Sharp Electronics is now shipping all four of the LE830 Series AQUOS Quattron LED LCD TV models it introduced at CES in March, including models in 60-, 52-, 46- and 40-inch screen sizes.
Sharp's AQUOS Quattron LE830U.
All models employ Sharp’s proprietary edge-lit LED X-Gen LCD panels and Quattron Quad Pixel Technology. Built-in Wi-Fi in all models delivers network functionality such as video streaming from the internet and throughout the home.
Each AQUOS Quattron model features Sharp’s proprietary Quad Pixel Technology that adds the color Y (yellow) to the three colors of R (red), G (green), and B (blue) of the traditional television pixel structure. This technology is designed to enable the reproduction of colors that have been difficult to portray using conventional LCD displays, according to the company. The addition of the yellow sub-pixel also allows more light to pass through to the panel.
The models also offer built-in Wi-Fi and access to Netflix, VUDU and CinemaNow, as well as four HDMI inputs for simple connections to multiple HD components.
The new AQUOS Quattron TVs are Energy Star 5.1 qualified. Last week, Sharp Electronics was selected to receive a 2011 Excellence in Energy Efficient Product Design Award from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Energy Star program.
