The Evolution of AQUOS LCD TV

SHARP LCD TV 2010 Lineup for Asia

J PANESE PERFECTION.

Enter a shop where they sell LCD TVs. They look all the same. Examine all the brands. Evaluate the quality of image, the crispness of colour, the reliability of Japanese technology, and the elegance of design. Then choose the one that convinces you the most. AQUOS. The difference is Sharp

With plants for leading-edge LCD panels and thin-film solar cells*1, the new Green Front Sakai factory complex will ensure the most efficient manufacturing processes and consumption of energy. In Sakai, Sharp will produce LCD panels for TVs that are the worlds top class in every respect: image quality, performance and cost. The complex combines in an ideal way the production of LCD panels and Sharp thin-film solar cells as the biggest*2 solar factory worldwide with a production capacity of one gigawatt.
Portions indicated by dotted lines and rooftop solar cell panels are an artists concept of the completed appearance. *1 The thin-film solar-cell plant is scheduled to start production by March 2010. *2 Based on publicly available information as of February 2010.

During its 50-year history, Sharp has produced solar cells with a total capacity of more than two gigawatts and is thus the worlds largest* photovoltaic manufacturer. Crystalline photovoltaic modules, thin-film solar modules, light concentrators Sharp develops more solar technologies than any other manufacturer.
* Based on publicly available information as of February 2010.

As a technology company with an environmental approach, Sharp produces innovative LED products like LED lamps and solar street lights with integrated LEDs. In 2009, Sharp presented the LED backlight the next generation in Sharp AQUOS LCD TVs. The new backlight technology can control more than 1,000 LEDs individually. Due to this innovative technology, the image is even sharper, the colours are more brilliant and the ecological characteristics are better than ever before.

ENVIRONMENT L LY FRIENDLY.

Making a Tangible Contribution to Environmental Protection What qualities should a product have? There are a thousand answers to this question. But one point is becoming increasingly important: environmental friendliness. Let us be honest. Many manufacturers today make good products. But few produce green products. Sharp wants to be a pioneer in this area and is committed to the protection of the natural resources on which our lives are based. So we want to make a contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions worldwide when we are manufacturing products that generate and save energy. Already in 2005 Sharp could officially prove that its TVs are environmentally advanced. We are very proud to introduce the example of Europe, where our LCD TVs are the first TV devices to bear the official environmental seal of the EU, the EU Eco-label. It can already be seen adorning nearly our complete current TV line-up.

Green is the answer.

Improve Your CO2 Footprint With our 40LE700M, 46/40LB700M, 40L55M, 40L50M, 60/52/46/42A77M, 46/42/37/32A66M and 32A37M, Sharp has shown already how easy saving can be. These models are equipped with advanced optical picture control (OPC), which helps to reduce the power consumption according to the room brightness. Environmentally friendly features include the long-life backlight, eco-oriented materials and design convenient for recycling.

Innovation Meets Ecology Outstanding examples are presented with our new 40LE700M and 46/40LB700M. Extremely low power consumption, a mercury-free backlight, resource saving in design and packaging and high recyclability characterize this series.

Exquisite Artistic Design Provides a Superior Sense of Integration with the Wall.

New World of Images Achieved with AQUOS LED System


AQUOS LED System
Sharps most advanced technology combines an X-Gen panel and ultra-brilliant LEDs for an enhanced effect to provide crystal-clear images. The integration of these two technology elements produces a superior level of picture quality. Also, the system provides an excellent reduction in energy consumption.

Mega Contrast
With a full LED backlight, luminance can be controlled with greater precision than with a CCFL backlight because of the differences in intensity control properties. Compared to the modulation rate of a typical CCFL backlight, the ultra-bright LED backlight is capable of modulating down to an unbelievable rate.

Crystal Clear Technology


A conventional panel diffuses light at the surface, resulting in reduced picture intensity and compromised black levels. The Crystal Clear technology deflects light at nearly equal intensity, drawing it away from the screen and achieving deep black levels.
Conventional technology Crystal Clear technology

100Hz/120Hz Fine Motion Advanced


AQUOS models use 100Hz/120Hz Fine Motion Advanced technology developed from Sharps highly advanced LCD technology. This provides a picture with 100/120 frames per second (double the conventional 50/60 frames per second) by supplementing the picture with Sharps unique algorithm. Also, the technology coupled with the Advanced Super View LCD developed for high-speed moving images provides smooth and clear pictures for quick-moving sports scenes and clear lettering in moving captions without motion blur. (40LE700M, 46/40LB700M, 40L55M and 60/52/46/42A77M)

New Generation of Environmental Performance from the 40LE700M and 46/40LB700M


P Full LED With the Sharp full LED system, the distance from the LED light source to the screen is shorter than when using the conventional edge light method. This reduces the light required to view the same picture and decreases power consumption. P X-Gen Panel Compared to the conventional Advanced Super View panel, the new X-Gen panel has a wider aperture ratio, allowing easy light transmission through the panel. This greatly helps to achieve a high contrast ratio with less power. P Long-life 100,000-hour LED Backlight Through the use of a direct LED backlight system, Sharp has achieved a backlight operation of 100,000 hours before brightness decreases by one half. This provides a longer service life than conventional CCFL systems. P Optical Picture Control (OPC) OPC automatically adjusts the screen brightness according to the ambient room brightness. This is not only eco-friendly, since it leads to greater conservation of energy, but also easy on the eyes. P No-Signal Off / No-Operation Off The TV automatically switches into standby mode to reduce power consumption if there is no signal for 15 minutes or no operation for a preset time, such as 30 minutes or three hours. P Resource Saving The environmentally advanced design allows a reduced use of resources for the product and its packaging. P Mercury Free The LED backlight is made without mercury, which reduces the burden on the environment.

Revolutionary Dynamic Sound System (RDSS)


Large-screen LCD TVs have been plagued by vibration noise due to resonance frequencies while reproducing highvolume deep bass. Sharp solves this problem by creating a compact but large-volume speaker system that reproduces dynamic bass with the Revolutionary Dynamic Sound System (RDSS). The system uses an active (powered) speaker and twin passive (unpowered) speakers.

The digital filter in Sharps RDSS adjusts the sound wave frequency distortion that occurs in small speakers, enabling output of low-frequency sound beyond the usual limit.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

AQUOS LCD TV
Full-HD 1080P AQUOS LED
Full HDTV resolution in progressive format The AQUOS LED system enables ultra-high contrast, higher colour purity, high brightness and a wide viewing angle.

Dolby Digital

Dolby Digital surround is commonly used with Blu-ray and DVD players. It is compatible with 5.1-channel surround sound and provides life-like dynamic sound playback.

DTS 2.0 + Digital Out

MEGA Contrast

Sharps proprietary LED backlight technology enables amazing contrast and vivid colours.

DTS 2.0 + Digital Out is commonly used with BD and DVD players. Compatible with 5.1-channel surround, it can reproduce high-quality, dynamic sound with realism.

100Hz/120Hz Fine Motion Advanced

Teletext

The full-HD panel uses a newly developed 100Hz/120Hz Fine Motion Advanced technology that recreates images with twice the number of frames as conventional systems, resulting in a high response speed for moving scenes.

Teletext information is broadcast in the vertical blanking interval between image frames in a broadcast television signal.

24P Cinema Input

The 24p format is the native rate used for movie source material shot at 24 frames per second. With 24p material input from a Blu-ray player, the AQUOS can produce the unaltered cinema image just as it was intended.

High-Definition Multimedia Interface

HDMI is an interface for digital audio/video signals. HDMI is compatible with the HDCP copy protection standard.

AQUOS LINK

By connecting an AQUOS unit and a Sharp Blu-ray Disc player using an HDMI cable, the player can be easily operated using the AQUOS remote control.

Bass Enhancer

The Bass Enhancer system creates powerfull bass at low frequencies befitting a large display by using an advanced digital system. Both SRS TruSurround XT and SRS TruSurround HD produce a multichannel audio experience that creates a sensation of being surrounded by sound while using only two front-facing speakers. The listener can experience 5.1-channel content without needing five speakers and a subwoofer. In addition, dialogue is produced with greater clarity and enhanced bass is delivered even from small speakers.

SRS TruSurround XT/SRS TruSurround HD

Optical Picture Control (OPC)

Power consumption during operation is automatically reduced by controlling the backlight brightness according to the room lighting conditions.
