Are you already tired of all the crisp 4K video at your disposal? Are you longing for more?
Japanese multinational launches the world's first 8K TV
Sharp is positioning the TV as a monitor for businesses that can make use of the ultra-high resolution of the TV.
There could be a $133,000 solution available for you to switch it up soon. Sharp has announced what is technically the world’s first 8K production TV, the LV-85001.
Technically speaking, this 85-inch monitor does have a TV tuner in it but will not pick up any 8K content yet – though it may be used to help tests broadcasts next year.
Instead, Sharp is positioning the TV as a monitor for businesses that can make use of the ultra-high resolution of the TV.
8K has dimensions of 7680 x 4320, which the same as 14 pixels per inch based on the 85-inch size. 8K outputs also require the use of four HDMI 2.0 inputs.
Sharp says the IGZO panel’s contrast ratio is 100,000:1 with viewing angle of 176 degrees. The company says it will be available for purchase from October 31, after a demonstration at the CEATEC trade show early next month.
