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.

Advanced Connectivity

  • 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

Availability

  •  The LC-60E88UN will be available in February, pricing to be determined.
