Sharp will introduce into the Japanese market two models in
the new LB Series of AQUOS Quattron 3D LCD TVs. The LCD panels
in the LB Series (52V- and 46V-inch) use Sharp's proprietary
four-primary-color technology, and both models feature
3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc (BD) recorders.
The LCD panels in the LB Series use four-primary-color
technology developed by Sharp based on its proprietary UV2A
technology. This technology adds Y (yellow) to the three RGB
(red, green, blue) primary colors and significantly improves
light utilization efficiency to provide a brightness
approximately 1.8 times greater than conventional
three-primary-color LCD panels, according to Sharp. In
addition, these models are equipped with a new Quattron Pure
Mode that automatically optimizes high-definition images to
match the four-primary-color technology, resulting in smooth,
reproduction of images from the built-in Blu-ray Disc recorder.
The built-in 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc recorder enables
viewers to enjoy Blu-ray 3D video using a single unit. Plus,
these recorders are compatible with BDXL, the new format for
multi-layer recordable Blu-ray Discs, and can record up to
approximately 87 hours of high-definition TV programming in
extended recording mode (In 10X extended record mode using
triple-layer Blu-ray Disc media.)
These models also offer functions for enhanced connectivity
with peripheral devices such as digital cameras and mobile
phones, and support wireless LAN adaptors.
Both the new LC-52LB3 and LC-46LB3 models will be available in
Japan in the 15th of November.
