LAS VEGAS, NV, January 6, 2010 -- Sharp Electronics debuts a LCD-TV utilizing a 240Hz refresh rate panel, enabling a superior picture for fast-moving entertainment content like movies and sports. Offering an affordable large-screen option, the new LC-60E88UN (60 1/32" diagonal) expands Sharp’s suite of 60-inch models, filling out a highly sought-after screen size. This Full HD 1080p model utilizes Sharp’s next-generation X-Gen Panel for stunning images and offers a new piano-black design to match the high-quality picture.
“The recent opening of Sharp’s state-of-the-art Sakai City LCD factory has enabled us to greatly increase efficiency for producing larger screen sizes, allowing more and more consumers to bring home affordable large-screen TVs,” said Bob Scaglione, senior vice president and group manager, Product and Marketing Group, Sharp. “This new 60-inch model offers a new popular size and with a 240Hz refresh rate panel, it provides the ultimate medium for sports and movie buffs.”
The LC-60E88UN employs Sharp’s proprietary Full HD 1080p X-Gen LCD panel with UV2A technology and 10-bit processing for a dramatically bright and clear picture. The X-Gen panel is designed with advanced pixel control to minimize light leakage, producing extremely deep black levels. The X-Gen panel also provides a wider aperture to allow more light to pass through the panel, resulting in higher peak brightness. A special dejudder feature results in the smooth reproduction of film content. Combining the X-Gen panel with a 240Hz Fine Motion Advanced technology, this TV is ready for high-definition viewing of fast-action imagery.
The new LC-60E88UN is compliant with ENERGY STAR Version 4.0 standards and is equipped with Sharp’s OPC function that automatically adjusts the unit’s brightness based on the lighting of the room.
- Four HDMI® with Instaport™ quick switching to avoid delay when switching between sources
- 1080p component video input; S-video input
- RS-232C input for custom installations
- PC input so the TV serves a dual purpose as a PC monitor
- The LC-60E88UN will be available in February, pricing to be determined.
