Thin is Still In! Sharp Introduces Ultra High-Resolution Displays with the Industry's Thinnest Design

This week at CES in Las Vegas, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America, a division of Sharp Electronics Corporation, is presenting its new 32" class professional LCD monitor series, which features Sharp's ground-breaking IGZO technology and touts 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution.

"As we introduce Sharp's proprietary IGZO technology into the first series of professional display products, we continue to drive innovation with game-changing functionality"

According to industry research, demand for Ultra High-Definition displays, commonly referred to as "4K2K", is forecast to grow across numerous industries and verticals, including graphics and video editing and production, financial-services operations that require intensive use of graphs and small text, and computer aided design (CAD) professions that create detailed digital drawings or blueprints. The IGZO professional display series from Sharp delivers ultra high resolution (3,840 × 2,160 pixels), which is four times the pixel resolution of full 1080p high definition.

"As we introduce Sharp's proprietary IGZO technology into the first series of professional display products, we continue to drive innovation with game-changing functionality," said Doug Albregts, president, Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America. "We are not only excited about the initial application of this new technology, but foresee broad usage throughout complementary industries where high definition viewing is demanded."

Featuring much smaller thin-film transistors (TFTs) as compared to conventional displays, IGZO technology also significantly increases the amount of light transmitted per pixel. As a result, these advanced displays portray vibrant and crisp content with the ability to zoom in to examine the detail of a picture or text, or pan out to view content from a wider angle. This can help boost operational efficiency and reduce eyestrain by sparing users the need to scroll frequently.
