The Sharp AQUOS XU Series: The World’s First 4K TV with 8K Resolution
After previewing its newest TV innovations at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Sharp is now launching the newest and best AQUOS TV lineup – the first 4K TV with 8K Resolution, the Sharp AQUOS XU Series (LC-80XU930X/LC-70XU830X). One of the 2015 CES Innovation Award Honorees and touted as the highest resolution 4K TV, the XU Series raises the bar when it comes to home entertainment and leads the way to the future of high definition.
The World's First 4K TV with 8K Resolution
Sharp AQUOS XU Series achieves 8K Resolution on a 4K Ultra HD panel* by combining Sharp’s proprietary Quattron Pro 4-Color Technology and its newest upscaling circuit, the X8-Master Engine Pro. Both work together to achieve resolution equivalent to 8K by upscaling Full HD and 4K UHD content. The result: true-to-life detail, the most vivid color expression, and deepest contrast.
Aside from providing the highest resolution on a 4K TV, the XU Series also displays more color, compared to conventional TV models*. With its Rich Color Pro Technology, boosted by a new direct LED backlight system and Ultra Dynamic Range Pro, the XU Series expands its color range reproduction and provides the deepest contrasts in its blacks and whites. Rich Color Pro Technology enhances the power of 4-Color Technology with a new direct backlight that expands the color reproduction range by 40%, displaying a wider array of vivid and true-to-life colors. Ultra Dynamic Range Pro utilizes the new direct backlight with a control area dimming technology, which switches off the backlight in dark areas to achieve darkest blacks and brightens up light areas for the brightest whites, thereby producing great contrast.
