D overcomes the dark and blurry images associated with traditional 3D televisions so the consumer can realize the full potential of this compelling new format," said Bob Scaglione, senior vice president and group manager, Sharp Electronics Corporation. "Quattron, which combines quad pixel technology and the X-Gen LCD panel, provides a foundation for 3D that other manufacturers simply cannot match. Adding Frame Rate Enhanced Driving technology and other unique features allows us to deliver a 3D experience that’s second to none."
Quattron 3D – A Superior 3D Experience
Quattron 3D also utilizes Sharp's proprietary Frame Rate Enhanced Driving technology, which uses single-source wiring in the AquoMotion 240 driving circuit, enabling wider aperture and thus very bright 3D images to be reproduced with exceptionally low power consumption. Further clarifying the image is the newly developed LED backlight scanning technology, which helps to eliminate crosstalk.
Enabling users to start experiencing and sharing the 3D experience immediately, each model in the 925 Series includes 2 pairs of advanced 3D glasses. These are the only glasses on the market that give viewers the option of watching the same content in 3D or 2D simultaneously, which can be adjusted using the 3D-2D conversion button on the glasses. Additional glasses are available for purchase (model# AN-3DG10-S).
Spacious Sound 3D offers 3 audio options, that can be adjusted to users' tastes, for watching movies, concerts and other 3D content.
Enhanced Technology for a Stunning Picture – in 2D and 3D
The LE925 series also includes IP Control technology. Similar to the conventional RS-232C usage, the IP control feature enables a PC or Control Panel to control basic TV functions, video and audio equipment, and lighting via the Ethernet terminal. The IP Control technology is Control4® Certified and has been rigorously tested in Control4® Labs for interoperability with the Control4® platform.
Both models are sold with a USB WiFi adapter to facilitate quick access to streaming and other Web-based applications. A built-in USB media player and dual USB inputs enable immediate enjoyment of digital video, music and photos. In addition to conventional RS-232C connectivity, both models offer IP control, which enables a PC or universal control device to control basic TV functions via Ethernet terminals with both wired and wireless connection using a wireless LAN USB adapter.
The LE925 Series sports a contemporary design that complements the elegance of modern home theaters with 1.6-inch thin depth and full-front glass that extends to meet the borders. These models also boast extremely low power consumption, compliant with ENERGY STAR® version 5.1 (2012) standard, and are equipped with Sharp's OPC function, automatically adjusting the unit's brightness based on the lighting of the room.
