The AQUOS LC-46D62U sets a new standard for large-screen flat-panel TVs. With Full HD Spec 1080p resolution, dramatically enhanced black level and an elegant new design, it produces a breathtaking picture quality that is second to none. The AQUOS LC-46D62U utilizes the next generation of Sharpâ€™s proprietary Advanced Super View/Black TFT Panel with multi-pixel technology, providing a native 2000:1 Contrast Ratio and a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 10,000:1 with Enhanced Picture Contrast Technology, 4ms response time and wide viewing angles (176Âº H x 176Âº V). The AQUOS LC-46D62U has built-in ATSC / QAM / NTSC tuners and includes 2 HDMI inputs, is compatible with 1080p signals, and has 2 HD component video inputs. The AQUOS LC-46D62 features a sleek piano black cabinet with subtle, recessed bottom-mounted speakers, and the included table stand easily removes for wall mounting applications.
The newest AQUOS series feature a next-generation Advanced Super View LCD panel that delivers full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) resolution for the fastest response rates and highest contrast ratio for the sharpest possible picture.
Full HD Resolution
Simply put, nothing competes to the AQUOS 1080p full high definition experience. You enjoy HDTV in its purest, most exhilarating form. True 16:9 widescreen provides a cinematic experience optimized for your natural line of sight. And AQUOS 1080p delivers twice the digital and double resolution of 720p HDTV.
Resolution describes the number of pixels on a digital television screen. More pixels give the picture more lifelike detail. Higher pixel density provides added clarity for digital TV, DVD, and HDTV. This fine resolution means you can view the large screen even from a close distance. For example, you can comfortably view a 45-inch screen from about 5.6-feet away.
AQUOS Liquid Crystal Televisions deliver very high resolutions for a clear, smoother picture. Our widescreen models meet the highest standards for HDTV viewing and provide a true 16:9 aspect ratio. With stunning resolutions up to 1920 x 1080, they capture the full excitement and intensity of high definition.
Contrast and Brightness
Sharp's D62U series of liquid crystal Televisions offer the industry's highest native contrast ratio of 2,000:1 and highest dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1. With these superior contrast levels, you can enjoy a quality viewing experience in any viewing environment. Sharp's new proprietary Advanced Superior View/Black TFT Panel decreases color shift, enabling a high native contrast ratio of 2,000:1. Native contrast is the contrast within one image frame. Sharp's new proprietary Enhanced Picture Contrast technology results in a dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000:1. Dynamic contrast is the contrast between the lightest and darkest colors AQUOS can display. Enhanced picture Contrast detects the black level characteristics of the image source and dynamically adjusts the backlighting accordingly to display deeper blacks.
Four Spectrum Color:
Sharp has added a deep crimson to the three standard primary colors of blue green and red on all AQUOS models. This four-wavelength backlight beautifully reproduces all the varied skin tones, making people's skin look fresher and more lively, and objects such as red wine look deeper and riper. This is only possible by broadening the color range.
AQUOS Liquid Crystal Televisions feature a low-reflection Black TFT panel that reduces the glare of ambient light, no matter where the light is coming from or how much light is present in the room. Even in a bright, sunlit room, AQUOS glare reduction ensures crisp images.
AQUOS technology has improved its response time to 4ms, #1 in the industry for Liquid Crystal TV, and compatible with CRT technology. With less residual image on screen, AQUOS is perfect for watching fast-moving images such as sports, movies with subtitles, video games, and action movies.
Black is back. And better than ever.
In a world where color trends come and go, Sharp is excited to introduce its new contemporary classicâ€”the D62U Series. With screen sizes of 42-, 46- and 52-inches, the D62U Series offers the most elegant, cutting-edge flat panel televisions available. This series sets new standards in HDTV style and innovation, with a striking piano black finish, subtly recessed speakers, brilliant color reproduction and spectacular picture quality. In addition to providing a high contrast ratio, the newest AQUOSÂ® series includes a next-generation Advanced Super View LCD panel that delivers 1080p full spec HD (1920 x 1080) resolution for the sharpest possible picture. Plus, its Multi-Pixel Technology* significantly improves color reproduction at virtually every viewing angle. The dual HDMIâ„¢ inputs are compatible with 1080p sources such as Blu-rayâ„¢ players. All of this means that, through the AQUOS, there is always more to see.
AQUOS Advanced Technology
Great style and performance do not just happen. It takes a commitment to quality, an incredibly talented team of professionals and a vision for innovation. Sharp, a global leader in Liquid Crystal Televisions year after year, brings all of this and more to our technology, continually raising the bar for outstanding quality and high performance.
* Multi-Pixel Technology: By dividing each pixel into two sections and developing an advanced driving system, Sharpâ€™s new Multi-Pixel Technology delivers more natural and accurate color reproduction when viewing the screen from virtually any angle. This technology improves extreme-angle viewing by approximately 60 percent.
* Next-Generation Advanced Super View LCD Panel: The purest whites. The deepest blacks. The most vivid range of color. Thatâ€™s what comes with Sharpâ€™s innovative LCD panel technology. The panel uses an enhanced color filter that allows greater light transmissionâ€”providing a greater native contrast ratio of up to 2000:1 and a response time as quick as 4ms for true film-like smoothness. This means richer color and a more accurate, more brilliant depiction of the world on screen.
* Four-Wavelength Backlight System: The conventional three-wavelength red, green and blue LCD backlight just got better. Sharp has vastly improved natural color reproduction with the development of its four-wavelength backlight system, adding a remarkably vivid crimson red to the paletteâ€”and changing the way LCD TV is viewed. The LC-57D90U takes the technology a step further with a five-wavelength backlight system, adding an even deeper green. With Sharp, the color possibilities are endless.
The most advanced facility for the integrated manufacture of LCD TVs.
The Sharp Liquid Crystal Television plant in Kameyama, Japan, represents the ultimate example of economic efficiency, social mindedness and environmental conservation. Combining Sharpâ€™s vast experience and knowledge in R&D and mass production, including 50 years of TV and 30 years of LCD production, the Sharp Kameyama plant is a world-class facility for the manufacture and assembly of LCD panels.
Continuing its leadership, Sharp will open a second plant at Kameyama in October 2006. This will be the worldâ€™s first facility to adopt 8th generation glass substrates, which are roughly twice as large as the substrates used in the number one plant. Plant number two is specially designed for the production of glass for LC-TV screen sizes in the 40-inch through 50-inch range and will provide a steady supply of medium to large panels to respond to the growing worldwide demand for digital and high definition compatible flat panel televisions.
The most advanced technology to minimize environmental impact
The Kameyama plant was designed as a "Super Green Factory." A cogeneration system and a photovoltaic power generation system supply the plant with approximately one-third of its energy needs. Combined with a waste-heat recovery system that transforms waste heat into air conditioning, Sharp reduces CO2 emissions by 40 percent per year. In addition, the plant collects all the wastewater from the production process and recycles it using water purification technology. Via its Super Green Strategy, by the year 2010, Sharp plans to completely offset its production of greenhouse gas emissions by way of energy savings from new energy-efficient products and energy creation through the proliferation of Sharp solar cells.
