Sharp to ship 60, 70-inch Aquos UD1 UHD TVs in Japan in June, August
Sharp is preparing to sell a pair of Ultra HD TVs in Japan, under the Aquos UD1 banner. The <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286039==http://www.sharp.co.jp/aquos/products/lc60ud1_outline.html" rel='nofollow'>LC-60UD1</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286040==http://www.sharp.co.jp/aquos/products/lc70ud1_outline.html" rel='nofollow'>LC-70UD1</a>, measuring 60 inches and 70 inches respectively, both take advantage of Sharp's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286041==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/10/25/sharp.looks.to.nature.for.display.inspiration.in.n ew.aquos.xl.series/" rel='nofollow'>previously-demonstrated</a> "Moth-Eye" technology, which uses a special layer above the LCD panel to significantly reduce glare, internal reflections, and light scattering. <br />
<br />
The two televisions will be able to display 4K images at a resolution of 3,840x2,160, and will use the newly developed Aquos 4K-Master Engine Pro for up-scaling and image processing, according <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/286042==http://av.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/20130521_600180.html" rel='nofollow'>to</a> <em>AV Watch</em>. It is also capable of showing 3D footage using optional active shutter glasses, while sound is provided by a 2.1-channel speaker system with a low-vibration woofer dubbed "DuoBass."<br />
<br />
The 70-inch model will be released on June 15th in Japan priced at 850,000 yen ($8,300), while the 60-inch variant will arrive on August 10th for 650,000 yen ($6,300). A release date for the UHD TVs in other territories has yet to be announced.
