All-in-One 3D TV with Built-in Blu-ray Disc Player/Recorder; 4th in the AQUOS Quattron Series
Sharp will release two models in the new LB Series of AQUOS Quattron 3D LCD TVs, the 52-inch LC-52LB3 and the 46-inch LC-46LB3. The LCD panels in the LB Series use Sharp's proprietary four-primary-color technology, and both models feature 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc (BD) recorders.
Four-primary-color technology was developed by Sharp based on its proprietary UV2A technology. This technology adds Y (yellow) to the three RGB (red, green, blue) primary colors and significantly improves light utilization efficiency to provide a brightness approximately 1.8 times greater than conventional three-primary-color LCD panels, enabling users to enjoy vivid, impressive 2D and 3D images. In addition, these models are equipped with a new Quattron Pure Mode that automatically optimizes high-definition images to match the four-primary-color technology, resulting in smooth, natural reproduction of images from the built-in Blu-ray Disc recorder.
The built-in 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc recorder enables viewers to enjoy Blu-ray 3D video using a single unit. Plus, these recorders are compatible with BDXL, the new format for multi-layer recordable Blu-ray Discs, and can record up to approximately 87 hours of HDTV programming in extended recording mode.
