Sharp will introduce into the Japanese market a 108V-inch LCD monitor, the world?s largest, for business and commercial applications.
This monitor will be delivered to the Shinjuku Piccadilly cinema complex (Shochiku Co. Ltd.), one of Tokyo's premier multiplex movie theaters, which is set to open July 19, 2008. In the future, Sharp plans to expand sales to the global marketplace.
This unit features a widescreen 108V-inch Advanced Super View LCD panel, the maximum size that a single 8th-generation glass substrate (2,160 x 2,460 mm) manufactured at Kameyama Plant No. 2 can yield. The large display area is nearly equivalent in size to two tatami mats (approx. 3.2 m2) and can convey images to many people in wide interior spaces. Plus, a rich assortment of inputs, including HDMI and DVI-I connectors, provides greater connectivity with a wide variety of equipment and devices, and a fan-less design that minimizes noise.
