Sharp announced its flagship model for 2012, the 80-inch LC-80LE844U Quattron 3D LED Full HD 1080p TV featuring picture quality enhancements, advanced smart connectivity and a new design. Sharp will continue to offer last year's 80-inch LC-80LE632U, while the new 80-inch adds 3D, Sharp's Quattron technology with full array LED backlighting, a newly developed 240Hz AQUOS LCD panel to virtually eliminate blur during fast-moving video, plus built-in Wi-Fi, 4 HDMI inputs and the new SmartCentral user interface.
Sharp's SmartCentral is a newly designed easy to use, intuitive and customizable user interface. Designed to be the hub of the Sharp TV experience, it offers such features as picture-in-picture, content search, Web browsing capability, and access to the most popular apps including Netflix, Hulu, Facebook, CinemaNow and YouTube among others. Users can also customize their experience with personalized settings.
Another smart feature is Sharp AQUOS Beamzit, a free media-sharing app that allows users to wirelessly send photos, music and video to a Sharp AQUOS Wi-Fi enabled television from their IOS or Android smart phone or tablet.
