Sharp Elite PRO-60X5FD / 70X5FD LED LCD 3D THX HDTVs


Sharp just released two Elite LED LCD HDTVs, the PRO-60X5FD (60-inch) and PRO-70X5FD (70-inch), claiming to offer the highest caliber picture quality and technology available. The Elite Televisions use Intelligent Variable Contrast technology to automatically controls brightness and backlight to create depth of color, brilliance, detail and dark areas.

Elite LCD televisions incorporate proprietary RGB+Y technology, which adds a yellow sub-pixel to the standard red/green/blue color palette. The addition of the yellow sub-pixel enables the reproduction of a much broader range of colors. RGB+Y technology creates higher brightness using less power and more accurately depicts vivid yellows and vibrant golds. RGB+Y technology makes possible Precision Color Plus, four sub-pixels composed of smaller dots, creating more than 8 million dots per screen for a much smoother, more appealing detailed image.

In addition, both TVs are THX and ISF (Imaging Science Foundation) certified and offer 3D functionality with two sets of active shutter 3D glasses included.
