Following the release of the 70″ class AQUOS® 4K Ultra HD LED television, the first TV to receive the coveted THX 4K certification for picture quality, Sharp Electronics Corporation, along with the help of two other expert voices in picture quality, THX and RED, has announced the “Art of Amazing 4K Film Competition.” Sharp is inviting independent filmmakers to celebrate the detail of 4K resolution by creating a short film (less than four minutes in length) that captures an amazing high resolution entertainment experience through “energy, light and scale.”
Sharp has announced the availability of its 70-inch AQUOS 4K Ultra HDTV in the United States at select retailers and Amazon.com for $7,499.99. The Sharp LC-70UD1U is the first 4K Ultra HDTV to pass 400 Hollywood expert tests established by the THX 4K Certified Display Program, making it the crème de la crème in Ultra High Definition. We had a chance to see this beauty in action at CES 2013, definitely the “Sharpest” Ultra HDTV we experienced — hands down.
Owners of the $699 Sony 4K Ultra HD media player are now able to access over 70 movies and TV shows in native 4K Ultra HD resolution. The company expects to grow the library to over 100 titles by the end of the year.
AUO has successfully developed UHD 4K technology and will demonstrate 65 and 55-inch next-generation UHD 4K Wide Color Gamut TV Panels, which are equipped with Wide Color Gamut (WCG) technology with saturation of over 100% NTSC. The panels feature Ultra HD resolution of 3840×2160 with 120Hz frame rate, and boast true colors with 3D-like effect to offer exquisitely fine images that transform viewers’ experiences.
The Ultra HD Player comes pre-loaded with 10 True 4K movies: The Amazing Spider-Man, Salt, The Karate Kid, The Other Guys, Battle: Los Angeles, That’s My Boy, Bad Teacher, Total Recall 2012, Taxi Driver, and The Bridge on the River Kwai.
